Well, it took me more than 3 months, but the template is now complete! It includes:
-Fully developed trees on the islands
-(As historical as possible) INDIVIDUAL BY-HAND PLACEMENT (yes, that took an ungodly long time) of all trees, stationary objects, stationary planes, as well as artillery and AAA.
-A realistic feel of flying over REAL landscapes
-and more!

FPS doesn't seem to be that bad actually. I'll do a test in a few minutes to confirm actual results. There are two reasons why I used the trees I did.

1. FPS is better with the European trees than palm trees
2. Midway's a lot greener than most people think:

That's gorgeous mate, looks beautiful whilst flying over it and the FPS was fine here - didn't even notice a drop.

Individual tree placement! That's just sick but man I'm glad your sick lol

Thanks EuroSnoopy!

Same here, FPS was not an issue. Barely dropped for me. My normal FPS on Midway is 32. I was getting 28 no problem.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

hey guys i just dowloaded the template and then it dawned on me I'v go NO idea on how to actually take a fly over it.

Do i put it in the mision folder's(net maybe?) i was going to have a go at it figuring it out but i have a very bad track record at screwin games up by messin with them so i thought id ask the pro's.

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

Kind of a bump (and a big thankyou to Boosh of course http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ) ...

And in answer to skarden above (as I was wondering the same having not done it before), I copied the following from the Normandy template readme (thanks to the TNT team for that):

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
To install this template Extract/Drag-n-Drop from the Zipfile the .mis and .properties files to:

"X"\Program Files\<b style="color:black;background-color:#a0ffff">Ubi[/b] Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\Missions\Net\(coop or dogfight, your choice)

where "X" represents to drive you installed Forgotten Battles on. ("C" by default)

Then you can select and edit it in FMB I presume?

<span class="ev_code_white">Oleg: I think players should upgrade their PC after the release of Storm of War: The Battle of Britain, but not now. Minimum system would be probably like last year good system for IL-2 series. The simulation has gone from what was to be a study sim involving one aircraft to a real monster anthology of WWII aviation. The engine has been stretched to fit multi-engined bombers, aircraft that are linked (such as the Mistel and the TB-3/I-16 combinations), aircraft carriers, runway cratering, working searchlights, etc.

Okay just to confirm my post a couple above in case anyone else is wondering. I put the files where the readme I quoted said. Opened FMB, loaded the file from where I'd put it. Then added a couple of planes and waypoints and saved as a mission in single missions. Can be flown straight from FMB or from Single Missions. Worked perfectly.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
