TURN 34 ORDERS DUE Monday, August 26th, 2002, 11:59 p.m.


Going back to an old comment I had made many turns ago. I received a set of orders that were in Document format. They would not convert easily into text nor would they convert easily into Document format again. Player tried resending the orders but once again sent them in Document format. They were once more incomplete when converted. I forfeited the players turn because I have statement this on turn 16, 17 and 18 if the orders will not convert into text format correctly a blank set of orders will be made for that nation. I will state it right now if you like your Document formated orders fine, just don't send them to me. Copy all the information into an email message and sent your orders that way. Make sure they are readable after copying.

A side note for those who are wondering since I can find no reference for this anywhere it's just make it a standard use that 2 NFP will equal 1 cargo when loaded onto ships.

Due to an upcoming vacation on July 20th I will be pushing the next turn back until the next month. So, turn 34 will be due in August giving everyone just about two months to work out their turns are credit issues if they have any. I'll still be answering email so keep sending in your questions. I might be on vacation with the family but I'll not be out of contact.

Will be available via the main web page only. Make sure you gain one of these maps for your area.


I have made a few alterations to the maps. These will only be reflected on maps you get from me.

  1. Move the border between the Bay of Biscay and the Celtic Sea north, so that it is possible to move directly between the English Channel and the Bay of Biscay. Brittany no longer borders the Celtic Sea.
  2. The Dvina and Dnepr rivers no longer connect. The current border is now the northen end of the Dnepr. The Dvina extends only as far south as the Kirivitch-Kur-Polotsk border. A level 3 canal can be built to connect the rivers.
  3. The Grand Canal in China has not be built. So the rivers of the Yangtze and Yellow don't connect.
  4. Another change it's in the Black Sea. Most will notice that there's a Black Sea and Mare Negri (French for Black Sea). Mare Negri is now called Western Black Sea. And the Black Sea half is now Eastern Black Sea.
  5. Iceland is now a seahold. This will allow anyone to sail around Iceland so they are not forced to land and cross the land itself.
