I could only suggest that PF could concentrate on the early years of the war: 1941 to 1943. The scope of this theatre is so huge it would impossible to represent the entire armada of a.c
flown by USMC, USAAF, USN, IJN, IJAAF, New Zealand, Australia, China, Phillipines (those lovely P-26s), and the RAF. There could be a great opportunity to represent the battle of Guadalacanal, all the operations up The Slot, Wake Island, Midway, New Guinea, Rabaul,even the AVG. A second game (PF2?) could concentrate on the last years of the war and the later models of aircraft. There is so much to consider I don't think it can be done all in one game. The PTO offers so many different types of missions to be flown, static campaign types can be really varied and interesting. Your choice of fighter, dive-bomber, torpredo-bomber (USN or IJN), army fighter, army bomber (1e or 2e), based on a carrier or on land. Take your pick. The front-line fighters and bombers have to be represented and we should have the ability to fly all of them, from the Zero-Sen to the SBD. The limiting of the game for the first years could set the precedence for the a second game, but the first game has to be done right, all the little things matter, from comms., to landing, proper markings and color, water representation, island foliage, shorelines, coast-watchers, friendly natives who helped downed US pilots, etc. etc. etc.

Sorry heywoood, my venomous sarcasm has a day off today.


acs1,

It's a good idea generally, but the project is going to be the whole war. A lot of the things you're offering like radio comms, foliage, natives etc are way outside of the scope of any project we could do - however planes and maps are not.

I think we will actually have enough maps, ground objects, ships and plane variants to provide for fun missions in any year of the war.
