Re: ARAS 100km "Maps" (ie Islands)

There's plenty of debate whether they meant 10km * 10km, or 100km * 100km. Remember, the rest of the world thinks that 10km * 10km maps are monsterous, as even BF2 only goes up to 4km * 4km tops, and Joint Ops uses a stupid tiling method for artificially creating terrain expanses, and requires you t...

This wasn't mentioned in the readme, but these are also the same DLL's used in WRPtool. They are known to be unstable on 9x and ME and thus unsupported on that OS. The memory manager in NT systems including NT, 2K, and XP is totally different and much more robust.

The 'min dist' just needs to be clarified in the manual.

Region-based transition placement would be great.

The transition section of the manual needs to be clarified so users know exactly where the transitions will show up.

I'm guessing that you are not placing enough objects in the region for this to be a concern. My understanding is that the min dist. is just to limit the randomizer to make sure that by weird luck you don't get clumps. The min dist. option maxes out at 20m, and will cull any objects from the requeste...

Re: Blocky Texture help plz

By using large flat ares like in your screen shots, you increase the number of cells visible, and the likelyhood of your mind seeing texture repeating. If on the other hand you use rolling and hilly terrain like the BIS maps, there's less cells (and thus textures) to be seen.
