I thought the freeways were not impassable to buses?

I enjoy the map, it's very fun and different :)

Just one thing though... it seems weird that Olympic Park is completely isolated from the rest of the territories that make up the same bonus. I know it's too late now, probably, but that ped crossing might make more sense if it was moved from Auburn-Parramatta to Lidcombe-Olympic Park.

Otherwise, I love it!

I'm confused...

Northbridge is a bus. Then there is a freeway separating that from Nth Sydney. According to the map, shouldn't those be able to attack each other? :?

The map also says that bus stations can attack other bus stations. This is the intent of the statement about freeways.

the wording could probably use a tinker.

I'd remove the "(except for buses)" portion of that part of the legend to avoid confusion. The buses can attack other buses (or however it is phrased) is satisfactory on that end.

I agree, I had the initial confusion at first too.

Maybe if the "(except for buses)" was taken out and the bottom text was changed to: "Bus Depots can attack any other Bus Depot" to reinforce that freeways aren't a block to them.

just removing the "(except for buses)" portion is more than satisfactory. the changes you suggested to the lower right legend don't do anything except add more words.
