isaiah40...these are created as representational of the neck-gear that natives wear (some to show wealth) made from pigs teeth.
I am sorry but they stay as they give the map a slight "cultural" difference as part of the overall aesthetic :)


Ah, I read. Okay then.

I am really, really liking this map.

I don't see any gameplay issues, just a couple minor things:

- Maybe add "All" to Parks and Utilities in the Legend, i.e. "All Parks +5"
- The circle for Lapun Durand Epot needs to be moved down a bit.
- Where the Motu Tribe attack route and Walters Solwara attack route meet is a little funky. What if you moved the Motu Tribe ship closer to Paga, and had the Walters attack route go behind it? That would eliminate the crossing altogether. Just a thought.

Again, this is really cool and seems to be a great play for an 8 person game, and a nice, long tactical play for 1v1.

Thanks Seamus76. :)
I have adjusted those items for you and will post the updated version shortly.
I'm going to re-work the text in CorelDraw so hopefully they;ll come up better.

If you consider it bastardised, what is your alternative, and why do you consider it bastardised?
All it is is the name in the local language - Tok Pisin - which i would have thought quite appropriate. :)

I'm with cairnswk (naturally) I thought it made the map more ethnic/reflective of the area depicted.

That being so, it doesn't mean it cannot be changed, afterall it is not an english country inhabited by naturally speaking english people.
Anyways, back on topic ....Pot Mosbi (in tok pisin) is the name of the map.
Let's move on eh? :)

I like the new text. The texture on the land territories makes the map as a whole look cluttered, though. I'd either try a different one or ditch it entirely.

At any rate, could we get a sticky/draft stamp? :mrgreen:
