    No, we can't edit the actual game we're playing. You could use the regular Civ3 editor to create that island in a map so you have a picture of it.

    With the plan to build new cities to fill cultural gaps, I would like to know how to make sure my city name proposal is registered. I posted it in the City Name Registrar's Office, but I do not know if it has been accepted.
    Also I have seen some threads by mayors of cities, how is this possition taken and what purpose does it serve.

    When there's a governor of that province, you can ask to be a mayor of that city. At the rate this game is going, the game might be finished before the red tape is.

    Oh God yes! Please do so.

    Chieftess has already come up with one proposal, but it has not yet been voted on. I imagine we'll be voting on these borders within the next week or so, so please submit any proposals you may have in mind.

    Keep in mind, that provincial borders must adhere to the underlying terrain whenever possible (ie. borders should follow rivers, mountains, hills, etc), and not necessarily a cities cultural borders. Other than that, though, have fun, and on behalf of the Cartographic Office, thanks for your contribution.

    Here is a suggestion for regions of the newly gained land.
    Remember that this is my first try on something like this, and the typing and borders must be changed anyway. The names of the regions are just some suggestions I think fit very well...

    :eek: Next time, just post a link. It tends to break my browser. :) (and is hard on my modem)

    In fact, it's not showing up now. If you post a link, modem users will be able to download it instead.

    Yes, there are STILL people with modems, like me.

    In fact, could you edit your post just to have a link.

    like: My suggested map.

    Not to mention, it's gonna use INCREDIBLE bandwidth whenever anyone comes to view a new post. It can cause the entire forum to slow and contribute to server busy errors (like one that just happened when typing this message).

    I think this server has a 5gig a month transfer capacity (166 megs per day). Posting a 1+ meg image really eats up on server time with every view.

    EDIT: Just noticed the image is 2 megs! That's kind of unnacceptable to post a huge image like that in a post. Such an image will really bog down server time. PLEASE change that image to a link.

    Some of the provinces are too long (strips of land), and only 4-6 cities. Most provinces have 9-12 cities.
