We just recieved an incredible expansion to the best game ever created but you would hardly know it outside of the forums here. If you look at the main page you would still think the game is in development, complete with development updates. Yet no release announcement? Also I haven't seen much on internet gaming sites like Gamespot and others.

I am only saying this out of concern as I want the most support possible for 1C/Maddox and continued financial success. The more the merrier, so lets try to get more.

I have always thought the same. I mean you go to the game store and check out other flight sims that make claim to being the best sim going and you know better because you know which sim is the best. I feel that more gaming people need to know about this sim, but like you said, we never hear anything about FB outside of these forum walls. Whoever is in charge of marketing in the contract between Ubi and Maddox games is flat not doing their job, IMO. Strange for me to be able to make a comment about this because I've thought about it that way for a long time. I feel with the correct marketing approach, Oleg could enjoy seeing thousands playing his sim all at once in HL and/or Ubi, not to mention all the offliners. I've felt this way for a long time. Glad to get it off my chest! Thanks! S!

I agree 100%.... It stinks too. This product could make more for Oleg and 1C than it does if they just gave it a little more publicity. Surely the cost of advertising cant be so prohibitive that they cant even market the thing. If not for the word of mouth there would be no sales...... Hmmmmmm maybe THATS why Oleg still comes here and supports us with this.. because he knows WE are his advertising....just like we know that he & 1C are the best d@mn flight sim developers thus far.

Reminds me of the Commodore 64, and the Amiga.
The best, by far, of any computers available at that time but no marketing. Well VERY ineffective marketing, they advertised to their current customers. Result: no more Amiga !
