Another Africa bug

Postby Stopper on Thu Jul 13, 2006 5:19 pm

In game 41033, I couldn't attack from Mauritania to Algeria, even though they sure as hell seem to border each other.

I'm praying now that Mauritania can't be attacked from Algeria, or I've had it.

I'd provide a link to the game, or a screenshot of the map, but not having that level of computer literacy, I, er, can't...

1. SMITH197 attacked Nigeria from Benin and conquered it from joetalk-these territories don't border each other.

2. SMITH197: wow...you cant attack mauritania to algeria? Thats not very clear...-should have been able to

3. I have Burkina Faso as a card-does not exist


1.The previous "togo" is now non existant on this map. It is now Benin. The previous "Benin" is now "Burkina Faso". Benin now borders Nigeria.

2. I am changing things on Algeria and Mautitania as I am typing.

3. uhh, 1 explanes this.

Yes I messed the map up. lol. The map has been recently updated.

Error in map:

Unfair starting positions for 2player sequential

Each player starts with 15 territories. Whoever gets first receives five territories on their first turn, and if they conquer just one terri from an opponent (with 8v3, that's not hard to do); the opponent only gets 4 the first turn.

Not major, but something noteworthy IMO.

this is the case with loadsa maps - whatever you do there is some form of player setup where some1 gets unlucky on some maps...no way is every map gonna be edited to fix 1 army lost.......

It is kinda a big deal. I played 1v1 on this map for the first time the other day and the game was over after my opponent took his first turn because, besides getting extra armies to start with, he also got to fortify his position making it harder for me to take any of his territories back.

Was completely impossible to win simply because he got to go first.

If you started with only 14 territories (4 armies) it wouldn't be that big of a deal because then your opponent has to take 3 of your territories to cause you to lose an army, as opposed to only needing to take 1.

This map needs some cosmetic fixes.
  • The border between Zambia and East Zaire is has a think blue line for about 90% of it. This would imply that a player can't move between these territories when in fact it is allowed since 10% of the border is open. Remove or shorten the blue line as it is misleading.
  • Same issue between Zimbabwe and Mozambique
  • Same issue between East and West Sudan
  • Same issue between Nigeria and Chad

I have an idea that you might want to try, Make the water a light sand color. The lion and giraffe just do not seem at home floating in the water. Anyway it might look good.

I just wanted to point out guys that this map might be outdated in 5 months. Sudan is going to have a final vote on splitting into North and South Sudan. In that case - your West Sudan on this map won't be geographically correct anymore! :mrgreen:

Africa: Too many bonus troops for West Coast?

Postby rogower on Sun Feb 20, 2011 12:52 pm

Simple suggestion. I actually commented on it in our game that is currently being played. Here are my comments:

2011-02-20 10:42:54 - rogower: You know, it seems that the purple region (West Coast) should get four bonus troops, not five. It for sure should not get the same number of bonus troops as the yellow region (The Maghreb).

2011-02-20 10:43:43 - rogower: Maghreb has five territories that are exposed to territories in other regions that all need to be solidified. West Coast only has three. West Coast only has one more territory than Maghreb, too.

2011-02-20 10:45:02 - rogower: Also, Congo is so impossible to defend that I tend to think that its bonus should be even higher, at least eight and maybe even nine. Hell, at nine bonus troops, it would probably still be more trouble than it's worth!

2011-02-20 10:45:07 - rogower: Just my two cents!

I love the Africa map itself but perhaps its designer might agree that this is its one flaw? And might agree to change it? I tend to think that Africa would be a much more popular game if this one flaw were addressed.

You certainly have some valid points, but unfortunately that is one of CC's first maps, so the mapmakers probably aren't around anymore, and lackattack doesn't generally like people messing with the OG maps.

I don't think it was originally even CC's map. I've seen it on another website before :/

I don't think anything will be changed, unless someone is willing to revamp the entire map. However I will send this to the Map Foundry for you, as they would have the most information.
