Hello Koontz
Did you ever notice in a metro map, that de mores you leave the city center the more you pay for the ticket?
Well normally this is represented like this in circle zones.Thats how i got the idea.
Why do you ask about alcantara and cais do sodre?Are you talking about the neutrals, is that it?

The metro map zones looks wonderful, but I remember the first draft had a city shape to it. Having that city shape cutting of the zones in places would make it better.

As for the ferries, I was just wondering if the connections where true to life. If so, giving the ports a name would be nice as well. So when you get to the end of the line, you have to capture the port and then the ferry.

i Drew the river line now and ive abandoned the idea of having a real or underlined map on the background, it does not make sense since i want to focus on the metro lines.
Anyway i can draw a few straight subdivisions in those circle zones so i can grab your idea about having "X" stations inside an area for a bonus.

As for your ferries sugestion. Alcantara does not have a ferry station in real life, but as this map is in 2030 i can have anything i want :)
I think understand your idea about getting the station after the metro line(something like towns in baltic crusade?).Its a nice idea, but i dont want to overload the map it with more graphics, so it does not get more confusing.
Anyway i can try to think a solution for that

Ive updated the OP

Armandolas, a couple of admin things for you.

Title, needs to be changed to this.
Title of map - date of last update - version number - page of last update.
for you this will be
Lisbon Metro 2030 [29/1] V3 pg1/2

Secondly, when you post an update, put the old versions into [url][/url] tags and into a
show
tag. Post the new version in opening post and also into a new post with all changes done to the map. This will allow players to find the versions easier and comment on older versions as well.

As far as the new version, I am starting to like this one a lot. Keep up the good work.

Like you said public transportation is needed to avoid long chains of metro stations. What I would try is black lines.

Revert to neutral 1 is of course an option to encourage using them. Why neutrals and not normal territories? Only if they autodeploy +1, a starting neutral of 3 might make sense. Or think of other bonuses to connect the metro lines with public transportation lines. Holding all three busses for +2 or two ferries for +1?

Hello
Once again, thanks for input given

Ive made a few changes and get the connections done
I ve decided that Public transportation and conection metro station will start neut, but once u get them they will not revert to neutral.

Im thinking about an alternative bonus to make things even more diverse. Apart for the 3 same line conected stations bonus, ive divided the map in 4 separate circles/zones, so the ideia is , if you control "X" territs in that zone you will get "X" Bonus.

Graphically i think it looks cool and i dont want to overload it any more , so it does not get confusing

I hope you like it, and feel free to comment on what you like and dislike
Cheers

It still looks cool indeed. The public transportation style is okay I think. Maybe the grey line thickness could be a bit less to make them less prominent. How many neutrals do you have in mind?

The idea with a bonus for an amount of regions in a zone is not visible in the legend yet. Using zones is not really neccesairy. And other options are to bombard neignouring zones or to attack any region in the same zone.

Something to keep in mind is to have enough distance between army circles. Trying to put 888 number in the real size can show if it fits.

The legend does not need the coloured lines and might be a bit bigger.

I will get the numbers and reduce the thickness of grey lines, to see how it works.

I had in mind 3 or 5 Neutrals for pub transp and connection stations.

About the zones , the option of attacking territories in the same zone, i dont like it because it would ruin the feeling of travelling in a Metro, where u can only go from station to station.
Also i didnt put that bonus in the legend because it was just an ideia, not sure if it would add something nice to gameplay
About the bombardments maybe it would work if it was only between connection stations, and only from the same color(ex. connection station green/blue can bombard any connection stations with one of those colours)

Okay thanks for showing them. THe public transport lines are not so prominent anymore. I wonder what other people have to say about it.

The 888's are mostly to show if there is enough distance between army circles. Especially on the small map at Perque and Piceas it could become too crowded. If you can show that there is enough space for them, then there is no need to move the circles.

Armandolas, here is my problem, and my only problem is this: the map has no flair to it. No panache, style or substance. I look at it and think of ugly sister, when I so want to look at it and say pretty girlfriend.

You have tantalised me with a map that has zones, but what do I get for each zone? Gimme a prize.
Cobbles texture on the outside of the map, bring this into the map itself but make it complement it.

Thats why we are here to change,give suggestions, and make something out of this, to get better.

What do you mean with "No panache, style or substance"
I dont think think every map that comes forward must be a superduper hellokitty fantasy style.
Are you saying that u dont like the design or just saying that its just another "classic" map

Not that, as for the game play, that is normal and I can easily live with that. But it is just the overall look of the map. Don't get me wrong, it has all the starts for a great looking map and it may take a long time to finally nail down a look that you are happy with.

Here is an early version of the Paris metro map, this is where I see yours now. A nice map, good gameplay but something is missing.

And this is what it was just before binning.

As you can see, the overall look is not that much different. But the latest version had some small details that made the map stand out.
