Bugger. Will get a park square there. Any other comments apart from that?

Good start. Something specific for the city would be nice. Now it could be almost any city.
Landmarks with touristic routes...
Monopoly of drug trades..
Gated communities with neutral guards.. Night clubs... Economic drivers.. etc..

You are right that it can be any city around the world but adding landmarks that no one has heard of would not help that. I also does not fit the current style of the map. The image on the left will have to suffice for now. The GP is different enough to warrant no GP gimmicks.

Version 2 has sorted out the 2 four way borders (these are not there in RL but on the map with the territ lines, they could cause confusion).
Different park set up - in the same style.

koontz1973, this is the map of BA i was going to do ages ago in my World Cities 12 Pack when size restrictions were still in place...
Image
Can i suggest rather than the cathedral you've got, since Argentina is reknowned for it, perhaps a couple doing el tango, or even an image of the wide boulevarde in BA.
Also, you could work in some freeways as impassables. Just suggestions.
I like the colours :)

Cairnswk, can do and if you do not mind, I will copy your idea of using 4 smaller pictures in the corners.

Please do if it works for you... :)

I like the top image, not sure what the bottom one is, or is that an extension of the top one?
Anyway early days yet. You may totally change your mind.

Changed the bottom image for you cairnswk and added the one on the right. I know the bottom left might be seen as risqué so if anyone objects, I will take it of. But one of the things that Argentina is famous for is beautiful ladies as well as the tango.
Also removed the auto deploy and changed the GP notes to show that everyone gets 2 territs to stop R! knock outs.

Made the lady on the right larger to fill the top space.

Without being rude, but there are so, so many maps on this website - what new appealing dimension does this map add? As a new player, I can safely say that I was overwhelmed with the sheer number of maps on this website and to me, this looks like more of the same!

Sorry!!

Ok, I have to say, I think you're going to need a better bonus structure here...
