I'd like to see more Pacific maps based on fighting on the interior of islands. While the original Iwo Jima, Wake and FH's Tarawa work out nicely, Guadalcanal sucked terribly and the Philippines had little if anything to do with the actual battle.

I think there's too many amphibious invasion maps in FH in general, and not all Pacific battles (ie Guadalcanal) are well represented when trying to cram the whole island into one map.

That sounds like a good idea. I mean we have Iwo Jima right now represented on a Island sightly larger then a football field. A Push map would be great since it would represent the "Meat Grinder" part perfectly. Although I do enjoy Tarawa and those kinds of maps theres no reason every Pacific map is mostly water with a tiny Island. I think there shoul be some maps focused on the Naval Aspects and others on the ground pounders.

The other thing missing form Iwo are the Jap artillery, sort of represented by the Def guns but the def guns are obvious targets and die so quick,

My biggest gripe with the Pacific maps is their ridicilous scale. Why do you always have to have the whole island covered in the same map? That vanilla BF had maps like Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima doesn't mean that FH should continue along the same lines. Smaller inland jungle maps would be awesome for infantry combat - there really is no reason to cover the whole island at once. It's not like we have the whole city of Berlin or all the D-Day beaches as one map either.

Maybe in the center of the sun. I rarely even scratch them when I'm on land, and hitting them from a ship is no easy tast, especially when they are firing back at you.

I think their HP could be lowered a bit.

FH is a realism mod, so no Type 100 smg at 1944, this gun was still in experiment period....still testing in 1945, the Japs concluded that they did not want to arm with smg so the Jap have only used something like little mp28......

Braun Sure guadalcanal Sucks dink but phllipines although maybe its not realistic, is a very fun map to play so why go and make alll realistic and boring to play

The Philippine Invasion is a very fun map, I was saying Guadalcanal sucks. The problem with the Philippine map, in the context of this mod, is that it has virtually nothing to do with the actual invasion of the islands except: -the Japanese are attacking -the US have torpedo boats

The map completely disregards the fact that: -most of the fighting took place in the jungles of Luzon, the biggest of the islands -the only Marines who fought during the campaign were at Corregidor, the Philippine Army did most of the fighting along with the help of the US Army and National Guard -the Japanese had overwhelming air superiority

Sheesh I post an Idea or two and you all go off and blab about your own show some respect for my ideas, and stop posting your own in mine. I was looking for feedback not another topic. "sorry if that sounded mean." I think arty is needed in the Pacific because it's not realistic not to have it. It was used alot in the pacific theater when battles got too fare inland for ship to shore attacks to work, they supplied the Marines, and Japanese with their own mobile arty shure it was small at best but it would be realy fun to open up some small cannons on some japs, or US Marines and blast them sky high. I like your Idea about the less water in the Pacific though that would be cool, do maps based on the battles that took place on the Islands and off them not both at the same time.
