This is in its early stages. I still plan to straighten out some of the territory lines and make the yellow linking lines a little more attractive. But, I thought I would ask for your feed back while it's still early on. Have any suggestion? Would you be interested in testing it?

Thanks! :)

Maybe for the longer arms like centaurus you could have an 'east centaurus' and 'west centaurus' to make it easier to get a bonus. Then you could have 'Centaurus Arm' as a big bonus for getting them both?

I think that 19 territories seems a bit much for one bonus, but other people may have different opinions on it. :)

the bonus values are small compared to size of territories in bonus plus the bonuses will take too long to get.

Overall, this has the potential to be a nice small map. The biggest issue I have is with the bonus values. Keep up the good work creating, and see details below:

Connections:
C13-N05 Missing Connection line
C10-S11 Missing Connection Line
C11-S11 Missing Connection

Bonuses:
As it is now, there are only two bonuses achievable, the 1's, but they are unbalanced.
Norma has 5 territories and 4 outside connections.
Orion has 4 territories and 2 outside connections.

So, whoever has Orion is going to win as it takes very few territories to get, and is twice as defendable as the only other achievable bonus. Ideally, a map will have more of a challenge to it than getting the one sweet bonus.

The other three large bonuses might be good as mega-bonuses, but they need to be split up into managable sub-bonuses. Try to group them in bonuses of 4-6 territories, and try to have an outside connection to most of them (meaning to more than just the next contiguous bonus in the arm.

I'm available for multi-day tests if you want.

Shouldn't the Norma bonus be Norma Arm?

Thank you so much for your responses!
I will definitely switch the bonuses around, fix links and change those names! You guys are awesome.
