More planes.

Recommended Posts

Canada, they simply can't do it - period.

I'm sure if they had the overhead they'd be happy to give us a 'freebie' now and then, but they need revenue to stay afloat and continue development, and Jason has even said

that the current situation reminds of of RoF in the old days. They need every sale.

Well, maybe we'll see a Hurricane under the Christmas tree one day. Who knows.

 

In any case, this discussion is taking place between paying customers. That's a plus.

But as far as whining goes... what I will whine about is the lack of BOM and BOS ribbons under my avatar.

 

I dropped the cash, I support the team, I'd like to see some ribbons I under my avatar. I think anyone who dropped the cash should be afforded the recognition of being a payimg customer and not left feeling like a tourist.

 

Thus endeth my whine.

If its not against the rules to "appropriate" the ribbons, that's a good idea.

I would like a Dornier 17, and for ground objects to cause less lag. Then the Finishpilots server would truely be the best(for bonber pilots anyway, the whole lobby is based on ground target killing). And also, Malta, for one amazing online campaign with RAF fighters defending the island, Luftwaffe airraids to take out the field, supply convoys being intercepted by Beufighters, Beuforts and Swordfishes, and the Royal Navy sending convoys to Malta and the middle east. Alternatively, they can have Burma, and bring the joys of hunting small Japanese teams in a huge rainforest.

I agree, Malta would be awesome! I personally really want a Papua New Guinea campaign, P40s and P39s vs A6Ms and Ki43s, escorting A20s and B17s!

I'd still like to see an I-153 and an HS 123, the title needs more biplanes...

 

And yes, I want to pay for them...

 

I just want some planes that really make me want to climb in the virtual cockpit and fly again.

 

Not too much to ask, is it?

The progress of the aircraft team so far this year has been so rapid it wouldn't surprise me if they manage to sneak in an extra plane or two.

I want a Mosquito! At this sim's level of detail, that would be awesome.

I want them to update RoF and merge it into BoX. Then do Korea and Vietnam and have it all in one huge game system. They could expand the tanks and make drivable trucks and AA and ships. Then we could take over infantry bodies and jump from planes and have massive battles.

Storch

The idea of flying online, across the lines to check out some troop displacements and back again, just surviving to land again at home to me would be great fun.

The community at large has said a few times that we'd love to see others who weren't part of the pre-order get the bars on the forum too. One suggestion was a bronze colour or something along those lines to keep the pre-order still feeling a bit special.

 

If/when you get in on the early-access for Kuban you'll certainly get that at the very least!

Shamrock is a gentlemen and many of ppl here are just savages including myself.

 

No free plane. Planes are vital organs of flight sims.

 

There are already free maps via multiplayer, free upgrades to graphics, fm, dm and many other features that are funded by subsequent title buyers.

 

Whats next after free planes? Free theatres?

 

If you want planes, go mow some lawn, and go buy JU52.

 

You will appreciate it more.

++

 

 

Also dont forget, there are high quality "free" scripted campaigns.

 

"It would be nice to throw in free planes"

Stop this vomit inducing blood sucking comments.

 

 

If you want to get some free stuff, go to Salvation Army. They got some warm clothes for ya.

The IL2 guys are showing up Lockheed's Prepar3d for physics, graphics, and overall plane fidelity, and they're doing it a shoestring budget. I'd drink to that.

 

In fact, I already have.

That would be awesome as there are a few missing types that we could really do with before the shift to the Pacific. ;)

 

As for what, well my wish list:

 

IAR 80.

Hurricane.

 

Blenhiem Mk.I

DB 3

 

Fw-189

 

Po-2.

Storch

 

DC-3/Li-2.

 

My list, I also agree with the case for the biplanes though as well.

 

 

We could do this all day long dreaming of all those battles we fought in the original series but with the outstanding enhancements available in the new one. :salute:

 

It would also be nice if the current maps that are only available for winter got a summer version, let us also throw in the Murmansk map

getting finished, It is good to keep dreaming and hoping.

