Description:

Welcome to La Puerta Dorada,

La Puerta Dorada or The Golden Gate is a bay largely based on Subic Bay located on the west coast of the island of Luzon in the Philippines. Due to its deep and protected waters, this is a map ideal for making harbors perfect for your beautiful Naval bases and ports. This map features realistic mountains, white sandy beaches, dense forests, fertile lands, mineral rich rivers, swamps and mangroves, multiple highway connections with realistic interchanges, a small volcano at the center of the bay inspired by the world’s smallest volcano which is also located in the Philippines, and of course two well arched Golden Gate Bridge to connect the mouth of the bay.

Quick Historical Background:
An extension of the West Philippine Sea or the South China Sea, the shores of the bay were formerly the site of major ship-repair, supply, and rest and recreation facility for the Spanish Navy and subsequently the United States Navy. Under the Americans, the bay was the 2nd largest overseas military installation of the United States Armed Forces. Following the departure of the Americans, the bay was transformed into a Freeport Zone by the Government of the Philippines.

β€’ Please read the descriptions of the mods before subscribing.

β€’ 81 Tiles mod is highly recommended to get the most out of this map because the center of map is mostly made up of water, but that is entirely up to you.

β€’ Tree Anarchy 1.0.5 or any of the Unlimited Trees mod is a must because I used more than 300,000 trees for detailing. (Please read the description of Tree Anarchy mod before subscribing)

β€’ No Radioactive Dessert and More! Mod is needed for the tree assets along the river banks, mangroves, and swamps to not appear dead.
