    Instead of one bigger map, we should be able to change the size of map because we don't want to break existing saves. I was thinking about 3 different sizes: default, 2x bigger and 4x bigger.


    Actually, bigger map would cause more lags and users would have more space for their lag machines.

    If you increase length of map 10 times, playable area will increase 100 times. This will probably cause lags because computer will have much more things to calculate.

    No. The source code of the game can't have that much area or it will break.

     Untrue. Simply only changing the size in the sourcecode can create this.



    I can even open saves with it.


    You can save the now much smaller save into a stamp and paste it all along the bottom, then blow it up if you like. Infact, I'd say the only negative thing about this is that some interface elements (namely when you view other's saves) don't line up perfectly, and the performance is rather bad.

    Irregardless, this will never happen with the official build. It has been said a lot of times before.

    I'm sure the performance on that is awful, lol. But it does look cool

    could this possibly a downloadable mod or extra unofficial build that is downloadable?
