Hello Arma community, I bring to you my first map release. I have been inspired from recent visits to this actual location and decided to bring it into game for all the flyboys and helicopter nuts out there.

The machloop is a low flying training area used by the armed forces in the UK for extreme low flying maneuvers through valleys and hilly terrain. The area I have used is known as the mach loop due to is locality near Machynlleth in wales. More information can be found here for it.

I hope that people enjoy this map, even if you are not a pilot for the game. you will still enjoy weaving your way around the valley and enjoy the scenery.

I have a 1m resolution satellite map which also features RAF Valley.

RAF Valley is located off the North West coast of Wales on the Isle of Angelsey. RAF Valley is home to the Hawk T1 and T2, which are used as training jets for pilots in the Royal Air Force.

This map does not have an abundance of objects on it, as it was primarily built for flying intentions. To keep the FPS high and the view distance far enough, you can get a good feel for the speed. I have been contemplating gradually updating the map and incorperating things like trees and rocks. This will need to be tested before an update is released. The airfield is the only place that has objects atm.

To install the Machloop you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Included files:

version 2 is in the making. Bigger, better and badder. You will like this one! More info is on the BI thread. For now you can still dl version 1.
