Andy, i kinda agree about Southland, i think it's worth +4 - it has 8 territories, 3 of which are natural borders, and 1 of those is a black plane being able to be assaulted from 4 other terrs, effectively giving it 7 bordering terrs that can attack it.
my main point of reference is classic north america, which has one more region, but is attacked by only 3 bonus zones instead of 5. i agree that all 3 borders being connected is not enough advantage to reduce the bonus by 1, so +4 (excluding the tiki) is appropriate.
OK. that's agreed. +4 for Southland.

What about a split Ashburton-Mt Hutt and Selwyn?
if u want to split canterbury into north and south, then that's the logical place to do it.
OK, i'll do that and see what the bonuses are.
by the way, i really dislike the mouths of the rivers being closed off instead of running into the ocean.
yes, that will be fixed in graphics one i discover how to do it in Illustrator easily with the gradient tool
btw ian, i am asking you to re-examine the sea link Whanganui to Coromandel...
previously Gillipig proposed this link
For gameplay reasons Northland and Auckland held together needs to have 3 borders! Otherwise in 1v1 games it'll only be about who can hold those bonuses. I suggest making a dotted connection between Whangerei and Coromandel.
so my question is...should this link still be removed on the above...?
