There will be some guards at the airport....but i am thinking that the final objective might have to be a plane (as this is where the story ends) after wiping out some other germa planes on the ground...plus the control tower.

i've seen the movie description, and now looking forward to seeing the movie.

the idea is very interesting, in any case we need more objective games.

i'll be back with more comments after i see the movie :wink:

how about if u can only attack forward? except on a few places of course, cause then if everybody started near each other then the first person to start might try and take out the opposition

Bryguy...yes the start is still mixed up but that will need to be the case so that everyone deosn't try to take each other out early in the map.

I will admit that it's much improved. I was actually thinking about one ways. Perhaps way up the trail should be an option to choose which way to go. One would take you to the objective while another would take you to the beginning to eliminate the other players.

There definitely needs to be multiple paths to get to the objective because one player could pretty effectively "clog-up" a single path.

As another suggestion (maybe not for this map), the map could be shaped like 8 thoughts with the objective in the middle. Players could start on the outside, but a map of that style would allow for borders to attack each other rather than purely going through neutrals to the objective.

I don't have a problem with a map that is effectively objective only.

We added them partially for such a possibility. Or so I believe. The trick is making sure we keep strategy involved. All luck would be terrible.

your army circles look too sporadic to me. It kinda makes it look messy.

Subject: Title Change

I changed the title of this as you can see. Schloss Adler is the name used in the original version of this story, so simply making it Der Schloss (The Castle) seems appropriate.

Any further ideas would be welcome.

Soldaten Schlafzimmer - Soldatenschlafzimmer
Essen Zimmer - Essenszimmer better Speisezimmer or Speiseraum
Munition Zimmer - better Munitionsraum

I think we need more territory division like there is in the bottom right or maybe a dotted line connection in the circles too and from the bottom right to the upper right and in the upper left castle.

Is the cable-car one-way? If not the whole 'track' of cars, then at least the Kontrol rooms/gates could be, to keep some sort of momentum/fluidity.

ie:

Kontrol 1 -> Up Car 1
Up Car 8 -> Kontrol 2
Kontrol 2 -> Kontrol 3
Kontrol 3 -> Down Car 1
Down Car 8 -> Kontrol 4
Kontrol 4 -> Kontrol 1

i wasn't planning on adding any routes to the cablecar, but certainly the castle needs divisions, i just havn't got there yet. :)
