Well, I can honestly say I never would've thought of this idea.

Something I want to know is:

How would you incorporate bonuses into this map? I'm not really seeing a way to do so right now

I can see some shapes in there that kinda represent the some animmals...i like the idea of using the shapes

Perhaps the shapes could be smaller, and you could use some of the river systems as impassables between regions.

Issue being i wouldn't want to include an animal in any region where it wasn't found i.e. platypus in WA or NT

anyways just some other ideas in the pot...., i look forward to see what becomes of this!

tbh, i didn't do this all by myself. i was doing a wooden jigsaw with my daughter on the weekend of this and thought it could be interesting as a map here. Image Image

what i was thinking is the larger animals could be territories much like states or provinces traditionally are. the kangaroo, wallaby, osterich and koala would contain 3 or 4 terits and most other animals 2 with the bush rat only 1 terit.

that would give about 36 terits and 15 bonus regions.

in a way that already happens here. the image of the koala is not in a map of africa and the image of the osterich is not in a map of south america. all the images are where there are found (broadly speaking), which is australia. :D

as for moving them around i am a rather terrible artist. that image in the 1st post took me 6 hours and i was following natty's GIMP Basics guide at the time. the way i see it is if one animal is moved then others will have to be too, and reshaped, or replaced - in order to get the australian coastline with no internal dead space. that is beyond my meager skills.

I like it! Bonuses and borders would be simple but the map would stand out and be enjoyable for sure.
