Just a question and a comment.

Is Split-Dalmatia connected to Dubrovnik, or is it a pocket? There is no visible border between the two, so i'd expect it to be a pocket, but just because the two countries are so close on the map, and because they are both part of the same bonus, you might want to connect them.

I was thinking the Slovenia bonus seemed a touch high. If someone also held Primorje-Gorski, that would make it into the classic South America bonus (2 entrances, 4 terits) except you would be getting 3 instead of 2 armies. It is also seperated from the other small bonuses where the other people would start out by a fairly large stretch of land, so it is even less likely to be attacked.

Good job though! It looks like a fun, simple map.

They're connected via Adriatic Sea, but not directly.

Slovenia was given an extra army to compensate for it having poor expansion options. Although one could argue that it now has better options, like grabbing Zagreb or going for the Port bonus. Maybe I'll change it to 2.

Ok I changed Slovenia to 2 and Serbia to 5 (since it has one less border now).

Also I think the capitals will start with 4 troops. 5 seems like it would limit you in the area of the capital you get in the drop, so I figure 4 will work better.

The second colour pallet fits the theme nicely with a little dark undertone. Croatia only becomes a little hard to distinguish with the colour gradient and army circles.

The capitals are not CC capitals anymore. Maybe name them city's? Also a tower from an old wall could fit instead of the stars.

There's no such thing as "CC capitals"... ie. "Capital" is not a reserved CC term so it can be used as the mapmaker wants.

Stars are common symbols for capitals on maps. Anyway I'll look more into this in graphics.

Anyway I tend to agree about the colours. The second palette does fit the style, but I wonder if it's a bit too drab... perhaps if I swap Slovenia with Montenegro, to give a more even spread of saturation...

I must say, I like all of the changes made thus far. That being said, I'm still not sold on the capitals concept, though I like the idea of each player starting with one.

Ok I added a bridge to dubrovnik. Decided it's best to connect it to rest of Croatia.

You don't need that bridge there because you have the ports making the connection. Or did you forget about them in your old age? :lol:
