Me-262 over Stalingrad

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just a simple little mod to switch out I.JG3's aircraft with the Me-262, throughout the timeline of the Stalingrad career. 

 You can of course simply use air start, but there's enough runway for both takeoff and landing at Tusov; 20' flaps and tail-heavy stabiliser trim will get you off the ground nice and easy.

 

 I would recommend that you start career as the commander, as you can still assign other aircraft ahead of yourself in the flight order, but it will allow you to avoid the escort and ground cover mission types that are not particularly plausible in the Schwalbe. 

 

 For the next few days I only have an hour or so to myself before it's time for work, but I'll be using those hours to add versions of this for both Moscow and Kuban, so that people who only own those modules can join in the action!

Enjoy!

Thanks for the mod. For those of use that might need a little more instruction.

Could you please provide the steps to place your mode into the game . Thanks.

Hey, if you have JSGME installed then just activate in there as usual, if not;

 

 This mod is packaged following the same structure as the game's install. You can open up "262 over Stalingrad" and copy paste "data" into your game directory, which will then merge with your existing data folder.

 

 If you were then to open up the data folder, everything would appear as normal except for a folder entitled, if I remember rightly, "swg". That's where the modified files are, so uninstall is as simple as removing that folder.

 

 I would however recommend downloading JSGME, as it's a tremendously useful mod manager and will back up your original files when a mod is enabled, as well as ensuring you can still remember how to uninstall in a month's time!

 

 I don't know if you'll need to have mods enabled in game for this to work, but I would imagine you do, and it certainly does work with mods enabled at least. Happy flying!

No worries Hallex, a guy called Piro and I had been talking this over for a while, it just seemed like a good thing to do!

 

 I've added versions for BoM and BoK too now as well, and the latter is probably the best for planeset, you'll need to be rather more careful with your energy management than you do over Moscow.

PLEASE halp...

I have tried everything...I downloaded JSGME I put it in the data folder...ran it it created all the files (the MODs folder ect) I downloaded your Kuban version, unpacked it using Winrar dragged and dropped it into JSGME it put it into the mods folder, opened the game...and STILL there is no 262 in the list of planes for kuban...I thought maybe its coz the kuban one was broken on your end since you only had a day but I tried the Stalingrad one and that didn't work either (and yes I deactivated Kuban before activating Stalingrad)

Its in the career mod right?

Can you post a screenshot of what’s in your MODS folder? That could help.

You do have Mods activated via the game options?

Ah, the issue here is simple;

 JSGME doesn't go in the data folder, but one level above that, in the IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad folder. That's where the MODS folder goes too.

 

 What JSGME does, and all it does, is take the contents of the mod and copy paste them according to the folder structure in that mod. Because your JSGME is in the data folder, it's copying another data folder from the mod; that's why you're seeing another folder called data in there!

 Here, it'll be easier to show than to tell:

I'm on the non-steam version, but that won't matter, the only difference there is that your main directory is named "Battle of Stalingrad" while mine is "Great Battles". 

 What you need to do is disable the mod in JSGME, then cut and paste your JSGME install including the MODS folder into your main directory, so it should look roughly like mine above. Then re-enable the mod, and it should show up just fine.

 

 Also; JSGME will flag up a warning if you try and enable more than one of these mods, but you should be able to safely ignore it in this case, as the files altered are all in their own folders or differently named, and shouldn't conflict. If, for some reason, you want both the Kuban and Stalingrad mod enabled, you can go right ahead!

 

Also you can ignore the "PWCGCampaign" folder on the screenshot there, that's something entirely different and unrelated to this particular install or problem.

Great mod to get some routine flying the jet until BoBP is released. Highly appreciated!

Quite all right, hopefully it'll get us all an opportunity to learn the aircraft a little better in SP before we're facing fighters that'll really be able to punish silly mistakes!

JSGME is a great piece of kit, helps tremendously when games and sims update too!

 

 Thus far at least I would highly recommend Bodenplatte, an excellent job has been done making the Dora feel the same yet different to the other 190s, and the 262 is honestly spectacularly well done. Don't get me wrong, it's never going to turn BoX into a study sim, but it's absolutely taking everything BoX is and has been so far, and turning it up to eleven.

I think IL2 hits that perfect balance of not trying to pull a War Thunder Sim mode on us where its arcade but in a cockpit but at the same time you don't need to read the pilot's manual to fly a plane. (And believe me I recently am getting into DCS and bought the F14...I know how it feels)
