Starting out with just a handful of aircraft, community member Utopioneer has been busy building a tutorial campaign for a wide variety of aircraft in the IL-2: Great Battles Series. So many in-fact that his flight school campaign now covers 33 aircraft spread across the various titles of the series. Here are the latest details!
Training on a per aircraft basis
One of the issues sometimes leveled at flight simulators in general is the lack of in-game tutorials. There’s a lot of basic knowledge that gets skipped or assumed and a lot of aircraft specific knowledge that is needed to get the most out of your aircraft. Although not officially part of the IL-2 series, Utopioneer’s Flight School fills that need to learn on each aircraft in the sim – individually.
We’ve seen the community help to support the training needs of others with a variety and versatility of material beyond what any developer could manage to do and this is another great example.
Each Flight School campaign features eight missions including,
- Basic flight through waypoints
- Shoot down a bomber
- Ground Attack
The 33-aircraft now covered by Flight School so far covers every single light fighter along with the U-2VS and The S.E.5a and Fokker D.VII and more are on the way! Additionally, the campaigns are now translated thanks to the efforts of community members Serdalf (French), 6FG_Big_Al (German), =gRiJ=Roman- (Spanish), ITAF_Airone1989 (Italian).
