Well, i think it does work. And it's similar to the shape that other binnocular views on google images give.
Why doesn't it work for you? Please explain further Victor.

Okay, I'll try to explain this as best as I can. The picture is nice, don't get me wrong, but the over-lapping circles shape is a bit... squished. The circles aren't completely round and it therefore looks a bit strange. I also feel like the thick black outline emphasizes this, and therefore, makes it look worse. I know it's a small thing to get upset about and I don't mean to be harsh, it's just bothersome to me.

You've got a four-corner between Richmond and Hills District.

Also, do the Kyaks assault both ways, or just one way? Like, does K6 assault K5 and K7 or just K7? Or just K5?

:oops: I'll fix that next version.

The legend says: regions assault next in line via water. Also there are no arrows indicating one-ways on the map, so i would take from that assaults can occur both ways.

It's not exactly clear which bonuses go where. Is North Shore the one with Bondi and Vaucluse? Is Central Coast the one with Palm Beach? Why is the central thing north of the north thing?

Why is Manhattan south of Harlem...who knows, thats what their district names are. Same applies here.
So what you're syaing is that you can't tell the "continents" from the legend.

Why can't you put it in a size that can be read instead of mumbling under your breath.

Because I want to correct any potential misinformation without polluting the thread with irrelevant offtopicalness. But I certainly understand what you mean.

Yes, anyway...

Also some of these bonuses seem egregiously high, even to a greater degree than Sydney Metro. Can you justify giving +5 for 3 territories in National Parks, or +4 for 3 in SE Suburbs? Is there any mechanism in place to prevent those bonuses from being dropped initially?

Alas! Two fortnightly review periods have passed without any updates or meaningful engagement from the mapmaker(s),therefore the map is considered stalled. If the mapmaker wants to continue with the map, then one of the Foundry Moderators will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system, after an update has been made.

I'm wondering if there would be any "demand" for this to enable continued development to occur.
I'd like to continue working on it.
