I have a raw drawing of an island to conquer. I have left open many opportunities to create a story around that. I

So here it is ...

One idea is:
All reinforcements come from the airport and spread out over the whole island. If you conquer it there will be no more enemy reinforcements. You can do that by striking through the military base in the middle (then going for the airport) or going around the airport, using the rebels boat in "the woods". but for this you have to do some quests. It will be very very hard to conquer the military base (from north) without expert knowledge and an expert team of mercs.

There are many more ideas, but first i

Interesting. Quite a lot of new maps to make, but I would definitely want this to develop into something substantial.

My first map mod will be a rework of San Hermanos. I find FC's sectors pretty good, but the size of the cities is quite small.

Nice concept and ideas.
The map looks like great britain with a banana haircut and smoke cloud out of the mouth (Rock'n'Roll!).
I like how certain areas are avoidable through different means. Freedom is a good thing, both for gameplay and replayability.
What are the Flaks for? There is no 'JA2-style' helicopter in JAF, so what's the point?
What's the idea of the enemy fortress so close to your start point? It looks like we could send boats on one another through H/2-4. By the way, this could be unlockable through a quest, like a commando strike driven by a stealthy NPC. A shortcut to victory if you have the guts and the Men to do it.

Destroying a Flak cannon should have drop-offs possible in surrounding sectors, no? I think JAF was supposed to have this mechanic, maybe it's half done or burried in the code. And should be finished.

Since it has programmable locations for drop-offs, it definitely has a toggle for them in the city code. In JA2 they put the SAM bases outside and that was a better choice, because A) you had a nice side mission B) you had a separate sector to defend C) they had much tougher AI there, which broke the routine of the yellow shirt fights and gave you a taste of what's to come.

Definitely something we need to get from the devs - information on how drop-off locations are activated then move that trigger to Flak cannon sites.

@ Grim
Thanks Smile

The Flaks have more of an immersion purpose for the time being. Maybe they shouldn
