This one seems pretty generic. When I first saw the title, I was expecting something similar to DiM's Clash of King's. Will this be a 1v1 map? Somebody should make one of those, since they are allowed now, yes?

Don't get me wrong, it looks nice, and seems like it could be fun, but going from the Zombie/Lab map to this one, just seems odd. Personally, I would much rather see you continue work on that map than to start on this one. Like I said, it just seems way to generic and not very in depth, the way the zombie map is. Sorry if this sounds harsh, just giving my honest opinion.

I do not do generic maps. Never have, never will. ;)

That is up to the boss, not asked for it and do not really want this to be 1v1 as yet.

Do not worry, the Escape map is being worked on, but creatively it was at a dead end. Remember, it started life as the West Wing over a year ago. That will take a lot of time to get right. I was just at an impasse. It will be back but till then, I need to keep going. So many ideas, so little time.

OK, time for the new map then. Larger, more complex and graphically a tad better. This is still in the concept stage and my thinking is that this will become a lot more complicated. Need to add bombardments between the fleets, shore to sea and other things.

Right on, I'm liking it more now. It's just that first draft you posted seemed like basic gameplay on a basic, small map. It reminded me too much of Luxembourg.

Now, it's got some life into it. More ships, more complexity...I'm liking it.

Keep up the work. I'll check in periodically to see how progress is coming along. Once you have some more added to the map, I can give more feedback.
