IL2 Complete + the PE2 addon + the upcoming addon http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There is no better training then being able to play against/with human opponents online. And having the most up to date version makes it easier finding a server to play on.

Pacific fighters have around 180 planes less to fly in then the complete.

edit-> isn't pacific fighters included in complete? I think it's IL2fb + aces + p.fighters

Gold Edition + Pacific Fighters patched to V4.04 + paid Add-on V4.05 and beyond

OR

Complete Edition (comes as V4.04) + V4.05 and other upcoming paid-addons.

The largest population playing this game online is using the full Pacific Fighters merged version. There is a small split between V4.04m and V4.05m users at this time, but I expect when V4.06 becomes available with its multiple new planes, we'll all be back to V4.06 and V4.07 is going to add 1946 and beyond planes.

Sure, you can find a few AEP V2.04 servers and some Pacific Fighters standalone servers, but to have as many servers to choose from as possible, go for the fully merged Pacific Fighters version, if you can get it.

If for nothing else, to be able to fly in both the East-West part of the war and the Pacific. Carrier operations are the shiznet! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

The complete edition is only 239:- in swedish kronor, around 25$.

Try to find it.. it's worth every penny.

Nope. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Out of all the options, I'd say you get the least amount of fun getting only PF stand alone.

Even the "gold edition" is better game.


I would say get the "complete edition". In that one you have IL-2 FB, AEP,and PF. All this patched to 4.04m. This means you'll find a lot of people in the lobby to play with, and you'll be only one small add on away from the very last version (version that only about half the online people have it anyway).

I'd say don't get the PF stand alone. Look for that complete edition.

You can probably ask here or on the German Forum where you can find it in Germany. We have a lot of people from there and I'm sure someone will tell you where you can find it.

It seems that the complete edition and ultimate edition is the same thing .. but different names just to confuse people http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

But all stores I've searched on that claim to have Ultimate only have complete (except ubi).. So I'd like to stay with my confusion theory http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I just built a new computer and installing everything "long hand" with 5 disks and 5 patches (I think my memory serves?)just to get up to 4.04 is quite a session. I'd consider that little extra money well spent. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

The installer for the Complete Edition does call itself the Ultimate Edition. IIRC the name was changed shortly before release.
