I've got one 3 player game going on this map, and so far, I think I am liking it. It's proving to be a pretty fun game with fog of war.

It's Nukiba on the map and Nukina in the XML.

if esc spoils dont listen to anybody about the bottom left of the map it is the best starting point.. love the map just very few seem to join it. the reson being there is no temples there so others are fighting over the temple area so you just build and wipe them out once your stack is big enough.. :mrgreen:

2 examples..

Just finished my first game on this map and really enjoyed it.

Can I ask a few question about bonuses though, coming it at from the point that I have only read the map, not this thread.

I had 2 temples and 4 villagers and only received +1, is the bous for a temple and 4 villages limited to a maximum of 1, i.e. I though I would get +2 as I had 2 temples or would I need 8 vilagers with 2 temples.

Also the map said +2 auto deploy on the base but I only ever received a +1, if that is to remove the 1 lost through the virus, maybe the ledger should reflect this as its abit misleading. Or I would have forted the +2 away and been able to be a troop up each turn.

The writing was fine to read and it played well, love the aspect of having two different objectives too.
Im foeing to get medals, unless your 1 of the 6 people who will remain on my list, message me if you want a game.

After playing a game, I can understand the desire for some to move either a temple or a volcano to the lower left...

I too am really enjoying the map. I also see the same problem with the military base +1 auto deploy rather than +2 in my game, Game 10745359. I also think there should be more in that bottom left area. Also, I haven't read the whole thread, but has there been a discussion regarding the temples possibly being neutral 2 instead of neutral 3? I'm not sure how many people, even with 4 villages will be taking a temple for only an additional +1.

temples aren't just giving that bonus but they're part of a winning objective so they must not be that easy to take.

as for the military base thing. if anybody has a good wording for the legend then i'm all ears.

assuming i recover my map files. i'll hear more news tomorrow. [-o<

That makes sense.

as for the military base thing. if anybody has a good wording for the legend then i'm all ears.

So it is a +2 but -1 because it's in the "red zone"? If that's the case you could theoretically have the legend just say it's a +1 auto deploy, or on the back end make it a +3 minus 1, so that it is a true +2 auto deploy. That would keep you from having to change the legend, just the XML.

Or make the military base immune from the decay and put that in the legend

how about military base gives +1 (autodeploy) and is immune to the virus.

I think that would be more clear and acceptable.

First, they're villages, not villagers, right?

Second, aren't the villages supposed to be +1 for 2? So, if you had 4 villages and a temple, you should be getting +3 at least.

What are you talking about? He has 18 regions and 2 "towns". Exactly just as blue does, but blue has +4, not +5.
