I don't really agree with this. Bamboo Jack uses a similar feature, and that is far more awkward to work out what goes where.


In fact I never play Bamboo Jack. :)

P.S. - There was a post after my previous one that got deleted. How come?

I wanted to carry on the discussion about the bonuses, particularly for the Sur and Golfo regions. I try to get bonuses based on how many territories you need to defend to hold them. The Sur region, currently worth +2, requires you defend all 3 territories to hold it. The Golfo region, currently worth +3, only requires defense of 2 territories to hold the bonus.

Is this consistent with other maps? I personally would make a strategic decision to set-up somewhere besides Sur.

This is just a point that merits discussion. I really like the map, and I think the blow-up of the central region is an interesting feature.

Best,
Laci

Look again, with the port, you need to hold 3 borders for the Golfo region. And the extra territories within it make it a +3.

This needs an update, I was looking forward to it!

it is visually striking, isn't it?

there needs to be a key to say that GTO is guanajuato, QRO is querétaro and DF is distrito federal, since most people don't know these abbreviations. we can create some space for the key by making the map taller.

I've avoided saying this for several weeks now: fumandomuerte has disappeared from the Foundry and has not been seen for at least a month. Let this map hit the furnace unless the mapmaker says otherwise.

You have the psd (or raw) file and are going to do graphics updates? You have complete control of the progress? Or are you going to work through fund.?

he is a little busy right now, i have the PSD and i will keep in close contact with him and talk to him about the key points. i think he'll probably pop along now and again.

EDIT:
i dont plan to see this through to quench if it gets there, but if fund. is still busy and things go well then sure i will, but im just trying to keep it alive at the moment because i love this map

so we need comments.

The mountains could you some work.
The ocean is a little bland.
I like the textures in the lands. Leave those be.
But I would like to see a little more depth, if possible,to the entire land area. Not a hard bevel, but something to make it stand out a little more.
Why are there 88's next to all the seaport anchors?
fonts look good. Colors are superb. This map screams mexico.

hmm...yes i agree - a bevel would not suit thhis map but im strugging for ideas on what would make it stand out? maybe an outer glow on the land? i dont know...
RjBeals wrote:Why are there 88's next to all the seaport anchors?

no idea! oh they have terit names on the anchors so im guessing that theyre a terit? thats a little confusing...

O I guess the 88's are just a visual sample of where the army's will go. I see they are territs.

yeh - i had the same problem as you at 1st. i wasnt sure if they were terits.

ok ive taken a look at the PSD, took about half an hour to figure things out - no groupings, a lot of the layers were merged to not easy to edit in detail - but things will work out, and of course the language barrier didnt help :P
all of the layers are in mexian, but im slowly translating them.

i was thinking of this for the land to stand out a bit more Rj:

p.s please ignore other details such as the mini map not being there.

Agree. But the small map may be a problem.
I like the outer glow - but I don't like the dolphin & palm trees.
You left the legend out also.

yes i know, i agree but the map playable area does stretch to almost the whole map, so im not sure if there's room

of course, i do not have much time to do much on this either, but when i do i hope to help fund on this. but for the minute, sadly, i dont have time.
