  1. I download a map from armaholic and convert it to .pew. In Visitor 3 and Buldozer i have a nice work. All objects and etc. are a good worked in Buldozer and Visitor. But after Export .wrp and Bynarize i have some ingame problems. There are no roads on the map, and neither roads nor objects are displayed on the "minimap" itself. Only the names of cities from the config. Tried a lot of options with the replacement of the roads themselves. I tried to add MLM for road models (although they worked in the Bulldozer before). Very much I ask to help or assist me and I ask a pardon for bad English. Thank you
  2. Mapname: Orcas Island Status: ( 20.05.2017 ) Version: 0.1.4 / pre Alpha Mapsize: 600km² Largest Island: 148km² Current Object Count: ~ 70.000 Gridsize: 4096 Cellsize: 6 Mapsize: ~ 600km² Satelite Image: 24576x24576 Pixel Hi Community. After 2 years from my last release, and stopping some other works, i am happy to show you my current new project. I work from my home office, and can spend between 4 - 6 hours per day, for developing this terrain. If u want to support me, or if you have any questions about terrain creation, visit me on discord, facebook, youtube or patreon.
  3. Happy Saturday! I would like to share some pictures of a terrain I've been working on for the last few months. I am planning on releasing it either on Steam or Armaholic very soon! I am using it as a testing ground for some custom winter-themed .p3d objects (which I am new at making). This is my first terrain and my first mod, and if I were to start over again I'd do a lot of things differently, but I want to publish this either way because I think there needs to be more arctic themed-maps. Right now I am more interested in starting a new project than I am developing this one much further, so I would potentially be open to sharing the source files with someone if they wanted to further develop this. Russian Fjords is a top-secret government military zone, where high tech weapons, vehicles, and equipment are developed and manufactured. It is centered around a deepwater bay in the arctic ocean, and there is only one well-guarded road in or out. The terrain design is somewhat experimental, with some underground tunnels and a high resolution heightmap. The map could be used for sabotage, espionage, intelligence gathering, or even some kind of James Bond themed machina. Honestly you can use it for whatever you want, it's just not really designed to be used for traditional mission based gameplay, it's more meant as a decent-looking, immersive, cinematic landscape than anything. Features: - 8x8km Arctic Map with 6 custom ground materials (Thank you to Dmitry Chugai of texturelib.com for the ground textures) -Heightmap, Attributes, and Sat map created using L3DT Pro and MS Paint - Unique modeled and textured .p3d objects (Snowy fir trees, space rocket) using 3ds MAX and GIMP - 10,000+ hand-placed objects - A long road which goes all the way around the map and took foreveeeeer to level out - An industrial port, and a military airbase, and several military research areas - Several road tunnels - No mod dependencies, should be compatible with any other mods Known issues: -The stock arma 3 rocks do not look "Great" since they are not covered with snow. When I started this map I did not know how to do custom objects at all. -I have not tested this map with AI and don't know how they'd behave, especially in caves/on ledges -The caves are questionable and I wouldn't recommend making a map with them the way I did. The rocks do not occlude light as you'd hope. - Because the heightmap resolution is 4m, some areas are sharp and bumpy, and depending on your terrain LOD setting, distant terrain can look kind of bad. On my next terrain I'll be using at least an lower heighmap resolution to prevent this, but I am not planning on going thru the entire map and fixing every bump at this point - The ocean goes from shore to super deep very quickly. I do not plan on fixing this - I have messed with the rain settings in config to try to make the rain look more like snow but maybe some people will think it looks funky now. I think built in snow support in Arma 3 would be sick, but for now you can at least use some snow scripts (http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=29156 is one snow script, but the PPEffect color correction can make it very bright and hard to see anything during the day. tweak the script as necessary) - There may be issues with my custom objects that I'm not aware of, I'm very new to making objects Planned features: -Creating snow-covered clutter, and objects such as bushes and rocks, maybe icebergs, improving the look and functionality of objects -Adding some more docks and smaller decoration-type objects such as fences -Possibly Adding some runway overlays -Properly naming and labeling all locations on the map in Russian/Cyrillic -Possibly moving the zone of the map north so that the days are shorter -Continually improving my understanding of how to write a proper config (snow particle effects for driving in the snow is one thing I have yet to master) Please let me know if anyone would be interested in working with me on this or a future projcet! I am open to working with others! Thank you!
