N'Ziwasogo A3 terrain (Released)

Recommended Posts

Makhno, just thought I'd double check, my unit produces many videos and plans on producing a video showcasing Nziwasogo with a custom FOB (after your next update). You are fine with us posting videos showcasing Nziwasogo to Youtube, yes?

Does this mean @Isla_Duala etc is no longer a dependency?

Hey everyone.

I have seen multiple people on here complain that this still requires the "isla duala" (full version w/ units) as a dependency on play with six, so it ends up mounting this addon onto your ArmA 3 game,

please please please remove this dependency, I am very sure this addon only requires the vegetation and buildings for it, and also I am pretty sure you said now it includes all of that in the PBO anyway, I would try to report this on play with six, but please do remove that dependency as it is useless and causes a bunch of ArmA 2 units to load on your editor and totally breaks the main menu with error messages. :( Please help with this issue. I love this great map and want to be able to properly install it without this hassle and workarounds!

Love the map and update!!

I've been messing N'Ziwasogo for the last month, building a MP Patrol Ops server.

Hopefully you will be able to remove the dependency in PlayWithSix (custom .exe works but not having helps with MP missions using playwithSix).

Thanks for your hard work on this.

Awesome work Makhno!

On PlaywithSix, @Isla Duala is still listed as a dependency for some reason. Do they have to change that their end or can you remove @Isla Duala as a dependency on your end?

EDIT: Nevermind it appears that I just needed to restart Play withSix, @Isla Duala is no longer listed as a dependency. Again, great work love the map.

I had another question which no one seems to have asked yet. What is the Background/lore for N'Ziwasogo? What's the area it is based on etc.?

When we started the Night ops in this lovely jungle map.

We always very disappointed with its lighting. Even if we just turn the one or less then 2 Chem light or lamps, it turned in to very strong LED light class. Tooooooo shiny

Not just for the chems, it happens with lamps, vehicle headlights, flares.

Hope u can fix it at the next Update.

-Six/Isla Duala dependency : done ( thx play with six Team).

-acta13 : Can you provide a screenshot, I dont see anything realy disturbing by night on my computer ( Anyone else has problems ?) ?

-lore/Setting :

Well, I never thought in term of lore or depicting a peculiar setting when planning for this terrain.

What I aimed at was creating a terrain different from the ones we aready had, and that could allow for a different gameplay than arma 3's vanilla islands. Specificaly I wanted to recreate close range combat in non urban areas.

I'm also quite fond of the style of recon missions performed by MACV-SOG (John Plaster's books are a great read on this subject : http://www.amazon.com/Sog-Secret-Americas-Commandos-Vietnam/dp/045123118X?bcsi-ac-95bb4efa6a1646c8=229BB80200000503YLZMcA5eq75lAnb+j/sHZ9pw5l+iAAAAAwUAADBiUQAIBwAAKAAAAACQAwA=)

I tried to make the map so that this kind of missions can be performed, hence the wide jungle areas.

Eventualy I chose africa rather than south east asia, because there's more real life military actions taking place here those days or in the near past (Ivory Coast, Congo, Nigeria, Sierra leone....)

-Plans : replacing streetlamps with A3 ones, and maybe add some ( definitely something needed).

I don't want to add more buildings to this map, it's already quite densely populated.

But i'm planing more maps of the same kind.

First something close to the mekong delta, with wide rivers ( Blazing away in fast boats definitely a must).

Then maybe something more mountaineous like Laos/vietnam (but given the Ai's management or lack of slopes, I have some doubts).

-Now a quiz : N'ziwasogo's terrain mesh is made from ASTER GDEM data altered to suit gameplay purposes (islands were added, and altitudes modified, the whole area is in real life above sea level)

Who can find where this actualy is on our planet ?

Very nice to this received an update! Can you tell if the weird problems with A1 buildings are fixed, like hearing an invisible unit in the house conncected with strange FPS issues?

I'm really interested in this island for some upcoming TacBF mission as discussed in our forums here.

It's one of the best currently available for ArmA3, aside from those ported over from ArmA2.

However I would really like to see a dramatic increase in the mico-terrain to aid PvP battles. Currently, the only cover available seems to be from objects (trees, buidlings, (rocks), etc.) but not small dips/mounds in the terrain.

Please consider the addition of micro-terrain features for future releases and thanks for your hard work thus far!
