Cool!

If those rivers are going to be barriers, I would make them thicker, and line them up more with hex edges, to avoid so many split-hexes.

I'll make them thick enough.... Please notice that the relief adds body to the rivers, it's not just the blue line. And I'll tweak the position a bit...

Work in progress.....

FYI, the name of this map changed. Now it's "Great Britain" in the title. This had me confused for a bit. I removed the older title from the manager, best to delete it locally too to avoid confusion.

Great Britain Top Map

Post by Polsters » Thu Oct 07, 2010 5:01 pm

hey Lupus, really enjoying this map - it's one of the best i've ever played, i like the detail and size - good work..! i'm having a problem when i press 'finished moves' and the game just freezes... any ideas? i'm using Mac OS10.4 - i;ve tried removing and re-loading - but it doesn't load up through the Kbits as normal - just jumps to loaded successfully...

any advice most welcome

Are you using the clever bots? Some of them tend to be really slow..... Especially in the first turn in which they have to "discover" the map.

No Lux here Polsters, Castle Vox is the name of the game.

/me thinks the Forum heading was a dead give away.

Well, a BETA of the Lux version is available as well. I'm not sure if it will pass the exams though....

Polsters, are you referring to the Castle Vox map or the BETA Lux map?
