Hey, very nice map, the city center is fenomenal but i think that you put so many trees that its prety hard to do a scenario in it, its prety frustrating that every time that i look to any direction the game goes from 60 to 20, it would have been the perfect terrain for a Grenade inspired mission.

@Doc. Caliban. Thank you for your lengthy and nicely written comment. I have had one other comment from someone that was actually born on Saba and later moved to the UK. It is really satisfying to get praise from people that have actually experienced Saba ( I am unfortunatley not of of those people ( as of yet ) ) . I sadly didnt make any of the sea floor match the real place and am not currently thinking of altering Saba as I am in the middle of a big project, but I may in the future and then I will add Diamond rock and some other features too. I hope you are well in this stange time and look forward to any other feedback that you might give. If you ever make any videos of your roaming around or any missions then please upload them to youtube and send me the link. Thankyou once again for your kind words. I have sent you a friends request if you would like to accept to make communication easier. Cheers.

I cannot thank you enough for this map! I lived and worked on Saba as an expat for 6 years and often miss it terribly. Simply loading it into Eden and "flying" around to all the places I lived and worked, etc is amazing. I worked as a dive instructor full time at first and then part time after that, so I dropped a boat in at the harbor and drove around to all the dive sites. I added Diamond Rock, moored, and just sat and listened to the water lapping against the hull for a while, pretending that the seagulls were red-billed tropicbirds and enjoying the view of the island. Then I gave myself a rebreather and dive kit, did a circle around Diamond Rock along the bottom like I'd done so many times while leading dives. (Never with a fancy rebreather though!) If you have any interest in doing any tweaks of key areas, I'd be happy to help! ( A few pics of the real Diamond Rock... [imgur.com]) BTW, the white color of it is untold years of bird crap.

i might make a sandbox mission on the island later on, but other than that, no

@ JoMiMi you going to make a mission on Saba where you have to land that plane then?
JoMiMi Feb 7 @ 3:41pm 
no, just know a lot about aviation.
SPARKLEKITTEN  [author] Feb 6 @ 11:24pm 
@Jomimi Good info mate. There is a plane in arma mods that can make that landing etc properly. I cant think of what it is but its stall speed is super low. Also are you from saba?
JoMiMi Feb 6 @ 8:56pm 
mentioned the Do-228 (from Sab's Civil Aviation Pack) because it's the closest thing you can get to a STOL passenger airliner in A3. IRL though the only passenger airliner that operates there is the de Havilland Canada DHC-6.

@JoMiMi Too right brother. If its the only aeroplane that can land then yes all the way.
