custom islands

Can anyone point me in the right direction for learning how to create my own islands to insert into my dayz server map?

I love building an adding additions, but I have just created cities or added onto cities onto land that is currently in the game. The next logical step is creating my own islands.

Any info, tips, tutorials, or if someone would be willing to jump on teamspeak, or Skype with me would be AWESOME!

I did not find any other posts like this when I searched, but I searched with my phone, so if there is already a post I apologize.

Thanks in advance!

So, terrain making is insanely in depth. You need to be good at every aspect of modding short of creating animations, or heavy scripting, although you need to write endless numbers of configs, model.cfg's and work with a crazy amount of tools from BI and 3rd parties.

There is an emerging tutorial for A3 -

That's the most up to date one.

It on some level requires a lot of background knowledge that you can only get by reading this:

That is THE guide for terrain makers in A2. Read that, and create a VERY SMALL test terrain according to the steps, and you'll learn a shit ton.

I will eventually do a written/video tutorial on terrain work in A2 and A3, but not for at least 6 months.
