Okay... We're open to people suggesting useful starting neutral values.

Our current thought process is 2's inside natives, with 5 on borders. Europe not fully decided yet. Probably 4 on landing zone, maybe more maybe less.


how about 10 on all borders, and 20 on all the inside ones?

4 on borders is too low I think, especially if you end up making ports more as it would discourage people from ever using them. I still say 5-6 for natives, possibly more for Europe since their round 2 count will be higher if they have any manner of luck at all.

The ports need a lower number to encourage people to use them, my thoughts where 3

like i said to coleman having rather large numbers on the boarder makes for boaring gameplay.

Id rather keep this conversation to one side till the next update with proposed starting neutrals on it.

I really like how you did this. It is a really good looking map.
Here a suggestion. Maybe you could have six or eight European countries and that would be were you start. You could only attack the new world and you objective are to conquer your colony and one other.

It essentail means reworking the whole map. (wasting a nights work) and changing the idea coleman is going for. He wants an oppertunity to change history. What if the aztecs suppressed the european colonies?

More to the point, I don't think it's any fun to get the same exact experience every time with a player count. Like in the current 6 player conquest maps everyone has the exact same gameplay at first. And the fact that it's 6 player you can be sure somebody started at each start location so the mystery in fog is diminished.

With 9 locations in a lot of player counts you can't be sure if someone is there or not. And with 2 types you can get a different experience more so then a new start location. The natives and Europe feel different when you play them. Which for me is more of a draw then you get to be some Europe country going someplace always.

I think we need to show more popularity before a move, so 3 people need to show up and say something neat that haven't talked yet.

No, they need to go through the other landing areas and then back up them.

This will be obvious when you are playing, but perhaps we should add something to the map saying that. Like Europe has a no crossing borders agreement.

gimil and I also had an internal argument over these current neutrals, they will be changing next version.
