Even the small map will require scrolling for attacks, and I'd rather see the whole map and have to scroll up for the legend than see the legend long after I've learned the gameplay and bonuses and have to scroll up to see the top of the actual physical game area.

BOB can't make my laptop bigger, otherwise I'd be getting junk emails with titles like "fr33 b0b 4 ur c0mput3r" :lol:

I have a similar sized laptop, and the HUD menu makes it where I rarely have to scroll. I do think sometimes that BOB is a super-hero. He could totally have his own comic book.

After looking at the small i have no real graphics issues. Ill hold off te stamping until oaktown has another say here. Make sure he has no large gameplay complaints that could tamper with graphics.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

Nothing major from me - just a couple of observations:

1 - I agree with comments about the legend being at the top of the map - I think it would be better there.

2 - I like the style of the photograph attached to the document. Will the 'diagonal' text look slightly out of place with the army numbers, which won't be rotated/tilted??

3 - Gameplay looks reasonably sound; you might decided to tweak things around as you see fit, but nothing jumps out and grabs me as being unfairly balanced.

Maybe it's just me, but the legend makes so much more sense this way. Everything is as it should be. I suspect there will be more little tweaks to the gameplay - and this might be one of those maps in which you play it a few times before you realize how you could make it better - but overall I am satisfied.

The one thing that bothers me a bit about the graphics right now is the way the image of the map is skewed on the table - it is off just enough to be obvious, but not enough to look intentional. Either skew it more so it looks like you meant it, or don't skew it at all.

well it's intentional in that Tel did that on purpose, but not intentional in that the person that put it there meant to have his file be straight.

But, as anyone who works in an office knows, paper-clipped stuff doesn't always stay neat.



thanks for the stamp!

I would like to see a candy-coated paperclip, maybe in the pretty red color that shows up in other parts of the map. If it stood out more, it would be obvious why the picture is crooked. Right now, I think "The picture is croooked. Why? Oh, there's a paperclip."

Just a thought,

an interesting thought laci

I'll pass it along to Tel. Though, I'm quite surprised at how much this paperclip looks like a real one.

What you need to know

1. This is an objective map. Four different ones that all include holding the main stash.
2. There are 24 starting territories. Everything starts neutral except the 8 patrol cars, the 4 corner bosses, the 4 runners, the 4 corner junkies, the 4 counters.
That's 4*4 + 8 = 16 + 8 = 24
3. There are 35 other territories that start out as neutral
4. Number of neutrals on those territories has yet to be determined. Proposed 2 on all with the exceptions of 4 on objective territories and 6 on Main Stash


Just done:

1. paperclip colour made red so it's more prominent.
2. stroke around boss and muscle changed. I think they're quite readable now.
3. large and small version

To do:

1. graphics stamp

Points of Discussion:

1. I guess Lanyards is out for a while so I need someone to do XML centering and to check my XML which I've already written. I think some gameplay changes have happened since then so those need fixing.

http://www.sendspace.com/file/9axsch

If you want to do the centering, that's the link above. Make a post so multiple people aren't working on it.

I'd stamp it, except for the "can attak." Suggest you fix the glaring typo right there. Otherwise, I think it looks great.

"Stick-Up man"? Is there not a more "gangster" name for this...

It just strikes me as being a touch not quite right!!

Otherwise spot on...
