New map- name the territories!: 1/4/2015 11:24:28

So I'm making a new map currently called interplanetary but that is subject to change:
https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=39303

As it says in the title, you can name your own territories- choose a bonus (1-44) and name the bonus as well as all the territories called the same number.
e.g. If I choose 1, I can name all the territories surrounding it as well the actual bonus. However, if I chose 3, I can only name the territories called 3.
Be sensible with the names- I won't accept territories called 'boob' or 'penis'. Likewise, I won't accept territories just being called: superoob, greatoob, fantasticoob or any other name which is just an ajective before your username. These territories are suposedly planets but you can call them anything sensible.

However, I have some other questions as well the most major of which is how the territories are going to connect. The two options I have thought about are connecting to the territories directly connected (too slow) or connecting to all the territories on the same circle (to open). If I choose only directly connected, I can add extra connections.

Another question is the location of the bonuses- currently I have it in the centre of the circle which is ok but hard to see with some bonuses such as 31. However, I am not sure where else to put it.

Finally, if someone could suggest ways to improve the aesthetics, feel free to suggest! The name of the map will go at the top.

Cool map. I like that territories are part of overlapping bonuses but still in a very intuitive way. Really encourages conflict.

For the names, I think the map gives off a scifi/abstract feel. Not necessarily star systems but some kind of cyberverse or something. I like it. I think the names should reflect abstract or scientific concepts a bit. So I'd like to name bonus 23: Prism and name its territories (clockwise, starting at 12 o'clock) Red Shift, Lux, Duality, Gamma Burst, E.

I think for the connections, the only intuitive thing is to connect them if there is a line directly connecting them. That is what you would expect. If you want to make travel across the map faster you could add lines connecting them (but not too much because it would look too crowded). If you want to stick to the circular theme you could do something like this: http://i.imgur.com/F8ChTFQ.png.

I think the locations of the bonuses are perfect.

There are only 5 territories called '3' and I need a bonus name.

Captain Weasle, I like your idea for a large circle to move quicker however, I don't think that is the main problem. As it is, it would take a long time to conquer the larger bonuses and alot of the territories are only connected to 2 others meaning there are alot of chokepoints and moving slowly along the circle edge.

I have found another problem- overlaping bonuses. I think the only good solution is to draw another circle outset around the territory with the coulour of the second or third bonus.

I'll take bonus number 4

And for your bonus issue, the bonuses can overlap, clicking one bonuslink will highlight all the territories, regardless of overlap.

By the way the plural of "phenomenon" is "phenomena", not "phenomenons".

The plural of Octopus is octopods(pronounce Auk-toe-podes)
Pus is a Greek root, the proper conjugation is podes
Edit: And that's Kragle (Which is household glue)
