Why Hundred? To Colonial, or not to Colonial?

Posts applicable to the variant selection process circa 2015 and before. Will also contain subforums where approved & elected variants are "workshopped" for specific tweaks during implementation.

Work on Colonial, now that Hundred is done?

Im thinking that is because its coming out square instead of rectangular...and easily is fixed by changing dimensions.

I stretched the vertical a little since the width of maps for the site (900px) was the limiting factor. I made it a 900x900 square.

Considering that the map has 60% more spaces and will have 70% more units on it, I thought it wise to increase the average area per province rather than preserve the proportions of the Avalon Hill map.

Thanks, sinny! I'm probably going to leave the Colonial draft alone for a while until I can get the other two candidates into a similar shape.
