Yes, i can probably loose some legend areas in the upcoming updates to make it a bit smaller. or reduce the number of terts....i think 48 would be the next size down for an 8 player game.
currently at 59.

48 = 2x24, 3x16, 4x12, 5x9+3n, 6x8, 7x6+6n, 8x6

at 48 it might be good for a medium size speed game. :)

2x16, not 24. There is a third neutral player.

56 is okay too,

2,3x 18+1n; 4x14; 5x11+1n; 6x9+2n; 7x8; 8x7

You can also set polls where you can check multiple options - like in the game finder.


so are you for or 'ginst this map pepperonibread??


I'm all for it, cairns... though it would be cool to see a little more Sydney flavor, if it doesn't clutter the map too much :)

OK...
Colours could perhaps use a bit of updating. Inner west and randwick are pretty close, and hard to distinguish from the water...
Uh Huh...got you.

I like the use of roads as impassables, but the "pedestrian crossings" look a bit awkward... perhaps foot bridges would be a better idea?

I am going to stick with the pedestrian crossing, as this hasn't been done before on a CC map in play whereas bridges have, and i had foot bridges on the previous attempts and they didn't go down well. me and bridges are not exactly graphically compatable. :wink:

I'd like to see it spread out a bit more too... move the bonuses and the "statistics" somewhere else and give yourself a bit of extra room?
yes, all that will move about of course...i'll see what i can do!!

56 eh? OK..i can live with that...reducing it by three from where it is now....

is 56 terts good for speed games though....they must surely take some time to play....wouldn't that be 28 terts each?

Sydney flavoured.. hmm.... When you look at the map it needs to be unsmiling and you need to get the impression "This map is too important for you to play on"... (no offence to any Sydneysiders... hey, at least you're not Victorian :P)

cairnswk, in 2 player games, the territories are still given out in 1/3. The last 1/3 starts neutral.

No, only 18, and two neutrals. in a 1v1 game, there is a third neutral player so that you dont start off with too many territories.

This is a comment on sydney, not on the map :P

Mainly that whenever I've been to Sydney I've found the people too self-important, and concerned with their own worlds to even smile at a stranger on the street... Nothing like Perth or Bunbury at all. I have no idea how you'd convey that in graphics :P and it's more of a friendly dig at Sydney, rather than anything serious :P

Oh i see...even that old victorian / nsw rivalry hits at you eh?

I know what you're on about...but that's what happens in a large city doesn't it. anyways, it didn't affect me cos i still got plenty of smiles. you know, one thing about sydney, is that you never get bored with the streets projections....it's not grided like NY or USA cities....i often say that the streets were built on all the old goat tracks but it's a wonderful panorama. :)

umm...i hadn't even registered with the parramatta river cat service link - good idea.
i really don't want to go any further than that with links and funny stuff as it gets too complicated for the "rug rats", not even gonna do train lines.
but keep them coming...you never know something simple might just click.
i know one thing, i'm gonna have to pull the harbor out a bit to give it more spread.
