Custom missions like the Battle of Britain, and how do I install them? I've also seen screenshots of the Pacific theater in IL2, is that some sort of mod?

The screenshots of the Pacific that you have seen are for an add-on called "Pacific Fighters" that hasn't been released yet. Extreme_One did make a very good Battle of Britain campaign; it and many others can be found here (http://netwings.org/library/Forgotten_Battles/Missions/) (Sorry I don't know exactly what page it's on). Unfortunately, the campaign doesn't include Spitfires because he did so before the release of the Ace Expansion Pack, which adds Zeroes, Spits, and many others.

Well, what version of IL2 do you have. the Zeros and Spits are on the Ace Expansion Pack for IL2 FB. You can try downloading a few missions and campaigns from www.netwings.org (http://www.netwings.org) and www.IL2Skins.com (http://www.IL2Skins.com) for skins for each aircraft.

This Ace expansion is retail, yes?

Yes it is, so will Pacific Fighters. Word is, is that you will be able to add PF to FB/AEP when its released or have it as a stand alone away from FB/AEP. Hope this helps.

It`s not a BoB sim but this can be recreated cuz there are planes.

FB+AEP+Extreme One`s BoB campaign = BoB

there are a couple of free extra planes in the pre-AEP patches but you are better off with AEP which includes those freebies and more

AEP is retail but once you have AEP you pick up another spit (themk IX)for free with the AEP patch

If you are playing original "IL-2 Sturmovik", then there is no hope of finding Zeros, Spitfires, Pacific Ocean, etc in it ... the developer's support for this version of the sim ceased when "IL-2 Forgotten Battles" was released.

If you are playing "IL-2 Sturmovik: Forgotten Battles" then you can patch up to v.1.22 and get a couple of flyable Japanese planes, a flyable P-51D and a small Pacific online map. However, further upgrades for FB basically stopped when "Ace Expansion Pack" was released; current upgrade patches are being released for AEP. (Yes, AEP is a commercial product, and it requires "Forgotten Battles" to use.)

AEP includes several versions of the Spitfire V and some more Japanese fighters. It also makes the Pacific online map usable in the Quick Mission Builder. Some flyable Spitfire IX's and AI B-25s were added in the first AEP upgrade patch.

"Pacific Fighters" is in development right now and will be released in a few months. It is advertised as being a 'stand-alone' product but will be able to be integrated into Ace Expansion Pack if you already own AEP. It will have the carriers, the Wildcat, Seafires, etc.

Alright, what about bombers? Is the B17 available through patches?

Kasdeya

Might be later on...dont know bout that one yet. We should be getting a bomber patch or something like it after the release of PF but aren't completely sure yet. *shrug* Hopefully.

An AI version of the B-17 was included in the 1.21 upgrade patch for "Forgotten Battles." That same AI B-17 is also on the AEP expansion disc. I haven't seen any progress updates that lead me to believe that the B-17 is being made flyable in the near future ...

The AI B-25s that were introduced into AEP upgrade patch v2.01 will supposedly be flyable someday, very likely only in "Pacific Fighters" but possibly in an AEP upgrade patch also.

If you are flying the original IL2 Forgotten Battles then go to Comp USA or EB Games and get the Aces add on. Then download 2 patches 2.01 and 2.04 from this site and you will be up to speed. If you are flying the original IL2 then get the IL2 Forgotten Battles Aces GOLD pack, which includes FB and the AEP and comes out a tad cheaper if you dont already have FB. Like Kas said missions can be had at Netwings and also here on this site.. at the missions (http://www.il2sturmovik.com/) page.
