New Terrain - Montella Terrain mod (1:1 Scale - Inspired by Southern Italy)

Recommended Posts

MONTELLA TERRAIN MOD

============================================================================================================================================================================================================================

============================================================================================================================================================================================================================

 

Hello everyone,

Its been more than two yeard since I started this project and I think it is time to make it public and breathe a sigh of relief. I hope  you will enjoy every piece of it, just like i did making it.

The Terrain is inspired by a mountainous region in Campania (Italy) south of Naples, yes it’s not an island. The vibe is the same as in “Chernarus” but with a touch of Italian Culture. The map is a scale 1: 1 with the real areas (Parco Regionale Dei Monti Picentini - Irpinia). It is essentially a big valley between two large mountains “Verteglia” and “Laceno” both with their points of interest, towns and much more. The valley has 3 big towns: the most important “Montella”, then “Bagnoli” and “Cassano”, two of which have already been completed. Also, an entire section has been removed to create an area that actually does not exist in real life, the “Irpinian Sea”. Being a rural area there are not many roads that connect the town easily therefore you will have to cross rivers and ride on top of high cliffs and mountains.

The map uses at its best the Arma 3 assets both the vanilla and the Tanoa ones also, we imported some from Arma 2 and other mods.

 

 

Update: Terrain is still Work in Progress

The terrain is now in a condition i feel many of you can consider "playable".

This does not mean that the mod is completed or that it represent a finished product, it still is a Work In Progress.

 

You can download the mod from the workshop here:

Terrain is quite ambitious, can already see that.
I liked the rivers(they still need fixing though) and overall terrain height difference. Finally a map that can get full use of waterfall scripts btw.
Not a fan of Italy vegetation(but that's just my specific taste, terrain definitely reminds of Italy).
The main problem I see, is the Montella city being a FPS killer, which is why it's hard to see that city area to become playable in multiplayer mods/missions. For SP it may be fine though.

I was in editor looking around and was hugely impressed by the coastal road and cliff faces. The cities are dense and life like and equally impressive achievement. Hope the docks/city in the south comes to life as you continue to work on the map. A very small thing was that petrol garages/stations did not seem to contain any pumps.7BCCD3BEA4AF44955A0961B4BD5EB9FB0D5AC5344C05C0D879E58C533223C322FE2517B7AC4A9F0A

 

Thanks for WIP release and letting us look around. I will continue to explore and let me know if details like this are helpful to you.

Looks amazing from the couple of mins I had to try it.

One glaring issue I found though is the road up to the church on top of the mountain is ridiculous. It's almost like trying to drive up stairs at some spots. :rofl:
Also at the airfield can I suggest moving the radar system a little further from the helipad, and expanding the area around said helipad as at the moment there's not really enough room around the pad to land anything bigger than a littlebird 

I'm sure that'll all get sorted though. Congrats on what looks like an amazing map.

I can't wait to start making mission on it once the bugs get ironed out.
