worth pursuing?

I like it, very different from other maps. How do get to Alcatraz?

It's a good view, you'll have to get rid of the clouds in the bottom left though. If you want it to work, it's gotta be believeable

those arent actually clouds, it was an effect I put on the water. doesnt look that good though, easy to ditch. I was attempting to get the look of waves coming in from the pacific, didnt work though.

How do get to Alcatraz?
you dont. yet. but i can make it so you can.

glad to see you've posted this johloh. how many territories & bonus regions are you thinking? Some of the current territories are hard to distinguish because they're so small. And too bad the richmond bridge didn't come through in the satelite photo.

Quick thoughts on territories: Alameda makes more sense as two, not three; Piedmont should be nestled in the middle of Oakland, above the lake; the Berkeley division seems arbitrary, and leaves one very small; how about an outer and inner Richmond maybe?; what about making the GG Bridge a territory rather than just an attack route?

agreed. that was the initial way i had it...(navy base / residential)

Piedmont should be nestled in the middle of Oakland, above the lake
agreed. ill put it in.

the Berkeley division seems arbitrary, and leaves one very small; how about an outer and inner Richmond maybe?
yeah most of my east bay stuff was pretty arbitrary. I was just trying to get something up to see if people were interested in it. if youre interested i could post a version with the east bay blank and you could draw on lines that I could follow, since youre more familiar (i grew up in half moon bay)

what about making the GG Bridge a territory rather than just an attack route?
sounds good.

I'd be happy to be able to contribute. You're not far off in the east bay: you more or less have what I'd do: Alameda, the former naval air station (now Alameda Point), east oakland, downtown, piedmont, the port, emeryville, berkeley, Cal, Albany, and maybe Redwood and Tilden for the two hills territories. Then West Contra Costa County is easy enough to assign names to.

Nice early work.

I really like the concept of the satellite photo. This map could be a definite winner. Keep going I'd love this to see final forge.

I can only comment when some names are in (you guys confuse me with names).

But very good thus far, and a completly new approach to a map, I LOVE IT.

You orinigally posted this in my thread, but I'm okay with it as long as both maps can be used. But it may be hard to get final forged because of the satalite 3D view.

the white lines dividing territorites are really elegant against the "color burn" efect on the city. i like how the colors go with teh territories.

the dotted lines (are these BART or ferries?) are a little confusing. is there a way to rethink these connections?

Just my opinion but the Satillite veiw may be cool, but it's probably bad for playability.
