That, rob, is mere speculation ... They may have it on their scope but probably far down the priority list. It would greatly surprise me if anything but the bare minimum came out of it. Maddox Games never had a penchant for good gameplay, just a lot of technocracy. wink

Impressive list. How much of it is going to arrive in stand alone patches for CloD and how much are going to be in the BoM sequel that we'll be expected to buy? That is my only concern. Not that it will never happen, will it happen before BoM?

"The developer will be enabling AA and AF that will be used on the COD map"

Luthier has never spoke of FSAA or AF since before release, not ever.

DX11 was said to be a priority after release......not a word since, not even talked about for the release of BOM.

Agreed. I think there's actually a bit of "snobbish" attitude involved there, as if they were above such mundane aspects as "gameplay" and "atmosphere".

Just think what these talented software engineers could achieve if they were led by a guy like Lawrence Holland...

sigh

Thats a good question, some of those features probably won't be seen until well into the series of Theaters. That said, I don't see the sequel coming out for another 8 to 16 months, which allows time for not only the next optimization patch, but atleast one more patch after that addressing whatever problems they have fixed in that time period. We will also probably see a beta patch testing features that will be introduced in the sequel.

After that we will probably have to buy the sequels to add new features and even possibly some that fix features in COD. Sure some people say they won't buy the sequel if BOB isn't totally fixed, but most eventually will buy it, especially if there are good reports about the sequel. Some might not be interested in the theater, but if it adds aircraft and features they can use in COD, they will buy it. I doubt it would be worth the time and expense to develop a COD only patch for those very few people who won't be interested in buying future sequels. Most everyone here bought all the original series theaters, and if the new series gets its act together, and is as good as its potential there will be no problem getting people to buy it. That said there is always the possibility it could all go wrong, and we won't have to worry about buying sequels, we'll just have to hope that moders can keep improving IL-2 1946 or that War Thunder isn't too arcady.
