I wrote that OVER 5 MONTHS AGO. I was trying to be sarcastic and should have put "?" after each sentence.

Plus read the rest of the post. I clearly say there is a piece of land in between.

Oh and Stop bumping dead threads. :evil:

Similar to my request on AoM, can this XML be reduced?? By what I gathered from that thread, continents can't be included as components. But can territories??? If so, that would reduce this XML as well.

(By the way, I'm looking at creating a map with a friend, and I would be the one doing the XML, which is why I've been trying to pick up on things.)

/agree

This map is a beauty. Everything about it is exemplary of what CC maps should be. Bonuses are perfect, gameplay is perfect, there is excellent scope for moving around, and the graphics are outstanding. Well done WM and Coleman

I think I encountered a bug in this map while playing a doubles game. 'This is Game 5586032 round 4. I wanted to reinforce from Ottawa to Lake Erie. I held Ottawa and Cleveland. My partner held Toronto, Windsor, Buffalo, Erie, and Lake Erie. This creates a path. The map would let me reinforce to Toronto only. Is there another reason for this?

You cannot fort past your partners first territory in a line. It is the way all maps work with forting.

I did not know this and the Game instructions do not state this http://www.conquerclub.com/public.php?mode=instructions3. I will create a separate post for this to be updated.

The Great Lakes

Postby rdsrds2120 on Fri Dec 25, 2009 5:33 pm

I was wondering if we could alter the XML of The Great Lakes Map a bit. I love the map, but when I play i find it's far too easy for someone to start with a bonus holding the lakes. I was going to suggest making them starting points. How do the rest of you feel about it?

Well, I realize that this is an old map, but it seems like the positioning of the numbers is off. When players start to get 3-digit troop counts, the numbers appear to be left aligned, rather than centered, over the territ circles.

See Game 10990981 for an example. Every time I look at my Goshen territ, I panic thinking it's been reduced to 13 rather than 131.

It's like that on every map. Unless you're saying that it's poorly position because it's on the border of Goshen and Toledo/Dayton
