"IL-2 SCW" - Spanish Civil War Mod Pack
« on: January 26, 2013, 07:09:18 AM »

Thanks to the colossal work not least by DreamK but also a host of other talented modders like Gio963tto, Kant, Epervier, CWatson and many others we now have most of the aircraft we need to refight not just the Spanish Civil War, but also other conflicts during the inter-war years. All in the digital skies of IL-2. For those curious to have a go but a bit scared of the task of collecting, updating and installing all those fine mods I have made this simple Mod Pack. It is inspired by Monty, Windweapon and Cracken, and aims to give you a quick and hassle-free installation, and dito activation via JSGME.



The pack is called "IL-2 SCW", and it consists of one Base Pack and ELEVEN Update Packs. (You don't need all eleven update packs to start flying, though.)

DOWNLOADS

The Base Pack and all eleven Update Packs can be found here:

REQUIREMENTS
"IL-2 SCW" is supposed to go on top of a clean DBW 1.71 installation. That is IMPORTANT. If it does it is almost 100% guaranteed to work. And it can’t mess up your game, as it is activated via JSGME.

INSTALLATION
Just follow the install instructions in the download. In principle the installation of both the base pack and the updates has four easy steps:
1. Uncompress the downloaded files, one by one. (Note: the format is 7zip. If you don’t have that program, it can be downloaded for free here: http://www.7-zip.org/download.html)
2. If you have "IL-2 SCW" active, just deactivate it through JSGME.
3. Drop the uncompressed content folder/s (all the time “jsgmemods”, often “Paintschemes” and “Missions" as well) into the root folder of your DBW install (for instance "C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946"). Overwrite if prompted to. (Any sound files go into the folder Samples/Music/Menu.) Note: The order you do this is imperative: First the Base Pack, then the updates, in strict sequence. Not rocket science, if you think of it.
3. In your IL-2 root folder click on the icon named “JSGME.exe”. You will find one entry named “IL-2 SCW Mod Pack for DBW”. Select it, then click on the top arrow button (“Enable selected mod”). The Mod Pack will then be enabled. (It can take a while.) After this process is finished, close JSGME, and start IL-2 the regular way. (To the disable the Mod Pack, simply reverse the process in JSGME.)

Thanks to all talented modders who have made it possible to once again fight with or against the Republic in the skies of Spain! Especially two people: DreamK and Gio963otto:) And remember: there is always Ultraspain! http://ultrapack.tuttovola.org/index.php?topic=5698.0 And for you that run C.U.P.: don't miss module 5, "The Golden Age": http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/board,252.0.html (Both these variants run on IL-2 4.12.)

Splendid idea, Poltava & co! Installed and played two missions (QMB), all seems to be fine, the Pipistrello (SM81) flies awkwardly (as if "floating" on air), apart form that all fine. I added the SAS poli-pack as I wanted the i-16 10CW. Many thanks again to all involved for this great production,  8)

Many thanks poltava, a great piece of work.

I could never get Ultraspain to work so this is a godsend for me, really appreciate the work you have put in.

Yes, "Ultraspain" is bigger and better, but I also had problems with it. So I choose this smaller and simpler solution  ;)

This pack looks like it would be very useful and after using the Full Monty I'm warming up to the idea of using the JSGME to modify DBW.  I have already downloaded your package and will try it out as soon as I get back from a trip (from Feb 28 through March 18) where I will not have access to my gaming computer.

Is there any plan to add DreamK's D-510 (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,24761.0.html) and Bulldog (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,28107.0.html) any time soon?  I believe these two planes were used in the Spanish Civil War.

Looking forward to trying it out  ... tooslow  ;D

   I am not a member of M4T, and the application takes a while.... (On what people tell me) 

So, if possible, could someone please post an alternate Download link? 

Thanks.

In the time you waited for a reply to your post you could have applied, joined, downloaded and be flying over Spain.
When you apply for membership at M4T you receive an activation link via email, takes minutes depending on your email provider.
