Is there a sea border between Java Timur and Bali? Is there a one big sea area that's both north and south of Java Timur, or is the sea area split in two? We thought it was all one big area, so it doesn't matter whether a ship is north or south of Java Timur, but I'd like to clear this one up.

Edit: You can see the area in question in this image:

I was wondering exactly the same thing. I also thought it was one sea region, but wasn't sure.

It's split in two. Both seas are adjacent to the westernmost area on Bali .

This will be in the FAQ appearing soon on our webpage.

Hello,

So ok, there are two sea areas, but are they adjacent ? Can a boat go from one to the other ?

Thank you,
Laurent

No, they are not adjacent.

Still working on the FAQ webpage

Clarifying:

Does it require two or three ships to ship an oil from the south-eastern corner of Kalimantan Selintay to the southern coast of Java Timor?

To me it looks like only two ships are required. ie that the sea area around eastern Java Timor wraps around by Bali to reach both the northern and southern coasts of Java Timor.

No, I think it should take three ships. There are two seas north and south of Java Timur and they are not adjacent (at least that's what I figured out from the posts above).

I asked the same question to Splotter a few weeks ago and received one week after asking the followimg reply:
The sea area around eastern Jave is actually tow sea area's (we were playing that it was one sea area) and they are *not* adjacent. As such transporting a good from the northern east Jave sea area to the southern Jave sea area would take 3 shipping legs because it has to pass through the Bali sea area (assuming there is a matching ship there).

Ahh, thanks. We looked hard there for a little line to separate the north from the south but obviously failed to spot it. Cool, we know better now.

Yes, it takes three ships: kalimantan Selatan -> Bali -> Java Timor (south sea).

We also had this wrong and were treating the sea around northern and eastern Java as one big area. The way the sea area line runs right through the island of Bali seemed to indicate this was what Splotter had in mind. To hear that the opposite is true--that the sea areas are not only separate but aren't even adjacent to each other--is rather surprising. I'm disappointed that Splotter didn't make this more clear.
