VP Modpack
« on: March 30, 2016, 07:24:42 AM »



The main goal of this pack is to update every stock texture/3d possible and add the best quality ww2 mods without ruining the games performance or the gameplay.
It's the final result of more than 7 years of work by the SAS community and lot of the material was extracted from DBW (all maps, objects and cockpit retextures included).

The secondary goal is to create a package which is really easy to install, its a single 7z archive split into 700Mb parts, extarcting the first part into your game folder will automatically do the other 15 parts too.
Single click install, no manual, no complicated instructions, just start you modact game with the IL-2 Selector.exe as usual.

The only requirement is the SAS IL-2 4.12.2m Mega Patch:

An excellent idea! It will give us 4.12, but with backward DBW compatibility - correct?  :)

With VPMedia's name on it, it will be gold. Thanks for sharing your efforts with us!

A question, which archive has the com and i18n folders in it? I want to get that one first and have a look at the presents while the other parts download.

EDIT: Disregard, just re-read the OP and see that it's a split archive.
