I don't know about this this one Gnome. :?:
If you don't want to hurt someone feelings then why do say somthing like this at all. Why don't you wait until you see what is developed down the track. If after v20 or so which some poeple's maps get to, the graphics haven't move on, then you ask this question. But to ask it after v4 and still in New ideas.....! Not everyone Gnome has your drawing skills also and i am not one of those people.
Further what i don't understand is why use this tiny text in size 7 to say to the mapmaker don't be mad at me. Why hide behind this. Can't you be open about what you have to say?

As to the remainder of you items in that, i'll answer them later.


sorry cairnswk but sometimes I'm in a bad mood and than everything looks bad to me...that are times I even hate all of my maps...and the tiny text was just a joke...afcourse I don't want to hurt you...and when I sometimes say stupid things...try to ignore them...I'll get sorry about them soon or later...

can I suggest you move the armie circle of 'Des Hurworth' a bit farther from te border, also Gazala's circle maybe?
And rommels tank E is a bit close to 'ritchie's 8th'

The support is a little iffy on this one. But it is 2-1, so I guess that is good enough if you think so. It's better support then you had with Sydney anyway.

I'll move you when you think you ought to; meaning I'll let you decide your fate on this one.

Cairns I mean like, what excaclty are the atack routes? Is it the blue dot-lines or those other weird lines? You have to simplify the map and label in the legend.

You can attack along either set of lines. To go from Allied to Allied - you attack along the blue dots. To go from Axis to Axis - you attack along the red dashes. Purple-ish pink for Gazala link and deep blood red for Cauldron and Brown for Torbuk and what not.

the complicated-ness of it is the main problem. i prefer a map where it is a pretty straight forward process figuring out everybody's bonuses wihtout using BOB.

too much for my brain to sort out right now... lower case "d" on defenses please. The capital throws off the reading of the passage.

coming along ...

not exactly sure who's in Fortress Tobruk - are the three towns on the brown road included?

Is there any significance for the distinction between axis/allied attack lines (or is it more for setting the scene)

I'm thinking for Rommel's tanks, seen as there are so many of them and have a bonus only of three at the moment, what if they were set up similar to your planes on pearl harbour? (Poss. for Panzerarmee too.)
The mortars would be a good counter to this too - which, also, i'm not sure i understand them either. Is it a proximity thing, or attack line based? Or that they can't attack backwards to allied (i.e. graphically)territories? - or does enemy mean just the opposite player in the game, even if they are on gobi and you indian 7th?

Think the ship's red's too bright for the rest of the map.

Anyway, going good.

Can't wait to see the Desert Rats instalment with the aussies!

no...only one Tobruk is inluded in Fortress Tobruk.

there is a difference for Rommels tanks, as their advancement will start B,C,D,E terts i think it is as neutrals. Plus it also helps to define who was on whose side to some extent. i might change that however, if anyone has a really good suggestion.

Rommel will have three regions sts...that can advance taking over neutral terts B,C,D,E.
I have yet to identify the attack possibilities for the mortars...range etc.
I might do it like PH with the AA Batteries...i am not sure yet. Suggestions welcome.

Think the ship's red's too bright for the rest of the map.

OK will dunk that a little.


Anyway, going good.

Yes i think i should have done that one first...but never mind.
