As for the reducing of the borders, I say it'd be okay, as long as you're not compromising California's geography. And if NOT reducing the borders compromises California's geography, then definitely reduce the borders.


Well you break it up 100 different ways depending on how you justify it, What I want to know is if from a gameplay prospective 6 borders is too many.

I realize that. I'm saying either way it'd be fine from a gameplay perspective, so choose the most geographically accurate choice.

Ok for now I'm sticking with 6 borders in LA I changed the names around so that hopefully they'll be more appropriately matched, also I can rely on less abbreviations.

Believe it or not, I think the minimap is too big. It distracts from the main map IMO, since it's like 1/3 the size.

Well, I know I'm not in graphics yet but, I couldn't stand looking at that last version any longer. What do you think?

Also I did make the mini map smaller.

I recommend you start the cities neutral. Right now a 4-player is guaranteed to drop someone with the +1 bonus, and 1 in 5 will drop a +3 bonus. 1 in 7 3-player games will drop a +4 bonus.

Either way, add another territory, because 51 and 41 are both unsafe numbers -- 52 and 42 are fair.

Oh Duh! I knew that :? In fact I just added a territory in Thyseneal for exactly the same reason. yeah that seems reasonable starting the cities neutral as well. how about just 2 neutral troops on each one.

About adding a territory I think what I'll do is add 1 territory to the desert as well as increase it's border by one as well as it's worth.

:-k see I'm not sure if you were present for the conversation which established that "No Name" is the name of ghost town that I chose to exemplify the fact that that region is predominantly defined by ghost towns or if you think that it is listed as "No Name" as a place holder since I didn't have a name. Either way I have considered calling it lone Pine, it really comes down to the question; Which is more badass? I know Victor stated that he thought "No Name" is pretty bad ass. I to think it's pretty sweet. Lone Pine is also a pretty badass name, so I could still be persuaded that way.

New draft soon, I swear.

Then call it "Bad Ass". But no I missed the convo. But everything needs a name. Even cats.

What I mean is that there literally is a town named "no name" like that really is the name.

Conversation Example:

"Howdy stranger do you know hoe to get to No Name"

"Yes sir, follow yonder trail up past rattle snake ridge or 5 miles and you'll be looking right upon the old town of No Name"

"Thanks stranger, I'll be one my way then"

"Oh and stanger"

"yeah"

"When you get to No Name tell that no good son of a bitch Clansy Fisk that I'll be come for him and hells coming with me"

"will do stranger, will do"

I added a territory to the desert to sure up the numbers for a fair deploy. Since it opened up a spot as far as naming is concerned I went ahead and added Lone Pine in after all.

UGH!!!!!! I forgot to change the Mojave Deserts bonus value to +4, The file was still open and I went back and changed it but in my stupidity I saved the small over the large ](*,)

It's not devastating, all it means is that I just gave myself a lot more work to do.