  4. So i just updated pboproject to version And now everytime i try to crunch my terrain it stops with the following message(no warning label): <searching for cfgworlds.nameofwrp> there is class tiad_greece.wrp in cfgworlds Now i mention the update because it didnt have a problem before the update. So my question is did anything change in regards to the wrp setup in the config,cpp or is this a pboproject bug? Thanks for the help.
  5. Khogyani, Ghazni Province, Afghanistan ALPHA Version Notes: This is an ALPHA version of this terrain, I still have lots of work to for the best looks of this terrain. For now most of the terrain is flat, in future updates I will be adding more ditches and bumps in the ground to add a more realistic feel to the terrain. Don't expect too much from this release, as I just want feedback about the terrain and some suggestions about the ALPHA version. There are a few issues with this terrain, biggest issue is the 2d editor and navigation map not showing the gray outlines of objects and houses, along with green shapes and circles marking tree lines and bushes. About this project: This terrain is based in the Ghazni Province of Afghanistan. For a google maps location click here. This terrain will be as close to the real life satellite images. The structures will be different, but the compounds layouts, roads, foliage and geographical features will be as accurate as I can get them. This terrain is intended for missions like foot patrols. For those realism units or groups that like to do some foot patrol missions, this might be a terrain to try out. Required Addons: JBAD_Buildings Release State: v0.1-Alpha v1.1-Beta v2.1-Final Release Stages: Features: Multiple towns and villages. Accurate tree lines and farms. One small outpost. Rivers and Creeks. Complete road systems and foot paths. To do for v0.2-Alpha: Rocks. Foliage and Farms. Terraforming. Some buildings and compounds. Pictures: Download: Mediafire - http://www.mediafire.com/download/og0s8od1dfw2g2w/Khogyani+v0.1-Alpha.zip Thanks to: MilkM8n and smokedog for Jbad Buildings ArmA 3 community
  6. Hello! I'm currently making a map without an airport, is there any possible way we can do this? I've had two results so far, one of them being with no input in the ILS arrays: it would end up in an airport being placed in a random location (same happens if you have no roads but just that there'll be random roads!), or in a error message of "No ILS assigned" _(if I input one empty value of like, zero) on start-up of the map. I'm gonna add one to my other map, but the one I'm currently making is an unhabitated island and there isn't much of a point for it to have one as it is sort of a small terrain of 2048x4 and the island is very narrow. Anyone have any clue what I could do? Thanks you!
  7. Hello there! I've been looking into trying to tinker around and learn how to make snow maps for ArmA. Although the satellite image and other settings are very simple to do, I was wondering - but what about the trees, the clutter, and the houses? They'd all look as if they were normal, green trees, green grass/bushes, instead of white or houses sort of covered in Snow. So here I ask, does anyone know anywhere we can get assets (Mods or alike) for a winter map? Or reskins of current in-game things to make them fit in a snowy environment? Also, it'd be really nice if it comes from an accessible author or if they're allowed to be publicly used! Thanks you!!! Kindest regards, Rhaonoa.
