I think all the map makers on here should put together a list of the maps theyre working on, and what maps theyd like to see. This way the warlight community gets to see what they have to look forward too, and the members of the map making community can support eachother.


Links are optional, but give a short description, maybe a size of the map, and general strategies you would think players could have on it.


I can compile a list of everyones' projects in the next post, and ill post what im working on in the third. When a map youve mentioned on here is published, post about it so it can get crossed off the list.

Right now im working on a zelda map, https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=38062 .

It's based off the original game's overworld with each 'screen' being a territory. Bonuses would be caves, dungeons, and items hidden throughout with basic -1 bonuses grouping sections together.

The most useful thing you've ever done on this forum.

I'm making two last maps:
•Medieval Britannia - currently at alpha testing stage. https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=41753

•Europe 1939 (WW2) aka Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Currently beginning made.

I'm beginning to work on a map of the Ancient World, from Sinæ (China) to Britannia, so that includes places such as Persia, Assyria, Egypt, India and so on. However, it's been suggested that I make a Second World War map of the whole world instead, so I've asked on that Discussion thread to see if there's a big demand to switch.

I don't want to post the link just yet, I'll put it on its own thread first and then you can put it on here too.

By the way, this marks the end of any real development on the Thirty Years' War map. It's complete apart from a few missing territory connections.

I'm very close to completing a Game of Thrones map.

It's larger than any of the other maps with over 1000 territories and consists of only the continent of Westeros. A few test games have been made of small sections of the map.

i'm not sure what to name it but i'm thinking 'The Great map of Westeros' at the moment.

Another map im working is called 'Sphere Grid', its the leveling map from final fantasy x(10). I hit a bit of a snag and might have to abandon it, but im still trying to make it work. https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=38882


A map id like to see is something from James Bond, but an actual map, maybe London.

I'm working on two maps at the moment. I briefly put 'The Battle of Stalingrad' on hold (https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=41173) to complete a small map on a battle during the Vietnam War (I'll post the link when it's further along). Stalingrad was huge and I have to scale it down... maybe it will be a good 2v2 or 3v3 map. The Vietnam one is called 'La Drang Valley' and it is a small 1v1. Both of them are from an isometric view and I am a perfectionist when it comes to making them look pretty so it will be a while before they're completed.

I'm working on a Chrono Trigger map (https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=41740). It's my first map, but I'm going to take my time with it to make sure it's balanced and looks nice (I'm not an artist!). I'm still just getting used to the tools though.

There are 6 ages which serve as superbonuses and are only connected to each other via a few time portals per age. Each individual portal links directly just to one other, but The Epoch (time machine) is connected to all of them. The Epoch has a large negative bonus value (current estimate: -15), so it will probably only be beneficial to use it mid to late game. I expect The Epoch to be used mainly to stage a large surprise attack or to devastate the whole map quickly when you already have a huge advantage. Abandon, gift, and blockade cards make this element particularly interesting, so I'll have to play test it with various settings.

I think my biggest challenges are as follows:
- Making the portals visible and straightforward concerning how they connect. My initial approach is to make them large and color coded. I also plan to add explanation text to the map, but I know that too much of that tends to detract from visual appeal.
- Eliminating much of the linear nature of a video-game-style map, while keeping and leveraging some of it (such as the portal mechanism) to create clear strategic borders.
- Generally staying true to the nature of the original game without compromising playability
- Map look and feel. As I mentioned, I'm not an artist, but I *hope* to learn some vector graphic tricks to make simple map decorations which won't beef up the download size. I also don't want players to feel frustrated concerning the best/fastest path from Point A to Point B.

My aim is for uniqueness of play without being written off as gimmicky. The map is targeted at 3v3 play, but my current territory density suggests there will only be about 120 territories in the final map.

tbh, i dont think we need more game of thrones maps. It seems we already have every combination of size and complexity, and a lot of people groan when they see a new one made.

I am doing a map based on the 3 kingdoms period in China. I think it will have about 1000 territories although I am not sure yet.

I know your joking Chris but if I hadn't seen your Pangea map I would have made basically the same map. I had already gathered the source material for old Pangea when I seen you were already doing one so I switched off to future Pangea.

So you should just show me so I can be sure my current project isn't too close. I'll show you mine if you show me yours.

I'm working on the map of the Four Corners of Civilization, the world of Kvothe, The Kingkiller Chronicle, created by Patrick Rothfuss.

I am testing it and I already have a few things for improving it.
