I think:
The light green 5 in the middle should be worth 3/4.
The yellow 8 should be worth 5/6.
The orange 6 should be worth 5
and the blue 4 on the far right should be a 2/3.

Looks fun :) Nicely drawn.

Current bonus values would be okay if you kept territ. count to bonus value ratio mostly consistent throughout the whole map. So, if most of your bonuses have a bit larger value than they include territories, you should raise the value of for ex. Egypt, which is 10 for ~13 territories. Or you should lower most bonus values to keep a ration a bit under 1, like Egypt/Tunisia have.

Although green 5 and navy blue 4 (Israel) are a bit too powerful.

Well, guess why "old" people stopped making maps ;-)

Because some of them (one of them, actually ;) ) raged against memberships, for no reason whatsoever ;)

Wow, what a great answer... in my opinion an answer that is justified, but i didn't expected it from you...
Mostly i had veneration of you - i nerver expected an answer like that from you.
You should (if possible) remember that several people are pissed off that their effort making new maps wasn't honored when the membership was presenteted...

How were they not honored? your maps don't mean anything less than they did before......You're just pissed that you're not getting a membership for free

Not only me.
I talked to two others that randomly entered a game of me which shared my opinion.
Your talking of that maps "don't mean anything less than they did before" is just another evidence of that members think that they are the master race.
There was a suggestion to honor the work that map-makers make which found assurance to fizzer (in words); but nothing happened.
Guess why there are so few maps since the membership was established ;-)

I didn't mean to start yet another flamewar about this.

I don't think I was in any way hurt by the memberships, and I've made a few maps, too. Well, maybe a bit - I miss the graphs, but they don't have anything to do with maps.

I'm not answering to any more of your posts about mapmakers vs memberships. Stop it.

alright, I'll stop too, with this being my final word on the subject: I do not think that I am better for having a membership and neither does any member that I have spoken too. I think that it was worth it to buy the membership to have the perks and to support Fizzer. I would not be against map-makers getting memberships for their work, In fact I put in a positive on another thread about having periodic votes for the best non-member map-maker and the winner getting a membership. I just don't agree with people who complain about it not happening because it's up to Fizzer, not us, so all you're doing is useless babble. Fizzer did not say that he was going to implement such a system, although I do recall him saying he would THINK about it. and there have been plenty of maps since the memberships started by the way. In fact Matma's newest map that I requested was released just yesterday.

I am sorry to the OP for this diversion off topic, and I promise that this is my last post on this thread.

Matma, don't feed the trolls

And the map looks good, not a big fan of super-bonuses, personally, as they have an exploitable tendency, but when I get so I have time again, I will definitely play it.
