The terrain is 400km^2 (20kmx20km) big and is a true to scale recreation of the Senkaku Islands.
Height: 4096x4096px (5px/m)
In my mind, the map is best suited for small carrier operations in cooperation with amphibious warfare.
It might also be interesting to people that are playing with the HAFM Navy mod, I will try to improve the underwater terrain in the future.
Most people should be able to play on this map with full view distance without any performance problems.
This map is a recreation of the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea. I tried to get as close to the real location as possible, but did take minor artistic liberties to make the map just a little bit more interesting (Added a radar station; moved Kuba Jima a little south to make it fit on the map)
To install Senkaku Islands you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

-Additional minor military camp on Uotsuri-jima
