Great concept map, i like the geometric/abstract style. Few suggestions tho:

It looks like the light doesn't match up with the shadows, brightest side is on the right, and the shadows are to the right as well

I think blue should have 2 territories on the bottom or have a link between one of the higher territories with a neighboring hill, its too easy to hold

Maybe add an extra border to white squares, and make the bonus for white territories 2

You don't see the difference in shape from blue to red, maybe make one an octagon, the other a hexagon, or have the 2 side of the pentagon facing out

I will have an updated Abstract Style Map done sometimes this weekend.

It will be called King of the Mountains.

I have changed the way the Kings work. No longer will you be able to attack from each king to the next. There will be heliports in the white areas that can attack all of the Kings.

Updated Pic coming soon

I would like to see the mountains, but I could then opt for the abstract forms like your last image :)

sully800 is setting up the city map. I am going to help him with the final layout and graphics. So we are working on one it is just different from the Mountain Theme. If everything goes right, you will get your "man made" map.

Here is the latest of the Abstract version of the KING OF THE MOUNTAINS.

Image


The Mountains have been adjusted to the largest one has the most sides and the shapes of the bonus number match the shape of the mountain. I decided that it did not make sense to have the tops attack each other. How would that work. So I added 3 helipads in the White/Gray areas. These are used to attack any other helipad or Mountain top (KING). The header was redone and the shadows and lights were adjusted to the proper angles.

Here is the territory breakdown

Color ___Number_Borders_Bonus
Red_____13_____6______8
Green___9______5______7
Blue_____8______3______5
Purple___5______3______3
Yellow___3______2______2
White(S)_4______2______1
White(T)_3______2______1
White(C)_4______2______1

Well there you go. Any other suggestions. The poll currently shows that most people don't even want this map looking like this. Let me know.

In my opinion, the conic hill shape should be the highest hill, not the lowest.

Why:

- the circle is the upper limit of a regular poligon
"Nature is a temple in which living pillars
Sometimes emit confused words;
Man crosses it through forests of symbols
That observe him with familiar glances."

But it gives less oppertunities for territories on different faces.

THIS IS GREAT! The poll is about 50/50. What do I do AndyDufresne? Should I make both maps and then have people vote when both are done?

I don't want to spend time on something that will eventually be junked.

Tell me what to do.

It's up to you, to decide what you would like. If you want to spend the effort on creating two versions, by all means go ahead.

Just keep it the way it is, either way u'll piss of the same amount of of people, this way you have less work to do!
btw, i still think the triangle hill looks a bit funny, i think the angle facing us is too close to 90 which would imply a square. If you can make it around 60 i think it might look more triangular, then again i've never done any 3D artwork so i'm just shooting in the dark.

i like the way you've changed the blue hill. you might want to bump the white continents bonuses up to 2, they seem too large for a single
