Il2 1946 brand new C.U.P Super modpack Single Player Only!!

Post by Redeye » Thu Mar 05, 2015 2:57 pm

Having played using "The Full Monty" up to now- I can heartily recommend this.

The amount of content in this is simply staggering.

Also- Il2 1946 fully modded looks good visually. And in terms of content, things to do, make and have fun with- there simply is nothing that even comes close. In single player experiences- it towers above all others.

Have a look.

I have started playing it after installing HSFX and was pleasantly surprised with how it looked, I didn't play it back in the day, it seems I may have missed out somewhat.

Is this modpack worth having? or is HSFX 7 ok?, I know nothing about these packs at all

As an aside I have started a single player campaign but wouldn't mind trying multiplayer sometime, co-op campaigns are possible aren't they?

Cheers for the link Redeye. Looks impressive!

I have not modded more than HSFX, never got round to DBW or anything. Nitrous I can see where you are coming from, 46 does lack in certain areas, but until DCS or something else can support massive B-17 formations and exert then I will still dip in to 46 for half an hour just for something different.

This modpack is the most super inclusive of all. There is nothing that even comes close to it. It increases the contents tenfold in terms of maps, graphics and effects, skins and flyable aircraft, aircraft 3d models and sounds.

The new model makes it relatively easy to install- and once you do so- there will be a selector which allows you to choose which version you will be flying- including HSFX for those that prefer that.

Yes, multiplayer and COOP is very possible if you are running the same, exact build. (You are still able to tweak the visual aspect through mods- like map repaints and cloud effects etc)

My advice- install it clean from steam (It then patches to 4.12 automatically), install the latest modact (go to sas1946.com) and follow the instructions here TO THE LETTER.

Once you have. done so, you WILL have the largest and most comprehensive ww2 sandbox there is. Perfect for relaxed single player gaming and exploring
