I've been working on my first map for a while now and wanted to test the general idea of it b4 I continue. Its not at all a finished map, but a few test runs should make it clear if its worth continuing or not. I've run a few tests on the AI but the map idea require certain rules and you cant make the AI follow rules ... However I just noticed that someone more able have been working on a similar idea ;) http://warlight.net/Forum/Thread?ThreadID=5432
Anyway. If you are interested in running a testrun on this beta-beta map post here please.

Could this map help you?

I'd also like to apply for testing. Doesn't matter if it's beta-beta.

OK, first try wasnt really a success, but I had a new idea for the sea travel. Its kind of intermediate between Moros and Cephistokles systems. The sea is represented by a equally spaced grid of hex territories but you are allowed to attack / transfer up to three steps at a time. This allows for fast travel and give a possibillity to sneak ships behind enemy lines or travel around large stacks of ships.

Any comments or ideas for improvement?

I like that idea more than the original. It will be like hopscotch on steroids ;-)

The sea being hexes sounds like the best idea so far and it's original too.

Still working on the new sea, will post a link when I have something to preview. Urfang I'll invite you for the next test run, but it will probably take a week more to get it running for tests

I like the sea concept.
That is a lot of connections though.
I'll be happy to help test when it comes time.

Here is the promised preview. In the final version land territories will not be hexagonal ;)

I was working on the map as a test for the river travel system when I got the idea for the sea travel. Thus the focus on russia. Do you think the great russian lakes and Baltic sea will be enough to test the sea travel or should I add the north sea aswell?

We did a test run on the map already, and it turned out its a bit hard to tell the difference between land and sea visually. I'm working on an update where the sea territories are small cirkles over a background grid of hexes to show connections.

i had an idea for a map once you finish this one you take part of Europe like great Brittan Spain Portugal part of north Africa etc. then you have the east coast of America some of Canada central America and south America. this would be extremal popular with role playing players (which there are a a good amount of them)so if you or another map maker makes this it would rock

it would use the same concept of the sea but if you don't that's fine sorry for the double post

OK, on request a hex version:

http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=22501

If anyone have good detailed maps with old norse names of territories for naming they would be great. I only have a limited number of names in old norse atm. Maps with names in Icelandic would be ok too. Any other coments are also welcome, and I'll need a bunch of beta testers for when the naming is done...

This version is the best so far,invite me and when you are done you could make a smaller version of this map using less territories like 150-400 territories.
