Hello, I've been lurking around this forum for a little while now and just recently purchased IL-2 1946 and have decided to dive right into the game. I have been completely blown away! This game has turned into more than I could have asked for and I am looking to more fully experience it.
I have already come to appreciate how helpful the Il-2 community is and seek some guidance on getting some good quality reliable skins and maps I've searched around and have found many resources but it's all a bit overwhelming, so any personal preferences and experiences would be great.

My computer is a Gateway FX4710
6GB RAM
Intel core2 Quad 4 x 2.5GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT Video Card.

Thanks in advance for any help -Doug

Welcome to the Forums m8. You might want to try Mission 4 Today, Flying Legends or Sim HQ for skins and maps and of course the AAA site for the mods. Just google them.

Mission4today is your best bet for skins, missions, utilities and user made campaigns, there is some really fantastic stuff over there.

Just had a lok over at Sim HQ and there is really not very much there. Another site that has some skins is Combat Ace.

SimHQ is mainly forums and very good simming articles. However, they have a very big IL-2 community there.

Make sure you patch to 4.08 which gives you some new maps and skins.

Wow, Thanks for the quick replies. I have already upgraded to 4.08 and did all of the funny install things for Vista x64. I'll try out some of those sites.

Welcome.
What is the most amazing thing about Il2 is that you can fly it for many years and STILL see new things that you had never seen before.
