Well the new contenant would not be at all close to the caves for 2 reasons.
1. It would be just like the others not enclosed in a tight ariea.
2. It would not have the annoying transit links that you can easly get lost on.

It would be concerderd new because it has more water coverage than any have had brefore but the reasoning for this is to make it more of a navy fight.

I do however think that "sailing" from 1 ariea to the next is a good idea. But this idea could be implmented inbetwene the "Main" contenants.

You mean like Sea Mines or Depth Charges?

Well, either that, or some sort of floating spawn/base carrier ship, could be used to implement a way to get a new foothold on a lost-continent. If the foothold was destroyed or something, you could take a set of secondary objectives that would construct and launch a floating faction base from a different continent that would sail across the ocean and introduce a new attack vector on the continent. That might be interesting.
Maybe thay could put 1 foothold on 3 separite "main" contenants if thay do that and then when it is more open to fight to another contenant that is when naval battles take place to fight to the other contenants.
I know that it sounds more like the old lattuce link system but if the whole "planet" is on the hex system it could make for some intresting tactics/fights.
