Epic view distance is epic

Since unfortunately the BF2 engine seems to be limited to ~3000m view distance, I had to stitch together multiple images to fit in all of Shijia Valley's amazing detail. Took a fair while to do, and cruising about at around 10 fps because of the huge view distance doesn't speed things up either, too many trees .

It looked something like this once stitched together, then I had to do some work in photoshop to fix up the edges. The above image is then used in the map overviews for displaying gameplay related information.

Congrats to [R-DEV]AFsoccer for this amazing looking map, and also on his recent promotion to Mapping Manager. Hopefully everyone will enjoy the map in v0.96 .
