Why does ADL R border BDT tho? BDT only has O and V next to it's name on the map implying it is linked to those stations on the O and V lines but nothing about R, while PGA on the other hand lists R, G, and I next to the territory name definitely noting that it links to those stations on the R, G and I lines? What I'm saying is that BDT needs something next to it to say it is connected to the R station or the xml must be updated because those territories are not supposed to be linked.

Actually, you may have a point...
Both BHL and BDT are connected to ADL R along yellow dotted lines; this would suggest that these stations could have 'R' indicators; although the indicators are there to denote the bonus groupings rather than connections. There is some ambiguity, for sure; but I'm not convinced there are any actual errors :-k

For comparison, TNC and ISA are clearly connected, although neither station shares any bonus/line indicators.

Well my response would be that ADL R and BDT are not clearly connected, I could understand why ADL O is connected because of the proximity and link but PGA links to three territories on "the wheel" and has G, I, and R on the territory name, while BDT only links to two - I find it ambiguous without map inspect to infer that BDT borders ADL R while the bonus structure infers PGA links to those areas on ADL, nothing really shows why BDT does not - why doesn't BDT also hit three of the territories on "the wheel"? I bring this up because in a clan game my partner and I disputed whether the territory BDT could hit ADL R or whether BOB was wrong because he does not use BOB and relies on the map solely to determine connections

Okay... cairnswk has addressed this, but I STILL have a question. so, let me restate the issue and explain.

For what reason can Broken Hill (BHL, I&N routes) attack Adelaide R (ADL R) as well as ADL I?
For what reason can BDT O&V attack ADL R?

This seems to be a bug solely with ADL R having extra connections. By what APPEARS on the map, it should connect ONLY to the other 3 ADL stations, and PGA (G,I,R).

I was going to mention this too.


Of course they border....they are all encompassed with the ADL station, therefore it makes sense that that BDT and BHL would border.


If this is the case, Why do not ALL ADL stations border EVERY adjacent station?

Specifically:
PGA (G,I,R) only borders ADL G, ADL I, and ADL R. *not* ADL O, which is "encompassed with the ADL station".
BHL (I,N) only borders ADL I and ADL R. *not* ADL O or ADL G, both of which are "encompassed with the ADL station".
BDT (O,V) only Borders ADL O, and ADL R. *not* ADL G or ADL I, both of which are "encompassed with the ADL station".

I'm sorry, but the logic is inconsistent.

I don't think that O/V-BDT should connect to R-ADL. Same thing with I/N-BHL now that I look at it. The only station that is labelled R that connects to ADL (and hence should border R-ADL) is G/I/R-PGA.

Wow.

EDIT: This appears to have had a discussion before, and was just never changed.

Haha, yeah I didn't read even this page. Simple fix, right? Not sure you even need the mapmaker for a minor XML change that's consistent with the map, or am I wrong about that? Probably moot anyway because cairns is pretty good about keeping on top of this stuff.
