Cant wait for this one to go through the factory - once cairns has done this and new zealand there will be enough maps representing the CC community's nationalities and regions for me to embark further on nationality-based world championship tournaments.

Nice images. Only question is why the countries have their own colours, they don't have their own bonuses right?

Brazil and Argentina have several bonuses, while other countries have their own bonus - it's in the legend.

All the bonuses in the legend have a letter assigned for a corresponding railway line or zone. This makes different the country geometry only confusing in my opinion because the country geometry colours do not correspond exactly with the legend. Other rail series (except Rail Asia) you made also didn't have country geometry so why here?

Hello, its your friendly neighbourhood occational, sporadic, hardly around, sometimes, ghostly poster on maps. Yo cairnswk :D

In light of your Rail Asia map I read about this one, popped in to see how it is and throw in totally unwanted and mostly ignorable advice. :D Will do the usual bonus calc and general observations and will do them per line/letter (not nitcpicking every detail). The bonus I calc is my old formula (slightly adjusted) of: [( #terts * 1.5 ) + ( #terts to defend * 4 ) + ( #terts that can be attacks from it * 2 ) + ( #continents adjecent * 1 )] / 9 => #bonus

H - Central America
3 terts, 1 to defend and 1 attackable, 1 continent adjecent => Bonus of 1
no comment

O - Columbian
7 terts, 5 to defend and 5 attackable, 4 continents adjecent => Bonus of 5
Its a spider web! Perhaps move the connection PAN-BOG to PAN-BRR to make it harder to get to or from H to the rest (you can then also create a BRR-SCT rail to make a track around south america!! :D). Bonus of 4 is better cause the person having this will also have H. SCT station letters U and O are switched.

D - Ecuadorian
2 terts, 2 to defend and 2 attackable, 2 continents adjecent => Bonus of 2
Bonus of 1 is indeed sufficient.

P - Peruvian
9 terts, 5 to defend and 5 attackable, 5 continents adjecent => Bonus of 5
6 is an overstatement, 5 perhaps to but I will stick to 5 for now.

C - Chilean
5 terts, 2 to defend and 2 attackable, 2 continents adjecent => Bonus of 2
no comment

V - Bolivean
8 terts, 4 to defend and 6 attackable, 5 continents adjecent => Bonus of 5
Seems alright indeed, won't be a continent taken easely or early

U - Venezuelan
6 terts, 4 to defend and 4 attackable, 3 continents adjecent => Bonus of 4
Bonus of 3 cause this is together with H/O/D/M/K a little stronghold side of the map. SCT station letters U and O are switched.

K - Guyannaian
5 terts, 2 to defend and 3 attackable, 3 continents adjecent => Bonus of 3
Bonus of 2 is indeed correct.

Y - Paraguayan
4 terts, 3 to defend and 3 attackable, 4 continents adjecent => Bonus of 3
Indeed good, will be fought over I believe.

G - Uraguayan
4 terts, 2 to defend and 5 attackable, 6 continents adjecent => Bonus of 3
Bonus of 2 is indeed correct.

B - Belem Line
7 terts, 3 to defend and 8 attackable, 7 continents adjecent => Bonus of 5
Bonus of 4 is more then enough, will be fought over cause of the Brazilia station.

R - Rio Line
8 terts, 6 to defend and 11 attackable, 7 continents adjecent => Bonus of 7
Bonus of 7 or 8, depending on your mood to award the person who fights for it, 9 is to much thou. First wanted to ask to switch out PET and REC to the B-line but then I noticed what you did in Brazilia, NIICE!! :D

A - Sao Paulo Line
6 terts, 5 to defend and 12 attackable, 6 continents adjecent => Bonus of 7
Bonus of 5 is more accurate, won't get taken easely or early but making it high just adds bonus to the winner to early I think.

Z - Porta Alegre Line
5 terts, 4 to defend and 9 attackable, 7 continents adjecent => Bonus of 5
Bonus of 3 or 4, will be fought over so 2 is just silly I think.

I - Campo Grande Line
4 terts, 3 to defend and 6 attackable, 6 continents adjecent => Bonus of 4
Bonus of 2 is fine, is a place to use as a jumpboard for the rest

L - Porto Velho Line
6 terts, 4 to defend and 10 attackable, 8 continents adjecent => Bonus of 6
idea: throw away stations VIT and LET to J for:
L' => 4 terts, 3 to defend and 9 attackable, 7 continents adjecent => Bonus of 5
With a bonus of 4 for L' then.

J - Amazon Line
4 terts, 3 to defend and 5 attackable, 5 continents adjecent => Bonus of 4
idea: add stations VIT and LET of L for:
J' => 6 terts, 4 to defend and 6 attackable, 6 continents adjecent => Bonus of 5
With a bonus of 4 for J' then, will be fought over I believe but not for holding it as it is key for expantion.

M - Manaus Line
3 terts, 2 to defend and 2 attackable, 2 continents adjecent => Bonus of 2
Could even go for a bonus of 1 I think, but 2 is alright.

N - Western Line
3 terts, 2 to defend and 5 attackable, 5 continents adjecent => Bonus of 3
Bonus of 2 is correct for it is in the GNSET-stronghold. STG station looks funny :D

S - Northern Line
4 terts, 2 to defend and 7 attackable, 6 continents adjecent => Bonus of 4
Bonus of 2 is indeed correct.

E - Southern Line
6 terts, 1 to defend and 4 attackable, 4 continents adjecent => Bonus of 3
Bonus of 2 is correct. Isn't SCV station rather SCB, heck you can just toss that one off imo.

T - North-Western Line
3 terts, 2 to defend and 5 attackable, 5 continents adjecent => Bonus of 3
Bonus of 2 is correct.



So we got an obvious GNSET-stronghold and a lesser HODUKM stronghold that is an expantion stronghold (first H => HO => HODU => HODUKM)

It would be cool to see some mountains and rivers on this one or some sort of topography.

That might be possible...i don't know if it would be too much for the map - there is already a lot happening...but we can see. :)

i think the difference between you calcs and mine....was the 9 divider...why did you do 9?

sorry, simply don't understand this...can you explain please?
