I. Map's description.

1. Geography.

Beketov district is a part of Uisk region. Beketov urban-type settlement is located 75km away from Uisk and 340 km to the East from the Moscow.

2. History.

Sobakino village of Uisk province is mentioned in documents since the second half of XVII century. It belonged to Dergunov-Sobakins landlords. In the middle of XIX century, the village became the state-owned property and acquired the status of a district center. In 1935 the village of Sobakino was renamed in Beketov urban-type settlement. It was named after one of the activists of Uisk Bolsheviks party. A few of collective farms (kolhozes) were formed right away in that new Beketov district.

3. Population.

Population — 10255 citizens (according to 2010 population census). Of these, the urban population - 5428 people, villagers — 4827 people. The ethnic composition of population — 95% Russians, 4% Tatars, 1% — else.

4. Economy.

The economy of the district is mostly formed of agriculture, forestry and service sectors. The largest enterprise — Beketov "chapelnik" factory which is on the brink of bankruptcy since 1993. There are also operating a few open joint stock companies (OJSC) «Krasnoselskiy elevator», «Studenetsky distillery» and private enterprise of Kevorkyan S. G.

Culture, education and health service.

The cultural objects are represented by «Vperyod!» ("Forward!") cinema theater (Beketov urban-type settlement), the house of culture of Krasnye seltsy village and lots of churches. There are Cathedral In the Name of Entry into Jerusalem (Beketov urban-type settlement), Church of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God (Krasnye Seltsy village), Church of All Saints (Karavayky village) among them. Also, there is a ruined Armanihinsk church there (Armaniha village) and Dergunov-Sobakins farmstead which is preserved to our days.

Educational institutions are represented by 11 schools and 1 professional lyceum. There are 5 libraries, 11 smaller health centers, and Beketov Central Hospital.

III. Known bugs and shortcomings

- Geometry problems with road police post building (vtn_bdg_post_md), postal office building (vtn_bdg_postoffice).
- No moon at night.
- River fords are marked as roads on the map (left as is for the testing purpose).


- The necessity to change the color of river water to green-brown.
- The sound of the rain does not work.
- AI units still have some problems with crossing of some bridges.
- The necessity of cemeteries.

Additional 3D-objects needed.

- Standart building of a common village house of culture.
- Standart school building of bricks or concrete panels.
- New administration building with an interior.
