I almost forgot about this map. I really like it, and would like to see it worked on again...I think I like it more than some of your current projects, Cairnswk!

Yeh, appreciate your sentiments Andy. I will get back to it hopefully sometime when exams are over...at the mo, it's little bits and pieces that i can fit in between studying...NZ mountains are going to take at least a couple of days to conquer graphically. :)

theHippo wrote:Having regard to the map of Maori regions and places, here's a list of recommendations from me that may be helpful:

Focus on Nga Puhi (Kaitaia rather than Whangarei)
Done.

Tainui (close enough to Pukekohe - shift from Rodney - which really isn't a Maori renown area at all)
Done.

Tuhoi (Rotorua rather than Whakatane)
Done.

Ngati Porou (where you have Te Araroa but I'd choose Ruatoria as that has more significance)
Done

Ngati Kahungun (Hastings)
Done.

Ngati Maru (Mt Taranaki - rather than Hawera
Done.

Ngati Ruakawa (Taihape)
Done.

Ngati Toa (where you have Wellington - which is actually Pararaparaumu as Wellington is at the botton of the North Island where the circular harbour is - not that I'm complaining but Wellington is the Capital city!)
Too difficult to fit that request in, so Masterton it has to be

Ngati Tama (Nelson)
Made it the National Parks

Rangitane (where you have Picton - shift from MV)
Once again space prevent that.

Ngati Apa (where you have Karamia - shift from Westport, which frankly wouldn't be classified as Maori in any way shape or form!)
Not desirous to have two tikis side by side unless there is an impassable in-between
The rest of the South Island is pretty much considered Ngai Tahu - but you could do Ngai Tahu (where you have Hunurui - actually spelled Hurunui - but I'd shift that to Kairkoura if I were you)
Space...

Te Wai Pounamu (pretty much covers it all but why not have that where you have Waimate
Done.
Waitahe (where you have Clutha - actually speklled Balclutha - but I'd move that to Kaitangata if I were you)
Balclutha done
finally Ngati Mamoe (where you have Fjordland but I'd shift that to Manapouri if I were you).
Ah. to me Manapouri is only the lake and region around it...whereas the N.P. encompasses that whole area of the SW of the South Island, so i'll leave it there.

Thanks for those cultural associations theHippo. :)
All changes will be in v13.

Had to move the tiki from Hurunui to Kaikoura, so that two tikis are not side by side

Kia ora! Looking sharp! I've double-checked spelling etc and you have no complaints from me! Gameplay looking good to me too, there's one tiki per region and all the other bits makes sense. Can I play it now? Ka kite ano te whanau!

I'm pretty satisfied with the graphics of the map. You could consider adding a deeper / darker outline to the names of the bonus zones listed in the legends, but it may not be necessary and in fact may add too much focus to those softer areas.

Keep up the good work.
