Just curious about the "big" AC addon, and trying to not have another "wobble" thread.

Rumours say Christmas time, but rumours are just that...

Knowing my luck, probably the day after I lose all my limbs in a freak vacuuming incident...

El laurens, no time scale/deadline has been announced (& I don't blame 'em one bit after the fuss with 4.02 being delayed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif ) so just grin and bear it ol' buddy!

Oh and try to hold back from asking too often - tho your (& Imp Star Dueces, jds's and RZs) post(s) was balanced and well presented it seems that some others around here can't refrain from Oleg bashing or a nice round of zenophobia when it comes to addons/patches, late or otherwise, so don't give em an opportunity!

All the best

It was an honestly asked question.

I meant no troll.

S!

I support El's question. He has always been a dedicated IL2 pilot and he only asks, if anyone may know, as I do.

Anyone know?

S!

Roger that ElAurens. Sorry did not mean to come across like a finger wagger... it was an honestly asked question (and one I'd like to know the answer to too, if I'm honest! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif )

No troll accusation, no angling license required, just fed up of seeing honest posts like this turned into flaming wrecks thanks to some of the ungratefuls out there. Didn't mean any thing against you.

Tired and crabby (bad day at work!)

ElAurens: sorry...couldn't resist to respond to your post w/ a smart*** comment.

If i were 1c, i'd never announce any type of date for release of project "X"...

really looking forward to the Mossie tho!

The smart ***ed answer: One really, really, really cold day. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

The truthful answer: No one knows, but we hope for one day, but when that day is announced, add two weeks, be sure. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Next new small patch that we plan to release in the end of August is v4.02 and will contains:

- Changes and tunes in new FM.
- Yak-7B, 1942 with M-105PF engine
- P-47D boosted for use of 150 octan (almost P-47M performance).


None of the large list were ever promised for 4.02 but for the freeware addon or the russia only addon(*). Only the Yak-7b 1942 and the P-47D were promised - and recieved.

Knowing 1:C's record on ETAs, they should probably wait until after it's release to announce such things. Johann63, lay off the pineapple for awhile http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

A whole Il2 series is dead for Maddox Games, their main priority is now the russian addon (high demand for La7R to balance the game) and then BoB.Anything other is labeled: when time allows..

Oleg said a while back that he expected to have the add-on at beta stage in November at the very earliest. So, take from that what you will.

Being new to AEP, pacific fighters and the patches, the possibility of yet more new planes to learn is making me break out in a sweat...as it is i can barely get the current crop to land without ploughing a trench through the runway. It'll be fun breaking a brand new tempest though...

Can't get to the new patch for another 2 months. Maybe the new Aircraft will be out by then, **** I'm jealous of ya'll, wobbling or not.

From what i understood by Oleg's announcements over the last months, the Platinum DVD will contain the 4.02 version of the lot.

So, before the DVD is already in the market don't even think about a free addon.

I'd say sometime around the coming spring. They'll need to keep us interested until the release of BoB.
