Hey everyone,

I'm new to this mod community and could use some help.

I have started with a fresh copy of 4.13 from steam (Oct 2018)

I have tried using the unpatcher that's listed on this forum to bring it back to 4.12 and then installed all of the mods as per instructions but the game crashes after the initial splash screen and it's back to desktop

Has anyone had any luck getting the newest steam version to work with this modpack?

Thanks!

Dear planesarefun :D

There are no confirmed evidences that The Unpatcher does not work with the Steam version of '46. You therefore did not follow the instructions to the letter and most probably you skipped 'for reasons known to you' the 1st step and applied The Unpatcher while the game was in the Program Files folder.

That Steam beta option will apparently work, but be warned your VP-Modpack will break again as soon as Steam decides it is time to update your game.

Have fun with VP-Modpack's planes!

Thanks Whistler and VP

That indeed worked and the mod is up and running and looks awesome!  Thanks for all of the hard work and support.

I still have to go in and fix the Quick Mission Builder problem that seems common as I have not applied any of the patches yet, just wanted to see if the mod would run after a fresh start

Thanks again for the speedy replies everyone!

I'm glad that it worked. Add the patch because it has important updates. For example the QMB will not work without it.

I assume that the Ultimate Edition is 4.07. To make sure check what your game says at the first loading screen. You probably will need the 4.12 megapatch linked in the first post.

For decent graphics IL-2 1946 requires a graphics card otherwise you wont be able to run OpenGL.

The install process is extracting two 7z files into your game folder, deleting a folder and editing the conf.ini. There's also a very detailed install guide:

The patches worked without fail and the QMB problem is fixed, thanks!  Another issue that arises now is when changing aircraft in the QMB when the game loads the same type of aircraft always appears no matter what was selected. When I change something else like the country or the map then it’s fixed.

Also, does the mod change the stock boring water texture or is that a separate mod?  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Hi Vp

Thanks, judt started it up and have the version V.4.10.1m installed, does this fit with de modpack

Unfortunately it does not allow me to upload a picture here

Will the modpack fix the unnice contours of the planes? I mesn the saw style steped lines and contours. The movies i watch on youtube have extremky nice graphics, much better than mine.
I have installed a geforce gtx 1050 3gb on my computer and set the setings to open gl

Many thanks for your support

Best regards

Yes, 4.10 is a good starting point. You need to install the SAS 4.12 megapatch before installing the modpack:
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,38443.0.html

To fix the jagged edges you need to enable antialiasing in the Nvidia control panel:
https://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+enable+anti+aliasing+nvidia&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b
I use 4x antialiasing and 16x anisotropic filtering, antialiasing trasparency disabled.
The install guide has the conf.ini graphics settings I'm using:

I love Cliffs Blitz (TFS member myself) but i keep returning and returning to admire the outstanding job the guys are doing here. The VPmodpack is the best MOD collection you can find for 1946 (BAT is awesome as well, but VP is the finest).

A huge thank you, Istvan!  ;) 8)
