  • Poll: What map do you want for Alpha?

    We are getting ready to host a custom map for Alpha. As was stated before, the purpose of the map is to help in moving players from a seeder mission like Domination to a more tactical mission with some spice and variety. Then move return to the stock maps and the seeder missions. There will be a process posted on the use of the map but first lets look at the options!

    Behind door number one is:

    Isola di Capraia

    Download Link

    From Armaholic:
    It became Genoese in 1527 and was strongly fortified.
    In 1796 it was occupied for a short time by Horatio Nelson.
    Part of the island was formerly occupied by an agricultural penal colony, but it was shut down in 1986.
    Most of the island has been made into a national park.

    "Most of the island has been made into a national park."
    That is what they want us to believe, but the truth...

    Map size : 10x10 km
    Isola di Capraļa : 8x4 km
    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _

    On the other side of door number two we have:

    Emita City

    Download Link

    From Armaholic:
    Description:
    Emita City is a 5x5km island.

    It contains a city that is approximatly twice the size of Zargabad. The city is surrounded by a long coast to the north and flat agricultural areas to the south. In the middle of the map there is a small civilian airfield.

    And look here at door number three:

    Celle

    Download Link


    From Armaholic:
    Description:
    Based on the area around the town of Celle, Lower saxony, this "island" covers 250sqkm of real terrain compressed into 100sqkm ingame, thus resulting in a rough 1:5 scale.

    This piece of map features two nearly ICAO approveable Airports with proper signage and new Airport-buildings, such as huge hangers. Besides that there is a terrain with rolling hills, open spaces and somewhat around 35 towns. All set in a Luneburg Heath style. Steelbeasts-fans are going to love this one.

    Features:

    100km² real terrain
    Authentic Celle City
    Detailed Villages
    Many Custom buildings/objects
    Two airports, ICAO approved
    Bergen-Hohne Military Training Area
    Check them out and have your say.

      I'm a big supporter of Emita City. It is a small download and has a lot of great enterable buildings. This is a great MOUT map and a mission makers gold mine. There is a tunnel, a castle, so many interesting landmarks that just make mission ideas spring to mind effortlessly. It looks great and has some really nice approaches from the south through some rural areas. There is even a fantastic stadium which will be great for a TVT scenario. I flew a helo into it at night with the stadium lights on & it looks perfect.

      On another front, the file size is small which is great for asking players to download it off our site. No long waits, just quick download & play.

          Isola di Capraia looks most well done.
          Emita city feels like the most suited for the quick "have-a-sniff"-purpose
          Celle is onlu viable with ACRE in my mind.

          Emita it is.

              First one is the best looking, but tactically impractical.
              Second one is ugly, but I like the Stalingrad-like potential.
              I don't see any appeal in a gigantic flat fields map like the third one.

                I like emita city. Its a very large and diverse city. And it is perfect for some intense close quarters combat. And, while the land outside the city, is not the best looking, its not bad. It can still some purpose.

                I also like Celle though. Its got a nice European woodland feel to it. It would be perfect for cold war style tank and infantry combat. And the villages/ cities are excellent.

                  I voted for Iso di capraia only because I know there is an Insurgency mission made for this map. Outside of that I have no clue what missions are made for these maps as I don't game on Bravo or anywhere else other than Alpha therefor no clue? If I was to pick maps from a larger selection of maps I’d probably picked Fallujah or Lingor or perhaps Tropica or pir_mana as they also have Insurgency. I’m not hard over at Insurgency but everyone seems to enjoy it once in awhile.

                      Life wont always throw a soldier into a tactically practical theatre of war. Its impracticality appeals more to me because it would make things more difficult to fight at, thus more fun. I vote for Capraia.

                        My votes for capraia. I think we need to keep it as quick and painless as possible for new players. Other than that. I'll fight anywhere. Just give me a gun and a radio.

                          From the choices given I go for Emita, it is small and easy to download as well as different than Takistan and Chernarus. It also features (in my opinion anyway) less trees and forests which can cause the game to be slower to a lot of people (perhaps also a reason, public players prefer Takistan to Chernarus).

                            Hahaha pink....totally unnecessary, yet oddly pleasing color to read.

                            I think most people prefer Takistan to Chernarus because there seems to be less terrain glitches with AI. Trees are for sure a huge part of it, but for me anyways, thats the biggest issue with Chernarus. There have been times where all i can see of AI is their boots sticking out of the ground.

                              I think it is pleasing as well :P

                              As for the glitches I agree, although to be honest every time I have played on Chernarus the AI seem smarter (they move way out of the AO, they have a lot more random patrols, they make a lot more effort to flank you etc) at least this is what I get.

                              There have also been comments from pub players that they dislike they amount of trees also because they cannot see anything so they get shot down faster (many times because they rush into it without looking at all).

                              Lastly , I think that enterable building will be fun, and different than all those huts and barns and whatever you call those Takistani thing (yes I actually do not know what they are called :P )
