Default Alexander ---> Updated Map - Ver 1.5 July 2008

Hello:

I have finished a new map inspired by the empire of Alexander the Great, but with some fantasy geography. It is a wrap-around map containing 290 provinces (246 land; 44 sea). Rivers are not impassible. All provinces along rivers have potential fresh water sites, except provinces that contain waste.

Babylon and Athens contain libraries.

There are some provinces with both border mountains and plains. Some are officially "border mountain" provinces, and others are not (e.g., 174, 194 and 200).

There are a few provinces that barely touch a river. They are not fresh water provinces (e.g., 175 and 194).

Thanks.

Pasha

Note: (July 2008) Attached is an updated version of the map that adds some optional preset starting positions (16 land; 3 water). I think they make it easier for balanced starting positions.

Very nice!

A touch large for me perhaps, but then small wraparounds are far too confusing.

Attached is a Late Era Scenario for this map. It includes all nations except for R'lyeh and Ermor. I have also attached a little map showing the capital placement.

Good looking map, like wraparounds and a nice size too.

Great job on the map!

I'll suggest having nostart for the following sea provinces.

171
183
227
266

Also, it might be good to have connections for the following sea provinces.

7 to 265
227 to 192 (maybe)
227 to 266 (maybe)
171 to 176 (maybe)

This allows the sea nations to have a bit more expansion room.

Not a very important bug, but on the initial description, it says, 'Some are officially'...then breaks off in mid sentance.
