Thank you for the feedback. I feel like Antarctica would be just take up space and not really contribute anything to the game. Pluas I've got instructions there.
The motherships will autodeploy and the ships can attack their various weapons, one the weapons are held they auto-deploy based on their power (meaning nukes AD more than infantry does) and then the weapons can be used to attack or bombard within the mothership's quadrant. I should use quadrant instead of region to be clear.
So for example the Narigotti can only nuke territories in Asia and a little bit of Africa. Does it seem like +25 is a bit low for a nuclear weapon? Since it can only bombard, I think +50 would be much more realistic or possibly +40.
I like the idea of each alien race having unique traits, but I'm concerned with how I can fit in all that extra info on the maps without making it more crowded than it is.
Yeah it does suck for the humans on this map, they're pretty much beat. I imagine the situation being a lot like the Indians in Massachusetts, al of a sudden these Brits show up with cannon and rifles an they really have no chance of fighting back. But then take that colonization feeling and combine it with 20th century techniques of rounding up populations into camps. The reality is that if aliens ever show up on Earth, we don't have much of a chance of doing anything other than what the aliens want us to do. BUT this map is only the first in a series of maps detailing how humans enter the wars in the stars. I'm thinking how the next map will describe a revolt on an alien slave ship and how the humans take over the ship. Which ultimately leads to the humans hijacking alien tech and forming a base somewhere in space and acting as pirates to all the races that show up near Earth. Eventually, the humans reclaim Earth from the colonial aliens and from there they begin their own Human Empire. So the map series is kind of a saga for humanity, I'm planning on 3 or 4 maps made by me then relinquishing any hold over the series that I have so if anyone who has a good space based idea can take the reins of the story and write a little chapter of the Colonization Wars... for example if a new mapmaker wants to do a map on an alien invasion of NY that is part of the Colonization Wars story, then it's all his. So if you like space wars and have ideas for maps, feel free to jump in.
Also I'm a Miss, thank-you
