Welcome to the Caribbean, mon! **Preview Added!**

I heard someone mention they wanted a Caribbean map for Pirate scenarios. I have one converted, but it's all grassland, and I need terrain data on the area. I found this, but I'm somewhat skeptical to believe this provides full cartographical data:

I completely trust Encarta (if you got this offline, that's where it came from). I would trust it. It's just not that detailed.

Same goes with hill/mountain distribution...Knowing where resources are would be nice, too.

It looks exactly like Encarty. I'm pretty sure it is.

I have no clue about jungle though, sorry .

a carribean map for pirates should include all bahamas, southern part of florida, and a small part of mexican gulf too. something like this (this map has no useful info, but I just show how much area should be included)

Hmm...Well, this would be wonderful for scenarios, too! ...Xen: I could put the secret island of the Pirates, but then it wouldn't be secret anymore, would it?

Can nobody ofer anything on the specific terrain? I can flesh out mountains easy. All I need to know is what is and isn't jungle.

Woohoo? Anybody?
Bad news: I accidentally deleted the map...I'll have a new one back up real soon, but It'll take a bit.
