Island Of Nicosia [for arma 2]

Version: Beta v4.5
Release Date: 18th July 2010

Updated: 7th September 2010

Notes: This island is currently under development and very much a work in progress.
*would love more help from experienced island makers building bridges etc, as this is my first project! im still in need of help.

Details: The Island Of Nicosia is an island built mainly for jungle warfare, with vigorous mountainous terrain.
With the main US airbase in the south west of the island which is very big and can withstand any amount of aircraft as of this moment.
The Airbase will be your life line in and around the island, with main roads through and around the place there is possible chances
to be ambushed by enemy forces, including rebels. Jungles compared to the movie
"southern comfort" where a squad of marines get lost in a hillbilly forest then hunted!

To be done: Cities, Offtrack roads, Named areas, Electric powergrid, Power lines,
more clutter/bushes etc (only trees so far), street lighting,
2 main bridges linking the island (need help with this), mountain top military base, swamps, big open areas toned down to more cqb style areas,
plus tonnes more! (suggestions etc are very welcome)

Features: Colour Modules (from Sumrak "Namalsk"), CEG Power Grid Support, Aircraft Carrier Support, Big city docks,
Mountain top military base / Miles and Miles of dense jungle and swamps / Years of warfare all over, ie; bunkers, wrecks, ruins.

Known Issues: In Beta Testing.

Special Thanks: Bushlurker, Sumrak, Katipo66, also BIS for a great game.

Looks great so far, I love jungle and swamp terrain (to bad it doesn't like my computer). It fits the ArmA series perfectly. And like Fox said its great to see Island Makers, theres are not that many modders really churning out islands (Icebreakr and Ebanks are the only two I can think off that create alot of stufff) and more islands are always welcome.

Keep up the good work.

Armstrong-"Hey Carillo, do you see that?"
Carillo-"See what?"
Armstrong-"Something's burning over there, see the smoke?"
Carillo-"That's not smoke it's dust!"
Armstrong-"Dust? i don't get it."

Thanks for your words Nightrain, just want to ask though - "doesnt like your computer" you mean lag? or something
with the map is causing it? lol.

Also ive just decided to start work on 2 others, more info here: BIS Forums Topic.
As well as ill be releasing a newer version of my map Nicosia soon also with so much work been done since the first beta.

Thanks again :-D

Thanks Foxhound.

Here is a Airbase Template to use on my island! its just a simple spawned stuff at the Airbase, planes, choppers, ammo, cars, etc...

Download Here!

To use it just follow these instructions:
Extract the folder to your ArmA2\other Profiles\Yournick\Missions and load it in the editor.
[Of course you will need my island also] :-D

*Update for the island itself will be coming in about another day or so with much more improvements. ;-)

I've been watching this map come along and have been really wanting to see the Domination be published and was really happy to see that you released it!

I was wondering if you could release a version that was non-ACE? I don't have the skills to do this myself (trust me I tried with previous betas and failed magnificently!

Awesome, thanks for the quick reply! I'll try and keep an eye on that other forum to watch your progress and Armaholic main page to see when you release a non-ACE version.

Thanks for doing that! I'd love to learn how to do the coding so I'm not so dependant on others to do something that I figure I could do myself but the community and I appreciate your hard work for us!
