As a solution to the predictability of the island maps generated by the default map
scripts (small and large island) I have created a Random Island map script. This script
randomizes many script variables to create a wide variety of maps. The maps vary widely
in nature, from large interconnected land masses seperated by channels of water, to
maps filled with dozens of small islands.
I love this map script! It's great how you never know what it's going to be like, although I've played it so much that I know every type of form this map will assume, from small starting islands with large extras, to large starting islands with small extras. I especially love it when the resources are all placed near the centre, it makes for a great battle with your opponent. This map is best played with Reveal Map turned off, then you TRULY don't know what to expect! This map is top of the line, for island lovers, and could even tickle the fancy of island haters...

That is very beautiful. It is quite different from the normal pattern!
How do you create such samples is JPG? They give a great look!

I love this sooo much its soo cool. Alot better then the origanial random maps that have round islands. Howmany island are round. But this is so randum(soory for my bad spelling)
It was cool i used it in the mad editor and got one with a long island in the middle were you could easly defend the holes.

Absolutely spectacular. You have done a marvelous job. Keep up the good work.

This is the best random map script I've seen so far. In fact, since I found this I have used no other. This format leads to some interesting situations (i.e. two islands on a tiny map, each with one tree each, making it nearly impossible to build ships or epoch up). Very well done.

one thing i did notice that none of the islands have pumpkins mostly only wild animals (includind tigers and wolfs)but with wild animals comps dont really evolve much because they just get killed and cant build there.
