Ok, sounds like a nice solution as well.

Yes, the size of the ports should become smaller, however the decorations like
palms should probably stay big, otherwise it becomes to tiny.
We could also use smaller heightmaps per tile, I guess even 129x129
provides more than enough detail for the terrain.

Yes, I've been thinking about the same, even SDL_Mixer won't be needed any
more, as I'm planning to integrate OpenAL, which allows us to make use of
spatial sound effects. However, building the complete Caribbean Map has
preference for now.

I'm subscribed to the ogre-cvs-changes and there hasn't been a commit
of cegui yet, only the removal of the old GUI system.

Let's stay with 0.15.1 for now, current CVS has a rewritten resource
management, which will definitely unveil other unwanted side effects.
