And it'll elicit a lot of "wth is that?", even from 90% of Californians. If we're shooting for accuracy, of course, the area should probably be called Army's Playground, Methland, or Hell's Front Porch.


LOL at Methland.

Fort Irwin would be ideal. Or China Lake.

Cascades would be a better descriptor for the neighboring territory than Mt. Shasta: describes the whole region rather than just one mountain that doesn't really dominate the area.


Modoc sounds good, we can do that. I can do Cascades but I heard there are tribes of hippies that worship Mt. Shasta as a god. I thought that was really neat so I wanted to include Shasta as a territory.

Ok here's the (hopefully) final name changes

Jackson=San Andreas
Lassen=Modoc

I rearranged the type in San Andreas Victor so you are going to need to change the coordinate in that territory in the XML. Oh, and also Sacramento. I moved the city star down a little bit too,

Dang, alright. The computer with the file on it is in the shop for the weekend. I should have it back by Monday afternoon-evening if all goes well.

I like that "Zzyzx" was invented in a blatant attempt to be alphabetically last.

Don't forget to change "Napa Valley" (in gray) to "Santa Rosa" at the top (Northern Coast boundary) on the Bay Area inset map.

Save it as a png file and you colors won't change. ;)
