  1. Ergon County Ergon County is a fictional terrain based off of the rocky mountains in Canada and the USA. Dense forests with tall trees covered in snow litter the landscape of Ergon County with its vastness. It has recently seen increased military presence with new bases being built and an airfield where trespassing is punished by death. However it still remains a place of civillian life, even with the increased presence of military personell. You can find several villages / towns scattered around the landscape whom with their presence, represent a peacefull and quiet region. What is Ergon County? Ergon county is a map that aims to bring more of the winter aspects into ArmA 3 and to provide a new fun and greatly detailed map for people to play on and enjoy. Note: Ergon County is still in heavy development and such, bugs are to be expected and if you do encounter them, please send information about them to me as it will help me get it out of pre-alpha sooner. If you have any feedback or suggestions to the map then feel free to leave a comment on the workshop page or contact me directly through steam. Terrain Features: Size: 4.10 x 4.10 km (16.81 square kilometers). Winter: Ergon County is a land filled with snow and dense winter forests which brings you a not as often seen aspect of ArmA 3 Variety: Scattered villages / towns whom are greatly detailed as well as several military installations scattered around the region with a personal military airfield. Dense forests: Instead of the usual style of forests which are a bit open, the forests in Ergon County are truly dense and give you the feeling of deep and vast forests. Open areas and accessable buildings: Ergon County offers a lot of open areas and locations which are perfectly suited for player-made areas such as camps or bases. Almost all of the buildings are enterable as well and the aim is to replace non-enterable buildings with enterble buildings. Planned features Atleast one more airfield (civillian most likely) as well as more military installations. Additional settlements such as villages and town but also possibly camps / smaller wilderness settlements. Added detail to the whole of the map, including the areas which are not "inhabiteted". Known issues: Airfield not completed in regards of ai being able to land there (planes). Changelog: Licensing and usage: You are free to use this map on any server you'd like. If you're however planning to edit it, please contact me first (via steam or the forums), I will most likely say yes as the primary purpose of asking is for me to have an idea of how many people are editing and their reason for it. Download: Screenshots (more available on the download page down under the update replies on this topic).
  2. BARIGA EDIT: 1.2 out: - Transformed the terrain into an island (no more infinite stripes of land at terrainborders) - fixed and added some rock formations and a few objects - terrain outside satmap fixed (isn't that obvious anyways, as that part is covered by water now...but still a minor improvement) - little Improvements at the surfacemap 1.0: I've finaly published my first arma 3 terrain on the steam Workshop: Armaholic download now available: Mirror also avialable (still 1.0. unfortunately I'm not able to log in at the moment ): DESCRIPTION: This terrain is completely fictional and not based on any realworld location. I tried to acchieve a look that differs from other terrains, as it is always nice to have some variation. Background: The area of Bariga had to be evacuated because of an incident in a research facility nearby. Nobody ever returned and the evidence of the escape in a hurry still can be found all arround the settlements. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- some specs: size: 25 km² about 300000 objects (mostly plants though ;-) ) custom terrain-textures ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is my first terrain ever, so please be dulgent ;-) SCREENSHOTS: And as requested... SATELLITE IMAGE
  3. Happy Saturday! I would like to share some pictures of a terrain I've been working on for the last few months. I am planning on releasing it either on Steam or Armaholic very soon! I am using it as a testing ground for some custom winter-themed .p3d objects (which I am new at making). This is my first terrain and my first mod, and if I were to start over again I'd do a lot of things differently, but I want to publish this either way because I think there needs to be more arctic themed-maps. Right now I am more interested in starting a new project than I am developing this one much further, so I would potentially be open to sharing the source files with someone if they wanted to further develop this. Russian Fjords is a top-secret government military zone, where high tech weapons, vehicles, and equipment are developed and manufactured. It is centered around a deepwater bay in the arctic ocean, and there is only one well-guarded road in or out. The terrain design is somewhat experimental, with some underground tunnels and a high resolution heightmap. The map could be used for sabotage, espionage, intelligence gathering, or even some kind of James Bond themed machina. Honestly you can use it for whatever you want, it's just not really designed to be used for traditional mission based gameplay, it's more meant as a decent-looking, immersive, cinematic landscape than anything. Features: - 8x8km Arctic Map with 6 custom ground materials (Thank you to Dmitry Chugai of for the ground textures) -Heightmap, Attributes, and