Id need to wear glasses for a start in order to need new ones!!
The Irish connection are obvious grim. Dont state the obvious, its a waste of everyones time.
But you must agree it looks a little like it could attack both strathclyde and south highlands.
Simply trying to prevent Nobunaga getting loads of emails and posts like mine.
Good map though!

... Thanks for the compliment. I know playing on the Large map means scrolling, but clicking on Large Map should (I think) clear up any border questions.

.... Also, the Sussex to Isle Of Wight bug has been fixed. Sorry bout that one - a typo.

... Also - I've recieved some comments concerning border confusion in 2 areas.

... In Scotland, Granpian CANNOT attack North Highlands (nor the other way around).

... In Wales, Dyfed shares a border with Gwynedd. This one is a bit hard to see, I admit.

... The maps, both large and small have been edited to make this clear. I'm sure Lack will put them into use when he has time away from his "server-overload" madness. :wink:

I would just like to say that I've played this map several times (won some and lost some) and I love it. Awesome job all around.

Yes, this is absolutely a terrific map. Though I just played a full game on it and never realized until reading this thread that Hadrian's wall was one-way. I'd ask you to change it, but now that I know, it's to my advantage that it's not advertised... :twisted:

.... And thus an advantage is afforded the history buffs! :wink:

... The Large Map actually says "One Way", with an arrow pointing toward Scotland. Though I know a lot of folks like playing the smaller maps -just easier.

Well the idea of Hadrians wall was that the Scots couldn't get into England but at the same time the English could attack Scotland. So it figures its one way, because its on the top of large hills across the country border :)

.... Modern historians argue that Hadrian's Wall was more a marker and a signal of Roman power to the "barbarians" than it was an actual defensive structure. The empire was already in decline and conquering Scotland was just going to be too expensive. (though another wall was built even further north by a later emporer - to mark the boundry of the empire).

... The fortifications of the actual wall were built to defend from attacks coming from both directions.

.... But that would serve no purpose here, so I made it one-way. :)

Suggesting for British Isles Map

Postby mingusfan on Wed May 30, 2007 11:58 am

In the British Isles map. There is a minor design flaw. The territory of donegal looks like it can attack South Highlands when it actually bridges over to Strathclyde, has anyone else made that error? It's costs me a few games so far, and a minor change to the appearance is all that is nessecarry. Is this possible?

I think the British Isles is up for revamp, so at some point somebody (possibly the original cartographer) will re-do it, either purely graphics or both graphics and gameplay, so this issue should be resolved :D

Either way there is already a British Isles map thread, so this should be added to it.

Feck and i thought the revamp had started. THanks for wasting 2 mins of my life dude :)

Revamps never include fiddling with gameplay as can be noteed from the maximus revamp....It now has lovely graphics but gameplay is and will remain bad :?

That flaw cost me one turn as well. However, how could that have cost you a FEW GAMES? If you keep forgetting about it then you have only 1 person to blame.

I love that map and wouldn't want to see it changed at all, except to make the mentioned line of attack clearer.

Does it need to be reone?

The British isles is a fantastic map as it is. Looks pretty damn good (doesn't have all these fancy pants graphical whatchamecallies but still) and I've played plenty of games on it without having a single issue with is (aside from that I lost some :evil: ).

i despise it for its innacuracy more than anything else, whoever made it should have looked at an actual map of britain before making it.

*hampshire containes some of the most important brittish ports, it is not landlocked

*essex is also not landlocked

*the county to the side of lincolnshire is nottinghamshire, not oxford, oxford is much further south whare hampshire is shown

*lands end is a place in cornwall, cornwall is not a place in lands end (neither is dorset)

*grampian is spelt wrong

*cornwall has been squished down by devon which has been squished down by dorset

*shropshire is halfway up wales, the county in the severn estury is gloucestershire

i think thats it for britain itself....
