I'm sorry, about that. It's pretty stupid posting a thread with no maps in it in the Maps and Scenarios section, but unfortunately, I don't have any pictures at the moment. I'll work on getting some pics up as soon as I can. Again, any criticism or suggestions are appreciated.

My first map is called Tri Jungles. It is a 3-player map that utilizes one SotM and 1 TJ. Besides the variations in starting zones (some are mostly sand, some are half rock, etc.), it is exactly symmetrical. I've played two games on it, and neither of the games seemed to favor any specific unit or player. Action spread over most of the map, whether it be the starting zones, the hill in the middle, or the surrounding area of the hill. Here's the download.




The second map is a re-make of a classic: Highways and Dieways. If it's done before, forgive me, I just wanted to share my version of it. This map utilizes 1 RotV and 3 RttFF (mostly for line of sight blockers). Here's the download.

Any suggestions and criticism is welcome. Compliments are welcome, too!

Hope you all like my maps. I'll updating this thread pretty consistently, as soon as I feel I've playtested a map well enough. Thanks for checking!

Looking forward to more of your maps, I just think if you use jungle on a field it should be as packed as possible which may mean you will need to use another jungle set.

Though your suggestion is welcome (and the only suggestion, so far) I actually feel the opposite. Jungle should be spread out more, to provide extra defense to the maximum number of spaces. However, compacted Jungle probably looks more like a Jungle, and can be fun for a little bit of variety occasionally.

That's true, but it should also be used as a sight blocker so that range cannot fire at your figures in the first place. It can also be used so that movement is made harder which adds another aspect to the game.

That's true, too, but the Jungle had to be spread out for a few reasons, besides the one stated above:

1. It couldn't be next to the highest ground. Really high ground and another extra defense die at that, is simply too good a boost.

2. It couldn't be next to glyphs. Glyphs should simply be hard to hold!

And, I updated the first post with pictures, and placed it in a nicer format, to make it easier to read.

That's true but I didn't mean all of the jungle would be in a big blob, I meant that the jungle would be in groups of 2 or 3, but the field would need another jungle set.

I saw your other map too, I think it's very well built and I love the aspect of a big area of path.

I'm going to stop debating this, so I can get some more opinions on this thread. I'll try to get some games in, soon, on some other maps, so I can post them up, too.

You nailed it. That's the absolute key to creating really great maps. I know a few 'Scapers out there who post maps that they haven't even constructed in real life, let alone played on. I look forward to seeing what you come up with, Rednax.
