    Or you could look around in the CWBP and see if there's something in there you'd like to map.

    Post CC Map?

    Bryguy - why not create a Conquer Club styled regional map, just make it big!

    ** Someone please correct me if I'm wrong about this **


    uh... idk which book is my favorite, it takes me about 3 days to read any book... from 200 pages - 900 pages, it takes me 3 days, more than 900 takes more


    hmm...maybe one of the world from the Inkworld trilogy?? (Inkheart, Inkspell, Inkdeath (Inkhert is coming out as a movie on january 23! yay!) ) but Id have to find a map for it, as the maps in the front of the books are not that good....


    @--> Gamerprinter

    Huh, might be able to do that, but it would have to be one that I create (maybe a map in Risk Map form? with territories and bonuses and such?)

    Ive been working on a map for a challenge on Conquer Club, maybe something in that style...


    So many choices! Im horrible at making choices

    "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many things."

    What I was getting at with the CC thing is that many tokens are CC licensed like say Kimmos character tokens. I was just giving warning to everyone that some people would get funny about selling maps with those tokens on them even if you created the map yourself but used lots of 3rd party tokens. So just be mindful about what tokens your popping down on the map. If those tokens came with a package then check that they say that you can create commercial maps using them. I know of a few packages where thats true and not true but its not for me to stick my neck out and make that statement for anything other than mine. And for the record, tokens shipped with the box set for mine are ok, those from the web site download are CC so not ok. (Just to make life complicated !)

    For interest and since I use a lot of them... CGTextures can be used for free or commercially - BUT, it appears, not as CC (which I didn't realize)

    http://www.cgtextures.com/content.php?action=license

    http://www.cgtextures.com/content.php?action=faq

    so your safe to use these textures as long as the resulting image is not CC licensed it seems.

    I think the only time I would have a distinct CGTextures texture is in last months challenge entry but since I used the Dalek tokens too I wasn't going to send that to GP anyway. Weird and confusing all this licensing stuff. Hmm, gotta be careful with Ansium stuff then.

    Would 22 x 17 in be acceptable? (standard BattleTech map size)

    Post Yeah, I suppose...

    Yes, I can allow 17 x 22 maps as this is standard CBT sized maps. However, if you can handle 17 x 22, why not 18 x 24, there's hardly a difference in file size for that. I'd like to stick to a minimum size and not allow every size possible. If you're using Heavy Metal Map as your mapping program I can see the size limitation issue - but that's the only exception.

    18 x 24 is fine, i wasn't even thinking when I posted
    Worst case, I can throw a decorative border around the hexes that the neighboring maps can cover up (so it will blend in with other maps), but I don't think it will be a big deal.

    And I was planning on hand-made from Illustrator

    And thanks again for sponsoring this month

    [Edit] Change of plans: I think I'll make a full sized map to your original specs and have a "1-sheet-only" terrain setting.

    Oh and 36x24 is 180ft x 120ft if 1 inch = 5ft scale (or 1:60) to save you the trouble of doing the obvious first bit of math.
    That is so cool. Google really rocks.
