1. BoB = Battle of Britain. Battle of Britain will be represented by Maddox game Battle of Britain: Storm of War.
Entirely new game in every aspect, improved graphics, models etc.
2. IL-2 Sturmovik 46 will not be upgraded to look better, the only way you can help it in this regard is to get yourself some kickarse hardware so that the game looks nicer.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

BOB :- Battle of Britain is the generic title used to indicate the period of the game This title is not copyrightable, so anybody can use it. All Flight Sim Developers use the name and then add their copyrighted name afterwards.

1) Battle of Britain is an entirely new product using an entirely new engine built from the ground up. New physics, weather, modeling, eyecandy, radar, the works.

2) Storm of War is the new series of WWII based flight sims. The first one is based on the Battle of Britain in 1940. After that we're not completely sure but we've heard about going to North Africa, the Mediterranean, Italy, and possibly in a separate development to Korea for 1950 era early jet battles.

3) No the game engine is pretty hard coded into the rest of the parts of the game. Some of the eye candy has been turned up. Since 4.01 we've had new clouds, and more recently we've had even more improved water rendering for people with high end DX9.0C enabled cards which enable 3D water with wave tops, reflections, and the like. It's starting to look a tad long in the tooth sometimes (but it holds up well for being 7 years old) but Storm of War will take care of any pressing needs for graphical eye candy.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

ok so battle of britain is the same game as storms of war then ?is it out allready or is it still to come ? and if so , when is it espectet ? is this game gonna be like the next il2 or is it a different maker and therefore the possibility exists that it could be a massive turndown like i think lock on is ?
i mean , r we , il2 junkies gonna reackonize it as 'the next game ' , or is blind panic justified right now ?

<span class="ev_code_yellow">So Battle of Britain is the same game as Storm of War?</span>

Correct. Current working title appears to be Storm of War: Battle of Britain. After that, expect Storm of War: Battle for the Mediterranean or something similar in a new line of simulation products.

<span class="ev_code_yellow">Is it out already or is it still to come? If so, when is it expected?</span>

No, it is not out already. Initial estimates were for maybe this Autumn/Fall (2007), however, this is probably wildly optimistic. My money's on Summer 2008.

<span class="ev_code_yellow">Is this game gonna be the next IL2 or is it a different maker?</span>

SoW:BoB is from 1C Maddox, who brought us IL2. Same development team, so we're all hoping it's as engaging and long lived as the IL2 series. There's no reason to fear otherwise, despite all the pre-whining and occasional episodes of forum panic.

<span class="ev_code_yellow">Are we IL2 junkies gonna recognise it as 'the next game'</span>

You betcha. Still plenty left in the current one though! Looking forward to 4.08 (the next, and possibly last, free patch for IL2/1946 - out soon)!
