[black]Camp Lejeune - Combat Town[/black]


I have now released my Camp Lejeune Combat Town Map. It is a 1kmx1km Map, High Detail, High Res Satellite Imagery (1m/px). The map was designed more for training and practicing scenarios.

Been in the works for about 2 months, had problems with getting Data etc. I used a 3m DEM of the Area along with a DigitalGlobe 1m/px Imagery File from the Net.

Anybody can use this map. Any commercial use, not that they will use it, is allowed.

A town used for urban assault training out it the boondocks of Camp Lejeune NC

Here is few tips how you can improve your releases:

- do not put screenshots into your release packet.
- make sure to delete hidden "Thumbs.db" files from your release packet.
- no readme in the release, none.

About screenshots, why do you add screenshot into release packet, do you think a user cant wait for one minute when he copies the addon into ArmA mod dir and fires up ArmA to see for himself? (Not to mention your screenshot was 2mb in size).

The thumbs.db file is nasty as you cannot usually see it in your windows, but some utilities create them (possibly some image viewer you have), but always check your packed RAR what has been actually packed there.

And readme... stupid users don't ever read them, but its even more stupid to have release without one. No offence to you, there are countless releases without readmes. So please add readme which states clearly what this release is, what are the required addons, who made it and authors contact information.

When you fix those, your release quality jumps to a next level, trust me! smile.gif

Oh, and inside the pbo there is 63.5mb worth of PNG files which are not used by the game engine.

Man you really need to pay attention to your releases, you've already made so many terrains that these kinds of errors aren't really "oops" shoulder shrugs anymore.

I've spent many a day in South Carolina, and I have to say you definitely captured the feel of the place. Great work. Do have any plans to expand it. I hope so. It looks great.
