Sure, pay some cash royalties to UBI, Maddox, Grumman, Lockheed, BMW, etc..............

Then get a publisher/printer who will cheaply print the 14 copies that all 8 resident forum dweebs will snatch up.

You are better off asking the question in an email to oleg. Use the bug reporting email for starters. Oleg will be easy but for Western markets you will have to secure Ubi's release as well since they own the publishing/promotional rights.

Thanks Kapt_A, it looks like that's going to work.
I have some stories over at http://www.screenshotart.com/index.php?showtopic=10253


if you would to check them out.

Zebra, sorry if question is dumb?

I've looked up links you provide. In fact "stories" in there are lesser, than screenshots http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif What do you actually want to publish?

Make sure you use default skins only, or contact the skinners whose skins you use, so you can pay them too when publishing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Harh,what does that mean? "stories" in there are lesser, than screenshots.

Jutocsa , as far as I know all the enemy skins are defalt, they came with the game.
I did not download any of them.
All the Zebra Squadron skins are skins that I painted .

I could find public domain pictures and write stories about them but these screen shoots are from missions I have written and flown in IL-2.The stories are about what happened in the mission, That€s what makes them so cool.

So, you are talking about something like the campaign journals of airwarfare http://www.airwarfare.com/AWX/features/campaign_journals/
or our DiD diaries http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/5631091873 ?

neural_dream, thanks for the links, I have only written single missions so far, I have about 80 of them and have not uploaded any yet.
Yes something like campaign journals,
I call them Combat Logs. After I fly the mission, I go back and view the track file and look for a good screen shot then write about it.
