Indeed, that is somewhat problematic--I was attacking one when I thought I was actually attacking the other! But some of it comes down to reading the map better--but of course, if there is an alternate name...that'd be nice too. ;)

The difference in a name by an extra 'a' isn't enough in my view... I misforted there the other day - I'm just glad it was unlimited forts.

I've accidentally autoattacked a heavily defended Shaanxi, instead of Shanxi... That really got me annoyed, I can tell you...

I've calmed down now, apologised to people in the game for making stupid mistakes, and vowed to pay more attention in future.

Yea, the similar names are starting to piss me off on this map. On top of the ones already mentioned, there is also Jiangsu and Jiangxi.

I'm well aware that I can be more careful... but I shouldn't have to look that closely just to make a turn.

edit: In the game I just lost because of a misdeploy, the game creator said he chose the map because of the similar names in order to get opponents to do exactly what I did.

It might be worthwhile to re-evaluate some of the names for the map, wisse.

Alternatively - it could be a simple XML change that could do it...

I.e. append the Continent name to the end of the territories.

I think there's something wrong with the China map because right now I'm playing on it, and before anyone even started their first turn, the amount of neutral armies in Shandong is 2.

That is the way the map starts. Check the XML

Hello-
Does the arrow from Gansu to Nei Mongol (across the Great Wall) mean that it's a one-way attack?

Hi guys, long time no see :)
I was just checking the site since two years or so, and find a lot of rants about shanxi and shaanxi being to similar on the map.
So I thought just a small edit could fix this problem. So I did change Shanxi to Shanxi (Beijing) and Shaanxi to Shaanxi (Lanzhou).
As I previously said I haven't been here for so long, so I don't know if there was already something else changed in the xml (I used the xml from my first post) so correct me if I used the wrong xml.
If this wasn't needed please tell me :) If you think there are other things left undone you can also tell me and I see if I can fix them. I have everything on my computer (not sure about the fonts though).
Here is the new xml:
http://dc139.2shared.com/download/9491973/49d4c104/ChinaV12.xml?tsid=20091127-115645-e228b8bf
If that link doesn't work:
http://www.2shared.com/file/9491973/49d4c104/ChinaV12.html

Edit: fine seems like no-one cares anymore, you can always mail me at wisse6@hotmail.com
