I may have spotted a small bug.

When selecting Object 508 and 509 "Furniture BF109" (the static 109 without a prop) you can see it in the FMB and also place it on the ground, but ... there is nothing there!  o_O

Can anyone replicate this problem, or is it just me? Mind you, this is without any additional mods or mod packs of any kind.

You can try these fixes for your game....

This is my new favourite modpack (untill now, I was on HSFX 7.03).

I have added some little improvements (Ju-52 and C-47 cowls and 3D, Me-262 engines, new airfield plates, Fw-190 from Barnesy12, new Mustangs from same author, better pilots, new gear and spinner for He-111, new spinners for Hurricane family...)

Your pack is fantastic.

Thank you!

That looks great  8)  Thanks for the video.

For my latest addition to the VP-Modpack. I installed the old (but with much nicer details) Claymore´s Fw-190-family aircraft
from 4.10 into this 4.12 version. It works great. But I also recommend to add into it  Stefan SG more-Fixes and PA_Jeronimos
even better props to them. Its a complete collection of fine looking aircraft.
Its very tricky to install this huge-mega-airplane pack, but the time and patience wasted is all worth it in the end.

Agreed with max, Claymores 190s are one of my top 10 favorites of all time!

Mine too! It´s in my Top-10 List of all time favorite mods and upgrades!

I enjoyed flying them in the 4.10 game version, but now they fly superb in this VP-modpack 4.12.
I don't know what fine tweaks VP-Media did to the maps or the games atmosphere, but these aircraft are looking better
now than in my old game!  :)
All colors and details pop out so much better now for my skin painting fun.

As I said before I only included the mods which are fully functional in 4.12.
I'm wondering how that pack can work in your game because I had that Fw-190 pack but it had java and other errors so I could not include it. I dont think its fully 4.12 compatible, just read the last few pages and you'll see that others reported the same errors but no real fix was ever posted  ;)

My responsibility as a modpack-builder is to provide a package which doesnt waste your time or create a bad gaming experience, hence I had to be really picky when I choose the mods to include.

If something did not make it into the pack, its usually because it had somekind of a problem: low quality textures, caused an fps drop or had  any java or 3d error. So far I made one big mistake with the Ju-188, but other than that I dont see any major error reports which shows that my concept was right.

The Pack is awesome Istvan - been flying the wings off it!  Hope to complete a campaign for the small channel map, time allowing, looking forward to your next update for it!  :)

I can still remember when ppl used the Crimea map for Battle of Britain scenarios :D
We've come pretty far from that.
I've recently learned to use the actors management tool which opened up a whole range of projects including this. Of course my efforts are nothing compared to CanonUK who made the original map and designed most of the buildings. I only need a bit more testing and I can release the map update next week. Thanks for the work you did on the map KiwiBiggles!

Vpmedia, I agree with your philosophy about only using proven quality in your modpack. The proof of this is the smooth trouble-free operation combined with almost maximal content. Additionally, I find it great to have a simple, complete, easy-to-install pack which eliminates having to decide myself what to add and subtract. You've done all that for us and expertly. Thanks again.

I agree with you 100% and you did very well in just keeping the aircraft mods which are flying their best for everyone to use.
The other new addictions also work very well and I have been checking them out.

As for me, using these other aircraft mods and include them into your pack is only my personal choice for my personal game,
and for me to see if I can make changes/fixes to them in the future. - So everyone should be aware of their past problems and
to read all the posts when downloading any new airplane, so they know what to expect from them..

I am not a great modder, but I can try my best to make little fixes to them and maybe discover something useful
that everyone can also use for their game later on.

For me, the VP-Modpack , as a base mod-pack,  is just super in the way its constructed and thought out,
and its also very dependable and easy to look into each individual folder file for modding certain things.
I just hope that the Chinese will not start making copies of this and start selling them !!  :D

Hi All,

Just came across the VP Modpack over at SimHQ. Been flying IL-2 for years - mostly for the offline campaigns. I'm currently running HSFX with a hodgepodge of mods and campaigns - mostly ones from Boelcke's WestFront. But I keep getting conflicts and various parts of the game that don't want to play well together - all user created I assure you.

I'm curious about the VP Modpack and looked at the homepage for it - can you tell me what campaigns come with it? My primary interest is flying ETO campaigns so, out of the box, can I get into a BoB or USAAF campaign or will I need to add some things to it? Thanks in advance for your reply. Looks awesome!

Cheers!
