Please consider either:

1. changing the damaged state for trees to make them FAR harder to destroy (minimum 500lb bomb or soemthing)

2. Make an indestructible version of the groups of trees (the 4 deciduous trees (winter and summer), and at least one of the clumps of palm trees, ideally 1 clump of each type of palm tree (there are 2 species of palm trees in game).

This would be really nice since we have to add so bloody many trees to maps to makle dispersals, etc, and a single plane can wipe out all that work, it's very frustrating.

Agree. And please give us more tall trees. FAP trees seem way too small to me.
At least give us them in SoW http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You can see the trees placed along the "stacked poly" forest edge here. They are required to give pilots some idea where the edge of the trees are lest they hit them while strafing/bombing. A single bomb does zero damage to the "stacked-poly" forest, but will eleiminate virtually all of the palm trees marking the edge. On top of that, as you say, the trees are not tall enough to reach the top of the "stacked-poly" forest.

Sorry just had to throw that in there. I'll never find another thread where it's appropriate.

haha, too true.
About the trees, i think their DM is way overmodeled.
I've been skipping .50's into their soft underbellies with the 47, and they still wont blow up!
But jokes aside...well this post doesn't really apply to me, but hey, a bump's a bump!
