Kingdom of Mars 2401 [Abandoned]

Postby hulmey on Sat Apr 28, 2007 3:07 pm

Im in the Region of Risk clan and we have decided to make a map that our clan can call a HOME map but that everyone will be able to play....

We have various splinter cells in our clan and every continent/kingdom is named after them... Then every clan member gets to choose a name for a country (hasnt been done as of yet )...

This map is going to the polls of our clan voting system so it is not finalised yet...

But due to my eagerness to recieve some kind of comments from the Map Foundry i have decided to display it here and get your feedback on it.

So any comments and suggestions would be nice..Also let your imagination run riot and lets see if we can get some original gameplay going

:) :)

still not for mars. there is nothing special, every territory is pretty much the same, no different colors to differenciate(i dont like the names there)

Great colour scheme...very well blended...think the sea needs changing from blue though....and names could be more mars - these are very earth names.

i could possible agree with the colours is the colours of the words where changed. they DEFINETLY do not match at all. Try using the eyedrop tool if your using photoshop and experiment with colors already on the map

Change "Loyalists" to something like "Region of Risk Fans" or "Jesus Freaks" or "Fish Club (we have to include them!)" and make a few continents with fewer territories, like the australia of mars.

MAKE THE ASA SMALLER! They aren't that big. Not like Spamalot 8) Anyways… You need some barriers. Maybe an impassable crater or cliff or something. The territories need to be different shapes to make territories easier to defend. Maybe a sea link or two. Maybe I'll fix it up a bit, to give you a better idea…

Okay, this is VERY crappy right now, but it can get better.

The S's (silos?) can attack each other, I added a sea link, changed the territories, and added barriers (white squiggles).

I like how you so fixed that up, Hecter. Very nice.

Quench. No, don't.

32 Territories.. I think you need more.

Anti-Spam needs to be smaller.

Colours are okayish. But the green on blue hurts my eyes.

I think a small map would be nice. The continent bonuses need to be changed though.

Spamalot - 5
Mafia - 4
Revolutionaries - 3
ASA - 2
Loyalists - 2

Skittles, Whats wrong with the fonts...There are many different ones...Could you be more specific...

Also the coloures represent a martian feel...If i change them i will lose that feel...Would it better if i dulled them a little?

Also what names do you want to change?

I dono.. I just feel like the 'Spamalot' font doesn't suit there.

Dulling the colours would be good, especially on the coast lines.

And where did the Loyalist come from? But I wasn't talking about that. I was talking about the names for the territories.
Maybe the closest one to the 'sea' in Spamalot could be Anthrax (The Spamalot Castle).
