I am ready to take this map into the large version - 10% larger only.
I would ask anyone wanting to have a say in any further graphics before i do so, to step forward now and examine this map to give their input, or forever hold your peace.
I will not, and i repeat, after having put this call out, i will not attend to any suggestions after the graphics process has ended, (unless it applies to a change in gameplay in BETA) regardless of the conditions of the foundry.
This map has been in development for near 18 months and i consider this to be quite ample time for anyone to put their suggestions forward.
I do not want a repeat of some similar ocassions from the past where major adjustments have been requested in an untimely manner - like several months after graphics stamp.
Think what you will of me for being harsh on this one, but ...

For consideration towards the end (reminder):
the conditional border text might read a player may use a command vessel region to assault any commander's monarch region, but only if one region of that commander's command vessel is held. i presume that a command vessel can assault any commander's monarch region, including his own.


I am not in favour of this workding as it is too lengthy.

The only concerns I have are the dotted arrows. Why the first one is darker than the others? (sorry if it's explained somewhere)
Moreover the dark one is much better: more clear and clean.
I think that arrows can be improved a bit, for example teh one between Portland and Poole LB has a dot that is darker because it overlap the border between the two regions and there's also a dot that is visible under the arrowhead.

That's all. Everything else looks fine, but give me the time to sleep and take a second look tomorrow with less tired eyes, just to be sure to not miss something. ;)

Ah Doom....this is the balancing aspect of the gamplay...to make it a little harder to conquer these terts as an attack line to opponents command vessels

The other ones do make sense, I will go back and look at his reasons for that.

EDIT:So it slows yellow from taking Paxat San Estobel as easily, but it doesn't stop teal from taking Santa Ana so easily.

Triumph and Revenge have no such block between them.

I realize Gameplay is closed, I just want to look at these last things.

Iancanton, do you have a comment?

sorry for the delayed response, doom. the n2 on la manuela prevents paxat san estaban (the correct spelling is actually paxat san esteban) from bombarding the ss paxat la isabela auto-deploy from the start. the intention is to prevent all cases of player 1 using his first turn advantage to conquer a single, then immediately bombard an opposing bonus before anyone else has played. ordinary starting ships do not necessarily have this protection.

in the main legend, command ship is used, while the conditional borders text has vessel. perhaps flagship can be used in both places to avoid confusion?

ian, esteban is fixed...
i'd prefer to not use flagship, rather i simply changed vessel to ship.
please refresh for changes as above.

ian. can i ask are you all done now? so i can move this to large :)

Couple questions regarding the XML cairns...

Are the SS Ships part of the Single Ships of Same Nation bonus? I don't think so but I want to make sure.

And Vanguard Command Ship...are the bow and stern intentionally reversed compared to every other ship? Same with San Lorenzo.

And perhaps I'm being dense here, but regions like Diana, Sun, Moon, Doncella, etc., aren't LB's or SS's, but have the Monarch's Commander's shields there...is there something special about these regions? I'm operating under the assumption that only the Spanish side has the SS's, and only the English side has the LB's, and that both sides don't have both a SS and a LB.

Also, there are two San Salvador's on the map. First one is right below Santa Anna Command Ship and the second one is to the upper left of San Cristobal Command Ship.

The XML is over 3500 lines and I haven't even done borders/bombardments yet lol :o

yes they are part of that bonus.

well, yes intentionally, just to mix up the gameplay...not all ships would have faced the same way in battle ;)

yes these are starting positions, refer map front page.

That is correct except for the LB Army Brussel, which counts as part of the same side for the Spanish +1 for 9 bonus. i'll have to put something in the map about that - done.

Also, there are two San Salvador's on the map. First one is right below Santa Anna Command Ship and the second one is to the upper left of San Cristobal Command Ship.

the ship below Santa Ana has been changed to São Cristóvão

The XML is over 3500 lines and I haven't even done borders/bombardments yet lol :o

Are U sure you haven't doubled up somewhere :lol:

Every single beacon territory ALSO has a regular territory there, right? i.e., Beacon Poole, and Poole, are two separate regions.

Yes. Note Plymouth Beacons are now named also A and B.

Postby cairnswk on Fri Dec 07, 2012 9:07 pm

This question needs to be examined again.

The +11 bonus...is that ONLY for holding the Monarch and 4 Treasury territories? Or does that include the bow and stern of the command ships as well? The "Commander's" in the legend has me a little confused. I don't believe it includes any part of the command ships, but I just want to make sure.

This bonus should include the bow and stern of the command ship, plus all the treasury territories but not the Monarch position.

I think that now the wording has changed a little, this bonus can be brought down somewhat...what do others think?

Thanks cairns. Can they also be assaulted by the Treasury positions like the Command Ships and SS's/LB's can?

And SS Amor (for D. Medina Sedona) is not the same color as all the other SS's.

Instructions- Treasury Movement:
Each player can move one-way outward to earn additional bonuses or can assault from any treasury position to same player's Command Ship (B & S), Supply Ship (SS), or Land Base (LB) only.

Does that modification answer that? In other words no they cannot be assaulted from the treasury.

And SS Amor (for D. Medina Sedona) is not the same color as all the other SS's.

that is now fixed in v30 above. SS and colour has been removed from Julia Zabra. and SS Amor is now same colour as other SS's.
