True indeed. It's a placeholder. We're still working on the key and trying to decide how the train system should work. Even what's here still needs work. We really just wanted to get something posted asap since we saw a recent thread about the NYC map and wanted to stake a claim. We'll put more up once we're ready.
As for the other threads, We've read them.
cowshrptrn's had king kong in it and it got panned the minute it got posted and didn't value manhattan enough.
seamusmacdeath's included jersey and didn't value mahattan enough and i think he was still planning on getting photoshop when he left off.
yourmomsaccount's was more a tri-state area map rather than a NYC map.
KingWaffles was working off the same image from wikipedia as cowshrptrn) his last post regarding this map was
http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewto ... ht=#429806
was in May and his last post ever was also in May as was his last game. And he included Jersey.
D.IsleRealBrown had also posted that same map from wikipedia... I think he was just suggesting someone make it off of that layout.
I hope this helps understand where we're coming from.
