I think there should be other methods to bombard/attack the commander (ex.include an objective)

There are 14 territories that can attack the commander so I think that is enough.

I think the bonus for the commander should be a little less though, perhaps +4, and it should be aoutodeploy. This makes it slightly less valuable, but still key. Also, the bonus should be auto-deploy, it just seems to make more scence.

Like that the P.A.F is the only way to attack other commanders. IT makes it so people are forced to try and take the treacherous trip into Poland and risk losing a lot.

Just PC03, do you think it is too unclear?

As has already been discussed, it needs to be appealing to make the advance into Poland, if planes could bombard/attack Polish Commanders than i doubt anyone would ever get into Poland

RE: German Flag Concerns

I have looked around and the Nazi Swastika is the National Flag of Germany during this attack, since we can't use the swastika, this map will have to be rendered historically inaccurate, but that's life. The following flags are the other options available, I have set up a poll, please vote :)

Also if you are a WWII expert or German expert and you know of a flag i can't find, please let me know ;)

Option A: Imperial German Flag WWI
Image
Option B: German National Flag 1933 - 1935
Image
Option C: National Flag of Germany : The C-Pennant 1946-1949
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Germany_(1946-1949).svg
Option D: German National Flag 1949 - present

I suppose you could use the symbol that the nazi-german troops had on the vehicles.
So, you can be historically accurate ;)

For now your choices to people vote,its a little Insulting,because you use present FlaG of Germany(if im a german these will be very insulting for me now)

We're not in Germany so i doubt it matters ;)

Actually, I think it does matter, because of the global reach of the site.... While I appreciate the historical accuracy of using the swastika, and while I personally don't object to its use in this context, I still think it would be appropriate to use an alternative symbol if possible. I not sure if there is any official CC policy on this [I'll make some enquiries], but the policy of sites such as eBay indicates that a change may be required...

Wikipedia wrote:
Because of its use by Hitler and the Nazis and, in modern times, by neo-Nazis and other hate groups, the swastika is largely associated with Nazism and white supremacy in most of the Western countries. As a result, all of its use, or its use as a Nazi or hate symbol is prohibited in some jurisdictions. Because of the stigma attached to the symbol, many buildings that have contained the symbol as decoration have had the symbol removed. Westerners whose family originates from India, including religions such as Jain, Hindu and other Indian religions, still use the swastika as a religious symbol, with no connection to Nazism, although not without being accused of cultural insensitivity.

The official confirmation...
MrBenn wrote:Further to the swastika debate, I have had confirmation that the symbol should not be used on any CC maps. This represents official CC policy, and is not open to negotiation. Please use the German cross instead.


There were a lot more comments about it but these are the most important, and i completely understand, which is why it will be changed to

You have to clarify more the difference between the P.A.F symbol and the other symbols (maybe colour the symbols differently or something). I also think this map looks dull, it looks like you've left this map in the sun too long and its faded. I think you should brighten it up.

First i must say that im satisfy that you apply mine sugestions abouth Military Symbols,its good and totaly correct.
Only small things-Stars in red army symbol need to be more centralised.

Lets speak abouth gameplay,if i understand correctly first who take P.A.F can bombard all commanders? These can be very advantage for first who take P.A.F,because some players is in big disantvage.
-Fedor Won Bock have best way to P>A>F.
-Edvard Eudz Smigly is in worst situation,and who start in these are,its best to take pistol and commit suicide
-Kovalev is in same situation like Edvard.
-All others is in much better situation.

Now i need to ask,its these you create on purpose,that some player start in hard situation,and some players have great start.
I belive that you need to change things,because now map is unbalanced to much.

Actually qwert, each player has an even chance of getting to the P.A.F ;) Tanks can attack up to 2 regions away, each Commander has access to their own tank which can attack the P.A.F, so everyone has equal access to the P.A.F ;)

It's the same as the Cavalry on 'Waterloo', yes tanks can range their assault up to 2 regions away, so that each commander has equal chance to reach the P.A.F.

