Re: Classic Cities: Perth [6.2.12] V03 - smaller size

Postby koontz1973 on Mon Feb 06, 2012 3:36 am

Can I suggest Victiria park neutral to VP East so a lucky drop in small games allows more openness to Perth. Also South Perth to Como so the bridge is not blocked by 6 neutrals.

Just a thought and you can take this as you like, but with sailing as the theme of the backdrop, why not move the map over a tad to the right, and have the left hand sailing boats as a territ connected to Freemantle East and City beach.

Cottlesoe is hard to read on the map because of the black line running through the l.

Yes you can, done!

Done!

OK i can do something there. It will mean a change in territories probably down in Gosnell to fit in some territories up above city beach - there is a ferry service that runs out to Rottnest Island from Fremantle and Sorrento which i will include. That would create your idea.

Will fix. :)

Like the added sea routes and the territs you placed them onto but would be a little worried about the line causing confusion. You have quite a bit of space there in the corner where you have explained it, is there a way to explain it without the line? Rottnest and Perth do not have docks. Will you add?
Is the neutral 3 on Swan or Dianella?

I'll explore the possibility

Rottnest and Perth do not have docks. Will you add?

I'll explore that also.

i think that is a left-over and should've been deleted -> next upload gone.

It seems to me like the borders need a lot of work. The graphics of the territories just aren't very appealling.

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.

Thanks chapcrap for yo-ur feedback.
Yes there are some inconsistencies etc with the graphics and those i will attend to. :)
As for the background, i quite like it myself as it fits in with a cycling theme along the banks of the Swan River that i will be developing.
Do you have a suggestion as to what the background should be?
Or do others agree that it should go.

Keep it. It fits with the city on the sea theme. All very watery.

As far as the background goes, if people haven't been following along, I doubt they could even tell that it supposed to be a city landscape. I don't know how koontz thinks it fits just because there is water on the map.

And what about the sea routes?

The city skyline might not be done to everyones taste but it is recognisable. cairnswk has done something that fits with the map overall. It is early days and it may change and the map itself may change, that is up to cairnswk. Perth is on the ocean so to have the docks and tree lined water front with the skyscrapres in the background fits the over all look. cairnswk has put in sea routes and sail boats so the water theme runs through out the background and into the map. Thats how I see it fitting.

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.
