What Makes This Map Worthy of Being Made:
[*]It is a capital listed on the Classic map, and thus deserves to be represented on CC
[*]A competition now exists for PNG, so it will be a sister map for that
[*]It is in a similar style to my first map Cairns Coral Coast
[*]The names on the map are in Toki Pisin which is native to the country
[*]The army circles signify cultural neck-gear that some natives wear which are made from pigs teeth (some to show wealth)
[*]Don't want to waste a good map that was supposed to be in a competition

Now that I see it....let me say that certainly you can't throw this away.
Nice project! :)

A question, is it possible to reduce the small to have it within the limits (1000x800)?

Yes. I can reduce the overall size, but it will be a bit tight in those smaller regions.
It will come down to 892 x 800 for small, large TBA.

Cairnswk, I like the look of this map. It has the aesthetic feel of other projects you've worked on, but it also feels fresher. Good work, and good luck.

Is this intended to be a map where each player starts with only one region; a tribe?
Being confined to one region, especially where they're unbalanced and can only attack one bonus, doesn't make for good gameplay.

However, I feel it would work well if each player started with a tribe, but also with a bunch of ordinary regions as in other classic-gameplay maps. This may already be your intention, and I'm sorry if I missed an obvious clue somewhere.

Otherwise, maybe add a little texture to the regions and move to the main map foundry, yes?

ManBungalow, thanks for your comment. :)
the presence of only a couple of neutrals would suggest to me that players start all over the place as in a classic scenario.
I will however clarify that in the front page statement. Thanks for pointing that out.
Yes each player will start with a tribe so they have the option of using the tribe invasion and consolidating internal other regions also. txture issue will be dealth with in graphics. :)

How the hell do you come up with this stuff so easily? This looks great, and makes my map look like my 3 year old daughter made it. :lol: You are the man. Keep it coming.

Seamus76. thanks for kudos, but your map is also inspiring for the skills and artwork and concept that you have, it brings a different perspective to the foundry....we all have different software and levels of skill, so don't think your map is any lesser than any others that have been progressed.

How do i come up with it...creativity, time, lots of research, desire and enjoyment of what i do here.

so here is Version 4.
1. the map has been downsized as per request from tnb80
2. textures have been added

To be honest cairns, I really don't think you will need those army circles.

isaiah40...these are created as representational of the neck-gear that natives wear (some to show wealth) made from pigs teeth.
I am sorry but they stay as they give the map a slight "cultural" difference as part of the overall aesthetic :)
