is working in a new map called Sakakah Al Jawf
Sakakah is a Saudi city located in the northern Al Jawf provinces, found the city while scouring Iraq (actually) for cities of usable size in ArmA. The city is ca. 50% original size, this is caused for the most part due to game play purposes and some for actually being able to ever finish it, but it's still a pretty big city compared to anything else seen in ArmA.
The main purpose of creating it was to bring something similar to that seen in the VBS terrain modules, but still playable with ArmA's non optimized objects( although that remains to be seen..).
* Development Notes:
For Opteryx it runs in a similar frame rate as Sahrani and sometimes even better, he hasn't really done much testing but it seems playable.
As you've probably have noticed the terrain is rather flat and monotonous, this is due to that Visitor has a bug in the release candidate where's manual terra forming doesn't get saved, this is also a very good reason for me being reluctant to release it at this state, hopefully a full Visitor release is imminent.
Another thing is that the Satellite image looks rather monotonous too, originally he tried using some real satellite imagery, but being a crap PS user didn't get me very far, so reluctantly he had to resort to making my own. He might try and give the Sat map some variation somewhere in the future, but He's not promising anything due to the fact that it requires some rather good PS skills and is quite time consuming.
