I have been a steadfast fan of the IL-2 Sturmovik series and have held a favorable opinion of Maddox and 1C regardless of delays and setbacks.

However I find it very frustrating that I bought a product that advertises the ability to fly a Mitsubishi G4M1 Betty medium bomber but does not actually included in the game. I remember the release of the game being at the end of October. That is two and one half months without the inclusion of an advertised feature.

What gives? Through all of the earlier patches I am content to recieve what little information that 1C dishes out because the patches often include new, free additions to the game. I have expected with each of the last FOUR patches to finally recieve the promised additions that are advertised ont he game package. The least that 1C could do in my opinion would be to let us know about the progress of the advertised additions since we have already paid for them.

Don't take this the wrong way, I love the series, I think that Maddox and 1C have done an outstanding job but these patches are really frustrating because I am expecting promised game features. Can we get some kind of information about the "possible" free add-on?

Rant over.

Ok, a bit frustrating I admit...but are you telling me the big and overriding decision to buy the game was based on a flyable Betty?

Please...

they will come out with a flyable version of the G4M1. What you must ubderstand is that people just like you make the insides of the plane and i can only assume that that is a very hard thing to do. So be patient, and eventually it will come out!!!

CrazyIvan says there will be an update on the addon as soon as Oleg gets back to work after being off sick for a few days.

But I have to agree with jensenpark's opinion.

alright, you caught me! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I didnt just buy it for the betty, although i tried to make my arguement as water tight as possible exluding the fact that the package does not specify that the betty would be flyable, I am surprised now that no one caught me on that.

Mostly just frustration because it is mentioned on the box and I can't play online due to technological difficulties. Was getting all excited about new patch for the fourth time to find that there were still no new planes.

Mostly the post is an attempt to make a well constructed plee for information.

My sincerest apologies.

I totally agree with you that we badly need an update MystiqBlackCat. Hopefully it will be soon and the news will be good.

For a moment, just imagine that the new Corsair that can now take off from a carrier is an exciting new plane. Golly, we didn't have that before ! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif See, you do get new planes in this patch. Thanks Oleg.
