No worries. I am not mad at you for offering your feedback. i am glad you cared that much. I am just making sure that everyone know what I will change. I appreciate the comments.

And believe me, that was NOT offensive. If that sort of feedback bugged me, i would not have made any maps.

Thanks
WM


Word. Looking forward to playing your map!

Widow,

Forgive me if someone else has already commented on this, but I-85 Goes through Raleigh-Duham also. You have it ending in Greensboro. Which would help the other quirk, which is having grown up in Atlanta, and having relatives up the East Coast and across... 85/20 is way more important than 75.

This is taken from the first post of the thread:
Now just as the original USA map is not completely geographically accurate, like why can't Oregon attack Idaho, the road connections on these maps are not either. The basic roads exist but some connections across state borders are eliminated to help with border control.


All state shapes are copied from the USA map.
If a state did not exist in the USA map (New England State are a good example) I did my best to keep the same look and feel.
The 6 maps are based on the USA map. I broke them up based on those bonus groups. That is why NJ, NY and Penn are in New England.

Also, If anyone asks these types of questions or raises these sorts of complaints. Please just quote this post in response (if I have not already done that).

Thanks

Killing, his catch all that you re-posted referred to states and state maps. I am referring to the bonus structure inside of the map. Was just pointing out that a interstate map would show I-85 going East from Greensboro.

Actually I refer to the roads.

Now I know it does say across state borders but internal the roads are not all represented either. It was GP choices. Too many cities on an interstate make it harder to hold.

Plus, according to google, 85 goes through Durham and misses Raleigh. And it would only show it going east if there was another city it connected to. Since there is not one on this map, the road ends.

Ok, good point. I guess I got so used to 85 to Raleigh when I had clients there I forgot that Durham is actually part of the Raleigh Durham exit...

Having lived in and visited most of these regions, I'm excited about having all these maps on Conquer Club.

Having said that, I never liked the look of the USA map, and I really wish these looked more like actual maps. I'm a map guy, and that's one of the reasons I enjoy Conquer Club so much. But these look like...I don't know, cartoons or something? I would like it so much better if the territories actually bordered each other as they do in real life. I would just find it a lot more exciting for gameplay.

A bit late, I know, but there's my opinion. I'm about to play on one of them for the first time (the Great Lakes map).

I've played West and Northeast now, and got my butt handed to me twice. They're fun maps, best played with a small number of people.
