    It is the layer mask, I merge the layer mask with the satellite mask as a guide but don't worry it wont be there when the island is done

    Its 1024x1024 so about (25x25km) but its not about the size of this island its about the detail and other things like the tunnel, large cities etc... I prefer a smaller island with lots of detail then a large island witch brings nothing new to the game.

    I just don't like 10x10 maps too much, I like to fly, I like to search around for stuff in helicopters, so 10x10 maps do not offer much for me.

    but glad it's 25x25, that's the perfect size imo.

    looking forward to it!

    I agree with you on that, but the thing I noticed is that small islands with high detail aren't really going to be used by the community as frequently as big Islands with an acceptable grade of detail.

    For example Kellu, my first Island for ArmA2 featured a lot of new objects/ideas, but it's still very rarely being used. Celle on the contrary, a 10x10km map with fairly high level of detail has been put to good use on several occasions. Both maps had new buildings and interesting landscapes designed on purpose for Missions in common.

    So I believe that, when it comes to Islands, size does matter.
    Therefore I think that 10x10km Islands offer a great deal between size and amount of work/effort it takes to create them.
