It should. That I believe is a Sully or natty question.

Um, I'm not up to date with the specifics. What exactly is the manual issue in conquership?

Not sure I like the terrain, it looks a little sketchy! I think you definitely need to touch it up a bit!

This is easily the best looking map on the site so this is BS.

For the besieged, you state that all city regions connect to each other. That means I can attack Dock 1 from the Castle right? If so, I don't think you need all the attack arrows within the city.

Other than that, it looks like the bonuses are good, things look pretty much balanced. That said, I'll get Ian to look this over.

No need to get defensive DiM ;)! The terrain in this map is not as good as your other maps. You can do better than this! Sure it's not a sketch which is why I said "sketchy" but it doesn't look good enough compared to what I expected. That's the point I was trying to make.

Something you've concluded after carefully examining them all I assume :)!?

yeah, sorry that line of text with "all city regions..." was supposed to be deleted when i added the connections inside the city :)

so the connections in the city are the ones that have to be taken into account.

it's not about being defensive. it's just that sketchy is completely opposite of what this is. you could have said something like "this doesn't seem to be as detailed as your other maps" or "you should try and add more landscape features".

anyway, the map is detailed enough and it also has plenty of landscape features for an area this size. in fact it might even have too man.
it's rather unrealistic to have in such a small area a lake, some hills, a river, a gulf, cliffs, sea, beach and forests.
i could have easily made sea on one side and plain on the other and it would still have been very realistic.
if i start adding mountains volcanoes, marshes and swamps and who knows what else it will look bad.

Balloon is still misspelled in the legend ;)

Another thing, the ships look slightly blurry for some reason... Is there any way to make them more crisp, like the artilleries and towers are?

Very cool looking map. One suggestion I have is to consider adding some sort of indicator to the legends at the top, which groups components together in bullets, since that is essentially what they are.

Not unlike what natty dread did in his (smaller / more limited) Eurasia map legend perhaps: viewtopic.php?f=64&t=159163&start=675#p3615230

Keep up the good work.

DiM, one last GP point. Right now, round 3 nukes is going to be giving wins to the attackers as the castle is only a single territ. You have two tents so it is not a problem for the attackers. Any chance you could even it out by making the castle twice as big and have the 5 from quarter 1 as the castles second 5. Be a shame to lose a game in round 3.

fair point. i'll make quarter 2 neutral and make the castle in 2 terits.

DiM, right now, red has a way to advance all 5 of his troop sets without tripping over themselves. Blue cannot do this. With the 3 lots of 5 at the back now, they can only get into the fight by one territ (market). This gives the attackers a big advantage when it comes to expanding into there bonus areas. Can you change the arrow between Quarter 1 and market to Q1 and Mill. This will allow blue to move 2 of his 5s into the fight quicker.

As for the castles yard, can you make the walls bigger so the territ sits in the yard? Also, call it courtyard.

Nice with a map where you only have to plan for one type of game :). But it also means it has to be perfect for that type of game! Hopefully we'll see a lot of 1v1 tourneys on this map :).
I noticed that some arrows cross over the ships territory labels. It looks a little messy. The arrow between Ship 1 and Assault ship 2 could be lowered a bit. The arrow between Base Ship 2 and Supply ship 2 crosses a letter. So does the arrow between Supply ship 1 and 2. If you remove the line where they cross the banner it would look better.

Great work DiM. Surprised you have left it this long for the update though.

Can we get a stamp for this man so he can do the small. Please.

i've 99% given up on the foundry.
if it weren't for the work i've put in the maps i have active i'd simply bin them and be done with it.
