Are we in the Aegean?

Asturias56 26th Apr 2021 12:47

I'd say yes

kenparry 26th Apr 2021 15:21

Santorini?

Asturias56 26th Apr 2021 15:24

No but it has been volcanic within the last few thousand years, tho not recently - but that covers a lot of places thereabouts..............

ea200 26th Apr 2021 15:56

I will try Milos then. Had discounted it, but it is volcanic.

Altis
What you have said, it seems still to be a place of continuous fighting.

Asturias56 26th Apr 2021 17:52

I don't think Milos is in the Aegean, sensuo stricto. And although there's been a lot of fighting there there's also several thousand years of history - you just had to choose the right time to live there......

I haven't got a clue where it is, but I'm very intrigued!
While I'm here I suppose I'll have a wild guess... Could it be the old Rhodes airport - Maritsa I think it was called?

Lemnos? OH if correct.

You can call it an alternate truth or a parallel universe but in the shooter game Arma 3
it is 2036 and there is an island state Altis almost completely modeled after Lemnos.

More customers at Lemnos but better gardeners at Altis

It is difficult to model scrub and weed and by leaving it out it saves on your digitized Garderner.
I do not how to shoot with a PlayStation pad or keyboard I just ran into it when searching for the geographical feature which is probably the salt lake?

Asturias56 28th Apr 2021 07:15

Ok Lemnos or Limnos it is - "Hephaestus International" (IATA: LXS, ICAO: LGLM) - he was the Greek God of Metallurgy who was thrown (physically by Zeus) out of Olympus and landed here - no information on type of approach

V good beaches and one of Europe's only two deserts.
