    With the new civs and civ traits in Conquests, I'd like to know what land mass configuration you prefer.

    Personally, I use the Random option to increase the variety in my games -- and my game strategies.

    I am lazy, so I just choose random for everything but the Barbarians and the difficulty level. I really do not care what it is set to, as I can win (in theory) at any setting. I do kinda like archipelagos simply for the fact that I can have hugely massive empires that have spread to little crappy islands. Then I go Communistic, and have productive cities on crappy little islands.

    I prefer the Archipelago 80%, since it offers both: large continents as well as senseful maritim operations...

    I like Large Pangaea 80% water, because then you often end up with two large continents.

    I love random because it forces you to adapt your strategy as you explore the world. It's more realistic not knowing what the rest of the world looks like at the beginning of the game.

    I tend to go achipelago 60% water...one time I did that it ended up being a pangaea anyways so it's almost like a random option for 60% water, heh

    Continents 70% Large. It provides the most normal game experience.

    I'd play Huge but my PC can't take it.

    Continents, 70% Ocean since I like it to be as Earth like as I can make it
