HOMEWORLDS - BATTLE ROYALE
Mapmaker: Dolomite13
Number of Players: 20 (Possibly 40)
Number of Territories: 256 map locations
Special Features: Battle Royale, Over-Sized, Conditional Borders, Autodeploy, One Way Borders, Bombardment.
What Makes This Map Worthy of Being Made: I don't know if there is another Battle Royale style map in the works however I feel that space conquest would make a great setting and with only 22 players it keeps the game a bit smaller than the 40 person battle royale.

157 map locations.
94 homeworld/starbase/hypergate/research.

Nebula
- Nebula sectors are impassible
- Nebula sectors are Killer 5

Wormholes
- Wormhole sectors are impassible
- Wormhole sectors are adjacent
- Wormhole sectors are killer 5

Bonuses
- Any 3 system sectors or space sectors grant +1 bonus
- Homewords +1 bonus each

Nebulon
- Nebulons Homeworld is bonus 5
- Nebulons system sector killer 5 per turn
- Nebulons system sector may assault any wormhole when you have a hypergate there
- Alien artifact bonus is double when you control nebulons research

General
- Homeworlds are adjacent to their own system sector, starbase, hypergate, and research
- Starbases may bombard and be bombarded by their system sector

Researches (All bonuses are cumulative)
1 - Improved Sensors: Starbases may bombard regular sectors up to a range of 1 (provided conditional bombardments are implemented. Otherwise will become standard)
2 - Terraforming: Each homeworld grants a +1 deployable bonus.
3 - Hyper Jump: Each system sector where you control the hypergate may assault other system sectors up to 2 away.
4 - Improved Sensors: You may assault wormhole sectors (they are no longer impassible)
5 - Clone Facility: Each starbase grants a +1 deployable bonus.
6 - Alien Artifact: You are granted +6 deployable bonus every turn.
7- Improved Sensors: You may assault nebula sectors (they are no longer impassible)
8 - Terraforming: Each homeworld grants a +1 deployable bonus.
9 - Hyper Jump: Each system sector where you control the hypergate may assault other system sectors up to 4 away.
10 - Clone Facility: Each starbase grants a +1 deployable bonus.
11 - Improved Sensors: Each system sector where you control the hypergate may assault wormhole sectors up to 4 away.
12 - Alien Artifact: You are granted +12 deployable bonus every turn.
15 - Hyper Jump: Each system sector where you control the hypergate may assault other system sectors up to 6 away.
16 - Terraforming: Each homeworld grants a +1 deployable bonus.
18 - Alien Artifact: You are granted +18 deployable bonus every turn.

I like it, however isn't it gonna be a lot harder to kill anyone in contrast to the last battle royale? I love that you won't die in the first round though.

It might seem that way. This map would probably start slow, possibly with people making alliances for their survival. I would expect a bloodbath around turn 4 or 5 and then the game to settle down into a regular game of CC once 2/3 of the players were eliminated. At least thats my thoughts on it thus far.

Why limit this to a battle royale map? Seems like it could work as a regular map.

If dolomite decides to apply for having it as BR map, then the map must be just BR as per our guidelines.

I've sent a PM to dolomite and I'm waiting an aswer from him, in the meanwhile I move this map to the drafting room.

I have a 8 player sized version that is a bit different and could be part of a "Homeworlds" two part map series "Homeworlds: Battle Royale" for 26 players and "Homeworlds: Sector Space" for 2-8 players. In any case I was really wanting to try this as a Battle Royale map first and if it is rejected I will certainly rework it as a regular map.

Thanks for the feedback =)

Great work dolomite on the map concept, I've been patiently waiting for another space type map to show up for years. I personally don't think we have nearly enough of them. I hope you this map design goes through and I very much look forward to playing it during CC's next birthday bash next January :)

For what it's worth, I think it would pretty nifty if there were a couple more research like things added if possible, though I think what's there is great for a basic space conquest map. It woudl probably be a lot easier space wise to get a few extra researches into the 2-8 player version if you ever get around to designing that version, which I would encourage you to design to handle up to 12 players just in case they ever get around to supporting up to 12 players :)

Originally I had also added "Jump Gate" that let you assault a sector 4 hexes away (in straight line) from any homeworld sector that had that tech. And I was toring with "Mining" and adding asteroids to the map that would yield additional bonuses when you had mining. I was also looking at making the edge hexes of the nebula just hostile and -1 or -2 forces per turn but still having the core of the nebula impassible (I may still do this).

I like the Mining idea and had thought of it myself later last night. I think it would provide an interesting dimension to the game and allow for some more strategy. The Jump Gate idea I like as well, but wonder if removing the straight line restriction would make it more useful for some of the outlying homeworlds. The more central ones would fine a lot of use for it, since they could directly assault other homeworld sectors. Also, there's some homeworlds in the bottom right that would also gain that ability as well if the restriction was lifted. I think having the outlying regions of the nebula reduce troops would be another interesting feature, though I would consider raising the penalty to encourage people to go around when there's an option.

Looks pretty good, and if it gets approved for a BR map I would be very happy! Only having one map constantly in the BR section makes me not play BRs ever! lol
rds is awesome!

Good looking map!

Would be a nice map for up to 60 players, I think. I would like everyone to start with some extra terts and not just have a sea of neutrals. Made the appropriate selections in your poll.
