As we all know,many islands did not have just flat beaches along their coasts. Many had rocky outcroppings and cliffs instead. AFAIK,there are none like this in FB,though we do have some mountains. Overall,I'd say the terrain in FB is fairly tame(which I guess it should be given the locations it focuses on). This is probably a redundant question,but will we see more radical terrain changes when appropriate or are there some sort of terrain engine limitations? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm right with you, Necro.
Aleutians, ChiChi Jima, Rabaul,
All had "cliffs and bluffs" and I hope we get all of them.
I hope there are active volcanoes on Rabaul, too. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Rabaul is one I am definitley keen to see.. A bit of smoke from Tuvurvur would always be nice.

There is one lonely costal cliff object in FB, but it's supposed to have a castle atop it. If you got really creative, you could make a costline using it.

Perhaps cliffs are better as Objects, because then they can then be placed where they need to be, or removed if the mission builder wished to build a harbour instead.

Rgr Rabaul - with Tuvurvur would be really nice. It presneted a bit of danger for some pilots when doing lower level bomb runs then having to pull up over it.
