But, the ships being called in the xml and targets list "M Gaia", "I Dis", etc, instead of Gaia, Dis, etc... its more a problem than a help to me. Someone?


Yes Marvaddin...as Wisse commented above, the one letter in front of the names in the xml was so that people would easily identify by looking at the legend what tert they were looking for.
I think it works well, as i am finding it quite useful in my game.
Some of those names are very similar, and they are crowded so close together i thought this was a good suggestion provided by the forum.
Thanks for comments. :)

lol, its because I plan the attacks, and then I will look for the name in the targets list... But the names are never were they should, lol. In fact, I never paid attention to those ship continents (unless, of course, when Im looking at the opponents moves.) :)

i think that when u do give comments wisse...it helps because u get to examine the map before others do, therefore u have the advantage of sorting out a lot of attack routes etc before the general population see the map. For the first time though, didn't you think it was confusing.
i must say i found it confusing writing the xml. :wink:

I've just taken a turn in a game on this map and found I could not attack from my large ships to my opponent's large ships. Could someone please check the xml? I had armies on Lurius, but I could not select it from the drop down list.

Upon Closer inspection, I was reading the legend wrong.

Just noticed a minute thing in the XML:

"G Octavius" is mis-spelled "G Octavious"

Makes no difference to game play or anything, but I'm sure you'll want to update it at some point for perfectionist reasons. :)

btw - this map seems to have gotten a bit of bad press, but I'm enjoying my games on it.

Thanks benjikat...appreciate your post.

I will attend to that fix shortly.
Mmmmm seems most of my maps are getting bad press, so i guess it's nothing new, glad to hear you're enjoying it though. Thanks once again.

Problem with this map is that you can pretty much only win by starting at the camps. In both Actium games I'm in, that is the case.

Query why can't the two sets of two big boats that are next to each other actually attack each other instead of bombard?

Well we're into round 64 and a dead-lock. 3 people each own 1/3 of the board, and get about 30 armies per turn. We just keep building our borders. Everyone's afraid to make the first move - it will surely cost him the game. Problem is it's a flat rate game. I'm getting bored with it so I may just try to rape someone.

I realize this map has long been settled, and I doubt any changes will be made at this point. I'm just now playing my first game on the map, and I initially got confused because the Octavius bonus description is on bottom next to the Antonius camp, and the Antonius bonus description is on top next to the Octavius camp. When I was first trying to figure out the bonus structure, I assumed the ordering of the descriptions would match that of the camps, and it took me some time to figure out what was actually going on.
