My eyes see things all the time :lol:

Anyway, for the xml check, can you please post a version that has all the intended starting neutrals, and starting positions if any? Not from the xml, but those intended by the mapmaker.

While i appreciate Gilligan did that, i think if you check the first page you'll find one there also :idea:

For now, I'm asking all mapmakers / xml writers to post an image with neutrals/start positions just to be sure to have the latest version. In the future, these will be required to be posted in the xml checks thread along with the xml & map images.

This is to ensure the XML will be properly checked and no mistakes such as people starting with bonuses will slip through, so your co-operation will be appreciated. Thanks.

So as far as i am concerned just because you are checking xmls behind the scenes, and if there has been no official announcement of you being the new xml CA, then i don't think you have any right to either request or demand anything of the sort to be done, since to my perception, you are only still a mapmaker. I'm sorry natty, but come down off that high horse of yours otherwise we will continue to clash severely...you are not the law around here...yet!

I'm sorry you feel that way cairnswk, perhaps you'd like for someone else to check your XML:s? I can ask if that can be arranged, I'm sure someone else will get to it eventually...

I'm sorry you feel that I'm on a "high horse", but when I request an image with neutrals from you, it's done for your benefit, not to spite you. If you have a problem with it, or if my word is not good enough for you, you can take it up with thenobodies80.

natty, i have no problems providing you with an image or anyone else on my team providing you with an image if it is done is a manner that appears as a simple request and not something in the somewhat "demanding" vain as was put in this:

For now, I'm asking all mapmakers / xml writers to post an image with neutrals/start positions just to be sure to have the latest version. In the future, these will be required to be posted in the xml checks thread along with the xml & map images.

This is to ensure the XML will be properly checked and no mistakes such as people starting with bonuses will slip through, so your co-operation will be appreciated. Thanks.


Also, i'd like to know why no announcement was made about you checking xmls, which again i have no problems with if there is a need for such to be done.
However, it appears as though, like the double standards that are/have been applied to the behind-the-scenes maps (which you are totally against because of unfair advantage and so-called eliteism, which i agree with) there is double standards occuring here because once again, the foundry has not been kept informed via an annoucement of what is going on with the CAs.
You see, i can only respect "officialdom" when it is publicly announced and not executed like the "ole boys club' behind the scenes.
I am surprised at you, for being in favour of non-double standards in one area, and yet applying double standard (intentional or not) in another. A little humility goes a long way natty.
In fact, this little tidbit from you elsewhere could very well be applied here...
rather than trying to browbeat the mapmaker into obedience.

My fault here since i never wrote an announcement for natty as xml checker.
For now cairnswk, I apologize for not letting you (and others foundry goers) know about it.....not trying to find an excuse, but lately my life has been a bit a mess.

I'll check my to-do list during this weekend. ;)

Quick thing... on George Jacobs Sn., is the Sn. short for Senior?

If so, isn't it usually abbreviated as Sr. ?

Yes you are correct, natty. Good pick-up. :)
Funny how you can write something one way all your life and nobody says it's wrong.
I'd always thought Sr. was the abbrevioation for Sir or Sister (as in nun)..
Oh well. Adjusted in images above.

You're right, Sr. can be used as the abbreviation for Sister. Similarly, Fr. for Father, and Br. for Brother. But I doubt Mr. has ever been used for Mother. :lol:

I also doubt anyone has ever needed to abbreviate Sir. ;)

Question.

In the xml, you have starting positions coded, with a max. of 1 starting position per player. But since the underlying territories of the starting positions aren't coded as neutrals*, it means that after each player gets 1 starting position, the rest of the territories in the rest of the starting positions are divided among the players randomly.

Is this intentional?

* - in fact, it seems that some territories are coded as neutrals, and some territories are not...

That was me screwing up - I forgot to code them as neutrals.
