I have noticed more than once that I can start on an island or far from other cities while my opponents do not. Are you going to provide an algorithm that tries to give each player a roughly equal position at the start? As you know a bad start can wreck you for a whole game...

Yes. Some work is already being done on that topic for the next release. In single player mode it was not as important because it just made the game more or less hard but for multiplayer it is more important. Also the screen saver would be better if the army you are watching did not start on an island.

I will be pushing out a 0.978 tonight. That version will try to keep you from starting next to an island or a lake.
