Re: Ch1can0īs Custom Maps - for 1 MS - New Map: Cool Walk

I got a chance to play on into the Shades at Shades's tournament, and it is a very fun map. The castle really doesn't give a big advantage to flyers like you would think, since my 10th reg were able ot scale the castle and clear it off pretty quickly. The road on the sides also saw a lot of play, as my oponent hunkered his Krav down, but even then it wasn't hard to take that area. Pretty much everywhere saw play, and the tides of battle swung constantly. No area was easy to keep, so you had to keep moving. I enjoyed it a lot.

I just thought I'd drop in and give you a huge thanks. Overlord is my favorite HS map. It's simply amazing. I'm sure it will be inducted into the BOV! thanks again and keep 'em coming.

...I say kill her off.
Yeah, but you say plenty of things, and how's that work? You're a bicycle!

After the first level, Overlord is cake.

I can't wait to sink my teeth into that new one you just displayed.

Re: Ch1can0īs Custom Maps - for 1 MS - New Map: Cool Walk

I gotta say Overlord has been one of my favorite maps to play on. The new one you posted though is looking extremely intriguing. As soon as you post the building instructions for it I plan to try it out. Keep up the good work. Your maps are awesome!

Re: Ch1can0īs Custom Maps - for 1 MS - New Map: Cool Walk

Cool Walk is one of those great roadless maps. I can see how figures will have to spread out wide wise on this map which is strategy inducing. Great map, Chicano. Cool.

Re: Ch1can0īs Custom Maps - for 1 MS - New Map: Cool Walk

Ch1can0, is there any way you can break down the thought process of how you design a map? I would love to know how the process plays out for you.

Things like: How you first see a map? Do you make revisions to maps as you design and are the changes based on game play? Stuff like that.

I hope thats not asking too much. Thanks!

Re: Ch1can0īs Custom Maps - for 1 MS - New Map: Cool Walk

thx all for the feedback, always appreciated

Hi Raudulfr Shieldcrusher,

thx for your interest! Its a creative process so itīs not easy to describe but i will try Itīs rare that i just begin to play around with the editor, normaly i have a basic idea then i start building a map. The basic idea can be some kind of landmark, a special structure or a special use of road tiles or anything else. so i try to start with some unique feature for the map

Like the pyramid




in Anubis




Or the main structure


in Battle Bridge




or this building




in the map Prison


Then comes the "clean up" step. I check if there are groups of smaller tiles i can replace by bigger tiles. So i have more small tiles left for details. As i build with limited amount of sets i mostly try to use all tiles available. I check if double hexfigures can reach/attack all hexes, check if melee units can move rather quickly trough the map. I use the error function of the editor, most of the time i playtest my maps before i finally post them here... Well, thatīs it.

My Maps for 1, 2 and 3+ Mastersets
