    I raise your map from 1650 and unveil this map depicting the area in 1702:

    I used the dates provided and the locations of cities to create this Google Map:

    Hopefully this helps us define where the bounds of LW might be to start and later on in development.

    That is indeed a nice map, especially showing the zones of conflict (areas that could be heavily populated by outposts and soldiers, less civilians roaming around? Folks less likely to be willing to talk to you, more likely to shoot you on sight, and if they *do* let you speak, they will often be very unhappy).

    But to my eyes, it looks like it only marks French Forts? may have to be cross-referenced with a similar type British map?

    It is indeed focused on the French settlements. My Google Map however is more focused on French and English towns as opposed to forts. As we discussed in the Discord, forts were being attacked, burned, moved, and rebuilt frequently. The more research I do on forts, for instance the forts owned by the Hudson Bay Company, the more I realize that the status of a fort can change drastically from year to year. I would go so far as to say that all forts should be randomly generated (based on proximity to large bodies of water and/or towns) and have variable chances for the status of the fort. For instance whether or not it is abandoned, destroyed, well stocked, if nobody’s home because they went out hunting, etc.
