Re: AUSTERLITZ v02 11mar2009

Might I re-suggest adding artillery? say 8 artillery territs (5 Allies, 3 French)? As well as increasing the territs they would also provide the possibility of mid-to-long-range bombardment, restricted by position (left, centre, right) maybe?

If 8 is thought too many then maybe 5? (split 3,2)

Also, it would be interesting to have some sort of victory conditions which make Napoleon and Alexander more important.A battle centred around them would be fun....

I added the two following points to the to do list
    - creating some victory conditions (some suggestions?)
    - making graphically the wings more obvious

No I don't want it to be as complex as Waterloo beside cavalry is already some long range effect with such a condensed map. You can jump very quickly from one end of the map to the other.

I still feel a few more territs would not go amiss - another 4 would give 7-players 5 territs, and 6-players 6 territs.
I'd suggest another 3 villages (Augzed, Hostieradek, and Holubitz) plus the Austrian Commander, FML Prince Liechtenstein (no separate bonus but perhaps +1 for all 3 Commanders)

I also think it might be helpful if, rather than talking of left and right wings, the terms north flank and south flank were used.

Victory conditions
  • French victory - hold Napoleon + French centre + Allied centre (16 territs)
  • Allied victory - hold Alexandre + Liechtenstein + Allied centre and south + French south + Pratzen (16 territs)

Keeping to Division level I don't see how we get much beyond 30 inf.+cav. territs. The leitmotif for this map appears to be "simplicity" and the current 29+2+3 territs supports that, though I think my suggestion for 29+3+6 territs also keeps the simplicitly while improving game play.

Speaking for myself I like this map and would like to see a series of such "simple" Napoleonic battle maps including one for Waterloo. :shock:

Mine apology, i read some conversation abouth adding more territory(and these is possible),
but if you got something against mine simple sugestion, then i will remove from these topic permanently.
Sorry for all problems what im create.
If you want i can erase these previous post with proposed territory,to people dont be confused with these idea.

This is an important historical map and should be in the cc collection. Good luck.

Qwert, sorry for going mad about this but I left this project like 6 month because of the size discussion. I decided to start it again being convinced about my first intuition about size. I like the condensed effect of the map, I don't want it being a big apocalyptic mess. So I do not want to move from this size around 30 territs. But if you have some comments about any other topic you are warmly welcome.

ben79 wrote:continue la ta map .. j'aime bien le concept et tu devrais dire dans ta mini-histoire que le move que Napoleon a fait à cette bataille était du jamais vu en cette époque et lui a valu l'admiration de tous !!! ben

Of course I can tell a lot about the battle but it's not an history lesson only a game. If anyone think I should tell more about the tactics employed by Napoleon I will add some more text.

After good reflection 32 is an optimal number
    2 players = 16 territorries (+5 bonus armies) 2 conquest needed to loose or gain a bonus army
    3 players = 10 territories (+3 bonus armies) 2 conquest needed to gain a bonus army
      33 would be 11 each and so 1 conquest to gain a bonus army
    4 players = 8 territories
    5 players = 6 territories
    6 players = 5 territories
    7 & 8 players = 4 territories

33 territories is already a problem with 3 players,
and 36 would be a problem with 2 and 3 players as they would be at the +4/+6 bonus limit and the starting player can immediately break those bonus.
Beside the 3 villages you wanted to add where not major points of the battle.

Adding Liechtenstein, why not as he would start neutral but I'm missing a bit space at the centre and wasn't he all the battle with Alexander commanding staff?

Sure I'll change it and it will be easier to find on the map.

What about a more simple: Hold the central battlefield for victory (Pratzen, French and Allied centre and the 3 commanders)

We'll just have to disagree about the number of territs - it's your map aand I'll respect your considered decision.

I was under the impression that Liechenstein was with his cavalry command on the North flank, but I could be mistaken.

As for the victory conditions I was trying to reflect the differing strategies, but your "hold the centre" option sums up the battle just as well.

Attack Lines
Do the attack lines run through un-named villages and Austerlitz, and/or cross other roads? For example can Dokhturov attack Alexander? or can Voropaitzki attack Telnitz?

Battlefield Divisions
I still think north/south flanks are less confusing than allied/french-right/left flanks. I'm also not entirely convinced that the division-braces are the best visual device. Perhaps use 2 shades of blue, green and red to differentiate the centre from the flanks? or use a background colour to the text for names of the central territs?

yes they do but i'll remove the part behind Voropatzki-Engelhardt until the white road so the back attack line would only be:
    Voropatzki-Engelhardt
    Alexandre-Dokturov
    Margaron-Oudinot-Napoléon-Drouet-Suchet

I'll work on some visual differentiation for the flanks

Nice work pamoa ;-)

Consider adding some colour to the legend (ie red/green/blue) to distinguish the different armies.
