IL-2 GBS Resources

Recommended Posts

Here are a few other useful links I've found this week.

Document listing which features each plane has so you can make sure to bind them: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/29700-basic-guide-cem-key-mapping-new-starters/

Requiem's Tutorial Series (most folks have probably already found these):
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnyigzFtHeNquPvKFr3mazkk_VK0JpxUw

Sheriff's guides:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLc4tmHaPyjwxbAhCGsh7ohpHApU-LxH4m
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLc4tmHaPyjww6PesMpxqRrcH10G_U4FQt

These 1940's training films are a bit dry and a little overkill for playing BoX but describe a few things that may be confusing to new flyers trying to get to grips with expert settings:

How propellers work (Pitch etc): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CLicyIVM18
How a carburetor works (Rich/lean mix, manifold pressure etc): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8a3ur6Ar_k
Basic acrobatics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ciHwwRCeBw

I think I might grab those and pack them for here - I'll PM Detcord first though.

If you've got Battle of Bodenplatte early access and fancy flying your Spitfire mk. XI in something a bit more involved than the QMB can provide - and you've got the Kuban map - then Mr. Jade_Monkey over on the BoS forum has reworked his excellent "Defence of Taupse docks" mission to add the mk. IX:thumbsu:

Download the zip file and open it's contents into your Data/Missions file.

Detcord - not the most prolific but certainly the most talented skinner in BoX at the moment - imho:salute:

Yep, using those. Detcord produces some great skins :) Feck....flying through hangars in an A20...well done!!

Just tried http://il2-expert.ru/en/Coop post 3.005 update, and at the moment it's not producing any compatible missions for 3.005.

(Currently I have like 2 Coop missions that will run in 3.005 ... )

Yep, the update to version 3.005 has done something to the .msnbin file.  None of the coops in the vault nor anything I've got or anyone else has got will now work:wacko:.   However, that nice man TX_Tips is on the case and has already updated his coop missions to the latest version.

TipsCoOPs Pack Five 35.zip

TipsCoOPs Pack Four 35.zip

TipsCoOPs Pack One 35.zip

TipsCoOPs Pack Three 35.zip

TipsCoOPs Pack Two 35.zip

:goodjob:

So should I delete everything in the coops folder and put these in for tonight?

I'd delete everything except the single, stock coop that comes with the game and install the above, yes.:salute:

Why not just run dogfight type maps like what WOL runs? Have objectives for both sides to accomplish, make most if not all AC available so there is a lesser chance of folks getting "locked" out. I'll shut up now as I probably don't know what I'm talking about (as usual). And no, I have no idea how to accomplish the preceeding.

Don't worry, neither do I.  On the other hand, neither do any of us!

Maybe something like the great map set on the DD CLoD server? Not saying we set up a server, just using that as an example. Just throwing stuff out and seeing what might stick I am <in my best Yoda voice>.
