Pomegrat Island
Old Bear

Some facts about the Pomegrat project.
It's my 1st map and my first run in the modding world. I spend 3 months on the project, sometimes working a full day on the job. I have redone it twice, learning the hard way. I was helped all along the road by Floosy, my game ADO team mate, himself known for his Tatawin and Isla del Jonas islands.

The map is built with PvP in mind, but AI are doing ok on it as far as I have tested ...
The main issue for AI is the long seawall between the two parts of this island.

Of course, this island does not exist in RL but it's shape is based along the "Pomegues et Ratonneau" islands near Marseilles. The map is larger than the model and less rocky.
As on the model you can find here and there remains of military equipments, some of them centuries old.

On this map, two islands linked by a long seawall are making a nice place for an harbour.

- On the northern part there are 3 "modern" barracks, one near the harbor and 2 ruins of barracks from an other era, the Pomegrat village and the harbour. The north part is having also a farm with olive trees groves and vineyards.
A large telecomunication mast is set on the highest point of the map.
A very special set of buildings is to be found at "La Quarantaine", these ruined buildings are what was left of a 18th century quarantine hospital when the plague was infesting this area.

- On the southern part there are an airstrip and a "modern" base near it, 2 "disused" ruined barracks and 3 places used since the 18th century for naval arty batteries.
In the middle of the southern part the village "Le Moulon", is only ruins around a ruined castle.