Ahoy,

It's good to see that this map is finally coming together well. I'm enjoying the graphics of the map, the border, etc---though the arrows don't quite seem to fit with the map, and the icons stand out a little more than they should perhaps (it looks like they are not a part of the map---when compared to the tank. The icons don't seem integrated, if that makes sense, but rather "on top").

Also, the nonplayable tan area looks slightly strange---it might be the texture coming through more so because of the light color, than in the darker colors on the rest of the map.

The game play is a little above me in this map, lots of things going on that I've never been good at understanding and playing, ;), but I don't have any major gripes.

Good luck!

Re: WWII:Poland [D] -V6- 12/4/09

Postby TaCktiX on Wed Apr 15, 2009 12:18 am

So I'm here on assignment for this map. Read: satisfy me and you'll have a Graphics stamp shortly behind.

Here's my current gripes with the map (version 6 assumed):
- The framing (which is quite nice in concept) doesn't have a frame look to it. It's flat on the map as if it is part of the map, which I doubt you mean to do. Add some variety of subtle shadow or other pop-out effect to separate the game map from its frame.
- Edward Rydz-Smigly's one-way attack to PC03 looks stupid. Majorly so. Was one big attack line used before and it was rejected? If so, I suggest a reversion, as it looks like a marching army of arrows about to take over Poland all by itself, no tanks required.
- Agreed on Andy's note about the icons being "on top". Maybe partially integrate them into the texture on the territories.
- Could the P.A.F. graphic in the legend have the title of the territory as well (put below the graphic)? At first glance I was confused between the P.A.F. and the standard Polish commanders.
- The wording of the bonus for the P.A.F. needs to match the rest of the legend: "+5 bonus if held"
- The introduction to the map in the top right isn't proper English. Instead of a period, a comma would be much better (and decapitalize soon, of course).
- Is PC03 legitimately THAT big, as evidenced by the seemingly nameless green in the bottom left? I would suggest some border fudge to get it over the frame and attached to PC03 on the right.
- In the legend, try to simplify the sprites for the tanks, as the straight downscale makes the treads look really busy, and the gun barrels almost pencil-thin. This is my personal opinion, it's understandable if you don't want to change.
- The bullet-holes look good, but there isn't enough degradation in the legend to make them fit. The slightly destroyed title is a good step forward in that direction, but the rest of it is too perfect. If it helps in the destruction, separate the legend's framing from the map frame (same trick as my first point), and do some color desaturation, crack addition, etc. I understand the need to keep the legend readable, but there's plenty of pristine red to screw up.
- P.A.F. is missing its final period on the map. It's an acronym, so either all periods or no periods, at least in my experience.

That's all my graphics comments for now. I'll take a gameplay look at this next time to help with balancing, but I'm not officially on that duty. ;)

the only barbed wire within poland that i can see is in the south. how does this handicap von bock, who has the only starting tank that can attack 3 polish commanders (all other starting tanks can attack only 1 polish commander)? between gc10 and the paf, u can add either some barbed wire or a non-tank region gc11; an alternative is to change von bock's starting tank into a non-tank region with 1 starting neutral, but to add neither extra barbed wire nor gc11 - this lets von bock keep his positional advantage (especially in spoils games) while not letting him start with a tank.

consider making the non-important regions start with only 1 neutral, otherwise they risk being doomed to stay neutral in every game: sc07 is such a case. up the neutrals on the tanks and paf to 4 and 6 respectively, while reducing to 3 the number of troops on each start position: we want to avoid the possibility of an aggressive player 1, with 15 starting troops and lucky dice, being able to knock out an opposing commander in round 1.

the aircraft can "only bombard tanks". does this mean they cannot conquer tanks (or, indeed, anything at all)?

On the latest version of the map, Edward Rydz-Smigly seems to have lost his commander symbol.
