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.

7X6=42, if I'm correct.

Yes, I just fixed that mistake in the first post. When I was originally looking into the idea I saw an image of 7x5.

There's a million rip-offs of Connect 4, but as someone pointed out it's only really a game of Tic-Tac-Toe.
