Looks interesting Vic - you Atilla killer. Love the history, although the the anniversary of the War of 1812 is coming next year, and being Canadian, it would be great to see a map illustrating our conquest over the "yankee dogs".

If you can get this map to beta I'll give it a go.

The War of British Arrogance & Imperialism? Yes, that would be a great map. Very easy, actually. Maybe we can work on that one if this one is approved.

I appreciate your support.

Looks great Vic, congrats.........

Not familiar with the region much, so I can't appreciate it's flavor as Raston seems too, but I can see that you put some effort in giving it that flavor.

I also think that you integrated interesting game play action into it.

Looking forward to testing it out.

Well done bud, cheers

Great map. I like the cultural treasures. Your 5 year old is a great art teacher....should be proud of his student.

Hope this goes through so some day we can play it on CC.

What about Charleston SC - that's pretty deep ;)

But nice map so far.

Not really, it isn't :). That's just a geographically accurate city-map of a beautifully historic city...but lacking all cultural distinctions as a southern city. It's just a big territory map with suburb-type bonuses.

Are you talking about a map in the Foundry of which I am not aware? The only Charles-SC map I know is what I described above. It IS a great map, but there's not depth like this one would have with multiple attack vectors (bombardments, cross-map assaults), standard bonuses as well as auto-deploys and "triggered" bonuses (If you hold A, then bonus B; if you hold A and C, then bonuses B and D, etc.), etc.

yeah - it was sort of a joke. But Charleston is indeed deep south, maybe the map is just a map, but the city has deep southern history.

Couldn't agree more. I just wish the map reflected that history! Would be great to have a Charles-SC, Part II with that included.

Love the map and looking forward to playing on it. Like mentioned a couple times, I really like the fact that there is some historical and cultural reference on it so it is not just another “region” map.

One suggestion would be to label the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico, even though it should be obvious to anybody who can see the boats and knows the area a little. Some people may not know. Just a thought.

Also, I know you wanted a suggestion for an objective. What about holding all 3 major colleges/universities? They seem spaced out enough.

Good luck.

JJ

Good suggestions, JJ. The River and Gulf should definitely be labeled.

I'll listen for some more suggestions as per the objective win. I like the Jones County idea, and I like yours as well. Since Mississippi is typically 47th, 48th, 49th, or, (usually) 50th in education among the 50 states, holding all universities would be hilarious as an objective win. "Get really educated = you win." Perhaps also with the capitol in order to represent government grants to go to college since Mississippi is also (usually) one of the worst in poverty.

:D

I laugh at my self in this, guys, so please don't take offense.

I was told the Map could be moved to the drafting stage but it can't be submitted hand-drawn. I really need some help here.

ANYONE READING THIS who can use GIMP or something, please help me out. I don't know how to use this stuff.

Any chance I can get someone who knows photo shop or GIMP to start working on this map so we can get it into the draft stage? That's the only thing holding it up as far as I can tell.

Any one willing to help?
