I misread colony for territory.

Glad to see beta! =D> =D> =D>

U owe me a game IH.

BTW. From what I have reviewed you may want to consider upping the Tybee roads French ship to 4 neutral. (It is easier to defend) That bonus seems to be the game in 1 v 1 anyway. Being dropped on those landing terts are sweet.

Ah I see... you mean the words "Virginia" and "Maryland" and not the colonies Virginia and Maryland. Yeah... hmm... I tilted the thing as a whole, I'll see what I can do about it.

I'd rather not put in a starting neutral... I really hate those in maps.

But I am receptive to lowing the bonus for Georgia/Tybee Roads. In the games that I have played, that is the bonus most gone after and pays out the most for the effort required to get it.

@Natty - I changed the words so they all tilt together and along the same lines as the borders. Instead of making a number of graphical changes, I'm going to hold off a while in case any more come up and make one new upload altogether.

Yeah ok, it wasn't a huge issue anyway, just a minor nitpick. So by all means wait if you get some more changes to do before sending for an update... thanks for fixing it though, you know I'm a perfectionist with these things... if something is 2 pixels in the wrong direction it can bother me immensely ;)

Unless of course I've missed some glaringly obvious mistakes!

http://www.conquerclub.com/game.php?game=6494025

The ships/landing points bonus is for British Ships and their landing points. The French ships, on the other hand, require holding the ship and the nearest colony. So you're getting the bonus for Brit/landing points but not for the French Ships. French ships would be holding Tybee Roads and all of Georgia or Chesapeake Bay and all of Virginia.

I misread colony for territory.

will it help to re-word the bonus so that it says hold a french ship and all of the nearest colony?

I'd like to nit a minor historical pick. As a native Northern New Jerseyite, Fort Lee wasn't really called Fort Lee until the 20th century. In the revolution, Fort Lee was simply General Lee's encampment on the NJ side of the river, as Fort Washington was Washington's encampment on the NY side. And that was in late 1776, after the declaration.

Anyhow... feel free to ignore me, but Bergen is probably a more appropriate name.

Well I'll be... historical nitpicks are crucial to a historical map, so I'm down to change it. Thanks for giving me a more appropriate name to replace it with and saving me the trouble.

The latest image includes Natty's and Ian's suggestions.

The minimap colony names look fine on the large map, but they still look odd on the small map...

Compare Delaware vs New Jersey & Maryland, Massachusets & New Hampshire vs New York...

Yeah I see it, plus they're tilted a little too strongly for the paper its on.

OK, it occurred to me that I ought to change the XML so Fort Lee read Bergen.

May I suggest the following change to the XML? As it stands now, one might think one needed to hold both French ships to get either bonus.
Code: Select all
<continent>
<name>Tybee Roads and Georgia</name> <!--new name instead of "French Ships and Georgia" -->
<bonus>2</bonus>
<components>
<territory>Tybee Roads</territory>
<territory>Savannah</territory>
<territory>Ocmulgee</territory>
<territory>Chattahoochee</territory>
</components>
</continent>

<continent>
<name>Chesapeake Bay and Virginia</name> <!--new name instead of "French Ships and Virginia" -->
<bonus>2</bonus>
<components>
<territory>Chesapeake Bay</territory>
<territory>Yorktown</territory>
<territory>Roanoke</territory>
<territory>Arlington</territory>
<territory>Appalachia</territory>
</components>
