i had some good criticism (i think) typed up but then my power went out and i lost it before posting it... i can't remember all what it was, but i'll try again here...
what are the stars for?
Anaheim is quite a big terit. maybe cut it off around the highway and make it two instead? it looks kinda weird...
are disney land, the compton spire thingys and the miracle mile sign going to be incorparated into the gameplay somehow?
how exactly will the freeways work? can Santa Monica attack Pomona?
i think downtown should have its own bonus because practically all the freeways go through it, so it could be attacked by many places, and attack many places itself. if you do that, then make it neutral.
O.C. should be way more than just +3!
practically all the bonuses should be higher if any freeway terit can attack any other freeway terit...
make holly wood part of the map. have each continent have a landmark, tourist attraction (you have 3 already) and have a bonus for having all of them.
here is my freeway idea: have only certain terits that can be attacked/bombarded along the freeway, shown by exits going off of the freeways. or maybe make it so that the terits with freeways on them can attack 3 teritorries away from it as long as its along the freeway as well.
i must leave now. good luck and happy map making!
