Been tooling throught the FMB maps and noticed a massive amount of trees growing in the water around the southern air strip. Also, the northern strips are in the water. Just wondering if anyone in the know can tell me if this is correct or a bug. I guess the strips are for seaplanes but the trees? Hmmm.

Palau does have alot vegetation growing on small coral information sticking out of water. Scuba Diving is awesome there.

Yup
Any of several tropical evergreen trees or shrubs of the genus Rhizophora, having stiltlike roots and stems and forming dense thickets along tidal shores.

@Feathered! Found this picture in an old book, "Carrier War" printed 1945. Is it possible to make an in game picture of the same place?

Big pic and sorry no scanner.

The forests need to go closer to the water on most PF maps.
