How are half points counted in this game? We played that they are rounded down all the time and the actual number on the VP track counts when checking player order. But one player argued that the half VP should count here as well.

What is correct?

The VP marker shows "1/2 Pt" on one side. Just flip it to the half-point side as necessary. For example, if you have 6 villages, control 4 island groups, and have a presence in 3 atolls, you would have 11 1/2 pts. Place your VP marker on the 11, with the half-point side up.

Haven't played the game, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about... but wouldn't it have been easier to multiply all points awards by 2, and make the score track longer? (Or maybe that's the issue?).

I suspect that making the score track much longer would have been a bit of an issue. Also 1/2 points aren't all that common. They do occur, but turning the counter over is a very practical way of solving it, without cluttering up the board.
