Well...

---I'd have to toss my vote out for a flip flop of Haydena's. C--->B--->A.

---I'm curious what if you add a little more military and war theme to the map? Maybe make the football a little bullet riddled and blackened from bombs...or perhaps a bomb near the chemistry facility....and the books? Maybe if possible look for more images to write 'The Art of War' on them, etc. Maybe a few throw pillows....landmines, you know...the works.

I think this map is hovering near the "Clutter Threshold", and adding "the works" would be quite likely to push it over the edge -- especially as one of my original goals was to have a map with a clean, simple visual style, and I'd really prefer not to stray too terribly far from that principle.

I dunno. I'm reading this, and it's making me want to go back and rename the football field to what it was. This isn't really the direction I want to go in here. The concept of the map is that it's supposed to be a normal university. Putting a plane in the parking lot and describing football as a "combat simulation" are just jokes added as an afterthought, not the theme.

What Rock said.

Also no more clutter. Rename the football field if you want but leave the plane.

maybe leave the tank in (it's a nice subtle touch) but get rid of the other ornaments (ball, flasks, books). I think this one is god enough to look at with the decorations that are more part of the map (doors, stairs, fountain, etc.)

Wow. alot has been happening since i last posted.

I still hate the shapes of the sorority and faternity houses.

I also think that the pile of books should be replaced. Looks too clipart.

Anyone else want to add an opinion on the extra art/no extra art question before I make a final executive decision?

like it without the cheesy clip-art much better! I like the lighter tank, too, though... just my vote...
Maybe go back to football field, but put a few craters in it?

The time for minor aesthetic suggestions has finished. Unless any genuinely important issues arise, this is the version I'll be submitting to lack:

The Final Forge period has concluded for the Conquer Club University Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for live play (barring any Lack vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

Postby Telvannia on Sun Jun 25, 2006 3:12 pm

one question after playing this map i was trying to remember where i had seen the latin quote before and after remember i realised it makes no sense:

"it is a wonderful thing"

in my opinion that makes no sense i think if it is possible to change it to fit the whole quote in

"Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori."

which makes a lot more sense

"it is a wonderful thing to die for ones country"

Just a side note...

This map is bloody awesome!!!

Jota you've done it again! Everyone of your maps is simply unbelievable. I like the USApocalypse map also, had a good game on there, I don't know what it is, but I think the CCU is my favourite map about now!

I think the idea of the quad...because you can get to anyone nearly from it....unless someone controls it.
