Cya in the
Here is a Google Earth kmz in which Tankbuster's Takistan map (teamspaff.co.uk) is translucently overlain over the Yakawlang district. Just install Google Earth, and then double-click on the kmz file. You can then adjust the map transparency if you wish. With the layer loaded in GE, you can do 3d fly-throughs and other visualizations of Takistan.

That's really cool! Nice job.
Wow if we only had this for chernarus too...
Yes, Tonci87! I thought that Chernarus was imaginary, using synthetic terrain. Is that true? If not, where is Chernarus in the real world?
I got a 2047x1982 pix map of Chernarus from arma2base.de, but that is not of the quality and resolution of tankbuster's Taki map. Can we get our hands on the official map from http://www.arma2.com/arma-2-chernaru...narus_en.html? That one is flash-embedded.
Here it is for Chernarus!
KMZ file for Google Earth (it's on hosted on Czech upload site, with multiupload currently down it was the simplest one for me to host it. Just press "Stahnout" button to download it, or switch to English with the little flag in top right corner)
It's a quick-n-dirty job I cobbled it up in last 10 minutes, so it's a bit rough round the edges and the registration with map could use some tweaking, but it should be about 95% accurate. You can see BIS altered the terrain features somewhat, mainly the coastline (well, riverbank in RL) and the area around Usti nad Labem and Decin (which are cities right at the edges of map, where it would make no sense ingame to have outskirts of a big city). But even the forests and treelines are true to RL. And it's a nice place for hiking in RL, with other parts of Ceske Stredohori (the western part SW of Usti nad Labem the most beautiful IMHO )
Cool pic looking west from near Zub castle just south of Vyshnoye:
You can even see the radio tower!
Makes me want to get on a plane now, permanently move to Czechoslovakia, and apply for terrain developer job at BIS!

It looks similar from a distance, though, eh?
