Definitely one of my favorites graphically. The legend is well organized, the map has a nice crisp, cleanness about it, and I really like how you used colored territory names to distinguish the bonus areas, and how the territory colorings/textures are more reflective of what the surface legitimately is. Not to mention the badass sign, signature, mountain, and skyline. Love it, love it, love it!

Actually, one thing.

Can you change "Rose gardens" to "Rose Gardens" in the XML? As soon as I realized it, my eye was drawn to it and I couldn't even pay attention to the map anymore. :lol:

Haha. I will make a note to change that.

I'm also considering dropping each MAX bonus down by one. The stops are vulnerable in large games, but in smaller games, they can be easily blocked by neutrals and too easy to capture for such a large bonus.

Thoughts on this? Keep in mind that Fareless Zone is -1 per turn, so that should be factored in.

I'm really sorry to say this but this is one of the ugliest map I've ever seen on CC :cry:
I know you put a lot of effort on this but it seems it took you just 30 min to do it :shock:
who the hell was CC graphic reviewer for this map :x

but apart my aesthetic judgement which very relative and just a point of view
the link between train station and adjacent territories is not very clear
it is always hard to tell if a station is a crossing point or just one sided
plus the connection between forest park and the two territories below is not clear
as the forest border may seems to be impassable

You are more than welcome not to play it. I certainly don't play any of your maps.

I can't help but find some irony in your comment, after some of your own maps have been widely panned and your response to their criticisms was:

pamoa wrote:It is personal
I spent 100 hours of my life on this
so it is very personal


Yet, you have no problem taking a giant dump on my work.

There are currently 53 games in play on Portland and 76 finished. You are the first to come here and complain about its aesthetics.

I'm not saying you can't be hurt by what I say
nor saying you have to change it or it shouldn't be published
if so I would have commented long ago about it
but I knew it would have been sterile
as I couldn't find a helpful positive judgement about it
but I have also the right to say what I feel about it
and this was to close the debate about aesthetics

but I think you may try to answer the second part about playability
which can be improved to my point of view

I think there is a learning curve to playing on any new map, but a good one you will pick up on those things quickly.

That said, I don't mind nudging some Forest Park trees out of the way for the sake of clarity. I'll play around with the MAX stops too, but I don't see either of these as needing urgent attention. I have lurked through several random finished game chats and didn't see much in the way of confusion there.

I am still waiting for some feedback on the proposal to lower the MAX bonuses. If/when that is implemented, I'll make these other minor graphic edits.

As far as the MAX bonuses go, I think you could reduce yellow and blue by 1, making them each +3. The red could stand to go down to +5, but it's not quite as necessary IMO.

my main concern is about the train stations
as when you play speed game or freestyle
you can't have an hesitation

my suggestion is that you double the train symbol
one above the other
in the stations where you have a double access

Sorry to be the second to dump on the graphics, and I know I have no artistic talent, but I find this map to be pretty poor graphically as well. Here are my specific issues:

The bridges are pretty weak.

The color scheme of green for the regions is exactly the same as the green player, so BOB is next to useless for seeing a region.

The legend compared to the map is huge, it just seems like a lot more room could have been used for map real estate.

The gameplay is actually pretty good here, somewhat reminiscent of Chicago, which is a top notch map.

Compared to the other maps coming out of the foundry lately, this just doesn't seem polished graphically. Again, I know this is probably going to hurt your feelings but I think there's potential here if the graphics were up to the gameplay's standard.

Negative or not, I appreciate that your feedback is at least somewhat constructive.

That said, I'm beginning to think there are just some very different tastes for what quantifies a good graphical map on CC. There's plenty I think look like sh!t that others love and vice versa. Some seem to think anything not hand-drawn is crap, whereas I crave sharp, crips, bold maps.

Obviously I am biased, but I've received a lot more positive kudos on the map graphics than negative. With 176 games finished and 91 in progress, only two have disliked it enough to comment. Perhaps it will fall to the wayside over time, but I'm certainly not going to do a graphic reboot at this point.

PS - I feel obligated to note that this gameplay and layout was in place for almost a year before Chicago was even started. Its also sort of funny you say my legend is too big. Have you seen Chicago recently? More than half of it is legend space.

I've been playing around with the max issue and came up with a version with arrows. I don't love it, but if it provides clarity, I'll update.

After having played more with the MAX bonuses, I think they are fine as is. Too hard to hold in most formats to make them any less.

Re: Portland [19 SEP 2011] v.42 - MAX arrows?

Postby isaiah40 on Tue Oct 04, 2011 8:20 pm

No, the arrows tell me that I can only attack FROM the max stops, not both ways. Looking at it how about deleting the text "... including the Fareless zone, which decays 1 troop per round held." Since you have the bonuses listed by color and you have the -1 beside the Fareless zone. In that text place you can expand on the Max Stops by saying "Board and de-board MAX Stops via the neighborhoods they touch" or something to that effect. Just my 2 cents worth. ;)

The army numbers on the black MAX windows have not the best readability. Could they be placed on the white parts?

Also the legend is very big in the large map. My screen resolution is 1400x900 but the text is really coming towards me so I prefer the small map to play on.

Forgot to upload this, but I updated the legend per isaiah's suggestion does this work for everyone? Or is it still too thematic and unclear?
I'll make the small version too if there are no changes.

I could move the MAX numbers, but this is the first complaint I've heard about it, so I'll need to hear some others to make the change. I think most like it as is.

The new MAX lines explanation in the legend looks good to me. :)
About MAX numbers, I think he is referring to blue troops. They are visible and clear on my screen, but I know that some people has issues with them on dark background. Actually I agree with you and I would wait for more feedbacks on this "issue" before pushing you to change the coordinates.
