each region (continent) have one or none airport, except Cantenbury and Otago. they have two airports.
Cantenbury is the largest region so two airports here are fine. by I can not see any reason why Otago could has two airports (and neither why two whitesones). what about to take white airport from Queenstown to west coast? maybe add it to Milford Sound (Southland is the second largest region, so would has also two airports).

the north island has 33 regions and 5 black airports, the south island has 39 regions and 4 black airports. maybe add one black airport to Karamia?

Oneyed

I can remove the white airport from Dunedin for Otago, but definitely not Queenstown, and west coast can only have black plane.
And Milford is also out of the question since it is surrounded by very steep mountains.

I can ads a black plane to Nelson, but not Karamia.


I like it and cant see any problems. just what about this?

Could you, maybe, try having an objective to also win the game? Spice up the game play a little. Everything else looks good.

Nola_Lifer, thanks for your suggestion...but i'd prefer to keep this one simple gameplay.
I think the tikis and the planes would be enough.
What do others think?

I agree with you -- an objective would be gilding the lily.

Version 9.

1. Plane sorted on Nelson.
2. changes to the border - i wanted to create that famous NZ tattoo look for the border...so i incorporated the silver fern and the existing border into my own design - subtle and the corners are yet to be done.

I'm not particularly fond of the borders you've had so far, but I don't have any better suggestions so I'll just remain mostly indifferent since it is a non-gameplay or gameplay-graphic issue, though I will mention that I think any border can probably be made softer or more transparent, so it looks less like a hard border.

Keep up the good work.

I like it! You haven't added impassables to the legend yet though, I assume mountains and rivers are impassable but it needs to be squeezed in somewhere. Don't think I've ever seen a map with as many mountains as this one, gives it a nice look if you ask me!

No need to add them. Only Frodo will try to cross them ;)
