Heh heh, I feel your pain Bro, maybe Smiley will put out an Alpha build if we all ask nicely!

Obviously that last part is a wee joke, i am aware of Forum rules and regulations regarding begging!

Looks fantastic Nick! With those classic cottage farm house buildings, this'll be perfect for any WW2 mods that are hopefully coming.

Can I ask, where do you source your high res sat and height maps from?

Looks really nice, however I was wondering if you will make the new Buildings enterable in a later state of devolopment.

Hello everyone,

Thankyou for the kind words. I am sorry for not getting back sooner. I'm planning on submitting my update for the MANW contest - some may hate the extension, but for me its good! - as I have very little time outside of my day job!. I'll be working on finishing as much as I can over the next three days. It occurred to me that the most important feedback I can receive is from you, the community!

Therefore, I'd like to offer you a download of the terrain for play-testing. If you do have any thoughts, concerns, wishes, then please do let me know. I've booked the weekend up and any feedback would be greatly received.

Known things

  • Fix St.Agnes bin file error after exiting map in Arma3 - No idea how (Yet).
  • Further rock placement.
  • Clutter refinement.
  • Re-position and correct buildings.
  • Fix shadow LODs for all objects.
  • Fix start location in map editor.
  • Fix sat gridding problem.
  • Add location names .
  • Tweak lighting values.
  • Add misc. detail to locations (camps, logs, etc)
  • Work on underwater areas.
  • Refine "core" game-play areas for mission makers. Ideas welcome.
  • Fix RVMAT for hedges. Texture is too flat at the moment.
  • Add further bushes/trees/plants to increase detail/concealment.

Download

There are two files. The terrain itself and the custom objects.

Terrain: www.digitalterrains.com/IOS/Build/IOS_St_Agnes_1.2.rar

Objects: www.digitalterrains.com/IOS/Build/IOS_Objects.rar

It's kinda scary to be releasing something after all the hours I've put in. I'm pretty sure I have tunnel vision now. Lets get it out there and see what happens! *Runs away*

Thanks everyone.

Nice map, lots of green which is a good thing, but an exercise in futility against AI xray-vision hehe.

Thanks! Was that a result of the hedges? They have the correct Geo/View/Fire LODs and should stop the AI X-Ray vision!

Really nice work, I can see a lot of potential in this island and in the whole archipelago if you dare to do it. The only thing that I disliked are the destroyed houses.

But I think it's one of the bests maps for A3, even in its actual stage.

( BTW please try not to pack the island too much to avoid fps drops )

Thanky you very much. I do plan to tackel the whole Archipelago but it will take me some time. I started off doing this but had to scale back. I did a quick video showcasing the main island - St.Mary. You can view it

.

Thank you for your points. The destroyed houses have been noted. One of the reasons I put them in there (Even tho they do not fit) is down to a gamplay point of view - giving players the chance to hide and fire from within, as non of my UK houses have interiors. :(

hi love the map you did alot of awesome work on it i have been eagerly awaiting its release i noticed when exploring the island that you cant run thru the tunnel section coming out dome compund on the island where the terrain pokes thru the pipes http://cloud-4.steampowered.com/ugc/539634893953121398/E0666A00E1D95DC8AF6D29FCD254C2178A25AF87/ (230 kB) also i was unable to locate the ship that was located off shore? i tried seeing if a conflict with AIA TP or A3MP might have been an issue but was unable to locate it with even just the base arma 3 running is it a placeable object in the editor or ?

Beautiful little island, there is a certain bleak ambience to be had when exploring for the first time.

Reminds me a lot of the Falkland Islands.

I'm aware the local flora supports palm trees because of the Gulf Stream, but when you see one in-game i found it quite a jarring experience.

But as far as ambience and atmosphere goes it's fantastic.

Looking forward to future updates.
