Unfortunately at the moment the city bonus is not working at all. The correct file has been sent, and as soon as it' uploaded the problem should be fixed.

[MERGED]

This should have been rectified with the new xml which was uploaded recently. I will keep an eye on it and see if it is truly fixed. If not then I submit that we close the map to prevent any further games to start until we can get the xml fixed properly.

Yeah! Looks like the City bonus, and the Liang North city tag have both been fixed. Thanks everyone for the patience and help.

So what xml file is currently being used, just so we can make sure to keep track.

The latest one posted by Gilligan on Aug 7th! Since I closed the map for the time being to fix the max starting region problem, I am getting with rds and gilligan to test the xml and variations thereof to see if we can get it fixed. ;)

Yeah I saw that, which is pretty much what we need to do, but you are speaking of Israel, correct. This one, TKoC, is good to go as far as I can tell.

Seamus...our game...

Southern Shu
5T/3D/4A/2N...shows in my calcuator as +3

compared to Riverland Shu +4 which has two cities for ano0ther +1 effectively making it +5

...yeh something is way out of balance there IMO.

Wuh Jin seems OK at +2

Riverland Shu at +4 is fine, but it gets +1 atop that for two cities, im almost thinking it could be brought back to +3

just my two cents worth.

Ok...well that makes the last 10 months of working on the map worth it. I'm not exactly sure what you were expecting, or looking for. Not every map coming out these days has to be "special", with some crazy bonus system, or conditional border, etc. Old and new players are always looking for variety when it comes to simple, yet aesthetically pleasing maps, and I'd like to think this map fills that need.

But really, I'm sorry you feel the map is lacking something, I wish you would have participated in the thread more, so you could have helped influence the map in a way that more players might enjoy. This map is pretty pretty much done, but there is a whole foundry full of maps that are in need of expert opinions, so please join the cause to help make those maps the best they can be...before it's too late like this one. :cry:

Even though gameplay is similar to many other maps, I still think that this map is worth being live. Classic gameplay maps run this site...and the graphics are good, too. Don't feel like your time was wasted, Seamus.

Sorry for the delay. I've been thinking about this as I play more games, and one thing I just noticed is that you mentioned Riverland having 2 cities, but it only has one. The other tert, Chendu is a capital, not a city. Given that do you still think it should be adjusted? I don't think it does, but let me know your thoughts.

my primary observation is that the capitals usually play no part in the game, most often remaining neutral throughout.

This is also my observation as well with the games I have played.

Two options for you to make them worth taking. I suggest you do both. Make holding them a winning condition. Very easy to add to the map and xml. Secondly, increase the bonus for holding all three to +6.

I agree as well. The only time they are taken is to gain the region bonus. I think there have been maybe 2 games I've played 1v1 where they have been taken, and never in a larger game.

I think something needs to be done, but how can you have it be a bonus and a victory condition at the same time? If you hold all three the victory condition would go into effect before the bonus, correct? So it's really one or the other. Personally a victory condition would be my last choice, with increasing the bonus being one of the top options.

One other option I'd throw out there, and personally like better, would be to make it +4 for holding 2, instead of 3. With them all starting 2n, and only needing to kill 4n to get +4, I think that makes them a whole lot more attractive to players. I think this would also make them more of an option in all game types, whereas a victory condition might be overlooked except for 1v1, where it's easier to hold.

Thoughts?

how about +3 for holding 2?and +4 for 3 stays?

The effort /risk of grabing only 2 instead of all 3 , is definitly more appealing then aiming for 3.

I like this, but does taking only 2 capitals for +3 make it too easy in 2v2, 3v3, etc.? Would a +2 for 2 and +4 for 3 not be as attractive? Either do you boys in blue have any specific thoughts?
