Sorry I've not given this any attention for the past two weeks, but I promise to get back to it. These are the changes I'd made before I went on vacation two weeks ago... each Great City has its own unique pyramid (based on the actual existing structures) which will also house the army counts. The other terits will haveno army circles, though tribute cities will have the little guys carrying packs - from the Mayan calendar used in the title.

Still somuch to do - this is still early stages!

id agree with prophet... the mountains really stick out compared to the whole thing, maybe dim them a little. otherwise it looks good.

also, i dont understand what you mean by saying the other territs wont have army circles... care to explain?

The thing that bugs me is that the entire left side can be held by two countries.

It's more dramatic if you say the whole right side can be held by two, as the right side is much bigger. :wink:

I'm sure we could add a route or something to combat this?

It's all up for discussion at this point, since the locations of the borders are arbitrary... I could easily drop the unpassable between Comalcaclo and Remojadas, which would eliminate the bottleneck.

edit: on second thought, dropping that river won't change the bottleneck. Working on it.

Is there any way you could add some more color to this? Right now I like the gameplay, but the graphics seem to appear somewhat....lacking

Tlaloc was for the altiplane communities, but for the Mayans Chaak was the big man :wink: .

You can see a lot of Chaak inscrpitions around all the Uxmal, Ek-Balam and Chichen Itza pyramids and temples.

Postby babinecz on Wed Jun 11, 2008 12:03 am

well, no, it depends on what period...a lot of Old God (wrinkled face), thus Tlaloc references are found throughout the Southern highlands and hachas, palmas, horizontally tenoned ballgame heads, etc. Chaak was more of a Toltec influence in the post classic. Kulkukahn being the the Quetzalcoatl influence from Teotihuacan hegemony in the mid-classic as well had a huge religious relevance as well. Same with Ehauchal (sp?) or something along those lines, the wind god, i know that much, and the Maize God, Han Huanaphu I think, was directly correlated with Late Classic sacrifice in the Peten and Chixoy region. Point is, there are tons of gods you could make and interesting sub-realm for in the map

2012 is near. High time to revive this map and get it into production before the world ends!

I can't be the only one who would really love to see this map, although a little more green added to the map would be nice.

So Oaktown, or someone else pick up this map please.

The bonus system is probably impossible to code, there's too many combinations of neighbouring cities...

Oh wait, I misread that. Scratch that, I was wrong again.

Yeah, it might be interesting. I'll have to consider this. Also Oaktown would have to be ok with it...

easy to code, take the big city as a requirement along with a continent consisting of 'any X of [all of the neighbouring smaller cities]' and you're done.
