Djalka is a fictional 32.6km^2 ArmA 3 terrain version of the South Georgia Islands, located to the further east of Argentina past the Falklands / Islas Malvinas and were part of the conflict at the time. It is a snow-covered tundra-like terrain, with many mountain peaks, long roads and drives, many towns, military bases, factories, deep sea, and a lot of ocean and air environment for diverse encounters of all types. The map contains a lot of diverse areas ranging from populated cities to complete open terrain, alongside coasts and rocky mountains, vantage points on landmarks, and much more. There’s a few easter eggs and the maps is to be updated more in the future.
The goal was to make a fun, big, and distinct snow terrain that’d scratch the itch the ArmA 3 community had been having for a snow/winter-themed terrain. The map is also located in a location uncommon to videogames and ArmA 3, which is in South America, east of Argentina - the forgotten island that was part of the Falklands conflict. The map is by no means similar to the real-life location, other than the shape and structure of the terrain. All the cities, military bases, farms, landmarks, and so on are purely fictional for recreational purposes of the terrain.
This was a personal project I embarked on when I was 16 in highschool. It was my 2nd map attempt and a more serious and big one at it. I ran into a lot of technical issues, a learning curve, and on and off work trying to juggle real life, my other hobbies, computer problems, high school, and college. Most of the work in this map was done around that time. This project first started in March 2017, and after lots of work, I am happy to release it for people to enjoy and have fun missions on.
There is more to come, as I plan to upgrade and do more detail work on this map. I am open to suggestions, and if anyone wants to volunteer ideas or help with object placement, feel free to contact me.

-Three new locations have been added! The islands of Fuegian, Nasua and Warrah are now live and in-game! You can find Fuegian towards the north of Correa, and Nasua & Warrah towards the northern side of Soto.
-Other minor adjustments such as extra scenery have been added, bit more of object placement, and other details.
-Fixed scenery, changed some assets for better ones
-Fixed missing signatures and server keys (Thanks [BD] Bear for informing me of this issue!).
-Replaced the old trees for CUP trees, loading times optimized (Thanks Ice for the pointers!). Some trees do not match and are currently placeholder - will be replacing them for more colourfully matching trees in the next updates.
This was a quick fix to get dedicated servers working and loading times optimized for now.
