Apologies. this mistake is in USApocalypse too. I should have mentioned that. It's a common mistake.
Thanks for the advice

While impassable may be the more standard, unpassable is still actually a word.

I should have checked a little further.
The word isn't found in most dictionaries, and seems to be a pretty new addition to the language. I'm going to say that it's a common error that has crept into usage, rather than being a full word yet. The web-sites that list it don't give sources, roots, or even a decent definition.

There's no question about its meaning, but I'd still say it's a mistake.

I'll stop being a pedant now, but I'm funny about these things. I'm looking forward to playing the map.

Just started one of your games mate. Very impressed....I like how the river seems to pass through the mountains.

Did you draw the mountains yourself?

Thanks hulmey...yes the mountains are my hand drawings....i think though you'll find that those are one-way land passes going through the mountains...the rivers (in blue) are on the edges of the mountains...sorry but kinda don't understand which ones u are looking at.

Played an RT on this yesterday with some ludicrously tough competition, and the verdict was two very enthusiastic thumbs up (especially from RL Orange). :D

I'll be very curious to see what sort of consensus emerges as far as strategy...

Well done, cairns. This is definitely one of the best new maps.

Good to hear that Incandenza...i am in the midst of several games myself...and am only just now realising the consequences of some of the attack routes that have been offered in this map...when I was checking the border connections in one of the tools....i noticed that several terts had marvellous opportunities for attacking all round them, yet others were very limited and I thought then that this would make strategising a definite need for conquering. thanks for dropping my with that post. much appreciated.

spelling error

Postby shaddowfire on Wed May 30, 2007 8:47 pm

you have "unpassable" in the lower right hand corner of the map. That my friends, is not a word. What you are trying to say is "impassable."

And yes this does bug me enough that I refuse to play the map until you fix that.

Well done Keyogi or whoever is doing it!

the map plays well, and it's fun to look at, but as a moderately color blind player I have to say that the colors absolutely suck... I have to keep the XML open to figure out which bonus region is which.

oaktown....thanks foro your input on that...much appreciated. :)
I am sorry the colours are not to your liking, but there was a large discussion on colours for this map, and everyone else appears to be happy with these colours.
As this is an important feature for you, can i suggest you keep an eye on topic in future maps in development and have your say in the foundary when development is underway. :wink: Thanks once again.
