You may need to change your continents...

Anything that was written <component> is now <territory>

Note you can also use <continent> in your components if your logic needs it!!

Is the below revised code correct? Should It be territories or territorys or remain components?

Code changed from:
Code: Select all
   <continent>
      <name>Nebraska</name>
      <bonus>2</bonus>
      <components>
         <component>North Platte</component>
         <component>Norfolk</component>
         <component>Imperial</component>
         <component>Lincoln</component>
         
      </components>
   </continent>


To now...

Code: Select all
   <continent>
      <name>Nebraska</name>
      <bonus>2</bonus>
      <territorys>
         <territory>North Platte</territory>
         <territory>Norfolk</territory>
         <territory>Imperial</territory>
         <territory>Lincoln</territory>
         
      </territorys>
   </continent>
   <continent>


If that is not correct, let me know. Thanks all.

no ocean south of las cruces

Postby mbs on Fri Jan 25, 2008 5:35 pm

not sure if anyone else mentioned this... but:

the only thing i can see wrong with DUST BOWL is that there's no big body of water south of las cruces like what is depicted. it's just mexico down there...

You have a point, but I don't think it's supposed to water. Probably just dead space.

It's still a valid point even my assertion is true, because it does at least look like water.

its no secret that i really like this map. But from experience in a game im currently playing:

http://www.conquerclub.com/game.php?game=1645523

the texas bonus needs to be increased to +7

its currently in effect the same as oaklahoma as texas in reality is +6-3 = 3, oaklahoma is 5-2 = 3 sorry i never flagged this sooner but until it happened to me i never really thought of it

to reward anybody (insane enough) to go for texas it really needs to go from a +6 to a +7 making it a net +4

i know the -1s don't come into effect if you have only 1 man on the terrs but in reality most players would have additional men on these terrs to protect their bonus
Don't now why people on here don't like being cooks, remember under siege: A former SEAL, now cook, is the only person who can stop a gang of terrorists when they sieze control of a US Navy battleship.

I hear you rebelman, but I've played a few games where someone started in texas, built his army, took texas and kept it. Built the army and moved straight up. I think you have a valid point, but before a change in bonus is needed, lets wait for any other comments.

edit..
btw, I'm in that game link you posted ;) and I'm taking Oklahoma next round

i know you are (and I have been doomed since the start )thanks for the invite and i totally agree a change like i am suggesting should only happen if there is significant support (i could be the lone voice fighting the lone star fight :D )

You know nobody else mentioned this the entire thread. I'm not sure why, except that people probably expected a huge detail like that not to be wrong. Now it bothers me. I may want to "revamp" this map and take the water out.
