Scottish Highlands 1.0 is now available! See bottom of this post for the link to the Steam workshop.

 

 

Scottish Highlands takes you to North-West Scotland, focusing on the hills and valleys around Loch Eil, only a few miles from the Largest mountain in Scotland, Ben Nevis. This area has an interesting mix of topography. Coastal areas are flat and broken up by villages, tall hedgerows and fields, whilst the less populated inland is mainly large valleys and hills with tight twisting roads, intertwined by dense forests.

 

 

Roadmap:

 

Full release

Scottish Highlands is now at a point where I'm happy to call it a full release. I will still be making small changes here and there, making improvements to the satmap and maybe adding or tweaking a few areas, but as the map stands it is in a fully playable state.

Hey, I found at least one further house that fits the theme.

I think it's perfect for an urban theme. It's part of the Rosche mod. Maybe the creator shares it.

Weirdly enough, I believe the source files for Rosche itself are available for download via WA Lancer's Google Drive - he might be up for sharing some of the assets, with due credit, as BeastHunter has pointed out.

Mmm, tbh not so sure about the Rosche assets, as a Scot I'd have to say the use of Livonia assets look just fine for creating an authentic piece of Scottish terrain.

Agreed. Mind you, until someone does a pebble-dashed council house model, Rural Scotland is never going to look exactly right in Arma. 3  🙂

This asset is nice, but red brick buildings are actually quite hard to come by in Scotland, most buildings are either either grey, white or wood. If there's any other suitable buildings from Rosche I'll talk to the creator about using them

I really wanted to add some council estate areas (where bams would be more of a threat than CSAT) but as you said, there's not many assets that capture the same feeling

That second pic is pretty good. Really close in look and vibe to what you tend to get. The Mull of Kintyre map has some really nicely done little council estates in it - not sure where the assets are from. Of course, this is a mostly rural map, and as others have said, there are quite a few buildings in the game and DLC which really aren't far off for that. 

 

EDIT: Just realised those are the same buildings. Lol.

I'm loving the picnic benches in the pub in those latest screens. Very nice details you've got going on there @Morriski 👍

Looks very good. Love the ditches etc. Details like that really improve a map, not only visually but gameplay-wise. Looking forward to it!

That's so beautiful! Is that how the skies are or have you used your sullen skies mod?
