folks,

i saw the latest list of maps in PF and noticed that atleast 3 important (IMHO) maps (islands) are still missing. I am talking about Truk, Marcus Island and Kwajalein, the largest coral atoll in the world. Marcus wasn't that important i guess but there was quite a battle at Kwajalein and i guess i don't have to explain why Truk is important. It's the Jap Pearl Harbor so to speak.
There is a great full color WW2 docu called "The Fighting Lady". Where all of these 3 maps are featured. It would be realyl a shame if PF wouldn't have these maps included.

well, in that WIP list from the french previews are already a lot of "Island with lot of water around" kind http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

i personally would look for a NewGuinea Map with PortMoresby/Lae/Buna on it - bit that would be propably to huge http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

the reported NG map looks like to have "only" the MinleBay" and sourroundings on it

Yeah, the last thing PF needs after looking at the map list is another atoll. One is pretty much the same as any other.

More of New Guinea would be a far better use of map dev time. More of the CBI as well.

@ Franky. Agreed, Port Moresby and Lae are important parts of New Guinea and i'd like to see them in the game as well.

@Tater. Trust me pal, Truk and the Kwajalein atoll hardly look like any other atoll in the pacific. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I know, I posted pictures of etan at truk in my airfield pictures threads. Regardless, they are still less important in a lot of ways than the stomping grounds of the 5th AF given the prepoderance of central pacific (ie: navy carrier targets) maps in the list we've seen.

Just ordered "The Fighting Lady" this past weekend, looking forward to it. And the Wildcat manual! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
