I really would like to see either an add-on to this game, or a new game, that focuses on the Solomon Islands/New Guinea theatres of operation, where you can fly USAAF, USN, USMC, RAAF, and RNZAF planes against the IJN and IJAAF. I find the PF campaigns and maps woefully short on realism and depth (lack of planes, maps, ships, etc.) I long for a game that has Sturmovik-like realism mixed with an Aces Of the Pacific-like attention to detail. I'd like to bomb Wakde, or replay the Battle of the Bismarck Sea, or conduct missions over Rabaul. This is a fascinating theatre of operations, being so unique, and yet it is virtually ignored in the video game community...what a pity.


I guess I'm gonna turn this into somewhat of a rant: The closest server to this idea is the Wildcat vs. Zeke one (or somesuch), but dangit, everyone flocks to the wildly unrealistic dogfight servers instead. It sucks that so few people enjoy a server w/ cockpit-only views, and stuff for mudmovers to blow up. Argh, I hate dogfight-only servers!!!

I recommend using Lowengrin's DCG program.

Banzai would probably be something you would be interested in. Wings over Waves and Wings over Jungles are great also.
