As a last minute change in Version 27 above....
1. lightened the objective text to make it more legible
2. Changed the objective to read: Axis Partners, Gazala, Gazala Line and All Tobruk....that means the 4 garrisons, airfield and town.

Xml already addresses those areas. :wink:

Tell me to go away - but I think the army numbers in the tanks would look better 1 pixel lower... and with a squared off army "circle" at the top?!

C...i won't tell you to go away, but is it really necessary, afterall the design of a tank is mostly oval, and these army numbers are also oval. putting a squared top in there just wouldnt gel for me.

Qwert, when i was CA, the only time this would be approved was if there was a lot of territories and the legend was really cramped.

Since then i beleive, there has been a halting to this as dimension issue quieten down again.

But if you need extra 30px you must ask with good reason for extra 30px - more than one reason.

Hope this helps.

Awesome map!
I've always stayed away from the more complex styles of maps, but after playing Waterloo a couple times I'm developing a liking for them.

Another stunning piece of graphics here!

Quench!

Forza AZ wrote:Hi,

I checked the XML for Battle of Gazala and found these things:

I see continents in the Objective and in some bonusses (Axis Partners, Alied Partners). Is that a new XML feature? So far I haven’t seen continents there. And for Alied Partners there is (4) behind Towns and (2) behind Airfields in the legend, but when you need the continents listed in the XML you need all Towns and Airfields I think. There is also a required tag behind Axis and Alied, but that is the total number of territories/continents listed, so is that needed?

-In the legend it says that tanks start neutral (1). In the XML there is a 2 neutral.
-21st Panzers C has borders in the XML with Indian 3rd and Free French, which are not connected on the map. Also there is a 2 neutral for 21st Panzers C in the XML, but not in the legend.
-21st Panzers E has borders with 150 Inf. In the XML, while it has a border with 21st F, Free French and Indian 3rd on the map
-21st Panzers F has no neutral 2 in the XML
-21st Panzers G has a border with 21st C in the XML, while it borders 150 Inf on the map
-22nd Art. Brigade has bombardments to 21st E and D in the XML, while this should be 21st F and G
-British 7th M Brigade has bombardments to 21st C and D in the XML, while this should be 21st E and F
-Indian 3rd Brigade has bombardments to 21st B, C and G in the XML, while this should be 21st B, D and E


Forza AZ


Gmil, thanks for pushing for a check on this because however it happened lanyards managed to get the old coordinates in his latest xml posting and the centering was all out after i had centered it back on P30. Lucky i keep copies of most everything, but still an hour wasted having to place new coordinates in the latest xml version.

lanyards, please copy the xml link below, and re-name it as your latest version in case you have to do something more on this.

Forza AZ....I checked the xml again and there were a few small errors in it.

here is the results from the latest check 16.3.08 2:37pm my time EST.

Test results:

Warning: Territory Rommel has border 15th Panzers, but not vice versa

Warning: Territory Rommel has border 90th Panzers, but not vice versa

Summary: 0 errors and 27 warnings detected in _gazala_new.xml (14 continents, 70 territories)


I have checked these and these are all the one-way attacks. Note there is no one-way attack from Airfield Rotonda Segnali to the Rommel and Panzerarmee Africa.

Also, the objective is now listed in full territories version and produces no errors in the Jota XML Tool.
