I like it, great start.

One thing, the bonuses are way overvalued.

New England should be 3
Continent right below it should be 4
Continent with Pennsylvania+Maryland should be 5
Below that should be 4
Bottomost continent should be 3

Hmmm, you also need continent names somewhere...

PS. Oh and the bonus for holding all ships should be a 4

Ohh I love this. Can't wait to see it develop!

So with the British Canada auto-deploy, it starts as neutral, correct? How many?

I agree with Ink about the changes in bonuses, right now they are too big.

I really like the size of the map and the design.

PS - Killer neutrals are fun :D

I say include Britain as a group of ships or something besides Canada.
Cool Idea!

I love looking through old maps on this site... http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/historic ... 763-76.jpg

And found one that you may have already looked upon, but perhaps it could be of some use. Perhaps instead of "Wilderness" you could incorporate Native American Lands.

As far as the bonuses are concerned, I ran the numbers through one of those spreadsheets and these are the numbers it gave me. Perhaps if I knocked all bonuses down by 1? Or I could try a different spreadsheet.

Inkcl0sed - You're right about naming the continent's, Ink. Totally slipped my mind.

InsomniaRed - Well, I was thinking about letting British Canada fall into the lap of one lucky player. My reasoning is this: The armies of the Congress had a major problem up north with British garrison's. Allowing for a player to accumulate up there brings this concern to the minds of the other players. The difficulty of the Canadian base is that it has to go through a whole bunch of killer neutrals to be effective or determine what goes on in the colonies.

I'm definitely open to suggestion on that though. Perhaps I should host a poll and see what everyone thinks.

Neon - Thanks!

Sailorseal - Britain is included in the ships over to the left. The ships all link up to a historical event during the Revolutionary War. For example, Boston is where the blockade took place and where the British retreated to Nova Scotia after Bunker Hill. Brooklyn Heights are where the British invaded at, I believe there was a naval engagement at Virginia Capes (French an British) and Charlestown was an invasion point for the British (and also retreat).

So Britain is pretty well represented, especially with Canada up there an its auto deployment. I just don't think there's much room to fit England onto this map. Especially considering England had (relatively) little to do with the revolution in comparison with the Colonial troops that were already stationed on the N. American continent. By 1788 The British were in full war with France anyway, so they had bigger fish to fry, and sending infantry or even many ships to N America was really a ludicrous idea considering giant France was right across the channel.

Mr. Benn - Thanks. When you said it took long to load for a second I was worried that my map was too big of a file. Not that I'm glad your computer is slow, but yeah...

AndyDufresne - That's a good idea an I think I'll use it. I took a look at the map you linked up an I can't find any Indian names, short of a few forts or what have you. Maybe you're eyes are better than mine and I'm not looking in the right place...

I know, its so much fun, I do it when I have time :)


Having personally attempted a revolutionary war map 2 times, I wish you the best of luck with this, and I think you've finally come across a good way to do this :)

1) The grunge (I think its grunge above everything, looks like it to me) needs to be lowered in opacity a bit IMO
2) Maybe add some grunge (or whatever you used) to the mini-map also?
3) Maybe ships can bombard? lol random idea xD

I wish you the best of luck with this map, as kyle said...

Postby Juan_Bottom on Mon Feb 23, 2009 9:49 am

It's a very pretty map and I like it.

But is it only me, or does this map not really feel like a Revolutionary War map? To me it just looks like a map of New England. I'm not a mapmaker or anything, but isn't there a way to incorporate something more "Revolutiony?" Adding forts, cities, Vally Forge, governers, tories, frontersmen, Indians, prison ships, anything... I dunno.... maybe just some pictures or short history lesson about the map.....
But for a new map it is quite beautiful. Looks wise it's playable.

I think you're putting too much power in the British Garrison. Not only does it auto deploy one each turn but the terts that can attack into it auto kill to 3N each turn.

I have to say that I think Juan Bottom is totally off point. My initial reaction was that this map slanted more towards the southern states. I'd like to see possibly York (which is where the Colonial government fled when the British invaded Philadelphia) added to Pennsylvania, maybe the Green Mountains added in as a tert in NY.

The other thing I might do, you've got about 6 states that are split up so that they're not named and then 7 that are named as the state (Mass, NH, NJ, Md, Del, Con, RI). Perhaps naming them after things that are in the state/colony rather than after the colony itself to keep the same feel throughout. Mass could easily be Bunker Hill or Concord or Lexington (or split into 2 of these). New Jersey could be the Hessian army being surprised at Trenton, for DE, if you can't find something you could take a slight creative liberty and move the Battle of Brandywine 6 miles over the border to DE but I suspect there is something there-or you could just do Wilmington.

From top to bottom, I'd say something like: 3, 4, 4, 5, 4, 3, ships - 4. But it's only another suggestion. I don't really know, that could be too little.

Also, I really don't know about the unfair 'luck' drop of the +1 territory. Maybe if you leave it neutral the reward could be a +2 if someone gets through the neutrals to get there. But then again, I like it as a +1. Still not sure yet about having it be a lucky drop terr.

Overall, I agree with the other comments, and this is a great start.

I like the idea of leaving it neutral with a bonus of +1 (or +2), or what if its deployed on that territory?

Oh sorry, I wasn't very clear in my post, I see that now :? I meant a +1 or +2 as an autodeploy not a bonus. But I still like the idea of it starting neutral.
