Can anyone who knows anything about the development of the upcoming BoB please share some information?
Why is it so extremly litle information slipping out on this project?
I would like to see some new screenshots.. And an estimated releasdate..
I've heard that the flightmodels intended used for BoB is implemented in the 4.0 version of PF. Can anyone confirm this?

the silence ?

its because its ages away

back at the start of 2004 there was no PF incoming , it was AEP & the finalisation patches for FB:AEP

the date that BoB was to be expected that was mentioned back then was mid 2005 !

There are no news because there is another BoB sim about to come on the market (BoB II- Wings of Victory), and it is not wise to advertise features that could "inspire" last minute changes on the rival's product.

As aronautica pointed out above

Quote from Oleg this february:

With the BoB all information at the moment is secret. We don't publish especially that to do not show some new ideas and quality of the product before some others will not release their own products. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Just remeber and take in acount that we create the basis for the new flight sim series where everything will be of standards for the next 5-7 years quality http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif We plan to make great series of many fronts... with the feature to merge them all in future like we did as the first attempt with the Il-2 series as a sample and that to evaluate the market need for such an option...

BoB probably won't ship until xmas 2006 maybe 1 / 2nd qtr 2007. Releasing info at this point is useless since everything is bound to change. I remember seeing some alpha screen shots for the original Il2 and the final product looked nothing like those. I wouldn't expect any reall juicy stuff to come out until about 6 months before the release which means it will be totally covert ops until mid to late 2006.

And I think Oleg said the new FM in the PF 4.0 patch will be to test the FM for BoB, not neccessarily be the FM for BoB. I'd look at it as being (for us at least) a BoB demo and its likely that fewer features will be implemented in the PF version than in the final BoB version. Anyway, they're interested in seeing how well some of their ideas will work in practicality I suppose.

Not only that, it appears to be only a partial test of some of it's features. i.e. we won't get a BoB FM, but some aspects of it in 4.0.

OK guys, thanks for the info.
Not the answers I had hoped for, but... patience is regrettably not one of my virtues!
On the brighter side; I've ordered Silent Hunter III, and I guess that will raise my spirits while waiting for 4.0 and Bob.

Based on the time it takes to produce one stinkin' patch, that's what.
