And what about the sea routes?

What about the sea routes? I'm sorry but i am really not a mind reader chapcrap. What are you trying to say here.

Also, it looks like Perth connects to Fremantle instead of connecting to Rottnest Island. I'm not the biggest fan of the dashed line sea routes. And the abstract city line as the background/side image on the right should go.

Fortunately, you don't have to read minds. It was part of my first post.

As far as the background, you can barely even tell that it's a landscape. That's the problem I have. I don't have a problem with a landscape in general, just the one that is used. It just looks like a messy blob of colors.


In the bottom right corner it says Ferry Service connects Perth to Fremantle, Rottnest Island and Sorrent(o :oops: )
You don't like the dashed lines...so i was thinking that there was some other issue with the sea routes.
The wording needs changing, so what would you prefer to see there as a viable alternative that would better decribe this situation?

It would be most helpful if you have something to compalin about, then raise the issue but provide your alternative, particularly with wording.

Well, I would use a thinner line for the sea routes and make it a line instead of dashes. If Perth and Rottnest connect by ferry, why do they need to connect by airport as well? I was looking for a little clarification there. Does Perth border Sorrento by ferry as well? And Freemantle border Sorrento? That's what the wording says, but the routes do not really show that. They show Perth-->Freemantle-->Rottnest-->Sorrento

a line? OK, i was thinking i would put in docks.

It's actually Perth Airport that connects with Rottnest Island by air. Perth and Perth airport are several moves away from each other.
This could lead to someone holding Rottnest Island and being strategic by attacking 4 terrtories.

I've been looking at this obviouslysince being raised...
Ferries should connect
* Fremantle with Perth bothways
* Fremantle with Rottnest Is. Both ways
* Sorrento with Rottnest Is. both ways.
I will place this into the next map.

Docks would be a much better solution, especially if they all border.

Re: [Vacation - valid until Sept 2012] Classic Cities: Perth

Postby thenobodies80 on Tue Oct 30, 2012 5:43 am

The six months of vacation has expired, for this reason this topic is now labeled as [Abandoned]. If the original mapmaker wants to continue this map project an update must be provided. From this moment anyone else is free to take this project without the original mapmaker permission, but it has to be started from the scratch.

I've made two updates in 2 days, and still this hasn't been moved.
Is the foundry now totally defunct?

Great looking map as always.

The bonusses take some effort to identify. Maybe the swans could be ordered in the same composition as the map? This might concentrate them on the bottom right corner. Bonus of 4 for Melville could be 3, as there are 3 boundaries.
