Does anybody know if Oleg will create other campaigns that will merge with BOB? Such as an all new Russian front Perhaps?

This is my general plan:

BoB, then after BoB Africa then something new (don't know yet)

We will use successfull attempt with PF...
1) Releasing BoB.
2. Released Africa as stand alon and with possibility to merge with BoB.
3. releasing new stand alone theater say X, with the possibility to merge with BoB + Africa + X
4. etc. Including European, Russian front and Pacific, but before will be several titles.

Finally we will get even more than in Il-2 series amount, quality, etc..

Such method will help me to be alive for a long time. You know that currently we are almost alone on the market... niche is too small.
But I dislike to go on consoles and name it simulators.. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I do wonder why the next aditions will be released as stand-alones... After all the cr@p on these boards about PF ("I'ts not complete", "lacks this, lacks that","it's ****", "where are my torpedo bombers", "who cares i can merge it with the others", with all the new guys whining X and Y, anyway, you know the story), i can't understand why Oleg lets them have a second try. In my opinion, it would be better just to release the first BoB as stand-alone, and the rest of them as add-ons. As the experience showed, most of the new players that arrived with PF, have also got Fb and AEP, so it would be simple... "You want X theatre? Get all the pack... You like it? Ok; You don't like it? Goodbye.". My 0.2" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I read it as being able to merge them.

I think that 1C have learnt that when they release an add-on as stand alone, it should be pretty much complete, and stand up on it's own. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

This should bode well for the future additions. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If each Theater is *pure* Stand Alone, support for new Features, aircraft, and maps for each Theater will vanish as the next stand alone Theater is releaced.

If all the Theaters are Merged, then we will see continued additions to all Theaters as the series is developed. For example, if Flyable Fairey Battle is not included in Battle of France sim, it can be added at any time during development of series. If the sims are Stand Alone, this won't happen as each stand-alone Theater is abandoned with the releace of the next stand-alone Theater.

Hitler rides Fw~200? P~38 would be the long range Assasin of Choice. Remember Yammamoto.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif I plan to use Spit~14 as MiG I~224 for campaign where Germany makes effort at bombing Ural mountains--its in the Barbarossa Directive 21, ordering Luftwaffe to switch to strategic bombing of Ural mountains after German Army reaches the northern Volga to the East of Moscow.

Some of the discussion in this thread reminds me of the last time the Stand-Alone vs. Merged question was raised. I think the lesson that wasn't learned that time around is that the words "stand-alone" and "merged" either aren't defined specifically enough relative to the topic.

I think by now Oleg's team has learned enough about what we fans want to not let us down. The variety and possibilities available in PF mergred are truly amazing.
