I was just wondering if their are any plans for an official update by UBI Soft to make a Pacific Theatre game, or at least an addon? I would love to fly a Hellcat or Corsair against some Zeros. Oversea combat and carrier landings sound like fun and another challenge for realism. Yes, I have done a search and have found topics about rumors of a fall 2004 release and other things, including mentions of Mediterranean/African/Chinese(?) theatre.

One last question, I keep seeing things about the BoB engine. Is this the engine that IL-2 uses? What does BoB stand for?

And who the heck are Luthier, Oleg, and Maddox. If you can't tell, I am a new a newbie to the IL-2 scene. The last flight simulator I had was Jane's WWII Fighters, and I only had it for like 3 months before they shut down the multiplayer servers.

I appreciate any response or even someone reading this thread. Thank you in advance for taking your time, and sorry for possibly wastging it.

I am noob as well, but I'll try to help.

Oleg Maddox is the man behing IL2 and its offspring.

Luthier is one of the guys behind the Battle Over Europe expansiopn from JustFlight and Russian Rocket.


BoB is Battle of Britain. It is the next game from Oleg and co. and is now in the works.

Yes there is a Pacific Addon planned, but not much info available at this point. The designers are two gents named Luthier and Starshoy, who have signed a contract with 1:C Games (Company who designed IL2 FB). Draw your own conclusions by reading the information on the forums at this site: http://www.il2center.com/

BoB=Battle of Britain...the designer of IL2FB/Owner of 1:C Games, Oleg Maddox, is designing a new game, with a new graphics engine, around the events that occured in the BoB. read all about the BoB at this site: http://www.raf.mod.uk/bob1940/bobhome.html

Welcome to the IL2 Community

All the best, Don

actually, BoB is not 3rd party, Maddox is behind it himself. Luthier's pacific addon is 3rd party. You should probably expect it within the next year and a half.

Well OLeg is dropping some big hints and it apparently may be out much sooner (cross fingers).

Look at OLegs terse comments in this thread:
