Battle of Britain. It is short for Oleg's next project, expected some time late 2007 at the earliest. There is also an older sim by Rowan with the same name that recently received a facelift and general overhaul by Shockwave productions. The latter is called BoBII: Wings of Victory.

It's actually 'Babes Over Belarus' - an eagerly awaited movie chronicling the exploits of a WWII Soviet female fighter pilot - such was the interest raised and so numerous the actresses that auditioned for the role, enough material has been gathered for a sequel entitled 'Minsk Minx Mayhem' or MMM...

The real truth is that Oleg is making an excellent game similar to those old series 'Leisure Suite Larry'.
The title is going to be 'Bonkin old Babes' = BoB

Balloons over Belgium.

It will cover the heroic adventures of the royal british female auxiliary balloon corps during WWI.

The hero, an american aviator, falls in love with a british gal and joins the r.b.f.a.b.c., disguised as blonde bombshell. When his love gets captured by evil hun soldiers he embarkes on a daring rescue operation, single-handedly breaks through the Sigfried line, invents penicillin, shoots down the Red Baron in a wild dogfight over Paris and narrowly escapes with his love in a stolen Zeppelin that carries the plans for the Death Star.

It's "Bee's own Beehive", it's something a bit like The Sims, but with insect flight simulation. Going to rock, apparently.

Cheers,

Adam-

Lots of confusion over this http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A long time ago now, two clever and industrious members of the Il2 community who go by the names Extreme_One and Poymando made a static campaign for offline play, called "Battle over Britain". Forever and a day, this has been referred to as "BoB", and was well, well in advance of any hint by the developers of the sim that there would be something called (tentatively) "Battle of Britain:Cliffs of Dover" coming from them. Battle over Britian is very available, but it is not an 'add-on' as many folks think of it, it is a campaign. Battle over Britian did introduce several new things to the sim, but although it added some sounds, splashscreens, and for the first time, a "GB" campaign branch, it was not released by 1C:Maddox Games, it was free, made with the tools shipped with the sim, and some clever thinking

Now we have news that a new sim by the same developers as this one will be made, called "Battle of Britian:Cliffs of Dover". Actually, with the latest versions of this sim, we have some trial elements of that sim. Very basic stuff, as the new sim will share nothing with this one in regards to campatibility, game engine, physics engine, etc.

Battle of Britian:Cliffs of Dover is called "BoB" around here...which immediately causes confusion with the static campaign I mentioned earlier

Battle of Britain:Cliffs of Dover is not
an add-on for this sim. It's an entirely new simulation. I will not be released anytime soon. It is in development, and could be released next year. Maybe.

If that's correct and you're happy with it, then Bob's your uncle.

More about BoB, just read this in a review:


"Besides incorporating closer-combat techniques, Bee's Own Beehive (BoB) will add an innovative side to simulated combat flight: in order to fight the enemies, the player will have to aim at them by flying the bee rear-end-first for the decisive kill (the developers like to call it 'getting the sting solution'), unlike in current conventional simulators. This will undoubtedly bring about a 180º turn to the usual sim experience."

S.
