Wow... that is a huge map and it looks quite beautiful. I love the presentation.

I wonder if listing the impassables twice is necessary though. I mean, it fits with the two maps now equal one theme... so that excuses it in some respects.

i would leave it there twice because it is presented as 2 maps rather than 1 really big one

the small is a little larger than the limit, but In exceptionally-exceptional circumstances, there is the further potential for flexibility ;)

I wonder if Mar de Sur might be better connected to somewhere a little bit more south than Quito. Chimu or Inca maybe?

Also, I'd like to see the words Atlantic and Mar de Sur closer to their ships... at least inside the blue. They're kind of way out there away from things. And why not go for a similarity in naming convention. If one is in Spanish then put the other in spanish.

I'll move the names a little closer.. and try to figuer out what to call them

what about another boat where the Southern impassables are, one that connects to the Pacific boat, and to Tiwanaku?
I don't know how I feel about it yet, just an idea I'm throwing out there.

beautiful :)

agree with Helix, the Quito has connection with Guaymi, so the connection from Mar del Sur could go more to south.
the second ship is not needed, I think, just if ship in Atlantic has three connections, also Mar del Sur could has one more. maybe to Alaska...

That might work... possible connect it into the Southern Andes bonus rather than the Northern. Northern Andes is a good starting bonus to aim for and it would kind of ruin that to create another connection. Plus... some of these connections might be altering bonus values. I think putting the connection into North Andes might make it worth more than it currently is. And I figure you want very little bonus alterations on this map.

This is just an idea/opinion, but I think you could combine the 2 meso-americas into a single bonus... it would sort of bring the map together into a more coherent whole.
