I was a big fan of the old A2 Fallujah map by Shezan74, and I was missing something similar with the A3 quality. So I decided to stop waiting and go ahead with my own project.
This is basically a 10x10 km terrain featuring most of the Ramadi city in Iraq (Al-Anbar province) and surroundings. I'll use A3 vanilla assets whenever I can, but of course it will also require CUP Terrains for the middle eastern stuff.
The project is in its very early stages, so what I have so far is:
- 10240 x 10240px resolution satmap image (1px/m aprox)
- Very detailed map mask.
- Euphrates river (wip).
- Terrain layers, textures and clutter.
I'm not using a real heightmap because it'll be a pain in the ass for building placement, so I'm editing it manually to add the features that I want. However the map will be mostly flat (like the old Fallujah map).
Right now I'm working on the road network which will take some time to complete. After this I'll begin working on the object placement.
I leave you with some pics of the satmap image and an ingame aerial view.
This is my first terrain, so I am open to suggestions and constructive criticism 😊
