    Default A few maps!

    1st Map is the fictional Atlantic island of Sahrani, a nation which is divided into a northern communist regime (called the Democratic Republic of Sahrani - DRS) and an oil rich southern democracy called the Kingdom of South Sahrani.

    2nd Map is a fictional post-Soviet country called Chernarus (Black Russia). The country is in a state of political unrest, with a western backed democratic government trying to hold onto power from pro-communist rebels, among the most powerful of the rebels, is the group calling themselves the Red Star Movement. Referred to by the locals as the "Chedakis".

    3rd Maps is a fictional island named Skira (Based on the real-world island Kiska, which is located on the western end of the Aleutian Islands, Alaska)
    The real-world island of Kiska (on which the in-game island of Skira is directly based) is located on the western end of the Aleutian Islands, Alaska and was involved in WWII. It was at one point liberated by US and Canadian forces after capture by Japanese forces. The developers have aimed to copy the 277.698 km2 (107.220 sq mi) accurately to give players a sandbox composed of natural terrain, instead of artificially designed or procedurally generated terrain.

    Skira is a volcanic island with a variety of terrain. At one end is a stratovolcano, 8.5 by 6.4 km (5.3 by 4.0 mi) in diameter at its base and 1,221 m (4,006 ft) high, and at the base of the volcano is a section of low lake lands. A ridge of 1,000+ foot mountains runs down one side of the western portion of the island while the other side is generally flatter with numerous lakes and small waterways.
    In real time, crossing the island would take 9 hours on foot, 4 hours in a jeep and 20 minutes in a helicopter.

    Armed Assault and Armed Assault 2 are indeed great games (and Operation Flashpoint before that), with great maps. Never played Operation Flashpoint 2, didn't like what Codemasters made it into.

    If I may ask, how does one create such fantastic contour maps? (What programs?)
