Going back to the other day, I do prefer the river being cropped at the border like it appears now.

It's called contrast. The playable area is the main part of the map, therefore it has a higher saturation. All the rest are background elements, and thus secondary. Even the flag and title.

It would be easy to separate Hounslow, Ealing, Hammersmith, Kensington and Westminster. That gives you a 3 territ small continent in Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent. Put a motorway between Harrow and Barnet (M1) for an impassable. There are so many motorways, in London that you can use for impassables.


This is a good idea. I'll run it by Bruceswar to see what he thinks.

Ps. other gimp users might appreciate the feat I accomplished on this map:

I actually thought of a use for the "dissolve" -layer mode!

Oops... I forgot to redo the inner glows. Also adjusted the colour of the new bonus a bit.

So what is keeping the draft stamp for this one? Should be pretty straight forward...

How much practice does one need to move a topic from one forum to another? :-s

I want to make sure they know when a map is ready to be moved before they do it.

Hm, I think perhaps the bonuses could stand to be adjusted:
  • Northwest: +2
    • It's the smallest bonus area on the map, so people would go after it simply for that. Plus, it's not in a central spot (like North Central, which also has two more territories) and it makes it and West really attractive (still 5 borders, but +8)
  • North Central: +3 √
  • Northeast: +4
    • 4 borders and easy access to the City, which wouldn't add a border, either.
  • West: +5 √
  • Southwest: +3 or +4
      4 borders, but Lambeth does bring it down to 3. With no real great expansion opportunities (aside from Lambeth), I could see this going either way.
  • Southeast: +3
    • 3 borders and easy access to the City, which wouldn't add a border, either.

Maybe... those sound pretty good, although I'd rather keep Northeast at +5.

Fair enough, that was a little more iffy than the others. With 7 territories, it's borderline.

I've stickied this for now, so hopefully one of the FA's will see this and move it. *hint, hint*
