I tried changing the circle whiteness, or making the map more transparent, but neither made it easier. I'm mostly having trouble differentiating 2s/3s/5s.

If you'd like to take a look, the game is at http://www.conquerclub.com/game.php?game=13922557, but if it's only me who's having trouble maybe I just need to go to the eye doctor :) Thanks for responding!

The star and oval are a little close together, but no they don't attack each other.

I liked the design of the map and the capital dynamic.

I didn't like how it is sometimes unclear as the what borders something else; I understand it is highways or other dotted lines, but I also keep wanting to think if the bubbles are touching then the territories should too.

Wonderful job !


The same of LUX....i really fall in love with your map...a 8 players map with awsome fun.

The capital were the thing id like the most..the bonus holding state and capital bonus are a good part for loving your map.
I see that many players had problem with bubble touching ??? i havent ...no problem to understand where i can attack ...Its a map that i can plan a good strats and analyse the other players options.

2 things i would like : ((( or i havent appreciate )
- 1 more airport with a different color.i understand that alaska and hawai are far from the main country,so adding another would be strange, i know.
- in rocky mountains only the 25 INTERSTATE can connect NE,SD,ND district.....maybe there is no highway that connect them for real,but there is few acces route to reach those districts/state if you came from south.

hope my english is clear :-(

Well there is interstate 29 that could be added, but it would only connect Sioux Falls to Sioux City to Omaha. Maybe he could change Aberdeen to Watertown and Devils Lake to Grand Forks and then have it run the rest of the way up. Of course that would change the balance in there, giving ND another border. (Not that anyone is going to hole up in ND and expect to really benefit from just the single border in the long run ;) )

I LOVE this map and have been playing the Beta and having a good time. I have only read about half of this thread, so I'm sorry if these have been addressed, but a few comments:

1- I live in Hawaii, so when we say "Waimea" out here the first thing most Hawaiians think of is Waimea bay surf spot on Oahu. The second thing we think of is Waimea cowboy town on the Big Island. The third thing we think of is Waimea canyon on Kauai. Nobody really thinks of Waimea town on Kauai. I would humbly suggest you use Lihue for Kauai, as it fits your Hawaiian town theme better (it is a port town with an old harbor just like Honolulu, Hilo and Lahaina).

2- Lahaina's troop oval isn't placed where the town actually is, but I can understand not wanting to move it west as it would cover too much of the smaller islands of Molokai and Lanai. No big deal, just being nitpicky.

3- I kind of liked the interstate bonuses. I know they seem to have been replace with the +2 for every 2 capitals, and that makes perfect sense to me. I was just wondering if we could also have another bonus for holding the whole interstate in each region. For example, a +4 for holding I20 in the Southeast. Or a +1 for holding I25 in the Southwest. This is just a spitball/brainstorm idea, I agree that the map currently works with the Interstate bonuses as they are now, the regional Interstate bonuses would be sort of an homage to the old regional maps (which pale in comparison to this one, btw).

GOOD WORK!

Posting for the march challenge. I love how big this map is and the number of bonuses available. I especially like how the gameplay is with the trench setting active.

I do not like how hard it is to read some of the bonus values, as well as how every airport does not connect.

I can't believe this one's still in Beta. I've been playing on it for a while, and I really like it for quads. It's so open and roomy, with plenty of places to expand into. I like it far better than the individual map packs.

For 1v1, it's a bit too vast, and not really to my tastes. Also, the lack of some connections is weird, although I imagine that's an artifact of the original map packs, and it would be hard to hold any of the bonuses if all the cities were connected. I'm originally from Alabama, and it's weird to me that Tuscaloosa and Tupelo aren't connected, or Montgomery and Atlanta. I've driven on I-85 more than any other interstate in the US, and it's not even on the map. Neither is I-59 heading north from B'ham, but of course only some of the highways are shown.

So like nearly all of our maps, they're not completely accurate geographically in favor of playability, and I'd rather have a fun map to play on than one that has my favorite interstates on it (but at least I-20's depicted). =)

This is a great map, it's nice to finally have a playable US map.

I like that some of the airports connect but not all do, the only thing I'd mention is that with a 5 neutral on there that's a heavy price for a territory that doesn't grant me a bonus, especially considering with all the state capitols out there the airports aren't very effective at moving from one side of the country to the other. The state capitols tend to bottle neck because they have 5 neutrals.

I would suggest lowering the airports to 4 or even 3 neutrals, and the map is difficult to read but I understand there's a lot of information. Could you pull Warwick, RI a little to the right I keep thinking it's connected to Hartford, CT and the interstate symbol right there only makes it harder to tell.

Once again great job I know this was a big undertaking!

Response resulting from BetaMarch 2014 (Official Monthly Challenge)

Thing you like about the map
- Great representation of the US with all states and major cities represented. CC needed this.
- Bonuses aren't too easy to obtain from the start, or concentrated in a single area. In fact, I still haven't found a single best starting point. This is important for such a big map with many neutrals.
- Exclusion of impassibles and availability of airports are critical for maps of this size. This gives players free run.
- Everything seems logical and well thought out - starting values, bonus sizes, etc.

Thing you dislike about the map
- There is so much going on that it looks messy at first glance. You have to get to know the map and play it to become comfortable.

Thanks for the beta march challenge. I never gave it much thought but I do shy away from joining beta map games.

I really like the USA 2.1 map now that I've played a few games. I must say I thought it looked a bit cluttered at first, but it has grown on me. I think the Interstate bonuses would be better for holding the entire route. By giving a bonus for every 2 capitols you make it too easy to get that plus a regional bonus for holding capitols. I really like the airports as a jump between regions. This makes holding them/guarding against them a nice strategy consideration.

Thanks!

What I like about this map

Everything! I love this map. It's my favorite map on the site. The graphics are simple, but attractive. The bonuses are small but there is a LOT of them for the taking. It has the right number of airports to cause havoc to those who don't realize their strength, but not to many to be the cause of chaos. It's rules and bonus's are easy to understand yet leave plenty of room for strategy. Awesome map! My thanks to whoever created and implemented it.

What I don't like about this map

Nothing really. If I had to make a suggestion, it would be to limit the number of troops per turn that could move from one airport to another. And I'm not even certain I would suggest it. Outside of that, it's perfect, I love it.

isaiah40, if you can, I think you should post there and explain your reasons and all the "unsaid things"
I tried but i think nothing would be better than a mapmaker's reply.

thanks

I think it could work quite well as one. With this map "USA 2.1" staying an 8 player map.

=D13=

I wonder if this suggestion could be brought to the light of day.

A simple graphics improvement could be to put a picture in the background?

It would fit the style of the other USA maps, eg:

Click image to enlarge.

It obviously has to be quite faded and in just the right place to not make the map look more cluttered, but it should make it look more appealing and less clinical?
