  1. Thank Beazil but nothing there? I purchased directly through IL2 as well?? very confused....sorry
  2. Guys sorry I'm still struggling with this. Where do I find my license key in my IL2 profile please? I pre purchased Dessert Wings on 1st August and have a receipt from merchant xsolla confirming my purchase but don't see an activation code from IL2?? Please help!!!
  3. August 6th. Opened Steam it downloaded 6.5GB to Cliffs Of Dover Blitz. NO NEW CONTENT????? WHAT is going on?????
  4. For me I started on IL2 1946. I believe its till a great game but graphically it will not compare to BOS or CLOD but has a vast treasure chest of aircraft and campaigns to choose from. Its been moded so many times I stopped playing it because of glitches and problems but if you can get yours to run the engine sounds alone are worth the effort! B-17 and B-24 are both available as flyable aircraft and I believe you can download missions for them. However, the mission builder compared to the more recent BOS and CLOD is far easier to master. I remember a good few years ago creating a 16 ship mission of B-17's as lead pilot bombing the port of Le Havre taking of from East Anglia circa 1943. It worked out really well with Spitfire escorts, partly and tackled by Fw190's and BF110's. Probably about 50 AI in the sky at one point but it all seemed to run smoothly enough and that was about 5 years ago! Just search IL21946 for the most complete update pack. Good luck!
  5. Please don't shoot me! I have a very basic question to ask to the game designers of IL2 BOS. Why does the MB have to be so complicated? IL2 1946 and CLOD is so intuitive and easy and yet this platform seems to be so difficult to even put a basic mission file together! I love this game and prefer its game play and graphics to CLOD but have to say it would be a total master if the MB was easier and more straightforward.
  6. Hey guys Thanks for all your comments which is genuinely appreciated. It wasn't my intention to touch a nerve here just to make an observation. As far as 'early access' is concerned.....early access to what? All I have seen so far is more aircraft available. No. I'm not missing the point just feel that a few more aircraft to placate the punter after a number of months of.....no access is a bit disappointing that's all. I suppose its because we are all especially looking forward to a completely new campaign it gets a bit frustrating. Well. for me anyway. Best regards to all. Planesy.
  7. Hi team I just wondered when we are actually going to see the Bodenplatte map? It was mentioned way back in March this year along with B-25, P-38. P-51, Me 262 and Hawker Tempest but still we dont see anything happening soon? I purchased Bodenplatte a good while ago and feel that I haven't received what I paid for. I appreciate that your marketing style is we enable you to develop expansion of the franchise by purchasing up front but feel that the time frames are too long. May I suggest you do not 'advise' us of 'new content' until you have a better idea of a realistic time frame. £80.00 is a lot of money to fork out without actually seeing any merchandise apart from a few aircraft. In my humble opinion I feel the work load put on the programmers and developers is too much and sporadic. At present we have Tank Crew and Flying Circus as well all being thrown into the mix and this has to be a major cause of delay. I appreciate fellow gamer's all have different likes and dislikes but feel your announcements for new product would be best received when they are actually imminent for release. Please regards these comments as constructive and not derogatory. Kind regards, Planesy
  8. Hi! Can you please advise how I can pan the external view Camera using my track Ir? It seems to work by default on Cliffs of Dover but not sure how I bind the keys or enable this option? Hope you can help. Many thanks Planesy
  9. Hi all Can anyone please advise how I get the camera on external view to move using my Track IR please? Basically I like to record solo flights of aircraft and then play it back viewing my display externally from the ground but find it difficult panning the aircraft when it fly's by using the mouse or HAt POV You can do it in cliffs of Dover 'Blitz' but not sure how you do on BOS/BOM/BOK?? Thanks
  10. Not sure what the basis of your question is? The 109 is a very stable aeroplane at fairly low speeds so why you would want to lower the gear at 700 is beyond me? If its to test the dynamics and damage modeling of the sim then fair enough but frankly I wouldn't attempt to lower the gear above 160mph.
  11. Wow the 'Dora' and the P-47 look awesome. Cant wait to add them to my collection!
  12. Firstly I have to agree. For the period of aviation we are all obviously all totally enthusiastic about an excellent sound mod will be the definitive 'icing on the cake' for this brilliant flight sim. The aircraft sounds at present are OK especially from the ground but in the air they are hardly a representation. Ironically the new Merlin engine sound in Cliffs of Dover 'Blitz" is better than the Spitfire we have now in BOS/BOM/BOK or BOBP when released. Not sure if I am allowed to do this but here goes! Jason and his team are an excellent collection of simmers and engineers. How difficult would it be to take this https://www.soundsnap.com/tags/spitfire and put it in the dynamics and physics of the game? I have no real idea how computers work but a self confessed geek when it comes to all things warbirds! Anyhow just a comment/suggestion and regardless please keep up the good work. All the very best to the team and fellow gamers. Planesy.
  13. Hi Please can you tell me if Tigers V3.0 flyby mod will work in this version? I have re-installed IL2 1946 from the new steam upgrade to 4.13.4 and installed the VP modpack. downloaded Tigers flyby mod enabled it via the GSGME and it crashes after 60% I have checked the flyby files and I can play them individually so they are there just not playing when I hit F3. Any ideas please! Many thanks Planesy
  14. Guys IF I MAY ADD ONE FINAL COMMENT. I GUESS WHAT i WAS INITIALLY TRYING TO SAY WAS ......IF THE GAMES NOT BROKEN DON'T TRY TO FIX IT!! THAT'S WHY I WAS SO SURPRISED WHEN FC CAME OUT. WE REALLY WERE NOT LOOKING FOR ANOTHER WWI FLIGHT SIM. ROF HAS IT ALL. THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM HAVE DONE AN AMAZING JOB IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME FROM BOS, BOM, BOK AND NOW BOBP AS WELL AS TANK CREWS AND CAREER MODE. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO IMPRESS US DO SOME SHADOW BOXING WITH TEAM FUSION AND FIX CLOD AND THEN GO ON TO NORTH AFRICA, EUROPE AND BURMA!! I'M SURE EVERYONE WHO READS THIS WOULD THEN SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE AND GET THEIR CREDIT CARDS OUT BY THE THOUSANDS!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK GUYS. PLANESY
  15. In my opinion virtually no difference. I am surprised that the team have decided to develop ROF as in my opinion it was always one of the best flight sims out there and needed no further enhancement. I am sure some will view it as another way to create revenue and although I appreciate the developers need to earn money, and the fact they have offered a small discount to us original subscribers of ROF I would have thought it would have been better to create another theater of campaign such as North Africa or Burma. For the moment I wont be changing to FC and I dearly hope that ROF will still be available in the coming months? However, really looking forward to 'Bodenplatte' and who knows perhaps we can then create 'Normandy'!!