Sat map created using L3DT Pro and MS Paint - Unique modeled and textured .p3d objects (Snowy fir trees, space rocket) using 3ds MAX and GIMP - 10,000+ hand-placed objects - A long road which goes all the way around the map and took foreveeeeer to level out - An industrial port, and a military airbase, and several military research areas - Several road tunnels - No mod dependencies, should be compatible with any other mods Known issues: -The stock arma 3 rocks do not look "Great" since they are not covered with snow. When I started this map I did not know how to do custom objects at all. -I have not tested this map with AI and don't know how they'd behave, especially in caves/on ledges -The caves are questionable and I wouldn't recommend making a map with them the way I did. The rocks do not occlude light as you'd hope. - Because the heightmap resolution is 4m, some areas are sharp and bumpy, and depending on your terrain LOD setting, distant terrain can look kind of bad. On my next terrain I'll be using at least an lower heighmap resolution to prevent this, but I am not planning on going thru the entire map and fixing every bump at this point - The ocean goes from shore to super deep very quickly. I do not plan on fixing this - I have messed with the rain settings in config to try to make the rain look more like snow but maybe some people will think it looks funky now. I think built in snow support in Arma 3 would be sick, but for now you can at least use some snow scripts ( is one snow script, but the PPEffect color correction can make it very bright and hard to see anything during the day. tweak the script as necessary) - There may be issues with my custom objects that I'm not aware of, I'm very new to making objects Planned features: -Creating snow-covered clutter, and objects such as bushes and rocks, maybe icebergs, improving the look and functionality of objects -Adding some more docks and smaller decoration-type objects such as fences -Possibly Adding some runway overlays -Properly naming and labeling all locations on the map in Russian/Cyrillic -Possibly moving the zone of the map north so that the days are shorter -Continually improving my understanding of how to write a proper config (snow particle effects for driving in the snow is one thing I have yet to master) Please let me know if anyone would be interested in working with me on this or a future projcet! I am open to working with others! Thank you!
  4. Hello there! I'm Rhaonoa. Here I will present my personal and fictional representation of the South Georgia and Sandwich Islands currently in very early development phase, as a upcoming ArmA 3 winter/snow terrain, "Djalka Islands". The terrain in it's current state is only about 5% complete, and there will be a LOT more to be added, fixed, adapted and corrected, as this project has just started (there will be flaws and etcetera that will be fixed before the release), and there will be a long process and diary of work! Here on this thread I'll be posting my updates and progress on this project. It is my second map project ever, and I will try to do the best I can with it, and to learn on the process! :) Project start: March 2nd, 2017. Planned updates to the thread: Every 5 to 15 days approximately Last progress update: March 22th, 2017. A few very early development previews: Map 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! :P 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 use the South Georgia and Sandwich Islands as a sort of wink towards my nationality, as I am Argentinian, but I do not want arguments nor discussions about who the Falklands or the South Georgia and Sandwich Islands belong to, as I do not care and we do not need to argue about that, but be a community and remain together to have fun :) I plan on expanding this thread as I progress. 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, 2 days of object placement as of March 11th, 2017): -2x Military Bases -2x Factories -9x Cities -5x Farms -2x Ports -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: 20,058 -A lot more to come as I develop, many things planned for the future! :) Summary: Terrain sculpting & additions: 70% Object placement: 6% Detail placement: 1% Satellite imagery textures: 95% Ground close-up textures: 95% Roads & paths: Yet to be decided Surface masking: 95% Current release status: In intensive development, not fully fleshed out nor fit for playing. Unreleased. Release date: Currently unassigned Future requirements upon release: CUP - Core, by the Community Upgrade Project development team Special thanks & creidts: -BPS and PTR for their permission to use their winter vegetations -ArmanIII for his permission to use his winter vegetation and his helpfulness -Community Upgrade Project team for their conversion of the ArmA I and II assets to ArmA III -Snake Man, Lappihuan and M1lkm8n for actively helping and answering questions I've had in the Discord #terrain_makers channel! -The ArmA III #terrain_makers Discord chat, and all the help and support from diverse community members -XCam for their amazing tool -Bohemia Interactive for this opportunity to make our own content, and for such an amazing game! So yeah, I'd be glad to hear what you guys think, what you guys suggest and your ideas, or anything, just discuss as you'd like, hope this interests some of you! Soon it will be a place for combat and many adventures! :P Thanks you for your time and for visiting my thread! :) Kindest regards and best wishes, -Rhaonoa, R.G., K9S.
