This is my new year surprise. I bet that you didnt know where is Székely Land. Now you can explore it.

I will make some bonus color changes to choose a better palette yet is time for other changes as well.

I once met a talkative man named "Erdély", who told me that his name was the Hungarian word for Transylvania.

Good looking map... Maybe there is some strategic potential as well.

"Sylvan" is the latin word of "forest" or "erdő" in hungarian, "trans" is the "waythrough" thus Transylvania is "Overtheforest" in hungarian "Erdőntúl" or Erdély.

Székely Land is not known about their advanced industry or high tech infrastructure but about their piece of idillic carpathian landscape with rich natural and cultural values.

Im thinking on a West-East distribution with 5-5 income.

I made the east-west superbonuses at the crescent are they any strategic value? Or at least looks good? Im not sure let them or remove.

I do not get what it has to do with 2016, but its a nice map. Its definitely worth playing.

  • Nice and unique visuals
  • Standard bonuses
  • Super-bonuses are not over-valued
  • although II Tier Superbonuses "Szekelyföld bonuses" the two half map sized Bonuses I do not like. Because they are half the map size. Secondly on 1v1 game I guess it never comes to point when this is required to decide winner, hardly captured. Somehow I do not see meaning behind it, unless they offer good Custom Distribution settings. They sure add nice visuals.

Nice map.
I'm guessing the moons are a national symbol? The only thing about the moons is that they are kind of skinny, so some of the bonuses are hard to read. Maybe make them bigger, or just fatter, or use another national symbol?

The bonuses and superbonuses are nice. Some people over-do the bonuses when they have supers, but this looks good. I appreciate the super bonuses having their own place in the top-left. It makes it easy to find all of them. Nobody likes a surprise bonus that was hard to see.

The only other critique that I can think of that might be helpful is that the actual map is somewhat small compared to the amount of screen that is used. I know we can zoom. I don't know how hard it is to change. If the actual map part could be bigger, that may be nice, but it's not a big deal. ...just trying to think of helpful points.

The two half-map bonuses may make great team starting positions - like give one team all the territories in one half, the other team all the territories in the other, and let them beat it out. Don't be afraid to provide some creative distribution scenarios.

Very nice overall. I see there is no "map page" link so it must not be ready yet. I'm looking forward to playing it!

Now I rather think that half-superbonuses will be removed. The two half are too unbalanced for 1v1 scenarios and in free for all who get the half of the map is already a winner without that 2. tier superbonus.

The sun and moon are székely national symbols. Maybe the moons can be bigger like the half-superbonus-moons that is visible better? Maybe enough if the moons become just a bit fatter.

About the view, the map expand to screen 90% vertical and 70% horizontal (with level 1 zoom 100% 80%) and the top left area at the sun also active to play so the screen about 2\3 for play and 1\3 for the textual and visual info. I could make a view with a bit bigger and center oriented map but then all text and picture should be redraw and resize...

Yeah, I think the main thing is the skinny moons. Whatever you could do there would be great.

Great looking map. No need for big changes now.

The half-megabonuses has been removed. The moon-bonuslinks became a bit fatter. Yet finalize the bonus-color-palette and then send it to public.
