S!

For my part I don't know yet - haven't decided. I think this time I will wait until I have tried a demo - or if none available I will check the forums to see how many bugs there are. Not that I think it will be crap - I'm sure there will be great gfx & loads of lovely planes & features but if there are too many flaws reported like the many sound issues we have with FB - I will think twice. But anyways, I'm looking forward to see the first screenies.

Another thing: I think perhaps it was a little early they announced the upcomming BoB sim - I'm afraid it will steal the focus from FB which (in my country) came out less than six months ago. Hey! we just got the babe running!!! I know there are people working on addons & stuff but this might be the end of FB.

& a third thing: I'd say we make a contest or something & we should make it official: The first person who scores a confirmed online BoB kill (on the a special contest-server) wins a trip to see 1C:Maddox studios & have coffee with Oleg&Co! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

How's about that?

In 3 years it will be amazing to see whats going to be out there and Im sure there will be some very competive sims to go against it unlike how things are now where nothing comes close to the graphics of il2 fb, fms are another story http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

We'll see. Depends on last "patches" coming for FB. (no I'm not waiting for new planes)

But maybe 1C can do realistic (not game-balanced) sim when no VVS planes are around.

Most propably I will buy it nevertheless.

If it only includes BoB, then I probably won't buy. But if it includes the entire war, then my answer would most likely have to be yes.

I will probably purchase it.

I am too excited abou tit? NO, not at all.

As everyone has said, BOB has been done so many times. I am sure Maddox can do it better, but it doesn't have any learning potential for me. It is not going to make me go out and do some research like the Eastern front did or the Med theatre would.

Very underwhelming

- Will You Buy 1C: Maddox: Battle of Britain When It Comes?

How can I say? It's a year and a half until it's released, and of course I'll be watching for all the news and updates here. Of course, I may as well start saving now, since a new PC is going to be necessary before the software arrives. Will the sim support 64 bit OS and hardware? We'll find out. Of course by then we'll all be using PCIE graphics cards, and who can guess what direction that will take.

So anyway, I'll probably be playing FB even as the BoB game is being released. I'll just wait and see what's coming, and of course drool over the development screens. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Obviously. Anybody who posts that they're not buying it for this reason or that reason is just trolling in emotionalism.

If you're a real flight sim fan, youll buy any sim that promises good flying fun. Why else are we here? The more sims the better.

Can't imagine the stuck-upedness of the people who sit by their computers, arms folded, nose in the air, whining "I'm not going to buy that, it's not exactly what I asked for!" Ya - ya, tell it to the Tooth Fairy.

For God's sake, it's not an election, it's a game.

Of course, every Brit sim enthusiast will.

My wife said: "You'll no doubt spend hundreds of pounds upgrading the graphics card, the chip, the mobo, the monitor, the memory . . . and all just so you can play a game that costs thirty quid? And you think women are illogical?"

I couldn't think of a suitable reply . . .

XyZspineZyX
10-08-2003, 10:31 AM
Yes.

I'll buy any WWII flight sim (even if I sell it on Ebay a week later, like CFS3). C'mon it's hardly a high-risk proposition.

And yes, it being 1C:Maddox means I have absolutely no doubt I'll want to keep it, as it'll be the best thing on my hard-drive. And I'll be buying any interim addons for FB, too.

Two years from now with better graphics, computers, etc it will make Lomac and Il-2 look like the old SWOTL...

- yes, and so will everyone else.

That's what you think. I'm not upgrading my computer just to play a game which environment doesn't appeal to me.

Il2 and FB cost me more than a few hundred thousands Euros just to keep my comp able to play them. That's not gonna happen with a BoB thing.

I'm making a list of those who said they wouldn't buy it and keeping it handy for when BoB comes out and you DO buy it and I can send you a nice big crow to eat!

I'll buy it. It'll have a new engine with better graphics and such. There will certainly be ad-ons/expansions. And last but not least, 1:C is not naive or stupid. They know BoB has been done repeatedly and will most asuredly put their "blue ribbon" stamp on it as far as quality and realism goes.

Yes.

Buying BoB? Without a doubt! I think Oleg's new sim will be fantastic. I guess I would have preferred the MTO but BoB is also very exciting. I'm sure MTO will be the next seris in line.

My guess is that BoB will be out in Q2 of 2005 which is fine cuz I need that time to upgrade. Till then, I think FB with the add-ons should keep me busy enough. I _really_ enjoy flying the P-40 now that I have a good grasp on CEM.

Buying it really depends. If it only covers the summer and fall of 1940 I may not. If it covers all the way up to '45 then it'll become a must have for me.

Put me down for my copy. Fifteenth remake of that campaign or no, the realism immersion factor even with known faults for FB is such as to assure I'll be buying the next product.

Will I buy an Oleg BoB?

VERY likely... barring death, marriage or similar misfortune. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hi,

I'll *certainly* buy it if I have the hardware to run it.

Software engineers know that they can always write the code better the second go they have at it so to build it from the 'ground up', knowing what they know from Il-2/FB, it could be a whole lot better (and it is excellent now!).

To put things into perspective about how good this game really is, go out and hire an XBOX and the 'Starsky and Hutch' game for the evening....

Besides, whose side is Oleg going to 'overmodel' if there are no Russian a/c involved? ;-)

Cheers,
Norris

1-1/2 years away. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

The friggin N.Koreans could put California in the sea by then with Nukes. I'll just wait and see .

Frankly, I can't believe someone hasn't already come along with a competitive peer to the IL2-FB by now.

MSFT just pooped on their own feet with CFS3, what a joke. It's hard to believe the CFS2 is so totally superior to CFS3. They sure let down an bunch of their followers LOL

Oleg would be smart to be pouring some solid effort into the IL2-FB. I don't know why, but I kinda get the idea he's off on something else. Why do I say that? It's just that all the proposed add-ons are being done by third party designers, and I haven't seen anything that would indicate much activity from inhouse 1C:Maddox.

Before someone jumps down my throat, I should say...I did read sometime ago that 1C:Maddox was working on Flight models for the third party add-on aircraft. I'm not sure how hard or time consuming that is.

My only whine is the lousy FMB; other than than I'm glad we've go what we've got. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

il2 was great, FB is great (as soon as they get the sound fixed). I don't see why a maddox games battle of britain won't be just as great? I'm all in!*

If I am still flying Online in Combat Sims 2 long years from now, then yes I will definatley buy it, as will a whole new Generation of Simmers when that time comes.

It will be a great Game with 1C as its developer, however that is 2 looooong years from now guys.

Shortly the Pacific will arrive in FB courtesy of the Japanese Zero by 1C and this web site, link below

http://www.geocities.com/blackwulf1_2000/kg55.html

Now we are talking more about the HERE and NOW when it comes to Combat Flight Sims.
Not the distant future.
Incidently WELL DONE to OLEG and TEAM in regards to the Japanese ZERO.
Excellence as usual!

If the game includes a lot of both gameplay and graphical changes/improvements, perhaps a totally new engine and AI, and I guess they are working on that due the time for the release, I'd buy it..
But I'll stick with FB for now... Until something better is released..
