My eye usually is not a big fan of your maps design, but this one looks really nice. Nice combination of colours and sober enough.So this time my eye got you :)
Didnt try to play it yet but it looks really fun so i will do it soon.
Keep up the good work

Thank-you Armandolas for your feedback, I hope you enjoy this map.
As a matter of other feedback...why my other maps not catch you eye? Just interested to know :)


I think my eye has a problem with the colours that you like. You seem to like a lot of pink and "washed" colours ...sometimes i have the feeling that im still playing some 80s videogame
Maybe they are just too colourfull for me and dont let me concentrate...haha
Also the little details like mountains and these kinds of stuff, now are much more modern
Maybe i cant just explain my feelings...but this is not a criticism , is just a matter of my visual taste no being equal to yours, because i know a lot of people like your maps

I agree with iancanton about what you discussed in Game 12192356.
Specify on the map that tiki are autodeploy is a very good idea.
Said that, you can wait a bit before to update, maybe something else will come up, so you won't have to produce an update just for that. ;)

First time playing this map. I will say this. Looks to be a very interesting map. I am fan of 1 vs 1 games and 18 spots to start gives a pretty big advantage to those who go first. Example.. Yes I had killer dice, but the point of 6 vs 5 or 4 to drop stands. Maybe 1 more neutral would fix this?

Game 12204881

After me playing 1 turn..

Bruceswar 4.9 1 24 59 8
shaneback 4.8 0 12 36 4

I am 23 men up and 8 deployments up.

This appears to be a result of the changed XML posted on the 9th, in which one of the Tiki's was coded neutral. This will have to be addressed cairns. Are any other regions other than the Tiki's coded as neutrals? I haven't counted the regions myself, but based on the first post, there are 73 starting regions and 16 neutrals, leaving 57 regions to be distributed, which would give each player 19 regions in 1v1. Ideally, you put it down to 53 starting regions so 1v1 will start with 17 and 4 player games will start with 13, but 57 is a decent enough number (though not perfect, since dropping 6 will make it easier to take 3 or more regions from your opponent on the first turn).

no, there are only 16 neutrals on tikis.

I haven't counted the regions myself, but based on the first post, there are 73 starting regions and 16 neutrals, leaving 57 regions to be distributed, which would give each player 19 regions in 1v1. Ideally, you put it down to 53 starting regions so 1v1 will start with 17 and 4 player games will start with 13, but 57 is a decent enough number (though not perfect, since dropping 6 will make it easier to take 3 or more regions from your opponent on the first turn).


There are 72 terts (FP now changed)...my bad :oops:
less 16 neutrals = 56 for distribution...not so good....since that means for 2P/3P 18 start positions = 6 armies on the drop, which is what everyone gets at present.

Rather than code another 3 neutrals (which is the number required to make a decent drop number), why not make the divisor 4 (i have new graphics and xml centering to do anyway).

That would make 2P/3P armies 4 on start. This would reduce the ability to take so many terts on 1st go and even up the playing field a bit.

Code: Select all
    <reinforcements>
       <reinforcement>
          <lower>1</lower>
          <upper>72</upper>
          <divisor>4</divisor>
       </reinforcement>
    </reinforcements>
