"SBP Camp Noobia"

LOL!!!!!!!!! Nice touch, Icebreakr

Also, are you going to add SILVIE and ALICE modules compatibility? You know you have to add demographic entries in the class names section of the config and there you can also add camp and airport locations for the WARFARE module.

THanks for your efforts, ICEBREAKR!!!!!

Mods, please move this to Complete section ;)




Version: v0.99 "public beta"

Release Date: December 30th, 2009



El Diablo, IceBreakr and Tourist board of Afrene are inviting all of you to visit a paradise on Earth - Isla Duala. Tropical forests, sandy beaches, wild savannah, clear water and... nasty neighbouring Republic of Molatia threatening to overrun friendly Republic Afrene in Southern part of Duala.

Current peace can be very decieving. Marks of previous decade-long war can be seen even today and no-man zone still divides both countries with high fence running all along the border. Only few of the natives dare to travel across. With recent diamond and oil findings in Molatia their war machine is growing, too. European and US peacekeeping forces are currently present on Afrene in small numbers, but this might change very soon. Russia and China are in close business ties with Molatia and Afrene is mainly providing services for US and European tourists. War between Molatia and Afrene might be just around the corner...

Project took exactly two months to reach beta v0.99. Many many hours went into it. Consider this as a present to the greatest gaming community ever and a tribute to BIS that is supporting us and for all their dedication!



IceBreakr is from Slovenia, Europe. He's been active in gaming community since 1997 working on several total conversions and mods. He joined GT Interactive (later acquired by Infogrames) to finish up two titles on Duke3D engine. Later he put his passion to level design on Source engine with Kuma, LLC on titles such as KumaWar and KumaWar 2 and couple other mods. His true passion is now running his own mil-sim team/community and creating open worlds such as Bohemia's ArmA & ArmA 2 engines. Check out Island Panthera and this new Isla Duala, they are completely FREE and a present to BIS Community.



Duala is a fictional ~56km2 (10x10km map) big island, divided into two waring countries: Afrene on South and Molatia on North. River divides the two countries with a buffer-zone/border in between, monitored by international peacekeepers.

* Vegetation

African vegetation can be seen everywhere: towns, savannah, desert and jungle. Duala is pretty dry land, but some areas near water feature lush forests. Savannah covers most of the land, while sand and mud is around river beds and beaches. There are no large hills, rare feature rock formations. Guys travelling savannah will find shelter from the sun under acacia trees. Some water rich areas feature thick undergrowth with large datepalm trees and other palms and bushes.

* Military installations

Biggest strategic importance in both countries have airports. There are two major ones used for military and also civilian traffic. Two more are dirt runways (NW Molatia and SE Afrene) and used mainly by small planes. There's a word that drugs and weapons are shipped in and out of the country this way.

* Border & Buffer zone

Afrene didn't build fence wall, but Molatia constructed it all along the border marking their territory they gained in 10-year war. After peace treaty Afrene and Molatia build couple of outposts along the border. There's no confirmation on mine fields, but in decade long war a lot of them were placed and later removed by international mine clearing teams. Afrene built a wall around a border town on East in order to stop Molatian terrorists travelling around. Both sides also have powerful air radars covering most valleys. Afrene set up a heliport near border to stop smuggling operations. Molatia uses helicopters stationed far North in safe cover of thick jungle. There is a rumor that jungle outposts also house Russian instructors training local troops, but there is no official word on that.

* Settlements and towns

Both Afrene and Molatia have capitol towns: Kinsella and Balabango. Slums can be found in both, majority of people living on Duala are very poor. Smaller towns feature markets, industrial compounds, rent houses, offices, etc. All towns and villages are marked on map.

* Sightseeing tips

We don't want to give out info, because we want you to explore! Rent a car from airports or travel in old An-2 to see all the places and pick out favourite spots! There is a nice lake in central Molatia and almost all seaside towns rent out villas. Special adventure is going into jungle on SE part of island where old villages are located. Be extra careful on roads: many of them are in terrible condition and accident can be just around the corner! Its a pretty bad thing when you smash up your vehicle and there is a big desert between you and a nearest town. Therefor military uses mostly UH1 and Mi-17 transport choppers. Foot patrols are only way in jungle, but car convoys can be great in vast savannah. Be sure to keep eye on gas meter since travelling around whole island can empty it up pretty fast. But don't worry, gas stations can be found near all big towns.

* Mission possibilities

Hopefully players of OFP Tonal will switch to Arma 2 to enjoy our new African themed island. It allows mission makers to perform a huge variety of scenarios on it.

Hopefully someone will make use of a new Arma2 patch 1.05 mode Diplomacy to make a war between two countries and maybe even throw in a third rebel side.
