Map Ideas

Post by nimrod7 » Sat Jun 06, 2009 9:21 am

Hi guys. I've seen a couple of threads started where luxers state what maps they would like to see. How about a central thread "sticky" where someone can throw out a map they want to see?

Space Maps

Post by yi3artist » Mon Jun 08, 2009 3:15 pm

I'd like to see another map in the style of "Earth vs Mars", but on the moons of Jupiter or Saturn or both. The map design is very pretty and the country shapes are well-chosen for space, the terrestrial bodies, and the starship fleets.

Seeing as the map is from Sillysoft, may I also suggest that the starship icons be considered as a launch pad for "Space" army pictures? Just "Space" army pictures alone would spice up those hex maps (A black field with colored hexagons never really gives me the feeling of space).

Hi Suntzu. Have you seen the winter games thread? We could use a bob sleigh, figure skating, skeleton, opening/closing ceremony etc. map.

Dustin may need some help :wink: with the Vancouver map...

Paris Arrondissements,
Rome and the Vatican,
Venice Canals,
London upon Thames
Red Moscow,

I am considering a map looking at the siege of Constantinople in 1453 that ended the Byzantine Empire and saw the Ottoman empire say 'thanks but no thanks' to Christendom. By some historian's book it marks the end of the middle ages... an interesting moment possibly worth a look at?

I know there's a Byzantine map LF did recently but this will be a siege map just looking at the city and it's fortifications.

Hope it hasn't already been done - if not i think i'll get to it.

That's a great idea Behemoth! The city of Constantinople has a very interesting layout.

What about a map based on a progression of musical notes? Like the sheet music of a song, each note a country. Just throwing the idea out there for you map-makers.

I actually tried to come up with several ideas along this theme, but they were either uninteresting to play (very linear), or required fluent knowledge of music theory. :smt102

I just had a thought on how to do this so I may give it a go. After all, you can never have too many map projects.

I was really surprised not to see a well made popular map of the greatest conflict which ever took place so I decided to start working on it - WW II The Russian Front. The war between the Russians and the Germans, also know as The Eastern Front or the German-Russo War.


Other map ideas (which I haven't completely confirmed if it has already been suggested or it already exist) are the Battle of Gettysburg, D-Day, Battle of the Bulge, the Colonization of America, Romance of the III Kingdoms (would have to be a different name due to copyright laws), Halo Wars Risk and Lord of the Rings Risk (again with different names),

I've done a "Romance of the three Kindoms", though it's not that spectacular.

Later on, I might re-make a ZOMBIES map of the United States which was a hit over at another site. There's basically a zombie stronghold in the center of the United States which gives a huge army bonus, and then there are multiple cities dotted over the USA for capture.

I was thinking a Gangs of London or Urban Warfare or something similar.

I made a prelim version but it is fugly and I am not artistic although it played pretty good. Got all the connections fixed, etc. But it def. needs help of someone with time/expertise.

I've been thinking of doing a pre-human history map.

Just now I stumbled across a Cretaceous Lux map while doing some research so I won't go there again.

Assuming a pre-cretaceous map hasn't already been done I was thinking the late Jurassic world had a interesting look to it - It's called the The Malm Epoch and would take us back a mere 161 to 146 million years.

The world was broken into two supercontinents back then, a northern Laurasia and a southern Gondwana. Sounds pretty simple huh - ideal for the large brainless lizards that stomped about back then and newbs trying to path the map in the present day.

Despite the Jurassic tag i'll be avoiding dinosaur references in this one.

Sure, the WIP looks a bit like a blob map but it plays quite well I think. I'll upload it as soon as they let me.

If anyone has seen Avatar yet, then a map of pandora, similar to classic, but obviously with the Navi territories. I did have a look for a map of this online. To no avail.

If anyone has any ideas, I might be able to try...

Make it easy enough for an "Underage Luxer", though! :shock:
