    Ok, so I want to fly the jets because i think their tottally freakin awesome right?

    Well Its not an option on the quick mission... And when Make a unit in full builder mission the spot where it says for the person to fly the plane, wont let you click it.

    Help please? I guess i dont know really what im doing. I want to know how I can select it so that I fly that plane on full mission builder.

    Do you have Pacific Fighters merged with IL2? This sounds like a case of the Coral Sea map. It's the one map in Quick Mission Builder that won't allow you to select non-naval planes, jets included. Try selecting another map and see what happens.

    I haven't got a clue what you just said there.

    Hmmm, this is new to me. :-k
    Are you trying to select a non-flyable plane by any chance? Not evey plane in the game is available to the player I'm afraid. Although all of the jets should be. Hmmm. :-k

    Well, when I go to quick builder missions. I can select a plane to fly... the ME's (and jets) are not on the list no matter what of the 3 maps i choose they are not there... But when I click an allied plane or enemy plane they have all the planes including the Me's I dont get it...

    I'm stumped. Short of a reinstall, I couldn't tell you what to try. Anyone else have an idea?

    He must be using the original IL-2 where the Me-262 wasn't flyable...

    In that case, the Me-262 is not flyable in the original IL-2. The first game in the series that includes a flyable Me-262 is IL-2 forgotten battles, but if you're interested in flying jets I guess you should get '46' which includes the whole series plus addons and many experimental german and russian jets.

    1946 also includes the manchuria and Pe-2 add-on
    it cost me $40 here, and it cost the same here as the complete edition IL-2]

    and the bonus DVD rocks, now i can't wait for BoB (coming here this Feb) and they got airshows and other stuff in it too
