Ruben,

I've gone for 11e - I think it is the most understated of the options - and the texture should be exactly that, understated and subtle.

On another note, the border of Lux. City is in a different style from the other regions, and should probably be amended.

I'm not convinced that Ardennes and Letzeberg are both worth +3 - Letzeberg is pretty impossible to hold, and I'd be tempted to up it to +4.

The whole map is going to be pretty open, although I think the strongest area is going to be Ardennes... it has +3, and can be defended by two terrs. If you get a drop there with Troisvierges, then without crappy dice, I'd imagine you're going to be hard to beat.

How many neutrals do you envisage starting on Lux. City - I'm imagining a standard 3?

Ben all these points have been addressed in previous posts. Check them out mate.

As a small recap the bonus for Letzebuerg was 4 before but got reduced to 3 after much debate. Lux City gets 3 neutrals, there was a poll on this as well.

Since the poll was so close I decided to go a way in between 1.11a and 1.11d. I made the texture of 1.11d more subtle.

Version 1.12

Yes, it's a nice alternative. But I think I'm going to stick with the original.

nice map mate!

small advice: why not make Lëtzebuerg +4, its central, 4 terr to defend, the person who actually gets it and can cash in with it next turn should be in a win situation already.

texture is good and I like Unit_2's idea


I still say that border makes no sense (you know which one). But, at the least a 'Luxembourg City is not part of the Letzebuerg bonus' line is needed if you don't change the border.

There was a poll about the neutral units on Luxembourg City and it was decided that they should be 3.

I don't want to change the Luxembourg flag cause I like it as it is using a different style from the rest.

I have one small question, why didn't you take advantage of the possibilities of adding banks, to add a new bonus. (Also Luxembourg city should be neutral at start.)

Luxembourg City starts as neutral. It is also stated in the map legend that it starts as a neutral.

              Final Forge

---The Luxembourg Map has reached the ‘Final Forge’ Stage. I've revived this thread from the pits of the Foundry Furnace (okay, maybe not) and have examined the contents. Nearly every major concern has been addressed. If there are any other current concerns, please make your voice heard. If after a reasonable amount of time there has not been any objection or protest, the map will be deemed finished with the 'Foundry Brand' of approval and will be submitted for live play. As long as there is still discussion or posts that have yet to be commented on, the map will remain in Final Forge until said discussion has reached the conclusion that the map has reached its final and polished version.

Post questions and concerns if any.
