Is this an official go ahead? If so should i create a topic somewhere in the foundry to start this process off? Although i may wait for a complete draft before i actual post anything.

around 3 weeks ago. got back and started a new map :)

I have looked at this new map, it looks good, i will have to stop by at some point and give it a proper look over.

i'd rather see you use your talent to make a brand new map. however if the revamp means just minor touchups that would not take long then go for that first


I would hope to have a draft up by the end of the week and then depending on foundry speeds i might be able to start remaking all the models and things for a supersized castle battles so i have them ready when i move on to it.


Cheers sully, it is good to be back.

Well the way I see it, if it is your map, and all you're doing is improving the graphics, then you can do whatever you want. I believe that if you do then all you have to do is post the graphics in the original thread. I would say to pm thenobodies80 to let him know you posted a new image.

In my opinion, Tel, I think it would be more worth it to bring something new to the table, rather than putting a new skin on an old favorite. I'm with MrBenn on this - work on something new like Castle Battle. I'd certainly be willing to help you with the gameplay, if you'd like.

I will get on to castle battle soon, dont you worry, i would just quite like the maps i have made to be up to a standard im happy with. Not that i was unhappy with the graphics on drug war, i just always think if i had spent more time on it it could be loads better.

And your help with gameplay may well be called upon at a later stage. We will see

I wish every map maker would think that way... glad to see some older foundry peeps back as well, we have enjoyed playing on their maps in the past and its good to have you back.

As gimil said, it's your map :P

Avoid calling it a revamp, and you can continue with any graphical touch-ups in the original map thread ;) [/mod hat]

Let me know what you think

Cheers Tel.

If you want i can post a link to the file for you to have a look at though it is messy.

I've always been a fan of graphical quality. Personally, I'm more apt to lean to quality over quantity, so I think that going with a new look would be great. The Foundry isn't lacking on maps in progress (not that anyone should only revamp!), so I think taking time to redo some old favorites will help improve the overall quality of everything we have. I say go for it, the new stuff already looks great (I'm a big fan of perspective, though).

nice work. too bad most of the beauty is lost by taking this top-down approach :(

it's a lot of work doing every little model only to end up as a mere 10 coloured pixels on the final map.

the perspective view looks the best because it allows people to see more of your work. go with that.

Detail, :lol:
Dont worry i will save the detail for an actual 3D map, not a top down one, i just like using 3D programs as it saves a lot of thinking about about shadows and things.

Here is the level of detail there is:

not going to happen. unfortunately true 3d maps will never exist on this site. not as long as lack insists on not using flash.
4 years ago i started a 3d map. normally 4 years is a really long time when it comes to computers and internet and yet conquerclub hasn't evolved that much.

and it's too bad because you have some real skill with 3d modelling. =D>

By actual 3D maps i meant ones that are not seen from top-down, ie castle battle. It is a pity true 3D will never happen.
