Re: WWI - Gallipoli V12(p6) - Slightly easier map

Postby captainwalrus on Wed Jun 24, 2009 1:43 pm

The labeled landing beaches are kinda odd. Why do some people have to land in a territory that has -1 killer reducers but some there are normal territories.
What is a convoy landing ship, it says not L# or MS#?

Impassables are good ;)
The map now is no more an happy place to land.

All territories with numbers are starting positions?
I think that start in F3 or F7 could be give a little advantage, battleship aren't abel to bambard these territories.
Saying that , i'm with oak about this:
oaktown wrote:reducing the number of land territories that can be hit by the battleships, since you don't want the end of the game to be drawn out forever because the leader keeps getting one territory after another picked off from a ship.


I also think you have to leave the road as it is now (no one way)...i like the idea to have a quick way to move troops

As other pointed out, you have to update the legend ;)

So, i'll get around to answering those commentors above, but this map will now become an objective map....the objective will be to hold all land territories for one round.

Only from Jim.

Cairns, don't you think that objective won't really come into play until after the game is really, really decided?

Perhaps, yes that is true, but remember this is a way around not having the xml ability at present to prevent the map from going into development vacation. It does give players something to aim for.

If you have more expanded thoughts on this, i be pleased to hear them. :)

Postby the.killing.44 on Wed Jul 08, 2009 9:08 pm

Hmm, well of course it does give people to aim for, the thing is I believe that the only two times it will be even thought of as an option are: when one's opponent only has battleships remaining, and someone wants an easy win (like the castles on Feudal … in fact this is what I'd really compare it to); secondly when someone is in a casual freestyle someone wishes to double turn (in this case like the City Mogul objective). I guess it isn't that bad to have the option, as long as there is the ability to eliminate the opponent(s), but I just don't see it being executed.

On another note, I'm just going to go down the legend:
BATTLESHIPS
show: current

I suggest:
Battleships
- lose two
troops per round
- can
bombard
any position
marked by: Ø

Changes * to -, puts the first two lines into one and the last line with "can" and the symbol immediately following a colon.

LANDING BEACHES
show: current

I suggest:
Landing Beaches
(A,B,C,S,V,W,X,Y,Z
& others marked by yellow
*)
- lose 1 troop
per round

- can bombard
respectively named
landing craft

* you should make "yellow" have the same effect on it as the title/territories themselves
Changes list to alphabetical, gets rid of spaces in between letters, adds parentheses, * to -, condenses first two lines, adds "named" to craft note.

FORTS
show: current

I suggest:
Forts: normal
land attack
and can bombard
sea terts
in
the Dardanelles
and the Narrows*

*have to specify what the Narrows are?
Changes "sea bombard". also note I'm not sure what we can or cannot use as the word for terts

SEAMINES
show: current

I suggest:
Seamines:
turn neutral
per turn


CROSSING PTS are good

~ for those above I think you need some way to separate the blocks of text, whether by a line or just extra spacing ~

All land territories for each position held (per turn autodeploy)

Not quite sure what each position is in the first place, and where is the auto-deploy put?

All convoy landing ships (not L#
or MS#) for each ship held (per
turn autodeploy)

Once again, where is the auto-deploy placed? If it's on each individual convoy landing ship, I'd think:
Auto-deploy on each convoy landing ship
(ships not shown as L# or MS#) per each ship held


Another graphical note, maybe you could give the impassables some depth?

Looks sweet,

.44. you are not spaming. there is nothing to be sorry for. I didn't quite understand what the "only for Jim" comment was about, so let's move on from this eh?...
you have provided excellent feedback above and i am in the process of respsonding to that with the next version of the map. :)

EDIT: with such a comment drought on at the present that i have never seen the likes of, i am appreciative of any positive/questioning comments such as yours.

I don't think there is the ability to eliminate the opponents with this objective option. So in that respect it could turn out like another SchloSS. Heaven forbid, Mergatroid!

All of this is attended to, I beleive, although in some places because of space, i have shortened your suggestions.

Yes, the impassables are impassable for my creativity at present. :( But they'll get there.

Version 13.
1. the sandy coloured continent outline changed to blue outline so as to not clash with the sand colour for the beaches.
2. implementation of almost all of .44's suggestions for the legend.
3. added the Narrows text where needed
4. added objective statement
5. adjusted some mine-sweepers

Battleships, I believe. Though cairns should clarify.

I'm not so sure about the squiggly lines, though they are better than nothing ;)

What does the white line going through the center do? I'll wait for the next graphical update to really tear at it :P
