Just wanted to stop by quick and say I'm glad to see this project going. I think of the recent thematic series maps, this series is towards the top of list (ahem, even if I don't seem to play it! :)).

I tend to agree with Tisha and prefer her bridges, they're subtler and fit in better with the prevailing aesthetic and time period...

Visually the map is stunning, you've developed a really wonderful look for these Nations maps. The only gameplay thing that really jumps out at me is that the meso-america bonus might be a touch high, might be better as a +2 (especially since the harder-to-hold central andes bonus is a +2).

Re: First Nations of South America.. new bridges 11/07

Postby AndyDufresne on Sat Nov 07, 2009 11:30 am

Right, I can see what Incandenza is saying about the Meso-america bonus. It could probably go either way---I assume the current lean towards 3 reflects a desire for bonus diversity on the map (I.E. you have a bunch of two's already, and most likely didn't want to add another 2?). In addition to that, the map already seems to lean towards the higher bonus value (Chilean, Central Andes, Eastern Forest) so Meso-America probably has enough precedent for 3. But it is still something to consider, as Incandenza points out, because of it's starting position relative to other bonus zones.

As for the bridges---I like the style, though the color stands out. When you compare their "solidness" to the rest of the map (that is more mottled...the landscape, the mountains, the oceans) they look a little out of place. I'm not sure you can add the mottled effect to the bridges, since they are so small, but I'd like see if something can be done to bring them a little closer in feel to the mountains especially due to their dichotomy (but the landscape/ocean as well).

Fair enough, that's a valid argument ( :-^ certain other mappers). I still don't think they stand out enough on the map, though. Dark but translucent outer glow?

I think there is a difference between the color standing out vs the bridges standing out. Just so you know. ;)
