I understood the XMl is OK, so when does Beta happen?

Soon! I have to get the files compressed just right so we don't lose too much detail, and then send them off. Give me 2 or 3 more days to get that done.

So that being said:

Last Call

The map has passed through rigorous gameplay and graphics examinations and all major concerns have been addressed, the xml has been checked and stamped. So, If you have any other concerns, please make your voice heard.
If after a reasonable amount of time there has not been any objection or protest, the map will be stamped and submitted for the Beta period.

Please, post questions and concerns if any.

According to blakes spolier on twitter, it's in the works.

That being said, the files have been sent, and we are waiting for them to be uploaded! :D

          Beta - Quenching

---The development period has concluded for the 1588 Spanish Armada Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Beta Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for BETA Play. After an extended period of time in BETA and once all quirks and issues have been resolved, the map will be put into Full Play (barring any Admins or Foundry Foreman vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

              Image


While the map is in BETA Play, there are a couple of administrative tasks that are required of the mapmaker(s) in addition to the initial gameplay testing:
    1. Please ensure that the first post of the thread contains all the necessary information to help future visitors to the development thread; it's particularly important to ensure the most recent images are there, along with any helpful guides (such as gameplay quirks/nuances or the location/size of any starting neutrals etc.)
    2. It is the responsibility of the mapmaker(s) to ensure that they respond to further feedback in a timely and constructive manner.
    3. Write a "creative" map description and send it to the Foundry Foreman via PM. You're encouraged to post it into the first post of the thread as well; the description will be used to populate the maps database.

Game 13102017 Green gets 6? Margate Land Bonus is getting 0. What do we need to get the extra 1? Everyone else gets 7.

It looks like Margate LB should be given a +1, but is given +0

Agreed. Even with doubles and triples it may be "go first win" map.

Re: 1588 Spanish Armada [27.6.13] V39 BETA

Postby cairnswk on Fri Aug 16, 2013 1:53 pm

i think the Monarch conditionals are not programmed correctly

it says: A Monarch region (M) can be assaulted only if you hold both Bow & Stern of same Commander’s Ship

so using BOB, placing the cursor over my command ships which i hold both regions of...
i can attack all M positions, and i don't tink that is what should happen

according to the instructions, because it says "a M region can be assualted only if you hold both B&S of SAME commander's ship.
so if i hold both B&S, i should not be able to see the M positions of other command vessels unless i also hold them entirely

ergo one command ship should only be able to assault it's own M position

EDIT: after checking the latest file on the previous page ...V3.xml
i found this
Code: Select all

<territory>
   <name>San Lorenzo Bow</name>
   <borders>
      <border>San Lorenzo Stern</border>
      <border>El Crucifijo</border>
      <border>GL (D)</border>
      <border>Don Diego Medrano M1</border>

      <border>Ld Henry Seymour M1</border>
      <border>Sir William Winter M1</border>
   </borders>
   <bombardments>
      <bombardment>Zúñiga</bombardment>
      <bombardment>SS Sáo Luis</bombardment>
      <bombardment>Sáo Filipe</bombardment>
      <bombardment>GL (E)</bombardment>
      <bombardment>GL (C)</bombardment>
      <bombardment>GL (B)</bombardment>
      <bombardment>Ciervo Volante</bombardment>

      <largex>923</largex>
      <largey>354</largey>
   </coordinates>
   <neutral>2</neutral>
</territory>


There is no conditional in it.
Also i beleive the San Lorenzo Bow should only border the Hugo De Moncado M position if the both bow and stern of San Lorenzo are held by same person....i.e. too many borders in the xml for bow and stern position.

Should not this be the xml for this conditional function?
Code: Select all
<territory>
   <name>San Lorenzo Bow</name>
   <borders>
      <border>San Lorenzo Stern</border>
      <border>El Crucifijo</border>
      <border>GL (D)</border>
      <border condition="San Lorenzo Command Ship">Hugo de Moncada M1</border>
   </borders>
   <bombardments>
      <bombardment>Zúñiga</bombardment>
      <bombardment>SS Sáo Luis</bombardment>
      <bombardment>Sáo Filipe</bombardment>
      <bombardment>GL (E)</bombardment>
      <bombardment>GL (C)</bombardment>
      <bombardment>GL (B)</bombardment>
      <bombardment>Ciervo Volante</bombardment>
   </bombardments>
   <coordinates>
      <smallx>829</smallx>
      <smally>318</smally>
      <largex>923</largex>
      <largey>354</largey>
   </coordinates>
   <neutral>2</neutral>
</territory>


Also, i think this is missing !
Code: Select all
<!-- losing conditions -->
<requirement>
    <name>Any non-treasury region + either Bow or Stern of a command Ship</name>
    <components>
         <continent>Non-Treasury Region</continent>
         <continent>Bow (B) or Stern (S) of a Commander's Ship</continent>
    </components>
    <required>2</required>
</requirement>
<!-- end losing condition -->
