Broken Lands World Map Data

We will be updating the data-feed for the world map (datafile_worldmap.txt) to include the Broken Lands tomorrow; a more than doubling of the squares in this file.

If you are the creator of any third party tools services that use this file please be aware that it has grown significantly and is now 308 MB uncompressed (43 MB gzipped).

The available data feeds are:" rel="nofollow -

We hope that none of the 3rd party tools use this file directly in the client as it would put a major download requirement on the users of your tool as well as have a significant performance impact on the browser.

Does this mean that the resource allocation for BL will be accurate as of tomorrow?

Two things: Is there a time that will be given when the exodus can begin to TBL?  Also is there any options available for speeding up the 30 day plus migration using the exodus?

I'm guessing "no" to both questions.

You guess right!

We'll release BL as and when we're finished with testing it, and this will be without notice.  Whatever time of day (or day of week) we pick will suit some and not others.  So, we'll basically do it, without warning, when it's baked.

And no, we're not going to speed up Exodus.

Yay for progress!  Looking forward to Broken Lands opening and hopefully a great crop of new players experiencing Illy for the first time.

Do like the lack of notice on when it opens.  Gives us little guys a better chance

Well, according to the original plans you could use exodus to BL after a while which meant days. That would be perfectly enough for players located in the northern sector (like me) to exodus the cities as much south as you can on Elgea so you would not suffer any penalities when BL opens. The new changes makes our chances really unequal. Telling the truth I would need more than 30 days to exodus which is unfair. I would say in order to balance the things a system which speeds up exodus would be really good. Maybe the more the north your city is the more +% movements bonus you get. (Ofc this will never be more speed than the cities originally located to the south). Restricted for a time after opening up and only would apply to targets located in BL.
