View Full Version : [Map] Yamalia

2010-02-01, 12:57
Here is my second map for 0.9, Yamalia =) Its based on lowlands on northwestern area of siberia and has Canadians vs Russians. Map is combination of open bogs and taiga forest. Hopefully visual look makes you feel like being in middle of nowhere in siberia. Im sure having to walk through 4km map with no vehicles at all makes you feel just that ;)

Gamemodes
Map will have 3 layers for standard AAS v3 gamemode, there is actually about 17 flags in the map but only 6 of them will be randomly picked for each round, so there will be lots of variation when it comes to flags =) There is also the new Vehicle Warfare gamemode, and CNC and Skirmish.

Vehicles
Just kidding about no vehicles =) Both teams has plenty of transportation, including APCs, trucks, jeeps and helicopters. Tanks are only on vehicle warfare gamemode.

Fortifications
Hopefully this map makes it more fun and interesting to build your own fortifications, each flag has already some fortifications but by building more yourself you can make flags be real fortresses which will require some teamwork and tactics to be destroyed.

Looking good, I love those middle of nowhere maps. My toughts goes to the Finnish continuation war and the book Tuntematon sotilas (The unknown soldier) with all those trenches in that landscape. The maps name suggests it is not based in Karelia, but maybe the inspiration comes from there.

nah, the Karelia is one bigass dense forest with lakes and bogs inside of them, this map looks closer to tundra-ish environment imo

the fortifications looks epic:D

Was thinking the same thing! Real Ostfront-nostalgia. Especially that pic with the burning tank in the distance.

Love the terrain. For me, it looks just like home :p Really believable and realistic.

Looks nice.

The tall grass is static, like the fields, so it renders all the way.

This is probably the coolest map I've seen in PR as of yet. It looks so authentic it's breathtaking.
The atmosphere is just perfect, I'm pretty sure this will be my favorite map in 0.9.
Really good job, Deer!

the map looks good, but im worried about draw distances. it seems like a large part of the cover on the map comes from high grass, but when people turn down there settings, the grass dosent draw at medium or long range, if there in an APC wont it be like running across a blank map to everyone else?

judging from the screenies the grass is

a) not that high
and
b) seems to be the new kind that draws all the way

Going to be an epic tanks/vehicles battle there! Beautiful map, I will not start again the whole idea of Canadian forces in Yamalia area, it's just hilarious, but the work done there is awesome. Can't wait to play it and v0.9. It looks so real and the defenses are well made, that's very cool.

ummm, the grass i saw was almost covering a tank wreck....
Swamp area is made of 2 types of grass, the classical grass that renders 100m away, takes color from ground color and looks more detailed.. and then there is those big overgrowth grass fields which will render as far as trees =)

Awesum! How long it took u 2 create this map?

Made most of it in 2 weeks during holiday year ago, but i finished it just last few weeks =)

It's to bad this isn't early morning with a low to the ground ambient fog in the trees. But hell it still looks amazing, great job.

I was thinking to make that kind of foggy swamp, but it could turn out to be too heavy for our current computers, could still try tho..
