That was me.. I still want to see a Japanese carrier.

But a new map representing another combat area would be cool . the Midway one looks great, but it looks like the people want to see Java, Borneo, etc..

04-29-2004, 12:17 PM
personally i would like to see japanese carriers and more maps..

04-29-2004, 12:21 PM
I chose more maps, but in all honesty I'm not worried about what the carriers and aircraft will look like, based on what I see in FB and AEP I'm sure they will look awsome as usual. I'm more interested in details like the campaign, mission builder, MP issues like will the carrier be MP friendly,etc

Yep - I'm with ya, and thanks for posting specifics..

I know PF hardware will look good,..
..but I still love to see those purty pictures. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif..

Maybe a little more info from the developers about campaigns, gameplay,etc in text format would be good.

04-29-2004, 12:31 PM
I voted "other" -- my choice being BATTLEWAGONS (the IJN Yamato or IJN Musashi in particular).

But I always like more maps which was my 2nd choice. For that I would like to see Rabaul, especially with the volcano looming in the background. Sweet !

04-29-2004, 01:27 PM
I voted for carriers (different class carrier) is what I'm looking for.
My second vote would be for more text info or other ships images...

04-29-2004, 02:32 PM
Exec01 -

Do you mean jeep carriers or ...

sandwich carriers? or beer carriers?

I like the beer carriers at Hooters myself..

Carrier. The only reason for PFs existance.


04-29-2004, 04:10 PM
Definately Rabaul!

I know CFS2 is not popular here, but some of the best missions for it were those around Rabaul. Heading towards Simpson Harbour with clouds of flak, Corsairs and Zeros everywhere, cruisers and destroyers trying to make a break for it, IJN and IJA fighters taking off from the half-a-dozen airfields around the town, and as Capt._Tenneal said, that ominous volcano.

And of course the chance to re-create VF-17's bombing of the Japanese officer's brothel http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I want to see the Akagi or the Soryu or the Zuikaku... please a japanese carrier!

Pearl Harbour,Philipines or Guaducanal

All the maps for the Solomons, from Moresby to Rabaul to Guadalcanal. And grids to see how big they are.

CFS2 is popular here, as it should be. It was an fairly good sim judging by the number of FBers who say they liked it.

04-30-2004, 10:49 AM
Update is out, and no PF items were included. AEP patch a/c were shown instead. In the meantime, I'd sure like to see the maps.

The Maps vs The Carriers

The poll is too close to call.... where is Luthier?.. post something so we can know you are alive. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

or are we playing the whole "Paul is really dead" Beatles rippoff thing to the hilt? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif

I can't wait to see one of the planes sitting on one of the carrier decks! I'd like to see screen shots of an arrested landing.

oK - I'm bumping this up just in case.

Today is wednesday - the Dev update is usually posted on Friday so maybe we can see another map? or a bigger image of Luthiers sig with Akagi (Bridge/island on the left side) loaded with planes..?
Those were the top vote getters on this poll from last week.

Keep voting people and maybe we'll get a PF update this FRi. 05-07-04 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'm keeping my fingers crossed too. My choice for YAMATO & MUSASHI still stand, as well as Rabaul. For this week I'll add a carrier, the SHINANO.

05-05-2004, 03:33 PM
there ya go Capn..

maybe this time we'll get a little action PF style http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

05-05-2004, 04:09 PM
I want anything, either for PF or the upcoming AEP add-on http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

05-05-2004, 05:13 PM
patch?!! &gt;sniff&lt; &gt;sniff&lt; ....

If you Smellellelellelelelllaaaahhh!!!
What the Rock is cookin' !!!

IS there going to be an AEP patch???

05-05-2004, 05:30 PM
I voted for carriers. Specifically, IJN carriers. Even more specifically, KAGA.

However, that AKAGI looks beautiful in Luthier's sig, so I'd like to see her, too. Curious to see if they were able to model her sloped flight deck. Another cool carrier to see would be the ZUIHO with her camo'd flight deck--ZUIKAKU too, I guess, and SHOKAKU. Might as well throw in the near sisters HIRYU and SORYU. How 'bout JUNYO? I always liked her angled funnel. Guess you might as well show RYUJO and RYUHO and SHOHO, too.

BTW, will the IJN carriers feature the green and red optical landing system?

I'm also looking forward to a "dazzle" camo'd ESSEX class carrier--long or short hull, doesn't matter.

Oh, and the HORNET, CV-8, to see if they have the differences between her and her sisters, ENTERPRISE and YORKTOWN--I guess to do that, we need to see them, too. Might as well see WASP (CV-7), I guess, and while we're at it you can throw in a few INDEPENDENCE class carriers. We've already seen a variation of LEXINGTON, and it'll be nice to see the SARATOGA with her reduced island. Maybe a few SANGAMON and CASABLANCA class carriers, too, to round things out.

I'm sure that'll be easy to whip together for Friday's update. Can't wait!

thats our easy going, un demanding, unflapable, mild mannered , well heeled community... we don't ask for much? do we? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif..hahah

05-05-2004, 06:06 PM
Did anyone say carrier?


05-05-2004, 06:43 PM
Fennec? ...

What do you know.. will there be an update featuring a carrier? ..

or are you being obtuse again.

05-05-2004, 07:04 PM
I voted for more maps, but Carriers are a very close second.

05-06-2004, 08:09 AM
I'd like to see:

Philippines Map with islands of Luzon, Leyte and Mindanao. It would facilitate DEC 41 - MAY 42 and 1944-1945 scenarios/missions.

Okinawa Map: Fend off kamikaze attacks in 1945. Could also possibly incorporate Royal Navy carriers and Fleet Air Arm aircraft.

05-06-2004, 01:17 PM
I'd like to see a variety of carriers, especially HMS Illustrious and the other RN carriers that were in the pacific.

Voted for carrier - launch/landing sequence to be precise would be really cool.

First things to ask for in order

1) Improvements in the sim, like the FMB

2) Maps

3) Ships

4) Aircraft

1) & 2)http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif are the most difficult to provide, at least it's been that way with IL2-FB up to now.

3) & 4)http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif there are third party guys who have Oleg's blessing to supply stuff, so you'll get these regardless.

So http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif we should ask for stuff we probably won't get much of.
