Description:
This is a heavily modified/redesigned and updated version of CypeRevenge's "Lost Island" (Original can be found at http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=28356 )

Krasnorus is a small island in the baltic sea that is slowly developing from a rural countryside island into an increasingly more urban and developed trade location.

There are a great many changes to the original terrain including an entirely new city in the SW corner of the main island and serious modification to the heightmap. The heightfield resolution is 4x higher. The ground textures and clutter have been entirely replaced. The satellite texture and mask have both been completely redesigned from scratch. Many objects have been replaced with A3 objects or my own custom assets.

The terrain features a completely custom lighting setup and uses a custom textured skybox for better visual weather.

Terrain specs:
Size: 10.2km x 10.2km
Cell size: 2.5
HM resolution: 4096
Sat/Mask resolution: 20480px
Lat/Long Coords: 21.744/-58.153 (in the Baltic Sea)
~410,000 objects total


Installation:
To install Krasnorus 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.
