The six months of vacation has expired, for this reason this topic is now labeled as [Abandoned]. An action, as stated in our Abandoned map policy has been taken. If the original mapmaker wants to continue this map project it's fine but a real update must provided. From this moment anyone else is free to continue this project without the original mapmaker permission, but it has to be started from the scratch.
Thinking about maybe bringing this back. A quick note to self, would be to combine the 3 bonus areas in the South east into 2. Give Kent and Surrey to the bonus area associated with London (Essex), and all others to the Southern bonus area (Sussex/Kent). Also I would convert Dover into a town.
