I'm over the moon with the announcement of PW but I was wondering.

In FB (AEP), fans have simulated to a degree the pacific war by creating missions/campaigns using the island8 map, japanese models (A6M2, A6M5, Ki84 (3)) with custom skins & say using the B-239 with custom hellcat skins.

I wonder how much more PW will have to offer in features apart from new aircraft models & maps??

Het Stud,
That's a BIG "I wonder"
Luthier has been sharing facts/ dropping hints/ answering questions like a fiend lately, if you read through some posts, you'll likely get an answer to some of your questions.
In a word. there'll be alot of improvments!

I would say that the Pacific Island Map in FB has helped developers learn about Frame Rates and better Online Connectivity for Multiplayer.

That would probably be the biggest advantage of PF over FB, apart from Usable Aircraft Carriers for both sides, which of course means Carrier Campaigns as well as the Land Campaigns in the Pacific.
Also the numbers of Flyable Bombers in PF apparently will be a bonus over FB as well.

I think the best part about PF though is we no longer have to immitate the Pacific theatre in FB.
We will have the Theatre with a range of new aircraft and ships, that we no longer have to immitate.
Also depending on what the developers of PF do, we may also have aircraft that you would never see in FB, unless you purchased PF of course.
