They're not big. Not small, either.


Are they supposed to be "3's"? They look an awful lot like 9's, especially on the small map. It's an easy fix and I think worth doing.
-carlpgoodrich

I'd have to disagree. And even if you think they do look like 9's, use some logic.


My point is that it is a possible source of confusion and there is no reason not to make a bit more of a gap in those threes. It confused Sharpsh00ter and when I looked at it I initially thought they were nines. Of course common sense tells you they are threes, but we don't want to make maps where people have to figure stuff like this out for themselves.

Edit: I just asked a few people in my office and they all thought they were nines.

And yes it would not hurt to clean up those three's in the bonus listing. Why even argue it?

Grassland was moved one px to the right on the small map and the Amexica bonus is corrected.

I want to request that New Jersey and Long Island have their numbers and names switched. The numbers should touch the territory, even slightly.

As it is now, it barely even registers that the territory is even there. Already on a team game on of my teammates couldn't figure out why he didn't get the Democrat Bonus until another teammate pointed out he didn't have long island.

Please fix this!

I had it that way at one time until Mr.Benn suggested to switch them around to how they are now. Give me a couple of days and I'll get them switched back around, plus try and fix the three in the legend so they look more like 3's than 9's. I'm in Canada so I can't do a lot.

Democrats Long Island and New Jersey names and circles switched around, and the 3's that looked a little like 8's are fixed on both maps.

If you've moved army circles, you'll need to update the XML too.

Once that's been done, please could you post the latest images and XML as [url] links. Cheers ;-)

I like the idea a lot. But i do think you should lower the bonus troops you get from territories. Like the Republicans get 4 troops for only 4 territories. I think it should be 2. Just lower the bonus troops by 1 or 2 for most of the territories.

It will stay at 4 because look at how many territories it borders. It may have 4 territories but it has 7 territories that border it, thus making it hard to hold. All the bonuses will stay as they are unless the majority says they are too high.
