I honestly get stoked for this stuff but never have the damn time!
Last thing I installed was a massive HSFX pack, and the modding system became a bit complicated, but is it a different pack now??
Are the internal models improved? It looks decent graphically but I can't remember how dated it feels when flying it.
Dickie, it couldn't be easier, if you have steam il2 1946 go to the Beta section and choose version 4.12.2 from the selection.
If you don't have steam then you'll need the SAS mega patch which will get you to 4.12.2
Copy that folder into a new location away from program files (I use documents) then download B.A.T. v4.0 "RED CORE" - The World At War pack and extract to your new il2 location ... and it's done!
Yes BAT has updated FM and damage modelling and AI improvements...
However, I think if you want the very best FM then YPack is your beast and best for online play nowadays and uses 4.13.3 .... for that, you just download and install it as it has everything including the base IL2 game ... It's very nice too! There is some argument that suggests that 4.13.3 AI is an improvement over 4.12.2 but I can't tell the difference.
I have 4 versions of Il2 1946 on my machine at the moment VP Mod
and Steam version which is updated (manually) to 4.14.1
(I used to have HSFX and DBW and have working copies on a hard drive somewhere but they may be a wee bit outdated now in terms of AI and FMs )
If I can help in any way at all let me know!
