some players also often use colorful language to say something..
Cool

Yeah, finally a slope for water skiing  LOL

Good job! Makes sense and eliminates some unusable plots from the map. 
So next are volcanos to give some percentages on Ring Smithing? Wink

Overall a +1 for a (so far) smooth and useful update.

I still think that water should massively amplify bow attacks, and heavily penalize non-bow defense. Although maybe that opinion should change now that we have boats running around the map.

You can shoot bows back and forth between boats. It is harder to leap horses back and forth between boats... especially if the horses get sea sick.


Of course the real winner should be a catapult on the coastline with a big bag of flaming herbs.

I think I saw the troops manning the catapult behind that big barn over there with a big bag of flaming herbs and they were passing it around between themselves.

The only creatures that can claim sov on swamps is alligators, who get a food bonus from unwary fishermen.
