Yeah, I noticed the Leira-Setubal connection. While it isn't big, I think it should be changed nonetheless.

It gives a little more to the game in gameplay don´t you think?

it´s a bug, but let´s think what is beast in the board, what more experiente players think about this gameplay?

Well, either is should be removed from the XML or the map should be changed so that the connection also shows there. Like it is now, it's unclear from the map that the connection is there.

another XML bug report on this map:

Is the territory spelled ALGAVE Este or ALGARVE Este? The map says one thing, the pull down menus say another.

When are the mistakes corrected. Should not be that much work. Maps can still not played well now.

OK, no problem. Just can't wait to play this map (and I hate if gameplay is not correct, so won't start a game before that).

XML problem #4: Alentejo Norte and Santarem (sp?) do not look like they are connected on either the large or small map, yet they are... the map suggests that they are separated by the water, and if that was not the intent then why put the water in there at all? Either the attack routes should be removed or the map changed to reflect the route.

It's ironic that it was a concern for details on this very map that led to personal attacks against Keyogi. Additional concerns, such as the list I posted three weeks ago, were dismissed - rather than feedback or discussion around this map, we got two weeks of "WE WANT THIS MAP ON."

Maybe attention to detail isn't a bad thing after all? :idea:

I know I'm three years late, wanted to say this map looks great. But Braganca is spelled Bragança and maybe it would be cooler to call Douro => D'Ouro, the old name. Also you could put Braga inside the region to make it more visible.
It's going to be mostly portuguese nationals playing this game, so if you include a small flag in the corner it will probably get picked more. :P

Some corrections should be made concerning the NAMES writen in the map of PORTUGAL:
1. Covilhã should be called Castelo Branco (and vice-versa)
2. Alentejo Norte should be called Portalegre
3. Portalegre should be called Elvas
4. Estermoz should be called Estremoz
5. Alentejo Sul should be called Mértola
6. Algarve Este should be called Tavira
7. Açores oriental has 2 islands (instead of 3)
8. Açores centro has 5 islands (instead of 4)[/list]
Many thanks.

Unfortunately the PSD for this map has long since be lost I won't be able to change names without a full revamp, which I do not think will happen any time soon. Sorry.

Hello, people. I'm from Porugal and relatively new to Risk.

The portuguese map is not really realistic at all. Many misplaced names, regions which don't exist, etc.

How can I help?

If the mapmaker doesn't want the map to be changed, there's nothing that can be done unfortunately.

I could try to make a fresh new map, and submit it to evalution. It will take a lot of time though.

It doesn't work quite like that... It's more like, you post your first gameplay draft on the drafts forum, then you get feedback, post an update, get feedback, post an update, etc. You will go through several forums, each of which focuses on different aspects of the map: gameplay, graphics, final touches & xml. It's a lot of work, the whole process takes anything from 6 to 18 months and a lot of maps never make it to the end, but if you stick to it and commit to your work, you will make it through eventually.

This is just to let you know what is required if you decide to go through with it. Hope to see your map in the drafting room soon!

Thank you very much for your feedback.

So where shall I start if I try to make a new map of Portugal? Drawing a first map and opening a Portugal 2.0 thread?

I don't want to be unpolite to the author of the current map of Portugal.
