Please try this: simply open the map (online islands 8, I believe) up in the FMB and go to the "view" --> "destruction" menu. The areas of the map with palms trees will now be highlighted in bright green. Using the "F" key and your left mouse button, "paint" the areas of bright green along the coast so that they turn red. Be careful with the areas of bright green around the two airfields, as you will destroy buildings also if you paint these areas with the destruction brush. You will need to zoom in and use a very small brush size in these areas if you want to remove palm trees but not destroy structures. If you wish to totally eliminate palm trees, set the "destruction level" slider all the way to the right before you begin painting the bright green areas, otherwise they will just be "thinned out" some.

FPS should improve some and map will not look any different except at low altitude. However, FPS is still somewhat lower on this map due to the extensive forest areas.

Oleg asked us to report on the new map, so you can use this as a benchmark for how much FPS you are losing due to just the palm trees and not other factors.

-"3. We did more "rare" palms on the pacific online map for
-better FPS. So we would like to know your opinion about
-this decreasing is it enough?"
