I'm obviously no good at searching, because I can't find the original post on antarctic.

well, I`ve got some ideas, but cant really work on it.
It would be a lot easyer if you post here a basic image, just to have an Idea.

wouldn't it be better if someone picked up and finished the antarctic map as it was in the FF already, rather than start anew?

I'd be in favor, but whoever does so should probably talk to eipi first.

Why would it be better? And like said, eipi's permission would be required for that... I don't think he is on this site anymore.

1) The map has a lot of gameplay kinks worked out already
2) its a solid idea
3) All the graphics nitpicks are about done.
4) It's got a lot of support
5) we'll have an antarctic map within in about a month
6) I would avoid a lot of redundancy

IH, why do you only address the first part of my post but ignore the second?

1. Why would it be better?

Well, I figured it didn't need answering. If someone was going to pick up his map a pm would be in order, which presuming he has email notifications still on then he would get the message. And I presume there's one way or another to get an email address.

I'm just throwing this out there
has anyone played Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey for the nintendo ds?
i think it would be quite the epic map if it had alternate universes and demons and such...
I'm not crazy, it's just that it was set in Antarctica and it came up in my head when i saw the thread

Copyright, copyright, copyright, copyright... copyright.

Anyway I want to do a plain old Antarctic map. With penguins, possibly.

Well it doesn't have to be the exact title and gameplay as the Nintendo game... demons of Antarctica isn't a copyrighted concept.

But I dunno how well it would fly anyway.

Yeah like I said, I just want to do the Antarctic map for now. Eipi hasn't responded so far, I'll give it a few days, but if he doesn't, then my offer stands for the gameplay makers...

If no one wants to do the gameplay for the map, and eipi doesn't show up to give permission, then I'll make the gameplay myself eventually, but that will mean this map will be delayed quite a bit - at least until Lunar war is finished.
