I can't tell you when.... Probably already very soon (will be officially anounced)

But I can tell you that there are finally 29 (not 20 like officially anounced in the past) new flyable aircraft and 7 AI, 9 campaigns, 4 online campaigns (completely new feature), 33 single missions, 10 coop missions.

It is possible to install over any of FB version.

Witht he release of AEP we also will release free expansion for AEP with several more aircraft: at least 2 flyable and 4 AI.

We did also more protection against theoretically possible online cheaters.

So, finally we have 112 flyables in FB + AEP.
We did for all "missed" in the past important flyable aircraft the complex damage model.
And we have over 150 aircraft in total...

Please name me any other flight sim that has the same amount and equal quality of all planes http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
I'm happy myself.

Will be more later.

Oleg how will the new flyable aircraft affect online dogfight maps? Will it be possible to create maps with the new flyable aircraft available, but those who haven't bought AEP cannot select these new aircraft?

I think you gave the answer to yourself.
I think it will not be possible to choose an aircraft without the AEP Addon.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Now, is there a plane list available somewhere? I'm mainly interested in Curtiss Hawk, Ju 88, Me 110, Fiat G.50 and Gloster Gladiator.

Also, what will happen when, say, we launch a VEF2 mission from Hyperlobbby and people who haven't got the expansion join? Do we need separate lobby rooms for haves and have-nots? Or will Jiri be able to program a new version of Hyperlobby for us which could automatically detect the game version we have installed and prevent us from taking a seat in a game launch slot, if we don't have AEP? If there isn't support for such detection, Jiri can always add an "FB+AEP only" checkbox for the hosts, of course.

ich wollte Sie mal fragen,ob man vielleicht in BoB Abschussmarkierungen am Leitwerk eingef├╝hren k├┬Ânnte, die automatisch nach jeden Eisatz erstellt werden, wirkt originaler.
Nach einem Abschuss in einer Mission von irgendeiner beliebigen Kampagne, wird dieser in der n├┬Ąchsten Mission am Leitwerk angezeigt.

K├┬Ânnte dieser Vorschlag nicht in BoB umgesetzt werden? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I've had this sim on my pc from day one and here we are over a year later and I still look forward to the nights when i can fly for extended sessions with my squad.

The patches and expansions make it like a new/better game with each addition.

You know I love this game so much (I'll be extra happy when we have a Tempest V http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) with so many planes, so many great maps, so many fantastic opportunities...I've been having a blast over the last 2 months learning and using the mission builder. One day I'll release a package of single missions (I find I wander too much to focus on one plane yet) for everyone to play...but yeah...the possibilities that this sim offers are far an above anything I've ever dreamed before. The fact that I can go from Eastern Front to Western Front (and hopefully more maps in the future for this one) and even parts of the Pacific in one game in the click of a button with excellent gameplay, realism, and as many options as I can possibly think of is a total blast.

Also, what will happen when, say, we launch a VEF2 mission from Hyperlobbby and people who haven't got the expansion join? Do we need separate lobby rooms for haves and have-nots? Or will Jiri be able to program a new version of Hyperlobby for us which could _automatically_ detect the game version we have installed and prevent us from taking a seat in a game launch slot, if we don't have AEP? If there isn't support for such detection, Jiri can always add an "FB+AEP only" checkbox for the hosts, of course.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Hawk75 wil be flyable in ... In September-October. Ju-88 - when ready by third party (currently not ready yet) Other listed by you - flyable in AEP.

I think if Jiri will have a time he can make autodetection for AEP.

I can tell as a great secret.... whinings there will be always...

Alwasy will ask give me more and more... But we already gave more than any other sim development team. We area really very tired.
I'm sure that even after final test in AEP there are possible some minor bugs. Its why we still test AEP internally even when it is officially finished.

Yesterday here in our office were engineers from ATI. They pay great atention to the features that we use in their drivers (probably no one team use so much, don't know). So I expect from them the very good and fast drivers soon.

Its your very personal opinion on wich you really has a right.
As for the quality... You are completely wrong. FB was a step forward in quality of modeling comparing to IL-2. AEP is many steps forward.
You just repeat some really stupid words of one post here. But if to be fair with you, you should really think by your own head...
If you yourself think that any other WWII sim is better QUALITY and has more complex and at the same time _working_ code than FB and AEP, then go for this sim. Personally for me it isn't a problem if you think by this way.
You really has a right to think by this way.


