Panjshir, Afghanistan

Description
This is my first contribution to the Squad mapping community. Player feedback is highly appreciated, post in discussions.

Map description:
It takes place in the mountainous and surprisingly lush province of Panjshir, in north-eastern Afghanistan. The home of the legendary five lions, and birthplace of the well-known political and military leader Ahmad Shah Massoud.

The landscape feature a large river carving through the region, sustaining the communities with food and electricity. Fields of poppies, wheat and corn are plentiful and orchards dot the land.
Although the valley look calm and peaceful you can see the remnants of the Soviet-Afghan war, with Soviet tank and truck wrecks scattered throughout the ancient terrain.

Because of the lush environment vehicle crews has to be careful of ambushes. Use your team to secure the surroundings, play to your strengths and mind your weaknesses to gain the advantage. The US team boast more firepower, but move slower through the rough terrain and has longer respawns. The RU team move faster around the battlefield and feature shorter respawns but provide less firepower.

To open the map locally use the command;

NOTE: If you experience low framerates at times, try turning off Ambient Occlusion and/or lower Effects to Low or Medium. This affect the ground and water texture qualities.

In progress:
-Further optimization (LOD, culling, mesh merging, materials, effects).

To-Do:
-Detailed building interiors.
-More game modes (RAAS, Skirmish).
-More fleshed out sound profile.

Is the map at a playable level for current Squad version? or does it require a few updates to it prior to being played? Thanks!

I'm finally working on the map again. Currently in the process of updating to the new game/SDK versions and some overhauls of dated looking areas to bring the visuals a bit closer to the actual place.

I'll definitively include a Linux version!

It's not abandoned, but I have much less time to work on it nowadays. I've made a ton of changes locally, so hopefully in the not too distant future I'll get an update pushed.
