Alright, I feel that we've looked this over pretty closely for a long time now. Some suggestions have been implemented, some have been dismissed with logical arguments. Like Wid's puzzle map, this can't go live without necessary changes to the site's XML options, yet I don't want to make it just sit and rot, so I've made a new 'provisional' gameplay stamp.

Now send this over to the graphics department. :)

Cealing cat!!!

Actually,... could the flags work if you painted them onto the bunkers? Also, why do they want this map to wait? No one has a problem with it anymore....

Sooooooo graphically we're good then?

(personally, I think the ceiling cat bonus could be a bit higher because, after all, he is watching all of us masturbate, and I think the relative power of the bonus could reflect that)

just a minor question. I can recognize bunkers, trenches, foxholes, and machine guns but where are the mortars? Are they in the bunkers? Would you give me a map grid for one of them please?

Thanks.

Thanks for the comment, the mortar, along with reinforcements and artillery, are the "orders" terits in the upper right of the map, where the red crosshair is. Orders can be accessed through each side's respective bunkers (i.e. German bunker attacks German mortar)

So... It's possible that games get stuck? If someone has an Artillery region, he can keep bombarding the bunker so that noone can get him out of there... Right?
I'm also curious whether multiplayer games could be as good as 1v1's on this map... But hey, gameplay's passed ;) And the graphics look great! Keep up the good work :)

Artillery can bombard any space except the bunker, so theoretically, you can kill your open everywhere until they have a last hold out in the bunker, in which case you will have to get across no mans land and ferret them out the old fashioned way.

just a quick one ... maybe already mentioned, but it seems by way of the graphics that the machine guns can only be entered from behind, is this correct? i think it would be good if this was so in any case.

it is not the case, they can be 'entered' from behind or on top or even from the side.

Incandenza wrote:XML and related issues
Conditional XML would need to be implemented
Killer neutrals respawning to a different army count would need to be implemented
Territory names in the XML (and drop-downs, obviously) will follow a "Coordinate" "Evocative Description" format, i.e. "A-3 German Front", "B-7 German Bunker", "L-3 Allied Machine Gun", and so forth. Orders territories, having no coordinates, will simply be "Allied/German Mortar/Reinforcements/Artillery", as appropriate.


Any progress on the xml upgrades inc.?
what's "conditional xml"?
the last point on the territory names doesn't seem like a real problem, on account of other maps like waterloo, and upcoming ww2europe?

Conditional xml is basically what would be required to make the trench bonuses work properly.

And as far as xml upgrades, as always we await the kind intervention of the turtle.
