*******************************

In no particular order ....

1. The Bf-110 will be in the add-on if it gets finished in time. It's a third party cockpit so Oleg can't promised anything that is outside his control. But there's every intention to get it in there.

2. The Tempest will be in, it seems. One of Oleg's staff met Alex in Rumania last week and things are looking good.

3. It looks like the Gladiators will be AI only - the 3rd party developer says he has no time to do the cockpits now.

4. Any maps in the January add-on - the intention was not to, but at Ubi's urging we will now include a new map. I know where but until the map maker gets going it's too ewarly to say.

5. There will be 3 new ships not 2 as reported by Neil (who did a great job summarising a load of info BTW)

6. There will be 3 Normandy maps, pre and post invasion and one with an abstract "British Island Base" for those like me who prefer to land somewhere.

7. The Ju-88 will be included if Jippo and his crew finish it.

8. New AI routines will allow for hundreds of aircraft in the air at once in the new BoB sim.

9. BoB- UK planes won't be restricted to sweeps/intercepts as somebody said - I have an idea of the plane list and there's a lot to do.

10. The planes still in development will be added to FB if they're done - B25, Beaufighter etc.

11. The BoB sim is intended as the first sim with new technology. There will be add-ons and new products (Med etc) based on it if it sells well.

12. Guderian - no, I haven't mentioned anything about 3rd party maps being possible.

13. UK Apollo - Dynamic Online campaigns are coming. The question from the audience was about persistent online maps (i.e. no sequential coops but a "24 hour" mission) and that is not currently planned.

14. AKD - yes, many ground vehicles are reduced poly versions from Battlefield Command so are easy to do now.

15. Apollo - there will be new vehicles both for the new FB maps and for BoB with the latter being far more detailed.

16. GE - there will be more flyable fighters in BoB than the ones you listed.

17. Helmut - yes, American, Polish, Czechoslovak etc Sqns in BoB will be modelled.

18. Mog - BoB is just the start. Oleg is fascinated by the Lancaster ....

19. Re less planes in Bob than FB - well there were less planes and Oleg wants to model the individual physics to a far higher level.

20. Cat - you'll see almost everything you listed and plenty more. There will also be more for the Brits to do than just Spit/Hurri. We had talks with the RAF today about data for some very interesting aircraft.

21. Radar will be modelled in BoB. And new clouds/sky. And new mapping tech. And ... And ...

22. Heinz - part of the idea is to get new players into the genre, for which BoB will work better than Malta.

23. KK - the Italians flew in BoB andd will be modelled.
