EUROPE TO FAR EAST - extra gigantic (240x150) and gigantic (200x120) Hi, Here is the new version of Europe to Far East map (Europe Far East XG). The older one (europe far east gigantic), still available, is of gigantic size: 200x120 tiles. The new one, enlarged a little bit, now contains South-East Asia, half of Scandinavia, a bit of Island (moved a bit closer to Europe) and almost whole Japan in its (almost) correct postion. The map needed to be adjusted to its size, though, it's 240x150 tiles now. Therefore, there is no vast terrain to conquer in Northern Asia (some of you were complaining on that vast Siberia and other parts of Russia, that they were too large and too boring - well... that's the conquest anyway), Central Asia is also is tightened as well and India has "slightly" different shape to what's we are used to. Europe is still larger than it really is in comparison with Asia, but it allows you to create some nice empires and expanding them anywhere you want in this part of the world. This map comes with fixed settlement positions, listed below. There are plenty of resources, most of them for 50 civilizations, only a few of them are in limited numbers. There is quite a lot of flood plains with wheat on it - mostly in valleys of Ganges and Indu rivers, in some other places around the Indian subcontinent, Chinese coast, Mesopotamia, Nil river, Tiber river... and maybe somewhere else too, but insignificantly. There are 22 civilizations - as I was making it in the World Builder, I had to choose some (in the version with no starting point, you will be free to choose whatever civilization you want and have whatever opponents you want): - Arabia - Assyria - Babylon - Carthagina - Celtia - Egypt - Ethiopia - Greek - Hitti - India - Japan - Khmer - Korea - Mali - Mongolia - Persia - Rome - Russia (an odd exception just to fill the north regions with something) - Siamese tribe - Sumeria - Vikings - Zulu The map is not designed for every computer, only those who can cope with this amount of... tiles. It's just that I always wanted to have a really large empire, and meet really large opponents. Below you can see pics of these two maps - the XG version picture taken from MapView - you can't see mountain ranges or forests, it just gives you a general idea of the land masses.

I know it is a bit annoying to me (especially with marathon speed). If you know any way how to fix it I'd be gratefull if you could share it, so I can make some changes to the maps. Have a good time anyway!
