I've been flying a German career in the ME 410 in Normandy. Lots and lots of night time bombing missions to the Isle of Wight!


Has anyone else played on the new Normandy map yet?

I've been trying to do some V1 Intercept and V1 site bombing quick missions. A beautiful map indeed!

The terrain and structure detail on the Normandy map is very impressive indeed. The map alone is worth the 80 bucks I paid for Normandy Premium!

I've only played online where it was hosted on a server, I haven't picked it up yet. I find I get a fair bit of stutter even though I'm getting fps of around 50 and no-one but me on the server

I like it quite a bit due to the different cockpit layout but being a twin-engined dive bomber it's really not much different from flying a PE-2 or PE-3. So the plane is a nice addition to my list of flyables but for me it's really mostly about the new Normandy map.

The 410 on the Normandy map with all of the different loadout options is very cool. Lots to play with! The plane's cockpit layout and rear gun setup are quite unique.

Probably not for a couple of months but ultimately it makes little difference since as soon as you buy the extra content on the IL-2 website, it automatically unlocks the next time you launch IL-2 in Steam.

I got it on early release.
Map looks great, but as usual you are flying over a lifeless landscape.
No random farms with any cattle in fields still, but the most disappointing thing is that the beaches on D-day have no troops, [static would have been more convincing than empty] they all get the week off.
The few landing crafts only carry 3 crew, no attempt to even put rows of heads/helmets on board craft.
And the anti aircraft fire is Savage above 100 feet, so the AI will send you up to 5000 if you touch the autopilot.
Could do better !.

.looking to buy it this weekend. Is there any advantage to buying it from Steam? Price for basic game is the same, but premium only offered on IL-2 website. Also, if someday there are mods or skins (if I ever learn how to use them) is there a special place to put the game or just let the computer decide?

Bought the game, installing it now. Did buy it premium from developer website. Also found the manual, is there a simplified version of the key bindings?

youll need to do the key binding on your own if you want it simplified.

And any time the game updates, you will have to redo MOST of your key bindings. not in every plane, but in the ones you use the most for some reason.

That has never happened to me in the 5-6 years I've been flying IL2

hate to break it to you, any time "great battles" updated itself, between 1-1-2021 and when i got rid of it this year,, it would reset key bindings.

Not all of them, but when a game updates and suddenly the zoom button now drops bombs... you KNOW the game is #%&*$# up on its own.

ANd it wouldnt even be consistent between planes. the me 262 could launch rockets when i hit the zoom, the 129 could drop flaps when i hit the zoom. Little #%&*$# like that.

As I stated, never happened to me. Not once.

So if you got rid of it, why bother following this forum?

its always been amazing that when something happened for me in the game,, ive always been called a liar by jason and the staff. Or just "pathetic troll running on a bad system experiencing things only his system can see".


I also have a feeling that you are one of the deniers who refuses to admit that the pilot death system was never changed to kill the pilot at any sort of impact to the plane.

Let's not get into sniping at one another. Address the content of the post, not the characteristics of the author.

It's fine to point out problems with the sim, producers, or marketing. But one shouldn't be surprised that other people question it if they don't encounter it as well. Providing evidence ( video, screen shots, etc.) can bolster the credibility of claims.

Problems with a product aren't likely to get fixed unless they are brought to light. However, claims of problems are not likely to get taken seriously in the absence of proof.

Read my posts again.

Never. Happened. To Me.

Clear now? Never called you a liar, or a troll or anything else. Whatever problem you've had with IL2 just MIGHT be something to do with your system or something else particular to you, because (again) what you're describing has NEVER HAPPENED TO ME.

And if it had happened to me I would have been prepared for it because I keep such config files backed up on ALL sims, because I have lost settings/careers/progress in other sims for various reasons so I learned from that.
