Default Re: MAPs

and also
which didnt really pan out. I was hoping that creating pieces of maps would let you select, paste together, and edit. If you think its useful then lets chat. But they should be playable as they are.

The idea was that if I stacked a land, water, land then it would be a nice contest map. And a snow, temperate, snow might make a world view.

Stacking them would make it easier to renumber without losing the terrain and neighbor info. I think I kept them at an even number of provinces (100? 200?). But editing the image to smooth the transitions turned out to me more than I felt like doing. My next hope is a "seed" function where I can create the same map with different variables and cut-n-paste pieces of them into a whole.

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!)
