I wanted to create a map of Feudal Japan.
Since I am a perfectionist I put a lot of effort into research. That means correct names and locations of castles, cities and more or less their historic significance. Terrain of course, mountains and rivers, since they change the overall strategical situation. I even researched mountainpasses. I read so much about the period, that I planned to incorporate it all and that at the right location. Historical Mines, Ninja Fortresses as well as Ikko Ikki Warrior Monasteries. Wako Pirates and proper trade routes to kyushu, China and Korea. I even had / have proper ideas how to make all of that work in game terms.

But sadly there are certain limits, that I now have to work around and hopefully can make it work nonetheless.

I will give you a sneak peak, but none of it represents the final state of the map project:

make 2 maps: macro and micro? macro is the main map; then, when it is time to fight in the castles, those players create a new game with the micro map...it isn't an ideal solution, but maybe it could work...

Can't view them so can't comment.

Someone is a tad sensitive though I see. Just a bit overreactionary...

@Richard:

The links work for me...?

@myhandisonfire:

I'm not exactly sure why, but the auto-formatting of the forum doesn't seem to like multiple links in a row. If you add empty lines between them, all links (instead of every other) will be clickable:

http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=10162

http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=10655

http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=10809

(Tip for Firefox users: triple-click a non-link to select it, then right click and select "Open Link in New Tab". As long as the text you have selected contains a valid-looking address this will work.)

RvW, it was an issue with my internet connection at the time and not broken links (though two are broken for me).
