I see that 1C has re done their website, and there is no mention if IL2-1946 or SOW anywhere on it.

Any ideas?

Their forums are also gone.

Yup, strange. The forums were off-line yesterday too. Three possibilities:

(a) Technical hitch.
(b) Financial problems?
(c) BoB:SoW was a hoax, it never existed, we've been had. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I'd say wait and see. I'm sure an explanation (or an unsubstantiated rumour) will arrive soon enough.

The Il2 1946 forum was briefly back this morning (with a pale blue color, so yellow was really gone ...), but they are again off at present. I think they are moving offices, at least that's what Oleg and Ilya said.

Yesterday, I mentioned in another thread that the 1C site was down.
I haven't tried since then.

Yeah I wouldn't read too much into it. SoW has come a long way for it to be shelved.

I guess we will see if there is a shake up in the works.

Personally I am more jazzed about the development Daidalos is doing. The real radio navigation, radar etc. is nothing short of amazing.

If and when Storm of War gets released, my guess is its going to be a decent game with undeveloped potential, basically a solid platform to build on.

I started playing IL 2 when it was first released and didn't like it. It sat on in my closet for years until FB and the Aces Xpack came out in 04. It was at that point the game turned the corner and became an addiction.

From what I have seen of the development of SoW there seems to be a lot of focus on ground objects, grass, the way paint flakes off the planes, buckles on pilot harnesses and a lot of stuff that dosen't really matter to me as a flight simmer.

I mean if you look at all the screen shots released, less than half of them actually seem to have a plane in them. I just find that odd for a flight sim.

It just seems to me like Oleg may be lost in the weeds over there and maybe someone else besides me noticed.

10.16 pm in the UK and the banana forum is back. I certainly prefer it to the washed out blue thing it temporarily became earlier today!
