    Yeah, it looks awesomely detailed, but without terraforming it a lot,
    and I mean a lot, it will be rather useless when it comes to building cities.
    Players will need to carefully place each road to avoid all the little
    unrealistic road elevations. And on this map, they will need to do it almost everywhere,
    and sooner or later, it will distract them from playing/building.
    Sorry, nice thought, though.

    If you bother to check the real place you'll see there are no big cities around Montserrat, only farms and small villages. If you want to build a large city on flat terrain, it would make sense to look up for another map...

    Well, so, first of all, how many options does that give you for city building?

    Also, that was not the main point. My point was that it will take endlessly long to build the roads
    when it comes to avoiding unrealistic road elevations. Even in real life, the houses are standing on
    wooden helping constructions... What the hell?

    Yeah, so it will take hours over hours to lay out the roads, and then you can only place like
    100 structures/buildings?

    As said, nice thought, and well, you do not actively play the game, hence I understand that
    you did not pay too much attention to the "play-ability" :)

    Did you see the map in game? There is plenty of room to build a small city with little to none terraforming.

    If you have no imagination, stick to flat maps. ;)

    How can I see it when you made it only for XXL...

    Also, what is that "little to no" terraformation?

    I mean, if you don't pay lots of attention, you will have bad results in the end, still.
    At least from my experience with XL. Whenever I "just terraform" I will have problems,
    because there are still micro-elevations, which are even more annoying, because there is are
    only time-stealing ways to get rid of them. And if you don't do, some of your houses will
    show the base, which can be annoying when it comes to showing off avenues...

    I am not saying that I don't believe you at all, but this is just your result, and I have no way to
    confirm it so far...

    Yeah, I like that, calling me a player with no imagination.
    Yeah, totally agree...

    Personally I like the realism of this card!
    Do not change anything Monty,
