Hey 'all, I've heard of some expansions packs coming soon. Exactly what are they, and when could they be out on the market? Thanks much.

I've lifted the following from Aeronautico's post a couple pages back.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>
There are three add-ons planned the year to come, plus a possible fourth one (from 1C/UBI):

1. The official Expansion Pack (I doubt it will be called ACE, and surely the cover will be different: can't you read "for display purposes only"?!). It will include the improvements you read about, and a new map should be K√¬∂nigsberg (nowadays' Kaliningrad). I bet 1.22 will be out before that.
2. The "Battle over Europe" add-on by Just Flight and Luthier/Starshoy, endorsed by 1C, that will include new dynamic campaign improvements (including an on-line camapaign system), new AI formation flights (the "boxed" B-17 that are not currently available), new skins, campaigns and missions, and will focus on the Western front. Most of the stuff appeared in 1.2 was actually developed with this add-on in mind.
3. The Luthier's project, an entirely new project scheduled for end of the year which will add new theatres, planes, features to FB, about the same way FB added to IL-2. It is planned to be a stand-alone product apparently, but working with FB the same way EECH worked with EEAH, for the ones in the know.
4. Another official add-on, which may be and may be not for pay. Or exhisting at all. It depends on the first add-on sale figures, obviously.

Then, of course, BoB with expantions and follow-ons (other projects like Luthier's in the while, should BoB be delayed?).... <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
