    It's an awesome map! It's size makes it good for details, such as how you made England! I love it! However, it still lags for me.

    Well it cant be smaller - i already had some problems to place starting locations and citystates with the 3-tile rule and made some changes. The map is already at minimum size I think for a europe map with a heavy cut at the north, the russian side and on the south and provides 3-6 good city locations for every civ before u need to go to war.

    It really should be a real fluid gameplay, i never had more then 3-6 seconds of turn changes in lategame. Even epic games run on a single evening.

    I aktually update the same map in the first version of 51x51. I made the larger one before this one and before the 3-tile rule and was not happy with the outcome and only posted on german forums. So i actually dont have the time for a new map.

    Thanks for your comments, if u find any bugs or have any ideas for improvements let me know.

    Oh, it's just my computer, it will play all other games like magic lol. This is an amazing map! I love playing as the English or Ottomans on this and be isolated, keeping to my own piece of land :)

    Thanks, cool little map which I can even play on my slow 2 year old laptop (which fits the bare minimum specs to play Civ 5). :D

    Well the map is small, Ottomans are fine there with Istanbul as capital.
    There are two heavy cuts on the north and east of Europe - Moscow would not even be on the map if placed correctly. Mongols are placed near Krim just to bring some balance to the east. ;)

    Other maps i played til now end up in a giant Russia killing the other players around.
    The map is topologic (mountains, rivers, coastlines) fine but historic for sure not correct.
    Civs and city states are not exactly placed to bring some balance and to fit to the 3 tile rule. All city states in the center east (vienna, warsaw ...) are moved a little from their real position.

    Game options can only be changed in the World builder - but thats not a big deal just open the map - click scenario editor - change options and save it.

    Really enjoyed the map and it's good use of limited space, although Turkey/Greece are a little too close (fight for the fountain of Youth!). I also like the natural wonders (though its a little easy as Spain to grab both Gibraltar and Mt. Fuji in the French Alps).

    My suggestions:
    1. Denmark has a little easy with the free space (compared to say... poor Egypt). I personally would prefer a land bridge in Scandivania where Copenhagen is.
    2. Take out one of the city-state and/or civilizations in the East, it's too cramped.
    3. Just nitpicking considering the hexes you have to work with, but it really bothers me that Italy is connected to Sicily, and that Sardinia is 4x larger than Corsica.
