You can download this scenario here. (It's designed for Play the World. If all you have is Civ III, try it and if it doesn't work, I can attempt to backport it for you.)
I am now working on another scenario, which is based on Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld novel. The map is a single river, which spirals from north to south pole. North-south movement is not possible. Resurrection and Richard Burton will not be included.
Update: I forgot to discuss starting civilizations and difficulty level. I removed most of the expansionist civs, as their scouting ability will be of little use when starting on a small island.
You should play this game on a difficulty level one tougher than what you are used to. Starting on a small island is possible in vanilla Civ, so you would think that the computer players would know to make a beeline for Mapmaking. They do not; on lower levels, where you can keep level with the computer players in tech, you will beat them to the main continent by a wide margin.
