And THIS is why you don't get rid of great old games because you think that you'll never play them again.
Looks terrific. If I still had IL2/1946 I'd be all over this one

Nice, I still play IL-2 1946 regularly. I have CLoD but never got into it as much as 1946.

Maybe I am getting old, but I just don't have the time to mess around with these modpacks.
Steam workshop was invented for me...:)
On the other hand, I still play Il2, with UP I assume, just not brave enough to touch it, it works fine and have enough content...:)

rwatson, you're welcome.

This used to be a major site for information on IL2 1946 but times change and interests, here at least, seem to have changed.

The SAS site is where most of the IL2 1946 mod action is centered.

There are also new WWI and Spanish Civil War campaigns built with all the bells and whistles and a BOB campaign in the works.
There are 1,112 paint scheme folders 41 of which are Spitfire variants in my latest BAT install.

There are many planes from the era between the 2 world wars and the SCW is well covered with accurate, well researched missions, maps and aircraft.
The Jet Era, mid 1940s til now, has seen major progress with upgrades across the board.

One might be tempted to think that quality has been sacrificed for quantity when so much has been added and the only way to find out is to give it a try.

BAT 10

Huge Night Fighter upgrade:
SAS~Monty27 says: Command and Control 412 offers support for GCI, Spotters etc now the actual radar intercept capability on board the aircraft itself is here! Earlier mods trialed this facility but the latest version has been extensively refined and is beautifully presented here for 15 dedicated NJ aircraft. Its time to go to Night-Fighter School - Read the attached manual (in BATDOCS).

There is also a lot more new content there.

This should have been posted between BAT 9 and BAT 10.
It is meant to provide complete new clean folders for each time period covered DOF, TGA, WAW, JTW.

Checkpoint

Then there is this:
BAT 11

They say there is more on the way, better get caught up soon.

There is also, for those who call for a manual, one that is now at 194 pages, here:
It links to MediaFire.

Stupid question that i have not seen the answer to.

Other than keeping a folder that has all of the CUP modules you have loaded up to date, is there a way to see what BAT your CUP IL2 is on?

Thanks

Yes, the BAT readme file. It overwrites with every new expansion.
