Update

- Fixed Mt. Gambier/Eureka border.
- Left Adelaide/Mt. Gambier river crossing as is, it is too close to the coast to move any further south.

Fair enough, I can live with that.

The only thing which still looks wrong to me is the river sticking into the middle of Tamworth. Do you not think it might me less intrusive if it finished nearer the border?

Lake Eyre is a one-step territory to cross from one side of the map to the other. South Australia is also the only state to border all others. That's why there's the extra army bonus. :)

though because lake eyre borders so much else it is easier 2 defend cause u can put most men there wile in the orange the armies are more divided

well u dont really should take this serious cause no1 else thinks about this the same as me :(

To me, that just totally contradicts your own point. If you have to focus your armies in Lake Eyre that's going to make your other borders vunreble. Lake Eyre's bordered by four other states, the Northern Territory's hardest to defend territory Tennent Creek is bordered by two other states.

Do we need to continue discussing this point? :D

For other borders we have:

- Mt. Gambier: borders Victoria, the easiest to hold and potentially strongest state on the map. It's the equivelant of Oceania/South America on the Classic map.

- Coober Pedy: borders half the Western Australia border territories.

If anyone else wants to pitch in on this discussion please do. I feel the bonuses are justified.
