So I suppose this is a bonus structure question?


Remember that the Special borders all of these territories.

The best way to find out is to play :)

I'll post the CB and small version this weekend in hopes of getting a graphics sticker.

I feel that having 5 such bonuses makes it okay.

All good points, guys. I just thought I would throw it out in the off chance it was overlooked. As Dana says, the beta stage will tell for certain. :D

dana, while you are doing the final things for the small map, can I get you to look at the star in the title. The top and bottom two points have a bad look to it. Can you try to smooth them out a tad.

Ok here's all the versions I think I need to deliver to get a graphics sticker?

I worked on the star in the logo a little in an attempt to clean it up more but we are only talking a few pixels at the current resolution. I have a much larger version if it's an issue, but in terms on game play it will make no difference.

Ok-ok... I've got 2 tiny issues, get these cleared up and you should be ready to go. The star in the title is... off. The center of the star has some pixelly edges and the skirt effect is uneven. The bottom right point doesn't seem to match the rest of the text at all.

And forgive my dirty mind.... but what is that bit sticking out of the Outer Skirt? Might be best to just round that out.

I don't actually like this map, but as a point of fairness I have to come to its defense here.

The "cow" in question is actually a steer -- genetically male, but not functionally male because the testicles were removed during its infancy. The protrusion is, as you suspect, the front of the penile envelope. However, since this is a steer, its penis was never used for reproduction but only for urination, so even the most extreme puritan should not be offended.

You're right about the star, though...:)

You can't have oxtail without an ox, AKA a castrated bull. If he leaves that "bit" out you are referring to, the map will be inaccurate. Maybe we should round out Florida from the USA map? :P

I am in agreement with Dukasaur and FT.
Leave the knob alone.
It makes me want to never eat skirt again.

I just questioned the necessity of "showing it" it is all. If everyone is fine with it, then I drop my concern.

The concern about the star remains though.

I believe that's simply because of the angle of that point. The effect is the same as any where else on the star, but because that point leans into the drop shadow, the effect becomes less noticeable.

The observation about the outer skirt just made this map even better.
