The large map has serious centering issues, you could fit in two whole army circles between the correct army circle and where the number actually lies in some cases. Almost every territory needs help there.

Nice nice map (yet again =D> )

Haven't quite figured out if any part of it is broken or not, but doesn't seem so initially.

Small point: "T'zu-hsi" is like that in the XML and like "Tz'u-hsi" on the map - no idea which one is correct.

i'll look into that, thanks BENJIKAT. I relaise this is a difficult map, and is not going to to be easily understood, but then Pearl Harbor was like that when i took everyone to a new level of link association.

Excellent map, it's amazing how to find out all the connections :) Although it's more less clear where the bonusses are -- i'm wondering whether all connections are correct.

>> i like the current connections - although i wouldn't know if i didn't have BOB. It is totally not clear how the connections are, and i cannot read them from the map. Eg: the countries at the top of the map have quite funny connections.

But honestly: i love it this way :lol: :lol: :evil: :twisted:


edit: furthermore, i notice a high chance on lagging ... (the infamous error code). i'm not sure, but maybe it has to do with the map.

Cairns, i mean that when you want to move, it keeps loading - box pops up with "Error Code" - and you have to refresh the map again. Sometimes this takes 10 seconds or more - ruining a freestyle game. I suppose you have had experience with this lag?

It happens at other maps too, but on this one i had it quite a bit more

Mmmm. that's strange...i know there is a small 2-5 second lag running Bob on my computer, but if you're getting Error code then perhaps it has something to do with your connection to the server. i've had that happen in the past on various maps.
Nobody else has mentioned the lag yet, did you check in the bugs forum?

First, I like the map (I think ;) ), but I must say this is the first time I have had people join my 2 player games and not even take a turn! Not every map is for everyone.

That said, I after playing it maybe 7-8 times, I am still not completely clear on all the connections. You referred to Pearl Harbor above, but I had little problem there at first. In this one, I definitely do. I don't know how to fix it without making unweildy explanations or ruining the graphics.

Maybe, because this is SUCH a complicated one, you could somehow reference a more detailed explanation?
