Hello 1C:Maddox and Ubi Soft,

In documenting parts of IL-2 and preparing to document parts of FB/AEP, I often find myself trying to remember what came with which patch, and I often have to go look for release announcements or dig up the readme files. I would like to request permission to redistribute all of the game and patch readme files for FB and AEP in one archive file. Except for the version 1.0 readme files of FB and AEP, these are already freely available on line. However, they are not available in one package for easy reference.

I believe it's a good idea that I ask permission, especially with the version 1.0 readme files, since they are not otherwise publicly available. If I am not allowed to release these, then I would like to modify my request to release all of the readme files for patch releases in one archive.

I wasn't sure if I should ask Ubi Soft (if so then who?) or directly here on this forum. Since I know how to do it on this forum, here it is first.

The file would be made available for download on Eastern Skies:

Thank you,
Mike Chapman

Would still like an answer on this. Think maybe I should PM UbiRazz.

Just do it and give full credit to ubi for the readme stuff and give a link to the Patches.
