Cow Map

Postby dana1971 on Sat Oct 29, 2011 6:39 pm

Map Name: Cow
Mapmaker(s): Dana1971
Number of Territories: 66
Special Features: A one way system to an auto deploying cow pat, and a grass patch that grows killer neutrals.
What Makes This Map Worthy of Being Made: It's a theme that I hope will open the door to more dissection themed maps. You could pretty much make a map from anything from the seeds of a strawberry to the human skeleton.

I am also applying for a super size map sticker.

To Do List
Add numbers to make sure it all fits, and listen to any feedback.

Thing to discuss
One game play element I'm considering is should players be able to access the grass from the tongue as well as the hoofs or does that make it to confusing?
Is the balance of neutrals correct?

Ahhh This topic has moved into the drafting folder from the melting pot folder. So now I seem to have two topics in the drafting folder when I only want one.

I could combine them, but maybe that's confusing? If I delete this one will the one in the melting pot also be deleted?

I'm not that used to forums so any help would be great. I don't want to piss anyone off with my ignorance.

Best Wishes,
Dana

The cow Pat isn't a part of the cow so it needed to be separate, and I made it auto deploy because I thought it would add an interesting element to the game. Because it's on the side, out of the way, and hard to access I thought it may be a good place for someone to quietly build up and eventually spread to the feet and take over. That's how Mad Cow disease got started in the UK I think.

I'll lower the auto deploy regions to 3, and the grass to 8.

I'll also allow the lord of the flies to bombard the cow pat, so in a fog of war game it will allow the lord of the flies to see what's going on in the pat.

I've thought about it and I'm considering another idea from greenoaks who suggest the Tongue (Mouth) should be able to attack the grass. This would allow back doors into most of small bonuses accept the tail. If the tongue can attack the grass I would most likely make it a two way thing, so if you take the grass you can go to either of the legs or the tongue.

I plan to post a new version tomorrow in the drafting room, and apply for a super size sticker tomorrow.

I'd be interested to know what people think about the added tongue and fly options?

Good or bad?

Best Wishes,
Dana

i am all for my suggestion being a two-way event. the mouth eats the grass but it could be viewed as the grass ends up in the mouth. so moving from one to the other is reasonable.

a fly going directly to the cow pat also makes sense. not sure about bombarding or +2 there but i'll give that some more thought.

the lines marking the territories look much better but they thicken in places. is that intentional?

I would prefer the lines to vary in thickness to give more of an organic feel, but if that,s against the rules I,ll change it.

I look forward to your thoughts on the lord of the flies and grass regions.

Thanks isaiah40,

I guess now I am waiting for supersize map approval?

Then a draft stamp.

Is there anything else I need to do until then?

I've read the handbook and it seems I need three stamps before I start to work on the coding.

Yes this does appear to be the spiritual descendant of Beef Cuts. However this looks 1 million times better!

I think this is a great idea, and I always have. It's funny, educational, and objectively its a pretty sweet map.

I'm totally giving this the Bison King Sticky of Approval! Keep up the good work.

FYI, Rl took hold this past week, so I will be looking at your supersize application a little closer in the next couple of days. One question, I need to know the sizes of both the small and the large you would like to use. Please edit your application while I take a look at it.
