Replacement Desert Island

================================================================

-DESCRIPTION-

Replacement island for OFP 1.96. Map title - intro.wrp 

================================================================

-STORY-

I got tired of the stock plain intro island so I used the BTgrass addon in an interesting way. Basically i took the map and smoothed it out (rounded off jagged edges or cliffs), retextured the whole thing in a single shade of light green, and covered it completely in BT's grass number 2.

It's actually quite a bit of fun when cover is everywhere, and nowhere.

================================================================

-INSTALLATION-

To install the map first backup your original intro.wrp located in the worlds folder of OFP, and then drop this one in there. If you ever want to revert back to the stock map, just overwrite this map with your backup.

Be careful to not lose your backup, to uninstall this map you will need the original intro.wrp file.

To add the grass effect, put the erba.pbo file into any one of your OFP addon folders.
(The btgrass addon is proved completely unaltered and in it's original form to save you time.)

================================================================

-PROBLEMS-

1. Collision Detection

There are some problems with weapons while crouched, or laying prone in some sections of the grass. Sometimes your bullets collides with the grass, which isn‘t too strange. It‘s cover for a reason. This is rare in most cases.

2. Lag

The ENTIRE Island is covered in grass. So beware of lag on lowgrade computers. You must have a decent machine to use this, it's very lag intensive once you add uinits to the map and battle on it.

If you encounter lag issues just lower your view distance till it goes away.

3. Not intended for air intensive missions, best used for foot/car missions.

================================================================

-CREDIT-

Credit for the map obviously goes to the OFP game (stock map and all), I just edited it a bit, and credit for the grass effects go entirely and completely to Sled88's and his BTgrass addon.
