This is a very good idea.

For the record, i posted here the xml only so you be able to see what i did. I don't like to touch someone else file because it creates only confusion. This was an exception case and i did the changes only to fix an important issue that has slipped away (that's the proof that we need the tool and so it needs to be updated). It was done only to give back the map to the people ;)

For the current fix, plese nolefan with the file post here what you changed. I saw gilligan solved the prometheus issue moving it, right? (I didn't checked it very well). If i'm right there could be small problem....we need to close the map to upload the new files, wait all active games end.

apparently the prometheus issue was something else. Nole and I checked it this morning and it works at the bottom, which confuses me because of the timestamps of the uploaded xml and when pamoa attacked the entrance without prometheus. All in all it didn't solve it, just confused as to why the timestamps contradict each other.

Ok, now that we appear to have all the bugs solved, here are some GP issues I've noticed:

- I think Pegasus' should be n2 or n3. It's too easy with decent dice in the first round or two to break into your opponents territory and end the game. I wouldn't be opposed to even making it n4.
- Medusa appears to be completely ignored in most games. Perhaps increase the bonus for holding her to a +4? Maybe even higher, since there is no easy way to get to her, and she is surrounded by killer neutrals.
- While the spears are a nice touch, they are practically useless. They don't bombard any regions of significance and tend to be completely ignored. Perhaps if the Minotaurs were increased, they would be worth grabbing and then some importance would be added to the spears.
- This is kind of a major graphics change as well, but what about perhaps adding sirens along the bottom and top rows, so that bonus is available to people stuck in the corners?

Just throwing some ideas out there. Honestly, I didn't think I would like playing this map that much when it was first released, but I find myself enjoying it, and thus the suggestions :D

Quick question - is the Prometheus bit fixed for ongoing games or will that be implemented in the future?

Thank you!

It's already in effect for games started now. As far as games started when it wasn't in effect, I don't know how those will be affected.

And the only graphics change is the small map now has the missing food.

Agree on a neutral 2 for now.
nolefan5311 wrote: Medusa appears to be completely ignored in most games.

She is very close to the middle and only really accessible by the corner entrances or a player coming from the corner. Raising the bonus will not get her into play faster IMO. Leave this for now and we can look at it later when ,ore games have finished.
nolefan5311 wrote:While the spears are a nice touch, they are practically useless.

They are not useless. The spears are not their for a way to block or attack, the idea behind them is to give you the ability to see far away. You take one in trench, then they are more than powerful. All game types have been thought of here. :P
nolefan5311 wrote:Perhaps if the Minotaurs were increased, they would be worth grabbing and then some importance would be added to the spears.

Then the corners have a huge advantage over the centres in larger games.

That is not only a huge graphics change but also game play as well. The sirens give a +2 with another slave entrance close by and a large neutral to take. The corners have the minotaurs for a +1 but lower neutral. I am opposed to this.

I have to lock the map again. This time to update it. If we don't do in this way the current ongoing games will be messed up.
So this is what we are going to do:
- Lock the map
- Wait current games end
- Update the xml
- Unlock the map again.

Locked now.
