:P :P :P :P :P

Well here we are again another year gone by who knows where :? just gone !
after a few changes and a few set backs we are still in action providing il2 mods and a home for our members who share a common interest in mods and all things il2 and aviation in general
a big thanks to PA willy and Patrulla-azul who continue to provide hosting and support for FreeIl2modding for with out his continued sponsorship FM would be a memory
also a big thanks to all the other guys who contributed mods and helped with information and problem solving for our members.
and special thanks for C.Watson and Doc Strangelove who have tirelessly contributed to FM and have been instrumental in so many mods.
i hope Ton is doing well and having a good rest his expertise in all things Il2 and his general day to day presence is missed by all i think

Still another year ahead and many new mods and innovations in the pipe line for the never ending improvement
of still the biggest most diverse collection of ww2 and military aircraft assembled into one flight sim
that a man can still play at home without being online and be able to modify himself for his own tastes and requirements

As it has sorta become a tradition here at FM to have a little something to release for our members here at Xmas
and never being able to wait for Xmas morning myself
this year being no exception :lol:
over the last couple of months i have assembled a couple of upgrades to play with over the Xmas holidays
sooo
from the FM team
thanks to all for your continued support and wishing you and your loved ones all a very merry Xmas and a happy new year
cheers Barnesy :D :D

GUMPY
Testing for 409/410 versions general bug hunting

doc strangelove
help with finding cockpit files required for 409/410


INSTALL:
Add the FM P-39 Uprade pack folder to your mods folder choose your install type class files
see the 409/410 patch read me
Make sure the P39 folder loads at the top of your mods folder for testing so you can see all the improvements then move to where suits your install
disable any other p39 mods such as cockpits , wheel mods , etc
thats it :P


* NOTE if you have WXtech cockpits installed disable them so you can see the new cockpit then decide which you want
i have just seen a video that seems to mix both :?


*NOTE VP MOD PACK
due to some skin mod that is incorporated in the pack the default skins posted with the pack are not used on most models even if loaded first in the mod pack
but replaced with something else usually very old .
eventually if you cycle thru various maps and try your plane the default skin might show for example if using the Normandy map all the defaults show
not sure if this is by design or a fault
