I love the 1st idea about a fixed bonus at the start. A lot of maps should have it. I definitely think this a great idea to be developed, however, it would be better, if it had a specific theme (as you've mentioned it). I think Europe might be able to support that many territories, but I'm aware of the job it would take, so I'll just shut up. Thanks for your efforts and I hope this will be made.

Yeah I would make the dark impassable areas thicker and darker.
Add more colored territories. Maybe make it 8 different colors. I think the colored territories are far too split up. Split them into two areas...maybe give a small bonus for holding 1...and an additional bonus if you can hold both same colored areas. The concept of that many individual areas is cool. Maybe spruce it up some. Do they have to be hexes? Maybe create different personal individual shapes? Great idea though.

Certainly one of the most impresively big maps I've seen, and even though I'm normally not into the big ones like world 2.0, this one looks quite fun! You'd almost need more players for a map like this! I'd like to try it out some time when it becomes available!

I voted yes simply because it is slightly different than what we have and what is being worked on.

Not a fan of no theme. Visually right now, it kind of looks like mountains, fields, waterways etc. Now that I think about it, it starts to look like another game I've played called Settlers of Catan. Or even older educational games, that had you mining or drilling for oil.

I suggest set the dark to below hex.:
Q5, D8, C15, E20 and M18
that will make all bonus regions have 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 neigbour respectively

Interesting map.

You could give objectives to the white hexs and name the map in function of those objectives. Something like taking the capitals in Europe1914, even if it could be something abstract (headquarters, islands, oasis, and so on...).

Hope it helped

Not sure if this has been posted, but you could do some kind of Bee hive theme since they are hexagon.

I like it!!! The cap on the the bonus are a great idea. I was also thinking of a beehive when I was looking at the map. If you have to have a theme, that would not be a bad one. No theme works just as well though. I would definately play!!

Voted no, not a fan of big block maps? As some have mentioned it would be a Quad map at best? But this is just my opinion, looks like the yes votes rule for now so think you should go ahead with it. Wonderful thing about CC lots of maps and something for everybody. Hope you guys keep coming up with different maps, keeps the whole site more interesting

Postby Winged Cat on Fri Sep 04, 2009 9:21 pm

I can think of a theme you could add without having to reduce the number of territories.

There's an old fiction concept called "Pave The Earth". It's a satirical future paradise, where the important people drive gas-guzzling SUVs all day, with no other purpose but to drive; everyone else is consigned to pits, which offer up fuel for the SUV overlords and hamburgers for their drivers.

In this map - make the white areas the pits (and objective: control them all to win); the various areas (with their current colors) could be roads (blue), parking lots (beige), quarries/pavement production facilities (red), salt flats (purple), and grassy wilderness (green). The impassible borders would simply be the normal barriers one might find at the edges of these things (for instance, the quarries' borders are impassible cliffs, except for the few paths leading into each quarry area - and since each such area has only one space that can be entered, make that space the plant that makes pavement from the quarry's product; likewise, the roads only have on/off ramps at certain locations).

Yes, it's a large number of areas. That's the point: it is what's left of Earth (or, at least, a large section thereof).

As many said, im also not a fan of the no theme. Our classic map now has no theme, and in that change there were alot of people that no longer wanted to play the map. Not sure if it would have the same effect here as it is "original" in size, but completely bland as a map in general...

Also dont like the idea of this being included in the random map gameplay, as I might kill myself if i ever had to play a 1v1 on this map, in which undoubtedly the 1st player, even if only receiving 10 armies 1st turn, would hold a huge upperhand.

Not a fan, though perhaps if it was spiced up and slightly toned down size wise it might appeal to me more, but we might as well just make 350 connected squares if we make this...

i got the pm and i think this would be a really cool amp in addition to having lots of territories i think each territory should have lots of troops maybe all start with 40 that way it would be a completly good but different map

good idea needs work but im behind it
