THIS is what's really needing in the gaming market today, a badass WW2 Pacific operational game. Even better, set it up as a campaign. (And no, Order of Battle: Pacific does not count. While a good game, it's not a good sim.)
ever tried this?
I've got WITP. Great game. More strategic than operational, IMO. To me, operational carrier games go by real time or hours. WITP is more like days.
I'm thinking of a game more on the line of the old Carrier Strike, where surviving ships could appear in later battles, or sunken ships could sorta live again as renamed Essex class, etc...
However, I do not see why this Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations could not have an expac focused on carriers from 1920 to 1945. The interwar period and WW2 would be cool.
