I mean, I France turned the war around and invaded Prussia than it would have been doing extremely well, the double bonus reflects this. I dunno... I'm uncertain as how this might play out in the XML and whether or not the XMl will allow it to only be awarded once. If any XML experts can give me some thoughts on this let me know.
I won't claim to be an expert, but I think getting the "With ..." bonuses awarded only once is a matter of using "super-continents" and setting overrides.
It is a little fussier to code when the extra amount to award for the "With ..." zone depends on the base zone it is combining with. For example, Elsaß Lothringen adds one to the three for L'Empire des Français, but adds two to the two for Preußische Provinzen von Rhein. So, when you have them all, what should you get? Clearly three for L'Empire des Français plus two for Preußische Provinzen von Rhein, but the extra could be one, two, or three. (Heck, if you wanted, you could make it even more, but I don't see why you would.) Decide what outcome you want and I can code it up for you.
It is a little simpler to code if the "With ..." bonus is the same no matter what base zone it goes with and is only awarded once, because I think it can then be done without overrides, but simpler code is no reason to set the bonuses that way.
I'm not RJ, but It looks good to me (just north of Romagna, right?). I would do the same sort of thing on the German map as well: some of those rivers almost seem cut off from the sea (the branch nearest Königsberg is the worst offender).Industrial Helix wrote:RJ- I ran a blur on the river into the sea... let me know how you think it is. It seems better to me, but another set of eyes are always appreciated.
