Best Map For Syria-Iraq Conflict

Recommended Posts

I've been following the Syrian conflict since it started with both sadness and fascination to what tactics the warring factions are employing to defeat their adversaries.  Having watched the battles rage recently for Aleppo, I was wondering if there are any maps out there or in the making that can create the kind of battles we're currently seeing in Aleppo.  Fallujah the other maps like it are good good maps, but they're dated and they don't resemble war-torn Syria we see today. I know there's a lot of people who have played the desert themed maps to death and want something fresh, but an Aleppo kind of map would bring with it a lot of intense CQC gaming for people like myself who still like to play the Middle East maps .

It would be nice to see a map that has lots of heavily damaged towering buildings with their fronts blown off that provided dark and dingy multiple platforms to launch attacks or snipe from, and buildings like we see in Syria with lots of those chiselled out holes to shoot from. I think it would be a great experience if players and tanks worked better together to root out snipers camped out from these heavily damaged towering buildings.  I would like to see a labyrinth like network of streets strewn with rubble, twisted steel, debris and vehicle wrecks, but also with the heavily damaged buildings that have partially destroyed staircases and balconies that players would have to navigate to get to vantage points to attack from

If a single street had a rows of these damaged buildings that were all accessible, I believe it would bring more team play too as a squad would have to literally ensure each building they passed was cleared of any potential threats, or it would keep players constantly checking their surroundings for enemies to peer out from the many vantage points overlooking them.  In short, an Aleppo kind of map would IMO not only definitely bring an intense nail biting gaming experience to the table, but would also encourage a lot more team play as everyone would need assurance from each other when battling that kind of densely constructed environment. 

If there's nothing in the making, what map would you suggest to use in order to get as close to this experience as possible?   


Cheers,

I would agree with @DonbassCZ- The Diyala map is stunning and should be checked out by everyone. Fallujah is also a good one-it's a large urban Arma2 port.

 

There are several WIP maps being made also as follows:

 

A Haditha map being made now- https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/189271-haditha-iraq-wip-terrain/

 

 

The Al-Kut map will be great when it is released https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/180809-al-kut-iraq/page-5

 

There is also a Mosul map in development-no idea how far along it is . There are a few testing videos of it on youtube

 

And there are one or two maps for Arma 2 not ported over as well such as Faysh Khabur http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=14999

 

So a lot of good stuff coming out in the future and two fantastic Iraqi maps already out.

 

You can also use this for Iraqi/Syrian units http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=28406

Oh. Apologies Opteryx-I was not aware of that. I didnt see anything about it on your thread so I assumed it was still WIP

I'm feeling the lack of a Syrian map as well, and the lack of some high-quality Syrian Civil War factions/assets. Hopefully the modding community will come around on this subject some day.

Fallujah is great if you don't mind immersion-breaking signage in a few places. :) The version currently on Workshop uses A2 and A1 objects, with the occasional Russian and Czech signage they come with. It'll probably be fixed in the new version that is now in dev.

Agreed.  But I feel it's the map overall that's letting the Syrian theme down.  If modders are able to recreate the damaged buildings, rubble and wrecks we see in Syrian cities like Aleppo today, I know it'll create something intensely immersive.  It would force squads to move down streets in a tight formation whilst having to use coms. I'd also like to see things like the addition of decomposing bodies too with infesting surrounding insect flies with added sounds.  Body parts and blood are of course are a reality of war too.  Although I can imagine this will lead to another contentious debate.  But a building that's been bombed will of course likely contain human remains.   Scattered items like a child's toy, spent ammunition and family photographs are things that bring a lot of reality and immersion.  The dynamic lighting tall buildings would create would be incredible as it'd created some nice dark shade to impair players' vision and keep them on their toes.

Let's hope there's some WIP with something epic that resembles Syria's cities because I sincerely believe it'll bring something incredibly exciting to play.
