Please make sure the map is 80% jungle. The wide flat FB European River Plains massacre Oleg's beautiful forest/jungle terrain by cutting them into wide flat plains. If you must restrict the number of Rivers to only one or two of the very largest rivers in Burma, then do what it takes as we need lots of jungle. Please don't let the flat open FB European River Plains cut the Asian jungle into 70% open plain like what happened on the PF maps.

Crash Landing -- I wish Pacific Fighters "jungle" maps were more jungle than FB European open plain for the reason that finding a crash land landing spot over jungle should be a challenge. Then, you must bail as the FB game engine blows you up if you try to crash land in forest/jungle texture. This is a great challenge if there are large expanses of forest/jungle.

The most beautiful thing about Oleg's maps is (1) mountains like Kuban map and (2) large expanses of solid forest texture like on the Lvov map. I lvove that so much!! 80% Forest sounds impressive. Thanks!!

Why? It's a mistake to think of Burma as only thick jungle. There is jungle there, but not everywhere. I mentioned this earlier on the ORR thread I think Edit: I must have mentioned this somewhere else http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif (I was in Pagan and Rangoon in 1984).

The Irrawaddy in Burma:

I found this:

"The Irrawaddy rises in the north near Fort Herz and flows down the centre of the country, being joined by its tributary, the Chindwin, near Pakkoku south of Mandalay, and on to the delta at Rangoon. Its central course is across a wide plain which receives little rainfall during the May-October monsoon and is baked dry in the dry season."

As always, you are right. We should think of Burma as only 80% jungle. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Basically, the problem we have is that whatever jungle areas there are should be *jungle* and not shredded into tiny texture clumps because of the wide open FB European River Plains.
