Most of the options are for if you own one or more of these third-party dynamic campaign products:
- OstFront
- Battle Over Europe
- The Last Days

Select the patch option that best matches the add-on packs you have already installed.

If you use Lowengrin's Dynamic Campaign Generator (DCG) you might want the DCG patch. It works independantly of the OstFront/BOE/TLD options so you can use this patch even if you do not have any of the other three packs. Install Lowengrin's DCG first.

If you do not own any of these products, just choose the 'no add-ons' option. It only contains user-made campaigns that were made for the stock 1946 install.

There are campaigns that were made with the v4.09b1m patch that will not work with the v4.09m patch.
I wouldn’t have bothered with updating the links otherwise.

Part I: Official Patch(es)
v4.09 Beta Patch
Mission4Today:
Patch - (261,465kb): http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=3199
Skin Pack - (242,660kb): http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=3200

Filefront:
Patch – (490.43 MB): http://www.filefront.com/13353434/Sturmovik-1946-Official-Beta-v409b1m-Patch/
(The filefront mirror includes the skin pack)

v4.09m Patch:
Mission4Today:
Patch – (566.63 MB): http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=3764
Skin Pack – (260.04 MB): http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=3761


Part III: Getting Up To Speed.
This link no longer works: Community authored FAQ at Airwarfare.com. It answers many common questions, like how to release the planes from carrier decks or raise the landing gear on the Wildcat.
This may be the FAQ at M4T ??? http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Knowledge_Base&cat=8


Part IVb: Making the Italian Campaigns Included in the Enjoyr Patch Actually Work.
Netwings is down and the link for the Italian Campaign Pack no longer works.

Mission4Today:
Italian Campaign Pack: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=41
Pilot Textures:

UBI missions page - (I found the Italian Campaign pack here): http://il2-sturmovik.de.ubi.com/en/missions.php
Italian Campaign Pack - (This is a direct download link): http://ftp.ubi.com/uk/pacificfighters/missions/Italian_Pack.zip
Pilot Textures:
The Pilot Textures link to lowengrins still works and I can’t find them at M4T or UBI.


Part V: A Better Quick Mission Builder. Many newcomers soon ask, "How can I add more maps to the game's Quick Mission Builder?" Unfortunately, you can't. The good news, though, is that UberDemon has developed the UberQuick Mission Generator, a utility that works a lot like the QMB but it gives you access to almost all of the game's maps.

Uberdemon’s site is down again and has been for a few weeks. frown

His site is up again. smile


Part VII: Improved Aircraft Markings.
None of the links in this section except the two in the Update work anymore.

Update: There is now an unofficial 'all-in-one' installer that will save you a few steps. It is located at Mission4Today. More details on this patch can be found here.

No hurry, they're here whenever you get the time. smile

The FAQ at M4T is a guess, I wasn't around when the original Airwafare FAQ was made.
You might want to make sure that I have found the correct item.

Uberdemon's site is up again.
When I checked whois on the 18th before I posted his domain had expired.
They updated the domain on the 19th and now it expires in April 2011. smile

Hopefully it will not go down again any time soon.

Yes, and so much of my initial post is out of date now. I revised the information several times in the first couple of years but the cumulative impact of the community's activities became more than I could keep up with. I admit that I really don't have much interest in IL-2 1946 these days even with the recent Team Diadalos patches and endless community mods (or possibly because of all the mods). I currently don't have 1946 installed on my computer. That's sad, because from 2002 to 2007 the IL-2 series was an important cornerstone in my life.

I hope all is good with you Bearcat99. smile

Been out of this game for a long time. Have bought the 1946 DVD. What additional add-ons besides the downloadable materials would ya'll recommend? I've seen Battle Oever Europe and Last Days mentioned. Are they worth it with all the additional content available via download?

Thanks,

AC
