The LOD on the rocks is a little low, but probably my VR settings. There’s lot of little places to explore, so this is just fantastic as a free map. They could have definitely charged for this, so great to see.
CA will be interesting, as the map is either hills, solid towns/houses or solid trees, so for ground combat I’m sort of curious if the land path-finding will work ok on this one. Syria and PG have some nice open areas for tanks, while this one not so much.
It’s sort of a more extreme tree version of Cypress in a way, and all the rock work reminds me of that.
The downside with that is that it starts on the Carrier with 10 broken LOD static F/A-18C’s in front of you, so not ideal. I was looking for something where it flew over and I could record unattended.
I’ve used the Hornet Free Flight and started recording for 60 seconds here (just past the fleet), as the flight goes over the entire island from sea to sea (I set RALT, ATC and ATTH so I can reproduce it again):
I think the tree and details sliders are dynamic now, so you can do them in-game without even leaving the cockpit? It would be interesting to fiddle with those and see what benefit you get. There’s certainly a lot of trees
