Its a definite idea and the topic starter is intending to make the map. Thats OK. The Vegas one was just an idea for someone else, and should have been in the ideas thread.

Asd for the idea, yeh I think it would be good. Shouldn;t be too challenging graphically, and would be a nice fun twist on the game.

I don't think I'd play it a lot, but more than circus and crossword, thats for sure.

The Las Vegas map thread was simply an idea for someone else to create. SS sem0me had no intention of making the map themselves. Whereas wrightfan123 and myself are intending to make the maps, but are just getting a guage of interest first.

But what is the point in putting in say 5 hours work into a map that nobody wants to play? I'm currently working on the Middle East revamp which takes priority over this project anyway. I'll have a good idea of whether to develop this idea further with the poll though, something I couldn't do in the map ideas thread.

qwert- he included an image of the game. Sure its not a map he created himself but it shows the layout of countries, the number and everything else you could want from a preliminary design. In fact that is how we've been able to talk about whether the bonuses would be possible, or if the gameplay would be interesting.

And Keyogi- Just for reference, the foundry members are generally enthusiastic about every map that comes along. Even the really bad ideas seem to get positive pollings on whether they should be created or not. I know that you have the ability to pull this map off and to do it very well but I still think your time would be better invested in a more complicated map, because you are most likely the best image creator this site has seen thus far. So I would say it is up to you whether you believe its worth spending your time on a novelty map that probably won't be played nearly as much as Australia or your revamped Middle East (in the same right you probably won't have to spend as much time on this as Australia either.)

Ok, does anybody want to do the really boring and tedius xml and I'll do the fun part with the graphics? :P

I'll give it a go, but I think it'll be a long-term project that I'll pursue casually and slowly.

Intriguing... I like it.

I'm than up for helping you with the XML if necessary... (if a Java Dev should stoop so low?!?!) Send me a PM if you want me to do it... Reckon I could turn it around in a couple of days tops...

I think your main problem is naming the places?

I'm not a big fan of the idea. But then again, I don't always like maps when they first start out. They have to usually win me over :)

I'll work on an image over the next few days. Once we've got a basic layout where coordinates will be set, I'll get in touch with yeti_c or Bad Speler for the xml. Thanks for the offer too guys. It'd probably take me months to do it. :wink:

Any suggestions on themes or such? We could go the way of the classic blue plastic or in a new direction. Wooden?

I also had an idea as regards to bonuses. If it was deemed necessary, we could have row or column bonuses. An extra incentive to go beyond four in a row?

Oh, and we'll need a new name. Connect 4 isn't going to work for us.

:? wierd.

tbh, keyogi, i think you need to think of something different.

Your graphics skills suit something much more than this, and I think the idea is awful, i would not play it (like crossword)

Over the weekend I'll bring out my new idea of a map i've thought of that should alter tactics slightly, I've had a lot of work on, plus my 30 day free trial of fireworks ran out, so korean war map update should be available over the weekend :D

No worries pal - just give me the word and it's done...

Name - how's about "Conquect 4"?

honestly, i don't see how such a map could ever be a good idea. especially when the map creator has map making talents.

and the only image i saw was a picture of the game (not a map) anyway.

I just thought this could be something completely different to anything currently on the site or in development. I wanted something where you could basically make your own continents. I've got another idea that follows a similar principle but I'm having trouble finding the details I need.

I'll make up an image over the weekend and see where we go from there. I don't mind if this map doesn't make it through the foundry, I just wanted to put up an idea with a twist on gameplay.
