E3 is only a US expo now, not an international, but GDC might have some news: http://www.gcdc.eu/

I wish that were so. I have seen several times before where there was news to be found, but it was found elsewhere.

We were told to expect some kind of news AFTER E3 if I remember correctly. I don't think they meant weeks or months after either, but then again I would not be surprised. They will give us news when they are ready but they must surely have some little tidbit that they can give us at this point. We have all been waiting a long time (Since the '46 release) for something new.

As mentioned above, Oleg took some vacation time.. he should be back this week, leave rest up to me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I will try to get something going. Keep in mind, that it is not only up to Oleg when it comes to updates, multiple parties involved.. but he is still main figure in the PR process IMO.

I like this bit:
'I also asked about SOW:BOB. Since I know the status of it already I wanted to see what he would tell me. A Russian dude chimed in to tell me all is well, but there is no release date yet. So, expect it later in 2008 Oleg fans.'

Thanks for the link. Looks like Luthier is talking to the wrong people.I don`t understand the wish to make SOW a little more complicated WWIIOL.

THese are separate types of games.I take it as a initiative that might endanger the specific character of the sim.I couldn`t care less if I have a pilot in the cockpit or I am able to walk around get in/get out of the plane. The highest priority should be resembling the planes as the machines as complicated as it can be.The AIRCRAFT must be in the very center of the game.I am waiting for FM,DM,cockpit modelling to be far more complicated but far more accurate aswell.

A lot of effort might get wasted on features that real hardcore sim fans are not interested in.

+1 My biggest fear in BoB is that TOO much unimportant details will end up watering down the sim.

I really like IL2 1946. There ARE issues with AI, and I'd rather have them fixed or rewritten from scratch in BoB to have them the best they can be, than to have a BF1942 type game......

Considering the last 24h of posts and threads that has been deleted: Is it now more or less official that we won't get any info or updates on this forum in the forseeable (read 3-4 months) future?
And does anyone know where to find info on this Korea sim that appearently is going to use the SoW:BoB-engine?

To me the "com blackout" is just signifying that the release date of Q4/2007 which was floating around has no substance (anymore). Apparently we've got to focus on a release sometime in 2008. But that's fine by me. More dev time for the team might allow them to flesh out the substance a bit better.

On the other hand I can understand Ubisoft's reluctance to release anything ATM - to a certain degree. They invested money in this project and want it to be commercially successful.
But knowing Ubi's past "mis-performance" PR-wise with the Il-2 line I have my doubts if they can come up with a decent PR campaign which isn't cloned from one of their FPS PR campaigns. On the other hand the PR guys did show some promising signs with the Silent Hunter ads and PR campaign ... I guess I'll just wait and see. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Bakelit
08-02-2007, 05:31 AM
Ditto on csThor. I don't think we see the sim before easter 2008, rather later.

But this has the good facet that the developers have more time to perfect the engine. Remember that it has to serve for some years and needs to be stable and adaptive for expansions in all directions.

Can't afford a new machine anytime soon, so its okay with me. I would however like to see a monthly update at least with a few nice pics ...

I don`t understand the mindset.I mean if you see something bad happening you let it be until the full consequences pop out?
From my POV it is perfectly sensible that they want to make SOW applyable to wider public but the real simmers might get forgotten for this reason.We could get too much stuff that has to be worked upon, irrelevant to the whole aircraft stuff but implemented in the game.Real simmers have their interest in making this SIM happening for real and SHOULD complain that some things are going the wrong way.

GTR2 is a nice example.When the simbin was making it,they dumbed down the driving to make more carbon fans buy the game..Finally the community didn`t fail and popped out a more realistic driving model,resolving the problem.

This can`t be done in SOW as Oleg already said that ,online, stuff will be all the same for everyone.
