Mongolia is part of the Far East bonus region, is it not? It shows as dark purple on the main map.

However, on the mini map showing bonuses, it just shows white dead zone where Mongolia is, even though it should be shown as purple.

Does anyone think this will ever be fixed?

I do not see any dead space between China and Russia on the mini-map of either the large or small maps. Are you perhaps looking at the circle that has the 4 on it, or the dead zone where the 'Stans are?

Sorry, I didn't realize that when you are accually playing it Mongolia is filled with purple on the minimap.

At the start of this post the "newest" version has the mentioned mistake.

My bad.

No sweat. The first post is supposed to be updated during development, but a little fix like this might have been introduced in beta, or even after quenching, and not made it back to the first post. Perhaps that is why the live map is now World 2.1, while the first post here shows World 2.0.

I raised this point in my Random Game Analysis article, and I have just witnessed another player lose a game because of it.

It was World 2.0 originally...Then some attack routes were changed for playability so it was changed to World 2.1.

World 3.0 would no doubt be a very popular map, and a very interesting one to play!

I seem to have spotted a map bug in a game we're playing

game no. 10672023

the green player is getting a 6 bonus but there doesn't seem to be a 6 bonus avalible on the map

Please don't cancel or interupt the ongoing game as all the players know about this and are playing on. but it would be good to know how this is happening?

i kinda doubt it is a but, or at least not a bug of the map. maybe a site bug.
if a map has been quenched for so many years we can safely assume it has no bugs.
too bad it's fog and we can't see anything.

2012-04-09 21:27:14 - patrickaa317: it's not a bug
2012-04-09 21:27:44 - patrickaa317: i won't tell you where he is at but if he was holding all of north america it would read such as:
2012-04-09 21:28:59 - patrickaa317: +3 for the United States, +4 for Canada, +2 for Central America, +2 for North America (the difference between 11 & 3,4,2)
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

Yes, patrickaa317 has explained it well enough for an ongoing fog game. This is not a bug at all.

If this does make sense (obviously I can't see as its a fog game) Then I don't think the award of the bonuses should appear as they do in the game log. as its just confusing for everyone else.

OK I know where he is and what he holds just from looking at the log. As the game went on

I still think that a better way to write the bonus in the log would be if a player owned a continent just replace all the individual bonuses with the continent bonus

or alternatively If you didn't want to reveal a continent capture in a fog game, alter the continent bonus on the key so it reflects better the game log entries.

So patrickaa317's example would look like

Central America +2
Canada +4
America +3
American continent +2

Just a suggestion to make it more user friendly :D

Really good map BTW ;)

Yes, I agree it is a bit confusing, but on the other hand, it does make fog more challenging, at least until you understand the tricky bit. I highly doubt that either the map or the XML will be changed at this point.

I like the map and its complexity but some of the borders are not only unclear but confusing. Does Zimbabwe not border Congo on this map?
