Why can't you put it in a size that can be read instead of mumbling under your breath.
OMG...you know what i darnwell mean...my correction then...why is Manhattan south of Bronx.

Because I want to correct any potential misinformation without polluting the thread with irrelevant offtopicalness. But I certainly understand what you mean.

Yes, anyway...

Also some of these bonuses seem egregiously high, even to a greater degree than Sydney Metro. Can you justify giving +5 for 3 territories in National Parks, or +4 for 3 in SE Suburbs? Is there any mechanism in place to prevent those bonuses from being dropped initially?

[Moved]

Alas! Two fortnightly review periods have passed without any updates or meaningful engagement from the mapmaker(s),therefore the map is considered stalled. If the mapmaker wants to continue with the map, then one of the Foundry Moderators will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system, after an update has been made.

I'm wondering if there would be any "demand" for this to enable continued development to occur.
I'd like to continue working on it.

We already have a Sydney metro map so I don't think another Sydney map is what I want to see the most. It's unique in location though because it portraits more of Sydney then the other Sydney map so I'm not saying it shouldn't be allowed to be done, just voicing my opinion that maybe another map like this isn't very interesting when there are so many other beautiful cities that haven't got a map yet. A Paris map would be much more interesting I think!!

Gillipig, thanks for your comments. :)
I could say exactly the same thing about all the USA maps and all the Europe maps etc etc.
While this one has similar road style graphics to S Metro, the game is casual, easy and classic, and that's what i would like to portray for Classic City: Sydney, hence why i used this map.
Metro was never meant to be a Classic Sydney map and I have no intention of renaming Metro such.
Yes a Paris map would be probably as interesting depending on the slant, but perhaps other will do that one. :)

Just a heads up, I'm gonna sticky your maps for now. In my opinion they're looking good and I hope you continue to work on them. But the people in the Main Foundry are a little burdened at the moment.

With the new title, only the opera house looks better. For some reason, the mountains look fuzzy, the bridge looks the right shape but without any detail, it could be drawn by a two year old. Having the opera house larger, it may be out of scale, but now you can see it clearly so works better than before.

Postby chapcrap on Fri Feb 17, 2012 2:17 am

I agree that the new title is improved.

Second, it is spelled KAYAK, not KYAK.

I also know that IH brought this up long ago, but it seems a lot of the roads are really unnecessary.

The 4 Parks and Mountains bonuses are very similar in color, it's difficult to tell which one is which from the key. And the names of the regions for Hazelbrook, Springwood, and Lapstone make it difficult to tell where the region is actually at. Maybe it will be easier with the troop numbers, but right now, it looks kind of scrunched up.

What is the reason for making BM National Parks raised? None of the regions look like this and it just looks a little strange by itself.

good
For some reason, the mountains look fuzzy,

the mountains look fuzzy because that's how they are and why they're called the Blue Mountains. It is created by the eucalyptus oils in the air from the valley floors.
the bridge looks the right shape but without any detail, it could be drawn by a two year old.

Well for that size (small) i don't know if I'd want any more detail because it probably wouldn't show, as for a 2 yo...did somebody infest you with their barberous tongue today :shock:
Having the opera house larger, it may be out of scale, but now you can see it clearly so works better than before.

The opera house isn't meant to be large so that size is appropriate as a vista through the bridge. :)

PS. koontz1973...the software i use for this is Fireworks. It does not allow fine point lines like PS or CD or AI.
1 point lines are the lowest i can achieve. There is quite some detail in the bridge actually, it's simple hidden behind one front layer because this small version doesn't allow it to shwo the larger detail. :)

:oops:

yes i understand, but i wanted to show the main aterial roads around sydney and tie this in with the other Sydney Metro map.


The 4 Parks and Mountains bonuses are very similar in color, it's difficult to tell which one is which from the key.

Sorry, but to me they're miles apart, but i'll see if i can do something to calarify them better.

And the names of the regions for Hazelbrook, Springwood, and Lapstone make it difficult to tell where the region is actually at. Maybe it will be easier with the troop numbers, but right now, it looks kind of scrunched up.

I agree it is scrunched up but then the territory indicator lines are missing from this map :roll: ...now where the hell did they go.

What is the reason for making BM National Parks raised? None of the regions look like this and it just looks a little strange by itself.

Ah, because they are actually mountains that sit behind a 40 mile almost flat plain...that's why they're raised :)
