My first thought is that something still needs to be done about showing the attack routes. Why does H34 border H35 and CJ border CK, but C05 does not border H05, C06 does not border H06, H38 does not border H39 and C21 does not border H24?
Mmmm. obviously there are errors in the assault map, which are now altered...thanks for picking these up.
As a side note, why do most of the top territories use two letter identifiers and the rest of the map uses a letter and two digits?
well it started out as alpha but ran out of characters....but this also makes a bit of a difference in the drop list.
After skimming through 14 pages of comments, I was surprised that no one has asked why Catholics would attack Catholics and Huguenots would attack Huguenots? Logically, wouldn't each dueler only attack his neighbors of the opposite persuasion? I realize this would require a pretty major overhaul of the duelers, but I think it could help to make the attack routes more clear in the end, and possibly even remove the need for the border assault symbols.
That would make logical sense, but it doesn't make sense for gameplay under the current layout for differentiation.
If you had all the Huguenots in one clump, i could offer the same reasoning to say why would you assault all you fellow Huguenots?
I'm not sure I really understand the bonus structure, and I have no clue as to whether the gameplay will work with it. I was asking for the ability to do a pre-beta test when I started my map 2 1/2 years ago. Maps like this really need it, and being able to experiment with xml without having to worry about finishing the graphics would save an enormous amount of time and effort, and could lead to the development of more interesting maps.
I can assure you there will be large gameplay testing on this before being released for BETA, now that sandmode is in place.
A minor issue with the legend - it appears that Marguerite has been replaced by another Henri on the map, but not in the Bonus Royale description.
To be fixed next version.
Thanks for your time on this.
