What Rock said.

Also no more clutter. Rename the football field if you want but leave the plane.

maybe leave the tank in (it's a nice subtle touch) but get rid of the other ornaments (ball, flasks, books). I think this one is god enough to look at with the decorations that are more part of the map (doors, stairs, fountain, etc.)

Wow. alot has been happening since i last posted.

I still hate the shapes of the sorority and faternity houses.

I also think that the pile of books should be replaced. Looks too clipart.

Anyone else want to add an opinion on the extra art/no extra art question before I make a final executive decision?

like it without the cheesy clip-art much better! I like the lighter tank, too, though... just my vote...
Maybe go back to football field, but put a few craters in it?

The Final Forge period has concluded for the Conquer Club University Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for live play (barring any Lack vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

one question after playing this map i was trying to remember where i had seen the latin quote before and after remember i realised it makes no sense:

"it is a wonderful thing"

in my opinion that makes no sense i think if it is possible to change it to fit the whole quote in

"Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori."

which makes a lot more sense

"it is a wonderful thing to die for ones country"

Just a side note...

This map is bloody awesome!!!

Jota you've done it again! Everyone of your maps is simply unbelievable. I like the USApocalypse map also, had a good game on there, I don't know what it is, but I think the CCU is my favourite map about now!

I think the idea of the quad...because you can get to anyone nearly from it....unless someone controls it.

It's been a while since I've studied latin also but decorum means "proper" the "dulce et" seem to get lost in translation, and there is no word for 'thing' in there as far as I can tell.

Somewhat explained earlier, see here.

Wikipedia wrote: Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori is a line from the Roman lyrical poet Horace's Odes (iii 2.13). The line can be rendered in English as: "It is sweet and appropriate to die for one's country," or: "It is sweet and fitting to die for the fatherland."

He maybe right on dulce meaning wonderful to be honest I have no clue but if he is then the translation should be:

"It is wonderful and proper"
not "its a wonderful thing."
