Wow... this is looking really good now.

Using arrows for the Interstate attacks makes it appear as if those are one-way attacks, which would make that space inaccessible. I think the attack routes would be clearer without arrows.

The dice look pixelated and the drop shadow is out of place. You could probably find a better image of dice or make your own.

Shouldn't the mountains in the north look more like hills than alpine peaks? :)

Lastly, drop the baseball players and show the Devils some love! :P

Here's my analysis as to what the bonuses should be:
  • W. Skyland: +2 (Alternatively - which would be better - you could have Sussex border Montville and keep it +3)
  • E. Skyland: +5
  • N. Gateway: +3
  • S. Gateway: +3
  • Delaware River: +6
  • Jersey Coast: +4
  • Atlantic City: +2
  • South Coast: +3
Some other comments:
  • I think the killer neutrals would do better as 1's instead of 2's, as I don't see them being used too much otherwise (even for just 2).
  • I think also the "+1 autodeploy on Trenton" would do better up by the minimap.

Following up on the concept of breaking the map into smaller zones...the "Leeward " zone wouldn't work...Call it "South Jersey"

After all, I live in South Jersey :)

It's been just about a month since the last major update. What is the status of this?

it looks like this one is heading for the recycle bin too but i have to ask: isn't the artwork on the map copyrighted?

You should include the Trenton auto-deploy on the mini map instead of way down at the bottom. If you're going to use a minimap, you should include all bonus information there.

I think that the instructions on the interstate are entirely unnecessary. We can all see that it "attacks Flemington and Glassboro.

Good catch DiM! Tisha, please verify this. It would seem that a postcard from the 50's-60's would fall under copyright laws. So it would appear that development of this map has 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. ;-)

Re: [VACATION - valid until June 2012] New Jersey

Postby Tisha on Wed Dec 14, 2011 8:30 pm

This postcard design was published in 1941.. if the postcard was published between 1923,
and 1963 with a copyright, the copyright would have had to been renewed..
and few than 15% of all registered copyrights of that time period were actually renewed..

it's hard for me to believe it's copyrighted still when it's used on random websites
around the internet, or when people are selling images of the postcard on products on Zazzle..
among other places..

but I'll look into it.

I'll post an update tomorrow.
