only two territories separate from their pack... I would like to put some canoe outline, or something ike that at the base of the Mississippi to connect Natchez and Choctaw


sounds good :D

Wow...looking very good. If I can think up a few names to replace the European ones on the map, I'll let you know.

One thing that you might want to do is lighten the borders, or the rivers. At the moment it's hard to distinguish the rivers as different from the borders.

Cheers,

everything i can think of has been pretty much stated already. this map has jaw dropping graphics and just looks perfect already. my main issues are the borders cutting through the islands in the artic, some one them you can resolve with an army number i bet but some of them not so much.

also id like to add while the bonuses do need a little tweaking like people have said, the current set up makes the map rather realistic since there will be a lot more action in the south than in the north and thats how it was 500 years ago :) but seeing as this is CC id probably prefer a map that plays well and is decently accurate over a map that plays horribly and is perfectly accurate

What an awesome idea... canoes for passable routes is genious!!! lends chaicter and authenticity all in one swoop..

I've had my heart on a map like this for as long as i have been here. The culture and politics were highly developed here long before europeans came and those aspects are rarely represented in everyday life. Most people dont know the extent the americas were populated prior to european colonazation.

Kudos Tisha!!!! =D> =D> =D> =D>

I see some problems, the fist is with the southwest. Say that someone has all the territories of the southeast bonus region on the east of the missisipi river, if he doesn't have some other territory on the other side then it is going to be really har for him to compleat his bonus. I like bonuses that are hard to get but then it needs to be worth more.

If the date is set at 1500, or give or take a bit, then you can have hispaniola and cuba both native territories that can border maya and seminole which would help solve the above problem and make the map easier to move around.

Is it just the font or is the H in hopi and hare not capitalized?


It looks great!

WOW! For a first and second draft that is amazing, I would expect that to be maybe a 5th draft but it is beautiful, I have nothing to offer because alot of people have already took what I was originally going to say; but keep up the great work.

Re: Native America.. UPDATE page 3

Postby Tisha on Sun Apr 05, 2009 12:40 am

72 territories
11 bonus regions

-I'm still working on names of territories, and probably will be for quite a while.. any information there helps..
-added a canoe as a passable.... does it need to be put onto the map? or is it obvious?

Just three quick things because I love this map
1. Get rid of the compass it does not fit with the map
2. Either capitalize the names or don't but don't have it random
3. Add more canoes because that river really divides the map and only one looks odd

Very nice map indeed Tisha. Well done!

However I must say that I have a big problem with the colours used. It is very hard for me to differentiate between a region and another.

Also would it be possible to have a mini map instead of just listing the various regions?
