Thanks Dim, and thanks for the support of some of the ideas you put into this map. :)

I see there is something amiss with the Non Pladuck POW Camp title in the version above...it will be fixed in the next update. :)

Plan for forward movement from here

While i have been posting the large version with the small recently, this is simply an up-size.

I would like the Large version to have my standard 24px wide huts on this one, so it will need to be created after all the graphic updates have been completed.

XML will be started, and finished when both versions are graphically complete.

Please post all your graphic updates for the momement as soon as possible so we can move on.

I don't know but personally this map still looks like a first draft :?
(only joking :wink: )

No I really like this map now :!:

Is there a possibility that you can get your legend text out of the playable area? I mean the 'POW Camp Sections border each other' I hope you can find a way to get it out of the land

and I like the way how you explain the word 'four'.
When you read that text and you don't understand 'four' I guess they won't understand the rest of the text eader :)

Some little things: in the south-east on the brown area the text isn't really readable because of the black road...I don't mind since it's only one letter that is hidden in the dark but maybe some1 will complain later...

thanks that looks much better

I agree with the comment four (4) is overkill either go alpha or numeric not both.
Don't now why people on here don't like being cooks, remember under siege: A former SEAL, now cook, is the only person who can stop a gang of terrorists when they sieze control of a US Navy battleship.

The Final Forge period has concluded for the Thai POW Railway 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!
