Will Pacific Fighter be compatible with Forgotten Battles? I was wondering if Pacific Fighters, and Bob will be limited to only the planes in those games, or will we be able to carry over the collection of planes in Forgotten Battles?
It would be shame to see Forgotten Battles gigantic plane list get left in the dust of newer simulations with fewer planes.

Perhaps it is time for UBI, and 1C maddox to start thinking about universalizing the IL2 line of Flight Simulations into one game platform that can be added to, and upgraded. Dare I say it, Kind of Like how M$ regularly upgrades its Flight Simulator. I think it would be a good idea to consoldate all the planes and maps into one program. That would not only be convieniant, but it allow more creativity in the FMB.
As it is now we I have 3 differant CDs, IL2, FB, and ACES. The original IL2 aircraft are in Forgotten Battles, so It only makes sence to carry over Forgotten battles aircraft into Pacific Fighter, and BoB.
Just because I have new planes and maps, dosen't mean I'm tired of the old ones. And I'd like to able to fly the new planes on old maps, and visa versa.

Another thing I think needs to be done is to improve the Quik Mission Builder so that it automaticly saves you last inputs; planes, maps, weather, ect... Then just add a "CLEAR" button so the user can start anew.

As for the new products in development, take the needed to do it right. Don't let deadlines and whiners force sacrifices in quality. CFS3 should stand as an example as what can happen if you rush a product into production. I think every dedicated flight simmer baught CFS3,but not to many will ever invest in an M$ CFS ever again.
