Don't know if this been discussed and how many times but with 4.04m patch and the Complete Edition out, is this it for the IL-2 series or do you still expect something to come out?

Probably most work is not spent on BoB. Any official info about release date, screenshots or anything out yet?

Official ones too?

I'll still have lots of fun with what I've got. Actually the only thing I'm really waiting BoB for is the 6DOF for TrackIR http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A Spitfire MkXIV would complete it for me, that is all i want personally. But it aint gona happen so i guess that it will never be complete for me. Thats not to say i will sure as **** appreciate anything else that comes out, this game/sim is the best!

heres a question - Are we still testing BoB FM's?

Is that still going on?...

As each of these addons are released - are they also to include FM tweaks for us to beta test??

or is that done with and the only changes to be seen on these addon c/d's is the new planes and maps and campaigns etc....(only changes...thats funny) but you know what I mean.

Hmmmm? are we still beta testers? or no.

When the FM settles long enough for people to get really good, then the fun starts.

Heywood, we don't have the full BoB FM's because these plane models don't have mass
of each part in their data. BoB FM's should be better.

Call me a hopeless optimist if you must but I believe that we WILL see a Korean War version of IL2 if not this year then next. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

There is just too much potential in this game engine to just abandon it.

AFAIC FB (In my mind FB is the whole package..) while absolutely without a doubt the premier WWII combat sim... the greatest EVER thusfar in my opinion anyway....will always be missing something as long as there are no flyable torp bombers and no flyable B-17. IMO these planes would round out the sim better than any of the other planes we are getting.. even though the ones we are getting are great to have and Im lovin it all.

I agree, BC. Things can always be added.

Flight models will never be perfect and new data can always be found, FM's tweaked, new effects added. I think a good sim NEEDS to be constantly updated.

If we had a pilot who had flown every WW2 plane in combat, and performed every manouvre possible writing the game, then OK I guess we could get pretty close to real FlightModels first time.

However this is not possible, there is no such prson. Anyone trying to create a WW2 sim will ALWAYS be finding new things out as they read pilot accounts, find new docs, take flights in restored WW2 planes, examine data, filtering out what is opinons and what is fact, try different ideas for flight effects to make things more realistic, and much much more.

It can never be perfect, its can however be constantly tweaked to get it closer to perfect than it was before.

Still need the following addon packs...

"Su-2"

"Tu-2"

"Me-2(10)"

"Do-2(17)"

"U-2" (or "Po-2" for Region 1 DVD)

"SB" ... call it "SB-2" for Region 2 DVD

SU-2's went gold what about th others:
Does that mean an add-on every 3-4 months tho?

You are assuming it is possible to get so close on a PC with everything else going on at what
framerate?

Also I hope that pilot is also a genius programmer and PhD aero engineer.

That was my point.

I totally agree, its not even possible to get a totally accurate WW2 sim with todays computers, even if such a guy existed.

And all those Fairey Battles, Stringbags and other RN planes as the US-ones are no-no. Planes for early WW2 in europe too would be nice as addons.

Not been paying attention to the news? Three small cheap addon packages to be sold in the near future. Pe-2 Peska fearturing all Pe-2 and Pe-3 as flyable as well as the IL-10 Manchuria addon with 5 or more new flyables and new maps as well as the VVS 46 addon package and probably one more addon pack with Ian Boys new maps.

Not done yet...just coming slowly.

Free addons might be more than one, and they'll include a big bunch of new planes too, besides maps. This, I've gathered reading Oleg and SaSQoN's posts around the Net.

The Manchuria/Il-10 add-on will complete the game for me (as much as possible anyway with no carrier torpedo planes) with the shiden, Ki-27 and ki-43-II. I'd support any add-on afterward, such as vvs46, but they don't excite me.

A korean add-on will wake me up if it has the F4U-4, F4U-5 and some of the gorgeous early USN jets (banshee, phantom)

(I would mention the best of them all: F9F Panther...but we know who built THAT one)
