Revised Alternative Map - 2019 - 3/14/2019 1:10:45 PM

No discredit to GJK's great work on the alternate map presentation but I have noticed a handful of minor errors resulting from terrain 'splashovers' in the original map.

The changes are hardly significant in game terms but I noticed that stacking limits didn't always conform to the terrain shown on the map, There's about 6 hexes which I've clarified in Europe (5 in the East) and a fair number in Syria / Iraq.

In Europe most were Marsh hexes which were shown as forest (mainly in East Prussia) and so stacking is reduced by 1 point compared to Forest. There was one Mountain hex on the Romania / Hungary border which appeared as Forest instead which I've corrected.

In the Desert areas, several more fertile hexes are actually Clear, with resultantly increased stacking limits, so these are now shown as Clear.

Does anyone know of any others? I think I've checked them all.

Also, I was annoyed by what I described as the 'mirror like object' covering North Africa (an unplayable area), and so I have covered that with the GoA Loading Screen on both the combat map and the minimap.

I'm not sure how to make these files available for anyone who's interested?

Again, it was NOT GJK's fault. Terrain splashovers caused it.

The 'mirror object' at least gives a useful space, perhaps for a map legend (Terrain Effects), or any other chart (hex stacking chart), manual data etc., which might be useful as a reminder when playing.

Same problem with map mods for other Frank Hunter games, 'Campaigns the Danube' and 'Piercing Fortress Europa', not the fault of the modders, who have faithfully reproduced the game map data, but containing errors carried over from the original mapping.

Here's an screen example with the 'Stacking Limits' chart as an aide memoire, but you could use the space for anything useful.

Good idea, Rasputista.

Here's mine for what it's worth.
