No no superbonuses, but I need them broken up still for the "Hold all Capitals for X" bonus

this is well worth considering. at present, killing 5 neutrals for +1 auto isn't worth it and, since dc isn't part of any other bonuses, it seems destined to be ignored unless we increase its attractiveness.

dc currently borders baltimore and richmond. a further connection to annapolis is logical because of its proximity.

the road from annapolis to dc is still missing. adding it will give more ways to reach dc.

the bonuses for alaska and montana look as if they ought to be reduced to +2 and +3 respectively; although they sort of border each other, this is only a half-border, since it's thru a killer neutral.

wyoming can easily go from +3 bonus to +2 because all four cities are on interstates, which gives plenty of potential for the interstate +3 bonuses.

perhaps n4 instead of n5 is better for the state capitals, so that the capital bonus comes into play a bit earlier?

Yes they are. If I had to do the map in proportions - within CC's size restrictions - it would look something like this:

That is somewhat correct, and Delaware is not part of the Great Lakes either. Things are out of proportion, in different regions for gameplay reasons, and also to adhere closely to the USA map packs.

This is true. I used the largest airports in each region. It was a toss up as to which was the largest airport between Los Angeles and San Francisco, so I choose San Francisco for the cross map airport.

You left the 16th biggest city in the country with a population of 750,000 off the map. Add Fort Worth or I cannot take it seriously.

Glendive was remove per iancanton's suggestion, as for Salem to Burns, that connection is now Medford to Burns.

Cairns and nolefan area correct, this is still in GP, and I know you've said it before, and as I have said before, if it doesn't pertain to gameplay clarity, it can wait until graphics.

Lets start it now. This is more than good enough for me.

But as for game play which the thing on the home page says you want, this looks OK to me. But one question, why does Hawaii only have one way in or out and Alaska have two? Hawaii has one extra region to take but it is only a +2 to a +4. Should these be a bit closes together. Maybe add another connection to Hawaii and both be +4 or just make Alaska a +3.

a progress report while i'm midway through checking bonuses. states that have a yellow airport appear to be undervalued by about 2 troops. my gut feel is that very large states, such as california, texas and florida, will be rarely attempted unless their bonuses are increased, simply because higher-paying combined bonuses, such as state plus highway, are available for the same number of cities held. more after i've completed my analysis of bonuses!

what a good job u've made of the state bonuses! 90% of them are good as is, which is some achievement on a map of this size and complexity.

as mentioned before, the large states with yellow airports will need bigger bonuses to compensate for both their vulnerability to attack and the delay in actually starting to pay out: +9 instead of +6 for california, +8 instead of +5 for texas, +5 instead of +3 for illinois, +7 instead of +5 for new york and +6 instead of +5 for georgia.

the corner location of florida just about compensates for the large number of cities that it has, so we can leave it at +4. for dc, +2 auto-deploy instead of +3 is probably more balanced, since it's initially accessible only from baltimore and will almost certainly form part of a strategy that combines dc with i-95.

for the bonuses that involve state capitals, perhaps include the star symbol to make it clear that dc doesn't count.

the road from plattsburgh to burlington has somehow gone through canada. straighten out the border to fix this.
