Even with the fake B-17,it looks decent for now. I guess it will be a great one when it does come out.

I smell something very fishy going on here & it aint' my ex wife either. I think this is the same kinda crap being pededled out like that barbarosa campain pack that's being sold 3rd party on the net. Wich is total BS. I'm sure that these *******es got the skins from Il-2 Skins.com & thats all it is (more than likely) is a few skins & some missions. IT IS NOT AN OFFICAL ADD ON FOR FB. If you notice their B-17 is really a Pe-8 in a b-17 painted skin. that's all. save your cash guys...this thing is junk. Wait for Oleg & 1C to release the real add on.

hmmm. you don't suppose Xicat is behind this? seriously, you bring up an interesting point, Coppper. we should be wary of firms trying to sponge off 1MC's work. eyes open and check six, boys.

On the face of it, it looks like a better proposition than the barbarossa addon. A lot of it does undoubtedly duplicate what already exists, but if it puts everything into one coherent easy to use package there's a point to it for someone who doesn't want to trawl around gathering the bits and pieces.

I won't be buying it though, The paid add ons will make this mostly redundant, and Battle of Britain completely.


If they are stealing freeware built by enthusiasts, they should go to prison for a good long stretch.

I downloaded some tracks and training missions, and I feel embarassed to report...
Haven't tried the missions yet...

What's wrong about Ossi's Barbarossa add-on, beside the outrageous pricing?

I hope Starshoy/Luthier's Battle over Europe, whose containt will certainly be of the highest standard, will be decently priced (Euro 15/20 at the most), especially considering it's going to sell a lot.
Given there's Just Flight behind, I've got my doubts though...

You shouldn't take Copperheads repeated rants against 3rd party add-ons too seriously. He obviously is one of those people who would never buy a book by Shakespeare, Goethe, or Hemingway because he himself has learned how to use the alphabet when he was at school. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Why should you buy a book (or mission pack) someone else has written if you have learned to write yourself? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

All the skill, research, and very many hours of hard work that go into the making of a campaign don't count for him.

BTW I haven't seen any of his missions yet. I'd like to know how good they are.

Battle of Britain (using a non British map) with the Hurricane, 109 Emil, Ju87B Stuka and Me 110 Zerstorer.

Don't worry all that can't stand to PAY for addons...

Poymando and I are working on the FREE "Battle Over Britain" RAF addon (see sig-pic)

It's coming along really well now.

And NTESLA is working on the British Voice pack which will also be FREE!

Why pay? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Oh yeah!

And you can download the "BBQ voice pack" for IL-2 over at mudmovers for FREE. (Basically Germans and Russians speaking English)

Get it under IL-2 essentials NOT FB but it works really well with FB too.

It looks like a good project to me though. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
