No new maps or models (i.e. B-17) are included. It's a bit strange though - I mean, if I was going to release a sampler, I'd at least include tracks of the new planes!

Also, I noted that the new release will include: "a speech pack to convert Russian and German to English." Does this mean that there will be no RAF/Commonwealth speech pack? If so - for shame! But I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I might be misunderstanding but i thought the raf/commonwealth was being done as a fan based undertaking, and released as such

I honestly have no idea. I just wanted to register my vote for an accurate Commonwealth voice-pack. A Canadian one would be even better! :-)

After eating an entire bull, a mountain
lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a
hunter came along and shot him...
The moral: when you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.

I smell something very fishy going on here & it aint' my ex wife either. I think this is the same kinda crap being pededled out like that barbarosa campain pack that's being sold 3rd party on the net. Wich is total BS. I'm sure that these *******es got the skins from Il-2 Skins.com & thats all it is (more than likely) is a few skins & some missions. IT IS NOT AN OFFICAL ADD ON FOR FB. If you notice their B-17 is really a Pe-8 in a b-17 painted skin. that's all. save your cash guys...this thing is junk. Wait for Oleg & 1C to release the real add on.

ANybody try the ME262 campaign on the sampler mission pack? It seems to freeze before it even gets to briefing screen for me.

I'm inclined to suspect what Copperhead says is true,this is not related to any official add-on, it is simply a collection of 3rd party created missions and skins, with maybe a few custom config files for the dynamic campaign.

Any official announcements will have Oleg, Thunak or a moderator's name in red as the author of the thread.

Right Tully.
But here's an exapmle of how this thing can go wrong for the consumers. Lot's of times if we're out shoping or on the net & have extra money to spend we see something we like & go "HMmmm cool i like that ...i'll buy it." And a lot of times not pay attention to the small print on the box. then you get it home & guess what..."Batteries not included"
this happend with one of the new guys in our squad. he bought the babrbarossa "Expantion pack" before he bought FB. wasn't till latter after he got it that he realized that he'd gotten screwed. So then he has to go & buy FB.
True enough it's partialy his own fault for not paying better attention. I dont like these kinds of 3rd party add ons. for one reason it's making money off some one else hard work & investment. 2nd it confuses the consumers.
I wish that Oleg/ 1C:Maddox & or UBI would stop this kind of thing. I dont believe that they have a right (leagal or other wise) to sell this stuff. I mean it is Coppywrited softwear. Unless it is explictly supported by & authorized/endorsed by 1C:Maddox & or UBI Soft i wouldn't waste my money. Now from what i Understand from reading Ian Boys is that one of the upcomming pay add ons (battle over Europe) is going to be a 3rd party deal...but that is to be supported by the 1C:Maddox team Now that's where you would want to spend your money. I belive that unless Oleg supports it no 3rd party expanstion pack type sales should be permitted. If you remeber correctly in Old Il-2 you used to could take missions from your net cach & play them. No longer. & i suspect that it's due to copyright issiues as a result of the Opperation Barbosa pack.

Lighten up. Its a game, not a lifestyle.

Lots of us enjoy the add-ons. If 1C could produce these products in a timely manner, we'd buy the stuff from them.
