Aussie released an updated version of his Australian Map on the BI forums.
Quote : Welcome to Australia island addon for Arma 3. This is a Work in Progress but I have decided to release to the Public to get some feedback on How to improve your playing experience. The version is now 2.0
This island took many years to complete, Ive worked on it when I have had free time, I hope you like it, The island is 8 times larger than Altis and is 1600Km2 compared to Altis 270Km2.
I've left areas in the cities for RPG players to add their own buildings, there are police stations but they are not open (as I didnt receive the scripts from the maker).
Hopefully I can get them so you can use those buildings. I also had to remove some custom buildings as they were causing game glitches.
The Island is 40km x 40km which is 1600Km squared, to give you a comparison Altis is 270Km squared. Tasmania is the same size as Stratis.
It takes approx 40 mins to cross the island in a BIS hatchback and approx 25 mins to drive from Perth to Darwin along the west coast road. There are 3 different types of desert ground textures from Red desert sand (which slows cars down) to dry riverbed textures which are good for hiding vehicles in.
Australia Island features 9 large airports with Green Map Icons showing Airports that have Autolanding features enabled. Blue map Icons display Manual landing features. The map screen also shows police station Icons and Hospitals.
Each capital city has a large Hospital we may build our own later. There are also plenty of fuel/service stations as fuel does become an issue after a while.
increased the stars brightness and changed color of moon slightly

After 2.5 years of work, I finally finished my Napf Island. It is a terrain for Arma2 OA that is 20.4km on 20.4km in size. While the norh part is rather flat and is the home of most of the big cities, the south is dominated by mountains, forests and wilderness. The map is based on real elevation data from a region in Switzerland, but the towns, roads and forests are highly fictionalized.
- The terrain for my Napf-Island was made based on real DEM-Data with a 30m on 30m grid. The mountain "Napf" in reality is located in Switzerland (long/lat in Real World: +47°0/+7°56'). In the real
world, the south shore of my island is formed by the Lake of Brienz ("Brienzersee") and the Lake of Thun ("Thunersee").
- However, I squeezed about 100km on 100km of real terrain into a 25km on 25km map and I also smoothed the terrain. My Napf is not the real Napf in many aspects: I placed towns and roads where
I thought they made sence, not always on real places. The names of the towns and hills are a mix of faction and fiction, as indeed is the whole island.
- The work for this island started approximatly in August, 2011. However, I was busy bitching with Visitor3 for more than a month. Still, the work behind the island is insane. The town of Chatzbach,
for example, took me one day and one night in a row (I worked on Chatzbach 17 hours straight). I dont think I will finish the Island: Arma3 is on the horizon.
- However, I intend to end the island to the point where the main Ring Road (Chatzbach->Münchenstein->Muttenz->Lenzburg->Lausen) and the terrain surrounding the road is complete. This would
also include building the main town and an airport.
Smoothed out some roads still WIP
Smoothed out some buildings that you would have trouble getting into without vaulting
Fixed Red/White Road blocks with stops signs from being offset (still have to find some)
Quote : Esseker region, named after it's largest city, was once a tourist paradise, rich in folklore and natural beauty and inhabited by simple people who's tradition and hospitality charmed people all over the world. It was a region in the rise, a beacon of hope to it's otherwise poor country. But when the virus broke loose , it stood almost completely defenseless. Flocking visitors brought the virus to every corner of Esseker before the symptoms even started showing. By the time medical teams from the neighboring countries landed in the hopes of combating what was then an unknown disease, the infection had already turned into a pandemic. Local military attempted to quarantine the region with the help of UN and US forces and USAMRIID established a temporary military camp with a bio-hazard laboratory but before they could grab a real foothold, the pandemic turned global. The military force, being spread thin across the globe was forced to abandon the region, leaving the civilian populace to fend for themselves. Now, in the aftermath of a global event that wiped away more then half of the world's population, Esseker is a home only to the brave and the insane.
Couple of new locations
A lot of work on existing towns
Aded first section of the railway
New location "Villa Victoria Hotel"
Reworked satellite map and color scheme to fit new Arma 3 visual update
hcpookie released an updated version of his An-12 CUP on the BI forums.
Quote : Imported the An-12 from the "Free Planes" A2 pack by Mukcep. For CUP factions (of course).
Edit to include - the An-12 is roughly analogous to the C-130. So think "Russian-built C-130" and you're pretty close.
Added a few features starting with THREE distinct models. While there is a TON of different versions, the 3 main versions I have included are:
An-12B "standard" cargo transport model. For both CIV and MIL. No countermeasures, radar, or weapons
An-12BK "military" transport model. Only for MIL factions. Flare countermeasures and radar.
An-12BP "military" transport model. Only for MIL factions. Flares, radar, and tail gunner.
- "Jump" script with working lights, automatic ejection of cargo soldiers
- Working rear gunner seat on "-BP" model
- Random skin textures based on faction and class. Russian AF skins, "Rest-of-World" AF skins, CIV skins, UN skin
- Flares and radar missile warning on military models

The UNSUNG Mod Team informed us they released the Bravo version of their Unsung Vietnam War for Arma 3 on the BI forums.
Quote : We are proud to announce that version 3.0b has finally landed. It has taken a little longer than anticipated however, the mod has undergone a massive overhaul since the Alpha version. We have added a great amount of new features and content to keep you busy until charlie release arrives. Expect Unsung 3.0b to still have some bugs it should be considered a WIP release and not final , as we progress though each subsequent release to bring the most atmospheric Vietnam experience to the arma universe.
We have also included a optional uniform download pack. It is not a requirement to run the mod but we highly recommend it be used to enhance the mod further. Link is found below
We want to thank all our affiliates, arma friends and other arma modding groups whom have helped bring this mod to life.
And of course to the community and fans whom has patiently waited and gave us words of encouragement as we progressed, it really means a lot to the team.
