IL2Skins.com has my vote. It is scheduled for upcoming week, and patch is scheduled for unknown time. Personally I expect (read=hope) it (4.0) to arrive this month (may).

Geez, few moments before I saw this thread I thought: "It would be cool if I post bet-thread about when will patch arrive". Of course that the prize would be nothing more than pure satisfaction, it is still ok, but when some of mods see the thread, there would be some serious ban-rampage going on. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

On both things will be one certainty, a downloading frenzy, the question to be asked is whether or not the source of material will be appreciated, be it IL2Skins or Maddox Games, Things often appear to be very much Smash 'N'Grab when it comes to downloads and no thought into source, future or content

05-01-2005, 04:53 PM
Exactly Snoopy! Where was all this concern for IL-2skins while everyone was hammering their bandwidth for downloading without ever contributing? (comment not directed at any one person)

IL2 skins is my bet.

Nooooo Il2skins is open for business next week for skinners to repopulate the site...Not for downloads i believe and we have a unlimited upload period of a month to do it.... this is also the beta testing period to test the site is working.... as to when it will be open to download is another thing but I would not expect it for a few more days or even weeks...... oh and one thing is for sure unlike another well known beta test this one won't be appearing on another website for download..................... I quote off the site

Skinners Beta Signup Coming next week (Time to repopulate the database)
Skinners will be able to signup and access a special page to upload their skins. It will serve as a beta test for the re-coding of the upload section and also we'll have some skins ready when we re-open the site. Stay tuned!

05-01-2005, 06:32 PM
Still Skins

05-01-2005, 07:35 PM
It'll be IL2skins, be sure.

05-02-2005, 04:01 AM
It will be il2skins.

05-02-2005, 06:47 AM
4.0....... I hope.

You are right about that.... I was one of those guilty folks.. although I didnt use it a lot it was there when I needed it. I opened up a PP account just for IL2 Skins.. I wont be missing that well again hopefully.

and i hope i will be proofed wrong !

05-02-2005, 07:17 AM
Well, with Oleg being in his 2 accidents and recooperating, I'll bet on IL2Skins.

Oleg, hope your feeling better. S!

I'm betting that IL2Skins will stay pretty close to whatever schedule Sharx announces. The patch? Hard to say.

05-02-2005, 08:34 AM
The skins IMHO. And the (insert "p" word here) is no longer a priority for me. If it is released, good. If not, then oh well. Just not a biggeee anymore.

I voted for IL2skins.com

There is nothing like losing something priceless for a while to make you appreciate it's worth. Sad thing, but we are all just human after all. I always thought that it was a "gem" in our community, but never as much as when it was gone.

The "Great Blue Hope", otherwise known as 4.0, will be out when Oleg gets better. After what I've read here and in ORR, that could be a while (but I really hope not). I personally hope Oleg is feeling 100% while finishing up this patch, cause I'd hate to think what might happen if he has to make many decisions while in pain. Software engineering is a tedious task at best, but more so after you've already created a universe with this many planes, environments and their associated physics. We all need for this one to be right, wether we fly red or blue or both.

There is one A/C which is more universally condemed by "thinking" pilots, across the entire community, red or blue (with the exception of those who fly it, of course) than anything that ever showed up on the IL2 virtual battlefield. For my part, I want Oleg at 100%, when he's working on that one. The "physics" of this one plane type, and it's weapon performance relative to all other A/C has drastically altered the balance in the game, and I believe has taken the discourse between members of the community to a new low.

So for now, I'll try to content myself with the recovery of IL2 skins. What a great thing! I never expected to see it back. The return of IL2skins ranks up there with the removal of the "Blind German/Russian" muzzle flashes, i.e. a great gift that I did'nt expect. I still can't hit S%$# sometimes, but at least I can see what I'm missing!

Oh, and if that "one bad plane type" does'nt get the physics it deserves, I guess another year of trying to fly my FW's against them, will only make me a better pilot. Heck, look at Fish, Rall, Heinz, Eco, Sikira and Patched2Death! And Patched2Death is killing them in a Bf-110!

Makes me feel like an old man. Wait, I am an old man compared to most of those guys http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I reckon it's going to be skins, although I'm sure the patch is only two weeks away! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I bet the patch is done but 1C is waiting for Oleg to get out of his hospital room and teleport to the 1C headquarters so he can personally press the big red button labelled Patch Release.

The patch.

My bet is on next friday or next monday.

05-31-2005, 02:34 AM
I'm voting on some sort of twisted mutant offspring of both the 4.0 patch and IL2Skins, where when you download a CERTAIN skin for a CERTAIN plane you get a snippet of the binary for the 4.0 patch included in the .zip.

You have to delve through the archives like a ferret (and destroy all of poor Sharx's bandwidth in the process), and 'collect 'em all' (the pieces of the binary that is) so you can be the 'ultimate Poke-IL2 Master' and ascend to Super Saiyan 4.0 Flight model status.

There's a special easter-egg feature, where if you want to get the mk108s or .50 cals to perform in the way your imagination thinks they should (i.e. microatomic warheads). You hook up a microphone to your soundcard and yell out 'Mark Hundred and Eight - I choose you!' just before firing.

For the fifty cals, it's just 'Kameha-meha-me-ha-me-ha-HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'

Well ok, it's only speculation. A+ for effort, though?

Congratulations to the winners!

06-09-2005, 04:14 PM
That's all great, but the MK in MK108 has nothing to do with the word "mark".

06-09-2005, 04:58 PM
Il2 skins were hosting the patch. They won't recover until October at the earliest.
