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.

The quote off to the right doesn't have a begining quotation mark.

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 ;-)


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.

ok now i think its already right, but i have a slight feeling looking at the many maps, that yueh-shi is yueh sui and yueh-sui is jianti. not 100% sure, ill look into it in a bit.
