You know I was thinking about this idea and I could do more to hone in on a better descriptor of this region. I would like to keep "heartland" in the title cause I want to stick with the heart motif, like in the would cuts. Maybe something like American Heartland: East, or American Heartland: Rustbelt, or something like that.

I think that might be good.

I would vote for Rustbelt between those two.

Re: American Heartland *Pennsylvania have your say*

Ok for a while I wasn't sure if I was going to keep working on this but I think I'm going to keep with it after all. Here's how I want to proceed. I want to work on this one state at a time. Right now I'll start with Pennsylvania, so now is the time for anyone who lives in, or has strong feelings, excessive knowledge, on Pennsylvania should speak up about territory names and the cities that are present, and their worth.


A note on cities. The cities I'll be including will be included purely on their population, importance in trade and business, and to a lesser extent historical, and cultural relevance. I'm not including Maybury because the best Apple Jam comes from there, it needs to be an important city.

Oh, I thoguht you were talking pictures...

Lexington is far greater than Louisville, most of the state likes it because of the basketball.
Louisville is kind of important to itself only.
Frankfort is the capital, but no one cares.
Florence is a better city than Covington to represent the northern part of Kentucky, plus it has the water tower.
Most of the other cities are insignficant.

How many do you want?

Well the "golden triangle" is Lexington Louisville And Northern kentucky.

Covington is bigger, but Florence is better.
The area calls it self northern Kentucky if you'd be willing to do that.
You could just use Cincinnati right at the southern Ohio border.

Cincinnati wouldn't work for his state bonus though...

And no decals is a great choice.

TBK...that bottom left corner of Kentucky....bit bare from a city and highway pov....makes the map seem a little unbalanced.
Perhaps you could include Paducah or Princeton. :)
PS, GFX-wise i am liking the design.

What about Bowling Green? It's much larger than Florence and Covington combined. Plus it's in the southern area of Kentucky, so it looks more visually balanced.

Yes, i had thought of that, but for me, it would be like using Florence creating a trianlge in that area.
The reason i looked more at Paducah was because it could join up (and does in RL) with both Louisville and St Louis, and fill that bottom left corner of the map more successfully.
Only my opinion though. :)
