IceBreakr, you are the king.
I've not noticed any bugs or unwanted features yet, and have travelled rather extensively throughout the region.
AI units travelling in convoys (2 or more vehicles, all types) from roughly Calamar to Peligron tend to move extremely slowly. Also, BMPs refused to cross the crossings betwene those two cities (on the west).
Is the island addition on the SE meant to look as rectangular as it does? It somewhat subtracts from an otherwise natural outline.
The oil refinery/port is, as a consequence of the low bridge north of it, unreachable unless you want speedboats to carry oil barrels
I don't personally think that more was better in this update: The NE bridge seems a huge undertaking (financially?) to reach a modest island, and the passage that connects Vidora and Majrago doesn't add to the beauty of that landscape. It was nice to imagine the entire bay forming the population center of the island, but now fishing boats and merchant vessels would have a hard time fitting through.
The Monga bridge, now that I look at the map, looks out of place aesthetically as well, given the connection by road south of it.
Otherwise very nice.
Edit: Oh! And Villon's airstrip points into a hillside, which is a no-no as far as aviation regulations go. I realize it's something of a rudimentary field, but given the flat surroundings, all other directions looked to be better alternatives.

Short info on new Plantiera section and recent upgrades on island:
El Presidente wanted a shiny big bridge there and he can afford it. No matter what is the price. Unlucky he couldn't afford to do the same in W Bay after that... bridge connecting NE island got built in only 6 months. Accord to BigMorgan that is in close ties with dictator, El Presidente wanted to impress his mistress living there.
A new Plantiera sector on SouthEast is a product of water evaporation and is mostly man-made (*grin*). Because of that the shape of rectangle.
Airport in Villan always housed only smaller planes and choppers and was there before the island expanded further south. Army only recently built two hangars there. Hillside nearby doesn't cause any real troubles, even for C130 pilots. Take off is always in NorthEast direction.
But there are still old settlements like Palida on NorthEast and several villages down South. People living here refuse to move and there are occasional clashes with the army and police. El Presidente wants to turn the whole area into oil pumping ground and threatens anyone who would stop the works (mission idea?).
Due to very shallow river there the river transport of oil is not possible. Port located in the bay there lost the meaning once Plantiera got built. Its abandoned right now. Army escorts bunch of trucks via main road now.
Great great I love this map sometimes I drive around with the civilian module active and hunt people hehehehhe
What do you recommend, repack with v1.3 or a new number?
I have to release unit fixes too, so hold on for v1.31 and v1.31 of units. I'll also make a combined Full version.
Right now please use Lingor Units v1.0 with island.
