isaiah40, if you can, I think you should post there and explain your reasons and all the "unsaid things"
I tried but i think nothing would be better than a mapmaker's reply.

thanks

I think it could work quite well as one. With this map "USA 2.1" staying an 8 player map.

=D13=

I wonder if this suggestion could be brought to the light of day.

A simple graphics improvement could be to put a picture in the background?

It would fit the style of the other USA maps, eg:

Click image to enlarge.

It obviously has to be quite faded and in just the right place to not make the map look more cluttered, but it should make it look more appealing and less clinical?

I've just realized you have Tucson (Arizona) misspelt.

So I do! Unfortunately since I have recently had both my backup and laptop hard drives crash, I have lost all my map files, so this won't be fixed any time soon!

Awful map. A mess of colour where red/blue/green three way combo is all lost on the page. Dreadful.

Quick question, and I'm sorry if this is not the place to ask this but this is my first time posting on here. My current game (Game #20015512), I have six capitals occupied, which I believe should reward me with +3 troops. However, I am only getting +1 for holding State Capitals (1). Is this some kind of error on the maps part or am I just misunderstanding something?

I’m not 100% sure but i do believe the Interstate capitals bonus override the bonus you are talking about, I can see you are getting 3 times +2 for holding 2 or more capitals along the same Interstate.

Don't trust map inspect for those bonuses, if you check the log, you indeed get +3 for having 6 capitals. Map inspect works fine for straightforward bonuses, but runs into problems with conditionnal borders and other more complicated stuff.

I do see that now, thank you for helping me learn how to properly read the log instead of the map inspect. My apologies for the mistake!

Game #20056005

Trench warfare is on.

2020-06-27 12:26:34 - Killerz999 deployed 18 troops on Great Falls, MT
2020-06-27 12:26:35 - Killerz999 assaulted Calgary from Great Falls, MT and conquered it from neutral player
2020-06-27 12:26:38 - Killerz999 assaulted Tok, AK from Calgary and conquered it from Teranan


Is this intentional? There is no notation on the map saying it should be possible, but I am new so maybe I missed something?

Yes, you can pass through NEUTALS in a trench game.

Yes, you can pass through KILLER NEUTRALS in a trench game.

HitRed

Fixed

Basically since calgary reverts to neutral when held for a turn, there would be no way to get through it if you couldn't attack from it once taken. So as long as you take killer neutrals, you can keep advancing even though it's trench. But as soon as you take one that isn't, you can't do any further attack from it

Very surprised just now I couldn't find a single post pointing out "Tucson" is misspelled on this map.

'Pendleton, OR' is misspelt as 'Pendelton, OR' on the map.
