1) The 4.09 patch is a beta, and has no server patch yet, so unless you don't care about online gaming, I'd stay with 4.08 till a definitive 4.09 is out.

2) To change the water, you can do it only if you're in OpenGL mode (recommended mode, anyway). You can change it in the conf.ini file, in a variable which reads 'water=x', where 'x' can be 0 to 4. Beware that not all graphics cards support or look better with the highest options. It's also a frame-rate killer.

3) No, there are no *legal* mods. Most elements in this game are hardcoded. But you can download lots of missions, campaigns and skins for the game. It's easy to find them. There are also some nice utilities and tools. Check the "guide for nuggets" sticky thread above in this forum to know more. Use this link:

There are no mods to enhance the terrain, but some maps look a lot better than others.

AHHH!! I was hoping to see an enhancement over the terrain graphics. I dipped into the world of WoP for a bit and the graphics are so beautiful. Not the sim IL2 is but the eye candy makes you wonder what can be.

BurnerGPL, this is a very old thread, and out of date. The latest patch in 4.09m, rather than the earlier beta, and includes some new maps, as well as many other things. Though IL-2 terrain arguably isn't as good as some more modern sims, with a good graphics card and careful adjustment of settings, it can look pretty good - take a look at the High Rez Screen Shots thread: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/foru...283/m/1591012138/p/1 (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/1591012138/p/1)

The situation with mods has changed somewhat too, though we aren't allowed to provide links to mod forums etc.

Ultrapack (now version 2.1 I believe) is a mod pack that improves the look of the terrain a lot, it looks darker and sharper and less cartoonish than the stock game, also airplane textures look better, in short everything looks better. You also get a ton of new maps and planes and various other effects.

Just google Ultrapack mods for Il-2 and you should find it.

Thanks I'll do that.

In regards to the updated textures, will it effect standard connection to a 4.09m DF server? Will I see improvement on any map? Even custom? Or will only maps made with those textures all us to see improvement?

If you have a different version of the game running than what a server has, you can't join the server. So if you have 4.08m installed with no mods, you can't join a 4.09m server, and if you have mods activated you can't join a non-mod server. Fortunately you can turn UP on and off.

As far as I've seen the UP mods make all the maps look better.

Hello, it's been (quite) a while since I posted anything on this forum (back then I was still playing AEP 2.04 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif ) and a couple of weeks ago I bought 1946 and patched it to 4.08m. I like the muzzle flashes being smaller, the bunch of new planes etc., but I got a nasty surprise from the new FM! The russkie fighter planes are now a whole lot more difficult to fly (that new torque intuced roll is much bigger than in other nations' fighters-that forced to use trim for the first time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif =&gt; now I've noticed that german fighters don't have rudder trim http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif) Also, the HUGE energy bonus of AI planes (in the tempest i have trouble going after a g14) and their "battlestar galactica"-manouvres are maddening!!! Is there a way to adress the last issue, a patch or someting?

The AI planes being MASSIVELY more powerful must be a mod issue? becasue although they may have little advantages in the stock game, its only slight.
