One thing: the bonus legend isnt' very clear, the quilt patterns are partially obscured by the bonus numbers... maybe you could move the numbers to the sides of the patches or make the patches larger?

Also you should probably also have names for the bonus areas.

Also, the 2nd and 4th one look kinda similar... maybe tweak the colours a bit?

One more thing, and this might be too troublesome to actually do, but it would be really cool if you could make all the text look like it was stitched on...

Pokemon meets grandma's quilting club...

The concept is novel... but I'm not sure I'd play it more than once cause I really don't give a crap about quilting.

The more I look at the map, the more I think I'd like to play on it, if only for a nice change of pace from all the war themed maps we have.

there is absolutely NOTHING in common with that map. not the gameplay and certainly not the graphics and obviously neither the theme. :shock:

The twist I get in my stomach when I look at it is very similar to when I look at the monsters map ;) . I like a lot of your maps but not this one so I'll opt out on following it.

I think it's sweet, go for it. I'm excited about your graphic skills, there is nothing to pinpoint.

I agree with Natty that bonus patches can be difficult to distinguish from each other, with names or more diffrend color it will be more clearly.

when that is said, then who ever wear that shirt has a creepy taste :mrgreen:

I'm going to give this map a look over maybe today or tomorrow, and see what real feedback I can give it, since I think I'd actually like to see it in play.

This is why I love the Foundry. We can have the following maps all in development at the same time: Quilt Wars, Trench Warfare, and Tokyo.

V3:

*made the patches in the legend a bit bigger. i hope the textures are visible now.
*made all the terit names look like they're made of thread whilst still keeping them as readable as possible.
*changed some colours

thanks for the support.
i have increased the patches (see previous post).
if it is still a problem i will try and rearrange them some other way and put the bonus numbers outside so the texture is fully visible.

true, it's great to see different mapping styles and different gameplay experiences.

I really like this idea, and the map is just adorable. Though I think bonus continents are techincally supposed to have names... which also might help clear up the confusion with which bonus is which. And since there are so many territories and names, perhaps it's a community quilt, and each bonus region was stitched on by a different family? You can have the Smiths, the Johnsons, etc. as the bonuses.

i tried using lighter colours like the blue orange or green but i had to darken them because the text and the army labels were barely visible.
