The map also says that bus stations can attack other bus stations. This is the intent of the statement about freeways.


the wording could probably use a tinker.

I'd remove the "(except for buses)" portion of that part of the legend to avoid confusion. The buses can attack other buses (or however it is phrased) is satisfactory on that end.


Agreed. and understood, i'll upload the new images to lackattack now.


Lackattack, please could you upload these two new images below as per the forum request above to remove the phrase "except to buses" from the impassable section of the legend.
Thanks

Thanks C for your wisdom and the reminder that you were correct. However some of us older folk don't necessarily see things until experience teaches a lesson. :)

Its an interesting play here Carins. The bonuses are quite high and I'm wondering if that was intentional (I apologize for not having read the first 14 pages of this thread-I did read the last three). I'm not sure if its a good or bad thing but it certainly adds more emphasis on breaking your opponents.

As I said a few days ago, I like the map but I'm still rather curious as to why Olympic Park is completely separated from the rest of the territories that make up the same bonus?

I cannot find his name on this one either. I was looking at the new maps when creating a game. I like to see who the clever genius's are that have created them. So since I couldn't see a name on it I came to the foundry to find the threads on each map. :(

The bonuses seem insanely high.

Never played this before but when my partner starts with a +5 bonus for beginning with 3 territories I know something is up.

This map has just pissed me off to no end. Twice in two turns I have incorrectly assumed two territories bordered each other because they were right next to each other. I will certainly lose the game because of this. :evil:

Not meaning to be smart....but perhaps this is the problem then.
Can you tell me which territories, please.

I don't think it's your fault, I didn't pay close enough attention because it's my first time playing this map. I'm just venting, that's all.

For your info, the territories/non-borders I screwed up on were:

Ryde/Gladesville/Lane Cove - i was sweeping the board and advanced the stack from Ryde to Gladesville before realizing that Gladesville didn't border Lane Cove. Maybe it's because the label for Gladesville almost touches Lane Cove, I don't know. But I was stuck at that point because I already had Balmain. So that sucked.

The other one was just me being stupid - I deployed to King's Cross thinking I could attack Bondi. I was wrong. Nothing map-wise wrong here, the impassable is obviously there just as it is elsewhere in the map.

Yeh, that's not good, you did yourself in....and 72o if its any consolation....you're not the only one who gets in this position...i do it all the time (on most maps when i am in a hurry) not looking properly and even when i check in the xml drop-downs to ensure i can attack/fort somewhere, i still manage or the computer manages to stuff it up on me.
Thanks for the feedbak though. :)

Playing Metro today and I've noticed the coordinates for the large map seem to be off. Fair number of territories off by several pixels, all still within the circles though. Give it a check cairns? Might just be me. Do like the map, not one of my all time favs, but a good one none-the-less. :)
