gettysburg/ picketts charge

Postby jefjef on Thu Apr 16, 2009 2:25 am

picketts charge map would be fun. be a fairly large map if done at brigade level & the paths taken... also includes lots of artillery batteries........... bonus areas could be control of divisions.... both sides. union side should also include reserves that were stationed behind the troops at the wall to balance North V South areas......

I've been thinking about this idea quite a lot myself, having visited the battlefield this summer …

This idea was suggested before. But it fizzled and died.I hope it doesn't die again. I love this idea.

If RJ can get a draft made with his skills, then this map will defiantly get moving, I hope he does, looking forward to it :D

I'm working on it... Should be within the next week or 2. We're working on gameplay. I would like to have at least a basic map with gameplay to post - but it's not going to be a straight-forward classic style map. There's going to be an objective. It's just tough making it fair for 2-8 players, when it's a north vs. south battle. But it's coming.

Hello guys
I've been working with RJ on this idea for a few weeks and like he said, he should (hopefully) have a draft up in the next week or 2. It's such a complex battle and we are trying to keep it as historically accurate as possible. But it will be almost impossible to keep it 100% accurate. We are working hard to make sure we have all the key players in the right positions. But like he said in a previous post, we are trying to make an objective to win the "battle." not just simply two sides pounding away at each other.
I have a pretty extensive knowledge of the battle but no artistic ability...that's where RJ comes in ;)

Can't wait to see the posts when a draft is finally posted..we are both pretty busy right now but are working hard to get something to show you guys!

stay tuned....
