With the release date a little over a week away, why hasn't there been any word of it going gold?

Or did I miss something?

There's the Aces expansion pack.

ALso there is FB gold. It has the orginal FB with the latest patch 1.3 and with the aces expansion pack already on disc i think.

I heard a Valve employee visiting Maddox games sneezed on Oleg and the Aces expansion will now enter an endless cycle of delays.

DJKruse wasn't asking about FBGold vs. AEP. In fact ajafoofoo's answer was the only attempt at an answer pertaining to the question.

Anyway, I haven't heard about AEP or FBGold going gold (lest anyone not know, going gold is when the final version of the game is burned and sent to the production facilities). It is strange, but then it's probobly being produced in Russia. For it to be in stores next Tuesday here in the United States, it'd have to have been shipped already and thus, it would've had to have gone gold weeks ago. Maddox probobly decided it wasn't worth mentioning.

Right on Lechuck59, Gone gold gets its name from the burning process of the game to cd. Hopefully you're right about Maddox just not mentioning or else it will be a while before any of us get the expansion. Im a noob so it doesnt make much difference to me right now since Im already overwhelmed with things to learn and plenty to fly. In a way Im glad Im late to the scene and I can tell Ive finally found my place in the gaming world. Flying is definitely my thing, espeacially combat. If anyone read this far... I feel like Im sooo far behind you all, about how long did it take you guys to learn a lot of this information and aquire the skill to being such great piltos(combat and in general)? I know its a question without a specific answer for myself since everyones different, but give or take.

Maybe they're aiming for a surprise announcement. Mid-March we'll suddenly see that pre-orders are shipping.

I believe that AEP is still not GOLD, but will be "soon"= 2-3 weeks.

Altitude, speed, manoeuvre and.... CRASH!

To answer you, ThirdCoastNickP, I got FB over my Christmas break. I've been playing consistently since then, approximately three months, and while I've made progress against the AI, I'm still awful online. I think much of my difficulty has to do with where I play. I see no point in flying without a cockpit on so I'm generally forced to fly on full real servers which attract the veterans with years of IL2 experience.

In short, I'd say it will take you at least six months of consistent play before you settle on a plane, come to know it, and then your opponents.

Maple_Tiger 'gold' means that testing is completed and the product is ready for distribution. 'Gold edition' is just a name for FB combined with AEP - different animal.

Your assertion of 'insignificance' is a question not only of scale, but of what it is precisely you take 'you' to be. Then there is also the question of 'belief' namely it's valence and terminal relevance. In our culture we commonly ascribe tremendous significance to belief - however it is my position that this is a misidentification - 'faith' and 'belief' are not the same - belief is conviction - often based on emotional identification - faith - in the most real sense, is more like an organ that may or may not develop depending on the absence or presence of certain kinds of 'nourishment' and the capacity to 'assimilate' and 'digest' same. Unfortunately this last is most often supplanted by belief - which can not provide what is needed - and can only crudely approximate (like a photograph of food) the reality of 'faith' which is not a mere matter of conviction or even choice - let alone emotionalism. Virtually the entire social and historical context for understanding the reality of this distinction is badly distorted.

Do you bother reading the replies? I pointed that out yesterday.

I love this board and most of the people on it, but for God's sake, read the topic, the post and the answers before adding your two cents.

All i know is that it says FB gold and that Aces is included.

Aces on the other hand is Aces.

If I remember right, the "Gold" announcement for FB was really late too. I think I got the FB package shipped from UBI only a few days after the Gold announcement. Maybe next week is still a possibility. Then again, I'm preparing myself for hearing "two weeks" next week. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Im guessing its already gone gold. I remember hearing that there will be a patch with 2 or 3 planes right as soon as, or after the add-on is released. Assuming the patch is ready or almost, it must be gold, or they would put the new aircraft in AEP instead of a patch.
