The six months of vacation has expired, for this reason this topic is now labeled as [Abandoned]. If the original mapmaker wants to continue this map project an update must be provided. From this moment anyone else is free to take this project without the original mapmaker permission, but it has to be started from the scratch.

I've made two updates in 2 days, and still this hasn't been moved.
Is the foundry now totally defunct?

Great looking map as always.

The bonusses take some effort to identify. Maybe the swans could be ordered in the same composition as the map? This might concentrate them on the bottom right corner. Bonus of 4 for Melville could be 3, as there are 3 boundaries.

Yes i will re-order them next update.

Territories (4) Number of Defending Territories (4) Number of Attacking Territories (7) Number of Neighbours (5)

sannerman...the bonus calculator we use shows the above for a bonus of 4. :)
personally i think i think you'd need at least 4 to help keep the region.

Okay it will work. By the way it is a similar situation as the Cambridge bonus (3 defending territories).

Fremantle on the swan = N. Frementle on the map.

Yes some bonuses will probably change fi the map makes it to the gameplay stage :)


Fremantle on the swan = N. Frementle on the map.

Fremantle is two territories...Fremantle and N. Fremantle...linked by that little white bridge.

I would remove them. They are not adding anything to this one. I would even go as far as to remove the helicopters as well for the same reason.

Not really a decision but a preference. But here is how I look at them. You have 20 continents spread over 73 territories. By adding in the rail lines you are giving the ability to jump one region only in most cases so would not get used much, The stations are on borders so would naturally be defended making them less relevant. The lines starting in Perth have made that territ very crowded. The name is closer to S.Perth and the army circle is over the line. And that crowding seems to be everywhere. Hence the comment not adding anything.
The helicpoters are better than the trains as they do allow you to move over the map faster, have less impact on space.
The ferry to and from Rottnest island I cannot see being used much because of the neutral and the fact that the island is not in a bonus zone.

Last thing, you have all this lovely space being used on the right of the map for this huge background image and title. Why not use that part to make the map larger?

OK, convinced to remove the trains...

...but unconvinced the character of the Swann River, sailing and the city skyline needs to change...the map has plenty of real estate.

Born and bred Perthite here.. great to see a map of my home town..
A couple of spelling errors

Lenwick === should be Kenwick
Gosnell === Gosnells
You also dropped a couple of r's in Karrawarra, but that is understandable: could also be called Manning

Apart from that I can't wait to make this MY map
