Update Pack 3 for "IL-2 SCW" available now!
« on: August 20, 2013, 12:24:19 AM »

Now Update Pack 3 for "IL-2 SCW" has been posted, and with this pretty much all modded Spanish Civil War aircraft are now available in one simple pack.

1. INTRODUCTION: “IL-2 SCW” is a simple compilation of material from different talented modders, and designed for DBW. The pack contains everything you need to start simulating air combat during the Spanish Civil War 1936-39. The aim of “IL-2 SCW” is to provide a comprehensive collection of pre-WW2 mods that can be easily installed, without multiple downloads, editing of different ini-files etc. And as it is activated through JGSME.exe it can’t “break” your installation, but can be switched “on” and ”off” as the player pleases.



This is UPDATE 3 of the updated base pack, with additional aircraft and other material. This means that you MUST have the base pack PLUS Update 1 AND Update 2 installed first, otherwise this update won’t of course work.

YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT HERE: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=1744

You can find the Base Pack and Update Pack 1 here: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=1581 And Update pack 2 here: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=1716


2. CONTENTS AND CREDITS: This update pack contains the following new material:

A.) Seven new aircraft (with variants):
* Junkers Ju 87A by DreamK
* Savoia Marchetti S.55m by Giotto
* Cant Z.501 by Giotto
* Cant Z.506B by Team Daidalos, SAS~Epervier & Birdman
* Fiat CR.20 by Giotto
* Heinkel He 60 by Reaper 3-1 & DreamK
* Vickers Vildebeest by DreamK
* Ford Trimotor by Epervier & Reaper 3-1









All of these individual mods and additional info on them can be found on this site: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php Note: The Fiat CR.20 was present in Spain before the war, but only as a training aircraft.

B. A Nationalist Tiger Moth: This is not a new aircraft per se, but the old but unskinnable one put in SCW era colours, made by Juanmalapuente. Original mod by Ranwers. More info here: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,1824.0.html



C. 3 New stationary aircraft, for the Ju-87A, the Ford Trimotor and the Z506B, all made by Epervier. More info can be found here: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,15399.0.html

D. 5 new ships: Three different types of small armed Trawlers, and two Italian SCW-era Destroyers. All have been made by Giotto. (Stanislao has repainted them.) More info here: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,28884.0.html and here http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,28460.0.html




E. 10 new ground columns: One with civilian vehicles, one with horse-drawn supply, and eight with infantry, trucks, horse-drawn artillery and tanks, one for each side and appropriate the era. This simple addition is my own work.

F. 49 new skins, by Mission Bug, Archie, Agracier, Murdoc, Imme, A1_Phoenix and Juanmalapuente.

3. REQUIREMENTS: As this an update pack it will ONLY work if you already have the base pack of “IL-2 SCW” installed PLUS Update 1 AND Update 2 (which all in its turn goes on top of a clean DBW 1.71 install. You can download the base pack here!) That is VERY IMPORTANT. Follow this procedure and it is almost 100% guaranteed to work. (And as mentioned: it can’t mess up your game, as it is activated via jgsme.)

4. INSTALLATION: First: Make sure to deactive "IL-2 SCW" through jsgme. After this the installation has three easy steps:
1.   Uncompress the whole downloaded file. (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.   The two folders (“jgsmemods”, “Paintschemes”) are simply dropped in the root folder of your DBW install (for instance "C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946"). Overwrite if prompted to.
3.   In your IL-2 root folder click on the icon named “JGSME.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. After this process is finished, close JGSME, and start IL-2 the regular way. (To the disable the Mod Pack, simply reverse the process in JGSME.)

Thanks to all talented modders who have made it possible to once again fight with or against the Republic in the skies of Spain!  :)

All the kudos should go to the GREAT modders who put in all that time and talent to make the material in this pack: DreamK, Giotto, Epervier and the others. I just bundled it together.

oh I meant, I am going to fly one of your wonderful campaigns...
I would love to create campaigns myself, as my book collection is quite large and should form the basis for many a great storyline, unfortunately, that FMB is, like we say in Austria, a spanish village for me, meaning I do not have the faintest idea how to use it :)

but maybe, if I find the time I will do a after action report and post it here just to promote all the great stuff you have packed into SCW... :)

cheers

Hello guys, as posted in a wrong place (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,36832.0.html) my IL-2 SCW crashing at 70% after installation of Update Pack #3. Untill update pack #2 all works fine.

I tried to reinstall all from the beginning but the result is even as written above...  :(

Walter_Solito said to my to post the log about error, but I do not know how to do it and I don't know how to install "instant log".

Also the suggested by Griffon doesn't works... :( :(

Could you help me, please? Many thanks!!

Ciao.
