Marshall Islands... or Bikini Atoll Nuclear Testing map idea

Postby AndyDufresne on Thu May 24, 2012 3:14 pm

Two possible ideas:

A straightforward map of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean (they cluster together nicely, and some are well known):

Or...

Maybe something just focusing on the Bikini Atoll, where atmospheric nuclear bomb tests were conducted...and Nuclear Testing could be incorporated into the theme and gameplay.

Re:Bikini Atoll: I'd looked at this ages ago, and the only thing I could think of was a changing maps idea in which the center starts off regular and then becomes negative bonus, then killer neutral. Scramble to the edges and then survival of the fittest. Very historically inaccurate... unless you're a fish. Hopefully that idea could become possible in the near future. Still waiting to see the big jack-in-the-box...

Bikini Atoll sounds more interesting from a gameplay point of view than Marshall Islands. MI would just be very similar to the Galapagos Islands map in terms of layout, while BA could be more innovative.
