the islands are now connected, but the inter-island route still goes through purple.
to avoid this, why not make the arctic islands a white continent with a zero bonus, like world 2.1's antarctica? if this is done, then a zero bonus is appropriate because severnaya zemlya and novosibirskiye ostrova both have no permanent inhabitants and, during the soviet era, neither did novaya zemlya, which was a major nuclear test site.
I was thinking about adding that. The zero bonus is a nice twist, though. Thanks ian.
