Show the image instead of the link in the thread and you will get more feedback. I like the idea but it needs further development.

Well, the biggest problem that smacks me right off is that so many towns are in the wrong places. New Boston that far west? Round Rock a seperate territory from Austin and so very far away?

Territories need to be redrawn and renamed before issues of style or connections or playability can be properly addressed.

What map is this? New Boston is farther east than Mt. Pleasant.

I MAY HAVE LOOKED AT THE MAP WRONG, I CAN CHANGE THAT BUT WHAT DO YOU THINK.

Well firstly you need tocrop the top off and move tha bannar down-theres a lot of empty space

try dimming some of the coulers down a bit

change the background so it doesent stand out so much, gray or brown would be good to try

also make it textured

apart from that, good map. looking forward to seeing how it goes

In east texas

Postby Kann on Mon Jan 15, 2007 2:46 pm

Here are a number of changes I would suggest; mostly renames....


New Boston should be Paris....
Mount Pleasant should be Texarkana...
Laredo is misspelled..
Leaky to Del Rio,,,
Crystal City to Eagle Pass
Lliberty to Baytown or possibly make an Island outthere that couuld be Galveston.
Orange to Beaumont
Big Spring is singular not plural.
Mieral Wells to Fort Worth
Port City is either Bay CIty or Port Lavaca
Either move the border or switch Amarillo and Panhandle...AMarillo is in other territory..(Perhaps use Dumas instead of Panhandle and redraw that)

really dont like the look of Mason.... Agree that round rock is an Austin suburb and shouldnt be used ..

Game play issues later, but there some problems there too...

not bad....

-text is too small, i have to squint to read it. (bigger map will give you more room)
-too much green space around the outside. increase the size of the playfield in the overall map.
-two yellow 'continents' are too similar in color. maybe make one more orange or more brown?
-text in the legend should have a stronger outline, its hard to read against the white background

It's not just New Boston and Mt Pleasant--it's nearly every town on the map. You should completely redraw the territories with a more precise map.

However, I definitely think Texas should have its own map. It's like a whole other country, as they say.

I don't think it needs to be called Texas Wars, unless it's actually about some war that happened in Texas. It's out of sync with the other maps on the site.

what do you plan to do with the "lonestars"? are they there to signify something? also, make the barbed wire more visible, i can barely see it

The more I think about it Galveston Island should be on any Texas map. It is historically significant and would remind players there is more to the state than desert....Id be glad to help you with ideas on realism.. Llived in 5 of your 7 regions at one time or another

I really like the trees bordering the Piney Woods and I also like the Mountains around the hill country, but I think the part further west w/ mountains should be changed to barbed wire. It's very flat out there, but certainly is ranch country. I also like the use of barbed wire seperating South Texas and the Gulf Coast, since that region is famous for King Ranch.
