Co-Ex World Explorer - Third Release: Exodus To Kobe

In this mini-game, you can play as either Germany or Korea (single or multi-player).  Your goal is to find Kobe.

Most of the key game features (e.g. domestication and evolution of animals) still remain to be implemented.  This fully functional mini-game serves primarily to illustrate the power of Dynamic Map Generation (行動的ダイナミック地図開発).

Here are five unique starting maps, all dynamically generated from the same seed map (with the location of Japan semi-randomized):

Germany in NW, Korea in NE, Japan to the south.

In this map, the Korean peninsula may turn out to be an island.

In this map, a Denmark-like formation separates the North Sea and the Baltic. 

In this map, Germany and Japan have grown together to form a single continent.

The Osaka plain is clearly visible to the east of Kobe (forested tile).

For single player mode, simply delete the contents of row 7, col 1 in "Maps" tab.  

To add a third player, type "Germany", "Korea", or "random" in row 8, col 1 of "Maps" tab, and also make sure to create three additional tabs, which you must "move to end".  Type a color index in row 8, col 2.  Of course, due to the semi-randomized location of Japan, the third player will be at a disadvantage.

You must enable macros for this game to run in Excel.  Never run Excel macros from questionable or unverified websites.
