    Added theaters are entered.. initially I was thinking probably at least a year... but then I got to thinking that considering the plane set... perhaps sooner.

    I'd bet on your first estimate

    Yea that would be really great to know although i understand they might be very busy at the moment since the COD release date is nearing

    This said , it's perhaps wishful thinking , but i'd really love to see a Pacific add-on as the first one , with the new engine's potential , carrier ops could be awesome .

    I realize it would be a huge load of work because they would have to model all the ships in a much more detailed way than it is in IL-2 , but on the other hand , the maps would take them less time to complete since most maps would contain a lot of ocean/water area

    Otherwise , i'd like the Eastern front back ASAP if we don't get the Pacific . But i have a feeling it will be the Mediteranean front because it takes less work , Eastern front in COD would be a huge project seeing the number of planes and detailed maps (with cities , lots of objects etc.. ) they would have to make .

    Rommels foray to Tripoli or maybe even greece/crete campaign makes sense to me, followed by Barbarossa, you americans are being punished 60 years late for entering at a later stage! Im sure if the USA knew it would effect your entry into COD they would of jumped in a lot sooner

    Well, if they want me to buy/play it, then they better.

    CLod just doesn't bring enough to the table for me to consider.

    What does it have?

    A very limited TO, and limited plane set, most of which I have no interest in flying to start with.

    I mean, how many times can you: scramble, intercept 2 eng bombers escorted by fighters, followed by scramble, intercept 2 eng bombers escorted by fighters, followed by scramble, intercept 2 eng bombers escorted by fighters, with an occasional scramble, intercept single eng dive bombers, before to gets really really boring?

    Once they open up the PTO, a much wider selection of aircraft, and give us carriers...I'll be more inclined to purchase it.

    Yea , I think a Med add-on has the most commercial appeal .

    Mainly because many nations are involved , most British and American planes of the period are featured and it would take less time to complete as it is not as heavy as the Eastern Front or Pacific in term of number of maps , flyable aircraft types and objects . Also with a Med addon , the COD serie would follow a chronological order , although it is a pity that what happened before BoB is ignored ( like the Battle of France and the Low countries which could have been interesting )

    Anyways , i hope the Pacific theater will come in the next 2 years , would be really amazing , but i guess i"ll have to rely on IL-2 1946 for this front , with Team Daidalos or qualiy mod packs

    well O/B it depends how many planes the game puts up there in the built in missions and the quality of the ai IMO.

    also how ones computer can handle these amount of aircraft

    M/P will probably be alright since they say 128 players in the game but that is still only 64 players to a side.

    Now if the odds are adjusted in a historically proper ratio heavily favoring the Germans this might work.

    About a 100 German aircraft to 28 British fighters would do I believe.

    with a proper mix of german bombers to fighters

    I'll say 6 to 8 months.

    There was mention that whatever the next installment was it would assume 50% of the current planeset as being factored into the next one. That says to me North Africa... We have a solid grounding in all of the major types serving there. Just later models (or in some cases the same ones!).
