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.

Lackattack, please could you upload these two new images below as per the forum request above to remove the phrase "except to buses" from the impassable section of the legend.
Thanks

Thanks C for your wisdom and the reminder that you were correct. However some of us older folk don't necessarily see things until experience teaches a lesson. :)

Its an interesting play here Carins. The bonuses are quite high and I'm wondering if that was intentional (I apologize for not having read the first 14 pages of this thread-I did read the last three). I'm not sure if its a good or bad thing but it certainly adds more emphasis on breaking your opponents.

As I said a few days ago, I like the map but I'm still rather curious as to why Olympic Park is completely separated from the rest of the territories that make up the same bonus?
