I'd recommend a jay as he's the most outspoken republican in the forums.

Thanks for the name change btw.

BOO HISS etc on the opening of a new border.

Also don't delete your previous versions. Need comparisons.

Opened a border between the Lobbies. A back door is needed for gameplay(and as in real life, the loobies have more than one back door).

Changes the name; US Senate.
Implemented US spelling.
Changed bonuses.

Best place you could put it.. because lobbies are actually where there may be common ground.. that being corruptness.

Only a small point but west security and east security are different. The west horizontally aligned with security but the east isn't. Does that explain it? Anyway, otherwise looking like a great map and graphically its really fresh. Good going, keep up the good work.

wow, awesome map. the bonuses seem a little bit unbalanced though.

Well now Pam isn't spaced as nice as she was. XD

To the person that thinks the bonuses seem unbalanced...

Democrats 14 Territories - 7 Bonus (4 Borders)
Republicans 14 Territories - 7 Bonus (4 Borders)
Podium 9 Territories - 6 Bonus (6 Borders)
Liberal Lobby 8 Territories - 4 Bonus (3 Borders)
Conservitive Lobby 8 Territories - 4 Bonus (3 Borders)
Print Media 6 Territories - 3 Bonus (4 Borders)
TV Media 6 Territories - 3 Bonus (4 Borders)

Podium is a little buff because it has more borders with other continents then anyone else but maybe it could be set back to 5, I don't know.

6 borders for the podium? Are my eyes deceiving me? I only see three.

Ah, alright. That makes more sense. But borders is slightly more important than attack routes (though they are important also).

If the names aren't situate as they are for any particular reason, you could consider swapping both jake and jane for Ron and Pat, as they'd fit better into the small space and not touch the circle or borders. Also I'm not overly keen on Tim and Tom (and maybe Pam and Pat), very similar and could lead to mixups. Could a different name be used? let me know if I'm being pedantic.

Moved some more names (Jake, Jane, Ron, and Tom).

I dont think getting confused over Pam-Pat or Jake-Jane will be a problem since they aren't adjacent. There nicely short and save a lot of space. I'd prefer to keep them.

Good point. Only problem is when deploying. Several times I've deployed to the wrong territory becuase I've been lax and clicked what i thought was the right name. Tom / Tim is very similar. I know its the players fault but do you not think it would be worth changing just that one?

I don't think he means on the gameboard adjacent, but countries near each other in the drop down. If you can, I suggest keeping similar alike names (Tim, Tom, Tam?), to a minimum or not at all.

There are billions of names, and easily thousands of names that could work for this map that are short and unique, and easy to differentiate from others.

Actually, going the route of other 'worldly' names, makes sense for the map. Considering nearly anyone (lets pretend at least :)) can get into the senate with the right dedication! (And money, power, etc...but that is a different thread!)

Postby Fitz69 on Thu Jan 11, 2007 5:37 pm

I'm going to start a new poll regarding the left-right border. One that is a bit more specific as I belive some have voted after I opened up "Tabloid" -"CNN".

1. Left-Right connection ONLY through the Podium.
2. Left-Right connection through the Podium AND "Tabloid"-"CNN".
3. Left-Right connection through the Podium AND "Education"-"Tobacco".

The current poll should end tomorrow.
