Don't worry about graphics now. Make the map fun to play (borders, bonus, territory count). Once all of that is agreed upon, then make the map look good.

No point in making a good looking map when you need to change it every 5 days to fix a little gameplay issue.

I would make a current map with all of your borders and bonuses. That way people can see everything all at once.

more lochs!

http://www.scotlandthemovie.com/movies/flochalsh.html

maybe you can even use them to split the huge Inverness?

and even if they have no effect on gameplay they should still be there visually

and better/more detailed borders would be nice, but I guess you plan to do that later..

Compared to maps that have made it to finalforge they are still a bit uneven but you are going in the right direction.

I prefer them more thin as well but that´s just a personal opinion.. they are in a separate layer,right?

Postby jennifermarie on Sun Jul 08, 2007 8:56 am

the map so far is a great start. My suggestion is taht you add 2 more territories, because right now you have 34, which leaves neutrals in all game types. If you bump it up to 36, you only would have neutrals for 5 player games. You could possibly divide Inverness into 2, and then add another territory somewhere else.

Thank you :D

i think inverness and ayrshire, inverness because its too big and ayrshire because it should be split in to north and south ayrshire. I want those continents to be a little bigger than they are as well.

Does anyone think i should remove a few impassables as theres loads of territories worth 2 and 3 or does it make the gameplay more interesring?

Can anyone find a county split in inverness. it seems to be just inverness, most of the time the entire highlands is shown as just one region

To be honest I think this thread needs a new map. I quite like the idea of a Scotland map, but I just don't feel this one is up to scratch.
