It should. That I believe is a Sully or natty question.

Um, I'm not up to date with the specifics. What exactly is the manual issue in conquership?

Not sure I like the terrain, it looks a little sketchy! I think you definitely need to touch it up a bit!

This is easily the best looking map on the site so this is BS.

For the besieged, you state that all city regions connect to each other. That means I can attack Dock 1 from the Castle right? If so, I don't think you need all the attack arrows within the city.

Other than that, it looks like the bonuses are good, things look pretty much balanced. That said, I'll get Ian to look this over.

No need to get defensive DiM ;)! The terrain in this map is not as good as your other maps. You can do better than this! Sure it's not a sketch which is why I said "sketchy" but it doesn't look good enough compared to what I expected. That's the point I was trying to make.

yeah, sorry that line of text with "all city regions..." was supposed to be deleted when i added the connections inside the city :)

so the connections in the city are the ones that have to be taken into account.

it's not about being defensive. it's just that sketchy is completely opposite of what this is. you could have said something like "this doesn't seem to be as detailed as your other maps" or "you should try and add more landscape features".

anyway, the map is detailed enough and it also has plenty of landscape features for an area this size. in fact it might even have too man.
it's rather unrealistic to have in such a small area a lake, some hills, a river, a gulf, cliffs, sea, beach and forests.
i could have easily made sea on one side and plain on the other and it would still have been very realistic.
if i start adding mountains volcanoes, marshes and swamps and who knows what else it will look bad.

V11:
*removed the "all city terits connect..." from the legend
*changed tents to camps in the legend
*connected dock 3 to quarter 2 instead of church to prevent a rush to the castle
*connected church to quarter 2.

Balloon is still misspelled in the legend ;)

Another thing, the ships look slightly blurry for some reason... Is there any way to make them more crisp, like the artilleries and towers are?

Very cool looking map. One suggestion I have is to consider adding some sort of indicator to the legends at the top, which groups components together in bullets, since that is essentially what they are.

Not unlike what natty dread did in his (smaller / more limited) Eurasia map legend perhaps: viewtopic.php?f=64&t=159163&start=675#p3615230

Keep up the good work.
