Now you can colonize the whole Mediterranean and Black Seas - the Roman Lake, you might say. I tried to get the mountains, rivers, etc in pretty much the right places. And the Suez Canal and Bosphorus Strait both work - you can take a ship diagonally through one way, and still walk your units across diagonally the other way. I cut waaay back on the size of the Sahara though - it's uninhabitable and it's only good for generating hordes of barbarians, LOL. Whatever else didn't fit in the grid just got lopped off and turned into ocean. Enjoy!
