What I like about this map

Everything! I love this map. It's my favorite map on the site. The graphics are simple, but attractive. The bonuses are small but there is a LOT of them for the taking. It has the right number of airports to cause havoc to those who don't realize their strength, but not to many to be the cause of chaos. It's rules and bonus's are easy to understand yet leave plenty of room for strategy. Awesome map! My thanks to whoever created and implemented it.

What I don't like about this map

Nothing really. If I had to make a suggestion, it would be to limit the number of troops per turn that could move from one airport to another. And I'm not even certain I would suggest it. Outside of that, it's perfect, I love it.

isaiah40, if you can, I think you should post there and explain your reasons and all the "unsaid things"
I tried but i think nothing would be better than a mapmaker's reply.

thanks

I think it could work quite well as one. With this map "USA 2.1" staying an 8 player map.

=D13=

I wonder if this suggestion could be brought to the light of day.

A simple graphics improvement could be to put a picture in the background?

It would fit the style of the other USA maps, eg:

It obviously has to be quite faded and in just the right place to not make the map look more cluttered, but it should make it look more appealing and less clinical?

So I do! Unfortunately since I have recently had both my backup and laptop hard drives crash, I have lost all my map files, so this won't be fixed any time soon!
