Why do you say it would be more balanced jefjef?

What do others think on this?

I would have to agree with him there, maybe switch the locations of the text with army placement.

For me Pavlov's house is hard to read, probably because it is located in the river, and the same color text as all the other land regions. I am not sure if you want to change this to the color of the river text or keep it that way.

More balanced potential tert targeting and a more natural North - South. I also found myself wanting to bombard it with Sadvaya arty and couldn't and it just made sense that I should of been able to.

I'll change the colour to the same as that of the river texts :)

Version 38.
Let me know if this is OK.
1. changed the Pavlov's house text to river boat text colour
2. Fixed the R 62nd 13th Div text so that it is more legible

Why can't I reinforce out of Artilleries?

I don't think that makes much sense.

Artilleries do not attack, they only bombard, and you can only reinforce along attack routes. Think of the artillery as being dug in and essentially immobile. The adjoining infantry (which helps to form a +1 bonus with the artillery) is the mobile force in the area. Just remember not to deploy or advance more troops into the artillery position than you plan on using for bombardment (aside from simple defensive numbers, in case of an attack on the artillery).

I am truly enjoying this map. One note. Sniper S3, the territory name blends into the background and it is hard to pick out.

I've played nearly 150 games on this map and it's been very kind to me :) One thing I've noticed is that in EVERY singles game I've played U3 R1077AA is neutral, is this intentional or a bug ?

Thanks for that feedback. I'll see if anyone else has same issue.

Kind to me also ;)
Not it's not a bug, it is intentional...each two unit region has at least one neutral, and neutrals can only be set statically at game beginning.

Yeah, now that wisemanpsemc mentions it, it is a little difficult to spot the grey S3 on that purple. But "Kulikov" stands out well. I'm not sure if it would be best to (a) change the S3 to white for the contrast, (b) change the XML to say "Kulikov (S3)" (and the others similarly) so that the focus of the search is for the more visible text, (c) some other solution or (d) no change at all.

I agree that it can be annoying, but AA and artillery on this map, as in real life, only bombard other locations, and leave it to the infantry and armour to move in and occupy a location. And in conquer club, if you cannot attack a location, you cannot reinforce to it either. It forces you to plan a bit more, but I think it makes this a very challenging and enjoyable map.

I'd like to say that I think this map is brilliant - though quite tricky to learn (I'm playing in about 4 games on it right now).

My main grime is that I can't tell exactly how many troop strength I have on my own snipers. I don't mind not knowing others' troop strengths but I think I should know my own.

I'm running and old version of firefox (can't upgrade) so BOB isn't an option. Anyhow, I should at least know my own sniper strength somehow.

Other than that I love this map - I play it foggy anyhow, which suits it better i think.

Is there anything in the XML right now that would allow the tag system to override "sunny" conditions? If not then perhaps it should be added to the base DTD for this "sniper" type situation. that way the player who owns the province knows its strength but the other players don't.

A sort of <alwaysfoggy>region</alwaysfoggy> tag.

If I wanted to code a map and I wanted to use invisible dungeon dwellers that were always invisible no matter what then I'd like this tag available for me to use - but also to be able to overridden by Dust of Appearance say.

anyhow, the sniper question needs to be fixed or I'm going to have start penciling sniper strength on my wall.
