nolefan did suggest that +6 for central wei was more appropriate, so we can try that. we need to ensure that the kingdom bonuses are worth having, therefore kingdom of wei has to be at least +10 or +11 if this happens. in light of both this and ur useful comments above, i'll take another look at the bonuses.

most names are in modern chinese pinyin, while some are in an older system of chinese romanisation (the obvious ones to me are chien an and yueh-sui). i'll try to find the pinyin names for those two regions.

it will add to the chinese flavour of the map, without compromising playability, for north to be replaced by bei, south by nan and west by xi where they appear in region names.

Thanks for the time Ian. Not to rush you or anything, but I know VJ has started on the xml, so once you can get me some concrete info to update I'd be happy to make the changes.
Also, regarding nolefan's comment on the Central Wei bonus, he did say that changing it to +6 might be a good idea, but that it really wouldn't matter. At that time we went ahead and kept it as it is, which is what I would like to do now, instead of change it. I think if it's a problem it could be worked out in beta, no?

if possible, please increase kingdom of wei from +9 to +11 to balance wei against shu, which is an easier bonus. central wei can be fixed in beta if necessary, while i'm happy with nolefan's decision on the other zonal bonuses. southern yi can be less disadvantaged by letting nanman start with n2 instead of n3 neutrals.

change the n3 from bei ping west to an n2 on bei ping port to reduce the chance of starting with a cities bonus. in fact, now i look at it some more, what's to prevent player 1 from using his own cities bonus to knock out player 2's cities bonus, then continuing with 1 or 2 extra troops per turn to secure a decisive advantage? rather than +1 for every 2 cities, +4 for any 5 cities will eliminate this problem.

by the way, i'm away for the next week. however, koontz will be around if u need to ask any questions about gameplay.

the first part is easy, I'll update that.

With regard to the second, I want to make sure you're taking into consideration that no matter how many players per game, each player will only start with 1 city. So player 1 in your example won't have a city bonus to start. As neither will player 2, etc. The other non distributed cities start 2n. That is also why being ping west can stay as is.

Other than the above are the names fine as is?

i thought i remembered reading something about a maximum of one city, but couldn't find it. does this mean each player starts with 12 regions in 2-player and 3-player games? u'll need to solve that one too, possibly by giving a starting maximum of 2 cities and changing the bonus to +2 for every 3 cities.

as for the names, chien an appears to be kuaiji, while yueh-sui is spelt yuesui these days and yueh-sui south corresponds most closely to jianning.

Can you take a quick look at the OP and let me know if we have those set up correctly? Right now we have 2 player games starting 10 each, and 3 players 8 each.

Wheew. :lol: you're already on vacation.

Ok, so just change wei from 9 to 11. Change the names. And what about nanman, do I need to make that 2n? Anything else?

VJ,

The city bonus needs to be reworked using collections tags. If you need assistance let me know.

Borders/bonuses look okay.

Positions also need to be reworked. Can you give me a little bit more info on how it's supposed to work? The "start=1", what is the max positions on that? And the other territories?

Koontz and I worked this out a while back, and I think it works really well for making the cities a playable option in all game types. Does that work for you?

Yeah, I really like this.

maximum of one position per player, with n2 underlying neutrals.
