Version 6

Not much in the way of graphics delt with this time. But some minor changes.

Game play changes.
All planes can shoot down the enemy's planes. This deals with the stalemate problem.
Submarines can not longer attack up to 3 territs away as this negates the ship to ship bombardments. But they are now unable to be attacked from the planes.

Discuss.
Bonus values. Currently there are 15 bonuses on the board. Too many or not enough. What about the values.
Navel forces.
The subs, can they attack further than one?
Can they be attacked by planes?
Bombardment ranges for ships, remove, make longer?
Should ships be able to bombard the coastal areas?
The two British Aircraft carriers. Make these LZ's. This would give the British 4, instead of the 2. But then they start as 3 neutral.
Airforce scale. I added another bonus into the neutrals. Does this give to much power to the airforce (this is consistent with how the airforce works nowadays).
Nuetral vaules for the LZ's and planes are 3/2. Is this to low or to high.
I was thinking of,
aircraft 1 & 2 (stay at 2)
aircraft 3 & 4 (go to a 3 neutral)
aircraft 5 & 6 (go to a 4 neutral)

Graphicaly, leave any changes you want to see made.

ok a couple of quick notes.
the colours are too similar i think. also the annotation is a bit confusing but once the areas are more distinguishable then it won't matter really.
also a correction on legend. Hold aircraft 3 - bombard enemy naval forces

Well, I am a lurker too, but if you want comments, here they are: I like this map, and I think it would be very nice that this particular conflict was available for playing on the site. As an Argentinian, I know I would play it for fun, anyway.

About the Belgrano, well, it was an important element in the war, and it should be included along with subs, in my opinion. It could present some kind of strategic advantage when conquered, I think, so it would in some way parallel what happened in reality. But I haven't any specific suggestions about it.

Anyway, I just dropped to say that, yes, I would really like to have a Falklands/Malvinas map to play in CC.

Cheers!

Yes, a truly sad loss which accounted for almost half the losses of life in the war itself.

Falklands/Malvinas, am going to put the Malvinas onto of the 1982 but have been looking for what the Argentinian called the war. Expect me to PM you and will get the Belgrano in. Might give it a seperate bonus if held with the British sub. Will remove ARA Hercules for the Belgrano.

On its own, no bonus.
With Argentinian - fleet bonus
With British sub - minus 3

Will do the same for the British fleet.

Colour changes.
Bonus values.
Any more bonuses needed? or taken away?
Would like for the ships to bombard the land territs. Too much or if can do, how far into the land to have it.
Neutral values.

If you want to be notified when a new draft comes along. Let me know and I will PM you.

Spelling correction:
- NavAl instead of navEl (unless you want a fleet that is having its crewmembers stare at their belly-buttons all the time, or has an unnatural obsession with citrus fruit)

On another tangent, the mountains look EXTREMELY plain, the woods look a little bit too speckled, like someone spilled a cut-up chia pet on your map, and the overall land texture looks like you took a bas relief or generic bump and applied it to the entire land area. I realize they're all graphical complaints, but hey. ;)

All points noted. Not to worried about the mountains yet as they are going to be like the trees from RD map. Always changing them, never satisfying everyone. What the hell is chia pet? and how did they get into my forests. The texture was less noticeable with the old colours, now they have been changed, it will need to be looked at. Spelling will correct next version. No comments on the gameplay section apart from spelling. :-s

I like this and look forward to playing it....



Interesting fact....did you know that HMS Sheffield and ARA Hercules were sisters and were built along side each other.

The map is actually very clear, and clarity/consistency are my specialty. MarshalNey is the guy who breaks down your bonuses and makes you weep for mercy. ;)

It's why Marshal and I are such good friends :mrgreen:

I'll have a look at this soon, too. Got a lot going on at the moment!

Never knew that, I will put the two sister ships next to each other. :)

If you think I will weep and beg for mercy, never, do your worst.

But I will tell my mummy that the mean boys are picking on me. :P

Changed the spelling.
Moved the two sister ships together. Thanks Gypsys Kiss
Changed the mountain. Looks pretty good now.
Changed the trees. Again, I like the look now.
Legend work.

Ideas on texture for the land now as that is the next big thing to work on. Not getting the results I want so any ideas on how it should look?