  8. Hi guys, So i have been deving a terrain for quite a while now but i have run into a massive issue. I open terrain builder (as admin) and that works fine. then i go to open my project and that is where shizle hits da fan XD. It seems to start opening my map then it crashes. I have verified the integrity of a3 tools and that did nothing. i also ran a troubleshoot compatibility on the terrain builder exe and that did nothing. Have you got any ideas on how to fix this as this only started today. When i checked yesterday i could open and close the project fine ( and did so many times as i was making roads) Thanks in advance Harry
  9. Hello everyone! Here I am pleased to announce, that myself, alongside all the help of fellow ArmA 3 content creator and players, I've finally finished my first ArmA 3 map that I had wished to do for so long! Teumess! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=870872623 Teumess Teumess is a fictional island, loosely based off of Mykonos, Greece. It is one of the Greek islands along Lemnos and Agios Efstratios (Altis and Stratis). It is a 10KmX10Km map (with 65.071 objects), split onto one main island and six smaller islands, the main island being of approximately five kilometers in length, with mountain peaks of up to two hundred and thirty meters, also along deep seas that go as deep as three hundred fifty meters depth. This is the first map I ever made, it's made with lots of learning, effort, and love. I take it as my start onto the more advanced modding aspect of the community, this game has given me many years of entertainment, fun, and enjoyment; and I've decided to start giving back to both the game and the community. Requirements Subscribe, play, and enjoy! :) Map The map is focused mainly on close-quarter encounters and infantry movement, although other things can also still be used. There are ten cities in total, some of them being urban and some rural. There's also two military bases and few landmarks scattered around the map. If you find any issues or have any suggestions, feel free to tell me. This map is still up to have revamps and updates in the future once I get around to doing them or if there's some cool suggestions people would like to see. Anyways, thanks you very much for taking a look, and I hope you will have joyful journeys, adventures and battles on this map!

I wanna thanks everyone in the Terrain Makers skype and discord chats for all the help and support, same to all my friends and fellow ArmA players. I would've put pictures in here and etc but I don't know much of the formatting, so yeah, this is as good as I can do for the forum post! If you have any inquiries, suggestions, or etc, feel free to post here or in the STEAM link! Be advised it is my first map ever and I still have a lot to learn, thanks for the space and the time! :) With no further ado, I wish everyone the best of luck, hope you enjoy! -Rhaonoa.

    Buldozer Tools

    Buldozer Tools by Lappihuan This is a successor to the Improved editor.sqs I’m pretty sure most of you know the following scenarios: “You work for several hours in Buldozer, the rain that is dropping since the last 20 mins is already annoying but the productivity and creativity is on fire. It keeps getting darker and darker and you think that it’s time to restart buldozer but you quickly want to finish the composition you are working on. BOOM! Out of nowhere TB crashes and your adrenalin rushes through the whole body, you didn’t save the project for the last 4 hours!!!†Result: things like this can throw your motivation off for several weeks. “While working on a town, you feel like there is a road missing or would like to move an existing one to fit your object placement better.†Result: you need to restart Buldozer every time you change your roads.shp which is a waste of time! “Players report that AI can’t properly use the awesome bridge you placed on the map, and you can’t figure out why they won’t use it.†Result: you spent many hours to tweak the road and bridge model with a eventual success or use a hacky solution like place an invisible road below the bridge. I hope to eliminate or at least reduce most of the above issues with the Buldozer Tools. Features: Reload roadsDefault key “1†Reset weather and timeDefault key “2†Toggle road diagnosticDefault key “3†Be aware, it can cause Buldozer to crash! DebugDefault key “4†execute the debug.sqf while buldozer is running (helps R&D) NVG and IR modeDefault key “N†Help DialogDefault key “0†Save notificationCustomaisable time in userconfig.sqf While the list is still quite small, I feel like it already has a big impact on the workflow in Buldozer. Installation For the sake of easiness I provide a scripts folder with everything needed in there. Drop the script folder into your P drive so it has the structure: P:\scripts\initBuldozer.sqf You can customize everything in there, but the config.sqf is the most important part for you. If something is unclear / could be made easier, let me know. IMPORTANT: delete or rename your current editor.sqs, so it won't conflict with this. Download Link Feel free to contact me on Skype/discord or here about suggestions, bugs or whatever. I hope you guys enjoy! Thanks to Pennyworth for the help!

