This looks a lot like Indochina.

I can say right now this map isn't going to work at that size, but I think wider, not taller is the way to go. I know it might skew things but...

Anyway! Another choice would be to cut the territories down. Not that I mind 51 territories, but everything looks really small right now.

Right now it doesn't look like you have a good chance. It's usually a good idea to get some names down for countries and have them on the map before you introduce it to the foundry. Very few maps make it without that being done right when people are first able to comment.

quite nice, territories are a bit small and to make them larger people would have to scroll a lot
portugal is an awkward shape for cc

long, narrow maps make for bad game play because the winner is likely to be somebody who is lucky enough to start on one end or the other... in this case it will be won by whoever starts in algarve, because it's the only continent one could conquer and hold in the first few turns.

Also, the territories are too small for names and army circles. A map this small doesn't hold 51 territories very well, and making it bigger will make it hard to play because it won't fit on a screen.

If you do continue, move the title and legend to the side so you can expand the actual map within the image area. Other than that, I have no interest in helping with this map - sorry.

What if you instead made a map of the 16th Century Portguese Empire, including settlements in Brazil and western Africa? You could have sea routes between major ports in addition to land routes. It lends itself to an old navigational chart look, like the High Seas map was going for.

I like the idea of a Portugal map.

For now I will only make two comments as I am a bit short on time.

First 51 territories does not sound like a good number for a CC map. Maybe 42 or 48 if you want to make a bigger than usual map.

Second the map perspective. Better make it horizontal and not vertical so that when people play it they do not have to scroll the window all the time.

Good luck!

Very helpful comment as usual unriggable. When you make these statements please do say what's wrong with the bonuses and how they can be fixed or else just refrain from commenting. This is the kind of comment that irritates me and that does not help the foundry process in any way.

Islands

Postby bigas on Mon Apr 09, 2007 4:39 am

you could add both island groups Açores (9 islands) and Madeira (3)
Alentijo spells alentEjo
Lisbona is LISBOA

Good idea. I agree. Those are Portugal's overseas territories right?

I guess those could be added in an inset or something.

Nice to see a Portuguese poster on the foundry.

Yes...maybe he could create a territory each for the two archipelagos and then link them with the mainland to make the map less linear.
