I currently use ROM_Perfect_World from 2.8. I used to do the Terra map as I liked having a new continent or two open mid game. I like the terrain in Perfect World better, however. I seem to recall an option for changing civ distance somewhere. Perhaps in an ini file? It seems that the civ starting cities cluster somewhat closely, and there's a lot of open space that's not being used until someone stumbles upon it. I'd like to have a greater distance between civs at start. Also, I'm curious about what maps other people like and why.
