Re: USA 2.1 [10 Mar 2013] Awaiting Beta!!

Postby thenobodies80 on Wed Apr 17, 2013 5:08 pm

          Beta - Quenching

---The development period has concluded for the USA2.1 Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Beta Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for BETA Play. After an extended period of time in BETA and once all quirks and issues have been resolved, the map will be put into Full Play (barring any Admins or Foundry Foreman vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

              Image


While the map is in BETA Play, there are a couple of administrative tasks that are required of the mapmaker(s) in addition to the initial gameplay testing:
    1. Please ensure that the first post of the thread contains all the necessary information to help future visitors to the development thread; it's particularly important to ensure the most recent images are there, along with any helpful guides (such as gameplay quirks/nuances or the location/size of any starting neutrals etc.)
    2. It is the responsibility of the mapmaker(s) to ensure that they respond to further feedback in a timely and constructive manner.
    3. Write a "creative" map description and send it to the Foundry Foreman via PM. You're encouraged to post it into the first post of the thread as well; the description will be used to populate the maps database.

Also which state borders are hard to see.

In the red southeast, imo, between the carolinas, tennessee, georgia and alabama. It could just me my eyes. Obviously one needs to adjust to a new map, but I was also confused with the delaware border and with new jersey, but I can't think of a better solution other than solid black borders, and that probably wouldn't look too good. I think a player just needs to focus and adjust to the differences between the borders and the assault lines after a few rounds.

Awesome map, might be a new fav.

Sorry, I haven't been here since the beginning, but at least i can add some input now. Philly may need to be moved west, or the Jersey border eastward. Technically Maine doesn't border Mass. Maine only borders one state in real life. It's the only US state to have that. But then you lose that augusta/boston link.

Finally, and it's just my personal bias, that missouri/illinois/indiana/kentucky border is a clusterf. It's like when I tried to draw a map of the US as a kid and the states in the middle ended up looking like irregular polygons. I'm super impressed with the hard work put into this and with how it's come out, but as someone who lived in Illinois for 8 years, I squirm when I see it look like a cartoon rocket falling into an oversized condom. :O

Maybe too little too late from me. I'll look past it and enjoy a new twist on gameplay on a colorful and complex map!
