It's a great map...but....

 Wonder if you can play any semi-authentic missions on Japanese side on this map. Americans bombed everyting to dust...and then then the naval bombardment did the rest. Or am I wrong?

Indeed.
I'm afraid that like most of Pto maps this one is made more for US point of view than japanese one.

Maybe some skilled mission/campain maker will make us something interresting from the japanese point of view...well maybe not 100% authentic but least close to it.

I think SAS~Gerax's missions are made for Us side too.

If you assume this map is not Palau but the island of Yap. (A simular island just to the east) Then there are possibilities for Japanese  (limited) missions. From Yap there were bomber missions flown when the Americans attacked the Marianes. Also fighters from Yap put up some resistance when the island was bombed. Of course it did not last long. Then the island was "bypassed" with no effective resistance left.  Info is not hard to find on wiki. After that the island of Yap was used  for bombing practice. The Japanese still on the island with no food or aa ammo left... Other bypassed islands like Wake were used for this purpose too. I never understood why Palau is in the game because it is not interesting for the air war. It was just bombed to dust without any serious resistance.

But there is no need for a seperate map....just call Palau Yap and everything is ok..:-) (Geografical differences are not important)

Ok so we should have a unified Palau/Yap. Maybe Slikk could make it for us...

The other solution is to tart missions from the air. For Exemple for Tokyo Pnay Club, a campain using Iwo Jima and Kyushu map, most of misions start on the air, as at that time there was no map with Iwo and Kyushu on the same time. But the missions are pretty good. Excellent campain from Phil_K. Maybe we could have the same for Palau.

I would be VERY pleased to have japanese campains/missions for this map.....please Mr SAS~Gerax, i know you are skilled for that  :P ;)

Well, i'm working on other projects now. Take gimp or o your Photoshop and erase it, it's gonna take you 4 minutes, you have 4-5 files to change, a work of 1 hour. That's easy to do.

Hi guys.

B29 Superfortress  The road to Japan  PART 2 is here :

B-29 Superfortress The road to japan - Part 2

Hope you will like this.

This time the story is closer to the crews of B29s and a little bit sadder, less heroic than part 1.

Put the sound loud and take you popcorns.

Too many for a single life.
Marianas, Hawaii, finish the desert textures, Okinawa/Kyushu V2, Korea....what else ?  ::) ::)

I have a project of movies about bombers over Germany, so to make it realistic for a movie I will have to repaint the Berlin map. Same for Normandy, i have some movies in mind about D-Day and airborn missions by night, the bombing of Caen...

In case you didn't know but Dancing Bear is retexturing the Berlin map already. I like the way he adds snow on the fields.
