This map I've added units, ships and resources in order to create a quicker buildup in Polynesia games for the TAD version of AOE3. It is not by me, but rather by Ragnorak_Hero and Dansil92 and the TSREV Clan.
Map is changed slightly; Map size 2.1x per player, Player Islands have been doubled in size (725, 725 tiles instead of 400, 400), and the Center Island has been enlarged (0.0275, 0.0250, up from 0.020, 0.010). Trade Routes on South and North Islands can now be upgraded to Trade Cart and Iron Horse.
The AI will do better on 1v1 and I enlarged the player starting island for this reason.

Place in My Documents - My Games - Age of Empires III - RM3
Then run Age of Empires III: Asian Dynasties and select "Custom Maps" in Single Player or Online to play.
Shows up as "Island Polynesia".
AI does not do so well with 2v2 on this map. I recommend that you play online with it vs people.
Please enjoy the map!
