I generally agree with Matt on making these tools available to the general public. A tool like an automapper, if it were to suddenly show up, would be a useful tool which should have been included in the game in the first place. Since it wasn't, and someone may have spent a lot of time working out the coordinates for all 4802 countries on Golden Rainbow, building a database of said coordinates and worked out a way to ratio them so they can build (on the fly) a farely accurate map. Then this person can do what every he/she wants with these tools. Perhaps allow members of a certain friendly federation have access to it, or sell access to it for Gold Coins, or delete it, or modify it so I won't map certain countries. Or perhaps they would just keep it private until it is fully functional and on some secure server someplace instead of in his/her office.
