=BTC= Al Jak


Al Jak is a fictional terrain located somewhere in middle-east.

I decided to create this map to test the real power of Map Builder, infact the heightmap has been created with L3DT, sat map and mask with PhotoShop and the objects have been placed with Map Builder.
Thanks to this mod Al Jak has been created in less than 2 weeks, I have to thank Jona that helped me to place some objects in Multiplayer mode ( yes you can with MB and it's awesome).

Some techinical data:
heightmap: 512x512px
cell size: 3 m

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:
- improve sat map and mask
- add picture map
- add few more villages on the mountains
- add more details to the city

The area is very small, but i'll plan to expand it if the map turn out successfully.
Few zones are still WIP, but I'll be away for few days and i decided to release what i've done so far.

- first release
