Pretty nice set of maps, albeit I think they aren't suited for play with aquatic nations - way too much water compared to land. Still - very handsome, and if aquatic nations aren't allowed, there are lots of nice chokepoints until nations can get into the water.

Yep...
In my opinion, the "Small" version is the more playable with aquatics nations but they keep a great advantage.
Maybe the best solution in MP games is to give the two aquatics nations to AI. (That's what we do in a french MP game, but it's too soon to say if it's work well: turn 10 or so..)

It's quite difficult to decide the correct number of aquatic provinces:
To high and aquatics nations will have an easy-doing-high-number-of-provinces-empire.
To low and they have a great mobility advantage.

Thank you for the "chokepoints" point. It's one feature I really wanted to see in this map.

Now I finished the "Small" version, I don't use the "Big" anymore. I'll just have to finish the special scrip (as I said, one special province for each "colour" of magic, with special army and high level Sites in it) and the "neopangea" sheet of my life will be turned .

Even if there is a lot of water, it might be fun to play a no-aquatic nation game where people take water cult.

Recipe:

Put 6 or so no-aquatic nation (except Ermor and maybe Vanheim/CoS Marignon) on the big Eurasian land, played by human players.

Put 4 strong AI (with two starting provinces) on the American land (north and south).
Spinkle that land with a lot of magic sites.

You'll obtain some "conquest of the new world" game, in which each player should try to reach America (to have access to all those juicy-full-of-magic-sites-provinces.)

Could be fun!

Some DOM_3 ideas so map-editors can make more interesting SP games:
Any provinces on the map which are one-way only ??
or
Any provinces with restricted access where only specific nations can reach them??
