Re: OEAO's Maps: Hive Lord

Really, your first map in 8 years?!

It's a looker! And a winner.

Well, I've certainly been involved in plenty of map thefts tweaks over the past couple of years, but this is my first original design since then!

Re: OEAO's Maps: Double Double

A few nights ago while tinkering with Hive Lord (I was trying something that didn't work), I discovered a new method to support tiles: stacking castle bases on top of each other (or the "double stack," as I've named it). Higher stacks might work, but I haven't tested them, and the use case for those would be extremely marginal.

The general rule I've found in my (admittedly limited) testing is that you can double stack castle bases so long as (1) you use straights and corners, not ends; (2) the same type of base in the exact same orientation is stacked; (3) the land tile that the bases supports is supported by at least one regular land tile as well; and (4) the supported land tile is connected to something (although this one just increased stability- it may not be necessary in all situations). These haven't been extensively tested outside the use cases in my new map, Double Double.

The overall use case is quite limited in scope (ladders often do a better job supporting, as they do in a few spaces in Double Double), as the more double stacks you use, the less bases you have available for normal support of tiles. Plus, you have to be covering a two-height gap.

Still, I'm happy with the discovery. And it's not often you're able to teach GameBear something.

Re: OEAO's Maps: Map Update Series

Now that’s a Fire Isles map I’d actually be happy/willing to play on. Great improvement imo.

Thanks! I tried to keep the original feel as much as possible while removing the abusable elements (the islands and the molten lava chasm). Oh, and of course, the unintuitive starting zone was a must-change for me.
