you're right. the killer neutrals. but as you said they don't work here.



well...looks as though this is finsihed for now then...ON VACATION.



what? don't be crazy. why vacation?


perhaps vacation would be appropriate until we can achieve neutralisation by decay with the xml.

ps...DiM, thanks for removing the animated sig, it has made the world of difference to the performance of my computer. :)

Thanks for making changes that reflect Galapagos a lil better.

Having lived there I can not wait to play this map.
Thanks for all the work.

as far as I know, this isn't even on the radar for potential XML changes so perhaps it's better to ask if it even has potential of being accepted before going on vacation.

Version 9...attack routes.

I put some lines on this version and moved some terts around....unfortunately i have to go to work shortly....if anyone has time they might like to analyse this and see if these can be improved upon to create more balanced routes to get at least one water and one treasure bonuses.

Reef 1 still has an advantage in its isolation, and it's only 4 territs to occupy all bonus types. Reefs 2&3 are still gonna be duking it out for Macharana, err, Marchena. Otherwise, it does look much more balanced.

I really like the progress this map is making. However, I think there are some minor issues.

The biggest one I see is that a few reefs are only 1-2 territories away from each other. This makes it really easy for people to be eliminated. I'd suggest breaking a few territories up, like the Isla Marchena.

Also, does Reef 6 only border F1?

glad to see there is a lot of discussion around the mechanics... you guys sort it all out and tell me when I should stamp it, ok? :wink:

From reading the legend I'm uncertain as to what the Luggers connect with... each other? If so, it'd be simpler to just say so.

OK...i'd like to get this map moving again.

I'm considering if we could have the killer neutrals working on this map.

A few questions on this:

1) Does Isla Marchena border G2, S1, and S2? It currently looks like it doesn't, however, I would suggest that you make this more defined.

2) Reef 6 & Reef 7, in addition to Reef 7 & Reef 8, only have 2 territories separating them. Is there any way to could remedy this? Because if you left it as is, the players on reef 6, 7, & 8 are very vulnerable to being knocked out early, and that's no good.

1. G2...yes S1 and S2 no. i think that is quite clear as there is open sea in that area.

2. you have mentioned Reef 7 twice there, so i don't quite get the gist of your ??

Could you re-examine that in light of the change in the map, please.

The description of Luggers is very unclear. Do they act as an attack-only teleport to divers? Attack and defend? Or do they not do any of those?

hi TaCKtix...thanks for the comment...i've change it in the map below to "Dive luggers connect between each other" that should be clearer.
