Well I disagree.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Well Reginald, that's okay.

I'm in a better state of mind now. I've gone over a year without a major outburst and yet when I am around you guys (playing these games in particular) all my horrible character flaws come out. I apologize for that. Just trying to figure out what triggers it. I read my last posts and it sounds like two people are talking.

Sometimes I wonder if I've become unable to separate Patrick from PatMan33, which is mildly troubling. Maybe I've passed off my flaws onto this persona instead? But then that is so unfair to you guys to have to experience all my worst aspects. I dunno...

I wish I could afford therapy...

Sorry if I upset any of you or added to your stresses. My job should be to take **** out of the bag, not to put more **** into the bag.

Maybe we need a safe word. Like, when I start going you guys tell me to get ready for Hamburger Time, and maybe it'll snap me out of it.

No, I still have to stop Sam and Tesla's conspiracy against me.

Stay tuned for my next post! It'll be a doozy. :D

Really though my life was more content when PatMan33 was not a part of it. I think I'll go away again once this game is over and just focus on work.

It is funny, I only just realized that lamd phase is over. I really have no ideas or interest in the rounds after. So I guess I won't do much anyway so I shouldn't be a problem here on out.

You'll never stop the Illuminati conspiracy, Pat.

It's okay. I never know what to do after land phase anyway. I probably won't do much more.

Might start a single player game of PCP. I think making a map is what I really want to do.

Speaking of maps, here's what I've been working on. Naturally I used some artistic license, and I removed a lot of the icons and sort of tried to simplify a bit. This is not a replacement game map, at least for the time being. It's pretty likely that I misrepresented/underrepresented a bunch of your guys' stuff, and there's probably a mistake or two mixed in.

No way dude, you're trolling me.

Looks great!

If anything, I'd make the mountain ranges look more impenetrable. The Fractal Range and the north-south one that Jos made look fairly easy to pass through. They were described as being more dense and as a barrier.

They're just as much symbols as the upward arrows in the game map. They don't really represent their true height.

Also picking colours is really hard. :P

A few suggestions:

I agree that the mountains could look a bit more imposing, though I'm not sure we're thinking about this map the same way you are.

I pictured the delta around my river being solid swamp, not just around the banks.

The fire forests around the volcanic area should probably be a color that looks more like they're on fire.

Speaking of which, we really did use a lot of greens, didn't we?
Probably not a Goat, either.

Ok, I'll definitely make the changes to your swamp, and I'll redden up the fire forests a bit more (but I don't want them to look like a field of lava) but unless someone else wants to change the colour palette (which I welcome you to, if you have flash I'll even send you the .fla file) then I probably won't be touching the mountains for the foreseeable. Not because I disagree but because I'm a bit burnt out on map stuff. :P

Those words do not make sense in that order.

How can one tire of making maps? Anyone want a map? I'll make maps, that's why I play this game!!

ALSO, Tesla, you broke the easternmost Titan during your edit. Or Neo broke it and then fixed the map after you posted, Tesla. His post does have an edit. Either way, Titan is broken.

Well I'm pretty sure it wasn't me, I didn't touch that area.

EDIT - Fixed it regardless.

Well, at least it's nothing too major! And we're aware of it.

Didn't we have a color issue in the first game that went unnoticed for about four turns or something? Whatever the case, I remember the result was we had to remake the entire map. :P

So at least it isn't that bad. And Tesla is our hero!

Tesla, that map is awesome! If it comes down to a vote on whether or not to use that moving forward, I am all for it! I think it's much better to have a single person recreate the entire map than leave it as it was with so many different creators. Gives it a much better look and feel overall.