PS. If you will sell FB then you will be not able to run AEP.

Oleg, I don't understand why you reply to posts that are obviously made to upset you & others. It bothers me because people that post garbage like that are so few and insignificant, I just hope it doesn't effect your view of our appreciation overall. Posts like the one above are made with no education or valuable criticism, and should simply be ignored.

Almost everybody here feels/knows that FB is far superior to any sim made to date in most aspects, so I wish you wouldn't waste your valuable time responding to ignorant posters as they don't deserve your attention.

Thanks as always, we really do apprecaite everything you and your team have done.

Simply some time peopl don't understand what they have in their hands and how is complex this product comparing to any game in the world... How much forces was spent for this. How much we spend that to satisfy all the interests, if only it is possible. My guys haven't vacations. Me too... etc.

I don't offend. I thinply try to explain some time.

Nothing is perfect. But at least we _try_ to achive close to this thing position.

If only I and my team will be satisfied, then the project will die. But we are not satisfied and make more and more good. And only then we add new aircraft.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Don't worry Oleg, 99% of us, i mean, understand very well your work.

You don't like FB? There is CFS3 waiting for you.......lucky you...

We don't need demo or other, but simple "new" (others is better) addons or sim by Oleg Maddox...nothing else. My Euro are always ready for you Oleg!

Oleg i would like ask you about Arado and "navy" mission. We have battle-ship; why not use them as "an airbase"? Take-off and landing near the ship. Possible mission: recognition, armed recognition, rendevouz with submarine, anti-submarine mission ecc ecc.., with the possibility to be refuelled near a submarine.

Second: could we have also online some triggers in the FMB? For ex. some fighter scrambles when you fly near an enemy airfield? (of course in the multiplayer options)

This has been a great thread!

I think the majority of us are definately amongst the crew that, although we all have our minor criticisms, there is a huge level of respect for what Oleg and his entire team have accomplished. The attempt to make something as historically accurate as possible and then multiply that by over 100 flyable aircraft, realistic maps, weapons, scenarios, spanning almost two fronts in the biggest war ever fought on the face of the planet. Thats impressive!

Oleg is absolutely right...there will always be complaints. Some are legitimate and are spelled out in a careful and considered way...others just demand to have things their way. I'm a big fan of the first (it helps to give Oleg and his team a better idea of what people are thinking) but not of the second. In any case...there will always be some. The rest of us will be having a blast with the new expansion! I can't wait to find out what these new flyables are!

The problem with the internet is there are some people that get up one day and say, " I`ll just go and write something to upset everyonebecause I`m stupid/ jealous/ bored/ want to anger the main man and of course nothing comes back on me".

Of course these kind of people are probably weak spineless cowards who would wet themselves if Oleg just said `boo` to them in real life!

Anyway, Oleg knows that the sensible ones among us think this Sim is great and has an incredible amount of support for it. If we do have complaints we like to make them in a constructive and positive manner.

forgive me for asking this here, this question really doesn't pertain to AEP-
I was wondering if it would be difficult to enable the P-39 to cary US ordnance.
Currently the loadout options seem to be for Soviet FAB only-
would it be difficult?

PS THANK YOU and your crew for all you have given us.
If I were to divide the amount of $$$ I spent on Il2 and FB by the number of hours that it has given me enjoyment, your sim would be the best entertainment value for the money I have EVER spent on ANYTHING. Thanks Oleg-

We changed for all revi ginsight. In the past there was a mistake of one our modeller that had read diameter instead of radius in German blueprints for Revi gunsights. So the circle is now twice greater in size and match right digits.
As for other - we wasn't able to rework all 3D mdoels. It isn't just other texture, that is possible easy to replace. It is 3D details in each model.

BTW, will the FB version in the Gold pack be updated with the latest patches ? Will there be any missions or campaigns using the IL-2I version ? I'd like to see how that interceptor version works.

Sea objects - yes. Ground new objects will be these that are from 1.11.
These pics that you saw with new plans of airfields are from not finished maps. I don't know if they will be finished at the moment becasue the creator is busy by other important work.

