For a draft you have all of the elements. :D But where are you going to take this?

Do not know if you have ever play this, but the style would look great with this map.

Nah, I'm going for a simple 80's theme with colors, and the little story on the top right. Along with the title in the font from that 80's cop show Miami Vice! Like koontz picked up on.

I feel like there should be some sort of yellow in the map...something like this:

Maybe change the color of the northernmost bonus zone to a color like that? Or the westernmost zone?

And it should be "Intracoastal Islands".

Miami Vice, all that pink and tight T-shirts. Adding a little art deco to round it all of and you might have something worth playing.

What are the impassables going to be?

Planning a little something more, and the impassables - once I get them to my liking - roads. At least I have where they are going for now.

Looks like it could be a decent small map. Look forward to seeing the development.

Thank you!! Name changed as suggested as it is Broward County.

Changes made:
    Added Roads are Impassable to the legend
    Added roads as impassables
    Changed Inter-coastal Islands to Intracoastal Islands
    Changed Greater Miami to Broward

That is it for now!!

isaiah, know this was just a small one as you are busy elsewhere but here is what I am thinking. You opening line in the thread and the map states...
Put on your parachute pants, hop in your Yugo, and crank up Gloria Estefan, because we're going to Miami!


But I am not getting this from the map itself. Are you planning to give it more flavour in style or even putting symbols on the map like Copenhagen? Something that says 80s Miami.

Does this say 80s Miami? What does a Yugo have to do with Miami?

That got me nothing nole. A-Team van, Magnums Ferrari, Delorian from BTTF, Batmobile and Kitt from knightrider. All famous cars, but what do they have to do with Yugo or Miami. Or did I miss something?

Well, I don't think there is a car that is specifically associated with Miami. But those cars I linked are famous cars from the 80's.

Well in the 80's people wore those silly things called parachute pants, some even drove those $3000 brand new cars called Yugo's, and Gloria Estefan is from Miami.

I will be adding in a couple background pics, when I can find some suitable public domain (that I don't have to pay for) ones.
