Here's the first impression from someone who was born and raised on Limnos :)

I played the game for a few hours yesterday, just some driving around on the editor and my mind was blown. I don't have anything to say about the campaign, the weaponry etc (haven't tried it yet) but the island is so real it's scary.

Ok so I couldn't find my house, the main town is designed for gaming purposes (wider streets, houses etc) but apart from that and some other minor details i thought i was watching a youtube video of Limnos. The roads, hills, beaches, salt flats, dirt roads, rocks, football grounds everything looks better than i hoped and i've only played a couple of hours. I never thought i would be able to drive around in Arma 3 as if i was actually driving on the island itself.

All in all, I'm very impressed with the work BI put into making the island as realistic as possible, hopefully i will be impressed by the game itself too.

Really awesome to hear.

Must be really strange to be able to play on the island you grew up on... Btw, just google Lemnos and see the google earth version, and turn on Photos too see allot of the island.

Ok here are some photos from Limnos. There are some good ones on google maps as well, especially of Myrina (or Kavala according to Arma)

Anyway:

1. photo of the castle in Myrina. You can also see a small peninsula on the left which you can also see in the game. It's the beach of Aggelohori in Arma.

2. Photo taken from the same place as the one before, looking to the right.

4. Rocky beach at the south peninsula of Limnos. Near Zaros bay in Arma, area called Agios Kosmas in Arma.

Could someone fix the thread title for me please? It's Lemnos or Limnos and i'm not a resident anymore. Maybe a Lemnos native? Thanks.
