[tr1][td1] Manfred [/td1][td] 8/15
A new Automated Move capability has been announced, see https://beta.forum.elvenar.com/index.php?threads/the-solution-player-movement.5675/
The developers will, hopefully, provide us with a new Move/Immigration/Goldmine algorithm that's efficient from a programming point of view, but it's very difficult to anticipate all of the emergent behaviors.

Manfred's City is either at the exact center of the zz1: Beta map, or very close to the center. As I've previously done in several of the US worlds, see https://us.forum.elvenar.com/index.php?threads/arendyll-neighborhood-watch.2973/page-2#post-21788 I'm now tracking bellwether cities on the zz1 10 o'clock radial. All of the cities on this radial will have the same boosts: Elixir, Crystal, Marble, so when some of them are moved they should end up on a parallel diagonal, but nearer to the center of the map.

If you wish to monitor a similar sample, I used the following techniques:

• I used Chrome to zoom out on the world map, and located approximately the corners of the flat-topped hexagon that is emergent due to the spiral pattern that's used to fill the map. The vertex cities are enumerated at the bottom of the list
• I then zoomed in a bit so that I could read the names, and so that the map segment boundaries started artifacting which allowed me to use them as grid lines to avoid getting lost on the map.
• I then traced the various vertex diameters:
○ 11 o'clock to 5 o'clock
○ 1 o'clock to 7 o'clock
○ 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock
and simply noted which city was ALWAYS in the middle of each diameter, which can only happen at the very center of the map.

• The tessellation on the World Map provides several strong patterns, that will keep you from getting lost. In particular, the sector sequence for the 10 o'clock radial is always
City
....Crystal
........Magic Dust
............City


• If you merely wish to find out where your city is on the World Map
◘ Press H to get the global roster
◘ Search for Manfred, right click on his city, and visit it
◘ Press W to go to Manfred's city on the World Map
◘ Drag the map just a bit, and follow the Blue Arrow that points to your city

This is very interesting. I'm not very far away from the player you mention. That would mean I'm already at the center of the game so there is no need for me to move anywhere. :)

thanks a lot for your work, @Katwijk !
I know where I'm at now :D !
that is, not that far away from the center, along the 4 hour diagonal, but there is a huge desert between my half-populated zone and the center per-se :)

[tr1][td1] Manfred [/td1][td] 8/15
The move is looking good in our 10 o'clock bellwether radial.
• BUMM, who has a score of 60,010 replaced a Goldmine in Ring 24 during the 8/22 test runs,
as highlighted. That's evidence of a successful move.
• We still have our original Goldmines in Ring 27 and beyond.
• We have cities in Rings 39 and 48 that are active,
and may be eligible for the next set of moves.
• None of our cities in Ring 51 and beyond were active during the past week,
and they therefore remained in place, as one would expect.

I have been moved today
I stand now much closer to the center, on the 5 hour radius, with plenty of cities around mine;
small inactive cities and gold mines to the far south east of my discovered area, hoping to see some people join us next week :D
anyway, my culture buildings are entirely polished, a bright sun shines on my city, and it took me 2 hours on my sluggish PC to visit all these people ;)