  12. Hi, we currently working on a new map called Taunus and we want to show you some progress regularly within this thread. The map will be powered by X-Cam of course and we will invest hundreds of hours, during many MP sessions, in order to finish this map ... asap. Please don't ask about any "release date" because we have only recently started ;) So far 4 people are working on this map: MemphisBelle (MIA) Hotzenplotz Chaser Silola Map size is 20480x20480 m Grid size is 4096 cells Cell size is 5 m If you want to see the whole "first Taunus album", then please follow this link: http://imgur.com/a/7Cuud Silola
  13. Sorry if it's mentioned elswhere, I don't read the forums as often as I used to. Anyway, I appears that during this year's Blender Conference Miroslav Horvath from BIS (Bohemia Interactive Simulations) again had a talk about the tools he's continuously developing for 8 years. I think it's a good place to post it, since the tools are a Blender addon for improvements of terrain editing workflow for Real Virtuality engine (Arma, VBS, ToH, DayZ...). There are some interesting insights on how Take on Helicopters terrain was created, or what does VBS streams simulation that could be seen some time ago in some trailers looks like from behind the scenes. My original topic from several years ago concerning the same tools but in Arma 2 version: Well, "eight years in development, and still not released" :)
  14. There are too many things going on with the realism in A3 with regard to the AI's ability to know someone is there even when they have cover. The 3den Enhanced helps control the spot distance, but I don't think the mountains, and terrain is actually blocking the radial spot awareness of the AI. Here are a few examples: A tank comes over a hillside and wipes me out every time I hit replay, even though I'm hidden further into the woods while my 12 guys are out in the open. even if I move to new positions before the tanks gets over the hill on my side, It's as though the AI is programmed to target the player more often then the enemy, ...while my guys were out in the open.A tank comes over the hill and wipes out about 10 guys in a matter of 3 seconds, even though the guys are all spaced out at distances from each other of about 30 to 50 feet, and they were commanded to take cover before hand. How in the world would a tank know where everyone is that quick? My friend is an Captain officer in the Army, He's says it's BS. It would take the tank some time to aim at everyone. I can change this behavior with the 3den Enhanced AI settings, but why is the setting so jacked up by default.I'm in prone position sneaking up on some guys in front of me who are about 100ft behind the hill I'm crawling up: about a second before I can see them through the weeds I'm already being shot at and killed by the infantry on foot. It's as though the radial awareness of the AI is NOT being blocked by terrain or even trees. Last point. I realize that the "tanks" and even the infantry have heat sensor abilities, but then wouldn't the other army have heat deflector outfits to help a little? And how can they detect heat when your behind a hill? And it's not like every squad or platoon has that ability at all times. Either way, even if they knew I was there as soon as my head peaked over the hill, there is no way someone can aim and kill me every time on their first shot from 100 feet away while I'm laying down. Unless it's just luck. And the AI seems to have a LOT of luck in A3. The question here is: is the spot distance blocked by terrain? Hills, Mountains? ... Or is it NOT?

    [WIP] UK Maps Pack

    Uk Maps Pack! Firstly welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my post. A few months ago I learnt to make maps for Arma 3. After reaching a stage I felt I would be able to give it a shot, I made several small test maps to have a look at the functionality of Terrain Builder. I have now begun making my first official map for Arma 3, it will be a UK based map, as stated in the topic title. It is based on a small Island called Fair Isle (See Here For Location) I will try to be recreating the Island as accurately as possible, this may be difficult due to the cliffs that surround its cost line & the angle at which the cost lines drastically changes but I will give it my best shot! I will be creating custom buildings for this Island as well, this will increase the immersion and benefit missions scenario. But this will be a secondary aim as I want to get the map created and A3 buildings in as place holders to start. Also every map will have a winter variant so there will be a large variety of maps and seasons. For Details about the map and its towns, airstrips and layout see the image below. Map Screenshots Below is an album I have created that will be continuously updated as I add more locations and features. It currently includes one map location in early development, general screenshots and some building models in early development. http://imgur.com/a/bCsRt The terrain will take priority over the models, the map will hopefully be released for Christmas in working order to allow people to give feed back, any issues found with the map will be fixed by next release in February next year. Please be aware that I am the sole developer on this pack so it will take time to finish but i will be working as fast as possible with the intention of the best quality possible. Please leave any comments that you have here I will try to respond as quickly as possible!
