    Corsair + Zero (even AI Zero) will be epic for me and I hope that a full fidelity Zero comes eventually as there is enough information around to get it done I think.

      That is precisely why I posted what I did. I would be in favor of a more modern era map that can be used now and the WWII era map - pre invasion that Hiromachi is asking for - later when at least the Corsair becomes available.

        Is Pearl Harbor on this map? Would be an amazing campaign starter. Scrambling from a nearby field, flying over battleship row watching the attack take place, script in a gunner on a battleship (Dory Miller) shooting down an enemy plane.

          There are more than 3200 NM of mostly open ocean between Pearl Harbor and the Marianas...

                What is the word on the Marianas Islands Map? It was announced back in January and here it is August and it hasn't dropped. Whats become of it? The photos ED showcased led me to believe the maps was about ready to go.

                  From the first screenshots to an Early Access release can be years, depending on the module. Showcased map photos usually mean that one area (out of a vast region) is good enough to show what it might look like when it's finished. Who knows what it looks like just out of the field of view of camera.

                  The CEO announced in Mid-April (ref: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=269757 ) that the Marianas was "Mid-term" which was clarified to mean "it might be delivered in less than 9 months". From mid-April, that means it might be by the end of the year.

                  The key word is "might".

                  Given covid-19, the major summer push on bugs, the general delays on software and Hofstadters law, I would consider this to be a very optimistic might.

                    In the GR interview with Simon, I think he said it was pushed back to the end of the year or Q1-2021.

                        They say "end of year or first months of next one"

                          The cliche 'it will be ready when it is ready' always stands. I want it like everyone else, but they say patience is a virtue.

                            It helps being a rotorhead, to develop that virtue of patience. It takes so dang long to get anywhere!!

                              I have no illusions about why this map is slow to finish... It is free.