Hi all, and first thaks Oleg for taking time to answer our questions more often...
As FAFL Nofiller, I'm French and so interesting in French aircrafts ! I'm so happy that you have planned to make the Curtiss H-75 flyable ! It will be a great plane to fight against Me 109E !
Thanks for doing that, Oleg...
I want add and answer you if you have planned to make the Morane flyable... I think not because I remember that you don't have good references for cockpit... But perhaps it has changed?
But anyway, the Curtiss is so great !
Thanks for it and all the other planes of AEP like Fiats G-50 and CR-42 , Gladiator , IAR 80 and IAR 81 ! Forgotten planes but so beautiful ! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Sorry guys. ITs 4 differant models of the Vb. Its the Vb F clipped and non-clipped, and Vb LF clipped and non-clipped. The main differance between the F and LF is the engine (turbo was shaved on the LF for better low level performance).

Hey, man, you don't talk to Oleg. You listen to him. The man's enlarged my mind. He's a poet-warrior in the classic sense. I mean sometimes he'll, uh, well, you'll say hello to him, right? And he'll just walk right by you, and he won't even notice you. And suddenly he'll grab you, and he'll throw you in a corner, and he'll say do you know that 'if' is the middle word in life? If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, if you can trust yourself when all men doubt you - I mean I'm no, I can't - I'm a little man, I'm a little man, he's, he's a great man.

This isn't the end. The B-25 looks like its nearly finished and Oleg said it would come a bit later. Thats good enough for me. The Ju-88 is still under development...thats also good enough for me. The PBY is a big undertaking for Gibbage and I'm sure he'll get it done because Gibbage is one of those guys who puts his mind to it and makes miracles happen. And someone just started (restarted) the HS129.

Not much to be disapointed about...just to be paitent about. I've been waiting for the Tempest V (my favorite plane of all time) since before I bought the game. I saw the work done over a year ago and was impressed. I hope that the Tempest V is part of that patch coming soon. I went so far as to try and help Alex Voicu (the modeler) with a bit of flight data...I felt I needed to make a minor contrubution if I could (and learned a whole lot from him in the process).

As you can see, I understand that people want certain planes (although I'm sure the argument is that the Tempest V is just another fighter although I don't see it that way). In many cases...they are coming. Support your third party modeler with whatever you can!

A desert map is one thing I also dearly miss.
Even if it is a retextured version of a "full land" dogficht map, it would be good for me.

The other thing I miss heavily is the lack of Typhoon for Normandy ...

And, and, and ...

No questions from me. Just a written thank you to you and your team for the game, updates, and support. You already have my thanks in the form of cash (FB and pre-order of AEP). Love this game and look forward to BoB. My only request is that you keep up the biplane development and, if possible, bring back a more robust "whistling-wind-in-your-hair" sound for open cockpit planes.

Great, we all love Oleg. Now let's stop talking about it and actually like, buy the thing instead of trying to pirate his hard work away from him. I won't knowingly play online with some small person who has a pirated version. Hell, I don't even know if it is possible to do a pirated version. I don't know and I'm not going to find out. All I know is that I've seen some try. They usually come whining over in the technical forum because it's porked ten ways to Sunday! They make me sick! It's not like you're stealing from one of the richest men in the world (Cousin Billy) which would be bad enough. You'd be stealing from the only flight simulation developer out there who time and time again has proven his commitment to giving us a great game that just keeps getting better!

Thank you for info about AEP, we have really appreciated that, as many posted before.

You can bet I will go spend my hardly earned money to get AEP when it comes out....(WHEN? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif)

To LuckyBoy1.
I really do not know where you're living, but have you ever noticed there are countries in the world, where IL2FB+AEP would cost something like quarter of a month salary?And even more? And I am not talking about third-world,just look at Central Europe.I really do not understand why the software here in CZ is sometimes even more expensive then in neighbouring Germany.

I understand people who cannot afford it and find other way to enjoy. They would never bought it anyway, so no loss going on. I am not talking it is right to use software you have not paid for, but that's the deal at the moment.
Only when distributors stop crying about losses they suffer and will start to differ from country to country what can people afford, there will be rapid drop of using counterfeit software IMHO.

We all know that you try to satisfy the maximum of our attempt and satisfy all will take more than a live !

So i think your doing your best and whe say again thank you Oleg !

