Do you also hold the "Pacific Sea Route" territory? If so, I can;t see any reason why chained would not let you make that fortification. My guess is that there was likely some sort of temporary glitch, or a user error? What was the game number, and which round did you try to make that fortification?

a spelling mistake in one of the region names: we have alténtida instead of atlántida in the xml and both of the maps.

Hola!
Nice map, game-wise, but a coupla minor issues that might already have been covered, I don't want to trawl through 20-plus pages, so apologies if these have already been brought up. And yes, I realise that this map is already out there, but just for pedantic accuracy :

First, it should be Atlántida, not Atléntida..
Second, the region labelled San José is not San José at all, if anything it's Guanacaste. As the map stands, San José is pretty much at the East point of the compass by Puntarenas port.
Third (and this would involve gameplay changes), the people of Limón would be very upset that they're not included as a seaport, as they have one of the largest seaports in the region.
And Bocas del Toro is huge on the map:) I like that artistic licence, seriously. Bocas itself is actually really really tiny. But I like that it gets writ large on the map, partly because thinking about it, I couldn't come up with anything better outside tricky indigenous nomenclature that would mystify, or something really dull and descriptive, and partly because it's a beautiful part of the world. So bravo for that.
But my other minor pedantic points stand, I think.
And if I were being an ultra pedant, I might quibble with the naming and size of Copán - call it Puerto Cortés and shrink it a bit, I would. But that's a minor thing.
Nice map, I hope that this criticism is seen in the constructive light that is meant, and I also realise that these words come far too late to make any difference anyway:)

Also too late and pedantic like above but - it doesn't state anywhere that the sea routes can attack the ports. I suppose it might seem obvious but I took the legend literally and was then rather surprised to discover that I'd lost all my bonuses.
Could be clearer.

Now that I read it again, I see what you mean. It could be interpreted as if the only point having the sea routes is to get the bonus.

Maybe MrBenn is around and still has the map files handy enough to change the text?
