Any idea’s for a map that resembles this terrain ?


Recommended Posts

Attached is a version of the map with a wadi terrain on the streambed, so it should be essentially impassable as the wadi terrain is set to be low traction/high drag making it a tank trap. If you want the wadi terrain to be a bit more forgiving unless vehicles actually fall into a deep part you can edit the Streambed drag and/or traction to make it less slippery.

Thank you, Rotareneg.

 

I found out now that the ground type "Streambed" has the effect to deepen the ground.

So I'll use this to further adapt the wadi.

 

Rediscovering  the art of map making: nice.

 

A detail pls: why are there under "Edit Theme" the 4 small boxes: "is water, is wadi, is snow, is dirt" ?

Like, why should I indicate that the ground type "Rock" is wadi or dirt ?

Because the terrain types in a theme aren't fixed, you can change them as you wish including changing names, colors, type and size of random objects (grass, rocks, etc.,) textures, and more.

"is water" has the special property of, well, receiving a water surface layer and showing up as blue in the map

"is wadi" creates an artificial depression in the terrain

"is dirt" is the texture we use for earthworks whenever you dig something

"is snow" creates an extra surface layer in winter themes, its depth depending on the theme settings.

That's magnificent !

 

Thank you very much, @Rotareneg

 

And now I have NO excuse anymore not to make this scenario 😄

It will be the first tactical excercise from John Antal's "Armor Attacks - The Tank Platoon"

Still pondering if I turn it into a mini-operation or not.

 


Status of the work on this scenario:

 

1. Currently re-reading the book & analysing how to turn it into a scenario. Will take some time

2. Next step: embellish the map

3. Then: create the scenario 

 

Just fyi, as you all helped me out.
