    What do you want to see in a map?

    Simple question: What kind of map would you like to play on?

    This is just a question an answer thread - let's not get wrapped up discussing one map idea, because if an idea is worthy of discussion it deserves its own thread. It's fine to be specific of as general as you like - we just want to know what our users want to play.

    I like the continent maps and am really looking forward to the release of the Africa, Australia and the Middle East maps. Also fond of 'concept' or 'time period' maps, such as the cold war Europe map. A WWII Pacific map would be really great (as an example), and other war-time 'theatre' maps. The Civil War, the Revolutionary War (a 13 colonies map, perhaps with the British fleet, Canadian provinces, and the western "Indian territories" as additional terts), maybe the Roman Empire.

    When a map loads up in 1000 pixel space
    A bunch of regions in yo' face. You get FUN.

    But any specific theme or region you would like to see big maps in?

    Now, this is the story all about how
    My life got flipped-turned upside down
    And I'd like to take a minute
    Just sit right there
    I'll tell you how I became the general of a site called MajCom

    (oh yeah it has to do with maps I guess?)

    I second Card's idea of concept/time period maps.

    Bump to bring this back to the front so that more see it (and respond, hopefully)

    I would like to see the 30 year war as a map. The main battle ground was what we today call Germany. However Germany at this time was split up into many small and more or less independent states, so the map should be very interesting with many territories and also many neighbouring states fighting for many different reasons and objectives beyond the religous one. Many things make this war interesting but more interesting in a development aspect for majcom might be that the armies had to be on the move, otherwise armies could not be paid or supplied and would slowly diminish. This made the armies move about trying to outmanoeuver each other so that enemy armies could be fought with superiority in both numbers and terrain. However this idea really calls for the development of same time game play.

    What makes a map outstanding to me is when it transports me to another time/place... I'm a General in the Civil War, a conquistador braving the central american swamps, a martian colonizing mars, etc. Also I like each map to have its own distinct flavor that requires some unique strategies specific to that map. For example, South America has the rivers. Twelve Domains and Mars map introduce one or two new rules. So rather than feeling like I am playing the same old game on a different map, it feels like I am playing a brand new game in which I already know the rules.

    Totally love what you guys are doing! YOUR MAPS ARE FREAKIN AWESOME!!!

    Here are some map idea/theme brainstorms (or farts):

    1.) Catacombs of Rome (or Vietnam War) with territories that connect via tunnels
    2.) Worldwide Panademic, with players representing different viruses/bacteria
    3.) Mob Wars, monopolies on certain contraband goods would lead to command bonuses
    4.) 13th century Venice with its unique blend of canals and bridges would make for an interesting map
    5.) Western Cowboy theme would be interesting, commands could be based on available grazing land
    6.) Pangea map with changing landscape (encroaching ice and/or volcanos that bleed away troops)... I especially like this idea (wink, wink)

    Whadda you guys think?
