The text is much more readable, but I'm finding it hard to believe that 888's will fit into the Kingdom of Shu without some text getting obstructed. Any chance of proving that, or altering the territory borders a smidge?

fyi, it is a bit confusing which armies belong to yin ping v tian shui (sp?). I think I know after looking at them very carefully. In any case the rest looks fine.

I'd still maybe tweak the color of the text in some areas. Maybe a touch darker in the two light blue areas in Wei...not sure about the dark blue. Slight touches to green and red also.

Maybe a touch darker for some. I don't really feel there is any problems with the rest of the names.

next thread, next map :D

Gimil! Nice map


Bonusses:
(I named then to there respectfull coordinates in there "super"-continent

Wei West:
3 terr, 1 def/att, 1 cont => Bonus of 1 (same, Aussie land as eac map needs he :D)

Wei Central:
9 terr, 6 def/att, 5 cont => Bonus of 7 (seeing the Wei bonus overrules the individual ones, is a bonus of 5 definatly good, so people will take the entire kingdom)

Wei East:
2 terr, 2 def/att, 1 cont => Bonus of 2 (but seeing one need these for the total one, is 1 a good bonus, making it a little aussieland)

Kingdon of Wei:
14 terr, 3 def, 2 att, 2 cont => Bonus of 2 (altered) => aka +2 on the suggested other bonuses, making it thus the given 9, which is god


Shu North:
7 terr, 4 def, 5 att, 3 cont => Bonus of 5 (but seeing only 5 for defence, I can live with a +4)

Shu South:
4 terr, 2 def/att, 2 cont => Bonus of 3 (a true South America, no need for 3, +2 is good)

Kingdom of Shu:
11 terr, 4 def, 5 att, 2 cont => Bonus of 3 (altered) => less terr, but more defence needed with a hold on blue, possibility for a +9 here


Wu West:
5 terr, 5 def/att, 5 cont => Bonus of 5 (same as you propose, can't have anything against it then he :D)

Wu East:
6 terr, 3 def/att, 2 cont => Bonus of 4 (seeing it can go into a 2 def continent, I am okay with +3)

Wu South:
5 terr, 2 def/att, 2 cont => Bonus of 3 (South America again, +2!)

Kingdom of Wu:
16 terr, 6 def/att, 2 cont => Bonus of 4 (altered) => middle place, playground of the people holding green/blue, needs its bonus, have this => got the map mostly, so why no +13 (o_O, unlucky chinese number)


Aside from bonusses who I like mostly, I very much like the way you show them!


As I could forsee, I have no comments about the map itself, I blame your uberness

Hi onbekende nice to see you about the foundry. Havent seen you in a while.

After reading your report (;)) the only thing you think should be changed are the shu kingdom bonus to a 9 and increase te total of the wu kingdom bonus to compensate for the middle group combat?

Im happy with the increase of wu to 13 but moving shu to 9 im not so happy with. It has that one way attack out and the middle ground bordering it so it more likely to be attacking than defending. So I would rather keep it at 8.

Cheers again for the review.

every person liked needs to disappear to be more liked when returning he :D

and school makes the actually reason more believable :D

mkay, as I somewhat noted Shu to 9 is not really a big need, it could intensify the taking of green by blue but its indeed not needed.


But yeah, red is the middle of the supercontinent mayham, make it valuable

I haven't had an in-depth look at this yet, but can see some similar names that will cause people problems when picking attack territories from the drop-down box:

Yeuh-Shi v Yeuh Sui
Xu Chang v Yu Zhang
Wuling v Lu-ling v Ling-ling

At the top of the Shu kingdom, there may be some confusion as to which territory the army numbers for Yin Ping and Tian Shui belong to.

That's me done for now ;-)

I (and many others) have accidentally attacked/deployed/forted to the wrong territory on the existing China map, where neighbouring territories are Shangxi and Shaangxi. In my opinion, this adversely affects gameplay, which is why I have brought it up.

the army number kind of blocks the border at yin ping so there could be confusion about which country borders the blue i think

Gimil I really like the graphics on this map. Everything seems so crisp and sharp.

The only thing that could be improved is the legibility of some of the text on those backgrounds the way I see it. The green territories are a bit hard to read and maybe even the dark blue one could be slightly improved.

Perhaps you could also play a bit around with the positioning of the army numbers. For example Jianye would fit better if the army number was put in the position above where the current text lies. Jianye could then be moved slightly down and to the left.

Apart from that you are missing an open quotation mark in your quote.

There shouldnt be two yeuh-shi's, same have I missed something? Xu Chang and Yu Xhang may cause problems. Wu ling wont cause problems since they shouldnt sit close on the drop down. THe two ling may cause a problem as well. Ill see what I can do.
