Beware!  It says P38 has manual radiator & oil which is not true.  Maybe they meant to to say  it *also* has a manual option but it is ambiguous.

Thanks for pointing this out.

There sure will be a few errors in the set.

Just mention them and they'll get fixed on the next update.

I decided I did not need to keep the default photos so there was no need to install it as a Mod.  I just copied the relevant  'data\graphics\Planes' directory into 

 
C:\....\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics   directory on my PC and it put everything in the right place.
 
Thanks for this Storebror.  Very nice.   I usually have bits of paper stuck on my wall to jog my memory 🙂

Great work and thank you!

I had almost finished my full set...😭

I will probably post my version once finished just for variety (mine are on distressed notepaper).

Sorry, didn't want to "steal the kill" ;)

I think variety is exactly what counts. We've had a lengthy discussion at SAS about the Fraktur fonts for instance - some like it, others don't.

I'd say lets offer whatever we can come around with and let the users choose. The more the merrier!

 

Thanks again for your great idea :good:

Absolutely! I wasn't whining at all. Variety is the spice...

Hello,

Great mod, really needed when you are in plane that you don't know well. It will help to check params without loosing too much SA, unlike the tables in my mod.

But could it be possible to add the altitude for compressor stage and the availability of boost feature ?

Excellent, excellent mod!  Thank you very much.  It's great when you get into a plane you don't fly often.  Bloody brilliant!  👌  👍

Noted at some point that A-20 has wrong values for engine limits. Or is there a newer release where this has been fixed?

Hello guys, i've read that the game isn't "mod friendly", and some mods can be detect like a "cheat" by the game.  Can i be "ban" if i use this mod?

All the mods posted here are most likely checked by the Dev team and if found to allow gameplay cheating would be removed.  The mods available her are for the most part "eye candy" mods like clouds, adding the navigator position to the A-20, putting an pilot figure in your seat you can see when you look down, enhancements that allow the VR user a better in game experience etc. etc.  None make your plane fly like a jet, be bulletproof or give you advanced technology weaponry.

 

The game is very "mod friendly".  All you have to do is install a JSGME or similar program into the main game folder, create a "MODS" folder to put any mods in, enable them through the activation program (JSGME for instance) and check the "Mods enabled" box in Settings > Game > Customization.

However with "Mods enabled" you will only be able to join servers that also have "mods enabled" on.

Installation:
This mod is ready to be dropped into your JSGME "MODS" folder.
Alternatively you can extract the files to the IL-2 Great Battles Game folder directly. In that case make sure to use available options properly.
NOTE: This Mod works even when "Enable Mods" is unticked, i.e. you are in "MODS OFF" mode.

Just came by to show my appreciation -- thank you SAS Crew,  @II./JG1_Vonrd and @OrLoK ! This is by far the best use of the cockpit photo feature yet. Must-have mod for people who change planes often :).

 

It's ESPECIALLY helpful in VR where you don't tend to be able to look down at your own notes.

Just to clarify... this is not really a "MOD" per se. It can be used in MODS OFF mode. And here's my version:

 

 

Make sure you enable "Photo" in the "Pilot Stuff" tab in the "Plane Settings" (Where you select fuel load, ammo, skins, etc.).

Loving the notes. If you revisit I would love to see climb-out speeds added, and as mentioned the A20 RPM's are wrong.

I corrected the numbers (by doing some dilettante copy&paste of existing letters). File's attached.
