How much has the gameplay changed since Cairns' original draft? I remember pouring over it previously, and would like to know if I can go and pick out some of my old analysis, or whether I'll need to start afresh...

Everything is the same save for the battleships scheme, which we are trying to figure out something satisfactory for.

Coolio. As a matter of administrative ease, please could you add a link to the original cairnswk map thread to the first post. You could also remove the "April Competition" tag from the map title too :P

Let's resolve this Battleship thing then...

1) So what about this idea? But perhaps extend the Battleships to all the landing craft and make the landing craft a neutral 1 or something. Then the beaches will be able to bombard the Battleships, effectively taking them out of the game.

2) Another option that I've been considering is just having one battleship that operates like Naval Power in Eastern Hemisphere. All landing craft or perhaps all beaches can one way attack it.

The problem if the landing craft attack it is that the landing craft have decay. So essentially a player will off the bat have to decide beach or battleship. OR if the player holds their beach well enough, they can decide at a later time to deploy on a craft, which should still be at 1, and then take the battleship. The only problem is, if all the landing craft are taken out then there is no way to eliminate the battleship.

I know you are waiting on new images for Stalingrad, so now that my first exams are finished i will get on that later today.

Thanks Cairns! I will try to get some map xml updates done shortly to lure you back into map making. :mrgreen:


LOL.
.....truthfully...the xml update i would like to see occur is the one for the Gallipoli Campaign, that allows the battleships to reduce to neutral over time by decay of -1 from starting numbers of 20 or so if it is not fortified.

So ok, let's make that solution number 3. I'd prefer the the third solution, but given the admin's track record with getting XML updates out sooner rather than later, I think we need to ask ourselves whether or not we feel like waiting.

One solution to this would be to use a back up plan, one of the previous ideas I've specified, and if the XML update goes through in the meantime, revert the gameplay to that solution. The benefits of this would be that work can begin on the graphics rather than wait around for XML to be updated and the time waiting won't be put to waste.

[Moved]

It would appear that development of this map has stalled. If the mapmaker wants to continue with the map, then one of the Foundry Moderators will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system, after an update has been made.

IH. Bruceswar has just put up a call for this to re-started...how do you feel about that? Can you manage it?

For the battleship dilema....Sully just pointed out to me in Spanish Armada that the losing condition could be the solution to this battleship dilema.
Because all the battleships are not the only starting territories, then the losing condition would be that if a player has no armies left on all the other territories, then they are automatically eliminated anyways, regardless of what is on the battleships.
What do you think?

The losing condition is a brilliant solution and it would solve the whole problem!

This month is a bit crammed full for me with maps though... I could possibly take it up in August.

Re: [Vacation - valid untill Jan 2012] - Gallipoli

Postby thenobodies80 on Tue Feb 07, 2012 5:12 pm

The six months of vacation has expired, for this reason this topic is now labeled as [Abandoned]. If the original mapmaker wants to continue this map project it's fine but an update must provided. From this moment anyone else is free to take this project without the original mapmaker permission, but it has to be started from the scratch.

Give every man your ear, but few thy voice. Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.
