    Have been making these and playing with them for a while but I realised people on here might not know about them and there is nowhere for people to give feedback. Currently I have two separate scripts, both are modifications from the communitas which comes with VP. Most of the changes are just value changes but the rainfall system is very different and so is the feature system. Also there is generally more randomness than most mapscripts.

    Milae's Map:
    This is an earth-like map which I hope makes all the various terrain-based pantheons situationally pickable. Default is 0 artificial oceans though there will often still be differently landmasses. Add Oceans in if you want continents style map.

    Milae Pangea Map:
    This is a smaller map with some ocean at the bottom and (usually) at both sides. This one is supposed to somewhat be like the Great Plains maps but with loads more randomness and Tundra along the north. Probably less balanced but should make for some fun games.

    Have fun!

    Thank you, very good map scripts.

    I got them before and using since. They are a bit heavy on luxury resources but balanced around strategic ones.

    One of the funniest activity in VP is planning the cities positioning and with more resources there are more possibilities.

    Compared with Communitu for VP these are better regarding coal and oil. More than once I had a vast territory under my dominion just to discover that there were only 3 coal of 7 units each on the other side of the world nested in enemy territory. I cannot wait refineries to keep my war economy going.

    Just because of the name confusion, are you referring to the Communitas map or the Communitas_79 one? They are actually a good bit different which is why I ask.

    Yea technically that one is called Communitu_79 so just to clarify I started changing it from the original Communitas one.

    Though I did use their method to add in the OverrideAssignStartingPlots option, since it helps with mapscript compatibility, so thanks @azum4roll or @tu_79 for that.

    I love your “Milae’s Map” script, I’ve been using it ever since you offered it on your Youtube. I set the seas to low, ocean rifts to narrow/none, add 2-3 extra civs and 2-4 extra city states and it makes a neat pseudo-pangaea. Definitely fixes the resource issues of Communitas.

    (mapscript v10) I seem to recall something about you mentioning that you had blocked culture growth into the arctic so that one could always circumnavigate the earth. I'm not sure if it, the culture border growth, will ever grow in there or not. But I can not buy the tiles. Which as noted in the image is somewhat annoying since there is a luxury there, I guess I could live with it if it was just a normal fish but a luxury might be a tad much to miss out on.

    So if you block it could one at least make sure that luxuries are not placed into those water tiles.

    Hmm, i've never seen a lux spawn on ocean before. Is it something from the Civ? I believe you can't buy ocean tiles but your border can grow there naturally. That's just VP mechanics though, not to do with the mapscript.

    I thought it was a bit weird to. But there they are in all their crabby deliciousness. Normally I don't think they can or are supposed to, think it's all coast/sea and not ocean.
    I don't think it's a civ specific thing, it's he inuit civ -- they turn fish into seals but nothing about ocean crabs as far as I can tell. I did a few restarts and didn't get any arctic ocean crabs in any of those restarts.

    (edit). Happened again. Ocean corals. It's either the map or it's the civ, but it doesn't mention anything about spawning sea resources in the ocean. Pineapple doesn't appear to believe that it's the civ, I asked in the inuit civ thread.

    Does the mapscript modify ocean tiles after placing luxuries?
