Will the Aces pack create a new version of FB, for purposes of online play?

If a host has the "Aces" pack, and I don't, will I be able to join that server?

Put another way, will I have to purchase an expansion pack (contents of which I have very little interest or enthusiasm) in order to be able to fly online?

Will all further patches only be applicable to owners of the expansion pack? And since the pack changes the version (apparently), owners of the pack won't be able to play on normal FB servers? This is why I hate expansion packs, they only divide communities and create complications.

Will the BOB expansion pack include the aircraft in the ACES expansion pack?

new version of FB happens when there is a change to the SFS file

BoB is not an expansion pack. It is a completely new standalone game expected for 2005, I think.

I don't see what the complications are. FB is not a charity operation and the success of add-on will likely determine future support. The assumption is that most people who are still flying FB will upgrade to the add-on, and therefore supporting FB+add-on makes the most sense from here on out.

Agreed, A.K.Davis.

If you don't want to pay for the addon, you can still play with those who don't want it, too. So, this should make you quite happy http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
