How much of a difference does Platinum addon actually make? Really don't have the money right now to get both UE and PE.
Hello potential WOFFer,
If you're strapped for cash currently, the most logical option is to buy the UE version and stay put for a while. Then, either buy the PE version later or the future upgrade that will follow PE.
Keep in mind that it makes no sense to buy PE, but not UE - since PE is only an addon and requires UE.
In terms of the future large update, I don't know whether it will already include PE or will be another addon on top of PE - for such info., I recommend contacting OBD Software directly.
I'm sure you will enjoy WOFF(ue) - it's really the only WWI flight sim that is still being developed. FE2 has been abandoned already for years by ThirdWire, as has Rise of Flight by 777 Studios. Yes, there is that Flying Circus stuff for the IL2-Box series - but, personally, I think WOFF is a much better long-term simulator investment.
