    I heard someone mention they wanted a Caribbean map for Pirate scenarios. I have one converted, but it's all grassland, and I need terrain data on the area. I found this, but I'm somewhat skeptical to believe this provides full cartographical data:

    I completely trust Encarta (if you got this offline, that's where it came from). I would trust it. It's just not that detailed.

    It looks exactly like Encarty. I'm pretty sure it is.

    I have no clue about jungle though, sorry :(.
