If it didn't include the F-86 in all it's variants and the MiG-15, there wouldn't be a reason to make it. IMO

Yes,I would go for it with the F-86 and the Mig-15. I would even pay for it.

For anyone who might be interested, Strike Fighters Project 1 has a fairly comprehensive Korean War Mod.

Yes - but only if the high-altitude graphics and flight model received a bit of attention. Dogfighting Mig-15s in the wierd upper troposphere we are offered by IL-2 would require more of a suspension of disbelief than I can muster without at least half a botttle of brandy. Maybe this one should be saved for the BoB engine?

Cheers,

I agree but if we show the general interest first we can fine tune what we'd specificly like later.

Nice post Bo_Nidle. I was a little hesitant, but I went w/ the jet option, 'cause maybe we'd get a Panther, a Scorpion, and an A26 and Twin Stang for the "prop crowd"...and perhaps a real F80 w/ tip tanks and rockets for everyone! I've messed around with other KTO sims, but nothing comes close IMO to the graphics we have, even now, with the IL2 series..to be honest, this is the sim that tore me away from my 6 year EAW addiction. So if Oleg and Company did a KTO expansion or stand-alone, I'd certainly be chomping at the bit to go out and buy it.

A Korean War addon would be great but it doesn't seem like 1C wants to do anymore addons after the three planned ones. Didn't they say they would release the source code after the release of BOB. That would be a great time to do something like this.

Phas3e
04-11-2006, 01:15 PM
I voted yes even without all the jets as the low level stuff would be just as much fun,
but even better if we got F84s and F9Fs to streak along in.

A KTO add-on will definitively inject a second life (as a matter a 3rd one) to the Il2 series. If 3rd parties are ready to do some modelling of planes, I don't see why Oleg and the Ubi 1C tem would object to the development of such an Add-on. After all for then it will mean profit (even if we speak of a free add-on, more people will keep on buying the Il2-FB-PF series, even now that BOB is getting on the market - remember BOB is tied to a specific historical period, while Il2 has not impeded by that). And the russian market will welcome this add-on greatly as I have a feeling that Korea is probably more prone to focus their interest than the Battle of Britain. BTW if it's going to be a russian market add-on ... BEWARE! During my last trip to Russia, in December, I bought 2 Russian Add-ons (Operation Barbarossa and Road to Okinawa - official versions in a regular store, instead of buying a dubious origin version in the subway galleries) and has been unable to install them on my PC - although I have as operating system XP pro + Russian MTU installed. Does this mean that it's better to buy "non official local made copies" - or is there a trick to install a russian add-on on an english Il2-FB-PF merged install (or unmerged - I also tried it)?

A Korean Conflict addon would be a natural follow up of the WW2 IL-2 FB.
But as seen from the posting in the forum over the past years... it's only a Dream. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes but it's got to have those jets and more if possible. Also mit ein 4 engined bomber (B-29 perhaps) and the flash Pommie stuff that the girls like so much. Also, as the KTO was a bit one sided when it came to ground pounding how about throwing in playable AAA for the communists?

Also, the KTO offers the tantalising possibility of...helicopters.

I have no interest in the Korean period. For me it`s a gray area that doesn`t seem to know what it wants to be aircraft-wise... A jet sim or prop sim? Very much like the Napoleonic era where ground wars are concerned (No interest in the Napoleonic wars).

That said, if Oleg produced a Korean war sim, I might give it a gander.

Aeronautico
04-11-2006, 05:21 PM
Oleg stated there were a few addons in the making and TWO totally new projects by third parties using IL-2 engine, based on different time frames than WWII.
One turned out to be Gennadich's WWI. The other?!

Korea is worthy of its own sim, not as an add-on.

I have doubts Oleg would do it up right, though. We'd have MiGs that defy the laws of physics, and Sabres that can't get off the ground.

No, I would not- the theatre does not interest me in the slightest. In my opinion the effort such a sim/expansion requires would be better spent in upgrading the Pacific content of the current sim, or better yet, a new PF based on the BoB engine.

The only reason I would consider buying such a Korean expansion pack or sim would be to support 1C.

I think you may've answered the question there. It'd probably mean it'd have to be a stand alone though and being limp wristed artist I've no idea about how incredibly complex the integration of the two flight control systems in one sim would be but there you go.

Come to think of it, is there a sim out there that offers Helo and conventional flight and isn't Operation Flashpoint?

A KOREAN addon made more sence to me than BoB ever did. KOREA has russian planes, is the peak of BnZ dog fights and the transition from prop to jet.. all in all one of the most intersting eras of dog fighting imho. When 1C said they were going to do BoB, well I would have lost money on that bet, KOREA seemed like the logical choice for Oleg's next step, in that like the Russian front, KOREA has so many planes that never got any respect.

But...with the new engine and improved experience through higher technology that will be available in another year (SLI will be commonplace and my 6800Ultra won't do for even an entry-level system likely) I'm glad they wanted to basically start back at the beginning ( No disrespect to the WWI crowd http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif )



Not to hijack this thread, but when is the WWI iteration of the FB engine due for release?

I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Flying a B-26 solid nosed version, 18 .50's firing forward, 2500 pound bombload, HVAR's....fun fun fun.

I give a big thumbs up to this although such an add-on for FB is out of the question.

This is probably the most transitional period for aircraft. Jets and uber-props routinely mixing it up over the DMZ with lots of helicopter and even bi-plane activity. Lot more exciting for a video game than the one-sided modern air combat we often see.
