http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif HAHAHA it worked. I was feeling bad about the (severe) fps hits the palm trees were giving on Onwhine Island 8 map, and decided to try to DESTROY them all with the object Destruction Slider in FMB. My fps doubled.

In FMB the Destruction slider is under View and you must slide Brush Size to maximum and Destruction Level to maximum and hold down the "F" key while dragging mouse around the entire map--red colour shows destroyed area. It works, every palm tree taken out of the map. Gone, *poof* just like that. No palm trees at all, not even rotting logs. The Destruction Level must be set high or the palm trees are not affected, only some buildings.

After you do that, with Notepad or something, open the mission *text* file that you are using Onwhine Island 8 for and see the millions of palm trees listed that are eliminated. I assume you can replace any lost buildings with objects in FMB.

I just do offwhine. Sorry to hear about the MP thing not working out. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Still, it works for the offwhiners, which is significant, as the palm trees had forced me to consider doing *all* Pacific missions using that small island map with Gulf of Finland islands. Now I can use this new map too.

..anyway, that small onwhine Finland island map would be better for Wake or Midway as they were flat coral islands with no mountains (I think http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif ) .

Shame if it doesn't work online but maybe it's a lot of destruction you have to load when joining - they should make a new "less palms edition" for onliners! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

S!

"So when Diogenes perceived that he was greatly excited and quite keyed up in mind with expectancy, he toyed with him and pulled him about in the hope that somehow he might be moved from his pride and thirst for glory and be able to sober up a little. For he noticed that at one time he was delighted, and at another grieved at the same thing, and that his soul was as unsettled as the weather at the solstices when both rain and sunshine come from the very same source."

(Dio Chrysostom "Discourse" 4.77-78)

If it was up to me, i`d leave some palm trees along the coast, cause they look damn good and make most of the island sand-looking with some trees on the hills. Would be priceless http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You may be able to put some back using the Palm Tree objects in FMB. They have placeable palm tree clusters, not just individual trees.


PS:: if the e~mailed mission does not work, its cos something happened to it on the way. Use the Destruction slider. I am using Patch 1.22.

PSS:: Just noticed tonight also...mysteriously with Patch 1.22, the Zero can now start engines off the official FB airports now. Before it could not.

crazy I sent you another one...

I restored all objects in the region right around the airfields, this includes palm tree objects very near the field amongst the buildings. So now you don't have to see burnt out hangars and busted fuel tanks. And you get the trees next to the field too. Awsum.

In the FMB, clicking the Destruction feature shows destroyed regions in red, the restored regions in green.

I can't compare that screenshot with the Onwhine Island 8, so maybe we are getting a New Map. Hopefully its full size 200km x 160km. Probably not. Maybe that Aqua colour is what needs DirectX~9

You may not want to have palm trees along the "beaches" because the beaches take up so much border relative to contained land area. That's alot of palm trees. However, I do enjoy the palm trees surrounding the airfields.

I think it works for co-ops, but not for dogfight servers.

p.s., palm trees were not that prevalent in the Pacific. Only in the mooovies.

ON my Burma Road and and Defence of Rangoon maps (both on the Kuban map) I put the Palm tree objects at various spots around the spawn point on bases and near ground targets. Not lots of them, but enough to help with the atmospherics...really helps with the immersion.....
