Are these maps still going to be completed? I hope complaints about Adak didn't cause them to be scrapped because the atmosphere of Adak is great. It's only the combat that suffers some.

How about no, since there were no Japanese left on Kiska and Attu when the US invaded? Not being rude or anything, but its true. The US invasion of Kiska cost the US something like 40 casualties - because of friendly fire. When they got there, it was deserted. The Japanese did launch an attack on Adak Island once, but it caused no damage (and I believe it was only from the air).

Fighting on Attu lasted for 19 days. It was very bloody. This is a picture of japanese soldiers after a 600 man banzai charge. Here's the page I got it from. http://www.hlswilliwaw.com/aleutians/attu-homepage.htm

WOW. I guess Attu would make a good map. But I think Kiska would be fairly boring.

Personally I've never understood why so many folks dislike Adak. I've always felt it was one of the best FH has to offer.

I, too, love Adak. And a map that fixed the complaints people have with it while keeping the overall atmosphere would be a great idea.

Rad was working on those maps but they are kinda on hold for the moment. Attu was nearly finished once but then he had a HDD error and lost everything. :(
