This looks very good, and being an aussie, it's nice to see a map with such a good level of detail and knowledge about sydney. Well done mate, can't wait to play it.

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. :)

Bastard!
Not you RB0 ;)
What the fluff has caused this?
It is strange that no-one has mentioned it before this. :-s :-s
Has this occured on any other maps?

Thanks cairns :D

I dunno... could have been the XML update.... I'm kinda noticing slight off centers on a few other maps too. Seems to be on large maps, of course since a fair majority of people use the small maps it doesn't get noticed as much. I use large maps since I got a spiffy new monitor with the new computer I got for Christmas. :D

Nice, but if it is happening on a few other maps also, then lack needs to know about it.

I'm hoping it is just a couple of coordinates previously missed, but I've done my due diligence, just waiting to see what the results are.
