Re: Tyranny...
 
 
The "unfavorable distribution" was a deliberate design choice made by OOO for cobalt/viridian.

Why would the devs do this? Well, do this to the extreme that has been done on the cobalt side...Any talk on this somewhere else on the forum?

Azure/Midnight was the first ocean that OOO designed, Cobalt/Viridian was the second. I don't know of any exact discussion on the issue, but I strongly suspect that OOO wanted to encourage trading runs. On Malachite, OOO tried an even more extreme design of using lots of medium sized islands so that no individual island could have all types of stalls.

For what it is worth, some of the stalls on jubilee may be there primarily to collect herbs/minerals, which might be quite profitable.
