Hi, I was just wondering, is Battle of Britain going to stack on top of the installs of FB AEP and PF? Will there be an option for a combined install, where the planes from all the games will be available in BoB? Also does anyone know a rough release date for BoB? Gamespot indicates somtime in May, is this correct?

May is HIGHLY unlikely, unless they mean May 2006.

BoB will have a new engine, new physics and new standards for nodeling objects, planes and cockpits. As far as we know it will not be backwards compatiable at all.

BoB is a new porduct, not an expansion or continuation of the (honoured and venerable) IL2 line.

No. BoB will be a new game, not mergable with existing titles.

It's not coming out in May. AFAIK it's late 2005 or 2006.

Gah, you beat me :P

Guys, BoB will be in BETA late 2006 at the earliest! Don't expect it earlier than sometimes in 2007. Oleg's words.

Like a Bowling Ball stacked on a non~IBM keyboard, BoB will crush the other games.

Yes, basically, Patch 4.0 will be Tested and Improved again until it becomes 2006 BoB 1.0. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Does anybody know if Oleg will create other campaigns that will merge with BOB? Such as an all new Russian front Perhaps?

This is my general plan:

BoB, then after BoB Africa then something new (don't know yet)

We will use successfull attempt with PF...
1) Releasing BoB.
2. Released Africa as stand alon and with possibility to merge with BoB.
3. releasing new stand alone theater say X, with the possibility to merge with BoB + Africa + X
4. etc. Including European, Russian front and Pacific, but before will be several titles.

Finally we will get even more than in Il-2 series amount, quality, etc..

Such method will help me to be alive for a long time. You know that currently we are almost alone on the market... niche is too small.
But I dislike to go on consoles and name it simulators..

BoB and then an African theater will appeal to a wide demographic.
I Know plenty who'll be extra pleased at the African theater, especially here in Australia. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

So is the BoB engine cycle aimed at a lifespan of about 7 years?

Thanks and cheers

You were alone in the market from day one..... even though there were other flight games out.. IMO the only WW2 Combat Flight Simulator ever has been this series. I didnt know what a flight sim was till I got IL2. I hope that BoB is a fully mergable product on all fronts..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Great news. Like PF, if I can only get it on the second day of release - it will be a tragedy.

I know that the online 56RAF squadron will look forward to yet another way of giving those 109's a bloody nose followed by an afternoon cup of tea http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Everything sounds good from Oleg. I just wish he had some guess at a date. It was originally 2005. Has it really moved to 2007?

Oleg, by "Africa", can we assume you mean Mediteranian? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif If so, is there a possibility of seeing any carrier operations modeled by then, or will we have to wait for a "Pacific" addon?

I`d be somewhat happier if BoB didn`t include an "Ubi" on it.

The Starforce thing.If what ppl say is true then it may diqualify me as a customer.I will buy BoB but if I see big problems with my PC I`m giving the game back no matter how good BoB is.

I`ll be hoping that some other way for this player niche will be found.

Oh and I`m starting to wonder what is to do if BoB comes out in 2007.That is two years.Given that v4.0 is the last one I might hold on until fall 2006.Looks like 2006 isn`t gonna be the best year for this sim.

With BOB, is it possible we may have Battle of France addon someday ?

With french planes like D-520, H75, Breguet etc .... ?

I dont know many games which modelizes this period, that would be interesting.
