New Map - Help!

Postby Unit_2 on Thu Jan 27, 2022 12:35 am

Good evening all,

My name is Unit_2, I am a long-time vet of this game and have been playing since 2007 shortly after the game was launched. I've help make 3 maps in my time on the game, and now that I am back, I want to make another with the new skills I have. So, would anyone want to help me make this map or give me ideas on what the map could be on?

You're welcome to add and PM me if you'd like, let's get some discussion going!

As I PMed you I like to team with you
I like if I can make a simple classic style map for my country "Sri Lanka"
Also I have some other map ideas. But would like to start with a simple classic style one with no complex features.
.
I think I can help/work in XML .
But I am not good in graphics
.
Below are Sri Lanka province map and District Map.
I think it is good Provinces as bonus areas/continents and Districts as Territories

First I like to attempt to a simple map without much features such as auto deploy etc.
In Sri Lanka there are 25 Districts and 9 Provinces.
So I am thinking about a map with 25 territories which divided in to 9 bonus areas.
25 Territories are districts and 9 provinces are bonus areas
.
If it is too much simple them there are capitals for each 9 provinces. We can use those province capital also for bonuses.
Some thing like 1 troop for 4 capitals, 2 troops for 5 capitals etc ..
.
Then I like to try for Sri Lanka Railway Map. Some thing similar to Rail Africa, Rail USA etc rail Map series

[ https://www.conquerclub.com/static/maps/Rail_USA.S.jpg ]

After that I like to combine both maps in to a map like NYC map
[ https://www.conquerclub.com/static/maps/NYC.S.gif ]
Also there are some harbours and sea ports and airports around the island too. We can use them also for a Map
.
Apart from Sri Lanka maps I have some other map Ideas too such as a map based on human body.
What are your ideas ?
.
Railway network of Sri Lanka shown in image below ( There are some more limes not shown in image)

A few observations:

The Top (simpler) map reminds me of Madagascar; I am playing that map now.

I am also playing Fractured China and that too has a territory called Uva. Interesting.
