Now that the ARMA maps are getting MUCH BIGGER, It's a shame that they are still built on a FLAT plane creating an infinite horizon with unnatural view distances...
Instead they should be built onto a massive (earth size) sphere to simulate the curvature of Earth with a central point of gravity like 'Microsoft Flight Sim' or 'google earth'
This will create realistic situations like For example:-
Ships coming towards you will emerge up and over the horizon from about 3 miles away, instead of fading in from 20km.
Bearing in mind that a six foot person at sea level can only see about 3 miles before the earth curves out of view.
This could also possibly (please correct me if I'm wrong) preserve processing power, because if it isn't in view it doesn't need processing :-)
Here's the 'Outerra engine' doing exactly what I'm requesting, and it runs extremely smoothly too with unlimited view distance only limited by the Earths curvature :-)...
