I just want to say this map is great fun for 6p dubs with no spoils.

Sadly I don't see many people playing dubs on this map... hard to get games filled. Everyone should try no spoils dubs on this map... it's awesome!

West Town should be Pilsen.
West Loop should be West Town.
Wicker Park should be Bucktown.

Just my suggestions. At the least you shouldn't have West Town below the West Loop.

A great map, it represents well the town I call home. I suppose it may be late for changes, but I agree that Pilsen would be a better label for the area labeled West Town. West Town is a pretty broad catch-all that includes Ukie Village, East Village, Noble Square and probably Wicker Park depending on who you ask. West Town is certainly out of place when it's south of West Loop. I'd put the West Town label on the territory named Wicker Park.

I also played several games before realizing that Roseland and Gresham were connected. Now I know better, but that area of the graphic could maybe be cleaned up a bit.

I see that this board has already been quenched, so I don't expect any changes soon, just thought I'd throw my thoughts in there. On the whole I do think it's a great map and congrats to ScottLand for doing such a wonderful job. I especially like the helicopters. There are only a few hospitals in Chicago with helipads, and I think it's a nice touch that that's reflected in this map.

Good luck in all your games,

Rob

Definitely too late for this, but just in case you ever do an edit. Rose Hill is actually Rosehill. And the Redline is too short on both ends. It should go all the way to the Northern Border and a lot farther south (it ends at 95th).

Other than that it looks great.
