It would be helpful if you could point out the blunders you see, I see a couple, but not many mote than that.Mostly because I'm biased.

Here you go... Red circles are areas that need attention... The right side of the map has the texure missing? I assume you will fix that?

Thanks Bruceswar! I'll work on those when I get some time.

By the texture on the right side, do you mean the South where the color changes to a light green. The Congo Map is actually a Satellite image of the DR Congo. So the changes in color are actually changes in terrain. This applies also to the north eastern section along the national border. I'm unsure about changing it because I like how the satellite image reflects the lush rainforest that dominates the country.

Wait, I see it, where the flags lose their texture. I think I meant to crop it but forgot, I'll fix it in the next update. Thanks again for your help!

[Moved]

This map has been moved into the Ideas subforum, as it has not had an update within the time period. This can still be worked on and moved back after an update has been made.

You don't really need the arrows going through the water unless it is significant to game play.
The territory lines should not be going through the water.
I like the land texture, pretty cool.

I see that the arrows do have a purpose, but I don't understand what it means. The Areas can attack the areas up stream. Aren't the areas already
in connection with the areas up stream of them.
or are you saying all territories along the river can attack each other?
or are you saying the territories along the river can attack all of the territories upstream but not down steam
or are you saying the territories can attack all of the territories upstream but only the ones connected to them down stream

You might need to reword the Kinsasha bonus a little better.

I will stop by and give more input later

I'm saying that if a territory borders the river it can attack any territory upstream that also borders the river, for example, Shaba can attack Bas-Congo but Bas-Congo can not attack Shaba.

why are attacks possible just upstream? it is modern era with diesel engines on boats...
also it is a little confused that Shaba can attacks Bas-Congo - it is far away. maybe attacks could go upstream up to 2/3?

So Kafue would be able to attack 11 other territories, but no other territory would be able to attack Kafue.
I love specialty game play, I am just trying to get the game play straight in my head.

How do you get to the three flags on the bottom left? Are they at the end of the river?

So can you attack "upstream" or "downstream"? If the arrows represent the direction the Congo flows, then according to the above description you can only attack "downstream" not "upstream" as that would be "against" the flow of the Congo.

Upstream - direction, against the current.
Downstream - in the direction of the current
If the Congo empties into the Atlantic, then I've made a mistake in my use of upstream and down stream

Also it seems I forgot to add the instructions saying Kinshasa can attack the US and the Soviet Union.
