My map - INSS Africa (https://www.warlight.net/Map/15987-Issanders-New-Strategic-System-Africa) went public recently. It was generally well received, although I've noticed that few players had problems with understunding it (although I've tried making it as clear as possible).

I'm not an active player for a long time. But recently I played few games and Timinator reminded me that I've almost finished that map before becoming inactive, so I've decided to finish it. And since it was so well received, I've decided to make a few more.

So this is a thread for comments, ideas and updates about INSS.

As for the my future plans, currently I'm on holiday, but soon I will get on to making second INSS map, Europe. You can see the progress here https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=59395

Another maps I have in mind are the Americas, Asia and Westeros. Those lands are well suited to be adapted into INSS maps.

INSS is of course free to use in your own maps, and is free to expand and build upon. I only ask others not to do those five maps that I've mentioned planning to do.

There will be more and different terrains. Europe will have two different kinds of mountains: mediterranean mountains and cold mountains. Asia and Americas will have another kind of extremely hard terrain, high mountains. There will be tundra in all maps other than Africa. Americas will also have plateau terrain (central Mexico and Peru), which is going to be a mix between highlands and mountains.

I like this idea, the map could be more 'color-blind friendly' though:P

Are you going to change how bonuses work? In the Africa map you made it so all bonuses have either 2 or 4 territories, the italian mainland bonus has a lot more currently though

No, all bonuses will have 4 territories, there is one bonus with no name yet, Mediterranean Islands consisting of Baleares, Corsica, Sardinia and Sicyly. The other bonus is penninsular Italy, and they both have 4 territories.

Nice.

the idea of basing a map off terrain and not political borders is fun.

Perhaps limiting movement by adding major rivers could add a lot to gameplay.

One thing is a bit irritating - even after multiple games on Africa map I get confused by the same type of bonus next to each other (especially Eastern/East Highlands).

I see major problem here (on African map) - looking for Settings -> Search bonuses and territories, gives wrong impression about how many are bonuses worth in the game as total (I usually check that against FFA games), so it would be OK if total possible points are written somewhere.
Otherwise, it looks OK, though bonuses are not really encouraging part of the maps (save if there are no reinforcement cards).

They are. Just look at the map.

@Issander, I really like your Africa map! It's really nice and makes for quite interesting gameplay. I wrote some comments in my review of the map, and I'll add them here as well:

Forests and Mountains are a bit too close in color - it can be a little confusing which is which.

I also think you should have bonus boxes which are clickable for each full bonus so you can click on them and see clearly which territories are in each bonus. I understand why you did it the way you did, because it might make the table in the bottom left confusing, but I think it would really help.

Also, the lakes are exactly the same colour as the Aqua player colour. That is confusing.

I've came back from holiday and added 7 new bonuses to Europe map. You can see now that it is going to be bigger than Africa, as it is not yet even half-filled and contains 20 bonuses (compared to Africa's 30 in total).
