The problem is that Magnitude seems don't notice that they potentially have a golden mine under theor nose....
Some screen every four month are the worst marketing that they could made....

I am always surprised when people see secrecy and surprise as an universally good marketing tactic. That might work when you have a million followers eagerly waiting for your next product, or an equally big budget for advertising.

Nobody has made a Pacific War sim since 2004(!). The F4U could be a good opportunity to bring new people into DCS, from the civil sim world and others. But people must know about your plans to get excited. Currently we only know that M3L will eventually release the F4U-1D someday, is making a carrier that never operated F4U-1Ds and that their follow on module will not be something that fits the Corsair, but a F8 Crusader.

It's hard to see any coherent plan. Are the carrier and Corsair just leftovers from previous more grandiose plans? With the same effort they could have made a Korean war/late WW2 F4U-4 and Essex class CV to expand the DCS Korea plane set, instead of starting something new.

Yeah, I would love to see some ww2 carriers and planes for the Pacific theater.

Actually I'm surprised they haven't done it yet. It would obviously sell well in the US and I think most European players would be interested in the Pacific, too.

Water looks good in DCS right now, the current crappy weather system is perfectly fine for the Pacific and even the maps would probably be easier to develop since they could include some small islands and vast areas of the ocean for realistic carrier but also land-based missions.

And there's no competition. Honestly, it's hard to think of a single reason why we're still waiting for the Pacific theater.

Just based on the reception of the Hornet and Tomcat, I would think that it would be pretty clear to the folks at ED that a WWII carrier and some carrier based a/c would be a huge seller

A man can only wish, and dream an believe... Me personally would love a Korean war carrier and corsair, would kill for a panther or a banshee. Then again like Razor says, a CVE and Corsair is the next best thing even if only F4-1s...

I'm right there with ya Baco!! A straight deck Essex class or maybe a Commencement Bay class CVE would work great for a Corsair, preferably a -4 or better yet, a -4B but any ol'd Hawg will do for me.

Like Baco, I'd do just about anything for a Panther, Banshee or best of all, a good old AD-4 and a map of the Korean penninsula.

yeah, I personally would like to see some Japanese carrier vs US carrier action. Would add more dynamics to the game. Would have to manage fuel and navigation well, be able to fight and then land on a carrier!

Also searching for the enemy fleet would be really fun.

While it would be great to see I don't expect ED to create one any time soon since they are still working on European Theater units.

They are also working on the Nimitz class carrier module and the Arleigh Burke and an update to the Kuznetsov so I guess they are quite busy for a while. Plus at the moment there are no aircraft that we can fly that operate from a carrier.

We will probably have to wait for the Corsair to be released first to see any development on the Pacific Theater let alone a carrier.

I am quite sure that you are absolutely correct on that assumption. However that does not mean we should not continue to express our opinions and/or desires here in the WWII forum so that ED will be aware that there is a strong interest in this sublect. And, by the way, carriers and Corsairs operated in theaters other than just the Pacific.