  16. Hi all i was just wondering if it would be possible for someone to help me with my terrain. First off i used Stratis's config.cpp as a template and changed it suitable to my needs for my island. This means i used Stratis's lighting and my terrain is supposed to be dark and somewhat gloomy, but it is bright like a Greek island, would it be possible to ask someones advice and what lines of code in the config i could change to achieve this effect ?
  17. This terrain (as some will know) comes from the world of A Song of Ice & Fire or more commonly known as Game of Thrones. It is the entire continent of Westeros (plus the Stepstones). I have been wanting to start a new terrain project and decided on going with this. I think it will be a great terrain for Arma 3 because besides its GoT connection, it offers various biomes and topography. It will also give me a reason to build a bunch of castles on the map :P. I am working out the total size of the map still, but it is looking like it is going to be at least 30km x 30km. Any and all updates I have on the terrain will make their way here.
  18. http://i.imgur.com/VRZ07q1.png?1 (183 kB) Gorgona v1.51 by Major Desync Description: Gorgona is a small island located in the Ligurian Sea, 37 km off the west coast of Italy and 35 km north of the island of Capraia. Inhabited and fortified since ancient times, it is now home to an agricultural penal colony, housing 50 prisoners, including those convicted of murder and other violent crimes, as well as Mafiosi. The prisoners work the island's farms, moving freely around the island by day tending crops and livestock, returning to the prison buildings before the evening curfew. In the history of the prison, only one prisoner has escaped, though it is not known if he survived the long swim to the mainland. (Source: Wikipedia) Though based on the real island of Gorgona, this terrain differs somewhat from the actual island. Firstly, the terrain is larger - measuring 3.7 km from north to south, and 2.6 km from east to west (compared to 2.1 km and 1.6 km respectively for the real island). Secondly, the terrain is a lot less steep than the real island. Finally, while the terrain's buildings and roads are based on the real thing, I've taken a lot of liberties to produce some interesting locations for Arma3. Gorgona's size, topography, ground cover, and locations make it perfect for small-unit infantry actions and stealth missions with an emphasis on close-quarter combat. Features: Terrain dimensions: 4.1 km x 4.1km Terrain area: 16.2 sq. km Island dimensions: approx 3.7 km x approx 2.6 km Land area: approx. 6.5 sq km. Heightmap resolution: 4 m/pixel Elevation range: -50 m to 230 m Approx 112,000 objects Hilly, heavily forested terrain, with large olive plantations, and rocky shorelines. 1 main village, with several surrounding farms and compounds. Locations: Prison, junk yard, port, helipad, cemetery, castle, radome installation, military camp, research station. Screengrabs. by 12reviewman. Changelog: Beta v1.0: Released. Beta v1.1: Released. Changelog: Fixed: Keypoint text colour more legible Added: Seabed texture, clutter, rock outcroppings (and a surprise or two). Added: Several small ruins and a small comm compound to wooded areas Added: Secondary entrance to Military camp, plus several new lights to camp and radome. Added: Security fence, gates, new lights to Helipad. Beta v1.2: Released Changelog: Fixed: Smoothed and widened several lethal gullies around the coastline (some are now good clandestine landing spots!). Fixed: Several misplaced objects (tree bin by prison wall, street lamp in town building and others) Fixed: Ground clipping through floor of several buildings. Added: Randomisation of orientation of most trees and bushes to give a more natural look (Thank you to Jakerod and his excellent Atlas terrain tutorial for the pro-tip!) Added: Box pier to harbour area. Added: Pier ladders to square water tanks to allow entry and escape. Added: Break in fence around