I know it isn't done this way, but how 'bout Oleg is responsible for actually fixing what we already have and we pay for all the additional stuff we whine for beyond what was originally promised in the game?

So does this mean the PF add-on will never see the light of day ? Oleg is on to BOB ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

PF addon will see the light. One that was promised. Others will too, but i`ll leave it to Oleg to talk about them.

Here the fact
We will need better system to play BOB. This requier mucho more money , lets me see... at list 1500 $ minimum more. + the price of BOB wich will be next to nothing compare to the new upgrade.

Second thought since we already know that third party designers make and do better jobs on designing planes and cockpits I defenitly pay more for any addons, face lift of the sim.( olders cockpits redesigned or even new stuff )
Oleg or oleg's team member can verified what's been done etc..
I think many of them are already finish.

hum now we now that BOB will be release in mid/end? 2006 , I would loce to pay for a work done to il2 waiting for the promised new BOB. .

Because there is no footage or any real BOB images for us to hope that why many hope at list for something new in il2.

lol,

I would pay 50 dallers just for a P-47N or M. Mayby even 25 dallers for a new cockpit for the razorback and the D27.

That being said, and mindlessly typed, I'll be leaving now. However, I'll be back sometime later on in a time that is most right for me.

I would pay for an AEP 2 pack, with the italian planes, the Ju88 and maybe another couple of german bombers, a few british planes (Tempest, for example), and the Pe-2. Add a couple of maps (Murmansk and others - Northern Italy? Scicily? Malta?), and I'll write a check right now. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

To be honest, the idea of BOB, while a good one, is going to require another new PC to play properly, not something I will be able to get past my Chief Financial Minister http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. That being said...and I have said this before...paying more of my cash for more aircraft, maps, etc ... with the IL2 is something I would do without hesitation. I seriously dont see how this is a bad thing...Ubi and 1C make more money and we get more things to tinker with and they get more time to do BOB.

I'm willing to pay for expansiomn packs and the like. I'm not willing to pay per plane or for stuff that should have been in the initial package.

But surely if there's a new pack that comes in the future, I'll be lining up to buy it. I have fun with all of the new stuff in this series of games and the expandability ontop of the original game is what makes things so great.

I would pay for something like an Ace Expansion Pack II, PF version, with a bunch of goodies included : planes, maps, tracks, new DGEN and NGEN campaigns, new FMB objects, additional QMB maps -- the works.

Definately I'd pay for Pacific Fighter Addon Packs. Any new Dynamic Campaigns, Planes, and other goodies would be worth it. And Oleg can use the extra time to work with BoB, experiment with PF for features he could probably perfect with the BoB engine, and we'd enjoy seeing some new features and material to flesh out the Pacific Theater. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I do not have a problem with paying but gentlemen, let's get what was supposed to be in PF first (The dreaded 3rd CD), then let's talk again about a pay add-on if there is enough material for it.

What I'm talking about here is how we get extra planes in a patch that we never paid for, yet the patch doesn't fix the stuff we already know is wrong!

Personally I don't like all this talk about pay addons. #1 it gives UBI ideas, and we know that's not always a good thing. #2, I just don't have the money.

I´m not with crazyivan on this - too early to let go of IL-2 engine. I´ll gladly pay for any addon(but I´m not against BoB neither).

Why not make money on addons while developing BoB? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

I find it hard to relate to this suggestion that I won't be able to purchase and play BoB without spending at least 500 on new hardware. I'd like to know what this really means.
Briefly, I'm stuck with my 2800+Barton, running @ 2.26Ghz on Abit NF7-Sv2.0, 1024MbDDR400, SATA Raptor, Audigy2ZS, Radeon 9700Pro. Power supply & peripherals are all good stuff too, but the gist is (or seems to be) that BoB will not run if I haven't got a 64bit system with a hugely expensive graphics solution.
Can this be real? It seems as though there is some kind of hidden agenda running here....alarm bells are ringing (or is that cash registers?)
I know I'm off topic, but it seems as though this declaration could have a negative influence on sales of the new sim. I can't afford another big upgrade...and I'm not going to buy a sim (that I've longed for since it was first announced) if it's not going to work right on my "ageing" rig! Sad but true...http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Back on topic then.....sure I would happily pay a few more quid for extra AEP/PF add-on material....notwithstanding the whiners, I know that I've always had good value from this game...and I'd be happy to contribute the cost of a night-out-at-the-pub for a bit more. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

If the hardware rumours are true, then FBAEPPF is where I'll be at for a long while - I'd better get used to it.

I agree. Pacific Fighters just never really shaped up to what I wanted, so I will not buy the product. No need to discuss my reasons or logic in this thread.

I am however, looking greatly forward to BoB. I personally do not believe that I'll need a super system just to boot and fly the game. There's a LOW graphics option for a reason, and I intend to use it, and enjoy flying.

I fully expect that BoB will be a piece of modern, well designed, scalable software that will be able to optimally utilize my 3.0Ghz CPU. Maddox has proven they can do this, the IL2 engine still lives on, and has been playable on everything from my old AMD 950/GF2 system to present. An "advanced" combat sim does NOT have to turn out like LockOn did. I have not been very encouraged though, as BoB development pics/info are now a thing of the past. I very much hope that E3 will give us at least some insight into the game's new technology.

I don't have a problem with paying for addons....but with conditions.

Mainly input into what will be added/modified and being kept informed as to what is being developed with reasonable deadlines projected and met.

Plus uncontested rights to complain when above conditions are violated.

How about free patches contain non flyable ac. Then you can pay to download the cockpits. With a bit of forethought, both configurations could be compatable online http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif.

I would be willing to pay a reasonable price for add-on aircraft. To me that's fair. I'll take free stuff, but if paying $15 or $20 for 5 or 10 new aircraft gets me them faster, I'd do it. I'm always game for new planes!

Edit: As Obi_Kwiet says, I'd like to see all the 3rd party stuff included at some point. Hello Do-335 et al.

why don't Oleg just hurry up with the final patch for pf and give us that G4m betty and move on to BOB.

Fly for the U.S., Japan, Great Britain, and Australia in famous fighters such as the F6F Hellcat, the deadly Japanese Zero, and the UK€s Supermarine Seafire. Flyable bombers such as the Aichi D3A1 Val, <span class="ev_code_RED">G4M2 Betty (Missing) </span>, SBD Dauntless, and A-20 Havoc are also included. Over 40 flyable aircraft models are available.

We do have enough planes.

The sim itself has to be finetuned like
the fm etc. and other things has to be make
better.

But I will pay for an addon to support Oleg
and his team.
