View Full Version : Map a land at war
01-31-2011, 11:12 AM
I don't if someone has posted an idea like this before but how we have a comp base around maps depicting a land currently at war. It should show things like the movements of various armies and generals, sites of historical or noteworthy battles and field camps/bases. It can set during any age like fantasy, blackpowder, modern, futuristic hell I would love see if anyone who can be depict a battlemap like this that takes place in space across multiple planets. It could be at any reasonable scale, nothing too huge.
Just an idea, what do people think?

I think it's a great idea.

Great idea, indeed!

We did a battle challenge once but it was more on a small skirmish scale about and I think the General won it; not sure, been a while. A full nations-at-war kind of thing would be doable.

It was a siege map challenge, and I did win (my one and only), but only barely IIRC.

I think it was a tie! Wasn't it Sap and the General?

According to Immolate's Mapping Challenge Hall of Fame! (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?12971-Mapping-Challenge-Hall-of-Fame&p=138222&viewfull=1#post138222) Steel General and Bohunk were co-winners in the December 2008 challenge ;)

Definitly voted yes. This matches with the theme of the world some of maps are starting to build.

This is an awesome idea. I actually wanted to try something like this; if it's for a Challenge, even better.
sounds like a cool challenge... I vote AYE

I created just such a map just this morning, more or less by accident, so I voted yes.
