This water map has the same amount of resources as normal, but they're extremely close to where you start allowing for faster aging up and upgrades but no 5 hour epics. Be carefull when building, what and where your buildings are could make all the difference. There are four possible starting positions: Tazmania, Inrercargill, Christchurch, and the North Island. The standard AI plays fine on this map. This file contains:
NZ Blank- A blank template of New Zealand with accurate shoreline although I had to warp Tazmania over to give a little more land area.
NZ Fixed- Just like the above map but with resources, semi-accurate terrain, and 4 players in fixed positions.
NZ Dynamic- Just like the above map but with a trigger feature (containing about 130 effects) that lets you choose where to be placed and I added the Maoris (indeginous peoples to NZ).
