ok, new map posted. i changed the look and feel a bit, wanted it to look more like an old map. map will only have 1 auto (trenton) instead of 5.

working on possibly adding some impassables. also need region names, and bonus amounts.

stay tuned...

I like the color scheme, and it gave me an idea for your impassables--how about urban legends like sewer alligators, rat kings, jimmy hoffa grave sites etc?

i believe region bonuses are determined by amount of lands bordering the region/routes to break bonus.

one of th emap guys can verify this but I thought that was standard formula

Try this. This is an excel spreadsheet to help with determining the bonuses.

they are pretty accurate, location wise. raritan is a little off, its big, would create too much of a bottle neck in the middle, and that area already is tight...

one thing you can do which would make it look nicer is to include the whole river but just add little bridges or something where you want people to still be able to cross. graphically it might work better

awkward...i dont know, I little blue line running across a terr or two and then just ending...just seems odd

You could add the capital as a country with an auto-deploy function. This would balance out the necessity of a good drop. Also,the rivers still look like that they were added on a whim... It's a good idea, it just needs some major work still.

Focus on your gameplay man, you've got a decent start, I'm from just across the river, and have a good understanding of Jersey. :) I wouldn't mind seeing a unique hook of the the dreaded New Jersey round-a-bouts worked into gameplay... lol

Regional names shouldn't be too hard to figure out. This should be a a decent place to start.

Image

Couple things for me for you to change:

Wildwood is further south, you know that.... change that territory to Ocean City or Sea Isle City

Gameplay wise I think you really need to breakup these rather large bonuses. North Jersey isn't too bad, but you can really rearrange South Jersey for better gameplay. Break off AC, Wildwood, Cape May and Vineland into a bonus probably just a +1 Burlington and the rest of central Jersey can become a new bonus at +2 or 3 and the rest of Southeast Jersey becomes a new bonus at likely +2 or 3.

Of course then being in north Jersey is gonna be hard to win a game.... you may have to think about combining a few of those smaller territories and bring down some of those values.

rivers looks good but the black bold lines between countries are too eye-catching, try a 2 pix line without disturbance, perhaps with an outer glow
as redbaron points, I also believe that you can split the southwest more up to some minor bonuses

I look forward to playing New Jersey
