Cairns, the only pixelation I see in on the cow catchers on the locomotives. To me they are passable. One minor not is the bridge on the CP line isn't directly under the circle, so just move the bridge over to the left a tad bit It's minor thing, but I have no problems with anything else! *pushes the XML over to Gilligan to get done*

Oh, yikes, good call. :oops:

Here's a fix for that. I just created two separate objectives so you can distinguish them.

Hi isaiah40, yes i've looked at the cow catchers and locos and thay have bevel and emoss on them, apart from removing that altogether, i think it is OK also...makes them stadn out a bit.
The bridge has been centered.

          Beta - Quenching

---The development period has concluded for the Promontory Summit Map. The map has been tested and all objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Beta Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for BETA Play. After an extended period of time in BETA and once all quirks and issues have been resolved, the map will be put into Full Play (barring any Admins or Foundry Foreman vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

              Image


While the map is in BETA Play, there are a couple of administrative tasks that are required of the mapmaker(s) in addition to the initial gameplay testing:
    1. Please ensure that the first post of the thread contains all the necessary information to help future visitors to the development thread; it's particularly important to ensure the most recent images are there, along with any helpful guides (such as gameplay quirks/nuances or the location/size of any starting neutrals etc.)
    2. It is the responsibility of the mapmaker(s) to ensure that they respond to further feedback in a timely and constructive manner.
    3. Write a "creative" map description and send it to the Foundry Foreman via PM. You're encouraged to post it into the first post of the thread as well; the description will be used to populate the maps database.

Re: 1v1: Promontory Summit [6.11.13] BETA

Postby Foxglove on Fri Nov 15, 2013 11:51 am

I definitely like the concept of this map. :) And I have some game play comments to share (from the beta site)!

1. I feel like there are too many bonuses. I think there should be fewer, and that they should all (or mostly all) be off of the "main path" so that you have to make tactical choices about what to take or not.
2. I think 4 objective regions in the spikes are too many. One person needs to have a huge surplus of troops to hold 4 regions that can be attacked simultaneously from 1 opponent region. My game is a bit stalemated right now, because we're just building, building. I'm not sure how it will end.

Nice work!

How lucky you are to get to do Beta testing.
I'm the bloody mapmaker and i don't even get a look in :shock:
since Foxglove, IcePack, patrickaa317, and JaneAustin are the Beta team. Huh! how does that work?
Something definetely wrong there, 1st stage or not.

About the spikes, they are the essence of the game, and you'll not presuade me otherwise.
About the bonuses, they are off the main path since you have to conquer them and you can make a choice whether to or not.
What i'd like to know is...is the map worthy of 1v1 and the race status?

Re: Re: 1v1: Promontory Summit [6.11.13] BETA

Postby agentcom on Fri Nov 29, 2013 4:10 am

The map is highly prone to early dice. Early good dice and you can build up bonuses quickly and get even more bonuses. IF you wanted to solve this, you might want to space out the initial bonuses a little more (make them farther away). This would mean that for someone to gain a big advantage, they'd have to have more than 1 round of good dice.

For trench the "problem" is more interesting. You have to decide whether to go for the +2 right away or not because you're up against the killer neutral. This actually makes trench perhaps a little bit more "fair" or at least a little more strategic. But there's a separate potential problem for trench and that is the different spacing of the bombard region. Bottom player potentially has an advantage as his potential bonus is bigger prior to that region and may be able to just sit back and bombard the top player while using other autodeploys to keep increasing bonus before he reaches his killer neutral.

On the other hand, this map is supposed to be a "race" and in that sense, a quick start makes sense to provide one with a lead. I think you've done an impressive job at attempting some balance on this map while still making the two sides of the race a little bit different, unlike say St. Pats. I'm not sure if these things can be considered real "problems" in that regard. I think you may just have to put it out in full beta and look at (a) whether top or bottom has a decisive advantage in certain game types and (b) what the general feedback is.

I'd say if you see something like a particular setting leads to a win for bottom player 65% of the time or something like that, you know you gotta go back through and "rebalance" it. You'd want to do this for all games and then also for some specific settings like trench.

Thoughts from a Speed Game Limited, Parachute - but parachute is redundant since it is a straigth line (thanks Gilligan)

i think the first part of this game really reflects the building of this line...fast across the plains and slow in the mountains
I thought the bombard position could be located away from the start position, like Reno or Sidney

Gilligan: but perhaps it would be better to have it on a 1 auto instead of a 2 auto
Gilligan: what if you have start point bombard the bridge still, but have Prom Summit bombard the start point
Gilligan: it would give you a way to prevent the other player from losing your game
Gilligan: that way your fate isn't sealed upon your player, you have a hand in it
Gilligan: but anyway i will make a post monday.


Any feedback from this?

well, parachute would be okay with nukes or zombies. but we also agreed that zombie would be a game type to restrict on this map.

Because it could make for never-ending games as nearly the whole map is autodeploy.

I honestly do not see that as a problem. The auto before will take the next one in time. Might slow games to a crawl but that would be the risk players take when playing the map.

I feel that this map shows great promise but my one and only suggestion is that it is played with a round limit in play to prevent this being a never ending story ;)

I think that is best left as a player option...and if players go to the never-ending story...surely there must be a stage when one player will get complete advantage over the other. ;)

I also noticed that in one test game, it is indeed taking a while to get start from Sacremento.
This in fact, was not uncommon because of the need to gather supplies and get labour together.
While it is tedious, and i am particlarly finding it that way...yes i have captured Newcastle but getting those Govt. grants is proving very difficult...it is part of the gameplay and the decision made as per roll of dice.
Some players will not like it...but then some players will have always better luck than others, and there is nothing one can do to re-balance in that stake. :)

Why restrict this to non zombie games?


Because it could make for never-ending games as nearly the whole map is autodeploy.

I honestly do not see that as a problem. The auto before will take the next one in time. Might slow games to a crawl but that would be the risk players take when playing the map.


I agree. Zombies will introduce and element of randomness and luck that I think would be particularly fun on this map. Same reason people play doodle nukes, you can get really lucky or really screwed on such a small map.

With zombie spoils on this map, you'd want to really be careful plotting your advances and maybe not even advancing at all at first.

Oooohhhh .... I just thought of how crazy this would be with zombie trench!

I would NOT suggest limiting this to non-zombie games

So do players testing this map think it is relatively balanced ?
or do we need to adjust some neutrals ?

Get it into play first on the main site before any changes are made. So few games can never be an advert for change.
