I didn't make any major changes, just a few small things.
1. made the borders darker
2. made the river darker and more chalk-like
3. made the mountains purple like they were on Kap's version.

What do you guys think of it?

A rough to-do list for us tomorrow:
  • move some borders around
  • move some names around (this and ^ are to accomodate 100s mostly)
  • clarify Thurgau-Scheffhausen connection
  • clarify Bienne-Bern connection
  • get rid of mt. dots
  • extend Vaud mts. a bit North
  • change "North-East Switzerland" to "Northeast …"

wow nice start fo sho, i like the title sweet font, well hmm, instead of the grey borders, maybe put some mountians? i mean the reason switzerland is so inpenetrable is cause of those swiss alps, i would think it would give ur map a lil more realizum, the colors are all nice and distinguishable fo sho, looks good, nice start man..ah hmm maybe some like impassables some of those have a LOT of things u would hve to defend to hold, it is a mountainous country so thats what i got now, good stay bro

Very open map at present. I assume you're intending to add a few mountains in a country that is inundated with the Alps? The graphics otherwise are a good start.

have a look at positions of mountains in switzerland on websites, then add them in corrosponding positions, although they probably would go through and cover some whole territories, you cant be 100% accurate.
definitely immpassables as others have stated and you probably have also planned.
great graphics.

also, could there be some sort of bonus for holding Zurich - sorry, not sure about the spelling

i dont know much about switzerland, you could do some research into what kind of public transport they may use, i know that their trains are very accurate and very good, so you might want to include a train system to link some terits, or an underground system - like tube in london - and subway in the US. I also dont know about how many airports there are so i cant comment about linking terits with airports.
you could consider these and see what you think,

wouldn't everyone who played it get an overwhelming urge to make a peace treaty with their neighbours ?

why do you have 30 terts ? there are 23 or 26 cantons depending on whether you count the 3 sets of Halb-Kantone's individually or together.

definitely immpassables as others have stated and you probably have also planned.
great graphics.

thats basically what i plan

also, could there be some sort of bonus for holding Zurich - sorry, not sure about the spelling

why?
i dont know much about switzerland, you could do some research into what kind of public transport they may use, i know that their trains are very accurate and very good, so you might want to include a train system to link some terits, or an underground system - like tube in london - and underground in the US. I also dont know about how many airports there are so i cant comment about linking terits with airports.
you could consider these and see what you think,
interesting ideas, ill consider it

If you want that true Switzerland feel, then sure! :wink: :lol:

Because i wanted the number 30, so i added some cities as territories

v2

-Added mts using this map:
http://orbat.com/site/maps/map_files/sw ... rbases.gif
-Made bonuses using WM's Bonus maker
-Cut some of the text in half and brought them to the next line for neatness
-Brought the borders layer under the continent color layers, so that the glow around the borders are the color of the continent

Mts good or too shiny? Are they in a good spot?
Are the bonuses good?
Any gfx concerns?
Any game-play concerns?

still fairly open, thats ok though.
mountains are orange? why? they're not too shiney though.

i havnt taken a look at the bonuses because i cant see the whole image and i cba fixing my screen resolutions..
the map is a little dark, you could perhaps make it lighter and hold a poll to see whether people prefer lighter or darker.

what is this widow makers' bonus maker tool?
can you send me a link please?

The mountains are a good start. Yes, dull their orange-ness some, but I like the direction this map is going.

they look a little bit..."rusty". i dont think thats the colour to use, maybe try a little less red in them, reduce the R in the RGB menu and browse some colours there.
