Sorry about the delay.
We have a method for selecting the best possible map with akfaew's script and doing this will take some time.
Basically the scrip is run with a save and if the values are right that map will be used for the actual game. The biggest continent should be smaller than 50% of the total land mass and there should be plenty of smaller islands so that everyone would have a better chance of reaching them.
The list of the continent sizes will be released on the forum.
Also please review the winning conditions if you have time and patience for that
Here is the script: https://github.com/longturn/games/blob/ … t_sizes.pl
We (akfaew is actually doing that) are currently generating maps and those are reviewed with the numbers we get from the script. About 100 maps to choose from
Please hold on while we are looking for the perfect map
