Your bonus values could use some tweaking, but it's hard to say without the impassables drawn in. My next question is similar to my original: what reasoning do you have behind the bonus area divisions? I don't know about you, but I hate bonus areas named after cardinal directions. I must say, I like how this map has a bunch of attainable small bonus areas, I think that will set it apart from other classic-style maps in that regard, aside from the new geography. I'm a big fan of the Baltics, particularly Estonia; I'm stoked to see your taking up this project! :)

The bonus area names can change. Impassables will be coming soon so should help out more with things and see how this will shape up.

Still deciding on the bonus names, territory names, and impassables. I am working on the impassables now. This style I posted may not be what I ended up with. Fire away at me!

No I cannot take credit for it, but rather about 5 layers all into one.

The parchment effect is neat, but the image on the parchment looks awfully computerized for such a primitive media, if that makes sense. In addition, if these are modern boundaries, why are ou making it look "old school"?

Anyway, not that these graphical concerns have to be addressed with right away, but I thought I'd share my thoughts on the issue now since you posted it. Keep up the good work, Bruce!

Nice work so far... though the black area should be replaced with wood or something. Like a desk. That way its not a map of the baltics floating out space. You could also brown the edges of the map as well to make it look more like a three dimensional map.

The only thing I'd like to see, and I believe its been mentione dbut I'd like to add my support, are actual territory names and bonus names.

I will be working on those today. Territory names are easy.. Bonus names could be tricky... I am likely going to ditch the parched look in the final version... stay tuned!

You know I will be keeping a close eye on this map, especially on Estonia. Don't know how much help I can be but I might drive you nuts with my rants and nitpicking 8-[

Have you thought how you want to name the regions (counties/cities/something else)? It is probably one of the few things that I can help you with so just thought to bring it up. I'm not that familiar with Latvian/Lithuanian so don't know how created the territories but I noticed that for Estonia you used counties. As I understand, you have 2 possibilities here - use the county name or the "capital" city that each county has; which in some cases actually match. Let me know if I can provide some info about that.

Good looking map so far! I wish you the strenght to go through with it, especially as this is probably the closest map of Estonia I will see on this site!

P.S. You know where my wall is and it is opened 24/7 :lol:

As for gameplay, I'd like to see some variation from the standard model. Nothing too complex, maybe just an additional collection bonus of some kind in addition to the standard bonus areas...?

I posted this about the other Baltic States map that was started but never finished: Via Baltica. This could be the extra something though there might be other things also that I haven't thought about.

I am fairly sure I want this to be straight up. Nothing other than regular bonuses. No capitols, no objectives or nothing else other than a classic style map.

@ amazzony .... I am working on the territory names, but will need help with bonus names.
