Ah - the XML check thread is there so we know when the xml is ready, and to enable us to make sure it validates correctly with borders etc. The check raised some concerns about centering, and we don;t need to re-check the actual xml itself (just the coords)... I shall grab something to eat and then pay some attention to what's going on here ;-)

          Beta - Quenching

---The Final Forge period has concluded for the Thailand Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Beta Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for BETA Play. After an extended period of time in BETA and once all quirks and issues have been resolved, the map will be put into Full Play (barring any Lack vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

              Image


While the map is in BETA Play, there are a couple of administrative tasks that are required of the mapmaker(s) in addition to the initial gameplay testing:
    1. Please ensure that the first post of the thread contains all the necessary information to help future visitors to the development thread; it's particularly important to ensure the most recent images are there, along with any helpful guides (such as gameplay quirks/nuances or the location/size of any starting neutrals etc.)
    2. Please update the Map Information Portal with details of your map
    3. Finally, it is the responsibility of the mapmaker(s) to ensure that they respond to further feedback in a timely and constructive manner.

Excellent, congrats!!

Just started a game, 8 player, standard-Escalating: #8644008


Minor suggestion: I would rename 'HTMS Chakri Narubet' to 'Royal Thai Navy' or similar. Most people would have no idea where to look for that territory, but if you name it somehting with 'navy' or 'fleet' or whatever in the name then people know to look in the blue stuff. ;)

For the same reason I would not use the Thai name for the regions (Phak Nuea, Phak Klang, etc.), that makes it harder to see which regions they relate to. So I'd go just with the English translation of those: North, North-East, Central, South. You're already using 'West' And East' for the remaining regions instead of the Thai names for those.

Can't wait to actually play the game.. Anyone want to join #8644008 ?

Why are the airport territories one way attacking? Phuket can attack Bangkok but not Chiang Mai?

I understand this reasoning for the boat connections but I don't get the logic in not connecting all the airports.

Actually the main reason why we had the airports in both CM & Phuket connect to BKK is because 1) i would say about at least 95% of flights from CM to Phuket or from Phuket to CM actually do connect to BKK first and 2) To show the dominance of Bangkok for what it really is... BKK runs Thailand and that is that, the next largest city in Thailand is Chiang Mai (Thats where i live) and it cannot even measure to the influence BKK has on Thailand.
But gameplay wise, i haven't heard anyone complain about this actually destroying their games so i would say just lets see how it goes thru this BETA phase and if there are more people with issues maybe then it could be changed.

Its called the HTMS.. Its the only Thai navy ship Thailand has i believe... it is called what it is called, look at pearl harbor, i am not very good with the names of all the boats but sometimes you just have to take a second and look where the terts are... just my opinion..

For the same reason I would not use the Thai name for the regions (Phak Nuea, Phak Klang, etc.), that makes it harder to see which regions they relate to. So I'd go just with the English translation of those: North, North-East, Central, South. You're already using 'West' And East' for the remaining regions instead of the Thai names for those.

First we went with just the NE, CENTRAL, SOUTH like what you said above, then FD and others wanted it to have more of a "Thai" feel for the names in the key and that is when we made the switch.. the main reason if i remember why we didn't have the for east & west is because both are kind of long in Thai... Phak Tawaandok and Phak Tawaanook.. spelling is prob not correct i am just sounding the word out in my head but they are kinda long... maybe wait for FD to comment on this one

That is a fair answer...esp if it adds to realism of the map. It hasn't ruined my strategy, just messed up my first round drop lol. Maybe just make it a little more clear on the map that the attacks only go one way?

This is an issue we need to resolve as other players have told me they didn't realize the ship was necessary as well.

I'd prefer to retain the name "HTMS Chakri Naruebet", as it is also a shoutout to the reigning Chakri dynasty for which it was named. It is also perhaps the only SE Asian nation to have an aircraft carrier, so it's appropriate to showcase this in a military conquest game.

I think we should resolve this by adding a ship icon to the legend that would make it clear that you need to hold the ship.

As griff said, it was discussed already to use Thai names because otherwise it is kind of boring. For East and West we use English as the Thai names are too long and only 1 letter difference would make it easy to confuse.

I think actually every flight from Chiang Mai to Phuket goes through Bangkok. I think almost every domestic flight in Thailand goes to Bangkok. One exception is Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son.

I think the legend is clear on aiport and boat connectivity. One way to possibly make it more clear would be to add two-way directional arrows on the connecting lines in the legend. However, I'm not sure it's really necessary.

I think it would be nice to add ประเทศ ไทย somewhere on the map. Either near title or somehow covering the whole map in big font.

BKK runs Thailand and that is that, the next largest city in Thailand is Chiang Mai (Thats where i live) and it cannot even measure to the influence BKK has on Thailand.
But gameplay wise, i haven't heard anyone complain about this actually destroying their games so i would say just lets see how it goes thru this BETA phase and if there are more people with issues maybe then it could be changed.


That is a fair answer...esp if it adds to realism of the map. It hasn't ruined my strategy, just messed up my first round drop lol. Maybe just make it a little more clear on the map that the attacks only go one way?



CM----BKK----PHUKET

pretty clear i think
Perhaps to you, but I also had some trouble at first glance thats what you meant with it. I like FD's idea of 2-way directional arrows to ensure clarity, tho I can't really think of any other means of doing so.

NOTES:

-Add ประเทศ ไทย (Thailand in Thai) to the map

-Add 2 way directional arrows in the key for the airports

-Add a boat icon in the key for the HTMS

Issues that needed to be addressed... before i change any of these i would like more input, i don't want to change them only to go back to what we had.

Is there room to put the "(BKK)" into the Airport Connections legend on the small map, as it is on the large map?
