i was only thinking the same thing myself the other day...
would only be a small map though.
11 fielders
2 batsmen..... even if you included the 9 on the balcony (thats an idea)
11 batsmen
2 umpires
3rd umpire
match referee
scorer
2 commentators
streaker.... always a streaker running around
programme seller
icecream seller
beer tent
whats your ideas cairnes. is it possible? suppose it would be a touch elitist as its only really commonwealth chaps who would play it, or would have any idea what the game was about... 5 days play and only a draw? HUH!!!
i know this is the wrong thread and i appologise profusely. but imagine the field placing
silly mid on-off
square leg
backward square
3rd man
deep mid-off
gully
go on mate... lets see what you and your magic fingers can conjour up

In my experience (limited as it may be), this a piss pour map. Now, I know someone worked hard developing it, but how about at least identifying the bonus amounts somewhere. What a crap shoot. Not worth the effort to play since it comes down to the drop.

Jackets55. Thanks for dropping in for comment and your opinion.
My opinion is that you haven't read the legend and applied that to the map ;) Sorry.
Each bonus is clearly identified on the map itself.

Seems like we've gotten to the point where this can graduate from Beta. 1v1 starting terits issue is fixed, 2-terit bonuses are fixed, and there don't seem to be any additional major complaints.

Indeed, one of the best maps around. All neutrals seemed to be balanced.

Great job, cairns!

Ready for the live for sure!

Aw, man, I realize this comment is a bit too late for the party, but I am disappointed that of all gods this map doesn't feature Venus. Venus was considered to be the mother of the Roman people (via Aeneas), and the Julians in particular liked to flaunt their descent from her. Julius Caesar even dedicated a big temple to Venus Genetrix. Man!

Well, notwithstanding the lack of Venereal presence, congrats on a crazy awesome map. :!:.

Appreciate the post EDM, but the Gods were chosen purely on a 4-5 letter fit, and Aphrodite was simply too long.
