^^^ I think the Foundry Brands should be added to the top of the 1st post.

The amendments look good.

What are the names in the sea? I thought they were 'sea names', but Peninsula sounds more land-massy, and now I'm not so sure...

I know that the bonsues are tentative, but you should re-check your calculations... I think you got southern wrong, as there are four borders.

Also, in working out your bonuses, common sense trumps the calculators. Ask yourself this if there is one region you would definitely try to go for before the other one, and what would happen in the game once somebody got that region. In this case, I would go for Reykyavik, because it gets the same bonus as almost every other region but requires controlling as many as three fewer territories. I can tale that region two rounds before anybody else gets a bonus, which sets me up nicely.

Ahh - yes you're right. But you are also correct in that common sense should dictate bonuses. I tried to figure a formula to calculate them, but I think just looking and thinking would be more accurate. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears.

I'm working on adding the glaciers (with names), and a little more interesting land features. It's kind of learning as I go though. I've deleted & reverted many times already.

The entire week of Jan-21 is booked at work, as we have some corporate folks coming down, so updates may come slowly, but they will come.

Thanks for the post oaktown.

The giant "dead spot" in the middle kinda annoys me. Could you maybe throw an attack path across the middle or something? I'm not a fan of the circular gameplay. A shortcut across the map would be most excellent, in my opinion.

I love the circular gameplay, I think it makes things a wee bit different than other maps.

Thanks all.. I originally wanted the path through the middle but then decided against it. I'm going to dress up the dead areas a bit so it won't be so bland. I'll be posting an update soon (mainly graphical).

Iceland is famous for it's continental shelf running through it...

Can you add this this on the map? (If it's there can you point it out!)

I'll look into it. :|

Colors okay?
Territ names easy enough to read on different monitors?
Borders clearly enough defined?
Bonus's okay?

update is looking great. graphically and playability wise, this could beat all the current maps in teh main foundry.

for the legend, could u list it in sort a north-south way, or east-west way? it just makes it a lot easier to find because of the textures and ice on the map, its a bit hard at first.

u could list the 2 east continents first then go north-south for the west side. would make it much more player friendly to be able to see which continent gets what better.

Shilvering? You don't like the pink/purple southern color?

At the moment you've got the regions listed going anti-clockwise, which is counter-intuitive. Id recommend starting at the green Northern Region, and going clockwise...

The map continues to look impressive. THe first thing I noticed on the upodate was the big orange bit... I can see that the colours are all balanced, although I preferred the light yellow/cream colour you had previously. This is probably just a matter of personal taste, and not really a suggestion! :wink:

Somebody mentioned how the cream / green were too close. And I was afraid on some monitors it would not contrast enough, which is why I changed it. I kind of like the cream also. I may switch back. Also on this update I made the green a bit darker, so that would probably help differentiate the two.

Legend order is no problem to move. I'll slowly be working on dressing it up a bit.

So.... Eastern should be Cream or Orange?