Helipad. Thanks to Granis, Zonker3210, TokyoIndia, Gav and Jakerod for their feedback for improving the map in this version Beta v1.3 Released Changelog: FIXED: Buildings and markers not appearing on editor and in-game map. FIXED: Crash on exiting Arma 3 after previewing Gorgona in the editor. FIXED: Intermittent issue with activation of environmental lights on first load in to editor or missions. (It seems these issues were due to incompatibilities between new type 60 p3ds introduced in recent Arma 3 updates and BIS Binarize. Beta v1.3 uses type 58 p3ds, which apparently fixes these bugs, but may cause other unforeseen issues.) Thanks to Mikero for his latest Tools update for making this fix possible (and to Twelvecaliber for the tip). Beta v1.4 Released Changelog: ADDED: A few minor cosmetic tweaks to road paths (near Gorgona Scalo) and to the pier at the harbour in Gorgona Scalo. ADDED : Short road segments to gated compounds to allow AI to path through gates better (hopefully). ADDED: any changes to objects introduced in the latest (post-Nexus) version of Mikero's Arma3p. Beta v1.41 (Hotfix for 1.60) Released. Changelog: TWEAKED: Config and surface textures updated to 1.60 standards. This fixes the 1.60 Black Sky bug. ADDED: Some clutter objects around the helipad. REMOVED: Target range objects from the military base. Unfortunately these were crashing MakePbo for some reason. Thanks to james2464 and Makhno for the necessary know-how. v1.50 Released Changelog: Visual optimisation - Making Gorgona Splendid Again. ADDED: Green grass texture plus clutter. ADDED: Three large olive groves on the previously bare slopes on the east side of the island. ADDED: Miscellaneous trees and bushes to blend better with new, darker sat image. ADDED: Functioning or new lights to various locations, inc Gorgona Scalo, the prison and the military base. TWEAKED: Config lighting settings. TWEAKED: Sat image and mask image - there are some changes to the distribution and extent of the different surface textures. TWEAKED: Texture PAAs - to better match updated sat image. Stony PAA swapped for soil PAA. TWEAKED: Clutter on dry grass textures. TWEAKED: All non-concrete roads changed to dirt trails. Thanks to t800a and Cype_Revenge for visual optimisation hints and tips. v1.51 released Changelog: FIXED: Ingame map grid is no longer divided into two large-scale grid squares. Thanks to Makhno for the pro-tip. Known Issues: None currently.

  19. Size: 5120x5120 Hello everyone, I'm currently working on a "small" terrain based on the city of Haditha (Al-Anbar Governorate, Iraq), which is situated next to the Euphrates river. It features real (?) elevation data and satellite imagery, a little portion of the Euphrates river, various small villages and the city centre. Haditha is currently very wip and I don't know when it'll be finished, but I surely know that it will, somehow. I'm trying to make this terrain as realistic as possible and, possibly, decent enough to be hosted on the holy site of Armaholic so... feel free to criticize my work, suggestions are always welcomed. Thanks: - I would like to thank mr. Delta Hawk for his magnificent, classic units that inspire me a lot and keep me constantly focused on Iraq related stuff. P.S. This discussion is wip too so better pics and information will be posted in the future... stay focused. These were the only pictures available.
  20. Hello evereyone! I googled anything i could think of, there are some similar issues but not really like this. So, i'm working on my first terrain and i exported it for testing the clutter and in the map i noticed something strange http://imgur.com/D89CxRR Then,closely http://imgur.com/NiUtNQt http://imgur.com/AkHxF74 And in Bulldozer http://imgur.com/7fJg4hJ The terrain is 1024x1024 by 10 in ASC format from L3DT. I saw that other users have similar problem but with peninsula terrains, and they solved the problem changing something in the config. How can i solve this? Do i need to go back to the start?
