    In the April Patch dev livestream someone asked what was this blob in the middle of the Atlantic and they totally denied it and joked it was a conspiracy. :lol:

    It's a bit more extreme than the reality, but central Greenland is actually under sea level because of the weight of the ice sheets above it. In an extreme melting scenario, Greenland would have a massive lake in the middle, until a few centuries of rebounding happen (as is happening, for instance, in the Gulf of Bothnia).

    Should have moved it to the Pacific to give Japan more room, or so I’ve heard.

    I'm thinking they were pushed by Vatican, just like Spain was pushed by Portugal.

    Hmm?

    Alphabetical order... or coincidence?

    Does anyone know where we can see a picture of the 100% revealed huge tsl earth map? I can't see to find one...

    Disappointing that europe and the middle east are still so small-even on huge. I've seen mods that expand those areas just a bit to make them 100% better-even on huge.

    It is geographically accurate, though. Europe is small. IRL, of course.

    Still think the Mediterranean should have been bigger than just 1 tile wide to cross etc. But I guess the Engine can't make any larger maps.

    Europe has been crowded in every iteration I've played, even for huge maps. It's a matter of temper if you like the Europe start or not.

    In 2016 and until summer 2017 it could handle that size for Mediterranean sea on a world map:

    Oh of course-the issue is that they're got so many european/ME civs in the game that it makes no sense to have these areas not blown up at all. Makes your options a lot smaller

    I like that kind of map to play, but it's not a geographically accurate one, so it's a different approach than the TSL.
    On the minimap, India looks not much bigger than Spain or metropolitan France, and it is about 6 times bigger IRL.

    What were the x and y lengths of that map that is no more handled by the game?

    230x116, and yes, even at that size, Europe would not be big enough to fit all Civilizations if the proportions were respected.

    Yeah. What's up with that?
    At least Sri Lanka is now a 3 tile island (Kandy) :)

    At the danger of spamming the forum with these issue - a word of warning and a small glimmer of consolation for the TSL map fans:

    The issue with unnamed rivers/absent floods/impossible dams still plagues most of the TSL maps, including the new huge Earth one...

    https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/1-0-12-9-tsl-huge-earth-map-river-label-and-dam.669574/

    ...but for some odd reason the new Mediterranean one works as intended as the only in this regard:
