Anybody else? Just wondering. I am completely serious. If Ubi released a "Torpedo Plane" addon with cockpit flyable Avenger and Kate I would pay $50 US for it.

I would happily pay $200 for a paid addon with these. I'd go as high as $300. Whatever the price that would be necessary to make it feasible to get these:

--TBD Devestator (cockpit not feasible due to no references)
--TBF / TBF-1C / TBM cockpits
--Helldiver w/ cockpit
--F4U-4 w/ cockpit
--P-47D-30 or P-47D-40 w/ cockpit
--P-47N w/ cockpit
--cannon-nosed B-25 cockpit
--post-refit models of the Lexington and Saratoga
--USS Hornet, Yorktown, Wasp, and Intrepid.
--generic CVE class
--USS North Carolina, South Dakota, Arizona, California, Texas, and Missouri.
--generic Idaho-class.
--IJN Shokaku, Zuikaku, Kaga, Agaki, Soryu, Hiryu.
--Generics for each of the Kongo, Fuso, Ise, Nagato classes.
--Generics for at least two IJN cruiser and two destroyer classes that would well-represent those most prominent in action against the USN ships we have / will have.

--...and of course, carrier catapults.

Too bad it won't happen-I guess they don't care for greenbacks!

For addons to future air sims, companies should probably look at how the old wargame industry does it now. Sell a preorder and have a goal set at where it is profitable and only then make it-it just might work.

they need approximately 2 million people to simultaneously say the same thing, and it will probably happen. let me know when to sing, I'll join the chorus.

Planeeater, I would to. I'm glad this didn't get labelled as a PF sucks thread because it isn't. As I said, I'm serious. I honestly don't know what my price limit would be for just those 2 planes. Start throwing in other dream rides like the B-24 and good lord man, we're talking serious money.

Count me in too. I get so much enjoyment from this sim it's almost obscene. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif But I would easliy pay $50 for those rides.

I would like to know how they made out on FB, AEP and PF, which are all basically addons. I would think that they wouldn't do too bad with a "PF completion" addon, but with focus on BOB, I won't really hold my breath.

Planeeater, the Intrepid is already in CV 11, Essex Class. There was no other Intrepid. Did you mean Enterprise?

Yeah, my mistake.

You know what else I'd want included? More civilian sea traffic. Just because there was a war going on doesn't mean every civilian vessel instantly was drydocked for the duration.

I wouldnt to be honest. I ponied up my money for pf already. Twice as a matter of fact. One for me and one for support of the game series.

But I would like to see them in game.

You guys need a long talk with the whiner/ripoff crowd. Surely there's got to be some compromise for sanity http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I would not. Ridiculous to pay as much as the game for two planes. Besides there would have to be a much more complex damage model for ships to make it even worth having them in-game.

You guys must be Phuckin nuts to say you will pay $200-$300 for a update on a game that we will be loosing suport on in this next year. This pup will be dropped like a bad habit once they get closer with BOB, Oleg himself said that they are starting to switch thier efforts that direction.

I'd pay $200 easy for what Ant-Eater said. Throw in a Shoho and an Independence light carrier and an IJN seaplane tender, and I'd go $250 (seriously). Shoot, if they had a made a Pacific Air War sim just covering the torpedo bombers (TBD, TBF, B5N, B6N, B7Y), I'd have paid $50-$100 for that alone. The Pacific War (specifically Pacific Air War carrier-based anti-shipping) is where its all at for me; I'll be flying Pacific Fighters (and maybe even CFS2) long after BoB is release . . .

LOL, got one. That's the deal, I was just thinking about this past weekend my wife and went out for "dinner and a movie" and ended up dropping close to a hundred bucks. What's $50, $100, $200 or more for something you will get so many hours enjoyment out of?

I paid $40 for the game, I'll be ****ed if I'm going to pay $50 for a couple of planes!!!! $20 for several planes and the Solomon Islands, I thing that's a reasonable deal.
