Only 22 starting terts in 1v1?! :shock:

And DC is definitely not in any state. It's all on it's own. Maryland and Virginia both donated land for the city.

Congrats on what is one of the best maps on cc imo!! Love it & seems really popular already. One question, there is no bonus attached to the different coloured highways/roadways (im aussie not sure the correct term used in the states lol), in the smaller maps holding one particular road line generates a bonus, it'd be cool to have them also on this one (anyone who ever held one would well have earned it :-P). Best thing about this map, is that it's huge but so straightforward & cohesive - well done to all involved!

Thank you! I'm glad you are enjoying this map!

Yes I think this will be more popular than my fractured mini-series. At first I did have the interstates having bonuses but it was brought up that no one would hold an entire interstate due to how hard it would be. As a matter of fact, the bonuses went through a change after the game-play stamp was issued, so what you see is the culmination of it.

Think I found a quirk in the XML connections. Albert Lea (MN) is connected to Sioux City (IA) instead of Des Moines (IA) should be the other way around.

Gilligan is right to a degree, and so it chap. DC had land donated by both Maryland and Virginia, however, Virginia took its chunk of DC back during the Civil War, and it remained that way after the war ended. DC resides within Maryland on 3 sides, as Gilly's map clearly shows, however, DC stands for District of Columbia, its not a part of Maryland, or any other state for that matter...

It's up to the isaiah exactly how the bonuses are distributed. You do get an autodeploy for DC and if you need to hold it to hold Maryland, so be it.

Yeah, this is a small map/large map discrepancy. Albert Lea connects to Sioux City on the small, but not the large.

One thing I noticed that seems strange is that No. 37 is in Michigan, while 35, 36 and 38 are all in Mississippi or Alabama.

I think Battle Creek, Michigan should get a different number to reflect the other numbers around it. If you don't know your US geography, than finding No. 37 would be very, very difficult.

I am thinking of changing the reinforcements to +1 for every 5 regions to slow down the acquirement of bonuses too fast. It seems like +1 for every 3 gives way too many. Any thoughts or ideas??
