cairnswk wrote:Ian, sorry, do you mean S canterbury? S canterbury is +5 on the spreadsheet...N canterbury is +7, so i'm a little confused as to which region you're talking about. Could you clarify please.

Also i looked at N Canterbury and it already has 1 tiki bonus and only needs 4 other forts to covers its borders.
It has 6 terrs while S Canterbury has 7 terrs. I thought it would be easier to holder this than the S Canterbury.

i'm agreeing with north canterbury's +6.5 on the spreadsheet: +5.5 normal and +1 tiki. given the 5 borders, including one-way attacks to christchurch, we need at least +5 normal and +1 tiki, which matches the spreadsheet's +6.5 rounded downward.

south canterbury is fine at +3 normal and +1 tiki. the spreadsheet gives +4.58, which can go either way and u've chosen downward. compared with north canterbury, downward is correct because there are only 3 borders, no one-way attacks into timaru and one of the smallest numbers of adjacent enemy bonus zones on the map.

to help those whose vision isn't so good, may i suggest using the auckland colour in hawke's bay and vice versa? hawke's bay and bay of plenty are very similar in shade. having the bright yellow auckland colour in hawke's bay provides much-needed contrast.

Version 11

1. Ian bonuses implemented for N S Canterbury
2. Auckaland colour to Wellington; Manawatu colour to Auckland: Wellington colour to Manawatu to overcome the closeness of colur issue ian had - but not pur a big section of bright yellow in Manawatu as it would have been too dominant on the map.

Hmmm ... I think that Otago and S Canterbury's colors could be switched. Otago is too close to West Coast, and S Canterbury is too close to N Canterbury in the CB test.

Wouldn't that still make the S Caterbury and West Coast CB colours too close.
I'll keep searching for a solution that makes good aesthetics on the map also. :)

Was there a colour profile (.icm) file provided with your monitor?

If not, the monitor manufacturer might provide one on their website... they're usually in the same place where they provide driver updates and such. After you have the colour profile file, you need to go to the display settings (if you use windows) and there to the advanced settings, and there should be a tab where you can select the colour profile to use - there, add the colour profile you downloaded and set your system to use it.

Alternatively, your monitor might have an option in it's settings to use the sRGB colourspace, in which case you can use the standard sRGB colour profile, which should be installed in your system by default.

There probably was, but i have also changed my computer but not the monitor - Asus VW192T Splendid.
I have nwo changed the colour profile to sRGB colourspace, so i'll see if there is any difference.
Thanks for your assistance on that. :) Much appreciated.

In all seriousness, this map is growing on me more and more.

Nice humour Andy, enough to lighten my mood. Boy, tax is going to be hard this semester!

Anyways, a couple of colour changes on the South Island...plus the CB test to go with it. :)
