If the choice is only between 30 and 120, I'll go for 120. But I'd really prefer something 50-70, if it were possible...

I voted for 120. With a battle as epic as austerlitz, and with the complicated gameplay you look to be using, why mess around with a dinky map?

I'm not sure if 120 is too many... I'd prefer something around the 60-80 mark...

Well it seems that everybody who voted, except me, think it should be a VLM (very large map). If so, it would be a completely different map and I may need time to make a decent proposal for such a monster!

Well your choices were for 30 or 120 territories.... Perhpas if you had a more comprehensive poll, you'd get a better reflection of opinion??

I will follow MrBenn suggestion by adding the 3 villages where they were heavy fighting: Pratzen (centre) Skolnitz and Telnitz (south). So their will be 32 starting position + 2 neutrals.



At Austerlitz the order of battle wasn't constant as you had numerous divisions moving especially on the coalition side as they tried to overwhelm the right flank, and then of course you had Napoleon's charge down the center of the coalition which broke all the ranks, so perhaps if you chose a point in the middle of the battle for example as napoleon is beginning to make his famous charge you could increase the number of territories. Just a thought

It will be only 10% to 20% less not the half of it.

POLL RESULT

How many "territories" in this map ?

3 /16 - Should it stay at the "division" level like it is: about 30 territories
12/16 - Or go down at the "brigade" level: about 120 territories
1 /16 - If you think it should be something else, please make an argued proposition


! This map will be on stand by until I'm able to work on a 120 territories version !

It would appear that development of this map has stalled. If the mapmaker wants to continue with the map, then one of the CAs will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system, after an update has been made. ;-)

After a long pause, I will try again with this map. I reflected a lot about the 120 brigades version, my conclusion is that I don't want to go for a large map like that and a 32 + 2 territories map is a medium reasonable size for CC. So if you guy think it is worth, I'll go on with this starting point and enjoy working on this map again, else I would put a definitive end to it.

The bonuses are wierd. I don't really know where the center lefw wing and right wing is, especialy because the map is more vertical than horizantal. Also, it would be interesting to have some sort of victroy conditions which make Napolean and Alexndre more important. A battle centered around them would be fun. I think that it could be made slightly larger which would make it more interesing but not a full 120 terits. I like it a lot please conuinute it.

I don't know where the Center stops and the left/right wings begin.
