Djalka is a fictional 32.6km^2 ArmA 3 terrain version of the South Georgia Islands, located to the further east of Argentina past the Falklands / Islas Malvinas and were part of the conflict at the time. It is a snow-covered tundra-like terrain, with many mountain peaks, long roads and drives, many towns, military bases, factories, deep sea, and a lot of ocean and air environment for diverse encounters of all types. The map contains a lot of diverse areas ranging from populated cities to complete open terrain, alongside coasts and rocky mountains, vantage points on landmarks, and much more. There’s a few easter eggs and the maps is to be updated more in the future. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Georgia_and_the_South_Sandwich_Islands Download: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1990519900 Launch trailer: Images: https://imgur.com/gallery/QtcMIGT Map: The goal was to make a fun, big, and distinct snow terrain that’d scratch the itch the ArmA 3 community had been having for a snow/winter-themed terrain. The map is also located in a location uncommon to videogames and ArmA 3, which is in South America, east of Argentina - the forgotten island that was part of the Falklands conflict. The map is by no means similar to the real-life location, other than the shape and structure of the terrain. All the cities, military bases, farms, landmarks, and so on are purely fictional for recreational purposes of the terrain. This was a personal project I embarked on when I was 16 in highschool. It was my 2nd map attempt and a more serious and big one at it. I ran into a lot of technical issues, a learning curve, and on and off work trying to juggle real life, my other hobbies, computer problems, high school, and college. Most of the work in this map was done around that time. This project first started in March 2017, and after lots of work, I am happy to release it for people to enjoy and have fun missions on. There is more to come, as I plan to upgrade and do more detail work on this map. I am open to suggestions, and if anyone wants to volunteer ideas or help with object placement, feel free to contact me.

Djalka WIP Thread In-game pictures, screenshots, wips, and demos will be posted down in the replies as I update the thread! Hello there! Here I will present my personal and fictional representation of the South Georgia and Sandwich Islands, which is a snow/winter terrain based mainly on the South Georgia Island; with the slight modification of making it a habitated and populated place, to make things more interesting. Cities, military bases, villages, farms, factories, ports, and much more are going to be present in my rendition of this unique geographic area, hope you'll enjoy to join me in the journey of making it, and even more once it is released! Release date: February 7th, 2020. Latest update: February 3rd, 2020. Map Images https://imgur.com/gallery/QtcMIGT General Information and facts In this thread, I will try to keep a development diary and a place to know how the development of my project "Djalka Islands" is coming along. The island is based off of the South Georgia and Sandwich Islands, it is a fictional recreation set in an alternate reality, cause in real life these islands only have snow and mountains, no trees nor civilization. On the other hand, my version will contain flora and fauna, and also cities and military bases. The island size is of 1000km2, 32x32km. In real life, these islands are always under very cold and snowy conditions, there's only been civilization (a factory) for a very short period of time in reality but I believe that is no longer functional, currently in real life the place is completely empty, but that will not be the case for this fictional recreation! 😛 I decided to make this map as plenty of my friends and people I knew were telling me that ArmA needed more snow terrains, so here I will try to get it around and hope for the best! I decided to make the South Georgia islands is it was both something that could fill the gap for the lack of snowy terrains, and also cause it was a place I could feel identified with 🙂 I will also be accepting suggestions and ideas, or things people would like to see featured! For example, would you like to see a mine? Caves? Ditches and trenches? Just say so and if you want where would you like it aswell and it take a look at it and see what can I do! Project started: March 2nd, 2017 Current progress and features (currently Work In Progress) -3x Military Bases -6x Factories -10x Cities -5x Farms -Many mountanious peaks that go from sea level to 590m -Sea approximately as deep as 300m -Distance from one corner of the map to the other: 32.6km -Custom snow ground textures -Current object count: 103k -A lot more to come as I develop, many things planned for the future! 🙂 Current release status: Fully playable state, everything is ready for release, all that's left is details and embellishments. First release planned for Friday, February 7th.
