What up folks, No that we've all seen the new Tarawa map you probably agree with me that this map just looks amazing,especially the new created objects. Now I think that the pacific theatre in FH should get some new maps with the great quality of Tarawa because I think there are still too less pacific maps in FH and a few of them need a little face-lift: Guadalcanal: A very famous and significant battle in the south pacific. Now I think almost the whole map is still DICE so I think you should redo this map. Add some of the new custom objects and very important add a lot more Jungles/trees to create a good ambiente. And make some more hills on the map (DICE one is too much on one level). Philippines: I think FH is still using the DICE one too,basically not even a bad map,unfortunately no server runs it. Would be good if you could redo this one too. Or I think you could create a new map about the reconquest of the phillipines,I think that was a grand parachute invasion (but not sure) to liberate the Philippines. I think the other pacific maps like Makin,Saipan or Adak are really good and don't need a major improvement (except the huge lag on Makin) Now here's my suggestion about the pacific maps that should be created sometime,because they were major and significant battles in WWII: Pearl Harbor 1941: "Commander Fuchida led the first wave of torpedo bombers against the US Pacific Fleet ships at anchor in Pearl Harbor. Their first objective was to strike at the battleships. " Fall Of Hong Kong 1941 (as soon as the Chinese troops are added to FH): "Japanese forces began the invasion of the New Territories of Hong Kong, from occupied China, on December 8th at 0800. Eliminating this Allied naval base was a priority. Most of the territory was captured by the evening of December 9th. The poorly equipped British and Commonwealth garrison forces surrendered on December 25th." Burma 1942: "Japanese attacks into Burma surprised the Allies and a rout ensued. The aggressive campaign inexorably pushed the British, American, Chinese and Burmese units, based in Burma, into India and cut their land route into southern China. " Battle Of Leyte 1944: "After debating the merits of different directions in the summer, the US chose to liberate the Philippines as its next strategic objective. The island of Leyte was the initial target. Japan viewed holding Leyte as a priority and General Yamashita was tasked with ensuring its defense. MacArthur came ashore on the first day of the assault and issued his famous address to the Filipinos: "I have returned..." After two months of intensive battle, US forces had effectively completed the capture of the island." Battle Of Okinawa 1945: "Operation Iceberg, the US invasion of Okinawa, involved over 450,000 troops and 1200 transports in what was the largest naval operation mounted in the Pacific. About 130,000 Japanese troops defended the island from entrenched positions and they proved a formidable obstacle. Kamikaze attacks against the American naval forces also took a heavy toll. Almost all the Japanese defenders were killed, as well as about 42,000 of the 450,000 civilians on the island. Only 10,755 were taken prisoner. US casualties amounted to 12,500 killed and 35,500 wounded. " Alright,that's about all about my suggestion.If you have any other major battles in the pacific just post them here and lets hope that the devs take a look in here:) cheers
in the Battle of Okinawa, that was the first time the japanese bomber with the OKA was deployed not Iwo Jima
i would love to see the fight for the Burma Road
if the devs are crazy and listen to me, they can make a map about "the invansion that never happen" or the "D-DAY of the Pacific" :p
and ur image links not working
I think Hong kong should be a Japanese vs Canadian map.
I like most of the idea's, but the British/Aussies should be in the Hong Kong one.
Sounds good and OMG R4DG Your avatar hahahaha!
I agree mostly.
Right now i think Guadalcanal should be deleted.The only pacific maps should be
Tarawa Iwo Jima Wake Aluetians Makin Saipan
That should do, we realy need more maps focusing on the forgotten theatres like the mediteranian.
guadalcanal needs redoing, its a goose chase map like other pacific maps but guadalcanal is larger making the goose chase far more annoying
Makin and Saipan aren't great maps, so I think if more Pacific maps mean more like them, then I can do without them. I'd rather play Guadalcanal over them any day, because while it has its faults, it's nowhere near as boring and uninspired a flag chase as Makin or Saipan. And it looks better.
Some good suggestions, though I don't see why you need Chinese forces for Hong Kong or Burma road, seeing as they were British/Commonwealth battles. Don't think Pearl Harbour would make much of a map either, but people have gone over this before.
I think more pacific maps of tarwa quility and we will have some really good maps based in the pacific.
Scrap the philipenes also for now, it sucks.
