I was wondering if PF would be the last installment in this series. Beyond a couple of patches, is there any possibility of any add-ons or expansion packs for this series? (like an ACES) kind of thing.

I have heard the il2:fb engine referred to as "long in the tooth", but nothing else in this genre even touches the original il2 yet. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There is actually quite a backlog of stuff (eg. user made 3d models) that is still in the pipeline for the Il-2 series.

There's Jippo & Co's superb Ju-88, Tempest, Spit XIV, Do-335 and lets not forget the incredible work the guys at Club Med have put together either http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I have no idea if there will be another pay for add-on (there is certainly plenty of material) or if it just likely to be patches, but there is lots more still to look forward to yet http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Well. I think this sim has a ton of life left in it. PF, in spite of using the same graphics engine, seemed like a major innovation to me.

Even when BoB comes out, I have the feeling that IL2 will be around in some way. Just the scale of it alone, I don't see how anyone would ever again confine themselves to one setting.

I always thought a bomber add-on would be a good idea. I really like the B-25. I could switch markings on the He-111 and pretend, but it's much better with the real thing. Oleg could make an add-on with maybe 4 heavy bombers, a couple of campaigns and a handful of single missions. I'd buy it. Anyway............

Right, Neg-Gee...lots of content yet in the works..Jippos' Ju88 is much anticipated as is that Tempest I keep noticing....

Not to mention the ongoing code tweaks and enhancements that Oleg made mention of in one of his recent postings...

...I wonder when the Ju88 patch will come along...two weeks?

Two weeks for sure heywooood http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

james_ander, I don't know if you saw it but there are a set of 3D interior models for the B-29A. (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=26310365&m=9711098732)

From what I've seen so far, that looks a good bet for a flyable 4-engined bomber in the IL-2 series. I've heard some rumourings about both the B-17 and B-24 but don't have anything so concrete for them.

I would gladly fork over another $40.00 for each of the following...

1) Flyable B-17, B-29, Lancaster, PE-8 Plus corrected loadout and all loadout options for the rest of the planes. This is a very big job in case you haven't noticed!

2) A Med. and a Chinese map add-on with some more of the fighters filled in.

3) Make it so that cool 1C submarine game can be added on!

So, you can see that this game actually has life 'O plenty in it if we just fork over a few bucks. Of course, we need to stop all our friends and bore them with how great this game is. We need to promote it and show that it is not a dead end!

Yes, I'd pay for that too Lucky, as would most here I imagine. I think they have done nice work on the bombers we have so far.

I don't expect them to work hard and give us all those planes for free.

It feels as the IL-2 series not done yet.
With all the improvement in pf, it will take a year or so before I´ll catch up and will be able to fiddle with it all. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I feel no need of any BoB yet...it can wait a while still. There´s no competition to PF on the market - No artists and developers good enough it seems. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

I hope MG wont scrap IL-2 engine for some year or two http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Keep them addons comin...I´ll buy them all http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Even though I do find the Ta152C interesting I thik it is not that important, but I think we should be getting it anyway. I would prefer a FW190G since German side needs more and better ground pounders or maybe even the 210 (410 was it called?).

Today I just read about the Swordfish and even though I never would fly it, I think it has priority over Ta152C.

This is the Grand Prix Legends (circa 1998 and still going strong) of the flight sim world.

I think we should all e-mail UBI and let them know we'd fork over the dough for another round of expansions. Hey mods!... what e-mail address do we spam for this?

I've got a poll up in Oleg's Ready Room (as if he ever bothers to look at it!) on this subject... everyone go vote!

NegativeGee is right, because you don't fly the TB-3, you drive it. Like a truck. With 5 flat tyres. Which is towing a tank.

there are certianly a number of theatres that could be added to the current game engine .. spanish civil war, china, malta and north africa to name just a few

but if the BoB game engine is as much of an improvement as hinted at possibly we are better waitng and getting addons for that instead
