Attu Islands in the Aleutians, Alaska

Attu Islands in the Aleutians, Alaska

Upon request by EST, site of the only Japanese invasion of the United States, the westernmost part of the country.
I have topographic maps from USGS that needs to be converted to Illustrator (Ai file) for me to model it in 3d.
Can someone please convert this to an Ai file format. This would start the island building process for new maps.

Re: Attu Islands in the Aleutians, Alaska

Wait, are you planning on making a new Island for an "Invasion of Aleutians" map?

If so, don't you remember that Beast already has a map idea like that out?

Re: Attu Islands in the Aleutians, Alaska

Its a proposal at this stage. But this is based on a actual topographic lines and elevations. I am learning how to model from GIS data. If Beast already has the island made my apologies. Then the project will be scrapped. To be honest I would rather abandon Attu Island as it would be very very time consuming. Much rather model ships and airplanes and such.

Sorry Beast, didnt mean any disrespect.

No, he didn't make the island; just a map idea

Re: Attu Islands in the Aleutians, Alaska

Ok so I probably will just still make the island, just modeling it. I also just recently found a quicker way to model it accurately without using GIS data.
GIS data has too many points i found out. Attu Island done with real GIS data would be an enourmous file size. Something in the range of 200 megs. My guess is thats too large for BSM, and thats still not including textures.

So scrapping GIS based islands and going with more traditional way of lofting curves based on elevations.
But my question is, how large can BSM maps be? Is there a limit because the island is 20 miles by 35 miles approximately. AND thats just Attu, theres still sorrounding smaller islands for the island chain.

Re: Attu Islands in the Aleutians, Alaska

Yea, I just drew a map around a satellite image of several Aleutian islands when I designed the map, shame it never took off though. Honestly, I'd be fine if you used the map idea and combined it with this image.

  • N_Trainz : No it was created by multiple authors from around the world. I just made it so its actually a mod instead of a complete game that's about 7GB in size. The readme file that is displayed can give you more info about the mod
  • Runsva : hey ntrainz did u make this mod all by yourself?
  • N_Trainz : If you need any other help, just shout out and I'll try to get back as soon as possible
  • N_Trainz : Its not a problem :D I do thank you for waiting for a long time to get the mod. Again hope you enjoy the mod and the other fun features it comes with
  • Legendary Da : I don't know how many times I said that, but thank you so much for your work. Considering how much time making an installer, making it work and uploading it to different servers, I thank you again for the effort you put in this. :D
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Here it is, installers works this time and Moddb won't accept it as they say its too large to upload, so its on my Google Drive and here is the link, hope you enjoy it «link»
  • Legendary Da : I had guessed it was about the wrong area, though I still wondered why it had been removed. Thanks for taking your time to make something better for the community. Take as much time as you require, though; life still comes first.
  • N_Trainz : Actually it was removed by me for 2 reasons; 1. was it was uploaded in the wrong area and 2. the installer didn't autp - detect the disk version, only the Steam version (since that is what I have). Going to remake it so if you won't mind a but longer wat that'll be appreciated
  • Legendary Da : Thanks soo much for the mod, I couldn't access to the Internet lately so I couldn't write a reply. Btw, the mod is removed from ModDB, is it taken down, or you removed it yourself? Either way, thanks for the awesome work (at least for providing it) :D
  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
