Madness (Map Bug)

Postby jennifermarie on Tue Nov 27, 2007 7:56 am

<-------------------->

<Subject>: Madness (Map Bug)

* Concise Bug Description
, including the word 'BUG:'
Bug, in game 1274950, it wouldn't let me fortify from entrance to andy, and it isn't listed in the instructions that you can't do so.


<Body>:

* Bug: Fortifying problem from entrance to Andy
* Detailed Description: I tried to fortify from the entrance to andy on the Madness (our house) map. For some reason, it wouldn't let me, and it isn't listed anywhere that it isn't allowed. If it is a 1 way border, it should be made more clear.
thanks!
* Found Where: http://www.conquerclub.com/game.php?game=1274950

Front path to entrance is one way. There's an arrow, but I agree, it could be more clear.

*edit* Looking at the map again, it is in the legend, and there's only one one-way arrow it could refer to.

Ah now i'm on your level...sorry to be so vague....would you prefer if the grass were put in as an impassable.


Yes, b/c it's not obvious. I walk across the grass all the time. :wink:

yes it seems silly that you cant just hop over the grass. I would prefer a wall put there instead of making the grass impassible, because really... when is grass ever impassible?

Given that on a standard map we usually take for granted that a territory borders another when it adjoins that territory, i would have thought this was a clear cut case that back path does not adjoin patio. Where is the confucsion? Walking across grass doesn't really enter the equation, since the grass there doesn't have an army shadow on it.
But for the sake of the clarity i will put up that grass is an impassable.

For the sake of those who don't bother to read the map properly also or can't interpret instructions, and this appears to happen all the time, i will clarify the front path to entrance one-way situation with some text.

The assumption is the grass is part of either territory. And nowhere is grass defined as either passable or impassable.

Wicked i really think you are taking this one step TOO FAR. There is clear delineation between these two territories.

But please note the new destructions...just for you!

I'm pretty sure this has been reported before and fixed XML has been submitted - I assume it hasn't been uploaded yet...

For Future Reference (FFR) these sorts of errors should go in the map topic itself...
