Version 2.
I've simply changed the layout of the legend so that it is clearer what is required (through use of dotted line as per map) for the batsmen and runs on the field.

So take this with a grain of salt as its almost 2AM and the Brewrs won tonight! w00t...

I was thinking 2 nuetrals for the two battsman, 4 neutrals for the fours, 2 neutral for the 1 runs, and 6 neutrals for the 6s.

And anyone else going to back me up on the not needing fielder for the +2 with battsman/fielder/four? I really really really really thing the fielder is not necessary for the bonus; but will reiterate, that the layout is perfect for it by getting through the fielder :)

Also, I'm sure by the time this gets a few more drafts it'll happen, but hte current bounes seem pretty smushed up int he legend.

It looks like a good map. My suggestion is to make the different styles of territs more distinguishable than they are now. I feel that I should look at the legend, and immediatly be able to see al of the continents easily. Shapes and symbols on the map would help fir this too. 8-)

i said this in an earlier post cairnes but wouldnt it be clearer if we simply named the batsmen on the balcony bat 3, bat 4 etc?
the public 1to 11.... are 5 and 6 connectable? maybe a walkway could connect them.
england are challenging australia, not is.
feidling should be fielding
12th man wouldnt bring drinks onto the field of play during tea.
union jack (flag) and australian flag would be better seeing as they are the 2 teams.
what about a link from the police room to the police?

I don't know where you learned your English :shock:
it's definatly is. Are is used if the first noun is plural...
ex: the English are challenging austrailia
The British are coming
NOT: a kangaroo are jumping the fence
still, if you are going to correct somebody, know what you are talking about :shock:

Brian i don't know what map you're looking at, but version 2 has some of these fixed. Please F5 to refresh your browser.
The piublic are 1 to 11, and i will connect 5 and 6, but i think it might have to be behind the media centre.
I'm not in favour of simply Batsman 1 to 12 in the Pavillion.
A. It doesn't tell anyone who hasn't played cricket before anything about the actual names of positions that each person holds and is therefore eductational
B. mixing them up alpahbvetically like they are now at least gives players the opportunity of not getting confused in their choice in the drop lists too much apart from Batsman 1 to 4
There is a ink from the police room to PC3...its the blue line around the edge of the field running in front of Sheial to Alex.
I had changed the title to read....It's drinks on Day One, so there is no probs with 12th man being on the field.
Where is "feidling" i thought i had changed that?
I think "is", "are" and "has" are all OK in the title. Makes english sense to me.
The Flags, well ok, but where do you want them. ON top of the Pavillion?

what are you talking about?
the wording is.... England is challenging Australia. (that is wrong grammer)
England being a singular country, your reckoning is that somehow there are more than one. depends on the context.
England are challenging Australia is correct. they are a team. "they" infers more than one entity.
England is a beautiful country is also correct. England as a whole is singular

Perhaps i simply need to change it to read
England is fielding and 12th man has drinks. Australia is challenging England with fine batting.
How's that. Everyone is now in the present tense of the verb "to be" :)

Yeah, this guy doesn't have very good grammer, but he won't listen to me, or other logical thinking for that matter, so you might as well change it

England is still nit plural though, and that the only way are could be used

Version 3.
Added:
1. Some more impassable walls mainly around the media centre and police room to ensure there is no doubt as to what borders what
2. the picket fence all around the boundary, with gates only at PC3, the line into the police room, and into to Pavillion.

Adjusted:
1. The legend, the reference to the home of cricket has been removed, so there is no issues possibly arising later on
2. the legend has been fleshed out a bit to give some eye space.

ummm....
Why are the police on the feild?
Whatever, I don't really know cricket and don't understand this really at all. How do the fielders connect?
What does the title mean?
What does a a six attack?
Why are there so many bars?

edit: just noticed the streaker, that eplains the police

The legend says "All members of the Fielding Team link automatically with each other via ball throws (which in CC speak means they can all attack each other)
captain..., Please go the page 1 of this thread, i've added some info to help those who don't understand.
What does the title mean?
If you're referring to Silly Mid-On, it's a field position and placed in the title to make it catchy and a bit of fun.
What does a a six attack?
Any bordering spectator
Why are there so many bars?
Those are simply the way the field is cut, same as in baseball that i have seen. But i will reduce the opacity of that later.

Good.

Along with shapes and symbols, much more vivid color would be helpful and eyecatching for somebody browsing thru the maps. Your bland pastels are really the only thing I don't like about the majority of your maps.
