I'm surprised this received zero votes. There really must be no one looking at the map... (Kidding of course. ;))

I like the look of the map, and I am always a fan of Standard game play. Keep up the work.

Um. It says Treay of the Triple Alliance in the map description. Small typo.

I think the bonus legend should have some basic color designation.

Nothing exciting with this one... added army circles, moved some borders to fit them. May need a bit more space in Paraguay for the small map circles, but the rest of the map works fine as far as territory size.

bonuses: I've added Goyaz to the legend, which I somehow overlooked when I cut the map down. It's the same size as Paraguay, but historically it's not as important so I'm thinking I'd like to leave it as a +2. Plus, if somebody wants to go for that region they'll be relatively unmolested as more early action will probably take place in the south.

legend: I'll come up with a way to indicate color... preferably not with a minimap. I would like to do the entire legend up right, but let's get this out of Ideas first, shall we?

in the map legend, "disease" has been wrongly spelt as "desease"

Since nobody's talking I'm going to forge ahead. Added some elements - border, legend, coloreddots next to the region titles in the legend which will be replaced by something else that shows the color better and works with the map.

Somebody talk to me about the use of colors... I started with all greens in Brazil, but now I'm wondering if this is necessary, Maybe it'd be best to mix it up?

And am I just spinning my wheels on this one? Because I'm not hearing much, either positive or negative.

I'm always a fan of Standard Maps, and this map is pretty standard I'd say. There was a topic in the Foundry Discussion, and I believe more talk in the Map Ideas, that users want more Standard Maps. :)

I say keep pushing on, but I say this as user who wants to play the map, it's not an order by the Foundry Foreman. ;)

this looks good. never saw it before. I was looking through the whole thread, and was about to comment about how the disputed area had the same color as another continent, but you've changed it, and it looks good now.

can we get an indication on how that one water territ will be obtained? will it start neutral? and maybe we can get a bonus for holding it and some capitals?

ps. i really like the look of the map's background... really.... mappy? lol

I don't think Gran Chico should have a bonus. It's disputed territory and this is in a war.
me have no sig

i disagree with the above poster, if its disputed it should be the most coveted territory on the board. i really like the map so far, lots of territories, lots of gaps and ways to maneuver about including the capitals... maybe include a bonus for holding all 4 capitals would be my only suggestion but im really looking forward to when this comes out, this looks awesome

Maybe I'm being dense, but is there a reason Rio de la Plata can attack/be attacked by the capitals?
