Attention: This is a NEW INSTALLATION, and not an upgrade.

Dear IL-2/FB/PF Community, and UQMG users,

It is my pleasure to announce the immediate availability of the most exciting UQMG version to date: UQMG for FB+AEP+PF. This is a brand NEW INSTALLATION, and not an upgrade. It is a completely revamped UQMG that is designed following many requests from the community and it includes very exciting new features, as well as all the easy to use features you are used to. The total number of updates and new features are just way too many to describe, so I will highlight the most important ones below. If you have never used UQMG before please give this totally cost free application a try.

What exactly is UQMG?
UQMG is a quick mission generator that fills a gap between PF’s QMB and FMB. UQMG is easy like QMB, albeit with countless more features, some of which are as advanced as the ones in FMB. UQMG is free, professionally designed, has been around since 2001 when IL-2 was first released, and was featured in two major flight simulation publications. UQMG does things that QMB does not, most notably:
* Creates Coop and DF Arena in addition to SP
* More than 32 planes (over 20 Thousand, yes 20000, depending on your PC)
* Start on base, water, carrier, or air with several possibilities
* 47 Maps from IL-2 to PF (constantly being updated)
* ALL aircraft in IL-2 to PF (updated as new PF patches are released)
* Use composite flights as easily as normal flights:
- Several Tug/Glider combinations
- TB3+I16 SPB Zveno
- Fw190+Mistel
- Historical Ace flights without Ace repetition
* Select ground units easily or automatically match them with scenario and year
* Scenery based on PC capability
* Mission winning conditions/objectives
* Write briefing with mission header that are automatically generated
* Two additional tools: UQMM (Mission Manager) and UQMB (International Mission Briefer)
* Missions are designed in an average of less than two minutes, and generated in seconds

To install UQMG:
* Download WinZIP file from
* UnZIP it in a temporary directory/folder, such as "c:\temp" or create one. Right Click on the zip file and then go to the Winzip options, then select "Extract Here".
* Double click the file "setup.exe"
* Preferably, use the default directory installation in the setup.
* Start UQMG from the Start Windows menu.
* Follow ALL Instructions closely when you install it.
* Whether you are familiar with UQMG or new to it, I recommend you to click the "Tutorial" yellow button to start enjoying the features of UQMG right away. It is easy to read, and you will have lots of fun with it building missions that are very playable.

For UQMG Veterans:
* After you install this version you can transfer any of your custom "uqmg" mission data files to the new UQMG. Read instructions in the File menu in UQMG. After that, you can uninstall the previous version of UQMG.

Best Regards

The internet is as slow as a wet week right now.
I will have to wait till a better time to get the new UQMG.
Am I reading what uberdemon is saying right?
Can the 'old' UQMG & the 'new' UQMG be kept on your HDD?

There is no reason to keep the old UQMG once you install the new one; all maps, and features of the old one are improved,and all sample missions from the previous upgrades are all there. The "old" UQMG is simply an outated version... but yes, to avoid problems with the new installation, the default install directory is different.

The current supported version is the one I released, which is 5.0.32.

Hope that clears things.
