I'm playing a game with it right now, and I have to say it's incredibly fun. The mountain ranges are placed perfectly, and the seas really do add a nice element of strategy to the game.

Well done mate. I love it. :)

I've completed 4 realtime games on it and no complaints (I won 3). Very nice addition to the map arsenal. =D>

I wouldnt mention it, I thought someone would do it, but...

Well, Bizantium is written Byzanitium in the map, both small and large.

Where does everyone get this BIZANTIUM word spelt with an I from.
Are we too lazy to move our fingers to the Y on the keyboard? :wink:

And of course darkmagus is correct according to Wikipedia.

Byzantium is the latinization of Byzantion - the original Greek word.

Well researched!

Is anyone else confused as to why Lydia doesn't connect with Thrace?
Byzanitium is connect to Thrace, even though there is a little bit of water in between the country, so what isn't Lydia connected, seeing as there is a little but of yellow land connected to Thrace?
lol, i'm always trying to attack from one to the other, gaah!

So I would assume not?

Wrong forum, you want bug reports.

Hi guys,

I'm reviving this old thread for a small nitpick I just noticed... Maybe I'll only get 'nevermind'-s but I thought I could at least report it ;)

Byzantium, in the North of this map, is spelled as Byzanitium! The XML is fine though.
I think this is a really tiny change. Still, maybe not worth the effort.

He's probably using color codes, therefore he can only see r1.
