    k... weren't lots of maps written in latin (no matter the language of origin) since latin kind of spawned a lot of other languages? or something? D: Idk

    Yes but you should translate the text to see what it mean, that was my point.

    It's noting that of a problem for Lingon since I suppose it's only temporary.

    Lorem Ipsum is a classic placeholder text, I'm just using it to check how a block of text will impact the composition. I'll write that bit in english. Sorry Jalyha, I'm not so ambitious I'm willing to learn a new language just for this I will do some research about transatlantic flight in the 40's though

    Lingon, your map is getting better and better ! I'm curious to see what you put in the place of the quite "sadomasochistic" latin text (if I translate it correctly)

    @Jalyha: Haha, I've noticed that about attention span, if you don't mind me saying But hey, go for it!
    @Max: Thanks, I like the text better to!
    @Ilanthar: Thank you! Yes, it is really quite morbid if I remember right… I haven't tried translating it, but I've read something about that. Pretty funny actually, how such a text has become so widespread…

    So, according to Wikipedia the Allmighty, there were about 90 commercial flights across the North Atlantic per week in 1947. Most of them landed on the Azores, which is exactly in the location of my Antillia, or Ireland, I guess for fueling. So, for ease of calculation, say 20 flights per week took the entire distance in one go, leaving on average 10 planes per day on the Antillian airports. Even with 40's tech, that should be easily manageable for a single airport. But… maybe the traffic would have been a little higher with more available stops along the way, so… I think I'll keep two I've also replaced the morbid latin with some pseudo-fake history.
