oaktown wrote:hey cairnswk, I know that this might not be a welcome comment, but regardless of how good a map this makes I suspect it'll be rarely played because it isn't a geographic region that means much to anybody.

That said, the coral coast map still does better than half of the maps I've made, so what do I know? ;)


oaktown, not that its unwelcome but keyogi said that about Cairns Coral Coast when it was in development, I have proven him wrong through the makings of a good classic style gameplay map which as yo-u pointed o-ut still remains popular.

I'd like to still give it a go.

I could say the same thing about the Charleston or Citadel map, doesn't mean much to me 'coz i've never been there but won't stop me from playing them.

As for not meaning anything to anyone, well what can i say. let the forum decide. So far the few responses are positive. :)

Lake morris holds the water supply for Cairns.
Perhaps it could be a bonus tert that provides a +1 bonus if held in conjunction with a whole region....if a couple of other connects were made to it.

Another nice map but a bit messy to see connections with both the minimap and the deadspace in the middle:O

Yeah but i think the problem is where it connects to the city below could you try moveing it closer to the armycircle and not so long down?

Same with Yahara more up more in the middle.

I don't really have a problem with the connections. The only thing I would suggest is moving the Yorkey's Knob*-City Tinnie connection's City terminus a bit west so there's no confusion that it's a separation connection from the Yarrabah-City one.

*What kind of a name is Yorkey's Knob? Crazy Aussies...

Thanks Zeak....
Yes we love a bit of good humour, but this one's history is real and can be found here if anyone is interested!

The problem with increasing the minimap size is that it overlaps Lake Morris, and you can't have that. Moving Lake Morris (going against reality) is not an option. But if you move the minimap to where the Tinnie and Road connections info is now, I think you can enlarge it a bit. Then move the tinnie/road info to the bottom left corner, where it should fit fine.
