So here's the pitch. If 1C were to construct a PAY add-on including 3 or 4 maps of the Western New Guinea and the Solomons and some new flyable a/c - i.e. early B-25, George variants, some later Ja. light bombers - plus some barges, PT boats, etc, would you guys buy it???

Would there be flyable single engine torpedoe planes in this add-on? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Seems to me this was discussed before. If the add-on was well done, good maps, some new flyable aircraft, I'd be interested. I think I said the same thing before.

I would have no probs paying $70-00 to $80-00 Aus. Heck, I paid that for AEP.

Only prob is that everybody has to go for it or it splits up the version match online.

I'd pay for 6dof...
Cockpits modeled so well that the HUD is completely unecessary (CHT gauges and ALL gauges that work exactly right, etc)....
All FM's updated so that they better reflect actual performance...

No extras, no new planes, no new maps, nothing like that, just polish off what is already done.....I seriously WOULD pay for this. I'd pay the price of the sim to have it polished off.

Yes but Oleg would have to give us at least one US Navy Torpedo Bomber. Just call it a TB2 or something so the scum lawyer slu*ts can't file a lawsuit. Also would like to see a later Oscar, Nick, George and IJAF light and medium bombers. As the Betty is tougher then a B-17 as it is now. Also would like the 1 BB hit on the P-40's fixed. Then I would gladly pay the going PC game price of $49.00

He can call it a TBF or a TBM all he likes. The USN designator is not a trademark. The Dougals TBM Avenger on the other hand contains a company name and is a trademark. Look on the back of your Pacific Fighters box...trademark infringements galore. This is what happened...the rest is some rumor mill churning stuff up.

Thus reception for future American fighters has been cool. I think its warming again.

I'd pay for a South Pacific addon for sure...it'd need a bunch of things like an earlier P-38 model and so on but it'd be a good thing in my books.

I would pay for one, Pacific fighters needeed alot of work to bring it up to the Forgotten Battles standard. A lot of work has been done by third party to improve the DGEN single player campaigns, TruePacific by Nimits is brilliant. I for one want more flyable japanese fighters, if the N1K1 & N1K2J were flyable I would probably be satisfied (but they arn`t, YET)

I think there is a possibility of 3 more pay addons to IL2, the next one will be a PE2 addon, & depending on how sales go for this then a Manchuria PF addon will come out as well as a "what if" 1946 addon. I think these are all scheduled for Russian release but who knows if we see these on the Western market.

I for one will buy all 3

Well, here's my theory. Apparently, BoB is delayed for another year at least past it's scheduled issue date. And it's going to concentrate on the ETO. If Oleg and Co. need an incentive to substantially increment PF, why don't we give him one in the form of $$$? The mid period PTO is a big gap in the game now and the most obvious "fix". (I hear that the MTO is going to be on the BoB agenda and will not be featured in FB.)

I would pay but only to support the franchise. I have absolutely no interest in the pacific theatre, never have and probably never will.

If I can shell out a few bucks to keep Maddox/1C in business and watch my fellow simmers get planes they think are really cool, then I'd definately do it as long as it didn't split the community by different game versions.

You just won't see me flying any pacific related aircraft, not my cup of chai.

I'd pay for anything. There is a lot of free patches and new planes, but there is a hole in Pacific (perhaps our pilots were on holidays in 1943-44). Seriously, I'm very grateful for Oleg & Co. and i'd pay it.

Nope, not interested. I would only pay for new Russian and RAF aircraft/scenery plus flyable B-17/B-24. The Pacific theatre just never grabbed my interest for some reason.

I'd be willing to shell out some cash for another add-on, or even add-ons. I'll gladly support 1C even if the aircraft, maps, or objects don't interest me, as long as everyone is happy (I plan on buying the Pe-2 add-on and rumored platinum pack).

Yeah, pretty much what TX-Zen said, except I like the PTO better than the ETO.

I'll buy anything that is produced for this game...but I do think its time for them to move on from development of this game and get on with getting Battle of Britain produced and out the door as soon as possible.
A new game from the ground up will hopefully address some of the basic issues with the game and the focus on a smaller number of flyable will hopefully make it much more realistic!
Bring it on!

However and although I prefer the Eastern Front, I would be willing to pay for any additional aircraft/maps that were introduced BUT only if these add-ons didn't prohibit members without it to play. For example, if there was a "4.05" patch that introduced additional aircraft I wouldn't want those with 4.04 to not be able to play on a 4.05-enabled server. They just wouldn't have the new planes available. This would make purchase of the patch entirely voluntary for those who wanted it yet not exclude those who don't.

They swung wildly back and forth from patch to patch to patch all the way up til now.

Also other would be nice, like Ki-48, Ki-44, D3A2 or Ki-45 (not a bomber but 1700 made makes it LEAST as important as Ki-46 we have as AI) AND... ...dear god give IJA a fighter... Ki-43-II... about 5000 WERE MADE!

I just meant that there are no Japanese 1943-1945 bomber as flyable or AI in this game called PACIFIC FIGHTERS! Hmm, if the game is PACIFIC FIGHTERS, why on earth you cannot fly the most important Imperial Japanese Army fighter of WWII, the Ki-43-II?

Maybe I should have posted this directly to Oleg two years ago. Now I too think it's too late.
