Welcome to the project/planning stage for planning and coordinating work of [https://opengeofiction.net/relation/24978 AR335]. AR335, officially known as [[Arecales]], is a [[Federal States]] overseas territory and is located in the [[Ardentic Ocean]], east of Commonia and the Archantan continent and west of Pelanesia. AR335 is a volcanic island chain, for which human settlement and activity is centered around F.S. military presence in various installations.

Welcome to the overview page for [https://opengeofiction.net/relation/24978 Arecales].[[Arecales]] (AR335) is a [[Federal States]] overseas territory and is located in the [[Ardentic Ocean]], east of North Archanta. Arecales is a chain of several large mountainous/volcanic islands, smaller volcanic islands and many small sandy cays and other islets. There are three major islands, fifteen smaller islands and over 150 small cays of different sizes. Arecales draws most of its inspiration for mapping, culture, history from the Caribbean and island countries and territories there, but other mapping elements especially related to geopolitics take inspiration from places in the Pacific Ocean.

The developed history of Arecales involves historic settlement by the Bai and Castellanese, but on the map most of the influence seen is on the colonial history of the Franquese and Ingerish. Because of this, mappers in the project use and are welcomed to look at Caribbean islands with similar colonial histories for human/urban mapping. The population of the islands will number around 100000 people, therefore human development will not be very dense.

Those similar Caribbean islands are also useful for getting geographic inspiration (flat, sandy cays, mountainous volcanic islands, low-lying reefs and banks), but can also find inspiration from similar tropical islands in other parts of the real world for your mapping.
AR335 is a group of five small islands, with the main island being the center of population, economic activity. Other islands include two flat sandy cays, and two higher volcanic islands. Below is a more detailed description.
 
  
The big one is actually about 60km long, so there will be a larger town and a couple of villages. Geography wise, the two round islands will be volcanoes, for which the westernmost exhibits activity and recurring minor, not veryexplosive eruptions, and the southern one is extinct. The northern islet will be largely flat, with lots of sand and some low-lying vegetation. All these islands will be protected areas. A fairly biodiverse area, with many birds, some lizards, lots of insects and fish, being well in the tropics. Climate wise, probably hot and humid, with a drier winter and wet rainy season. A lot of the local economy will be centered around the military, with secondary economic activity likely touristic, ie. nature excursions to see wildlife, volcanoes, and people coming for beaches as the only tropical part of the FSA and primary, such as growing fruit, fishing. Military-wise, I planned two facilities on the island. The western one is a radar and tracking station, for monitoring/detecting vessels and aircraft, and can be used for satellite tracking, rocket (manned and weapon) observation and tracking if we ever have a space agency. The bigger eastern one should have lots of naval facilities for refueling on longer ship deployments, will host vessels for regional patrolling of the waters for national security/force projection, anti-piracy/smuggling activities etc. The same will also have a large airstrip and air force facilities, can be used by long-range bombers and transport aircraft for refueling/forward staging (some bombers can be stationed there on a permanent basis too)

Welcome to the overview page for Arecales.Arecales (AR335) is a Federal States overseas territory and is located in the Ardentic Ocean, east of North Archanta. Arecales is a chain of several large mountainous/volcanic islands, smaller volcanic islands and many small sandy cays and other islets. There are three major islands, fifteen smaller islands and over 150 small cays of different sizes. Arecales draws most of its inspiration for mapping, culture, history from the Caribbean and island countries and territories there, but other mapping elements especially related to geopolitics take inspiration from places in the Pacific Ocean.

User Brunanter is the coordinator. If someone is interested in participating in the project, feel free to reach out!

Overview

The developed history of Arecales involves historic settlement by the Bai and Castellanese, but on the map most of the influence seen is on the colonial history of the Franquese and Ingerish. Because of this, mappers in the project use and are welcomed to look at Caribbean islands with similar colonial histories for human/urban mapping. The population of the islands will number around 100000 people, therefore human development will not be very dense.

Those similar Caribbean islands are also useful for getting geographic inspiration (flat, sandy cays, mountainous volcanic islands, low-lying reefs and banks), but can also find inspiration from similar tropical islands in other parts of the real world for your mapping.

As this is a collaborative territory and not owned by any one mapper, here are a few points:

  • follow the OGF rules and be realistic
  • try to not alter the geography significantly, but feel free to add more detail and quality mapping
  • reach out to fellow mappers and coordinator to discuss inter-island and major projects
  • have fun! Arecales is a chance to do colorful, tropical, island vibe mapping
