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.

Seriously... I call to the mods, can I revise the graphics and take out the water and instead fill with the tan sandy "dead" area?

Thank you mbs. I removed the water and just made Mexico a dead region (no offense to Mexicans)

Fantius wrote: The last sentence of the first paragraph on the map should read as follows:The area worst hit became known as the "Dust Bowl." Correct English is always nice.
Also, thanks & fixed on both maps. Originally it was "The worst hit area" now it's "The area worst hit".

ok good argument but i think it could be a bit lighter to fit more with the rest, and you already have a super thick border there to seperate countries

Fixed the mini-map as well.

I would prefer the Mexican dead area to be the darker shade.
