SIlly perhaps to think it's a nice touch.......

Yet being able to fit all the CDs for IL2FB/AEP/PF and their manuals in the same box plus room for one more disk (self written containing patches/skins/utilities etc.)...

Is a nice touch.

All in one place, well protected....Nice job Ubi/1C marketing/packaging guys. Little details make the difference.

I too like the big box. The two cds touching doesnt really suit me well but having all that room to put all my user defined key commands (in case I lose them somehow) and other things I find to be helpful really makes up for it I think.

Tip: For those of you who also do not feel comfortable with the cds touching like that, do what I do. If you buy a 50 pack of blank cds there will most likely be a clear plastic "fake" cd somewhere in the stack. I place those between my PF cds and it makes me feel a little better. At least they are not touching the shiny side to the painted side.

I also like the large box/case.

Hmmm...I hate the box, because of the way the CDs are retained inside it. CDs can break, I have cracked a CD, and a DVD actually, because they were initially hard to remove from the packaging. The CD continued to work, the DVD was ruined. So I cursed that split retainer when I saw it. The last thing I needed was to search for PF for so long and then break the d@mn thing

So that's why the US got PF late? In the UK we got a flat case - room for 2 CDs and no more.
Cheers!

Good thread,my thought was to possibly use a blank cd as a pattern to cut out a lose fitting disc out of very thin clear plastic.
I to have always hated those split retainers that make you pry the disc out while trying to hold at least two of the retaining sections together.Its why i bought a cd wallet.

Very good post Billfish. Too bad people still find something to b1tch about though...incredible!

I also thought it was a very nice touch. Anyone who has a problem with a very simple split plastic retaining post and no patience to actually figure out how it works, probably shouldnt be flying aircraft, simulated or not. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Just a little ribbing folks.......go easy! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well to be honest my disc will probably spend its whole life in the little sliddy drawer anyhow...er leastwise until the release of BoB!!

Note to self>>> File down the top of the CD spindel so that the cd's are easier to remove lol.

I knew there was a reason I purchased some "CD cases" in five packs. That split case is a joke.

The good ole standard plastic CD case or maybe allso known as "Jewell Case" and a metal ( as I have ) or plastic CD rack which will hold 20/30 CD's or even DVD's. Secure the CD/DVD rack next to your puter and your all set. No paper CD sleeves or in this case a split plastic case that can ( and most likely will ) damage you CD/CD's. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif
Sure is nice to have scratches on you CD's, http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif Yeah right. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I doubt it was meant as a nice touch, more like cheapo bulk-boxes.

I appear to have a different case too, CD's are easy to remove but there're only clip for two of them, one in each cover.

"If you buy a 50 pack of blank cds there will most likely be a clear plastic "fake" cd somewhere in the stack"


There is also that foam "donut" and the white plastic ring as well in the 50 and 100 packs of CD's.

Great idea to seperate the 2 CD's in this stacked case.

The clear CD's do scratch the surface (the most important part of a CD/DVD-ROM). To better prolong a CD/DVD's life get a non abbresive material/cloth to put between them or a rubber spacer that also comes 'free' in a CD and/or DVD spindle! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
