I suggest Jackson, TN (pop. 59,643) be used instead of Medina (pop 969) on the Southeast map. What is Medina's claim to fame that warrants its inclusion?

OK, I see the discussion of Jackson, TN vs Jackson, MS. What about Clarksville instead? It's Tennessee's fifth largest city and still in that region of west-of-Nashville and north-of-Memphis, even if it's not on I-40. It's on I-24, which goes through Nashville and Chattanooga.

Sorry but with 39 pages of posts I couldn't read them all - I am playing USA Rockies (Game 4307705) and it certainly started oddly. There was one whole state owned by neutral armies, and then my opponent started with a bonus of 3 troops for holding Any 6 State Capitals. In a No Spoils game that certainly tips the tables.

Is there a way to rpevent this from happening in the coding of the game?

Rockies
21.11% - 4 Capitals
8.26% - 5 Capitals
2.89% - North Dakota

the chances of a player starting with exactly 6 capitals on the rockies map is, according to these calculations, less than 2% (therefore it's not shown in the table - page 26 of this thread), so i think u were just very unlucky. we'll keep an eye out for any more reports of unusual drops. thanks for the alert!

Minor Bug: USA New England (BETA)

Concise description:
Reinforcement issue in USA New England (BETA):
Drop down reinforcement menu has Bennington instead of Rutland (which is on the map).

Specifics/what happened:
I had 4 men on Rutland and wanted to move 3 men to another territory. Rutland was not on the list, but Bennington was. Bennington in real life is located in southern Vermont, the same area as Rutland. So, I selected Bennington from the drop down reinforcement menu, and it moved men from Rutland on the map.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
Because it will have the correct territory in the reinforcement drop down menu. This will obviously alleviate confusion.

WM, nice job on these. I've gotten at least 5 games in on each of them and think they've got a reasonable game play. I do laugh at all the people saying things like "this should be renamed Plains" or things like that but overall they're an enjoyable set.

I like the maps a great deal.

However, In the west there is a geographical mistake in the West. Crescent City does not connect to the "i5" or Redding. Arcata (7 miles north of Eureka), where I happen to live, does via 299.

Crescent city connects however to Grants Pass via 199.

Well technically it does by way of Arcata. I know it is not drawn 100% correct. But I stated before these maps would not be 100% correct as far as exact road location and looks.
Not all cities on every road are labeled and not all possible roads between cities are placed. This was designed purely to ensure better gameplay.

So while technically the road does not look like the one shown on the google map below, it is possible to go from Cresent City to Redding.

My suggestion doesn't change the play of the map, which I have Ifound solid thus far. If Crescent City was simply replaced with Arcata it would make the map more accurate geographically as well. Crescent City connects to 5 but in Grants Pass Oregon via a beautiful but simultaneously horrible road - 199. Then From Grants Pass Redding is 3 hours south. Or one could drive 1.5 hours south to Arcata then go from there to Redding. Either direction from Crescent City you have to change major highways to get to 5. And both ways it is painful.

Redding is 2+ hours East of Arcata via 299. If you were to swap then names === though the location of Crescent city is correct... It would make the roads more accurate.

Finally, Crescent City is very small. Arcata has twice the number of people and if you were to put Eureka (Arcata's neighbor to the south) that has even more people. Crescent City is isolated and a bit out in nowhere land.

Another one I just noticed on New England:

"New York City" is in the XML as "New York".

This might be a choice I'm not aware of, but it seems more like a small mistake. Maybe too small to correct, but hey, that's what Bètas are for :D
