Google Maps cannot find state flags in their former places location
I haven’t experienced that problem. The only possibility I can think of is that you have flags that are not part of the standard kiwitrees download package. That would mean they are not in kiwitrees/modules_v4/googlemaps/places/. I hope you haven’t deleted / thrown away the old modules_v3 folder completely! Compare that folder with the one in modules_v3 and see what is missing. If you then send those to me I will add them to the core files for the next release.
