There will be:

Overhead rain can, main multifunction shower head, toe tester on a diverter valve with volume control.
4 body sprays with volume control.
In other words:
4 body sprays
1 toe tester
3 volume controls
1 temperature control.
Price Pfister helped design the 3/4" thermostatic system and it did take me a while (to design it) since the body sprays needed a balanced manifold and I had to figure out how I could get all three heads and body sprays to work at once. My water pressure is around 70-80 psi, which helped and I've enlarged the shower footprint from 60" to 72" therefore 2 people can comfortably shower at once but if everything is on at once with all volume controls on full, you'll empty the hot water tank quickly. I don't see the reason to have all fixtures on at once but I wanted that option. The diverter itself will allow up to two different fixtures on at once.
It took me maybe (diy'er) 15-20 hrs to measure, cut, clean, thread, install, sweat, secure, and test the whole system.
Oh and thanks for the comment Purron.
