I was thinking of downloading this.  Can you get points and unlock things with this generator like you can with the built in one?  I got the premium BoS that was supposed to have everything unlocked, but I only see some preset load outs;  everything else I have to unlock via the campaign.

Thanks,
S! Rel

Ahh - :).  Oh well I've been having fun unlocking all of the IL2 load outs via the campaign, but I think I'll go and do this anyway :).

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm still unlocking via campaign :)

The campaign has helped me learn the game better - which I suggest that for most everyone.

It was from Pat Wilson's IL2 generator that we based our original Forgotten Skies war - and from there I think Scorp built upon the concepts.

BOS series has a different mission objective - I really think we could go back to early FS concept where you destroy primary/secondary objectives.   I like this because it makes the wars more direct and less open ended.   Sometimes when it's too open ended everyone just avoids everyone - whereas when you know you must destroy (and vice versa protect) and area, it creates some good tension.

Progress...

Yeah I was unlocking via the campaign as well, but I went ahead and unlocked the weapons anyway :).  I'll still see about going through the campaign as it unlocks the skins.  I also like the campaign system forcing you to complete an objective - not only that but forcing you to fly to the next waypoint to get a successful mission.  This encourages you to fly a little smarter,  as if your aircraft is damaged too much and you can't fly to that last critical waypoint the mission is a failure.  It's actually a good test of your navigation skills too, comparing what you see outside with what you see on the map. I can se how it might get old after a while (got lost one sortie and I almost ran out of gas before finding  the post target waypoint! :) )

Overall, I like BoS, except for the limited nationalities/aircraft variety compared to IL2/46, IMO it's a better feling of flight - although I've only tried single player mode so far.
