New York City, USA

Description:
The terrain is 16km^2 big and is true to the real scale of the area..

Mask/Sat: 8192x8192px
Height: 4096x4096px (1px/m)

This map still is in a work in progress stage, if you notice any bugs please report them.
Due to ArmA´s content limitations you will notice that the Island doesn´t look exactly like the original but I tried to keep it as close to it as possible. In addition to that I couldn´t find heightfield data which is why I had to try to recreate it by hand. I will try to improve this terrain over time but as it is I deem it playable.

My current priorities are a expanded Brooklyn so that players can use the bridges properly, completing the planned Manhatten area and then completely reworking the satellite texture.

--Real location--
This map is a recreation of Governer´s Island, Liberty Island, lower Manhatten and parts of Brooklyn. I am trying to recreate the real terrain as close as possible however because of the limited building resources I will take some artistic liberties.
