Central Germany Map
by FatSquirrel

This is my first official custom Arma 2 map!
Features:
  • 10km x 10km map
  • based on real world satellite image
  • 20+ Village Locations
  • 1 huge military training area
  • all buildings are enterable (MBG Buildings)

There is still a lot missing:
  1. most villages are not done
  2. Airport barely started
  3. not all forest done
  4. lots of streets missing
  5. an actual name for the map
  6. and the military training area

Here are a few pictures to show you briefly what its about:


So please let me know what you think of this project and what you would like to see on this map!
*BYE*

Looking really good! Will be great for my Cold war missions especially that schmeltz is my favourite map because of the Awesome buildings it has!

Update #1

This is a small Update to the map because I had so little time the past few days.

Changes:
  • Changed the general style of the villages (sidewalks and backyards)
  • Completly redone airport (new Taxiway)
  • Added more forests
  • Started on military training area

I have on more question: Would anybody be interested in watching me live stream editing the map?
You could then ask me question in the chat or even join our Teamspeak and talk to me and learn something new :)

Just let me know what you think!

Great work!
Looking for exactly this kind of Terrain.
Any releasedates in mind yet? :-[

Sidewalks and everything. Sounds perfect for infantry based cold war gone hot missions.
Would have done this myself, if i´d know how to write configs and edit terrain. And if i had some time :D.

Live stream would be great, but even better to upload those, once the LS is over, to youtube.

Realy looking forward to this one. Keep up the fine work! WWIII at it´s best.


Q: what´s the cell size?
SubQ: will there be some ditches besides the roads? or perhaps stone walls?

yours

Hey Solesurvivor!

I really can tell you when this will be released! :/
It will still take a long time to complete but I have got time!

Try making your own map! Please dont be scared! Its easier than it seems once you´ve seen it!

Let me know and I help you out with your configs!

I´m thinking about making a tutorial but live streaming is way easier ;)

Cell size: 10
Creating ditches will be quite difficult but I will add stone walls and guide rails at the side of the roads!

Thanks for your feedback!
More Updates coming very soon! ;)

Very nice project. Although personally, I would not place that airfield there - I would shift the map a bit to the east to include the real-life Mahlwinkel Airbase..;)

Anyways, good luck on a great project!

Here are some suggestions if you are making an 70s/80s german map.

Add a large railway through the centre of the map, this is a strategic target, add a police station to one of the towns, and also squat house, some signs and posters would be good

You could call it "FULDA" as in "Fulda Gap". Alternatively "Ansbach" or maybe "Grafenwöhr"? "Schweinfurt"?

Looking at google Earth maybe "Creglingen" as it's isolate and well away from Cities and surrounded by small villages?

I think a Cold War reference is in order. If you beef up the Airfield maybe name it after a US Air Base in Southern Germany like "Ramstein".
