Sorry
couple of questions:
Is there a doorway between Parvis Du Sud and Port Neufue where there should be arrows?
Does H37 attack H25
Does H16 and H17 attack h26
Sorry i'm just a little confused about the attack routes. I Understand them Within the bonus regions, but between the bonus regions i am confused.
If it had attack routes more like Trafalgar it might be less confusing. But with the attack routes it takes away the free feeling of the map.

Don't take offense to this because my map making skills are no where near yours but some things on this map do need work ex.: The water, The lines in the legend between attackers, It might look good if you had texture only on the buildings and not the roofs.

I love the 3-d affect of the buildings, Top Notch. I love the bushes too. The look of the map is great.

Yes, but that wall will go next version so it clearer.

Does H37 attack H25

Yes, and C25

Does H16 and H17 attack h26

Yes, and that will be made clearer

I understand your concern, and hopefully i can graphically grapple with that satisfactorily so the map retains it's free flow.

No offense taken when good suggestions are put forward.
All of those are targeted for work....this is only the first draft.

All Good. Thanks for your comments :)

where you going to do another draft or are you waiting to see what every one thinks.
I hope to see another draft this is a unique idea.

My favorite map ever is Poison Rome and I am getting the impression that the gameplay on this one is similar. I can use my imagination on this map to picture the graphics as they will be and I think it will be very easy on the eyes once finished. Any concerns I have thus far are in reference to gameplay. I personally hope that this map is finished with consideration for not having certain areas that once held give a severe advantage to either player (drop issues). Otherwise I am looking forward to this map as it looks very fun indeed.

Funkyterrance, i wouldn't say the gameplay will be like Poison Rome. I'm hoping this will have its own gameplay.

Also if yuo have concerns about the drop, then please make sure you visit this map while in deveopment to watch what ensues and that you put forward any ideas towards it not having uneven drop. :)
You know you're always welcome.

I will be keeping an eye on this map, you needn't worry about that. ;)

As far as the differences between this and Poison Rome I suppose I would have to play this one to be sure but I definitely see some strong similarities at a glance. For instance, the linear feel and bottlenecking of bonuses. While they are obviously different in that there are less points of attack, different mode of movement between terts and no bombards, I feel that the overall vibe will be similar. To me this is a good thing since it would mean an alternative to my favorite map with a little spice added (looser borders). Again, we shall see once the map is completed and in the meantime agree to disagree. I must say, however, that I have a good deal of experience on Poison Rome. :D
If it is like Poison Rome in the ways I think it will be I will be very pleased.

Re: Massacre à Paris [29.11.12] V4

Version 4. )3 was some experimenting that didn't work out)

I've taken this and put it into Illustrator CS5 (from Fireworks CS3)...i think the difference it s bit finer!
I've changed a few things like the fences and impassables (Impracticable)...but the gameplay is essentially the same...

All looking much better cairns. I do like the yellow / green. :D One thing though, why use pictures of the monarchs? Everything is so nicely drawn, why not draw those as well? It was something I was thinking of asking for the Spanish Armada map but the pictures seem to suit that one. This one for some reason look a little odd. To have these fine detailed pictures over a very nice but obviously drawn image. What are your thoughts on trying to draw them yourself :?:

Lastly, bonuses ;) and please, just to make my life easier, can you please use the big image tags. Trying to see you work through your medals is frustrating. :evil:

Before you ask, I am keeping my eye on this, but you of all people do not need hand holding in this part.

thanks koontz, but long way to go acquire standard....i am not in favour of drawing over faces of important people as these provide historical connections to the past...besides all that area is planned for change.

i'm pleased you didn't...not in favour as stated above.
