Hi all,

I haven't purchased PF yet and I am concerned because I repeatedly see people saying they are done until a new patch comes out.

There doesn't seem to be a general consensus, but I don't want to spend the $$ only to wish I hadn't.

Also, how playable are the Air to Ground missions in PF? Can you make a viable career out of Air to Ground?

Thanks

Do you have IL2:Forgotten battles and Aces already?
If not, wait with PF, but get those first. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

If you do have IL2:Forgotten Battles and Aces, get PF.

Ofcourse, in both cases you'll eventually will get PF, so yes, get it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
And the patch is gonna be great! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Oh yes, and there's plenty of planes which allow you to make Air to Ground a full time job. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Ppl are telling that about the patch because they`re spoiled brats!One might think the game has so many bugs that only this patch will make it playable.Not true.The game has been nicely fixed 4 months ago with 3.04 and 4.0 will just add some crisps.


You can easily go for it.No danger here.

Yep, Carguy and bearcat and the others are right. The complaints of people being `done with it` are the vocal minority who are experts at shouting over everyone else. Please remember that contented/ happy people post less than those who`re disgruntled. You also need to look at the [I]type[\I] which can range from ultra picky flight model complaints to `where`s this particular ordnance` complaint.

Also a lot of Pacific Fighter complainers seem to come from either the console `fly and blast` or from the CFS crowd who seem to be used to their aircraft shooting anything out of the sky whenever they want.

IL2/ PF/ FB is a much more realistic simulation that TEACHES you how to fly and how to FIGHT. Don`t shoot the air around a plane, actually hit that wingtip, that cockpit, that engine! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif A lot of new guys aren`t use to this level of realism and rather than see where they may be wrong would rather blame the tool.

PF/IL2 are the best sims out and 4.0 (out in about a week) should flesh PF out nicely. Just give a little time in learning your take offs and landing.

The water looks great on perfect settings fer shur. Saw a screenshot lately with very calm water and lots of reflections. All I've seen in game is waves. Not complaining it still looks great.

By the way, how did the trolls miss this thread? Mods must swinging a bigger ban hammer. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Get it. With PF you can do a merged install right into FB/AEP. With all three of them installed together it is pretty amazing how many aircraft there are and how many scenarios can be created/recreated. I never thought I would see this in a flight sim, what Oleg and crew pulled off is a minor miracle IMO. Not to mention the fact that the Pacific can be a nice change of pace. Planes like the Corsair and Ki-61 Tony are great to fly and carrier operations add a new twist that is challenging and enjoyable. I don't think you'll regret buying PF at all, and the upcoming patch should be very good.

the price has just been cut in half for PF at electronic boutique in the US...so I assume its the same most other places.

you can thank me for that....I had spent $40 not 2 weeks before that, so thats the reason it went down.

Ive single handedly ended droughts by washing my car before. THey should do a series on the Sci-Fi channel about me.
