Terrain - Porquerolles Island

Recommended Posts

Porquerolles Island



by


Team Les Vétérans : [V]Michel & [V]Xnam



 
Description:
(From [V]Michel)

This terrain tries to be as close to the real Porquerolles Island as we possibly could. The height map and vegetation is based on the real world island.
 
Being originary from the south of France and in the vicinity of Porquerolles, with the help of [V]Xnam who made Angel Island, I took over the modelling of the Porquerolles Island which is the biggest and most to the west in the Hyères islands. It's forming an arc oriented east-west with jagged coasts.
The highest point in the island is the Semaphore at 142m.
 
I hope you'll enjoy playing on the island as much as I enjoyed making it!

Features:

Elevations come from USGS Map Database.
Real elevation model & roads & structure implantation
Terrain is 100 km²
Island is 12.5 km²
1 large town
Several castles
Small farms and structures dispatched around the island.


Installation:

Porquerolles doesn't need any other mod to be used.

Download,
Extract @VTR_Porquerolles to your Arma 3 game root folder,
Enable the mod.


Included Files:

Change log:
 
Version 1.2
  • corrected the sat map colors to be less blue
  • added corals and underwater elements around the island
  • seabed's topography modified in the port
  • added some real life ship wrecks around the island, plus some surprises
  • Some adjustments of objects
Version 1.1
  • added clearings in the woods for mission makers
  • added small piers to the south coast of the islands
  • lowered the number of vines to increase FPS on lower configs (5 to 10 FPS gain)

  • corrected configuration files. ATTENTION: this introduces breaking changes, we renamed all configs from "vtr_porquerolles" to "porquerolles". If you have old missions (2D editor) you'll need to edit the mission.sqm.

Really nice island. The only one thing there is no airplane possible landing zone, but if it was it will be definitely a good training map !

Downloaded this and wanted to try it but Arma isn't seeing it in my game at all..very strange..anyone have this issue..haven't seen this before with any other Mod..i did as I always do and dropped it in my root folder along with my other 90+gb of Mods and it doesn't show up in the launcher. Anyone having this issue or is it just my side somehow.

Nice, mate. Very nice. I liked that Angel Island map since I used to work across from it every day, but this map is even better and I didn't used to work across from it every single day. Great work, chief.

Thanks a lot Foxhound!

Any chance of a Play with Six download as well? I only ask because of bigger Modpacks that use a lot of Mods and PW6 does make it easier..absolutely love the Map.perfect size for small special ops infantry missions..great work!
