    mankyle informed the community he started working on his next island "Porto Santo".

    Quote mankyle :
    I'm now working on a 1:1 reproduction of the portuguese island of porto Santo. That's an island near Madeira.
    Sat has been done taking GE images
    - Terrain is 90% done. Only small tweakings left for adjusting objects positions.
    - Preliminary Mask with 6 colours. Will try adding more colours to see how it ends. Textures taken form Arma 1, Arma 2 and A2: OA.
    - ALICE and SILVIE modules compatibility added.
    - War module compatibility added (City centers and bunkers are automatically added in warfare missions.)
    - 1 airport. (Works with AI too)
    - 1 LHD placed in the map.
    - 99% of the road net has been added.
    - Only Arma 2 objects have been used. Won't need OA.
    - I would say around 30% of the objects have been added. Now I'm adding fences, walls and sidewalks (OMG, it's boring)

* Arma 2 - Real Warfare Soundmod

    Konrad1 released a video in which you can hear the new sounds which will be part of the Real Warfare Soundmod him and AK are working on.

    Quote :
    AK want to present you the new sound mod we working on. I know there are many soundmods momentally out there.
    But there where not 100% good enough for us so we started to make our soundmod. This soundmod is tried to get very close to realism.
    Some of the sound are real recorded we got samples from some soldiers. We also know that people have different "tastes" so also haters will be here .
    But we hope that some people will like it much.

    The Balkan War Mod is based on what happend in Yugoslavia the war was mostly fought in entire territory of Bosnia and northern and estern parts of Croatia.The factions will be based on three sides that were fighting in Bosnia
    Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina(ABIH), Army of Republic Srbska(VRS) and Croatian Defence Council(HVO).The weapons that were used in this conflict came from all blocks for exmp. there were Yugo-made arms , Soviet ,western block, even WWII weapons left from German's ,Soviets there were even Sherman tanks ,T34 ,flaks and so on.

* Arma 2: OA - WarFX : Blastcore

    Opticalsnare released a teaser video of the soundmod showcasing the A10.

    Quote Opticalsnare :
    Heres a little teaser from the soundmod showcasing the A10 taking off and flying about a bit. It uses about 12 differnt sounds ranging from front and rear of the turbines, distance, speed and power etc. Im gonna do a proper HD video sometime but this should do for now. Anyway what you think, the textures are also blastcore but may not be released as they use modded .p3d files.
