the above image is available as a medium sized (1024 x 1024 pixels) or super large (14,000 x 17,000 pixels) images. super-large images are perfect for poster-sized printouts.

with downloadable maps come a plethora of possibilities – above you see a map of hot-spot growth between 4.22.2006 and 5.9.2006 (medium size also available.) most growth occurs in the newer sims, either on the northern continent or the two extensions to the southern continent.
