Or at least a floor plan image of the Bastille.
cairnswk wrote:sempaispellcheck, i hope this will go somewhere graphically...i have to say it is not looking too good at present imho. I am sorry to be blunt. i don't like the oriental characters whatever they represent, and for such a huge city like Paris, i think something more/better could have been made of the arrondissements (districts including the outer porte ones), quartiers (quaters e.g. Latin), rive droite (right bank) and rive gauche (left bank) towards the gameplay.

What if I just had 3 stations on each metro line? Ligne 1 would have stations at l'Arc de Triomphe, Louvre, and Vincennes, and Ligne 4 would have stations at Sacre-Cœur, Montparnasse or Montsouris, and Louvre. Would that work?
What do you think? How can I make it better?

Remove the tabac sign.

koontz1973 wrote:Territ lines. The lines for the territs are nice and thin and work. The ones around the bonus areas are huge and horrible. Go back and redo them. I do not know what settings you used for the territ lines but you need to copy that but make the lines slightly thicker.
