Luxembourg [Quenched]

Postby Ruben Cassar on Sun Apr 20, 2008 5:19 pm

Stamps:

Territories: 19 (18 + 1 neutral)
Regions: 5
Special Bonuses: Luxembourg City will start as a neutral (3) and whoever conquers it gets +1.
Impassable Objects: Since this is a very small map I was thinking that I should not include any impassable objects to make the gameplay fast.

I have added some textures to the bordering states and put up a poll. I kept the textures subtle on purpose because I don't want to affect the simplicity of the map or detract the attention from Luxembourg itself.

Version 1.13 Small
Image

Version 1.13 Big
Image

Version 1.12 - New texture for bordering states
Image

Version 1.11a - New flags

Version 1.10 - New bonuses, region renamed to Lëtzebuerg, new title and minor graphical refinements
http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll127/Ruben_Cassar/Luxembourg110.jpg

Version 1.9 - Added region names to the mini map
http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll127/Ruben_Cassar/Luxembourg19.jpg

Version 1.8 - New mini map, refined coat of arms, changed territory name, added flag to mini map.

Version 1.7

Version 1.6

Version 1.5

I want to make a Luxembourg map.

However I was thinking of keeping the territory number low. I was thinking 18 like Doodle Earth. I remember I was very sceptical when Doodle Earth was being made and I objected against such a low number of territories, however it seems to be very popular and the concept seems to have worked.

Is there demand for a map with 18 territories for quick games and 1vs1? Give me your feedback and I'll decide if this is the way to go for this map.

Although, can you get enough territories out of it?
I think it will be great, I love your maps!

"YES"

I love small territ maps. I think we need another 18 count. I think when the 8-player update was added, the request was for more larger territ count maps, to allow for fair 8 player games. But I'm ready for another good small map. You know you have my support on this.

What would you use as impassables? Roads? 'Cause, you know, mountains are out of the question -- seeing as any one mountain is bigger than the entire country! :lol: ;)

Hi guys. Glad to see some feedback and that people want the map.

I already have a draft of the map broken in 18 territories. Actually I found a political map of Luxembourg or something like that which was broken into over 50 territories, so the real actual size of a nation has little to do with a playable map.

I haven't thought about impassable objects yet but Luxembourg is full of rivers (or rivulets :)) so that should not be a problem. I will be focusing on the San Marino map for the time being so this is kind of a long term project.

Thanks for the support.

I am not sure about chocolate. I think Belgium and the UK top that chart.

What I am sure is that Luxembourg is by far the richest country on the planet on a per capita basis.

I know Iceland is right up there as well.

And isn't Notre Dame in Luxembourg as well?

Iceland is rich but not that rich. You might be confusing Iceland with Norway. Norway is the 3rd largest producer of oil in the world and that has made it a very rich country with low unemployment. You might want to check the CIA Factbook (google it!) for some statistics.

Notre Dame is a church in Paris, France. We need to work on your geography RJ. :p

is the colour scheme/pallet blue?
im not too sure about the blue, but obviously its just a first draft,
when are you going to add the terit lines? i dont like the way that its kinda floating, i would prefer it to be in context, i.e. having the other boardering countries visible
EDIT:
also i dont like the way that youve got a big cont, really big compared to the rest, and then a really small one - will that work or not??
