    Converting Nogovo To Arma II

    on pause atm, buisness picked up at work. Not such a bad thing though, I need more HD space anyway and I'm waiting on a new HD to be delivered. I spent quite a bit of time filling in details in the sat lco on the 4 islands. Something I've been considering is expanding the island sizes so they're not so far apart. Any thoughts on that?

    I'm running an open alpha and beta test so updates will be public. Thanks for the interest in the project 5133p39. I think the thread title is misleading so I'm going to start a new thread with the next upload. I'll post a link in the bottom of this one so peeps can follow.

    I took a break for sometime and just recently started back in on this. I honestly thought I could rush the world building process but that just isn't going to happen. The road smoothing gets a little tedious so I'm kinda jumping around in the work load. Currently I'm adding some finer details like rock walls and ditches in areas lacking character. I'm going to wait till the road network is placed and at least some buildings and bush's till I upload another update. Looking at maybe 1-2 months.

    Ovaron Island

    I had no problems what-so-ever. Most likely the end user has an addon conflict or maybe an issue with their pc. I'm running the latest beta patch for arma II so unless there is something that patch has fixed/changed, I don't think it's an issue to worry about. I think you might want to try mixing the trees/bush's a bit more before completely replacing them with all green vegetation. I personally think it adds a level of depth to the map and fits really well. Maybe trying merging or overlaying them a bit more.

    Spent a few minutes flying around. I love the grass sat texture and the lake/ponds look really good with the neg sea level as apposed to the pond object. Very nice man, keep up the good work!

    Still working on it. The changes made just isn't something I think you guys would really notice. I'm just doing to the rest of the map what I've done to everon so I think I'll wait till the whole thing is refined to upload. Just having a hard time with the terrain under the sea level. I do have a way to adjust it but it creates visible blocks on the water surface. I'm left with either this approach or redoing the whole thing, and I really really really don't want to do that. At this point I'm setting it aside for now and working on the other three islands.

    There is more added in the version I have, but it's just not enough to upload for testing yet. There are allot of changes on the other islands but not really things I think you guys would really notice other then the sat lco additions like road networks, forests and farms. I'm currently working on a critical issue right now that I've been putting off. The sea level isn't deep enough for most of the map and it's too sharp of a transition for the sea area close to novoga. The approach I took to add novoga is different then the other three islands and that's causing some issues. If all goes well, I should have an upload or at least screen shot updates on Sunday.

    Operational phase "clean sweep" started off with a small skirmish. Scratch one tango. Alas their psych-ops are taking their toll... I cannot sit near my PC without lifting my legs up in my chair, nightmarish images of the small hoard are causing sleep deprivation as well. Careful examination of captive has proved useless and self defeating. The damn thing has fangs... FANGS! A well placed gas attack seems to be the best approach. Operation: "Gas'm all till their tiny insect brains melt like that guy's face in Indiana Jones and the Lost Arch" shall begin at 1100 hours tomorrow!

    Well, I was enjoying the potato plant discussion when I saw this gangly mother f-ing spider crawl up my wall near my monitor. I grabbed my pad of paper and tried to smash him... he JUMPED AND TOUCHED MY %@#* ARM MAN! HE TOUCHED MY ARM! I injured him though, captured him in a jar for identification. As far as I can tell he could be a brown recluse... I cannot continue under these conditions. I would feel a million times better if I had a clear line of sight and a lazer gun that would fry those little bastages like boogers on a light bulb. Suffice to say, war has been declared! Project cannot resume until I'm satisfied that all the nasty bastages are dead. It's been awhile since I've looked behind my desk and monitor area. My mind is running wild with images of miniature spider strongholds... there little shiny black eyes peering back at me... fuzzy little fangs twitching... GAWD I hate spiders... As far as progress, I'm still rehashing the elevation for malden and kolgujev. Sat images are adjusted with forests and road guide lines on all islands. If all goes well with "Operation: Kill All Bugs With Extreme Prejudice" then I should have another alpha upload and/or updated pics by Sunday.

    I don't mind this thread got moved, just wish I could edit the thread title. I'll repost when the beta's start pumping out. hmmm, this limitation of 4 masks just won't do. So plan "B"... create object tiles to place onto the surface like the concrete tiles they made for the airport on chern... good thing I think is that I'll be able to make every farm field unique, it's just going to be one hell of a pain I think. I'm not even sure how this will look with objects popping/flickering but maybe it'll be ok if I can match the sat color and object surface texture close. I better stay focused on the roads for now, I'll tackle these issues later lol. Thanks for the infos bush and martin! @ martin Love the pics bro!

    @ Bad Benson Now that you say that, I was highlighting whole forrests of trees so that could have been the reason. Thanks for the info! @Martin After or during road placement I'll be messing with the masks. I'll also be swapping out the road guide lines for sat overlays soon. I've currently color coded the road network for double lane concrete, single lane concrete, dirt and gravel roads. While I work on the terrain elevation I'm thinking up approaches to the farms. The 6 mask limit per square kinda kills me here so I may end up with two types of farm masks. One for tan colored farms and one for greenish colored farms. Then use static vegetation to give some variation to the individual farms. I think there are hay rolls and piles that can be used for farmed fields. I'm concerned about using the clutter for the actual plants in the fields. Some people don't use the terrain detail at all during mp game play. I will definitely look into it though, if nothing else then to see what can be done with this approach. Thanks for the info and upload!

    I'm working pretty hard right now on the terrain elevation. I had to redo malden several times but it's starting to get to a good place I think. Currently working out some of the steeper roadways. The sat still needs to be refined to match up with the level of everon. It's just taking me allot of time to prep the roadways right now. Each island is going to be unique in terms of vegetation and features. Malden will have a large beach area to the north along with some swampy areas. Some of the description of the original ofp version mentions that the soil isn't very good for farms but I want to have a few in there. Maybe a apple tree farm/hay farm, just some small and simple areas. I'm considering a beach resort for the north-western area with a hotel etc. In terms of the next alpha upload, I'll wait till I think all the islands are ready for roadways. I will definitely need some peeps to check out the islands for changes before I proceed. I don't want to be forced to change elevation after I start in on the road networks etc. Hows your map coming bro? I'm eager to check it out :)

    alrighty, I think it is just a low end graphics issue then. @roadkill Nice man, I'll put a promo link in the add for your addon when I start releasing the RC's.

    Ok, I think it's my graphics card then. I'm using a ati 5770 so if anyone else has some ocean lag issues plz post up the graphics. @ martin Ok thanks bro, I'll try mediafire next time.
