Small change to game plan on advice from DiM....bridge will not start as neutral....there will be a bonus for the bridge probably with some other territory.

Sorry for the misunderstanding I think tim02....when i said all the graphics are 'Up for grabs' I meant that they are all going to be altered, and have much work to be done one them. :)

isn't every map's objective to conquer the entire map? I don't see the need to express that here. (I do realize that objectives will be (or maybe are currently?) part of the XML capabilities).

well yes and no edbeard.
apparently on my battle for australia, because of the layout of the neutrals, one can finish a game without taking all the terts.
Also there is a new xml feature which if implemented will require only certain terrritories to be claimed and you've won the map (from my understanding)
I did have conquering the bridge there originally but changed it after this was brought ot my attention, so for now it's conquer the entire map.

well, there can be neutrals in any game honestly. Uneven number of territories divided by players, or a 1v1 game. anytime you eliminate someone with neutrals still around, you win. I just don't see the point of adding that bit of text, when every other map works the same way.

I just think that describing objectives should be left for the maps when there is a unique objective. Like we both said, there is or will be an XML feature for this, so those maps need to detail the objective. This is just like any other map to my understanding, so there is no reason I can see as to why it is needed. But, it's your map and if you think it works.

Well as i said its only there because it replaced some thing else.
I really can't see why it's such a bug bear at this stage...after all this is only V1 of this idea.

hulmey...hi...actually the terts are made from outlines of dead soldiers so that answer is yes.

Ps..would love to see this theme on more of the military back ground side of things!!

Care to elaborate here (very clearly)....i'm open to suggestions at this stage before i take it any further.
