I'm not saying the map shouldn't be made, but you'll face lots of obstacles on a map like this... the Foundry isn't very receptive to abstract/non-geographical map ideas, so you will need to do a lot of convincing to get this through.


I disagree. We've already got a couple of pirate maps, and in any case beef diagrams are one of those abstract images that are so recognizable that I think people are likely to go along with it. Yes, it might be a novelty, but I don't think that makes it not worth making.



I agree with this.. At first people said Feudal or Doodle Earth would never work.. we all see how that went. 2 of the most popular maps on CC. Not saying Beef Cuts will be, but I will surely be playing this map. "Please take Top Sirloin" LOL

I think there should be a PETA or some other animal rights group territory that can bombard all territories on the cow.

I kind of foresaw that. But he's logged in today and is taking his turn on games. I hope he does return because he's got some interesting ideas.

I wonder if permission is even needed, something similar could be made in a separate thread.

You can't copyright an idea. Anyone is free to make a map of the same subject. Otherwise we wouldn't have umpty-zillion maps of europe and north-america... ;)

Wouldn't it be the local steak-eating champ who could bombard the whole cow? And then the PETA protester could attack him! Haha.

Not permission. Blessings, maybe? It'd be a bother if he came back after a while and got upset because someone took his map idea.

Perhaps it would be best to enquire whether he intends to resume working on this project, before we start looking for a substitute for finishing his job...

Hey guys, I'm sorry for disappearing. For some reason whenever I checked my posts, it always said this one had no new replies, so I never bothered looking at it.
Anyway, at first I got the impression that no one was too interested in this, but I guess I was wrong. I'll definitely keep working on it.

Right now, the territories are just kind of randomly placed in the regions, so I'll try to place those out more strategically. If anyone has any suggestions or advice, please let me know.

Unfortunately, my computer is getting repairs right now, and I'm forced to use my old laptop that doesn't have photoshop or anything on it. So it might be a week or so before I can do any work on the map, sorry.

EDIT: Nevermind, I do have photoshop

As far as territorial arrangements: In general, it's good practice to avoid 4-way corners like you have in Thick Flank, Flank, Silver Side, Sirloin, and Thick Rib.

I think this map could easily survive on standard gameplay. Simple and fun.

though something like lots of small bonuses could help.

just saying... if I drew this out as circles and posts... people would look at it and say.. "what else you got"

the guy puts a cow around VERY VERY Very simple regions.. with no borders... and ppl are like "Erg cow, I like"

if I did this same map with a celery stalk in the background... I would make it about 5 replys on this thread.

Jsut my opinion.
