Its the next version of this sim - new engine, new fm's, 6dof tir support http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif Theengine in 46 is still based on the original IL2 engine from 2001 and it has gone about as far as it can go.

If the version of 1946 you purchased had a second DVD (some versions only came with one) it has tons of pictures and video as well as some interesting demonstrations of virtual acrobatic flying.

I think you can find a little info and screens atAirwarfare.com (http://airwarfare.com/Sims/IL2BOB/).

Few screens here:

Blasphemy! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Well...it's not exactly done yet...be awhile before it comes out. At least another year I think. Nobody really knows for sure. Possibly. Maybe.

I thought the tour of the cockpits was very telling. Beautiful.

Major changes, I think, will be in the flight model, terrain, weather patterns, etc. Not specifically just the visual stuff. IL-2 looks pretty good on a fast machine as it is.

I think the skins are supposed to be 2048x2048 (FB skins are 1024x1024... IL2 skins were 512x512) and it looks as if there might be some kind of reflection thing going on there.

Both IL-2 and BOB will have Air, Ground, and Planes which will be the same only better. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Battlefield 1942 already has Air, Ground, and Planes. Storm of War is just a rip off of BF 1942.

Take a trip to the German forum and look at those screenshots. You'll understand how detailed BOB will be. Some of those cockpit shots are insane. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

No big difference to IL2, indeed. It still is about planes, primarily. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Pfft, World War Two had air, ground, planes, ships, broads the lot. BF 1942's just a rip off of WWII.

Well duhhhh it's a flight sim. As for no big difference.... you must be blind.... look at the ground textures.... the detail on the aircraft.. inside & out.... Look at the starboard light on that 109 and compare it to what we now have.... Look at the trees.. and the shadows they cast.. Look at the overall color... it looks more realistic to me. As for the FMs and play itself.... I cant comment on it because the sim isnt out yet... but I can say based on the track record from 1C that it will probably be much better and smoother than what we have now.

BF1942... LMAO!!!

The thing about the in-game shots that have been released is they were taken when the game was very much in the alpha phase - still look good though.

Wonder what stage BOB is at now.

Been there done that. One of the many things missing was the WOW factor.
