you could make the men in faided military gear ( so it didnt stand out too much)..some clutching helmets etc....

As well allied military gear , also include the japense who suffered greatly as well!!!

Mmmm, ok i get where you're coming from.
Um, i had thought of that, but decided against it.
I thought it would be too "not politically correct" or too in ones face.
I wanted to make the body shapes into rocks in the river rather then dead corpses. I'd feel uncomfortable if i made a map that deliberately placed en emphasis on fighting over clear dead bodies in military uniforms.
Do u get my dirft.
If this becomes an issue, then I do have an alternative map in mind that is more based on the railway itself.

V2 Update

Postby cairnswk on Tue Aug 07, 2007 6:26 am

Well, I don't know if this is an improvement or not.
the effect trying to be achieved is broad-brush niaive artwork on the rocks and river. The river needs more treatment.
But for now, this is version 2 with new font more in the oriental style.

Bonuses are a long way off yet.

I think you need to finish a map before you start others.

Are you people seriously discussing corpses to play on???
Even to a mass murderer like me that sounds sick.

Cairnswk, I usually like your ideas, but this one doesn't do anything for me. I think there are better projects you can start up than this.

Thanks Andy. :)
I dont think the idea of Bridge on the River Kwai is the problem, it's the reminder that what everyone is doing here is actually waging war on each other, and that my idea of reminding people about what war produces i.e. dead bodies is too close to home.
Even I just looked at the artwork i produced ( after a big sleep) and I must say it is a tad real. Still I like the fact that I have achieved this objective.

So rather than destroy a good subject matter, I will rework the map to something that everyone won't be reminded about and they can continue attacking each other.

Bamboo Jack Plan B coming up soon. :D

Even when such maps that are started don't produce any comments and people don't bother to go there to comment? I have one map up for comment and nobody has been there to discuss anything on it for over a week now. So why can't i start another map?

unriggable, i could produce several map ideas in the time that it takes this forum to quench one.

and please don't tell me when i should or shouldn't post a map. :wink:

Yes it is sick, isn't it? jasnostj. People don't like reminders about what war produces. :)

Hulmey, thanks for your "realist" support. :)
As to the difference between this and Sydney, yes it's very clear, but both are very different styles of artwork.
The bridge will still be there in the alternate version that I produce.

I know this map isn't emphasizing the blood and the death of war, but I still don't see any appeal in conquering neither rocks in a river nor dead bodies.

Preview V3

Postby cairnswk on Sun Aug 19, 2007 5:38 pm

Well, after much thought and re-design, I have started creating the map below as the new version of Bamboo Jack.

Please, don't go bezerk with comments yet, this is only in its infancy, but it will give you an idea where it is heading, and yes it is still alive.

I will continue to update this image as this new image progresses towards something more substantial. When it is finished to a reasonable stage, I will post a completed version V4.
