Hello.

There is work underway exploring the possibility of a somekind of map editor for Armored Task Force. BCTC is the predecessor.

You can do alot of editing in BCTC, including minor editing of maps. You can add terrain like forrest, rivers, roads, buildings, etc. However, it's at a cost of CPU power. There is also a database editor (something the ATF community impatiently awaits) that allow you to add and modify vehicles and teams. Though the editors are still quite limited.

The maps in BCT are not extremely accurate to my understanding. They could be used to represent a number of locations. So it's very possible for you to take a map from NTC and make it Afghanistan. (Though there are several Afghanistan maps already included.)

If you have any questions, please fill free to ask, and welcome.
