Any news?

It's been quite some time since I've heard any updates on this map. And since this is the map I'm looking forward to most, I'd like to know if there are any new updates. Especially in terms of release date. The last I news I heard anout it were 2020 with a release in early access aimed for very late 2021, and I'm wondering if this is still the plan today.

Im a mission builder and Im constantly getting request for the Falkland Islands Conflict... Since the release of the as we call it "The Marry Me Islands" I have started to develop this area into the Falklands as a stop gap... Would really like to know if this South Atlantic Map will be going ahead...

what do you mean by "if this South Atlantic Map will be going ahead"?

Building terrain is not a spectator sport or one that you get weekly updates on, its simply arduos, time consuming, very boring and extremely slow. They take years. Updates are not interesting. But you will know when its done because they'll sell it. Not very much before. Plus the terrain isnt the only thing being made for that DLC so there are interconnecting tasks.

Oh, I don’t know…

 

the Tactical Pascale video was pretty interesting - spectacular I’d say! 

 

If a dev is going to whet the appetite in that way it’s only natural that folks will be keyed up for more info / product release

I suspect this is the difficult bit ☹️
 

The naval assets (that we’ve seen) look a long way behind. The visual models look good, but the AI behaviour and weapons / damage modelling must be something else…

Just on weapons they will need Sea Dart, Sea Cat, Sea Wolf, 4.5”, 6” and smaller calibre guns… Rapier???

I can't see this map as much more than the Marianas, without the nice coral reefs and golf course!  

Just lots and lots of deep, blue ocean and some rocks to land on.

No, that makes it much better. Thanks for the tip!

I had little interest in the map until I heard it was extending a chunk into South America. Then I became very interested. I'm really looking forward to how well the mountain textures are done. Will they be that god awful generic stretched textures you see in some sims or will they be well crafted and delicious? Hopefully the latter.

 

As to the point made before about the "coherent theater" of the map, for my part I couldn't care less. As long as the map is good, I'll figure out what to do with it.

Some of the planes, but all of the maps!

work is progress nicely on the terrain, but as you can imagine the project has grown exponentially over the period due to community feedback.  The map upon release will cover 1.5 million square km. so that will be good enough IMPO.  Ill try and put something together this week, no promises

 

thanks Specter

With reference to the weapons, the Sea Cat, Sea Dart Missiles have already been submitted to ED for them to do their magic, I still have the SeaWolf to complete.  The rapier is already in the sim.

I recommend joining the Razbam Discord 'south-atlantic' channel - I've noticed photos and snippets of information being posted by the developers 🙂

Looks really great!

One thing that is really noticeable and hopefully easy to change is what looks like a kids drawing of grass. That's not how grass looks like irl - if you can replace that with something more realistic (and also that looks decent as a LOD it could go a long way).

This is the MSFS grass. Just one alpha map that needs to be replaced and everything would look so much better.
Thanks.

Hmm, textures look poor and the opening shot looked bad. And sprawling towns just don't exist in the Falklands?! Small settlements maybe, but some of those pan shots looked like Glasgow council estates. Plus all the US stuff...should be RAF etc.

 

Just sayin'...it WAS a teaser video.

You are aware that mainland Argentina is also included in this map (part of it at least)?
