Region: The Heartland

Years back, when we first started creating the map, Ineptia asked me to come up with a scale for it. I did some research, and number crunching and came up with what I thought was a good scale. (Don't laugh at a BA-History doing math. Thats why we have calculators. )

Well, I goofed. It seems us History geeks really CAN'T do math. I plugged a couple wrong numbers in and instead of having an area roughly the size of Earth, we have something about the size of Saturn or Jupiter.


So, what I was thinking, is maybe, in order to correct this at least some, perhaps cutting the scale roughly in half. Instead of 180 pixels being 1000 miles, maybe have that same size be the equivelent of 400 miles?

Any ideas, thoughts or objections? Or should we just let it go as is, and continue having a huge area? There would be no actual changes to the map, or locations or anything, just that the scale would be dialed back some.
