Use the outriggers as territories on their own, just make sure you can fit in the army numbers on the territory as well as the outrigger. Can you add in one more outrigger? Then maybe you can have the bonuses for the outriggers as such:
+1 for 2
+3 for 3
+5 for 4
+6 for 5
+8 for all
Or something like that.


sounds cool to me... do you have suggestions on where to put the new outrigger?
1-Kaho'olawe has some historical nautical significance
2-Halawa the easternmost terrtry of Molokai has a natural bay
3-north shore of Oahu has real life ports
4-all 3 western territories of Maui have real life ports.
5-the SE terrtry on Lanai
6-the terrtry on Kauai just South of the current port

5-the SE terrtry on Lanai


This one seems to make more sense IMO.

I agree with you, SE Lanai has Manele Bay, so it works with the goegraphy as well as Lanai being a good central place to have a boat as far as gameplay is concerned.

the territory lines can be easily redrawn here, i would think that the same territory having a boat and attack lines to Maui & Kahoolawe makes Lanai potentially holdable... otherwise its gonna be really hard to hold this tiny island if 3/4 territories have attack routes. what do you think?

also, having a +1 for holding 2 boats, would this occur on the first move of some random drops? is there anyway to avoid someone getting a bonus on their first turn just for being lucky?

Okay here's my suggestion. Add that one outrigger, and make them separate territories. If my count is right that would make 44 territories, and we can code all the outriggers as starting with 3 neutral. This will bring us to 38 (not a good number) territories. If you can add in 4 more territories and we should be good to go.

roger that, i like those suggestions. it won't be too much of a problem to add 4 more territories either.

btw, i just checked out the Antarctica map today, amazing work! cant wait to play it :)

It's been a little while since an update and I just wanted to check to see how things are progressing. I've been following this map a bit, and just got up to speed on the latest posts... are you going to implement isaiah's suggestions, or do you have another idea in mind for finding a Golden Number?

I'll comment more once I know that this map is still active.

We are still working on it but Esiemer just started a new job so we slowed down a bit. Not to worry, we will hit again in about a week.

Thanks to Sully and everyone else for the support. Saberty, stofer71 and I are all committed to seeing this through. But like saberty said, I've gone from unemployed and checking this thread 5 times a day and wondering why there wasn't more feedback, to employed and overwhelmed, to a sweet job offer in another state with 12 days to move.

So I hope to have the next version up by the Ides of March.

Aloha,

here's a feeble attempt at another hawaii map a few years ago. Not much there - but worth a quick read.

But look what I did with the water there - you may want to make the ocean a cool pattern instead of the swimming pool feel it has now.

Are you talking of the first map in the first post?

I can only see the second map, and the ocean doesn't appear at all patterned to me.

After a fortnightly review, I noticed there hasn't been an update for sometime. So, come the next fortnightly review, if there isn't an update made, we will have to move into the Recycling Bin until the mapmaker makes an update. :cry:
