First off, I've looked around as best I could for a answer to my question but I didn't get a very definate one and don't want to buy something and not be able to do with it what I bought if for. So, here's my question:

If I buy IL-2: Forgotten Battles Gold Pack and Pacific Fighters, would I be covered to play on all the MP servers? I'm afraid I won't be able to play on most servers because the website said that IL-2:FB doesn't not include the MP maps from Sturmovik. Do I need Sturmovik to play MP to the fullest extent (i.e, not have any MP version issues and whatnot)

Thank you for answering my question. If I posted this in the wrong forum, please forgive me.

FB+AEP+PF = v3.00
standalone PF = v3.00
FB+AEP(GOLD)+patch=v2.04

In order to play online you need either the first or 3rd option.
Do both installs because a number of servers is v2.04.

I hear that tommorow patch v3.01 will be available.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

yes you will be sorted to play most of the games, the older il2 sturmovik is not supported by FB and is a standalone game that FB replaced as a standalone game with increased options planes and maps so you dont need to go retrograde.... there are few servers for the original these days on ubicom and the total online players tend to be limited to about 20 ish, but there is a few still play it, i dohttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The Gold pack is infact FB and Aces packaged together so if you install that as mentioned above then PF over it you are good for the majority of online servers..... you will enjoy the experience and there are lots of free stuff to download like missions... campaigns and free skins http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif You have come to the right place to ask these questions and we are all pleased to help, even crazyivan http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif so as said with FB Goldpack complete and PF over that you will have the full aircraft pack and the fullest extent of the game.... if you load PF as a standalone you will be short of a few planes and that version i believe will not be the one supported by the new patch which will increase the amount of planes you can fly etc......

Get it bought and on your machine, you wont regret it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
