Ah, for those i like to have tert names to the left of the army numbers or over them or under them, so that numbers don't cut names off and stop them from being read while players are quickly tkaing up games, and belive me, some players don't look well enough at names. I'll follow this through and see of there isn't an alternative there in that position.Dexsting wrote:...For the bowler & streaker, put thier names on the right side so they're not in the way of the Deep-Offside 4 dotted line.
Not sure if there's room, but can we call the two battsman Striking Batsman and Non-striking Batsman instead of 1 and 2 (or S Batsman and NS Batsman)?
I think the S & NS Batsman should start neutral, so someone doesn't end up having a battsman and fielder to start and gets negative right away. And should the Deep Leg forward four also have a 3 neutral?
Done, although some players may want that back again later on.I'm not sure spectator and a six deserves a bonus...that could get out of hand pretty quick and I wouldn't think winning via the stands would be that fun.
DoneMaybe add some more bonuses for "All Spectators", "All Taverns", "Police Room and all Police" and "All Media Center"?
Done, the map wasn't finishedThere's no names for the three public areas on the bottom left.
DoneCould the Striking Batter maybe be able to one-way attack the sixes? That might be too overpowered, but it might work.
The Long-on 4 doesn't have a fielder you need to go through to get it. Maybe the bonus requiring the fielder, battsman, and the four should just require the batsman and the four. Adding the fielder I think would just add confusing as to which fielder, and then the Long-on 4 doesn't need a fielder moved. And since you need to go through a fielder anyways to get to a 4 I think its just extra complication that's unnecessary. Maybe make the battsman and a four bonus worth 2 ('cause they'll likely have at least one fielder, and that way if you have both battsman and a 4, you actually get a bonus of +4). In the same logic, maybe make the batter and a six bonus +3?
I really like the minus for if you have a fielder and a batter; the sides need to choose whether they go the fielding route or the batting route
Small misspell in the legend: "Batsman 1 lilinks with Batsman 2"
DoneCan you make the blue police line from the police room to PC3 more blue or more distictive? Its hard to notice and seems the same colors as the lines in the outfield.
NO. Fixed i hopeDo the fours connect with the stands at all? Its hard to tell. Maybe some of them do and some don't, just be more obvious about it?
Well, lunchtime for me. Hope these comments help I'm excited for this map!

Dexsting wrote:A comment on the Batsman and a four bonus...I agree with you that the batter should go through the fielder to get a four, I'm just saying does the batter also need to -hold- a fielder? I think just holding the four and the batter is necessary. It'll also eliminate confusion because now it could be read that if you have -any- fielder and the four and batter you can get the bonus. And the Long-on Four doesn't have a fielder, but you should still get the bonus for it if you get it. (I also like having one four that you don't have to go through a fielder to get.)

Bruceswar wrote:While I am not the biggest complex map fan I understand they have a place in CC. With that said this one really pushes the limits. That field looks like it could be a mess. People will be looking at this one asking themselves what attacks what! It just looks so crowded. Maybe that is just me.

This is clearly at a stage where it is more than an idea, and belongs in the drafting room, even though I'd much rather you spent your spare time and talent offering support and feedback to others.

Not sure if the idea is original or not, but the holding the "batter" and a "scoring play position" for a bonus and the "batter" and a "Defender" gives a negative is awesome and can transfer to other maps oncea ll the quirks get worked out.
...I'm rooting for this map and hope it scores big!
Generic offense bonuses with offensive plays
Generic offense gets minuses with defenses
defense together can get bonuses (ignore offense, and if the offense tries to break the defense it penalizes them).
Stands, spectators, media, etc for additional bonuses/countries to make the map big enough.

1. Why is it called Silly Mid-On. Is that a place?
2. What does the "Automatically Links to" mean in the right hand legend?
3. Is the Streaker.... Naked in Cricket? Like a crazed fan? or is that a position?
This site and its links to the more advanced parts of cricket is pretty awesome...
I hate my new job's filter, I can't see the maps Oh well. Have to review at home.
As someone had a question about the streaker and making sure they know he's not a special fielder or something from the people who don't know cricket, maybe saying, "Streaker - a nude fan has run onto the field harrassing the bowler and being chased by the police"?
Also, is it police at these games for real, or are they actually security guards?
