Eh I think you're getting a little carried away. You have some neat idea's but that's a completely different map you're developing there.

Let's start with this:

there will be only one bonus, if I good understand... not the best opinion.

No, there will Not be only one bonus. All the old bonuses will still exist however for whomever holds London he receives +1 for any 2 regions in the King's Dominion and not just in the Eastern region. The Bombarding idea may not be bad. Or maybe if you hold London and a certain number of castles (or all of the Kings dominion) you win.

my map is different because I follow historic areas (macher lordships), because I follow historic dividing of England, because I try to follow historic relations... if you leave Anglo Saxon England and do map from later era you ignore historic reality with dividing England as you have now. so sorry but your map still has a little with Medieaval England...

so London will be valid for Eastern region and also for all England? make another castle for East region.

Bombarding idea signify that if player holds London he become king and can take titles (and castles) from "unruly" Barons. but for this must be London extra castle. and I would like more to have: -1 for each castle with London, you should be king or Baron, not both...

Why? Because I've divided England the way I have? The way you told me to? because I've divided it along lines that existed before the Norman era, and have persisted to the modern era? Just because these divisions weren't created in 1066 doesn't mean they didn't exist. You can divide a modern map all sorts of ways and no-one get's on your case about every last detail. You have to realize that there's a difference between a medieval map of Britain and your medieval map of Britain.

so London will be valid for Eastern region and also for all England? make another castle for East region.

I may have to make it an un-associated territory.

I'm not adding a -1 bonus, in fact I was thinking about doing the opposite +1 for every 2 Castles held with London.

And regarding defeat conditions, No. I'm not doing that.

I told you this from gameplay view, not historic.

ok, so if you will do USA map from 20th century, will you divide it as was in 18th century?

on this we see eye to eye, I've always counted Gameplay as more important than historical accuracy.

In a sense yes. Of the states that existed back then, their borders have changed very little, the same is true of England. Regions change hands while the big denotations of East, West, North, and South, and Central, remain relatively unchanged.

and any second castle for East Anglia?

Yes.

I think if mapmaker make historic map he should care about history. some changes for gameply are fine, but you can not create regions which were not exist.

so your USA map from 20th century will have only 13 states? ofcourse you can divide "your" map as you can, but then it would has a little with reality and history... but why then you call map Medieaval Britain if it has a little with medieaval era?

EDIT: I do ones more attempt for made this map historic. try this position:

TBK.
Is this the current large version as it is different from the one in the first post?

Over the size issue.
The large version is fine at this size but will need some rearranging so there is not one wasted pixel in site. So crop the left and right up to the land. Think about reducing some of the territ sizes. Mainly in the north where the counties are large.

The small version, and this is where you will need to use some of that creative thinking. When I say creative thinking, you can try to think about some things.
Lose a territ or two if needed.
Resize and reshape all territs to fit the new size.
Text, although it is nice to have a map that is identical to the large map, that has now been overruled.
The current guidelines for this are 630/600, this you already know. You can use some extra (50 more only) and only if you really need to. If you find the need to go larger, then you need to PM nobodies for that permission. But I will say that if he can find a way to do it, you will not get it. Might be an idea to think about the small map now and how you will get it all in.

I know this is not what you want to hear, but it is what I have to get you to do.

Just seen this map, think it could be great to play Bison King. And many thanks to yourself and Oneyed on the effort to get the history of England so accurate.

I believe Cumbria was pretty much under Northumbrian rule by 700, in reality if not by name. Cornwall is trickier, they had a king till around 900 I think. But Wessex's influence was strong. I don't think that any map set after 900 would be taking a big liberty by including Cumbria in a Northumbria region and Cornwall in Wessex for gameplay reasons. I would question Windor as a castle though if it's going to be Anglo Saxon? It's right next to London in reality and was only first there after 1066.

MY GOD I will change the name back to Feudal England if only to get you to shut up about what is "medieval" enough for you.

THAT BEING SAID, I like that map you posted and if I continue with this idea I'll be sure to take it into consideration.

It wasn't me! It was the one-eyed man! trollolol..

WTF? who are you and what is this supposed to mean?

The small version, and this is where you will need to use some of that creative thinking. When I say creative thinking, you can try to think about some things.

I know this is not what you want to hear, but it is what I have to get you to do.

You're right this isn't what I want to hear and I know that you know how I feel about this but I will reiterate for the sake of those who were not part of that conversation.

Allowing super-sized maps but restricting their small versions to the standard 630x600 is the absolute stupidest policy ever. It completely negates any sort of benefit to having a super-sized map. It effectively makes super-sizing completely and utterly pointless.

I seriously can not over emphasize what a F*cking stupid policy that is.

I'm probably not going to continue working on this idea because I'm sick and tired of foundry bullshit. What was the point of opening up that foundry re-organization sub-forum if you aren't going to listen to us???? I'm sick of it. You guys are constantly in a state of making bad decisions.

I do really like this idea so I might try and cram it into 630x600 if I can add the +50 but even then I don't know. Permitting I can get it to fit it's still a toss up whether or not I'll have the drive to wade through the bullshit of getting this finished.

Just seen this map, think it could be great to play Bison King. And many thanks to yourself and Oneyed on the effort to get the history of England so accurate.

I would question Windor as a castle though if it's going to be Anglo Saxon? It's right next to London in reality and was only first there after 1066.

Thank you, but we are going the Norman direction, however I did shift Windsor a bit West. I was told it was one of the oldest castles in England so I really wanted to fit it in.

quiet like this map, wouldnt mind having it a bit smaller but really like the bonus system, think it could be a good game to play :)

Bless you're heart.

TBK, I understand your feelings, believe me I do, but it might be wise to see if you can fit it all in the small map first then go large. Draw it without the graphics, make it as small as possible then we can see where to go from there. Add the 88s and names. It does not need to be identical as the large, just the same game play.

Lets see where TBK takes this. Medieval, Norman, prehistoric, modern, alien landings, who knows, it may even have Saxons or Romans in it at the end. As long as it has bitching gameplay, I am happy. Leave all of the history to history buffs,
game sites should make games that are fun. ;)
