I'll leave the gamplay comments to those gurus, but I did want to mention I like the black and gray aesthetic you've got going, especially the city skyline. The only part that kind of lacks is the blackhole behind the gameboard---in this area, I am not sure a black ink blot is really the best way to go.

Keep up the good work.

i'm not an expert on gameplay, so I let them talk and will try it as soon as it is out as a beta. Quite exciting to play on the metro map as a parisian.:)

This is a great idea.

How is this your first map Qyu? This is outstanding work. Personally, I like the last one the best, but the drawn river looks a little out of place in it.

Maybe we could erase the drawn river in this version, or color the one on the satellite view. The fact is we move a little some stations : Eiffel and Trocadero to the west, and Victor Hugo and Etoile to the North, so we bent the river at the same time.
We also prefer this one, but some railroads become unreadable, especially darker one (11 & 14). We may solve this issue by change the color.

I think removing the drawn one and giving the actual river a sort of glow would look great.

And I agree, changing the darker rail lines is probably for the best. #2 and #12 are a little hard to make out against the background.

We've removed the river.

We've also put a black glow on yellow and blue lines for a better contrast and understanding.

If you like it, we can do the same for every lines

I've added the above image to the first post, remember to keep your first post updated, it's easier for people to look at it and maybe leave a comment or two, than go through the whole thread to find out the latest version. ;)

Btw i like the map graphics, not a fan of the rail maps, but on the whole if i look at the map I find it nice.
It would be nice if everything was a bit larger, considering that this is the large version I'm a bit worried the small one will result too much cramped.
if you're willing to do the map larger, I can discuss with the guys if maybe we can allow some more pixels.

please can u correct the first post, which still has the old neutral values?

I think it's too much. Try to create a small, make some test....make sure everything fit the map. (but you don't need to be accurate for now)
Then let me know what is the best minimum size you can use for the small map. When we have that size we can discuss how much over that size we can go. ;)
