caps' maps - 5/11 This'l up for critique

I am entering R˙chean's Tournament Map Contest. Before I submit my maps I would like some feedback. Any thoughts? Suggestions? Both of these have been through a few revisions already, but no playtesting. They are due before midnight on the 14th of May.

5/10: Maps updated again.

Reset
Spoiler Alert!


As I was working on revising Reset, I came up with this. I still plan to release a revised BftU Reset, but I like this SotM version because I can actually build it (I still don't have any BftU terrain).

I love the map! I hope you continue to make and post good multiplayer maps. They are very hard to come across and build.

Well met!

The Gang of Four (under my auspices) has played a number of FFAs on Nadi's maps, although they may require too many terrain sets for you (https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?...12&output=html).

Otherwise, I'd suggest free building them. Read dok's series of blogs on map-making, as well as the various other articles/blogs on the subject. Also, I found rouby44's templates (http://www.heroscapers.com/community...ad.php?t=26898) extremely helpful.



When I fight in Delta+, it just feels right!

Thanks! I have built several, with varying degrees of symmetry. I have gotten better each time, so I feel that this is my best map, but when I get a chance I will try to post some of the others as well.

I have seen Nadi's spreadsheets, but as you say, they typically have too many terrain requirements.

Also, can anyone tell me how to upload .pdfs so that people can download my maps?

I'm going to enter R˙chean's map contest and would like some feedback. Reset and Helplessness Blues are the maps I plan to put forth. Let me know what you think!

Mm... I think I see what's going wrong. Are you able to share photos using google docs or do you upload them to image hosting sites?

EDIT: I replaced the broken images with links to their current home on google docs. I'll try to upload them elsewheres soon so that you don't have to click anywhere to see them.

Re: capsocrates' maps - Reset and Helplessness Blues -5/1/11

Reset looks like a lot of fun to play on, but it's pretty big for a tournament map. The build instructions list it at 35"x38" (and it doesn't look like that will change much by turning it) it won't fit on a lot of tables, and on tables it does fit on it won't leave a lot of room for cards, dice, rollers, or another map. You could probably squeeze the footprint down without changes the general feel of the map too much by tightening up all the level 1 24-hex plates in against each other, and chopping off the 5 hex "tail" from the start zones (that will also help bring the SZs a bit closer together, resulting in faster action).

I love the footprint of Helplessness Blues. I doubt that the corners beyond the glyphs will see much action, but I think that it's visually striking enough that it might be worth leaving the dead space. Any reason you went with fixed glyphs instead of random? There is also a tempting Raelin perch out from the left of each SZ-the level 5 1-hexxer 6 spaces out that covers the hill and glyph might tend to draw ranged pods to camp there.
