Does this include the Ace Expansion Pack? It doesn't say it does, but it seems crazy that it would not...

Nope. In fact, I believe that's the original IL-2. Not even Forgotten Battles.

1946 is only $20. I'd get that instead.

I was wondering because my cousin's 10 year old boys got it for Christmas, and I was going to share all of my downloaded missions and campaigns with them.

Does 1946 include PF/IL2FB/AEP and all the patches?

46 is Forgotten Battles, The AEP, Pacific Fighters, Pe-2, Sturmoviks Over Manchuria, and 46. All it will need is one patch, the 4.08m patch. A link to that can be found in the Nugget's Guide in my sig.

UFC is a hodge-podge collection of old titles. It has the original IL-2 (not FB), Pacific Fighters and the original version of Lock On.

IL-2 1946 is the same price as UFC at Wal-Mart. UFC should be pulled, end of story.

Yep, I just got screwed on the 'collection and am pissed since this is such a crappy rip off collection,,,,grrrr.. did not read the print thinking they most certainly would not release a product like this without support or the old AEP and FB included.

UBI you SUCK for releasing this collection!

In their defense, this collection was availible quite a long time before "1946" was released. I know, because it was this collection some time ago that got me started in the world of IL-2.

For 20 bucks, it was a pretty good value then, but now I would suggest you buy 1946 if you can find it.

I agree. This has been out for about 1.5 years almost. You can probably pick it up for under $10. I also recently bought 1946 for $9.99 at Circuit City.

UFC does NOT include any part of the Fogotten Battles series.

Oh and just to safe you a second disappointment,

<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">READ THIS:</span>

You DO NOT get 5 seperate games when buying
IL-2 Sturmovik 1946!!!!

You get the content of :

IL-2 Forgotten Battles
IL-2 Ace Expansion Pack
IL-2 Pacific Fighter Addon for IL-2 FB+AEP (NOT the standalone version!)
IL-2 Pe-2 Addon for FB+AEP+PF
Pe-2 Addon for IL-2FB+AEP+PF
IL-2 Sturmoviks over Manchuria for all of the above combined,
IL-2 46 Addon for all of the above combined

All of this installs in one go AS ONE GAME IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 version 4.07m (this is the same as Forgotten Battles v4.07m)

There is one free patch available (download 144 MByte), 4.08m which will bring you to the current version.
There is one more patch 4.09m expected, It is not known when or even if this patch will be released.

The age limit on the Sturmovik 1946 package does NOT mean you will be able to play it

You will very likely have problems installing Sturmovik 1946 on Windows Vista.
Go bug Billy Gates if you do - it's not Ubi's fault.

If you have Vista just install to somewhere other than C:\Program Files