I would just ask a little question to you Mr Oleg :
We all in french community dream about some French campaign planes to fight in our airspace and reacreate some great fight of this campaign . Do you have any project about?
Yu have may already respond to this question so if it's the case i'm sorry http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Kindest Regards

FAFL_Nofiller<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

in AEP is French Normadie Niema campaign which is created with the great help of French players. There are even French speech of pilots sounding

For BoB we plan again with the help of French community to make add-on "Battle of France", becasue we have already a lot of french ground vechicles for BoB and modellers started to make and accumulate the materials for French aircraft modeling.

Sorry no changes in that item.
Many things that was designed initially can't be changed. Due to problems in other parts of code, including online code and very complex code of recording tracks. We still can't record all the data for example in NTRK format due to these problems and contradiciton of conditions.

Hi all, and first thaks Oleg for taking time to answer our questions more often...
As FAFL Nofiller, I'm French and so interesting in French aircrafts ! I'm so happy that you have planned to make the Curtiss H-75 flyable ! It will be a great plane to fight against Me 109E !
Thanks for doing that, Oleg...
I want add and answer you if you have planned to make the Morane flyable... I think not because I remember that you don't have good references for cockpit... But perhaps it has changed?
But anyway, the Curtiss is so great !
Thanks for it and all the other planes of AEP like Fiats G-50 and CR-42 , Gladiator , IAR 80 and IAR 81 ! Forgotten planes but so beautiful ! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Sorry But Hawk75 isn't flyable. We didn't plan it ourselves due to lack of time and no one modeller doing that.
However you should expect this plane later this year flyable.

Boehoeeeee,

No new flyable bomber like ju88 , HS126 , Pe2 or B-25.
i`m a biht disapointed if german plane list is correct.
Sinds i play Il2 and Il2FB i`m hoping for more plane variation like the great PBY or FW200 that we have seen in il2 center.
Well ok back to dreaming again.

S! I/KG26_Oranje<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
This isn't the end. The B-25 looks like its nearly finished and Oleg said it would come a bit later. Thats good enough for me. The Ju-88 is still under development...thats also good enough for me. The PBY is a big undertaking for Gibbage and I'm sure he'll get it done because Gibbage is one of those guys who puts his mind to it and makes miracles happen. And someone just started (restarted) the HS129.

Not much to be disapointed about...just to be paitent about. I've been waiting for the Tempest V (my favorite plane of all time) since before I bought the game. I saw the work done over a year ago and was impressed. I hope that the Tempest V is part of that patch coming soon. I went so far as to try and help Alex Voicu (the modeler) with a bit of flight data...I felt I needed to make a minor contrubution if I could (and learned a whole lot from him in the process).

As you can see, I understand that people want certain planes (although I'm sure the argument is that the Tempest V is just another fighter although I don't see it that way). In many cases...they are coming. Support your third party modeler with whatever you can!

Hi again. As i said already thanks for the update and nice to see you back in the forums Oleg
Now that you're here I'd have one more question:

Is there any chance that we might see a desert map for FB or later as a BoB add on one day? doesn't really matter which size. at least a df map or a small one like the ardennes map? I'm just asking because I saw couple of nice desert skins at il2skins. would be nice to use them somewhere.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Desert after BoB 100%
Currently we are very buys with Channel map. It will be the most complex map we ever created...
Step by step I will post screen shots from time to time.

DF desert map... I will ask if we have such textures....<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Another one for Oleg: What happened to the FW-200??? Kami told us it would never become flyable in FB http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif . If this is right, why?? I think he did a great job with the cockpit and all those turrets http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif .<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

We decided to go for better quality for BoB. And Kami agree.
Really the models looks good, but still need large work over it. Its tow hard work currently for Kami and _we_ have not time to correct too much. So at the moment he makes models for Pacific http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Currently we are working with Lex carrier for example - that is large work that to make aerofinisher, lifts, etc.... If I'm not wrong with nickname Kami, he did this carrier http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

For future, as I told we will take only right made models. We now can't spend the time to rework from 50% to 100%.... Yes some time 100%.

eh..........10+ flyables in the add on directly after the release?? Including 3 models of spit????? And 4 models of B-25 AI??

The 75mm gun version is the B-25G.

Roughly when will the B-25s be flyable?? Around the month of May, June, July, August?? And which models will we have? In the development updates I think I saw the B-25C/G/J glassnose/J strafer models. Will these be the models? And will the J have the ability to carry rockets? The J model with the US Marines in the Pacific had racks for 8 HVAR "Tiny Tim" rockets.

