The title says it all.
Doesn't make sense to spend money on PE now if NE can be installed on UE directly.
But if NE needs PE to be installed then it doesn't matter when to spend, well, unless NE is sold together with PE in one package at a nice price. Then again it doesn't make sense to spend on PE now.
Scratching my head and counting my nickel.
Cheers,

It does because

1) the next WOFF won't be for some time, plus it will likely require PE (TBC for sure but likely)
2) PE is good smile
3) If PE sales stop then it's likely we won't be able to make any addon anyway.
4) For some, not enjoying the goodies now, because one day there will be some other goodies is a good thing, for most I'd say enjoy stuff now whilst you can ! smile

I hate to sound like a fan boy, but PE is worth the expense. As good a UE is, PE is much better, you will not regret purchasing it.

[shudder] This is a pretty good reason to buy it! And it's only 25 bucks. A very fair price for a very good product.

It's also worth noting that WOFF is the only WWI flight sim on the market with an expansion even being talked about by the devs, let alone in active development. And as was said above, PE is well worth the money. Lots of wonderful advancements to the sim.

All valid points, Polovski. Just a tip if I may: they will all also work if PE is needed for New Expansion! (so that you wouldn't feel like you were fobbed off when NE is released) biggrin

Thanks, guys.

I shifted to PE last week, and I enjoy it.
Cockpits look more immersive ...
My only problem is I lots all my previous campaigns, but all in all, I am very happy

No chance to restore your pilots/campaigns from backup?

If running AMD graphics cards on a Mac/Mac Pro, the PE upgrade is a "must have" - gets rid of ground shadow flickering and then you can run shadows at values of at least "2"/medium, as well as cloud shadows/density at values of at least "6" without any drop in fps.
