Im not sure how irregular tile (province) geometry would apply then outside of the neighbor commands.
This game is NOT suitable for students, interns, apprentices, or anyone else who is expected to pass tests on a regular basis. Do not think about strategies while operating heavy machinery. Before beginning this game make arrangements for someone to check on you daily. If you find that your game has continued for more than 36 hours straight then you should consult a physician immediately (Do NOT show him the game!)

Thanks for the clarification, Max. This is definitely more what I had in mind and definitely not pixel distance. Also, I was hinting that radius was perhaps difficult to measure in certain regions of some maps, and so making something a function of it might be difficult by extension.
