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!
Elevations come from USGS Map Database.
Real elevation model & roads & structure implantation
Terrain is 100 km²
Island is 12.5 km²
1 large town
Small farms and structures dispatched around the island.
To install the Porquerolles Island you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
