Hello!

Some of you may already have an older version of Favslev 2.0, because it was released through bohemia's forums by me some time ago (Last year). Alot has changed since though, I cant remember every change as there has been alot of small ones.
So, admins you can either edit, update or remove the old favslev download in your download section.

The main changes however, is that all the terrain north of 'Marens Revne' is now completely altered and much more hilly and realistic. Also, im changing all the woods completely, (amount of trees, types etc) and adding bushes to the bedfloor. Most allready changed north of 'Marens Revne'. (Changes will follow south of this "river" at some point).

So.. If you are one of those who where a bit bored by 2.0's terrain or simply have overlooked it, try 2.5.

I should menition that it will now remain as 2.5, I wont change the name anymore through beta/final release.
The developer build version will be showed ingame when choosing maps.

Please note that progress on my map(s) tends to go very slow, so now you are warned :P


Favslev is a 10x10km map from one of Denmarks biggest military tank and infantry training areas. Merged with real sized Skrydstrup Fighterwing's NATO standart airport.

Focused on gameplay, as an example grass is no higher than you can look over it while lying down etc.
Terrain heightmap is mostly custom, combined with a roughly estimated heightmap where sattelite is mostly real. In large scale, very flat... In small scale, alot of small dents, bumbs and holes.

Denmark (Holsterbro meets Skrydstrup)
No central city or village.
A lot of open space, fields and military training grounds.
Big forests.
Big fields.
Small farms everywhere.
A river, starting from N-W, fading out and getting shallower towards S-E.
Windmills.
Black spotted shadows in sattelite texture included for free!

We have used this map alot in my own clan and continues to do so.


This is the latest developer build (DEV102) as we are playing it right now.

Reaching out


Hi guys.
So with the release of Arma 3, and the AiA mod I tried using the Favslev map together with AiA. The only thing thats keeping me from working on this map anymore is the possibiliy of it not working in the future with A3. I dont want to waste my time.

Arma 3 crashes if used by AiA+Favslev2.5, and so does it if I use another map im working on. Therefore I sort of think that somethings up with my configs. However, config's and scripting is my weakness.

If anyone happens to know whats up with that, I'd be happy to know because I really got no clue at all.
I should mention that it worked in the A3 Alpha and started crashing when the beta came around. But in that time I cant remember the amount and number of changes to the map so I cant conclude that its the alpha/beta change or the map that caused it.


Thanks in advance.!

You where right. He does know everything. *THUMBS UP*
So, he found the error which was a config thing.


Now, favslev works beautifully in A3, using the "A3MP" addon to enable A2 maps in A3.

Im replacing all textures from scratch, higher resolutions and messing with them a bit in photoshop to make it look nicer.
Also, adding a beach on the entire east side of the map. Inspired from our huge danish.... west....-side shoreline... But it fitted more on the east side of Favslev. *DONT_KNOW*

Now for some screenshots, and Im happy with it so far. It looks really great in A3, but please remember theres still alot to do. Im gonna release this if Im happy with the outcome when Im done. This is a huge job for me, especially when considering im not even playing/using this game anymore! *CRAZY*

Texture difference (not the same place, but pretty much sums it up)
Map selection

Shore
Training-grounds / forest
Training-grounds / forest 2
Training-grounds
Training-grounds 2
Training-grounds from above
Boats at river (river crossing the entire map NW to EAST, exiting in ocean)

Hope you guys like!

Hi danish Friend,
i´m an old german (1963) from Schleswig-Holstein. I did a lot of Vacation, Fishing and Military Exercise with the danish forces until now with the danish HJEMMEVÆR.
I like your map, because he brings me back in the lovely action of these days.
I like the Landscape in your Part of the country. I trained in my active time with my Brigade (Tank Brigade 18 -Holstein-) together with the Danish Dragons under danish und german command in ComLandJut for 12 Years of duty.
I was sitting on M48 and Leopard 1 also on the Foward Command Post of the BRigade Commander.
Nice Work that u bring to Arma 3.
I switched from Arma 2 to Arma 3 an we still play the Maps in my little Clan.
We play Celle 2 and Favslev and playing in your Map is like comming home.

I can only help by testing because i´m to old to learn map making and scripting.

thanks for your work

Andreas alias NightStalker from 12th GLF

Hey everyone, I tried to use Favslev 2.5 with All in Arma, it crashes in the loading menu after i place the unit in the editor and hit preview.
Muggi, You said he helped you with the config error, could you tell me how to fix my favslev 2.5 to make it work for AiA like you fixed your new one?
Thanks
