Sweet, really a map to brighten up your day. Also love the originality and very sleek design.

One question though:
What is it that resets to neutral? And what then gets the autodeploy?
You surely need to write that a bit clearer.

By the way, guys, tell me if any of these backgrounds strike you as improvements over the white.

Oh, and of course the poll wouldn't be complete without the combo option:

I'm uncertain about how the records would start out -- neutral, starting positions, or what not -- but there's plenty of time to figure that out.


The other options I'd include in the poll are (and I can pretty the older ones up a bit if necessary):
--] Six players only: http://www.freewebs.com/dimagic/ConquerClub/Woodboro_6.png
--] Eight, option 1: http://www.freewebs.com/dimagic/ConquerClub/Woodboro_8b.png
--] Eight, option 2: http://www.freewebs.com/dimagic/ConquerClub/Woodboro_7a.png
--] Another scheme (specify in post)
--] Multiple versions (specify in post)

Any comments before I put this up?

Yes, now it's clear.

As background, why don't you try (orangy) yellow on top and then to the green below? Kind of makes you think of the sun rising at morning.

I'm liking the progress evil - I reckon you can safely go for the poll - making sure the options are in post 1 for folks to easy find them.

6-player option would prob not be allowed of course but definitely worth having as an option just to show what people think - maybe worth having as a seperate question though (as these folks would no doubt go for one of the allowed options too)?

That's pretty much what I went for with 8a's background. I tried a more pronounced yellow but it was far too dominant for my taste.

Anyway, poll's up! Democracy for everyone!

The closest rule to that seems to be

A 6-player-limit map supports 70% of possible game settings; and there are enough extant maps with this limit that it wouldn't be unusual if a new one came out. I suppose this rule is up to interpretation. Any foundry sages care to opine?

Just wondering what an 'extant map' is?

Those that have been published already. Referring to Feudal War, Age of Realms, et al. I'm not sure how many there are -- are there any that were made after the 7 and 8-player options were added?

I definitely thought that you weren't allowed to make new maps only for six players, and I think that if you do allow this one through, you will end up setting a bad precedent. That being said, I think the idea of the pirate stations is brilliant.

Would I? I figure if a six player limit is permissible for me it's permissible for anyone. In that case what would be so bad about a bunch of 6-player maps being released? Or specifically 3- or 4-player maps, for that matter?

Well, personally, I just like 8 player maps, but there have been other maps that have only allowed for less than 8 players and the mapmakers have been told by the foundry staff that all maps need to be playable on all settings. The only reason there are some 6 player only maps is that the most amount of players per game used to be 6. Since they have not let other people make less than 8 player maps, they most likely won't let you.

I still think we should be allowed to make 2 player only maps, but I guess that is far beyond the scope of this discussion.

I believe all new maps are supposed to accommodate 8 players, but I personally don't think they should have to.
