[WIP] Kandahar Map

Recommended Posts

Hello, Armadeus is working on a new map project: Kandahar. The map will be a 32km x 32km map. We will try to get closed to the reality concerning the roads, the vegetation, mountains, and cities. Sure we will not make Kandahar able to receive 450.000 inhabitants but we will create the city with the center town, the settlements in north and the countryside. We will include the air base of Kandahar, even if in reality it is a bit outside (right of the heightmap). We will think the map with optimization in mind. The goal here is not to create a map only to take beautiful holidays photos but to play and not to be forced to put settings on low.

Here some pictures:

Nice but this map looks no different than a Arma 2 map. Keep doing what u doing and I'm sure it will turn out to be better.

With a map like that big, it will take you ages to finalize it. Good luck.

awesome start, my only real concern would be the bare sand dunes surrounding the fields. But keep up the great work, looking forward to it

Sweet! I've spent some time there and have some reference images of the terrain if you'd like.

Thank you everyone for your messages.

Little information, we plan out an alpha version of the map (not completed) within a few months, probably in early 2015.

This alpha will focus on the north of Kandahar, about 35% of the work should be completed, that's our goal. :yay:

Why would you make a 32x32 map? It won't get finished...period.

Not only that, the first 10x10 will look the same as the next 10x10, etc. there is just no point spending that much time and effort because it will be underutilized if you ever finish it. 10x10 is more than enough with interesting places to explore.

He can make whatever he wants. If he wants to make a 9001x9001 map, that's his prerogative.

I know he can but why set unrealistic goals.

I could start a thread saying I'm going to make a 50x50km map, easy to start a thread. A lot harder to produce.

A 10x10 map is fine for vehicles and infantry but less for the air vehicles.

Ok thanks for the info. Before putting small environment elements we have to think about optimization. Because we have a lot of houses to put. We will see later the decorative elements. Now it is too early.