I am becoming far more enthused about this as time passes.

FB rocks!!

P.S.- Will the Ju-88 being developed include the zerstorer version?? I ask because if the allies are to receive these B-25s with their immense armament, I think the Axis would need something to counter it, like the Ju-88 which was kitted out in a similar manner to the B-25 strafer models.

Excellent point. I've done some MOD managing work for other games and I certainly know that putting together a model for a game means that you have to make it work for the engine specifically.

100% it will be stnad alone.
I know your question then... Will be there all the planes from FB+AEP.

Answer - don't know yet. It will be then 3-4 CD simulator. And should cost more already just becasue of production expences.

I try to talk to Ubi Soft about it. But at the moment it isn't decided yet.
Sure we can't make all the time just add-ons. This limit us in some technologies and to be honest - profit (if is in general)

I completely agree on the Ta152C, both variants will rock. thanks soooo much for including the H and soon the C.

Anyone who likes the Ta152 is good in my book http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


Thanks again!

When you say: "Currently we are working with Lex carrier for example" you speak about LEXINGTON CARRIER?

I'm right? If yes......we could take-off and land on carriers?

Hi, Oleg.

Could you add some logging information when a ground object (from the FMB) is placed; such as a building, bridge, etc. by its object number?

Its not easy. For this we need special idetificators for each object in a code that to make it visible for ground targets code.
I already asked programmers and they said that it isn't easy due to many other cross functions.

A nice feature for the FMB would be a "undo/redo"-function (didn't find one, yet).

What about doing like the helo sim "enemy engaged: apache-havoc"? When the follow-on (comanche-hokum) came out, if it found the old sim in the HD copied the relevant information for planes, maps into itself so that you could use the old stuff.

Or you could make it installable on top of the original FB as an alternative to installing it as a standalone product..

I know you already know about these possibilities but please don't discard them!

Oleg, if it hasn't been mentioned before, I would also like to thank you and team for the great objects in FB. We all emphasize the aircraft here, and should, but the armor, land vehicles and naval vessels in patch 1.21 and now for AEP show some serious work too. Makes me feel that 1C:Maddox should go into the land and naval sim business also http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thanks for sending that mail to Alex, The Tempest is the one aircraft I cannot wait to fly, and it would be tragic if it missed FB. From what I've seen the external model and Cockpit are first class work, is the cockpit being worked on by the same guy that built the Gladiator cockpit.

As we are getting more twin-engined aircraft I have a question.
Will there be a control feature that allows you to use two throttles at the same time?
At present to control two engines you have to switch between engines to change settings.
It would be nice to be able to use a throttle quadrant, other games allow it and several are available.
Looking foward to AEP.

We plan to change the difficulty setting screen in the pacific sim.
With AEP as add-on it is simply too hard to change. It looks like what was in IL-2 and what was added in FB in these terms.
So I would say no for AEP and Yes for Pacific.
Of course If I understand you correct.

But two throttles (or even more) is possible to use in FB. You may select there each engine or all in control.

bah thats sad, i would like to have all in the same game, u know like at greater green server we fly estalingrad map, then we fly a kuban map, then pacific map, and all wiht diferent sets of planes, it varies alot and u never get bored, but if the pacific stand alone would have all planes we have now plus the ones lutier is doing, it would have to have the maps we got now and the campains if not european planes flying on pacific map doesnt sound atractive....

What about SaQSoN project? shuldnt lutier and saqson guys join efforst to bring the pacific to live agaiin wiht as many fronts as posible? and more features and planes, ships, ground units....

SaQSoN already make something for Pacific.
Say for example 3 modifications of Ki-61 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif and now makes the cockpits for them.

SaQSoN own project (he is licensed by us developer) would be more poular in Russia... Howevere I'm agree that all in one would be absolutly cool. At least for me.

The same I plan beginnig with the bob... But there we will use a bit other concept.

All this is giving me goose bumps... it would be nice if everything that came out up to BoB could be accessed from one point...FB... even if you had to buy each product seperately initially. Will tyhe graphics & physics engines be that different.? (In the pre BoB releases I mean.. I know BoB will be totally new.... but the others..the Pacific thing and the ones after AE1..) Its nice to see ATI finallycoming in to get first hand knowlege of the FB engine too... this can only make my 9800Pro smile.....
