  • Map of ARMA 2's Island Released

    found this on IGN, I doubt this is the whole island as the photo has 2 roads that go off map(not like BIS to do something like this IMO)

      It's not smaller than Sahrani.

      Also, if you look around, you can find a map of all of Chernarus (meaning: more than is in A2), and the 'inset' matches up to the map you see there. I'd put money on that being the full playable part of the Chernarus terrain in A2.

        Will they be able to have lakes and rivers on this map? Looks like a lot of moutain valley stream crossings.

            Sahrani had very little usable terrain, especially the northern half.

                Theres several airports, I think it was three on the mainland, plus some islands away from the coast, such as Utes, has airports on them.

                I wonder if that huge airport is the correct 3.5 km. The Sahrani airport was only around 2 km long..

                  I think we see the whole map here as well. Here

                  http://www.arma2.com/content_de.html

                  they have the same map as on IGN (and other game sites).

                  They write that the map is 225km˛ (15km x 15km). When the sides really are 15km long, then the airport runway is about 1.4km long. I find that still long. ;-)

                  I am really looking forward to more realistic, scenic terrain in Arma2.

                    I think looks much more realistic than sahrani.... sahrani had some really weird/unrealistic terrain...

                    besides, its the detailing thats important... hope they have some more detailed terrain (with DITCHES) but dont think the engine supports that yet...

                    Overall I think this looks like big improvement over sahrani which I think in some ways was a step away from realism than OFP islands.

                      About the topic of airports. Don't forget that it will also be hangar ships. Probably planes are able to use them.

                        So if you're flying along and you reach the map edge, what do you see? Water or just flat, featureless terrain for as far as the eye can see, like IL-2 Sturmovik?

                          in an interview it was stated you see on the horizon of the water you'll see mountains/hills in the background that you can never reach.

                            The game map looks ok,Very much reminds me of South Sarini, but it looks just a bit too square-ish for me, makes the map appear smaller that it actually is.

                            Though isn’t there also going to be a large island off the coast?
