Hmm...I can maybe do this, just need to finish school for this semester in order to reduce my workload.

Re: HoSS Wave 1 Map Contest

I'll send the news to the French forum... I'll possibly make a map !

A question: to submit a map, we have to post it here, or via MP ?

Re: HoSS Wave 1 Map Contest

Saw this bit of inspiration today for anyone thinking about what an Echo Base map could feature.

Everyone loves The Empire Strikes Back, so people will be interested in seeing a few sequences in this clip that didn’t make the movie. Harrison Ford actually narrates this early teaser for the film, which features Luke and Leia leaning in for an alternate version of their icky sibling kiss and C-3PO ripping off a warning sign. Neither scene is in the final film.

The C-3PO bit was part of a subplot during the attack on the Rebel base on Hoth. The sign is a warning that there’s a dangerous Wampa behind the door – so 3PO rips it off, hoping some Stormtroopers will run in there and meet their demise. Hilarious!

Having a 'Wampa holding cell' on an Echo Base map might be kind of cool. Then have a trigger (glyph?) somewhere on the map for unlocking the door and releasing a caged Wampa (independent unit that is not part of either army) on your opponent. Might be a bit too complicated to pull off but if someone wants to give it a try I'd be interested in seeing what you come up with.

Here is a nice map that could help for an Echo Base, in correlation with Yodaking's informations;

Re: HoSS Wave 1 Map Contest

I have all these grandiose plans in my head, but I'm worried about the requirement for realistic terrain requirements. Currently I'm working on something with 2 TT, 1 RttFF, and 1 FotA. Is that too much? Is it possible to bump it up to maybe 2 TT and 2 FotA, with no RttFF? Thanks.

Re: HoSS Wave 1 Map Contest

2 TT, 1 RttFF and 1 FOTA is alright with me. 2 or maybe even 3 FOTA's would also be fine.

We don't want to limit it to the 1 Master Set/1-2 Expansions rule that BoV maps use. At the same time, we don't want you to design a map that is awesome and covers the entire table, but which few people can build. Somewhere in between is the guideline.

Have fun with it, and we will provide some feedback to help make it better.

Thanks! I think I'll go with 2TT + 1RttFF + 2FotA.

Re: HoSS Wave 1 Map Contest

Well, this isn't my final submission, but I was just wondering what you guys think. 2TT + 1RttFF + 2FotA, all ice is slippery and all snow is normal.

Re: HoSS Wave 1 Map Contest

It is a pretty interesting concept. With the short corridor connecting the two start zones but covered in slippery ice and LOS is blocked by an ice rock. I'm only counting 23 start zone dots if you were going for 24. What do you need the RttFF set for? I'm not seeing anything distinctive being used from it.

Yeah, I know it's only 23. The shape was a bit more clean-looking without adding an extra dot on the edge, but I suppose that's just cosmetic. I can add an extra hex if it'd make it a more competition-ready map. Not that this would necessarily be played in any tournaments, but I'm shooting for something competitive.

The RttFF was just so I could get in some extra road pieces; the amount I needed to complete the map worked well with the amount in the set, so I figured it'd be better than saying you need THREE castle sets if you wouldn't be using the entire third set. For moving rules it's probably best if the road and wall walk spaces are used interchangeably, at least on this map, so then I guess you could say that the map either requires 2TT + 1RttFF + 2FotA, or 2TT + 3FotA.

Thanks for the feedback!
