It's available new at Amazon for seven dollars. The price went down about three weeks after I bought it for fourteen.

Down from $45 to $7, this should tell Oleg something!

What should it tell Oleg Hawk?

Good buy maddvmaxx, patch it to at least 3.04 and enjoy.

That PF is a failure. No single-engined torp bomber for instance. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Perhaps it should tell "US" instead that the flight sim market for PC's is a small one....Not the billion dollar profit maker some here think it is.......

Meaning, that all the work, effort and grief from ungrateful players....That often got the sim for very little money and at even the max. price was a great deal..............Is done for very very little profit if any.

Enough aggrivation from some here....and don't be shocked if one day 1c & Ubi simply say it's not worth it....Then you can go back to your FPS & CFS....

No doubt then saying how lousey the IL2 series was........ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

It should tell them that the open achitecture of the likes of Microdrosses sims make them hold a longer realtime residual value in the open marketplace, therefore maximising your returns and by allowing 3rd part add ons keeping it at the forefront of the sim community.

No doubt..........That is why most simmers are here instead....

There are "sims"...then there are "games"....This a sim. If the other was better and the open architecture made it worth it...then everyone "here"...would be "there".


p.s. to SteveV.....catch me if you can and you get a pennant

Thanks for the clarification Jasko76, did Hawk injure his typing finger and you are showing your kindness by stepping in for him?

Good Show.

Jasko76, Oleg has a workaround for the Avenger, if he'll use it. If he does, then we'll have it someday. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

What? No freedom of speech around here? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

We do miss a torp bomber in a Pacific sim. It simply isn't complete without this feature, wether some people like it or not.

We can't always pat Oleg in the back, and he has indeed made a great sim. But if no one ever whinged, Oleg wouldn't know which aspects of the sim to fix.

Now, I said the PF is a failure IMO, yes. But I love the FB part of the sim. I wouldn't play it as much as I do if I didn't, right?

What is this workaround, GT? Remember, we need some single-engined torp bombers for the blue side as well.

Actually, that drop off in price is pretty typical for this business.

IL-2 held on to it price so long because that's the version players must have. The same, somewhat, goes for Forgotten Battles.

Pacific Fighters is a glorified expansion kit. To be cynical, the "lesson" Ubisoft probably learned is that it's OK to charge $40+ for a IL-2 product. Somebody will pay it.

People also forget Maddox' rather candid description of the deadline pressure he was under. Corporate management had a deadline and insisted he meet it. That's the problem.

Well nobody told some stores, like my local CompUSA.

Pacific Fighters is still priced at $ 40. It must mean it's doing real well and Oleg should continue business as usual right ? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Jasko76, the info I had has been passed on to one that talks to Oleg on a regular basis. If Oleg wished to persue it it's up to him. Do know this tho, there are other ways to go around the word Grumman.

I bought PF becuase I buy everything from Oleg as I think he creates just the finest of simulations.

Okay, let's hope Oleg finds a way!

By the way, we allready have a couple of Grummans in the game, how did he managed to get those in the game, but not the Avenger?

If you recall, on the box was written, Grumman TBM Avenger. And the fact that the Avenger wasn't finished for release didn't help either. That's how Grumman got in on the act. As for the others in game they didn't see them written and that's how I think they were overlooked. I don't believe anyone from Grumman has ever played the sim. If they did they didn't pick up on it. LOL
