sure it is your call i just se it as a unnecessary expense so i rather put that money on something else, and i don't install il2 that often, so having to fiddle with some disks one's in a year aint that strenuous that i need a dvd.

But the platinum dvd is really good for all newcomers but if you already have it i dont se a need to buy it, but that just me

For instance (and for me): I'll buy it to provide some actual and additional support to the developers, as a way of thanking them for so much improvement at no charge in something that I enjoy very much. The 'thank you Oleg' posts after free patches are very nice, and I've posted them too, but this is even better, IMO.

Cheers,
S.

The bat wing on the front page looks like the Go 229 which is already in the game.(hosts may have removed it from their online maps)

Have a look at Hardball's Aircraft Viewer, it has just been updated for v.4.04. It gives you a picture and specifications for all planes in IL2 FB-AEP-PF (regardless of what you have installed), flyable or not, and in two simultaneous views, so that you can easily compare one to another; it's a very useful tool. Find the info in this thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/26310365/m/1911066714) by the author.

Cheers,

P.S.: You can also get it here at Airwarfare (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#014), SimHQ was down for a while earlier.
