~ Mission 3, Attack on Wake Island.

You are using onwhine island 5 map for the flat Wake island?

Can you use FMB Destruction slider to Destroy the palm tree objects in the onwhine Pacific map for onwhine use? It works for offwhine missions--nothing left--not even rotting logs. Leave the palm trees aroung the airfield though, they do look cool and those few are not enough to really kill framerates.

Just a Whine here, but I bet the darker green "classic" forests of old FB are more real Pacific jungle than the "new" lime green forests of Pacific map. Not sure though, never flew over the jungles but I have trimmed millions of *ugh* palm trees and they are dark~dark green and I HATE PALM TREES even if they didn't kill a single framerate.

With all Due respect Lexx I think you should first fly the Mission for Attack On Wake Island, before commenting, on what map was used.
S!

Speaking of the destruction tool I can only get it too work in the grids that have townships, or buildings If I get away from the cicilian structures I can't wipe away tree's. is that normal??

I'll fetch those missions today at home sounds great!

Have you checked your Private Topics recently? (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=ugtpc&s=400102)

You can wipe the trees. I just tried it--first time since I got the AEP. Don't know if it will work for you onwhiner fellas/fellattes though--ask crazyivan.

Slide up the brush size all the way and slide up the Destruction slider all the way. This will let you easily wipe all objects from the whole map (holding down "F" key while moving mouse). To get the airfield buildings back, then slide the Destruction slider all the way back down and reduce the brush size to just large enough so you can easily brush the area around the airfields. This puts the buildings (and palm trees) back on the airfields. Most of the palm trees are gone over all islands, thus saving framerates.

In your new mission file, you will see 64 pages of palm tree objects that are destroyed [see bold examples at bottom of mission below]. At about 50 palm trees a page, this gives about 3200 palm trees Destroyed.

btw...this mission starts two Zeros on the flat interior of a volcanic crater on the North island. Its Awsum cool watching AI takeoff and clear the crater walls. You can't do this without Destroying the palm trees, as I think the crater came filled with them. But we can fix that. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif If you make it Flyable, careful taking off on rough ground. To make changes to aircraft, click on the final waypoint, cos if you click on the takeoff or "1" waypoint then you risk changing the rather tight exact takeoff position/direction (there are dangerous crater walls and FB forests nearby).

Landing inside the crater is uber Fun. Full landing flaps, gear down, and maybe even engine OFF. (Zero can start engine away from official FB airfields--beware that some early WAR aircraft and jets can not)

Sounds Interesting Lexx , I may try that one and rework the Pearl Harbour Mission Island and re release that mission, again later.
Most of the Empire of the Sun Missions do not take place on the Pacific Map, though some do.
Like the Destruction of Force Z, that happens off shore.
As an example the New Guinea missions use the Kuban Map, very similiar Terrain.

Incidently the next 5 missions will be,

6. Evacuation of the Phillipines
7. Operation C the Indian Ocean Raid.
8. US Navy Stealth Operation
9. First of the New Guinea Missions ( that Saburo Sakai took part in)
10.Bombing Raid on Darwin Northern Australia
( The Spitfire fans will like this one)

Those next 5 missions will be re done over the next 7 to 10 days.

Cheers
