This is the first talk I've heard of an add-on.

Does this mean something like the ace expansion pack?

That would be super.

Could someone please fill me in?

The add-on, a.k.a. the "big patch". For the last few months we've all been waiting for a patch that will include several new aircraft, along with a few new maps. I really don't know much more than that. Their has been talk that we will get the betty, Ki-100, Ju-88, tempest, and maybe the mosquito, along with several others I can't think of right now? But like I said I really don't know. Maybe someone in the know will step in and let us know. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I hope the next patch is 768mb. Really, I do! Seeing as how 3.04 was measured in size, and not content, a nice CD-sized patch should shut some of those whiners up.

Oleg always called it an addon while we insisted on ignoring him and assuming the next "patch" would have this content. Thus the confusion.

CrazyIvan has hinted openly on these boards that the "addon" will be large and include "more that was not promised, than what was promised". Meaning many new things.

I'd say mid February...But that is just a guess.

the dev updates show cockpits for:
the Cw-21
do-335,
fokker DXXI,
J2M3
plus externals (possible AI) for devestator, JIN gekko, B6N Tenzan and the A5M Claude..

added to those mentioned above by Weaver....that makes one hell of a list! well worth the wait

also (http://www.jagdgeschwader53.flugzeugwerk.net/ju88/Index2.htm) looks like there could be multiple Ju88 versions, when just the one would suffice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ,with some externals of the ju-188 as well, jeeze they're spoiling us!

Cockpit for Fokker D.XXI?!?! Where? I would like to see that. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I'm sorry to say this, but D.XXI will be AI only. Nobody wants to make the pit. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

But there will be five different D.XXI versions.

My sources in Russia tell me that not only will the next addon not have any new planes....it will actually have a Trojan program that removes all the present ones that may be trademark or copyright protected....and leaving you with only this model to fly:

Of course, it will be available in both a blue and red version to differientiate nationality.

What should really happen for PF as far as I am concerned is that Luthier should get his act together and deliver. PF is a good start but this thing still is a grossly incomplete product. Just take the US carriers for instance......

The areas that need the most attention is the variety of ships, the somewhat irking inavailability of important airplanes and some of the campaigns are just ludicrously short. Try the US P-40E fighter campaign for instance.....

Having said that, I strickly bought PF to get the European theatre aircrafts that were suppose initially to make it in FB/AEP and that got wrapped up in PF by Luthier. Therefore, in the end, I am waiting for Ju 88 flyable, Do 335, Tempest.....and the Italian planes with hopefully some dynamic campaigns for them, or at least having them integrated as AI into the dynamic campaigns when historically accurate - mind you, a Heavy Zerstorer Ju 88C-6a campaign would be fantastic....so would 1941-1943 Southern Russia Mc 200/Mc 202 Italian fighter campaign......

im trying to think of it this way, their craming more stuff into the patch as possible so the longer we wait the more stuff we get, but thats just me

The "Add-on" for PF will be offered on a bonus CD included with every new copy of 1C:MG's Battle of Britain, thus guaranteeing sales of the new product. Otherwise, IL-2 fans will continue to sit fat, dumb and happy playing the massive FB/AEP/PF product and demanding free upgrades for it even while Oleg worries about seeing a return on his investment to develop BOB.
