[WIP] Iwagi, Japan

Postby cring0 » Sat Jul 02, 2016 5:01 am

Figured while I'm here putting Aaron to work, I could share what I'm working on.

Iwagi is a small island located in the Ehime prefecture, kinda in between Okoyama and Hiroshima. It will be an addon for Arma 3. I'm planning on using assets from the Apex expansion, and so it will require having the expansion to play. Right now, it's a total of 6x6km(I guess that could possibly change if it's too small). The island itself is roughly 4x5km. I'm using a cell space(hoizontal scale) of 3m, which is slightly less than what is suggested by all the Arma terrain gurus, but I'm hoping with it being a pretty small terrain it will work out alright. While I tried to keep a lot of places true to it's IRL form, I'm mostly limited to Google streets and as such I'm completely winging most of the island. Besides that, it needs to be military friendly.. so I completely chopped the top of the mountain and I'm going to put a military base there. =]

I think I started working on Iwagi in February of this year. Originally, I had started with a completely custom terrain taking bits and pieces from all over the world in Google Earth Pro and piecing them together like a Frenkenstein. After a year of killing myself I decided to jump into a smaller terrain and use a real world place. This will be my first terrain for anything. While, I'm not sure it will be suitable for anything milsim related, I'm hoping to be able to use it for Battle Royale and/or maybe some survival mods.

I'm almost done with the first pass of shaping it up in L3DT. Next, I believe I can push it into Arma and check it out, see if things are to scale, check the water level, make sure I have enough room to place certain objects, etc. Then I'll need to come up with a mask image for the ground textures and start placing objects.

I don't really have many pictures or videos yet, but I'm usually streaming on Twitch when I'm working on it. Once I can get it working in Arma I'll take some snapshots and make a video.

I'll be back once I have more.
