Um, we had a little accident in Mapuches, when it's coded the inlands will be 2 and the borders 4.

how about you chnage it to "Louisania" since that was what it was called, there where only about 50 native american tribes there and none were stronge, and if you do change it to "Louisania" or "French" change the "French" to "Iroquois", where the French are on your map is where the Iroquois were in real life and the French owned the top thats not on the map.(and the landing point on your map is right but below there is where the Iroquois were)

That would break what we are trying to do though. Lets say this is earlier then Louisania.

The Souix are more western, I'd still want it to be a Native American alliance of tribes. Beyond Souix and Iroquois I'm not sure of what most people know though. I don't want to grab another abstract name like the Mapuches.

Besides, the change of movement by the French in this reality may have pushed the Iroquois west.

If gimil isn't loathe to change I'd run with that. I'm not sure how much it solves your complaint, but I do know that the Iroquois are supposed to be where we put the French which is probably frustrating you.

They are already, do you mean even brighter then? I'm not sure how that would work, guess that's a gimil level suggestion I can't help with.

Increase brightest is an easy possibility, i could also increase the outer shadow instead to help the continets stick out. If i make them to light some on the colors may not stick out.

I see something, we need to bump Aztecs 1 up by 1.

I think a drop in Aztec 3 to 3 would be fine to compensate.

Reason is a 10v10 situation pops up if Aztecs homeland rushes for Comanche homeland first turn or vice versa.

We could also bump up that dock... Docks maybe should be 4 anyways. :? Would slow a Mapuches rush for Aztecs or Comanche if we did.

I don't like rushes you know. People should be safe for at least 1 round.

EDIT: Comanche 1 should be 2 not 4.

In a two player game, couldn't the first player eliminate the other one on his first turn?

Not likely. The landing zones are auto deploy, they would each have 3, there is no telling where they would be. They wouldn't have enough territories to place more then 3 on their own. It would be like normal only 2 of the starting zones would be retarded (not getting another 3 to deploy).
