Will this be in ANY way comatible with FB? It obviously uses the same graphics engine . . . Is this stand alone only, or can it be installed as an addon to FB as well, bringing FB to a new version? If this is capable of being both, then I think that we have something that has never been done before with any game . . . ever.

edit: I'd like to hear something official, and not conjecture.

Oleg said a while back over at Netwings that the idea is to make it capable of both. I guess we'll have to wait and see. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Necrobaron, You are once again the voice of reason. I think that perhaps my "I want official word" comment was a bit away from what I actually mean . . . I want others to post to the thread, but would like references like yours to sources that we at least consider to be informed.

Only time will tell... Either way, this game may just be the best of the IL2 series. Can you imagine online campaigns based on say operation watchtower? This is just the first day of official information lets not jump the gun like I did here:

We have plenty of time to get all of the details of this potentially awesome sim.

Ha ha! (Laughing with you, not at you, Talus.) I will love this, no matter what. It's no big deal for me to have another icon on my desktop if I have to. Just a little superfluous, don't you think? Also, I'd simply love to see the B-25's in FB if (when) I buy Pacific Fighters.

What necrobaron said.

Additionally, it HAS been done before, at least with the Enemy Engaged series of chopper sims.

First of all, I highly recommend for you NOT to take at heart everything you hear from somebody working on the project. I have never given Gibbage detailed project plans and feature lists, and very few people besides myself, Oleg and Ubi top brass are fully aware of everything that we're going to have in this project. Please, if it doesn't come directly from the people running the project, just take it with a grain of salt

Now, the project is a giant undertaking. We're doing over a dozen large maps with nearly a hundred new building types, many dozens new ground vehicles for four different countries, a very long list of ship classes with several ships often modeled in a class, and certainly way more than 10 NEW flyable aircraft, plus a very large number of applicable flyable and AI aircraft carried over from FB.

Why you guys started running around with 10 flyable aircraft is beyond me, since the official announcement clearly lists the number of flyables as "over 40".

So, anyone believing that this project should be an add-on as opposed to a stand-alone product needs a serious reality check.

And before you begin to run around with your hair on fire and worry about splitting the community, whoever said that we're going to do such a thing? Nothing has been decided yet to the best of my knowledge. The only thing I can say at this point that the two products will be fully compatible and there's no technical limitations in the engine that would prevent a Bf-109 from flying over Iwo Jima or an Aichi Val over Leningrad.

That answered all my questions so far....... hope it answers yours.
