CAT Afghanistan

CAT Afghanistan upgraded by AGS ported to ArmA by PMC.

This is Afghanistan terrain and objects addon from Operation Flashpoint ported into Armed Assault. Its a advanced port, several modeling errors were fixed, textures merged and models optimized as well as config tweaked. No content have been added (except terrain has no ocean now, ie this is a terrain, not an island) or removed. There are no soldiers or vehicles in this addon.


Initially this addon was released to OFP by CAT_SHIT_ONE (gotta love his name), there was couple of versions released which caused havoc in mission making community as whole cities were removed from the island.

Then Agent Smith (AGS) released new version of this island CAT's Afghanistan Revisited.

I was talking to AGS in 2007 and asked if I get permissions to port CAT/his Afghanistan addon, he said yes no problem. First work was done long time ago but now this last push was done in couple of days time to get this ready for release. Why to release? eh dunno, wanted some more porting training, O2 time and learn more things which I can put into PMC Editing Wiki (which I did btw) heh :)

See some screenshots here: image1, image2, image3, image4.


You can find the AGS credits list in docs/credits.txt file. Besides that PMC credits Agent Smith for doing the last OFP work on this addon and now granting us permission to port it into ArmA. Also all the community users who have been posting constructive feedback, YOU guys made this new version possible, thank you very much.

--- bugs
- Lots of plants and bushes are floating.
- The tarmaced roads slow you down, the dirt roads don't.
- The Airbases runway, damages your plane as you takeoff and land.
- AI planes don't see the mountins or steep hills, and crash or nosedive into them.
- Some roads are so steep that no car or tank can climb them.

--- unconfirmed bugs (fixed in v1.1 or not?)
- hmm....roads dont seem to work.
- Walk in the dark with luminous and flying plants.
- most of the laders don't work
- some buildings are to high (compared to the ground level) so doors are not available
