  1. I've been super busy with college and life lately but I've been trying to get a few bites in. Here's some more pics of another city area I'm working on! The ground surfaces and all is still very WIP for these areas and still doing more object detail placement. I also JUST realised I never posted ANYTHING of the military base I had been working on in the map aswell, so here it is! Cheers and thanks all!
  2. Very nice! This is super interesting. We definitely need more JTAC-oriented things in Arma. I'd love to get more use out of such things, JTAC has to be one of the funnest and most intriguing roles there are. Cheers and thank you!
  3. I've updated the main post to contain more up-to-date information and images of the terrain in it's current state, alongside my goals, dreams, and expectations. Cheers and thanks everyone who checks up on this and shows interest! 🙂
  4. Have an interesting sight! Old dig-up site Archeology and stuff! Yay! And some other details on the city I've been working on! I've been schooling myself on this theme and vibe for the terrain 😛
  5. started making and adding the first iterations and variations of surfaces/ground detail textures and clutter. I've been running around a bunch of games looking at how they handle the ground clutter to try and make something that works well. I can probably do some things to make it better, but I'm very happy with the results so far! AND ANOTHER JOYRIDE! I really enjoy the landscape and layout I've created for this city!
  6. Some more pictures of the extensions I've been doing to the city I've been working on. I guess you could say I went on a very secure joyride aswell! 😛
  7. Thank you! Haha, it's a very time consuming and tedious thing having to place them all one by one, but it's a habit I sort of picked up over time, I've just found ways to try and keep it entertaining, or I'll usually do it on autopilot mode as I watch a college class or between matches in another game before it's my turn to play hahah. There's definitely not a lot of terrains that actually use them! Lots of work but hopefully worth it in the end 🙂
  8. Hello everyone, back here once again with another update after stacks of college work! So far I've been dealing with a lot of object placement in both of the artificial palm tree islands and also in yet another city I've been working on. I've decided a few more things about the context in which Bastek is being designed; my headcanon of the situation in Bastek is that of utmost turmoil, between segregation, richness, and poverty. I aim to make some regions of Bastek be very well structured, urbanized, and developed, while other areas to be shanty towns, villages, ruins, and overall more empoverished areas. So Bastek wouldn't at all be a land of perfection but instead that of major conflict that is often disguised and overshadowed by it's more succesful regions. This would give motivation to possible conflicts, and also a concept layout for the map to be worked on, I hope these differences will be easily noticeable further down the line. With this said, here's some pictures of said areas. A medium city, and the rich sector of the palm tree islands. Among other plans, I still need to work A LOT on the Satellite Imagery and the ground textures. I'm planning on adding some more disturbed/city-like/non-dunes sand for the more transited areas, along with some rubble GDTs. In other news, I've also been playing games set in the middle-eastern region and theme. I've picked up both Conflict Desert Storm and Serious Sam 3: BFE, along playing some Battlefield 3 and Spec Ops: The Line, to gather some refferences, concepts, solutions and ideas for making the terrain. If you have any suggestions for games that fit in this category, regardless of the story or it's seriousness, please do recommend! I am mostly interested in looking around the terrains and maps to have a clearer refference and feel for this sort of setting. All in the name of research! As always, thanks for your interest!
  9. This is interesting! I had thought of exploring the idea of making a very clustered favela-like map in Arma before, but given how much work it'd take for all the object placement, I thought It'd maybe work best to be something in the style of Proving Grounds, as in, a really small map. There's a lot of slum-like buildings so it wouldn't be too farfetched of an idea, specially if you looked into making such a pack in the future. As always, amazing work! These buildings look very professional and I'm very excited to see them in action once your projects are finished! Cheers!!!
  10. Hi, thanks for reaching out. It does not work for me and hasn't for a while, infact my BI profile name displays correctly but it doesn't update on the forum. I've made forum posts here and asked on the Discord to no avail. Would really appreciate it, who can I get in contact with about it?

    UPDATE: -Flattened terrain area: city of Austin and town of Ozzy. -Minor clutter changes.
  12. Straya is a fictional modern terrain based loosely on the Australian Outback setting. About: Straya is a terrain inspired mainly by the Australian Outback regions, part of the inspiration also originally emerged from the Rainbow Six Siege "Outback" map. This map is by no means an exact representation of Australia, but I tried to replicate the vibes as closely as I could with what's available in the game and to the best of my efforts. I tried to keep an emphasis in both extremes of the spectrum, having very dense green forest areas, with very urban city areas, while also having some wilderness, deserts, and spacious towns. The outback was a theme that immediately captured me as it's a pretty unique sight, and to my knowledge, it has not been very explored in Arma terrains, so as I usually do, I wanted to make something unique and different. As always, it's another project I learned from to make and do better in the future. I hope you will enjoy! IMAGES Features: Dense urban CQB city areas mixed in with spacious towns. Vast outback deserts with a savannah-like setting. Cities, towns, farms, military bases and factories among other landmarks (and easter eggs too!). Custom billboards, signs, and cranes! Miscellaneous areas going from forests, to outback, to a mixture of the two. Support the creator If you like my work, please consider donating! My computer is very budget / entry level (GFX: Radeon RX560, and it was very expensive here!) and electronics are very expensive where I live, I don't have all the means nor the money to afford better hardware, I would appreciate having a more powerful computer for making more complex terrains in the future, not to mention work in a plethora of other projects I'm passionate about, all the things I make are passion projects of mine that I work on during my free time. Any amount is greatly appreciated and helpful. If you like what I do, this would help me a lot.

  13. Hello, I've been having this issue for several months, if not years, and I've intermittently tried to get support on it or some forum moderator or staff to have a look over it. I've tried to update my username to the name I've been using for my work online and in the community for the past few years, but nothing has worked. I've searched the forums, I've asked in the Discord a few times, and all to no avail. I've already tried to go on my accounts.bistudio page / BI profile page and changing my name there, and nothing would change. I've logged out and logged back in into the website and that didn't change it either. Is there any chance I could get my name manually changed? The system doesn't seem to work for me, if possible if someone could check my accounts.bistudio page you'd see my nickname is changed there but not here. I'd also need my name changed in the BI feedback/bugtracker, unless they both change simulatenously. I'd really appreciate it. EDIT: It has been resolved, I contacted a community manager who helped me with it.
  14. I'm not really a screenshot/scene person... but I think this helps set a bit of the vibe I'm going for! Just having some fun testing the vibe of the terrain so far. The areas in the screenshots are very WIP and not final! Not that you can see much in these anyways 😛
  15. Some more pictures! So far I have not done any surface painting so all of the ground looks the same, but there'll be concrete and grass patches in a lot of these areas. I've also tried to keep in mind having vantage points, lots of ladders and stairs to get up to buildings you normally wouldn't be able to, and trying to also be creative with object placement in general.
