Check the Game Log for this one.

2013-04-18 23:16:55 - Incrementing game to round 6
2013-04-18 23:17:28 - Jdsizzleslice received 6 troops for holding Washington

2013-04-18 23:17:55 - Incrementing game to round 7
2013-04-18 23:18:09 - Jdsizzleslice received 6 troops for holding Washington

2013-04-18 23:18:55 - Incrementing game to round 8
2013-04-18 23:19:30 - Jdsizzleslice received 6 troops for holding Washington

2013-04-18 23:19:55 - Incrementing game to round 9
2013-04-18 23:20:26 - Jdsizzleslice received 6 troops for holding Washington

Now, If I look correctly on the map, I see that Washington is only supposed to receive 3 troops, not 6. I assume this is a bug, or a XML error.

Washington is listed twice in the XML (as a bonus), so it's awarding double the bonus (instead of awarding the bonus twice). Merged in with the map thread for fixing.

Was this the one sent, because so far every issue was already fixed in that update

Currently playing in game 12646503 (sunny).

I hold all four maryland cities but am not getting a bonus there.

You don't have to hold DC to get a the MD bonus do you? Or am I missing something else?

Great map though! Thanks a bunch!

I think I let the American in me get away with putting DC in the Maryland bonus since that's where it is, but I think I remember isaiah saying it's supposed to be neither Maryland nor Virginia. I'll let him reply just in case.

Apparently Gilligan isn't so American. D.C. is not in Maryland as it is the District of Columbia, a separate area from Virginia and Maryland! :roll: :lol: So in short DC should not be part of the Maryland bonus!

Yup, those DCers won't be too happy if you lump em in with Virginia or Maryland...they definitely aren't in either. If many of them had their own way, they would be state #51!

Again, great map...thanks a bunch!

Hi. I don't know if it's too late to do graphical changes, but I wanted to point out that the bonus minimap at the top shows Indiana touching Missouri, when it doesn't in the main map (and indeed doesn't in real life either).

Other than that it looks good, from a graphical perspective. Some of the states are a little oddly shaped, but I understand there has to be a balance between readability and fidelity.

I find the Hawaii bonus on the minimap, in regards to how much the bonus gives, hard to read

Here are some troop counts I've observed that don't seem to align up with the circles/positioning of troop counts in other areas..... I circled the 4 I see in red.

Not sure how that happened, they were fine on the test site. I'll go through them, but it'll have to wait. Finals week here and it's crazy.

Just played my first few rounds on this map.

Route 66 on crack. Really liking it, 6 rounds in. Like learning my geography this way. Thanks to the makers.

One thing I noticed, though its very minor and I doubt few people will notice, but Waterville is south of Bangor, so switching the two territs would be slightly more accurate; but Im not sure how difficult that would be graphic-wise to implement.
