Carraigdubh, Co. Leitrim

A 5x5km Geotypical Microterrain



*** St Patrick's Day Special Edition - Beta v0.8 ***




Introduction

Once again it's time to inflict my obsession with landscape & natural environment modelling on a wider public!
This time the excuse is, of course, St Patrick's Day, and the landscape in question is an entirely synthetic representation of a small area of County Leitrim, one of the northern Counties of Ireland - close to the border with Northern Ireland.

Unlike my previous "Geotypical Microterrains" which were essentially public exercises in terrain modelling & texturing, this terrain is considerably more "finished". My central focus, as usual, has been on creating a believable natural environment (that part is mostly finished)... but this time there's actually a few typical locations to visit (these are considerably less "finished" and will be expanded and added to for the final version)...

Geology & the Local Environment

County Leitrim contains a great variety of landscapes....

Missions!

Pretty terrains are all very well, but without missions to actually play they're just so much scenery... I'm therefore particularly grateful to the Mighty Wolle, who selflessly sacrificed his couple of days off this week to convert some classic missions for Carraigdubh...

co06 Cleansweep BAF
A recreation of the famous OFP mission, set in the main town of Ballybrian.
co06 Bardak's Toy
Bardak has a new toy, it's up to you to break it for him...
co06 Sgt Moore BAF
After one guinness too many in Molly McGlone's, Sgt Moore has managed to get himself kidnapped - again! Fortunately we had him tagged after the last episode, so your team can track him down using your high-tech Beepy Thing.
SP Steal The Tractor
"You're in position Pat, so you are..."
Someone has stolen Patrick O'Brien's tractor - he knows who they are and where they're hiding and he's going to get it back so he is!

*** all missions included in the main download ***

Excellent map, thanks.

Only 1 minor suggestion, you could probably remove 3 in every 4 of the road side bollards, maybe even more.

Cheers! Was hoping someone would do that. :)

I can't say enough good things about the quality of this map. The colors, the layout...pretty much everything screams "beautiful"! Heck, I wish I lived there after flying around it a few times. :D
