personally I like with the A,B,C 1,2,3 cause you can attack empty squares, but if you are going to go with the labeling black peices are lower case while whit's are UPPER. the correct labeling is Queen:Q King:K Rook:R Knight:K Bishop:B Pawn:P


on a new topic: the board is completely messed up. the pawns are on the wrong sides, both kings are in check, and anyone with some knowledge of the game would never leave multiple pieces hanging.

other than that I like the idea, keep up the work.

Lot of space wasted on instructions, make them not as prevalent in the image by sizing down the text & pictures. We are focused on the map after all.

Well, it seems like there's finally some discussion about this map, now that it looks somewhat professional. I took some of your suggestions and redid the graphics, and the latest version of the map is here. Comment and suggest like always. :wink:

Why starting a thread in the foundry? this topic will move there once the moderators think it's time to move there...

as for the map:

I like the idea...

-I don't know if you tryed this but maybe you can make the pieces look some more 3D...maybe that looks good?
-I don't get the '+1 per piece of the same colour...
So if you own 2 pawn's of whit you get +2
Or you get +1 if you own 2 of the same colour?

-For the rest of the map...play a bit around with everything, I'm sure you can do better

My main concern is that the pieces are in an illegal position - both kings are in check - and this is impossible in a game...

Also the black pieces are hard to see on the black squares...

However the board and the rest of the map looks sweet...

Bugger - I didn't look properly - I looked at this thread the other day and they were both in check...

You're right tho - this is sorted now... ignore that point!!

But the black on black problem is still evident.

Question - can black pieces attack other black pieces? Obviously has a major impact on strategy... Love the idea – hope you stick with it.

There seems to be a great deal of support for the idea of a chess map, but this topic has gone inactive twice, even after I took people's suggestions and made updates. This thread is ready for the Foundry in my opinion... it would certainly get more activity there. It would be a shame to see this idea die after 6 updates and support from the community.

Image

Anyway, I made a modification. The Objective feature that I saw in Age Of Might gave me an idea. The objective of this map could be to have every piece of a color, plus the opposing king, similar to a 'checkmate' in real life chess. Also, the name is changed from 'Conquer Club Chess' to simply 'Chess'. This is partly because it gives me more room, and partly because I don't want it confused with Cairns Coral Coast. (One of my favorite maps, by the way.) :)

i remember that old program but i learned with the board game and that has the queen with a crown and the king with a cross (like the pope) so i think this way makes perfect sense

chess is so fun! i had a match up for school where i beat my opponent before everyone else was done so he wanted another game

i proceeded to bash him in 14 more games before other people started finishing lol and i used a different strategy for 10 of them, the last 4 all i did was exchange my pieces for his same ones since i can control my pieces better lol, it kept ending up with my 2 rooks and queen vs his queen and king

lol last time i played chess with people OTHER than someone im related to, i whooped them all, except the first person i played, me and him got a stalemate :?



oh well, i just thought that the king was the queen and the queen was the king cause u cant see the cross on the kings crown

Nope, it's just like a regular chess game. You can only attack pieces of the opposite color.

Also, I know this is a bad setup, but I am saving any serious discussion about it for a further stage of development. Maybe I can provide a legend that shows how the pieces move, who knows? :)

I wouldn't worry about coding if I were you. Besides, do you even know xml? It would just look like this:
Code: Select all
<objective>
   <components>
      <component>Piece1</component>
      <component>Piece2</component>
      ...
      <component>Piece15</component>
   </components>
</objective>

Do that twice and there ya go. Objective complete!
