I've had both IL2 and PF for years now, but only dabbled with them on occassion. But lately I've been really getting into both. However the basic versions were limited regarding nissions and I don't have the time to build my own, so I'd like to download missions from IL2 and PF websites. The problem is that most missions I can't play because I'm missing planes, maps, or something else.
Will the Ace Expansion Pack work for both of my stand alone versions? If not, what updates can I get to give me all the latest maps, planes, etc?
Your advice is appreciated.

When you say iL2 do you mean the original 'IL2'or 'IL2 Forgotten Battles'? There is a huge difference.

Other than that you should should really get the DVD 'Sturmovic 1946' which has all you need to get (all previous add-ons, FB + Aces Expasion pack + Pacific Fighters + Pe2 + Manchuria + 1946 and more) and is quite cheap, much better than fiddling with the other stuff and still not getting all there is to have.

You probably got both games in that cute little abomination that was put out by UbiSoft for the super-chains, that ridiculously misleading three-pack titled Ultimate Flight Collection.

Here's the scoop:
1. IL-2 Sturmovik doesn't have any expansions for it.
2. Standalone Pacific Fighters requires two earlier installments if you want to expand it. Not worth the trouble though because the new 1946 DVD has the entire game including expansions and patches. "One install does it all."

I put a lot of effort into explaining this last week in another post (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/49310655/m/1761055095)
