  1. The map certainly lends itself to playing out the Dieppe raid in 1942 with Spitfire Vs and the first few IXs. There's also the possibility of the Amiens raid (Operation Jericho, Feb 44) in Mossies and Tiffies.
  2. Yes, I get that it's only the German ones and only the Hakenkreuz. I thought your post meant that you had included all German aircraft from all expansions in the update and that's why it was so large. Obviously not. Thanks anyway.
  3. @VBF-12_Stick-95 The new skin pack seems to only contain the five BoBP aircraft. I have the other pack installed and if want the new pack activated at the same time it throws up an error message as follows: Folder "data\swf\il2\worldobjects" has already been added by the "Historically Correct German Official Skins for BoM-BoS-BoK" mod. Folder "data\swf\il2\worldobjects\planes" has already been added by the "Historically Correct German Official Skins for BoM-BoS-BoK" mod. Enabling this mod "may" have adverse effects on your game. Are you sure you wish to enable this mod? EDIT: Never mind. I have manually combined the two and that works fine. I'm pretty sure that the link only gives the five aircraft though.
  4. Bunny provides free tea and biscuits during the interview as well. If you ask him nicely he'll show you his pictures of the CO in lederhosen.
  5. Both I and some of my friends that build missions for our online squadron regularly experience issues with the Prokhorovka map in mission builder in that the editor crashes when we try going to 3D or the viewer in top-down rather than map mode. Here are the steps taken (Crash dump file attached). - Open Mission editor (STEditor.exe) - In Mission Properties box click on Terrain Presets - Select Prokhorovkasummer - Click Apply - Cancel the Save As or save as Test_Mission - UI map loads - Click on Toggle Camera or the 3d View option - Mission editor crashes - Windows Event Viewer records the following with Event ID 1000: Faulting application name: STEditor.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5cf900d8 Faulting module name: landscape.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x5cf900b9 Exception code: 0xc0000094 Fault offset: 0x000000000002c6c7 Faulting process ID: 0x3214 Faulting application start time: 0x01d55aa09b529974 Faulting application path: D:\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\bin\editor\STEditor.exe Faulting module path: D:\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\bin\editor\landscape.dll Report ID: cca806ff-5fb3-4840-9f41-2336d83bb652 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: My game is installed through Steam, not sure if that is relevant. I have tried deleting the two files in the directory structure with the name landscape.dll and then re-acquiring them through the Steam file verification tool. This issue has also been discussed on the forums with no fix or workaround identified in this thread thank you for your attention. STEditor.exe.12820.zip
  6. I believe you can buy the modules from whichever source you wish, though you will not have access to any early access content, so you would have to wait for full release to get the Bodenplatte content for example.
  7. We have just announced our next campaign, Lavochkins Assemble, which will commence on 8th September and is scheduled to run until just after the new year. As the name suggests we will mostly be flying the Lavochkin La-5FN during this campaign, but will also have some missions with everyone in Pe-2 series 87s. The campaign will cover the historical period from September 1943 to approximately January 1944 during which the VVS was supporting the Red Army landings at Yenikale, north-east of Kerch'. If this sounds like fun, pop by our website and drop in an application. Silk FC for TP Campaigns (Yes, I do get to choose the cheesy names for the campaigns)
  8. Tried the reset command and the map still will not open in top-down 2D view for me. I've even deleted Prokhorovka Presets folder and got it to reload from Steam via the file verification function. This is seriously annoying as I can't accurately place objects on the map.
  9. If you think of each 'expansion' as a plane set you won't go far wrong. You don't need to buy Battle of Stalingrad first for instane. If you are only interested in the Bodenplatte aircraft then just buy the pre-release for that and play the aircraft as they are released. The Bodenplatte single player content is not ready yet though, so no campaign or map for it. Multiplayer servers can use any map that the host owns in conjunction with any aircraft that they make available AND the player owns. For instance I could create and host a map where the Ju52 is available but could not fly a Ju52 on it because I do not own that aircraft, however someone else that does own it could fly on my map regardless of which version of the game the have as long as they own that one collector aircraft.
  10. What difference does it actually make tl your online mp server experience how someone wants to go througj the start up procedure? Does it make it easier for them to fly or navigate? Does it make them a better or worse pilot to not want to do this every time? Does it get them to the target significantly quicker? I don't believe that how engines are started will have any effect at all on other players. I do agree that management in the air once started is another matter. I'm not picking on this post or you in particular, it is just handy for me to state my personal opinion
  11. @JgonRedcorn not the same thing at all and you know it. This game has been functioning perfectly fine without this up until now, so why would they change it? I respect that you have your opinion about start-up procedures, so how about you be civil and respect my view equally?
  12. The trouble here is that we are now at the mercy of mp server admins with regard to what THEY want to see rather than what WE want to do This should be a player option, not a server option.
