How come nobody wants a pacific theatre add on? I think that would be the best, you dont see many WW2 sims with carriers...the least they could do is embed this into the game. Just having carriers to take off of would be great...plus a pacific theatre would be a lot of fun...a lot more fun than just dogfighting over a huge land mass in my opinion. So how come they're working on a theatre thats already been covered in other ww2 sims....i think it would be nice for some diversity...IL-2 has done a great job at that implementing aircraft i've never known about til i played the game...but the theatres arent unique

Pac would be better as its own full sim. There is alot of stuff there besides carriers. They could do B~29 stuff. They should do some Flying Tiger stuff too in China, and of course the Chinese I~16s and I~15s. You could just go round the world and they are all linked together these planes. I just hope if the BoB and the latter Oleg sims will all be compatible. Like sneaking a MiG into BoB. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif (in case you want a map from one sim in another)

Carriers can be fun to fly off of, but flying over endless amounts of water can be just as boring as endless miles of land. China would be fun though. The flying Tigers and the terrain they flew over would be a welcome change. Bad thing about carriers is trying to land when damaged. Not very forgiving lol. I can only imagine what would happen to japan if they put a B-29 in with the A-bomb lol. Would be cool to see one explode in the game.

Up to 10 post now with your new ID. I love when people build new troll identities.

We have plenty of water already. It would be nice to have more PTO planes and a couple of maps.

This is the first WWII flight sim i've played since aces of the pacific. Sturmovik has pulled me back into this genre only recently, (i just bought il-2 yesterday) I'm really impressed to the point where i'm gonna buy the expansion pack. I never buy expansion packs.

Anyway, that being said I'd love a pacific version of this game using the same engine or an improved one. The pacific conflict had some of the coolest planes, f-4u, the p-38, the f4 and f6. Not to mention the zero, and the george( can't remember it's designation, from what i've read the jap planes all were refered to after the zero with normal american names)

I am still having a very hard time with dirt landing, (hence my name) I would love to see my wing dipping and hitting the deck and dragging me off into the ocean... lol..

I think the best landing trainer is the IL~2. Also, it seems to be tough enough to land anywhere without much bumping around. Smooth as silk it is.

After you do okay landing on airfields, practice on the straight parts of roads. In The Patch they made it so its not bumpy like off road. Its just like landing in a pumpkin patch it is.

Watch the I~16, I~153 and Hurricane, cos if you pull too much negative gee, engine will stop. But you can start them again, well at least in a dive anyway. Hurricane is easy to re~start.

I'm not sure what happens. Some of the time I'm coming in perfect, about 200, 150 feet, nose down, gear out and flaps down. I flare up, hit the strip without bouncing. Then I just sort of start veering to the left, hitting the rudder to straighten out only seems to make it worse. Next thing I know my left wing is digging into the ground and my plane is heading of the runway. Usually not a lot of damage done to the plane but quite a bruised ego. I can imagine yuri and dmitri and the guys puffing away on cigs and swilling vodka laughing at me.

Not sure if this happens with any other plane than the LAG-3. That's as far as I've gotten so far. Did one mission with the mig and died shortly after take off from a stall heh.

The Pacific is already being successfully recreated in FB, the arrival of the Zeros will just make it all the more realistic.

Also while Carriers would be good one day you do not need them to recreate important combat areas, in the Pacific.

While Carriers did decide some major sea Battles there was much more to the Pacific War than that.
Whole Campaigns where conducted with out the Use of Aircraft Carriers.
New Guinea, Burma, Indo China, etc

The Pacific Theatre, sounds good. But I still miss some of the forgotten battlefields and one we haven't seen so far is the Mediterranian or one taking place in western Europe early in the war or in Norway for that matter, why not get these and then the ones we already have seen in many other sims/games later?
I know the market for the famous battlefields are the largest, since many had family-members figthing there, but I find the others more interresting..

Not that you don't make a good point, because you do! However, these guys are after the largest amount of cash they can make per title, plain and simple. To think otherwise would be short sighted.

Having said that, clearly the ETO ala BOB etc. is going to bring in more cash right off the bat than MTO so the bean counters say. We all know that the bean counters make the decisions on what and when to make capital investment and the return that it will bring. It's more of an economic choice than anything else. I mean its not like they 'care' about Norway, the MTO or ETO, they just want the most cash period.

Agreed, but they made the Il-2 Sturmovik simulating aerial combat on the Eastern Front, by doing so they showed that they were ready to take a chance, and lets hope they would do that again..
