I went ahead and read through this. I actually have been waiting to see a map that is split with a body of water. I think adding more water to the map is a good thing and will force players to be much more strategic. I would also like to see the map not a "waterworld" vibe but more of a Caribbean Island vibe or Hawaii where there are about 4-5 islands all habitable with enough Rescources on each to support players. Another idea would be to have the major monuments on their own island. I do like this idea as one main island does get boring after 2800 hours of rust. Even crossing hapis island sort of rock faces would be nice as well(ones u cant climb cuz they are too steep).
