Thanks - someone made some good suggestions about making it easier to read. He said it was complicated too and I think maybe it is but I want it to play different. Just hope it plays good... I'm sure it will get work there as well.

Awesome.

However: the new borders look bad.

Yeah - I think so. I'm actually building this with much more resolution and it's kind of an issue. Thx.

vaughn, welcome back. Really nice to see this here again. Bare with me as this is a new one for me to really dig into.

Taiwan, part of the Northwest bonus but it looks unconnected to anything. Same with Celam in South East. Central, what is connected to what? Does Sumatra attack Batavia?
In the legend you say:
FLEETS-1 way attacks ports bombards land
Troops 2 way attacks fleet and sea passages.

So if I have read that right, SF3 can attack Bangkok, Singapore and PF1? What can it bombard?
Macau attacks the sea route which can then attack the fleets. Correct?

This is what happens when you look at a map for the first time after a long while. O:)

aren't some of the names spelled wrongly? or am I overseeing something?

burnei ==> brunei

Glad you're back vaughn. In no particular order:

- I like the old borders.
- I'm having a hard time figuring out what attacks the Spice Islands. I see the magnifying glass on the main map with lines coming into it, for ex. from PF3, but what does that specifically attack, and what do the Islands attack out to?
- If by "Attack troops within their own archipelagos", you mean they only attack within their colored region, except for the sea routes, and where indicated, you may want to say that (as far as "colored regions"). First of all I think there will be some people who have no idea what an archipelagos is, and therefore won't know that Bali attacks Java, even without a sea route (unless I have this all wrong, in which case you need to explain it even better, lol).

Keep up the great work.

vaugn, we need guidance on what bits of land u want the ships to bombard. can a ship bombard all land or just some?

the current wording of the legend suggests that ports can attack only land regions unless they're connected to sea passages, so singapore can attack only malaka. am i right?

in the first post, can u please list the regions that start neutral? i presume they include all ports and one ship in each fleet.

cochin china is too far north. cochin china ought to be the part of dai viet (roughly today's vietnam) that borders kambodje on our map. i suggest that the current cochin china region is divided into a northern part called either china or canton (china's main port) and a southern part called dai viet. hainan can be eliminated if u want to keep the same number of regions, since it was an unimportant island.

I know - I'm sorry. I owe a revision. By the time they moved me back to active I was busy working 12 hours days again. I'll get to it as soon as I can.

vaughn, going to give you to the weekend to post an update. Please get one done (even a small thing). Just keep this alive and allow others to comment. Then when you slow down you can continue. Either that or I can bung this on holiday for you.
