I would stay away from Mods and hacks to IL2, they are what divided the community, confused new pilots and hastened the fall of the online community. Unofficial Mods and hacks never had any noble reason for existing.

When everyone flew the official patches there would be four or five-thousand virtual pilots online on weekend-nights. It was just common sense that the more versions of the sim there were the less people there would be flying each version, plus new IL2 pilots had a tough enough time just getting the official version of IL2 installed let alone deciding which hacked version of it to try and getting it installed with no bugs etc..

The best IL2 pilots in the golden-era besides flying hard-settings of IL2 never touched mods with a ten-foot pole and they still won't.
