Whilst looking for the folder containing the generic pilot's pic for campaigns, I found a folder FULL of photos of people: all very russian or eastern european looking, all wearing a similar, uniform style high collar. The folder is:

IL2 Sturmovik\dgen\(various nationalities)

Since it's always the same pic in the campaign, anyone know what all these pictures are for? Are they to use to replace the generic campaign pilot? Templates for adding your own picture?

these photos are used for the other pilots in campaign missions. its actually seems pretty accurate as these photos are used for the pilots profile and the same face is used on the in-game pilots themselves. another interesting little FB detail, i guess.

just to expand on that a bit... what it allows you to do is not just have your own personal profile/pilot photo, but you can have a whole squad of friends, family members, etc. flying your planes. for instance, you could replace the profile pic (the large one of just the pilots) along with the pilot skin pic (the lower-left corner of the pilot bitmap) and have the persons face show up both on their campaign profile and on the pilots face of the plane they fly.
i planned to set up several other 'specialized' pilots mostly being of my favorite cartoon characters. i have a homer simpson as my pilot now and i hope to make a peter griffin pilot in the near future.

Thanks for the info, Shiesty! I'm pretty sure I understood all that LOL. Now I've gotta figure out how to add my pic so I can really fly my 3U!

I already have my quirky face flying my plane. Have done for a while! Looks kinda funny when i`m running from my burning plane. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
