MaxRiga: Terra is too big project right now (not to mention that we would need new object packs), I'm fully busy with Isla Duala after the release of Panthera v2.31.

New details: Isla Duala is bigger than Panthera, around 56km2 of mainly desert, savannah and jungle areas. Its very similiar to OFP's Tonal regarding the vegetation and setup. Old Tonal users will find themselves in familiar areas, but of course layout will be different and objects up to date with current technology ;)

Isla Duala will be primarily intended for:

- anti-terrorist coop operations when you have one active FOB

- brand new TvT gamemode where two leaders have to take care of their country (North or South) and both can declare war or peace. Your platoons have to patrol border and report back if enemy is gathering troops in certain sector so leader can send in reinforcements. Although 56km2 sounds small at least 50 players would be needed for that kind of TvT mission ;) Side wins when they control enemy's Capitol Town and have in control theirs.

- typical Domination/Warfare scenario

you do another island, so maybe on this island you can do war-zone ?

something like Kolguyev was, some area of destroyed cities, ruins etc.

it would give "there is real war" atmosphere "D not only peacefully and good conditions

Looking GREAT so far IceBreakr!

I haven't seen Tonal in a long time, but I remember...

Little shantytowns with corrugated iron huts...

Piles of old tires...

BIG Grass! - like - shoulderhigh elephant grass... (just looked like ordinary grass but Really Big - theres a couple of clutters that look similar - maybe they can be scaled up?))

A quite big town that was all sortof rundown and crumbling - once probably quite nice tenement/apartment buildings with balconies people RPG'd you from as you drove past in the street below.... quite Mogadishu-esque...

Swampy areas where you were ankledeep in water but still surrounded by jungle - just deep enough to make going prone a Bad Idea (the AI didn't behave well in those areas sometimes tho)... Sometimes there were deeper areas - you could boat thru the jungle like a mangrove swamp almost, and it was all misty and confusing - with those wierd unidentified jungle ambient sounds...

BIG Sunsets! - really awesome purplesky ones... (dunno how effective setting the lat long settings in the island config to equatorial would help there??)

Will try to recreate some areas, but as far as I've been looking Tonal is missing a lot of details that is possible to do in A2 now ;)

Mangroves and jungle is already on the map, mainly E part of map and there are streams that you can traverse with small boats.
