I like the latest version a lot, and due to the smallness of it, you won't need impassables. Showing the country's borders with other nations is a nice touch, too. One question: what's with the "NB"? I have no idea what this means and don't consider it necessary to convey that Luxembourg City starts neutral.

N.B. stands for nota bene, or, note well. It basically means to take note of whatever follows.

I don't like how the Schultrange label cross over the borders. It's not very readable.


It seems weird that Luxembourg City has a blue border at the north when the rest of the border is different.


I think the continent colours would be better served being more like the mini-map.
1. I'd prefer the southeast continent to be a bit darker than you have it on the mini-map.
2. I think Luxembourg City would look better being more white.

What else can i say on first sight....Bravissimo.
Is it possible to gain some more clarity on the crest..it looks slightly blury?
Also are you planning on naming the continents in the mini-map, only asking because edbeard picked me up on that one. ;)
Also, you have the neihgbours' flags in there, would it hurt to add the flag for Luxembourg? More of an educational thing i guess. :)

One possibility could be to have the other nations flags as a very faint underlay on them (it might look awful but it could work)

1-I love the map! It looks awesome.
2- I dont love the minimap, it looks like it came out of a Science textbook IMO.
3- Are there going to be continent names on the map?
4- Although easy to tell on the mini map, Luxembourg City seems to blend into the other continent.

Haha. Ok Tom I'll let you in on a little secret. Even though I said in my first post that I was not going to use any impassable objects...yes the blue line is a river. I put it there on purpose to confuse people! :p

Version 1.8

I created a new version of the mini map. Maybe people like this better but I really don't want to focus on the mini map any more since I believe it does the job. No there will not be any region names on the map or mini map because they are not needed.

I refined the coat of arms...this one looks better and less blurry. (cairns)

I changed the territory name that was overlapping with that of a neighbouring city which had a shorter name. (edbeard)

I also added the Luxembourg flag to the mini map. (cairns)

The blue border for Luxembourg City is there to denote that it is the capital city. Luxembourg City is actually part of that region in real life but I made it white and with a blue border because in the game it starts as a neutral and standalone territory.

second time for me to drop in here to look at the map now, first time to comment, and like usual im not gonna comment that much until later

for now, i have some comments/questions


1) whats the weather usually like for luxembourg? the color scheme makes me think that its cold....
2) maybe up the bonus for the esch continent and the reisdorf continent and remich continent to 4? that way they could deploy 1 on each of that continents territories, yet still have 1 to use for attacks

Postby rocky mountain on Wed Apr 30, 2008 5:43 pm

the mini-map looks much better :D

i think that the top region should be worth more because it has the most territories (5). I know it only has 2 bordering territories, but still. I think the other bonuses are fine though.
also, if there's going to be a blue border around Luxembourg city, then can you make it more evident on the bottom of it as well?
Lastly, i think that the coat-of-arms and the flag should be switched. I believe flags should be displayed more than coat of arms...

It's cold but not as cold as Scandinavia for example. Anyway I live in a warm place so I don't care! :p
The bonuses are right I think...no need to up them.

Glad that you like the new mini map. Even though the top region has the most territories of them all, it is also the easiest to hold so I think the bonus is right. Luxembourg City is technically part of the greater region (light blue) even though it is a standalone territory, that's why the bottom border is not blue. Hmm, the coat of arms would be too small and its details would be lost if used in the mini map. I tried that before posting. I like the way they are set right now.

Version 1.9 - Added region names to the mini map

I decided to add the region names to the mini map after all since these could prove helpful while playing the game on the map.
