Looks interesting. Has there been any significant improvement since the video was posted? I mean, it kinda just looks a little empty in some areas. Still a great map, I'll download it tonight

The partial emptiness was something that bothered me in the OFP version already. Doesn't have to be detailed as Chernarus but a lot more vegetation wouldn't hurt. Maybe some more forests as well.

Open fields are great for tank battles :)

I think because PMC Rugen (as well as Rattler and partially 51km desert too) are so old terrains that they already have nostalgic value, I wont go changing them too much. Old timers from OFP times remember the horror of CATSHITONE deleting whole cities in his CAT Afghanistan terrain out of the blue so that is definitely what I want to avoid, meaning I don't want to change the terrains anymore.

If anyone has some specific ideas how to add details to them without changing the "gameplay", please share I'm willing to consider all good ideas.

Oh btw Rugen will get update sometime in the near future as I prepare it for ArmA 3 by lowering the ocean bottom to suit the upcoming diving features. Right now the bottom is plain -50m elevation, flat as a pancake.

Perhaps some random tank wrecks, an abandoned camp... some light forest, like, perhaps just for Sh'ingiggles you could add a small forest with a heli LZ/Camp in the middle of it?

:D

Thanks for posting the release here :-)
I have also updated all the old pages we had with the new versions of the AGS Harbor Pack and the AGS Industrial Pack.

I downloaded the Island from the PMC site as it appears the links for it on here were not working at the time. (I did send in a broken link report) I also updated all of thee required AGS addons to 1.4. I placed it in a MOD folder. I went into Editing and selected the Island and after about 5 seconds of loading, the game crashed with an error message that reads;



"Warning PreNLOD format in object pmc\pmc_rugen_obj\pmc_bridge1.P3d"

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have not seen that error before.

What version of ArmA 2 are you running, not that it really matters but is still interesting to hear. Can you also describe what kind of mod dir and command line parameters did you use to run ArmA 2?

Let's see if we can figure out why its crashing for you.

# Snake Man : I have not seen that error before.

Let's see if we can figure out why its crashing for you.

Currently, I'm running 1.60 and I've never had to edit the command line since Combined Ops came out. Currently, it say;
"C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\arma2OA.exe"

However, Arma 2 Vanilla, OA, PMC, British Forces are all active through the normal "Expansions" option on the main game menu. Its rare that I get any error messages at all, let alone a cash to desktop.

Added 4 minutes later:

The only thing I can think of off the top of my head to ask is 1.60 a beta patch? Because I hve one of the beta patch down loaders but its set to allow me to decide whether or not I want to run it. (Normally, I don't use Beta's, just don't have enough experience with them.)

The betas have nothing to do with that. The warning message is caused by an object on the map which most probably was ported from OFP but now causing problems, in this case a bridge model (pmc\pmc_rugen_obj\pmc_bridge1.P3d).

I gonna try the map on my own later and see what it does here with vanilla 1.60 installed.

If you do a google search, you find plenty of results with this PreNLOD error.

Edit:
I don't have that PreNLOD error (yet) and no crash either but found this problem with the bridges:


When you are close to them, they get completed though and you can pass them with no problem.

I however have a lot of missing clutter warnings:

I still don't know what that prenlod error is, I never had it myself. Google results suggest its some broken data in the pbo ie bad install or something, no idea. Can you please list the addons in the mod dir(s) you're using when launching arma2 with PMC Rugen?

W0lle yeah the bridge is known issue I believe some other user made terrains have this problem too, I've investigated it but can't see anything wrong in the model. I'll keep digging if I find some fix for it.

As for the missing clutter objects, I've noticed I have no addon dependency for them so PMC Rugen lets it load itself without the clutter addon, good catch I'll fix that for next release (in fact, already fixed heh). The first post above says that required addons are:

AGS Industrial Pack
AGS Harbor Pack
PMC Terrain Clutter

Foxhound could you please add PMC Terrain Clutter into the required addons list in the new/download page, thanks.

Argh my fault with the terrain clutter. Haven't checked the first post but went to the downloadpage here where it's not listed then.

IIRC the OFP bridges were longer (50 meters) than the models in ArmA (25 meters) which would explain the picture. Just not sure why they "autocomplete" when you come close. Not really a problem, just looks a bit odd.

Initially I had over a dozen addons and/or MOD's running but I than scaled it back to about 6 different addons, which was going to be the ones I used for a mission itself and it still crashed. I haven't gone down to "bare bone" yet.

New version frontpaged and you can find the updated mirror here:




The pages have all been moved to the OA downloadsection and list Arma 2 as a requirement meaning it is a CO release.
