But I do agree that bonuses need to be adjusted:

N. America worth more
Antartica worth more

Also, I see there is one name to 2 countries in N. America

This map looks messy and confusing, and not different enough from the classic map to have any appeal whatsoever.

i really don't understand why most of europe is under water (including some mountains) but some small islands are still there :shock:

at the moment i don't like this map because it is highly innacurate. some high areas are underwater and other low ones still exist.

and second, i don't like the map because it has the same playability as classic map or world 2.1


PS: i really hate the red band across the map.

ok, i based this map on an elevation map and put all the green (lowest elevation) under water. and antarctica is a land mass, not like the polar ice caps of the north. the ice would melt off it, but the land would still be there

Maybe take some advice from that. Maybe it can help. Otherwise i love the map. great idea was thinking about it myself.

and to respond to DiM's comment, it has to deal with areas closet to the ice caps as well.

Great idea. Looks like you did some research. I came across this site. http://merkel.zoneo.net/Topo/Applet Anyone who's interested in what the world's land masses will look like at different sea levels should check it out. You can type in any rise (or drop) in sea level. Try around 300 m and pepperonibread's map is dead on.

Africa is going to be quite difficult to hold I imagine since it's split in two by the red zone. And the southern half of Africa is too isolated imo.

Love it Keep going.... But I think That red band needs to be worked a little ... Maybe smaller or transparent, something it takes away a little from the whole...

I don't know. that map doesn't make that much sense either. why is Florida still above water? why is there that new continent in the pacific. what is this based on?

sounds like a great map wade but the uninhabbitable zone should be less of a pop out thing. and bonouses need to be adjusted but looks really great. and in response to the comments about global warming, its just for the fun of it were not sayingf its true it is just a general idea
