I like the idea of leaving it neutral with a bonus of +1 (or +2), or what if its deployed on that territory?



Oh sorry, I wasn't very clear in my post, I see that now :? I meant a +1 or +2 as an autodeploy not a bonus. But I still like the idea of it starting neutral.


i gotta say, i don't think i'd ever take a territory that auto deploys which is always going to be separated from the rest of the map by neutrals, especially since, by the time i have the troops to take both the killer neutral terit and the autodeploying terit, i'll be the one who controls all the terits it could possibly reach! i don't think it makes sense to have it start neutral... but maybe that's just me, I'm not really that good a strategician... :?

You know...now that you mention it...that makes sense. I mean the killer neutrals surrounding it are a bit of a turn off, if you know what I mean. I guess we'll just see how this develops and see what the mapmaker wants to do and if anyone else has better suggestions. :-k

When I think of the American Revolution, I do not envision a map like this. You have to remember that the states did not look like they do today, well some of them at least. Note the Pink Highlighted areas..

At the moment I'm being overwhelmed by essays for school, but those hsould be turned in mid-week next week and I'll be able to put more attention towards this map. I'm about halfway through a revision draft in which a few graphics parts are cleaned up and the Wilderness territories have been renamed to match Indian tribes. There's a few more things I want to alter on it and then I'll post it. So hopefully, expect an updated draft later next week.

It would appear that development of this map has stalled. If the mapmaker wants to continue with the map, then one of the CAs will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system, after an update has been made. ;-)

Ok, update time!

I changed the Wilderness to Indian territories

Reduced bonuses by 1

Changed the names of New Jersey and Massachusetts

Couldn't figure out what to change Del. to, I thought Wilmington would work bc I can abbreviate it but I've already got a Wilmington. Any help appreciated.

I cleaned up various graphics spots that I had noticed, if anyone notices any more be sure to say something.

Thinking about changing it to 13 colonies map over American revolution as some have pointed out it doesn't exactly have a whole lot of special features revolving around the revolution... thoughts?

Not sure what to do about British Canada, see poll... err... mods can you reset the poll please?

I like it, what is wrong with delaware though? Why does it have to be renamed? I thonk you should add some french ships too, because the french did become important. Also, that would make the map less thin, which I personaly think is kinda odd about this map.

And here are the Poll Results:


How should bonuses be decided?

Reduce by 1 on everything... 8... 73%
Run it in a different spreadsheet... 0... No votes
It's fine the way it is. No one will ever hold the Carolinas... 1... 9%
I have a suggestion! (Please write below)... 0... No votes
Top to bottom: 3, 4, 5, 4, 3 (ships at 4)... 2... 18%

Total votes : 11

Thanks, Mr. Benn...

Ok, there's a new poll up regarding the nature of British Canada.

Personally, I'm partial to either leaving it as it is or making it a single man neutral with a 2 or 3 auto deploy.

My reasoning is this: The American War of independence obviously involved Canada and the Americans launched an offensive there. I figure if the American's didn't do anything about the troops in Canada then they would have built up as a base for the British to launch further attacks in the colonies. Thoughts?

Captain: While adding the French ships would be cool, I think I'm going to leave it based around the land war because I'm afraid of doing too much and trying to fit too much in. The ships that are there don't really reflect any particular side, but rather the sea routes used during the war.

As for thinness, I don't really think there's much you can do about getting around that. They were after all coastal colonies. I hope the ships and the Indian terrs. balances this out somewhat.

Isn't it a little tall and thin? I think you should make it a little wider. I like the idea of british canada because I think that it will allow people to stay in the game with the autodeploy and willl give people the oppertunity to then come back and even out the game.

Looks Great, my only wonder is even though it isn't very important, there is a light brown "I don't know what" at the bottom left of the map. Also, if you want me to make you a sig for this map (or others) PM me.

El-pres. - Do you mean like the graphics are too thin for the 13 colonies and it doesn't look right or that just the map in general is too thin. I'm not sure that there is too much to do about it as the 13 colonies were long and skinny as they were coastal colonies. I think its just something that's going to have to be dealt with because of the nature of the territories involved. I tried to round it out a little with the inclusion of the Indian terrs. and the ships. I believe that this will keep the game play a little more circular.

As for the auto-deploy, your thoughts are pretty much what I was thinking when I decided to make the gameplay as it is. I think it should serve as a safe base for a player without too many options, much like the British in the war.

Dub. - I see what you're talking about, I think its some leftover from the map base that I used. I'll clean it up with the next update. As for a sig, that would be great cause I def. need to advertise this thing. Check your inbox :)

Ok, here's the Mark III. What else do I need at this point to get classified as an advanced draft?

Changes:

Cleaned up some graphics

Added bonus area names in the legend.

Added a logo

Moved the abbreviations to under the rules area.
