I'd suggest Aquaria 2 and maybe Ye Olde Newland 2, Texas 5 and Voodoo Bayou 4. I think whatever you choose, Texas should probably have the same bonus as Silicon Overmind, as they're very similar.

Except for Aquaria, the other three could probably stay as they are if you decide you want generally high bonuses for the map, but then I think you should boost Overmind to 6 to make it the same as Texas. Even Aquaria isn't that crazy as a 3 if you decide you want them high.

Note that the bonus for each continent is intentionally one higher than it normally would be, to compensate for the fact that each continent contains one irradiated country: Aquaria gives you +3 armies for the continent and -1 army for SoCal.

Texas should probably have the same bonus as Silicon Overmind, as they're very similar.


Mmm. It's currently one higher because it has one more country and borders one more foreign continent. Anyone else want to give an opinion on whether they should be the same or different?

Well lets see...

If only it didn't take so long to type, I would respond more!

---I'll just say, are you doing anything with white arrow connectors? Perhaps look into something more in tune to the map.

I like the way it is coming along! I look forward to being able to play on it!

About the bonuses, I believe Texas should have the same of Voodoo and Silicon (probably 6). And Old New England and even Aquaria could have a bonus of 4 (3 with the penalty) Aquaria is not that easy to hold, and ONE has 6 countries, so...

I would have to disagree with all of that. I like his current.

maybe u should put negatives for owning 5 or more radiations. This would be a negative to a player who was dominating the game and give change to the weaker players.

I think this might be the final version (whew):

(Full-sized map hidden behind the link.)[/url]

I boosted Silicon Overmind, due to popular demand, but kept the Voodoo Bayou where it was (it's only got three borders). Since Andy suggested doing something with the arrows, I decided to go with a rusted feel for them. So, if no major issues are brought up by tomorrow, I'm going to go ahead and submit this as it is.

                  Final Forge


---The United States of Apocalypse Map has reached the ‘Final Forge’ Stage. I've revived this thread from the pits of the Foundry furnace and have examined the contents. Nearly every major concern has been addressed. If there are any other current concerns, please make your voice heard. There will be two days for you to post any objections; if no one has posted any protest after two days the map will be deemed finished with the 'Foundry Brand' of approval and will be submitted for live play. If after two days there is still discussion going on it may continue until said discussion has reached the conclusion that the map has reached its final and polished version.

Post questions and concerns if any.

And to start things off...


--Really only a minor thing, have you looked into other images for the bridges? They seem more like Sim City road slugs rather than bridges spanning the river.
