one major thing is Armed Assault has no deep water ports none of the BIS islands are set up with a functional port, they just have marinas. and from info I got from Gnat that no user made islands that are binized will work for ships they will just not move under AI control. so as it stands they are kinda just floating targets unless BIS fixes the user binize issue and releases the unbinized Sahrani Island for editing. even if the ship has it's own cranes to offload containers the BIS islands "ports" are still waaaay to shallow and most are waaay to short for large ships.They a deep water harbour is 15+ meters deep so 20 meters is perfect and most need to be over 400 meters long with room at both ends to move in and out of the dock.
well im making a few very large off shore ports for a very large and detailed template for sahrani(and the other bis island)! i will eventually release it to the public..if any one wants it! but i will release a few docks/ports as standalone mission templates(that maybe edited..seeing how all the objects are in the editor)! so @calm_terror if you want a copy now for testing.. hit me up! they do not have any actions and its not an addon! but you can copy and paste them anywhere! and i will make them to you specs, and they should be good for you cargo ships!
it would be cool if some one could make it an addon so when you place it on the map, it is a single object! but there is no such thing..so this is the best i could do!
