Version 12...an update

I changed the title and top frames a fraction, to give more eye-space there, just to keep this out of the bin.

Notice that the xml person is empty, so whoever wants to do this and hasn't done xml before i.e. a newbie xml person, can have the job.
This is not a complicated map for the xml process.
Please PM me with details if you want this xml job. I will also guide the person as much as possible.

Re: * Massacre à Paris [23.7.13] V12 P9 Gameplay ?

OK, there was lots of previous discussion some months back about gameplay and the visisbility of component and borders...etc

Can we make a move on finalising gameplay please?

Attached is my first draft of the XML for V12.

Unfortunately, Gilligan (our resident XML expert) has informed me that there is no such thing as conditional bonuses autodeploy (EDIT), so the doubled autodeploy is not going to happen.

Also, since you haven't yet responded to my PMs (it hasn't been that long, but I'm not the world's most patient person), I'll post my notes and questions here to be sure you see them.

Notes:
Henry de Navarre should be Henri de Navarre.
The word is "Maisons," not "Masions" - it's right in the legend, but not on the map itself.
Bottom right corner - there should be a space between the comma and the "f" in "fences."
There should be an accent on the first lowercase "e" in "Entrée."
Legend at right - there should be space between "with" and "any" in "with any Huguenot." - though this will probably be deleted anyway, since it is impossible to code with current XML.
Legend should say H16 borders H26, not H18.
Dueler C35 still has an asterisk - please remove that, since it no longer means anything.

Question:
What (if any) regions do you want to start neutral (besides the buildings and the royals)? How many neutrals should they start with? Do you want any of them to be killers?

Well you can do conditional bonuses, just not auto deploys.

OK, we'll do conditional bonus....
each dueler is still +1 autodeploy.

but the new bonus is:
Henri de Navarre with Huguenot group
or Charles IX with Catholique group
from each bonus region
doubles the bonus

Henry de Navarre should be Henri de Navarre.

Fixed.

Question:

Neutrals are thus marked on the map - even temporarily - so please beware they may change
I hadn't planned any to be killers, nor have i heard anyone argu for that.

Not sure I understand this.
You would only receive the bonus if you hold all Huguenots and all Catholiques in a given region, yes?
So simply holding Henri and all Huguenots in a region wouldn't give you anything if you didn't hold all the Catholiques in that region (0 doubled is still 0).
OR do you want Henri and all Huguenots in a region to give the bonus even if all Catholiques in the region aren't held?

OK. I've coded the neutrals into the attached XML - but they can easily be changed if/when needed.

sempai

Your first is incorrect, but your second is correct.
The optional word is OR in the statement.
So Henri de Navarre with the Huguenot group in any bonus region doubles the bonus...you do not have to hold the Catholiques also since the Catholiques are not aligned religiously with Henri de Navarre.
The opposite applies to Charles IX.
If you hold Henri de Navarre and Charles IX and all of a region, then the bonus quadruples.

This provides a good conditional strategy. You have to hold the guards, the buildings, or the royal personage and fort them very well to stop your opponent from gaining those extra bonuses.

cairns, honestly, I cannot see much wrong with this - but:

Movement between duellers is pretty well explained in the legend and I like the idea of having a map with no lines on it. But the symbols are overtly complicated IMO when you attack over borders. When you need to start adding examples in the legend, it might be time to try and have a think about a different way. When you consider that you have explained how the attacks work, why the need for the symbols at all? By adding the symbols and text, on the one hand you seem to be trying to stop any confusion, but by adding them, I feel you have added to it (I hope you understand this ;) ). By removing the symbols and examples, you have more room to expand on the picture example making that even more clear. A simple line of text saying it goes over borders as well should suffice. What is your opinion on this?

Les Bonus.
    +1 auto deploy dueller
      Do all duellers get an auto deploy?
    If I hold Henri or Charles, I double my bonus?
      So if I hold Henri and all of the green men in Port Neufue, what is my bonus? Or does the doubling or the bonus only happens when I hold the bonus (both green and yellow duellers)?
