A map has to be told from somebody's point of view... "Bolivian Claim" isn't a Spanish name. I'm a speaker of English making a map - we screw up all kinds of things regardless of the side of the pond in which we live.

Seeing no other comments in the past week I'm going to assume the aforementioned suggested fix to corrientes is good and send new files to Lack. I've lightened the coasts along the corrientes borders, so here's what I'm sending...

The spoils from that map are wrong. 3x Green is giving 4 troops, and 3xBlue is giving 6 troops.

Please take a look at the game 4567460.

Cheers!

there's nothing wrong with the spoils. Game 4567460 has escalating bonuses, so the first set is worth 4 armies, the second set 6, the third set 8 and so on.

Something is wrong with this and I am not sure what happened.
S. Ignacio is in Paraguay and I was clearly attacked and my bonus was broken before my turn and yet I received 3 troops for "holding" it. He also didn't receive any spoils. This is in Game 4652457. Ideas?

This is likely to have been caused by that recent server problems ive been reading about? Some deployed armies (in the log) actually never appeared on the board.

map: Triple alliance-Gramatical error's??

Postby sudokU on Thu May 14, 2009 8:27 pm

Concise description:
  • In the "Triple Alliance" map there are several names of some territories that atract my attention.

Specifics:
  • Those are: Cordova and Buenos Ayres. I'm not argentinien, I'm from Uruguay (next to it - sorry, my english is not the best). Have you done it like they will write it in that epoca? Because Is not Cordova, it's Cordoba, and Buenos Ayres is Buenos Aires...

I don't live anywhere near South America, and don't know if this is maybe the local way of spelling it either,
but maybe you could ask it in the map's discussion topic.
it's located here

or you could send the maker of the map, oaktown, a PM.

I send a message to the creator of the map and this is his answer:

"the Triple Alliance is supposed to represent a 19th Century map - some of the spellings used are 19th century English conventions, and were taken directly from maps of that era. In my maps I like to be true to the era I'm representing, even if it means doing things we know are wrong today.

I know that Buenos Aires (and other things) are spelled wrong, but that's how many european mapmakers spelled it 140 years ago! :D

thanks for taking interest,
oaktown"

talking of misspellings, here is a genuine one: cordilheira geral is correct in the xml and on the large map, but is cordilhiera geral on the small map.

If anybody cares enough to update it, here's the small image with spelling corrected. Hopefully I pulled up the correct version of the map.

Thanks to ian for the catch, and to Benn for bringing it to my attention.
