I thought some time back you were pretty happy with everything or at least that's the impression i got.

Oh, yes. I merely decided it wasn't worth quibbling over at the time when we had gameplay stuff to discuss.

Oh, OK

I've went ahead and stickied this for now. I really don't have any other GP concerns right now, but I'll get Ian to take another look at it.

It might be too late, it might have been discussed...

Have you seriously considered an advantage of some tribes who can get a small early game bonus due to having small +2/+3 continents next to their starting position vs tribes like Jiwiki or Motu who would take ages to get their first bonus on a larger region?

No i don't beleived it has been discussed, but i think there is only two tribe that has a +4.
Hulli Tribe - Saraga +2 - saraga next to a utility which can be assaulted from another utility.
Iwan Tribe - Inland Saut +3 - 2 terrs away from a utility.
Motu Tribe - Lapun Bitaun + 4 - can be easily assaulted from several surrounding positions
Jiwiki Tribe - Napa Napa Rot +4 - adjacent to Chimbu Tribe front line at Atlas Steel
Chimbu Tribe - Baruni +3 - adjacent ot Napa Napap Rot Wan
Enga Tribe - Gerehu +3 - next to a utility Uni PNG
Highland Tribe - Waigani +2 - no proximity
Asaro Tribe - Outer Mails +2 - no proximity

3 x +2
3 x +3
2 x +4

What can be done...any suggestions?

OK, the real issue here is with the amount of regions a player must conquer in order to get his first bonus.

You have:
Huli - 2
Iwan - 3
Motu - 4
Jiwiki - 4
Chimbu - 4
Enga - 3
Highland - 3
Asaro - 3
--> Huli would very probably get their +2 bonus in a second turn and then could damage other players, gaining a massive advantage, while in speedier games Chimbu would probably never achieve their own bonus.

Optimally, these number should all be the same, probably 3 (therefore 4 regions for the whole bonus zone);
so, for example,
Huli - either make a new territory between Saraga and Jacksons OR Saraga and Faiv Mail
Motu - merge Paga and Lapun Biktaun
Jiwiki - merge Napa Napa Rot Fo and Napa Napa Rot Tre
Chimbu - merge Gogodala Viles and Baruni Westim Ples
-> the bonuses then should be changed accordingly.

((Alternatively, I am thinking about more complicated gameplay tweaks - such as giving only a maximum of +1 bonus per a minimum of 2 regions in the bonus area close to the tribe IF the player holds the tribe.
That would also reduce any possible early game advantages/disadvantages for getting a strong bonus zone & being lucky in your first turn. I am fairly confident that XML would allow this, but I think it is rather complicated, so I'd rather try to balance it out by redrawing as I suggested above.))

I really don't think it's an issue. I think it'll even out ;) Plus, it's good to have diversity with starting positions.

I think the diversity is already given by the surrounding terrain or even by the layout of the tribe-adjacent bonus zone.

But it is not OK if some players, due to their starting position have a 76% chance of getting +2 bonus, while others have 14.5% chance of getting +4 bonus. If you have 7+3 troops starting region from which you can attack a lot of stuff around, I don't think that this is a diversity that enhances gameplay. Especially in 1v1 games, it throws the game.

(This, by the way, reminds me of the nature of similar complaints on Rorke's Drift map)

I think the current set up is probably fine. If you take into account other variables, like expansion possibilities for instance, Motu can expand into Biktaun while keeping their overall border count down.
