MRS: Shouldn't it be two colors since its from two different lines?

HAM, SPG and ISL: These stations seem to be missing posts? on either end of where the armies numbers are placed.

Also the red area ive circles i seem is empty a could use a little something to fill it up :wink:

EDIT: SPG's font isn't bolded :)


Gimil...oh my...i'm not doing very well am I? :cry:

Anyway, in the image above (refresh your browser) i've fixed those circles issues with the exception of the Ukraine area, would you like to see another station in there? or perhaps an image.

I am going to pull all the tert names into a layer and get them all the same in the next version.

Thanks. :)


The Ukraine area isn't really a big concern just think it would be niev to have a little something there. A station might work. But to be honset im not to bothered :D

OK...I've found LVUV and ODESSA for that area, but I'll have to reconfigure the rail lines to include Budapest. That will fill that area nicely and the Urkraine will become a large continent.

review time!!

I will work via the bonusses

Brabant Express:
4 terr, 3 def, 9 cont => Bonus of 4, make it 4, more then enough for a 4 terr continent with 3 to defend stations. (1.0)
change name to "Benelux Express" (1.1)

Baltic Express:
3 terr, 3 def, 5 cont => Bonus of 3, thus good
Station "SPG", its name in't bolded as everyone elses. (2.0)

Nord Express:
5 terr, 4 def, 10 cont => Bonus of 5, thus good
Station "KLG", its top with clock is different from the other 1 station, 1 line stations, as in you keep the arc in gray and here not (3.0)

Vilnius Express:
3 terr, 2 def, 4 cont => Bonus of 3, but I like your 2, more appropiate, thus fine
Station "VIL" has the same as adressed in 3.0, look at "MIN" next to it how I mean I like it (4.0)

British Rail:
4 terr, 1 def, 2 cont => Bonus of 2, thus good
I can't but wonder that "GLW" station is wider in size then "EDB" or is it my eyes?

Trentitalia:
5 terr, 3 def, 2 cont => Bonus of 3, but I agree with 2, thus fine
station "CBA" and "BSI" don't have that nifty color in there top as the rest of the 1 station, 1 line stations (5.0)
the name of "FLN" is slighty off to the left (5.1)

Orient Exp 1919:
7 terr, 6 def, 8 cont => Bonus of 7, I say 7 is more then fine for that railway (6.0)

Sim Orient Exp 1921:
9 terr, 9 def, 10 cont => Bonus of 10, I say atleast a bonus of 9 (7.0)

Ven-Sim Orient Exp:
6 terr, 6 def, 8 cont => Bonus of 7, I agree, this will be a fought over railway

Train Grande Vitesse:
4 terr, 4 def, 9 cont => Bonus of 5 but I say make it a bonus of 3! yes 3, explaination is at the bottom of post (8.0)

Rail Iberia:
7 terr, 2 def, 1 cont => Bonus of 3, seems failrly nice

EuroCity 174-175:
terr 4, def 4, cont 5 => Bonus of 4, thus good
"PRG" station, you switch colors between the color behind the name and on the sides. (9.0)

Scandanavian Rail:
7 terr, 2 def, 3 cont => Bonus of 3, but I agree on the 2
"HAM" station doesn't has the color of Scandanavian Rail behinds its name (10.0)

Trans Europe Exp:
7 terr, 6 def, 10 cont => Bonus of 7, thus good

Ukraine Express:
6 terr, 4 def, 5 cont => Bonus of 5, thus good

Iceberg Express:
5 terr, 5 def, 8 cont => Bonus of 6, thus good
Why on earth is it called "Iceberg Express"? it links London (LON) - Brussels (BRU) - Keulen (KLN) - Luzern? (LUS) - Paris (PAR), thus why not calling it the Thalys or if a more wider term, HST as in "High Speed Trains" which run between those city's



(8.0): if you hold the TGV's Paris station and NCE station, you have both TGV + Rail Iberia, thus don't overgo on the bonus of those 2, hends I wish TGV = 3

That looks better :)

is there any plans for the rail routes them self?

Im not a fan on the 1px line :wink:

EDIT: Also i think taking out the land that over laps the legends is a must do :)

ANOTHER EDIT: alternatively you could take out the blank section of the legends and work the land round that.

shall overlook the bonusses later but I can tell ou this:

"HSL" naùme isn't centralized, neither is all the Scandanavian ones, "HAM" still misses the 3rd color, "KEV" station has some problems of name centralisations and falling clockwork. "VIE" - "BUD" - "BGD" - "BUC" - "SOF" also suffer from what I know think a layer shifting (correct?)

than again, I note a couple of tings I said not changed/commented/or even argued, so meh

GIMIL...I apologise before I say this :wink: but

DON'T YOU GUYS & GALS READ ANY OF THE POSTS THAT I PUT ON HERE OR DO I JUST DO OT FOR THE FUN OF IT TO WASTE MY TIME AND NOT PROVIDE INFORMATION ON WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE MAP...FOR ABOUT THE THIRD OR FOURTH TIME

WM IS DOING SOME LINES LATER WHEN EVERYTHING IS IN PLACE.

Now, back to other business. i think the land over the bonus is a nice design feature, so i will probably leave it there. :)

onbekende...please refresh your browser, as these irritations have been amended in V6 Large above.

I will attend to all your issues in your review when you re-examine the bonuses and do an edit on the latest version. :)
