|The Old World||The New World|
The map was created following the same rules as the Big Map of the World, only the grid was set to 5×5 (rather than 2×2) degrees.
The game is less realistic than with the Big Map of the World: the scale is so large that the necessary distortion of many parts becomes too big and many features cannot be rendered at all; the continents are too small (they can support only a few cities); the civilizations occupy too large portions of the world, and inappropriately large areas are accessible in the early stages of the game. Nevertheless, the map serves well for a quick game in a familiar environment, especially if one wants to feel the self-satisfaction from conquering a whole continent within a few years.
Small Earth Nations are recommended for the historical nations and their birthplaces. The continents look more familiar with non-isometric tiles (e.g., Trident).
