This has nothing to do with VP Pack (sorry Istvan...) but would you guys know if somebody attempted to have longer mobile train compositions?
Standard pre-WWII soviet number of car is for example 32 with often much bigger ones (up to more than 90 cars).
The animated ones we have in the game look very small.

In the chief.ini file you'll find two sections - the top section is for the name of the train and the bottom section is the makeup of said train. Here's an example:

Top portion:
Code: [Select]
Germany_CargoTrainMixed             objects.trains.Train 2 icons/train.mat
Bottom portion:
Code: [Select]
[Trains.Germany_CargoTrainMixed]

Using the proper syntax that you get from the examples you can make trains as long as you wish. In one of my versions (that I've misplaced or lost altogether) I made an eighty-car train using three locomotives - one in the lead, one in the middle and one in the rear. This was used on the War Over Italy map in the mountains.

Hope this helps.

I had the Fw-190 pack in but it produced somekind of a java error which I was unable to fix, hence i had to remove it.

I think I am spending too much time in static.ini and not enough in chiefs.ini !

I still think that this is "the" best Mod Packs out there. Quick to load, great FPS, great looking maps etc...  8)

Is 1956 Jet Era going be in a future patch or is that a no go?

The idea behind the patches is to improve the mods which are already included in the package. I do not plan to add more mods which would require changes in the air/stationary/chiefs/technics.ini files, in order to not cause problems for those people who already added a bunch of extra mods on top of the base pack.
For jets the quickest way to go is CUP : JTW. If you add jets to this pack remove the effects mod, its incompatible with the SAS Engine mod.

If it's any help, I have installed Sabres and MiGs for the Korean maps and all works fine. I didn't install this SAS Engine mod, which I quite frankly know little about.

I thought that the Sabre and Mig mods would require the SAS Engine mod.

I understand.  ::( But I really gotta get those early p-38's into the game. I have always relied on modpacks in the past (dbw, hsfx) for my needs and am struggling a bit to add them independently  :-[ Will forge on trying to get them added to this pack.

VP, I used 'PeterDs_HSFXUP_MigsandSabres_Plus_FreddyPit_v2' and they work for me! I have no Engine Mod installed. Mind you, I tried installing F-80's, F-84's and Cougars without success, but Sabres vs MiGs keep me happy in Korea.

Hi! This is my first post in the forum, this pack is really nice, great sounds and graphic effects. I just dont get the flight model of most planes, it seems like the airspeed doesn't influence the control of the aircraft, anyone else notices this? It's really hard to fly properly at relatively high speeds without the control stiffening, it just wobbles around and it's very easy to accidently pull too many g's. Just want to know if im the only one with this issue.

Thanks!

Dude, try turning the "stalls and spins" off in the Difficulty Menu!  8)

In all seriousness, I find the stall/gyroscopic effects on a lot of the planes to be a bit overkill as well. From 4.07 stock and on. I've flown a few planes in real life, obviously not P-51s or FW-190s, but still, never see stalls like on IL-2!  :-| It would be presumptuous to compare these flying characteristics to those of other sim's though, as IL-2 is still by far the most complete/realistic aviation simulator.
