  • Somalia, Africa Map (Island) WIP

    Hi guys,
    this the reason you don't see me too much on the servers for a while. I also moved my other missions on the side until I'm done with this.


    Buldozer - map editor screens, last one is from Visitor3:















    Currently I'm working on city looking like Mogadishu, I'm planning to add some smaller towns around and military base. I still haven't updated my desert textures.

    I will be informing you about the progress in this thread.

      Looking good mikee! But don't forget about us, the ones who have a not so good PC :p

      I see some buildings from ArmA(1), will it require caa1 or A1 pbos?

        One A1 pbo, which is like few MB and will be in the folder with island. Map will be the size of Utes (imagine Utes without water around, just land all over square map), so it will run decent :).

          Ohhh! Looking good this far! I guess we'll see a port on Blackhawk Down when that map is done? ^^

            An A2-quality urban desert-map would be very welcome, and by the looks of it yours will of excellent quality.

            I salute you :icon14: Island making is something I haven't dared to touch

                Big thumb's up. This looks like a fun map. I applaud your realistic looking city, with its haphazard layout and building variety.

                    It sucks that I can't change view distance in preview editor, but thats okay. You can image how it will look like in game :).

                      Impressive to say the least but how will all these buildings impact FPS? There is a lot of data here and whats with the large crater??

                      Anyways, looks very good.

                        Map is about 6 km - 6 km. I will make sure it works fast. Usually people make huge maps with big cities and there you get the lag. Usually, big map uses most of computer resources.

                        My idea was to make small map about few kilometers wide, but with detailed city and some smaller camps/towns, so it doesn't require super fast computer to work fine.

                        I though to fill the small craters with some bush and garbage.

                        Few more pictures with ground texture that is there just for look. I will work on texture quality later.











                        PS: Roads textures doesn't show up in Buldozer.
