I don't mind the icon, but I'd feel weird calling it a plate / food.
As for other possibilities, what about the old goblet (large size) w a bunch purple grapes?
I'll look at the larger icons again a bit later and see if anything grabs me

I see what you mean. Well, if you do not try something, you never know.

I like the idea of a large goblet and will see if I can get grapes/olives around it.

Will get the plate finished and do the goblet design as Icepack said, then let you choose which one.

Lots more food. All over the board you wil see slight differences and icons that are with others.
Ones I like the most but do not let this influence you. ;)

I like H7 and O12.
You don't want too much detail on a map like this.
By the way, are you sure you like the alphabet the way it is? Going up, not down?

N7 does look good...but won't some of these cause issues with the 888's?

Have you thought about maybe like, a yellow olive wreath around the box? Or something like that? It might clash with the Ring of Fire, but you could maybe change the ring of fire to actual flames coming up from the bottom of the box or something...

Nope, all are good for the army numbers. When I decide on which one and it now looks like N7 is a winner, I can and will tweak it a tad to make sure it fits, centred and it does not muck up the 88s.

Legend looks good now. If no one objects this week, will get on and do the small one next week.

In an effort to generate some conversion here's what I have to say, I know I can be more than quiet at times, but listen: It's a nice looking map, but but overall it just isn't all that good. A couple years ago it probably woulda passed through, but not now. Honestly I'm reminded of early 1980's video games from this, the whole of the map just seems to have that grainy pixelly quality. Also I don't get a good sense of the maze at all, it just has blobby sections of impassibles that are supposed to be rock. The labyrinth I've almost always seen has nice smooth walls, and impossibly huge. While I understand the limitations here, I just am not feeling any of that here, just a bad video game look. Sorry koontz.

RB0, I know you are quiet and without any comments from you, it is hard for me to steer a map in a direction that you would like.
It's a nice looking map, but but overall it just isn't all that good.

Contradicting yourself in a sentence is not always a good way.
Honestly I'm reminded of early 1980's video games from this

I am glad. This was the look that was went for.
the whole of the map just seems to have that grainy pixelly quality.

grainy yes, trying to draw grass at the scale, you will always get that look, as for pixelly, I doubt that it has pixelation?
Also I don't get a good sense of the maze at all, it just has blobby sections of impassibles that are supposed to be rock. The labyrinth I've almost always seen has nice smooth walls, and impossibly huge. The labyrinth I've almost always seen has nice smooth walls, and impossibly huge. While I understand the limitations here, I just am not feeling any of that here, just a bad video game look.

Those blobby sections (I take it you mean the small ones) where put in so the movement part of the legend could be taken out. As for the walls, as you say, I am limited for the size and if I had to redo the whole map over again, then I might of taken it in a different way, but that would mean know a complete rethink of all game play. So by doing what you ask, are you really telling me that I need to bin this one after so many months, and go all the way back to the drafting board?

I just am not feeling any of that here, just a bad video game look. Sorry koontz.

Not a problem. But this is what frustrates me the most. Natty did it a lot I it really pissed me off no end. What you have posted is all opinion and there is nothing specific. You say the walls are not how you would like them, but you do not say how you would like them? I understand about the height thing but that comes from the games aspect of the map. How can the Greeks watch if the walls are a 100 feet tall.

About the walls though, did you want to see them smoother or something different?

I do think smoother would be better, I just don't know how you'd get a better visual for the maze itself. I'm not saying to go back to the drawing board for it, not at all. Something like this:

incorporated into your design I think would do wonders. Often the maze is depicted as being round, but this is square and so it the map. The impassible rock could be more like blocks than amorphous rock. Those would be true impassibles, while passible, thin walls would be the borders between the territory blocks. Giving us the image of the maze... the Labyrinth.

The point... of my statement is that a nice map is not a map that meets with the standards of the Foundry. It is my opinion, yes, but no one else is saying anything, refute me, please, I welcome the discussion...

The 80's type video game look, great then, you hit it pretty well. I hadn't notice any other mention of it before though... at least not in the terminology I put it in, if I missed something then I'm sorry.

No, the style was never brought up. As for smother walls, that I can do. Will get it done this weekend for you. That is a nice maze, shame when I started this one I did not know the things I do now, or it could of turned out more like that, but if you feel the map is not labs enough, I can always revert to a previous title (Greek Games).

I know the overall look is very same y in that I have identical icons, spacing between territs, etc etc. But that all comes from game play and making use of the space I have.

RB0, give me a list of of your top things you do not like, and what you would like to see. More than happy to get it done.

Is this the reason you came here. Game 11328673 My selective bombing. :lol:
