Something you have probably noticed is that, with Bf2 mod, there is very few maps, especially focused on aerial combat, so I thought it would be useful to create an extra, very wide, but, this time, with a huge mountainous landscape:
in fact, the presence of a strongly accentuated relief greatly improves the quality of the piloting by the fact that it's much easier to orient itself spatially during the intense phases of Fight ! For this, I used a set of Dem Data as well as a large aerial photo of the concerned region : finally, the map is 4 km by side and is surrounded by secondary terrains of the same origin and size: The whole is therefore 12 x 12 km; The whole textured in the same way, in maximum quality: which explains the weight of the final zip file........:
the view is increased to 3 km and the summits of the mountains rise to more than 2145 meters: under these conditions, the dogfight experience become Fairly impressive:
And, for an even closer experience of reality, I strongly advise you to use the Kestrel app of FreeTrack Project: BF2FreeLook v1.1
Thus, the cockpit view becomes panoramic and makes it easier to follow the positions of the opponents: immersion in the game is then greatly improved.
For better visibility, the video below was realized without HUD, which is not advisable in game: see rather ....
Note that for players interested in multiplayer, the map is now playable, online, on the Lost-soldiers server: BF2.LOST-SOLDIERS.ORG:17002
If you have any questions do not hesitate !
