instead of being in the drafting room subforum of the map foundry, it is in the main page. you'll still be able to reach it from the drafting room via a link if you get too confused finding it in the map foundry

I think he was asking what exactly need to be done to get this map moved into the main foundry.. maybe 8-[

Does anyone know if there are guidelines that need met that get it moved to the different places? Is there a list of them somewhere?

Just saying Cook County is just about as Famous as Chicago itself, and maybe put it in somewhere...maybe set the bonuses by county and include Cook County as the biggest bonus ;)

Prelim review time! Personally I say just move it to the main foundry. Everything is there, the graphics look great, I love the darker, nighttime theme it has. My only crit would be to grab some stock images or something of a street poll, traffic light and sign as they all seem to break from the real images you have going on in the rest of the background.

The gameplay has no major flaws. I like the addition of the airport link, but out of curiosity is there an airport in Midway?

Yep and it's closer to the city-- depends on where you're flying to really.... international then O'hare. If I'm flying Southwest ( dirt cheap flights ) that service to/from Phoenix and LA-- maybe Vegas too; I had to fly out of Midway.

Few changes--

* Fixed the borders that runs along Calumet River.
* Changed bridges.
* Added Helipads to involve L Michigan with the CG Helicopter and add northern/southern access. Before you guys ask me why I didn't choose a ship and use ports. There were a few reasons but the biggest being-- ships are more detailed and with the small area available to work with I couldn't produce a clean image. Besides-- don't think there are helicopters in any previous maps. :D
EDIT: The north pad the H is off centered- will fix. Cbicago is off too.
* Added florescent lighting inside train cars.
* Changed Lake Calumet.


I'm sure one of you will be confused or have concerns about the clarity of the 2 way attacks. I didn't want to add any further explanations. Airport attacks airport and helipads attack helipads-- they can't attack each other. ;)
