I'm pretty sure that you're allowed to change anything you want - you can even revoke the right for it to be on the site?

Widowmakers did it with a bunch of his maps at one point. You should be able to just send the new image to lack.

Adjustments:

mbs wrote: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...
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.

And while I'm revamping, Does anyone else have an issue with this southern border?

I don't know if it's too late, or if it's been covered already ( I haven't read all 35 pages of comments on this one), but I thought I'd bring this up.

If I own all of New Mexico, I get a +4 bonus. Since I also own some Dust Bowl cities, I get -1 for Clayton and -1 for Logan. Therefore owning New Mexico is good for a net +2?

This means the bonus chart nets out to:
New Mexico +2
Texas +3
Oklahoma +3
Kansas +2
Colorado +2
Nebraska +1

Just checking...

Yep...

Of course - if you only have 1 on the drought regions - you won't lose 1...

- although you will be easily broken!

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.

Issue

Postby erikiscool on Tue Feb 05, 2008 3:59 pm

I have a problem with people purposely missing turns to
avoid the dustbowl penalty and then ending up with
multiplied armies for the rounds they missed.

No they don't - this is a valid point - but I don't know what could be done to solve... shy of missed turn processing automagically running the autodeploy code... also - that would occur for "killer neutrals" too?!

In fact - I've raised it in the suggs & Bugs...

Dalhart Misspelled

Postby redjohnny on Wed Feb 06, 2008 11:59 am

I just wanted to point out a misspelling in the Dust Bowl map. Dalhart, TX is spelled wrong. Whoever created the map spelled it Dallhart. It is actually Dalhart.

Thank you.
Since the revised maps haven't been updated yet, I'll fix the spelling and repost (both XML and Large / Small Maps).
