Moderator note April 2019:
Download 2 has been cleaned of outdated game files. This now only contains mission files and skins.
Monty's text fixes from Reply #18 are also included.


AUGUST 12th, 2017 - The second set features the marvelous Hungarian aircraft Sound/Flight Model fix, by Vampire_Pilot, and a fully patched 'BATTLE OF KARFREIT', now using C&C vectors to engage enemy aircraft without striking the mountains.  Everything else has been tarted up to some degree, figures, vehicle traffic, weather, its all been looked at again.

Many of the AI improvements are down to the fact that I now have a better understanding of Spawn Point and Taxi behaviour.  I can now make the AI climb out properly and avoid running into mountains because of low energy.  There is no problem with the sim, its down to how well you write the missions.

I really began to master the taxi and scramble takeoff writing the new Battle of Britain campaigns.  Now I have re-visited WWI and tidied up the AI routines.

You can get these campaigns and mission sets here:  They will also be included in the next B.A.T. Expansion - Part 14 - Angels High, along with Vampire_Pilot's Italian Front Winter Map and many other new WWI addons, enhancements and fixes.

With more time and more application we can expect a third Mission set that will over-write these sets and take them even further.

It won't be done all at once because each mission and the updates take many hours to build.  This is OK though, because the update follow ups are small downloads that add a little more each time.

Thanks to SpongeBob for the Dedicated Great War awards and ranks.  Please read the excellent thread and explanation.

***********************

BAT04-Dawn of Flight.PDF is now fixed and re-uploaded.

Many thanks to the marvelous skinners who add so much, in terms of atmosphere, variety and authenticity to our incredible sim.  Skin credits are on the skins or in the name, none have been altered.

Many of the skins are available in the big VPMedia Skinpack.  Others have been collected over many years of playing with Il2.  I have included everything used to make the campaigns so that no one will be missing a skin.  Credits are sometimes difficult to source.  Some skins bear a signature or tag, others do not. 
Thanks to all great skinners for your work.  If anyone has been missed from the credits please let me know.

SKINNERS:
archie
MAX-theHitman
Mission_BUG
Phas3e
Stalker

You really need to get a huge THANK YOU! for all of the PDF guides included with these upgrades.

They are so comprehensive and detailed and just plain interesting.
The Dawn of Flight campaign package is installed and all is not quiet on the Western Front and other places.

THANK YOU.

Had to be Mike, the Dawn of Flight Complete Package depends on Expansion Twelve being installed, because of the flares and extra effects.  Therefore I had to sit on these for a while until both were ready.  Good to be making progress though, onwards and upwards, and forward in time...

Brilliant Simon, cannot thank you enough.

One quick question please, as you know i started 1914 for the French in the Vosges mountains in the older version.

Can i just now carry on with the pilot career, after over writing the old one with this later version ?

I don't even know if that makes sense, hahahaha  ;D

Much appreciated,
Mike.

Family flew in for a week, no IL2, and they just flew out, and look what is waiting!!!  Couldn't time it better!  Thanks, this is really a wonderful gift to the IL2 community and I'm off to the skies again.   I can't say thank you enough, or thanks enough for all the mods that make it all possible. 

Oops, my Nieuport is warmed up, time to go!

Holy Crap.... Monty you have gone way way above and beyond. Thank you for this.  How do have time to do anything else? Hell, it's taken over a month working in the FMB to just get through 25 missions so far. You have provided us with over 500 missions......  o_O

What can I say that hasn't already been said other than wow.

 I gotta admit I haven't flown in the WWI skies for quite some time but I'm really tempted to dig out the spats, oil the leathers and polish the goggles to give these campaigns a go.

Thanks and cheers,

Edlor
