My biggest compliment to Oleg about FB and AEP is that , graphically and FM , it is the absolute best military flight sim on the market , without a doubt !! But my biggest complaint (and I think everyone agrees) is the sounds , they are the worst !! They suck ! Not only Warbirds with their ability for user addon sounds but even Bill Gates has him beat for sounds.That doesn't even include the ground based games like "Call of Duty" (NOW there's a fantasy !! CoD and IL2 compatible !) Not only lousy sounds..but boring sounds ...every fighter and MG sounds the same to me! SOoooo....my question is.....has anyone in development given any consideration to addressing SOUNDS in PF or are we going to get the same old boring stuff? Just wondering.

Good Point.

Anyone knows WW2 Fighter ? This had a great sound, every engine was different. Dont now whether it was 100% realistic, but it was real impressive. E.G. the 109 sound was very high because of the turbo loader.

Dig it! The Merlin engine sound on a P-51 flyby in WW2 Fighters was awesome! The .50 cals didn't sound like "drumming on a rubber pad". The enemy guns didn't sound like hissing static (VVS). The sound in FB just got worse with every patch. V1.0 had fair(for IL2) 109 sounds, but they still fell behind any older game on the market. You're right though. This very basic immersion factor seems to be beyond their capabilities. I wish that the developers thought that it was impt. to get it right.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/34.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I wonder if Ilya and co. have time to rework the sound portion of the code at this point...

I think major code changes - if this is one - will probably not happen until the new BoB sim. This is just a guess. Maybe someone fron the Shop will respond?..
