In the other Pacific maps like Tarwa, they have those useful coastal guns and 75mm but Iwo Jima still has those slow moving def guns. Just wondering if they will be replaced in Iwo Jima in 0.67

I hope they'll be replaced with something that was actually on Iwo Jima at the time of the battle. The Japanese did not have any 5-inch (?) guns on that mountain. It was a system of tunnels and catacombs linking together machine gun nests, mortar positions and rifle pits. And it was also a hell of a lot bigger.

I hope we get a real Iwo map someday.

I don't think dime will do any bigger changes since he knows the map must be remade from scratch

That's what I figured, but IMO it would be better to remove them entirely if the choices are either to leave them alone or replace them with something else.

I'm not a mapper but it seems there is more work than you think with removing statics, atleast that's the reason the factories and radar bunkers aren't removed.

That's the BF engine for you.

I agree. Something has to be done with the defguns on Iwo. Especially since the mountain can be owned by the one that's down below and the one on the mountain cannot hit it. I'd rather see it removed completely and more machine gun nests added.

They have to make new lightmaps to remove two objects out of several hundred?

Wow, that is strange.
