Interesting - I am already thinking of tournament ideas for the 4 map series.

I like it, and this one should move through the Foundry pretty quickly. I think you should update the graphics one or two more times before we move it into the MFW.

So, what exactly are these islands? Are they completely fictional? Why is this called "Latitude Longitude"?

Right off the bat, I can tell you your combined map will not have very good gameplay, given the movement between islands. If there are three people, each with their own island in, say, a No Spoils game, it would be tragically long-winded. You could consider going the route of Evil DIMwit's Four Corners map concept, requiring each player to have a presence in each island (I think that's how he was going to do it - it's been awhile).

Second, I think it would be terrible if the Southern Island map were approved for 1v1-only. Just because it has less than 24 territories doesn't mean it should be approved for 1v1. Seems like abuse of the 1v1-only option for maps (think of this).

This is not going to move quickly. I need to get a lot done before this is even worthy of the foundry, let alone getting it moved on. ;)

So far, the islands are fictional.
The reason for Latitude Longitude, is so that the maps tie in to one another. As long as there is something apart from the graphics that matches.
The movement between the islands still needs work. I did not want to go down Evils route as that is his route. But I will have a read of his thread and see what was discussed.
The 1v1 map option is only one option. As for being an abuse of the 1v1 option. :?
Bloody hell Sully, no way in hell can you accuse me of being generous with the pixels. The combined map is standard size, the 3 small maps are the standard size for the small map and these are the large maps. Before you accuse me of that, remember I still need to make the small map for each of the maps.

What I am thinking and as soon as the forth map is up, I will post it, but I was thinking of a different style of GP for each of the islands. If that proves to differcult, then having 3 more small 24 territ small maps seems a little tedious to me. Who really wants to have 3 more maps this size at once.

Lol, I think you misunderstood what I meant by the link. I simply meant apply what MrBenn said there to the 1v1 thing. Anywho, I know my wording was a bit strong, but I assure you, I don't mean to dog on your map.

I like your last idea about creating different gameplay for each island. Could be cool. You could do something like have an overarching theme for the three islands and a theme within that overarching theme for each island (e.g. the overarching theme could be "time", and the islands are different periods of time (Northern could be medieval/past, Central Island could be modern/present, Southern Island could be post-modern/future).

Not to worry Sully, just got out of bed and read the posts, so my head is not to clear.

With time, how would that work for the larger map? Poor northern island using sticks against southern's ray guns

*chuckle* It was just an idea. You can think of something else that fits. You could do an island that's mountainous, an island that's forest-y, and an island that's desert-y. Or, you could do an island that's uninhabited and ruled by jungle and rainforest, an island that's inhabited by multiple villages of tribal peoples, and an island that's been developed and industrialized. Just spitting out ideas to get your brain moving!

The first one is what I was going to try, Desert, grass, blah blah blah. Will put that onto the list for when the graphics need to be sorted.

Well, it may be something to think about for gameplay purposes, if you wan each island to be different in gameplay as well as theme/graphics.

Will give it some thought this week. Still need to get the north island up (today sometime).

When that is up, we can look at GP options for each and then work the graphics for each one. But the more I think of it, your time theme sounds more like a winner.

The first map is the main map that consists of 3 islands. Right now, graphically they look horrendous but this will change. I am not too concerned with the graphics for this one yet. Game play wise, it will be a normal map with continent bonuses and standard deployment. Reinforcements will be 1 for every 3 territs. The only difference to a normal map is that you can only travel from island to island through Jumbo. This is a killer neutral set at 15. Another way to connect the maps is with the airports. Am thinking about dropping Jumbo and have the connections like this- North 1 - Central 1 - Central 2 - South 1 - South 2 - North 2. All would be one way attacks which should make getting around the board slightly harder.
show: 3 islands

The first small map is the North island. This one like the 3 island map will be standard game play. With 24 territs on it, the drops will be fair for all game sizes. There will be 8 positions of 3 territs each (max of 2 given out). I will put a 2 neutral into each bonus zone.
show: north island

The central island will be slightly different. Going to put on some symbols for this map and make it a winning condition map. 5 symbols dealing with ?. Where to put them ?.
show: Central island

The last map. This is going to change the most. Size needs to be larger, territs need to be increased to 24. Would like this one to have a losing condition placed onto it. Like the winning condition though, still need to work out the game play mechanics for it.
show: southern map


All of this may just be ramblings of a mad man, but it helps me to get ideas if I write it all down.

Just an update to the Central island for now. This is the large version for the Central island map. Now has the required 24 territs. Going to come up 3 a story for the 3 islands, and split it between the 3 small maps. So this will get the middle part.
