haven't flown sturmovik for awhile. watching some wwii footage this weekend made me want to play some more, maybe strafe some ground troops. hehehe

I see that everything is geared towards AEp now. should i get it? and if i do what exactly do i get for my 30.00 besides the spitfire?

Don't waste your money! Seriously.. this game sucks. You'd be better off shoving your hand into a woodchipper than to buy Aces Expansion Pack and fly a P38 Lightning, Spitfire, Me163, or any of the other aircraft...

Worthless I say!

Yes it's worth it!
Especially if you want to fly (and fight) online. Almost all the servers are running AEP.
Besides that, it has some very fine aircraft.

How long of awhile?

If you only have IL-2 the you will need FB for AEP to work and the answer is yes, you should IMO

I'd say yes- if you enjoyed FB, AEP is worthy addition, and if you are able to shop around online, its surprisingly cheap.

Plus there is more development underway (there are still some bugs to correct with AEP) so another patch is coming along at somepoint.

If we are lucky there are a whole set of new planes that could be in it- flyable Ju-88's, B-25's and all those wonderful Italian aircraft Veltro and his buddies have been working on.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - G√ľnther Rall

Look Noobie, we already told you, we don't have the Patch!

Nothing wrong with that. Never let anyone tell you your level of enjoyment isn't as qaulity as theirs. Fly the way that puts a smile on yer mug.

I'm getting seriously addicted to this game - just bought the BOE addon as well for the normandy campaigns, not to mention 3 joysticks (Prec pro2, FFB2, and spare http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) Because of this game I will probably end up getting other (more expensive) kit, like a radeon 9800 pro http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

Sorry for straying OT: in answer to your question ... a resounding YES! and if you don't have FB - then go out and get the FB "Gold pack" - which is basically FB and AEP in the same box.

S!

There is a patch for AEP - 2.01 - be sure to get that from the il2sturmovik.com site. Best to do so at work if you have fast connection and cd burner as it is 108MB! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

thx, ill try. i dont have alot of luck d/ling things on the mac here, taking them home and getting them to work in win. the transfer changes alot of extensions to dat files. ill try though as i have one cd here.

I just got AEP and i already have questions.

in fb, there were pdf files on the disc that had neat little bios for all the planes. is there a list of the new flyables for aep somewhere with a list of their stats? like what guns they have and what their speeds should be?


thx
