I've done this before and yes..you can. Enterable buildings will be detected by ALiVE and populated. If it's an especially large town, etc. you may want to place small radius Custom Objectives on either end of it so that it's heavily populated as well.
FYI, some of the I44 maps do indeed work.
I have an Iron Front + Faces of War campaign running on my clan's dedi set on I44 Neaville as we speak and its working great.
Yes it affects their hostility towards you.
@Inspire1 Are you asking if the factions are fleshed out? Yes they are. If you want the best of both worlds, you can set IND to a coventional threat and OPFOR as an assymetric threat for example. I have a Steam Workshop campaign that does this called "The Deadly Shadows".
@Inspire1 Insurgency? Typically try to clear area around FOB...followed by patrols of nearby villages...followed by move towards establishing a secondary FOB in most active area (I typically have starting spawn point, then a secondary moveable spawn point that can be positioned where needed).
That's the typical strategy we use.
@Inspire1 Isla Duala is one of my all time favorite maps period. Specifically geared towards African campaigns.
N'Ziwasogo, despite using older jungle assets...still a great map and HUUUUUUGE (but pure jungle).
Kidal is another very big map that is an actual recreation of Western Africa in Mali.
There is also Mogadishu but that one appears to be bugged since the 64 bit update.
Isla Duala is great but not very "green hellish"...more of an African Savannah style.
N'Ziwasogo is great but older jungle assets.
Tanoa would fit very well IMO because all of the towns are French named...many parts of Africa are predominantly French. You could consider Tanoa as part of an African island chain.
Just my .02.
Song Bin Tanh and the Thai map (won't attempt to spell that name lol) have Asian names so it may feel a bit out of whack.