  5. Hello there! I've been looking into trying to tinker around and learn how to make snow maps for ArmA. Although the satellite image and other settings are very simple to do, I was wondering - but what about the trees, the clutter, and the houses? They'd all look as if they were normal, green trees, green grass/bushes, instead of white or houses sort of covered in Snow. So here I ask, does anyone know anywhere we can get assets (Mods or alike) for a winter map? Or reskins of current in-game things to make them fit in a snowy environment? Also, it'd be really nice if it comes from an accessible author or if they're allowed to be publicly used! Thanks you!!! Kindest regards, Rhaonoa.
  6. This terrain (as some will know) comes from the world of A Song of Ice & Fire or more commonly known as Game of Thrones. It is the entire continent of Westeros (plus the Stepstones). I have been wanting to start a new terrain project and decided on going with this. I think it will be a great terrain for Arma 3 because besides its GoT connection, it offers various biomes and topography. It will also give me a reason to build a bunch of castles on the map :P. I am working out the total size of the map still, but it is looking like it is going to be at least 30km x 30km. Any and all updates I have on the terrain will make their way here.
  7. Uk Maps Pack! Firstly welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my post. A few months ago I learnt to make maps for Arma 3. After reaching a stage I felt I would be able to give it a shot, I made several small test maps to have a look at the functionality of Terrain Builder. I have now begun making my first official map for Arma 3, it will be a UK based map, as stated in the topic title. It is based on a small Island called Fair Isle (See Here For Location) I will try to be recreating the Island as accurately as possible, this may be difficult due to the cliffs that surround its cost line & the angle at which the cost lines drastically changes but I will give it my best shot! I will be creating custom buildings for this Island as well, this will increase the immersion and benefit missions scenario. But this will be a secondary aim as I want to get the map created and A3 buildings in as place holders to start. Also every map will have a winter variant so there will be a large variety of maps and seasons. For Details about the map and its towns, airstrips and layout see the image below. Map Screenshots Below is an album I have created that will be continuously updated as I add more locations and features. It currently includes one map location in early development, general screenshots and some building models in early development. The terrain will take priority over the models, the map will hopefully be released for Christmas in working order to allow people to give feed back, any issues found with the map will be fixed by next release in February next year. Please be aware that I am the sole developer on this pack so it will take time to finish but i will be working as fast as possible with the intention of the best quality possible. Please leave any comments that you have here I will try to respond as quickly as possible!
  8. Welcome to Alaska. It's 2035 and eastern aggression has brought war to the wild frontier of Alaska. Working within the constraints of Arma 3 vanilla content, I am working to bring a representation of a war time Alaska to life. The terrain is at a point where I can release the alpha version. Please feel free to post your comments, questions, and complaints about the terrain. Keep in mind that there is still A LOT of work to be done, and is by no means a finished project. However, the terrain does have some areas that could definitely be played on.