 

Sorry, I am rambling again, must take my meds. 

 

 

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. :biggrin:

A Barbarossa campaign is a must, with: Hs123, Do17, Storch, DB3, I153, Po2, Li-2, Fw189 and

Collector's planes:

IAR 80

Hurricane

 

I will pay for it, no problem :)

The Hurricane would actually be a good idea, I would fly that one. Have a sentimental weak point for it. I have nothing against it if it was for free. It is a very good sales point for a simulator to give one free aircraft for people to try in a map.

What about having a E7 and a Hurricane for free and free access to servers in a test period of 1 month, I can guarantee that the money will come later

If we're getting a Hurricane I want those ginormous derpy anti-tank guns.

Hurrricane would be fun. It would suck against the existing plane set, but on the other hand it would fit a wide range of theaters and would be a popular item to buy since a lot of people are very affectionate towards that ugly old kite.

Yeah, but smoking Luftwaffe bombers in a Hurricane full of .303s is a special kind of fun. :hunter:

Actually I think instead of spending a lot of time trying to upgrade RoF to dx11 and BoX standards, they should just import everything from RoF into BoX and sell it as BoX DLC so it will benefit from future updates. Also so that we can see some 109 jockeys whine about porked FMs when they get shot down by a SPAD.

BoWW1

 

I'd buy that. Might actually get people playing RoF again.

 

Attacking a bunch of He111s with some se5as would be interesting also! You get one HO pass!

Yes. Il-2: Battle of World War 1 would be badass.

Could you imagine how much complaining rise of flight would get if they gave people the Fokker E.III and Airco D.H.2, Rise of Flight gives you three free planes, and they're considered pretty good!

 

I think the 109-F2 and LaGG-3 would be a better choice?

There's a lot of us that would support a re-work of RoF into the Bos engine...however I'm not sure we constitute enough customers to ever make it financially viable for 777.

The struggle keeping RoF going would seem to indicate not...increased exposure/marketing from this current product plus VR though...roll of the dice I think.

I would love that too. However from what I've heard about such is that the RoF world is not that compatible anymore with the current technology as used in BoX now, and it would require a significant re-write of code to make things working again.

 

I always thought that the simulator itself ("world renderer") should be largely agnostic to the map and planes it operates. There is no reason not to combine all combat aircraft in one sim. You make your mission then by selecting a theater and the apropriate planes. But there is no reason not to park an F-15 next to a SPAD. They can do it in Duxford as well.

Exactly, like how some people take things for granted and become natual in asking for more free things without paying.

I took nothing for granted. I paid for BOM, I paid for BOS, and I bought two extras planes. And I'm sure i will buy BOK, probably next week. I was also sincere in my thanks to the developers for the recent update who makes the sim run very well on my older PC.

 

I voiced a polite opinion about how nice it would be if we were to see a plane offered in an update at one point, and for reasons incomprehensible to me, several people lost their composure and reacted as if candy was being taken from the most innocent of babies.

 

If some people wish to overreact, that is up to them.

FWIW the Ju 52 was a free AI unit many months before they converted it in to a full, player controlled aircraft.

 

Though none of us can really quantify the financial success of the Ju 52 (without JW releasing confidential/proprietary sales data) its pretty clear that in 3/4 cases it was a resounding success in the community. It also worked to prove that non-traditional roles in a CFS can be a lot of fun and that the technology is out there to create great features on fairly short notice.

 

I hope to see something like this again with budgets and timelines permitting.

I think JW is focused right now on recovery and rebuilding confidence in the product. Once the word gets out about how great things are now in Il-2 and all of the great things to come I think more people will be buying. I think the VR was a really good investment as I am sure that is what will grab the younger generation. RIght now it is just a big circle of "Buy our stuff!" and "We bought it all and need more to buy!". Once they start reaping the benefits of Jason's leadership and are given more to work with as far as budget goes, I am sure we will see much more content and improvements. These guys are showing now what they can do with almost nothing and it has far exceeded most expectations.
