The light version of the SMD Sara A2 Full Sahrani Map Port
which excludes the assets, and units.
SMD_Sahrani_A2 - A community open source project dedicated to improving Sahrani and it's native Buildings. We have extended the reach of this project to include custom assets, units, and vehicles as well.
What's the Difference between smd_sahrani_a2 and Caa1 Sahrani, or even A1 Sahrani?
1. There are Dozens of opened, or improved variants of the native BI Buildings. SMD Building Features include:
- Animated doors (and in some cases) shutters, and windows.
- Several buildings with SFX to accompany the door movement (Ammo Bunker, All Garages, and Aircraft Hangar)
- Individual shattering panes of glass
- Improved pathings, roadway, and other LOD's
- Animated Destruction for Doors on 2 buildings with 2 variants each
- Animated Destruction for 1 Building from roof to foundation. Blow it apart bit by bit
2. Countless object placement issues have been addressed 1 by 1 making for fewer misplaced or overlapping objects/buildings
3. The Ground textures have been replaced with higher resolution textures (from cgtextures.com) and the blend has been customized by M1lkm8n
4. The Grass and Clutter blends have been customized.
M1lkm8n has really gone above and beyond on this latest update (v1.1.0). Check out the Changelog for details but we have several newly opened buildings as well as a complete round up and standardization of the LOD's for ALL the previously opened smd_ buildings.
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ
