Very nice island
Well of course this island is different. He changed the name. It's called Central Afganistan not southern like the last one.
What makes this one better are
2) new kinds of destroyed buildings
3)Big arse mountains!!!!!! I problably crashed a plane into one of these 4 times out of 7
You don't understand. ***There are some of us who have been working very hard making some kick ass Afghanistan missions. ***This map *REPLACES* the old one and because it totally changes the positions of cities and the terrain, it makes ALL our hardwork USELESS because most people will have updated to the new version of this map. ***If this map was just a new map showing another section of Afghanistan then it would not be a big deal, but since it replaces the older Afghanistan map it is a very big deal. ***Other map makers almost never do this kind of switching around of cities and terrain in different map versions because of how badly it pisses off mission makers. Just imagine how pissed off missions makers must be who have already released their Afghan missions (based on the older version to all the OFP sites).

cat ur a very good map maker
i just prefer ur old afghan island
since u change the map drastically why dont u just release this updated map to just another map since it keeps on changing from southern to central
why dont u just have two maps
so the old map doesnt have to be updated so u get two maps instead of one since also its a 44mg map
its like dl ur old maps was for nothing
and the island is totally different so y not naming the pbo differently so we can have the old 1 and the new one
therefore technically u made two maps because they dont look like each other and have different names
Any word on how close this is to the final?
Its a really great map, but as I found a couple of versions ago, theres little point making missions for this map until the map maker decides what he's doing with it.
Shame about Naguals missions, they were fantastic ...
yeah i loved that southern city, i made some awesome missions in there involving technicals and such. But i realize that there were lag problems with it for some ppl. Like Miles said, i would also like to see that Camp built up, in the previous version there were a few towers, a building and a wall or 2. Maybe you could make the airport there as it was a nice and flat area
Very nice island, great textures and new buildings...my only complaint is that the citites aren't named, so to find cities/towns, you've got to zoom in your map in the editor and manually scan around for groups of buildings...
