          Beta - Quenching

---The development period has concluded for the Ethiopia 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.

Just FYI, the spoil is also "South Sedan"
Enjoying this map by the way, it's really good for 1:1 speed games.

I really like this map. It's great for trench 1v1 play. However, I think the three (3) cities need to go back to starting off neutral. In 1v1 play it's too easy to drop an initial bonus (which is crushing to the other player).

Thanks!

Thanks for reminding me what I've been meaning to post. Cairns, I think you have enough room to move he cities from the corners to their territs. Sometimes it's just so easy to overlook they're in the corners and can really screw you ups
