    Is it possible that players (who ever they are) could model new planes and you would say is it ok for new patch or not. I have seen ready models of Finnish Fokker, Ju-88 C-6, Ju-188. Those are professional work and could be fine to next patch.

    Well, I would like to have that Finnish Fokker for Winter War.

    Yes, you have seen models. Just because you have seen shots of work in progress models, doesn't mean to say the model was finished or accepted.

    The closing date for new models was several years ago now. The few accepted models waiting to be coded into the sim, may not make it at all into the last patch.

    All of Olegs resources are now concentrated on his next combat flight sim, Storm of War.

    So you may or may not get that that Fokker.

    Sure there are planes that I'd like to see added (the Hs123 and Swordfish),but I'd be happy if they just added some more load outs for...I don't know,the Hurricane.I've read many stories of Hurricanes being armed with rockets when used by the russians.I've even seen a pic of how they were placed on the wing of the Mk2B.

    Some months ago there was a rumor - or more - that as soon as Oleg puts out his "Battle Of Britain" he MIGHT open the code. As far as I understood that means that modifiers can create their cocpits and install them to this simulator.

    There are more knowing people here and perhaps they could enlight us more...?

    Ever so happily gaming

    New planes? As in brand new? Well yeah, a flyable Dreamliner would be nice. Who needs s**tty old-fashioned prop planes when there's modern iron available too, huh?

    That is precisely what you said - a rumor. I guess people remember Oleg talking about "licensing the engine to a trusted 3rd Party" to continue support for Il-2, but people chose to interpret what they like - not necessarily what Oleg was talking about. To me a "trusted 3rd Party" means a commercial developer which Maddox Games can contract, not a bunch of community modders. But with SoW in the pipeline and the various hurdles ("The Grumman Incident", reserved areas of operation [Channel, Med] and the general age of the engine) I have problems seeing a company taking over the support.

    And lastly: With one of the 4.XX patches a part of the SoW FM was introduced for testing and MG did also introduce a new security measure with 4.08. This means there have to be some similarities between the SoW codebase and the Il-2 one - and that means opening the engine to anyone might allow people also to "crack" SoW. That is hardly something Maddox Games would want, wouldn't they?

    In Germany there's a children's game called "Stille Post" (Silent Mail). The first one whispers something into the ear of his neighbor and so on. After the circle is closed the last one tells what he heard from his neighbor ... and usually it is never the same thing the first kid said.

    That is precisely how rumor-mongering in this community works.
