Hazar-Kot Valley

MCN Hazar-Kot Valley

The map is centered around an inner and an out valley, the outer one is desert, with a small village and a few compounds, as well as an abandoned mine. These settlements are meant to be run-down and rather abandoned due to the remote location of the area and the fact that the mining operation failed.

The inner valley however is very rocky and has dense vegetation, mostly in the form of bushes, but also a few scattered trees. Within the valley there are a few settlements, mostly living off goat-herding etc. I'd imagine.

There is also snow. Since the entire area is over 2000 metres above sea-level, it gets rather cold, especially during the nights. Therefore there's patches of snow here and there in the inner valley, some areas are snowier than others. No snow in the outer valley and it's deserts though.

The easternmost valley (Bakshari Valley) is just meant as a backdrop when fighting on the high ridges, and is therefore a lot less detailed than the rest of the map.

Please note that most names of mountains, villages etc. are fictional or real-world names in other regions, this addon isn't meant to recreate a specific area accurately, but takes inspiration from many places.

@Santa Fe @Santa Fe Dude, you made a map, well, can't you describe it normal? What is the map size, what is the cell size? Show a screenshot of whole map! The user has no idea what kind of map it is, your foggy and nighttime screenshots do not carry any information.

Nice map, congratulations for your work!! Will you be able to mix several maps to make another bigger or make a new one bigger. Your maps are the most realistic and accuraterd in the workshop.

@Predator14 Never made a full winter version but there is snow on the map up in the mountains here and there. :) With some colour-filters to make things look colder and some snow scripts it looks pretty nice.

i wish talented people like yourself continued to produce these lovely arma terrains...

So I have all the required mods loaded but when I load up the map, it's missing all the buildings. Not compound walls or rock walls, but the actual buildings that make up the complexes themselves.

@Trees are fun It is indeed based on Shahi-Kot. Not to scale though, it's smaller than the real place, otherwise the ground would have been too blurry. :) Enjoy!

I just noticed that this map is the Shahi-Khot valley in Afghanistan (where Operation Anaconda took place). Did you download the terrain off of Google Earth or something? It's almost identical to the real thing (other than scale and elevation).

Awesome map by the way. I wanted an Afghanistan map so that I could recreate the Battle of Takur Ghar. After setting up my own Takur Ghar, I finally saw that it was already a place on the map and that I wasted my time lol. I had this map installed for a year before I realized it was based off the real place.

@Delta-9-Kilo Honestly I sometimes dream about making a remake in a larger scale with snowy mountains etc. but the honest and sad truth is that it is simply too time and energy consuming that it's just not possible. If I had some way to pause time while I worked or had infinite money and didn't have to work etc. it would have been something I'd love to have done. I can only hope someone else makes a similar map, ArmA needs more mountain ranges. :)

@Ftmch any chance for a complete remake if A4 ever happens? The new engine can allow for larger terrain sizes. And a properly modeled “Arma mountain range” with accurate elevations would be great in Arma (pun intended).
Plus the region in eastern Afghanistan that you choose for this terrain, ironically called the Arma Mountains in real life near the town of Zurmat has a long bloody history of conflict dating back before the Soviet-Afghan war with conflict still ongoing to this day with clashes between ISAF/Pro-Afghan government forces and the remnants of both the Taliban and Al-Qeada groups, as well as local ISIS affiliated groups. Hell even the Taliban and ISIS fight one another in this region (yeah I know...go figure that one out).
Also the inner valley in your terrain is the real life AO of Operation Anaconda, including Takur Ghar. So while this area is personal for me for many real life reasons, it is very much a relevant region in today’s times making it suitable for Arma!
