Right now there is some discussion going on about reducing the default size of the IVAN world map. The current size is 128x128 which is quite big, given that most of the world map is largely inaccessible. New players also often find their characters starving to death looking for a place to go.
One proposal is to reduce the default world size to 64x64. This could be made configurable, either a choice of three or four sizes (128x128, 96x96, 64x64, or 32x32), or a slider bar from 32x32 to 128x128.
Another request is to optionally choose between a pangea world and several continents (what we have now). This is because the number of new worldmap locations has increased recently.
The idea is to make a pangea the default world style so that players both old and new can easily reach every location on the world map, but that players that prefer the current style can configure this to "classic".
