* Download not available

Dimensions: 80km x 80km / Scale 1:1

IMPORTANT: Currently the land has the satellite, mask and normalmap, Clutter and Surface, Roads, and some rocks, has not yet stringtable, but in the future the respective names of the Cities will be enlarged according to the English or Spanish language.
I am working in the lakes, and carrying the buildings of the OFP mod (courtesy of CBFASI).
The terrains, besides their extension, have real depths (the best satellite information I found), it is perfectly navigable, in fact the main purpose of the terrains is to be able to recreate historical aeronautical and airborne missions.


Modify the extension of your mission folders "san_carlos" to "mlv_west"

*This is because soon I will add a smaller area exclusively for the San Carlos area
