It is 40 px too tall.
And just because the large works does not mean the small version will not have issues. You have a lot of stuff in there.
I would suggest making the small work before continuing to make sure all of the content will fit.

Image looks great though

I see what I've done wrong. I created the map to the size restrictions but got the two muddled up. I'll get them to the right size once I've found out which option of my poll I should go with.

I second this. In part because I just tabled an idea for a disc golf map because I saw this.

I have been waiting for a decent amount of votes for my poll, it's been neck and neck for ages. Looks like Ill be going with rough patches around the green though. I now have to change the size of the map because I muddled up the size and height restrictions. Will hopefully work on it alot next week, although I still need some ideas on hole names, any ideas? Once I have a theme and some names I'll update the map, put on some army circles, then see where it goes from there.

I guess you did ask for hole names earlier. I haven't really given it any thought. They don't necessarily need names but I see where it might add to the appeal of the map. Conquer CLUB. :lol:

trying to think on the sport because I now feel obligated. mr green should get a hole. no idea why. just sounds right. :mrgreen:

hole 1 could be "classic hole"
hole 7 should reference world war II. like the Omaha beach hole.
hole 5 the 8 thoughts to par hole.

this is hard...

Those are some good ideas actually, think I'll go with those if that's cool? Also, Conquer CLUB is funny and clever, maybe I should incorporate that for the map name. Maybe hole 5 could be "Dust Bowl" because of the sand bunkers. I like the idea of holes named after maps

well glad you like them. I really couldn't think of another angle. I agree, go ahead with naming them after maps. I'll try and give a second look tomorrow when i'm more awake.

I like the idea for the Conquer Clubhouse. It's very creative. I also support naming the wholes after maps. Here are a few suggested names that I just cam up with. They can go towards any hole you see fitting or none at all ('cause some are really bad).

Feudal Freeway (Feudal war)
Solar Slice (solar system)
Pearl Hopper (maybe add a few ponds and water hazards for this one)
Duck and Driver
Soviet Shank
Putter Sound (Puget Sound)

Again, I made all of these up in a few seconds. You don't have to use them if you don't want to, I know they are pretty cheesy.

They're good idea's, I didn't have in mind the idea twisting the names to relate them to golfing subjects. I think I'll have to use some of them

Postby Ethitts on Thu Jun 05, 2008 4:29 am

I've thought of a few ideas for hole names, here's what I have come up with (plus already suggested ideas):

Omaha Beach - more likely to relate to hole 7
Classic - more likely to relate to hole 1
Dust Bowl - more likely to relate to hole 5
Caddie Maximus
Age Of Rounds - more likely to relate to hole 9
Feudal Freeway - more likely to relate to hole 3
Solar Slice
Pearl Hopper
Duck and Driver
Soviet Shank
Putter Sound
Birdie Isles
Divot Earth
Par Habour - more likely to relate to hole 6
Bambogey Jack
Cairns Coral Cart - more likely to relate to hole 8
Texan Tee Wars
Flags Race!

Let me know what you guys think and if you have any other ideas post away!

Hey everyone, I have made an update on the map. Let me know what you think.

1. Changed the size to meet the size restrictions. Current size is: Width: 840px. Height: 800px
2. Added territory names, the names probably need changing and also their colour/position/size.


Not a huge update, but an update nonetheless.

I'm liking it. As a graphics suggestion, I think in general you need to make more use of layer effects. Especially on the text... you need to make it legible, and say "golf" to the players.

Cheers, I'm pretty new at map making so I'm not 100% sure what you mean though.....(In terms of layer effects that is).

looks quite fun, but i don't think i really get it though, i'm not a golf player myself and i don't really know how to gain a bonus on this map #-o

the concept looks pretty fun but i guess i won't be playing this one

I love the concept, and it does look nearly complete! However for myself as a player, The colors are buggin' me. And so is the strategy.

There is too much green. Could you add a garden or something??? (I know there should be a lot of green)

Also, the strategy seems a bit lacking. Maybe you could add a cart path? This could be used exactly like the subways on the NYC map. Allowing you to strike someone farther away across the map. Plus it would help to break up these repetative greens.
If you want things a bit comical, you could add carts along a path. If the carts were territories, but the path wasn't, then you could use the carts to bomb territories along the path. It's easy to do. But!!!!! I do like the set-up that you have now!!! I just like to be all kinds of help.
I can see how you were trying to add strategy by adding the beaches and docks. And I really like that Idea, it's not anything that I would have thought up for sure!

I appreciate your ideas, but some of these points have been covered before. It had been discussed that too many gimmicks can be bad. I would prefer to keep it simple, much like a classic style map, just in a different setting with a couple of gimmicks. The idea of having a path with territories (I know you said only carts as territories, not the path. But it would still be a path but just a path of carts), was shot down early on. As for the too much green comment, I haven't been told that yet, so I do wonder if other people feel the same. But yea, bear in mind it is a golf course..........


To be honest this map kind of died anyway, I'll put up a post to see if the community want me to keep developing it though.

Postby Androidz on Sat Jul 26, 2008 6:13 am

Even if your not sure if you want to keep devolping the map i give you a few ideas:

instead of makeing the fields togheter why not add Caddies or golf cars as a attacking route between them?

Mission based map? Hold all holes to win?

Ok, I'll try doing a poll later. For some reason it keeps adding older poll's to the new one, I kept trying to change it but eventually came out like this:

Should I keep working on this map?
No
No
No
Yes
No
No
No
No

I have no idea why