  21. Hello ArmA 3 Community. For the last 4 months i've been working on a terrain called "Finland". It's a fictional terrain based off Finland, the country with the 1000 lakes (and a few more). This is not a release but an inside look at what it will turn into when it's finished. Finland is a winter terrain at the size of 10 x 10 km, all of which is playable. Features: (so far) Custom Trees (A2) 1 Big city 2 Airfields, 1 military and 1 civillian Few military outposts and bases scattered across the map. Couple of small and medium sized villages all across the map. Lots of lakes (It's finland after all) Lots of mountains. A big easter egg (physicly big) https://gyazo.com/0249191e61b5cbf357b78846d2c863d1 https://gyazo.com/c77d388d13640de5ab3ae4631ed67068 https://gyazo.com/198fc7a43c1ca300984df17db51049e6 https://gyazo.com/d1740f7c859a897f70cb0bfeac15b699 https://gyazo.com/2c5da9ef2cc25fa8f37cc3d42e8b3032 https://gyazo.com/5c242f4eed67279c1d6f93cb20512368 https://gyazo.com/c15876b640c9985dbd899d1f6f2d8d66 https://gyazo.com/b3528ce3ce716b86e3e68dffbd7fd934 https://gyazo.com/09493ee068d2d42cca6abd874a57fece https://gyazo.com/40824d0d3f10360ac4542824b584145b Planned Features: 1 more big city Few more villages Complete second airfiled Flatter roads and much more. I am happy for any feedback that i can get, positive or negative :) Thanks for reading //Cookies
  22. SOLVED: I didn't think to load the template libraries from the old project before attempting to import the objects via exported .txt file. I got sloppy and disorganized across a bunch of folders and decided to start a fresh, consolidated project in terrain builder for my island and I successfully imported the old terrain, satmap, mask and all that. Everything is there, including the roads. However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to export and import all the objects. I've tried exporting them but they just go into a "file" file and do not show up as a choice when I go to import them. Anyone know the trick for this one? The terrain is identical, I just need the objects copied over in their correct locations. Thanks for any help on this one!
  23. Your New Map Looks Great! However, the well known terrain problems are so disheartening. Every player here has seen, and has had to deal with floating rocks, trees, bushes, AI, and Players due to terrain not displaying properly. No setting tweaks fixes this %100. The closest thing we can do is SEVERELY limit our view distance to the point where it is a handicap. Seeing players, objects, or AI through mountains and hills takes away from the game, and is borderline infuriating when you are shooting at something that is really on the other side of the mountain, but you can't tell until you shoot and watch dirt exploding where their body is. Terrain is crucial to a MilSim and just gameplay in general. Can you tell us that you have addressed this!! The screenshots I provided are nowhere close to the worst examples of this problem that EVERY player deals with. If you have better examples guys, post your pics!!!! (In my first picture...these AI were actually on the opposite side of the mountain...)
  24. Hi. I'd like to ask you where you want that i have to started making/ expanding bases. You can choose from three options and if you choose "Another" please write which terrain you want. Best provided terrain that is already released and not in the WIP. Thanks EDIT: If you choose one of these three options please write terrain which you want for example European terrain - Chernarus etc. or ME - Zargabad etc. i hope that its clear. Thanks Greets DonbassCZ
  25. I have decided to continue with a map project I started a few years ago and had stopped due to the upcoming release of Arma 3 and it's new tools. I have managed to get my map into terrain builder and finally working in game which is great. My problem is that I had started creating some custom bridge models in oxygen and I was able to add them add to my map. These models were very basic just mostly for show with no physical properties and config files etc. I am using pboproject to pack all my terrain files and models into two pbo files one for my map and one for custom models. I can pack the terrain files no problem but when I add my custom models to my map pboproject stops at my models with the following error xxx.p3d needs to be in temp as binarised. pack your models, or copy over a binarised p3d When I use binpbo I can pack the models and they appear in game so I'm not sure if it is my setting in pboproject. I can pack the models using addon builder but I still get the same error when I try to pack my map with pboproject I am not sure if it's the folder structure I have or my pboproject settings. PC Folder structure and Pboproject settings http://imgur.com/a/D1qNG Models from Arma 2 map http://imgur.com/a/SDeEI I'm running out of whiskey trying to sort this out !!!!
