Map Name: Kingdom of Denmark
Mapmaker(s): Map Graphic and Gameplay By Flapcake --- XML By Koontz1973
Number of Territories: 62
Number of bonus areas: 10
Number of cities with shields: 5
Special Features: Victory, claim any 4 cities with a shield and hold it for one round. Cities with shields autodepoly +2 troop. 2 normal areas (searute) always start with 1 neutral.

What Makes This Map Worthy of Being Made: Denmark is a small country but with so many islands its hard to conquer

History of Denmark (short version) Never any civil wars, occupied by Nazi Germany 1940-1945. Many wars with Sweden and Germany. From about year 960 it has been a kingdom, included Norway, Island and some of sweden untill 1848 where Denmark have been like it is today.

Im sure that Denmark would be a fun game, with so many territorys, borders and small islands it could be a long lasting and hard game for all.
The reason I like the idea that you can win by keeping all 5 cities with a shield is to make it harder to keep a bonus area and perhaps give players more inclined to attack each other. I'm not crazy with games that is over in 4-5 rounds, it's boring, I find it much more entertaining to play games that last long due to the tough obstacles, it is somewhat what I'm trying to find in the game Kingdom of Denmark.

I'll admit, Denmark hasn't had a map of its own yet! That being said, I don't really get the "war between municipalities" vibe. But this is a step in the right direction! Always glad to see a new mapmaker. Stick with it!

Your map image is way too large, there's no need for those dimensions with so few territories.

Your legend is also unnecessarily large. It's half the image and there isn't even so much information in it to justify the size.

I think you can well fit this map into the standard 800x800 size, or less.

Also, your borders look chopped and hasty... what software are you using?

Here's a lesson on effective space usage:

Why do you include Flensburg and Malmo? They're not in Denmark.

The ferry and the train seem a bit superfluous. What is the point of having the two killer neutrals protecting that one inconsequential territory?

Postby jcarter1 on Fri Aug 19, 2011 11:37 am

interesting concept... my main suggestions for changes are for the legend at the moment:

1) +1 auto deply when holding a city: most of your spots are cities... i am sure you mean only the ones that have a banner in it, but there is slight potential it MIGHT be confusing for people

2) i would change the text about flensburg and malmo to following: "Flensburg and Malmo: +1 autodeploy, not part of any bonus" (if you prefer the more text version, change "is" to "are" at least since its plural)

3) Capture all citys, include Flensburg and Malmo for one round to claim victory: Again the problem with citys... change to something like: "Victory: Hold all cities with banners, Flensburg and Malmo for one round!" ("citys" with "ie")

I am also not sure if like like those two neutral zones covering this one red area, but it seems this has already been adressed above.

keep up the good work,

The reason for Malmö and Flensburg, is because there live so many Danes there, eg. they speaks German just as well as Danish in south Jutland, and I thought it might give a little with some areas that are outside the bonus areas.

Bornholm is an island which has always been somewhat isolated but strategically placed in the Baltic Sea, this is not so diffrent than the Third crusade with the English Channel.

On Third Crusade the english channel is protecting a bonus area. Which also has a direct attack route to the east.
On your map Bornholm is a part of a bonus, and doesn't yield anything on its own.

I'm not disputing Bornholm's historic importance, just that it is not particularly important to the gameplay on this map, the way it's drawn out at the moment.

Well, Bornholm does balance out Sydsjælland. 7 territories with 3 borders would be a little tricky to value otherwise.

This is looking really good. Please make a 840x800 draft when you get the chance. For what it's worth I agree with Tokie in that the train and ferry seem a bit extraneous. If you can find a way to keep them go ahead, but if not I really don't think you'll be losing much in terms of a gameplay addition.

D'oh! I was looking at Natty's draft. I think you could follow suit, though, and drop the train and ferry as TBK said.

Postby Flapcake on Sun Aug 21, 2011 5:17 am

After thinking carefully over all of your good and useful comments, I have made following changes:

1. Flensburg and Malmö are dropped, Denmark is already strategic difficult to move around in, so I can see that it does not need to be more difficult.

2. The boundaries have been drawn up and purified.

3. Text box was a bit confusing, I hope that it is better to understand now.

Things I need to do: Attack routes, troop placement areas, some effects around, so it's not as boring to watch.


Feel free to give some feedback :P

The degradation is because you're saving as a low-quality JPEG. Try a PNG or high-quality JPEG instead.

Still, the degradation doesn't explain the pixelation on the borders. I don't know photoshop, but perhaps someone who does can tell you how to draw smooth borders with it...

First of all, what version of Photoshop? Secondly,what are you using to draw the outlines? To me it looks like you are using a pencil. Try using a brush instead to do the outlines. I like to use a 3px brush for the map outline and bonus borders, and a 2px brush for the territory borders. Take a look at my Fractured China map to see what I mean about the map outline and borders.

If you have any questions, please feel free to pm me anytime. :)

Iam using high-quality JEPG and it looks fine when called from my hard drive but from imageshack it looks reduced.
