Sweet looking map and ready for it to come out. Does this pass the color blind test? I am not sure it does.

There are ofc many different forms of colour blindness, but personally I find the graphics of this map very easy to distinguish in comparison to many other maps on CC.

Bosnia-Herzgovina is the only iffy one I see... even so, the minimap helps clarify things.

Well, I've made some minor changes to the map while reproducing the correct sized images...

Bosnia is now slightly lighter with slightly darker text, which should make it perfectly clear. The borders are clearly indicated, and the colour-blind people I've asked to look over the map haven;t reported any issues, so I'm fairly happy with it ;-)

Here are the new final images:

Well done, now it's time to play....;)


          Beta - Quenching

---The Final Forge period has concluded for the Balkan Peninsula map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Beta Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for BETA Play. After an extended period of time in BETA and once all quirks and issues have been resolved, the map will be put into Full Play (barring any Lack vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

              Image


While the map is in BETA Play, there are a couple of administrative tasks that are required of the mapmaker(s) in addition to the initial gameplay testing:
    1. Please ensure that the first post of the thread contains all the necessary information to help future visitors to the development thread; it's particularly important to ensure the most recent images are there, along with any helpful guides (such as gameplay quirks/nuances or the location/size of any starting neutrals etc.)
    2. Please update the Map Information Portal with details of your map
    3. Finally, it is the responsibility of the mapmaker(s) to ensure that they respond to further feedback in a timely and constructive manner.

Looked at the map, the first from my world region ;) . it seems awesome, pity that I do not join any new games this year to check how it works. by looking at map, I have only one thing in mind what can be changed:
slovenia plus 2 bonus is pretty unbalanced. it has bonus the same like albania, macedonia and turkey but is much easier to defend, if put a big stack in sredisnja hrvatska, as it is the only region which may attack slovenia bonus.

I suggest just remove mountains between istra and primorska. if you look at real map, mountains there doesnt exists. in real, mountains end above letter "S" in ISTRA. so, if you just remove mountains left of letter "S", you will do map which is in reality and also very ballance slovenia bonus of 2. it will then be harder to defense, just like it is albania, macedonia and turkey bonuses of 2. then Istra would be able to attack Primorska but still wouldnt be able to attack Kranjska.

Danube river was not drawn properly. Check where it enters the Black Sea.

Methinks Bosnia-Herzegovina needs to have one of its territories neutral... thenobodies80 (yes, I'm blaming you lol) started out with the whole bonus area from the get go in MrBenn's and my game.
