SMD Sahrani A3


Sahrani, the original terrain from Bohemia Interactive's "Armed Assault" is being lovingly brought up to current standards and beyond. M1lkm8n and myself have spent countless hours documenting and fixing placement issues, bugs, and shortcomings of the terrain. Further, M1lkm8n has opened, improved, or port forwarded 100's of BI buildings and objects. Special attention has been paid to every minor detail and that same faithful attention to detail will be continued as I take the project forward.

Sahrani is a fictional mid atlantic island that features varied terrain, dramatic views, and amazing city design. SMD Sahrani features:
- Dozens of newly opened BI buildings
- Dozens of improved previously enterable and unenterable BI buildings
- Added shatterable glass, animated doors, shutters, dumpsters, wells, some SFX, some animated destruction
- Improved ground textures
- Building and object placement corrections
- Arma 3 Weather, Lighting, Ambient Life, and Tiling issue fix

For a comparison, I've made a short video of a quick walk around, and then a helicopter flight along basically the same paths, at the same date/time (sun is totally differently oriented due to the A3 weather I THINK?)

The Arma 3 Lighting and Weather makes an ENORMOUS difference along with our changed textures, and a recent change to our midrange texture as well. I will be tuning up all the textures for A3, as they all come off a bit too shiny right now.

Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:

You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.

And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.

Included files:

Future plans for SMD Sahrani include but are not limited to:
- Alteration to bathymetric data
- A3 underwater coral and sea plant clutter
- Possible increase of Terrain Resolution (currently 2048x2048 10m cells, might upgrade to 4096x4096 5m cells)
- Physx Lods, A3 Materials, and corrected configs for ALL buildings and objects
- Modern RACS, SLA, RSPD, and UN factions and vehicles
- Inclusion of United Sahrani Terrain, and Building updates
- Further terrain and Building changes to reflect a longer passage of time post United Sahrani

POSSIBLE Terrain/Building Changes
- Removal of all Tank Traps

The current release is dependant on AiA_TP.
The current release WILL CONFLICT with SMD_Sahrani_A2.
