Somehow, I don't think that a 5000x5000 map will be well-enjoyed by many players.

You could scale it down a lot. There's a map of Europe going around on MP, and a map of wesnoth would make more sense.

Somehow, I don't think that a single swordsman is fat enough to be the size of Weldyn.

okay this is what i have so far....

Image

on the main map it uses the same symbols for the areas i circled in YELLOW
but i thought the area in then north was a swamp and the SE was a
desert...i just want it to be right...incase i missed a thread or post that
explains classic wesnoth differently...

are the roads too much and should be left off?

now for the tricky part to make it playable....

castles and villages...

i'm thinking this map might hold 4 players...@ 33 X 50...if i keep it to a 3 space
castle.

weldyn of course gets a keep...but who else elensefar? and where?

there are only 10 places shown on the real map for what would be the
placement of villages in the game...but that wouldn't make it playable.

any suggestions?

well in general this map will have the same problems as a "europe-map", way too much scaled. its simply bad and no fun to play. there are no details, no fun - its simply lame.

my 2 pence for that topic

the map would need to be waaaaay bigger and for at least 8 players.
(and therefore also unplayable in general.)

else its just [censored]
and needs to be of much better design, its just boring


i mean seriously:
would you play a 4 player match on a cool map like castle-hopping island (for example) or on that pain of a map ?

think about it, and do something about it. some more trees in the northern region would be cool for example, think about the gameplay
The best bet is your own, good Taste.

Null made one such map; Aethaeryn started too but dropped it. Neither is posted on forums, i think.

you are so wrong. the 6p "europe-map" was a very fun (although unfair against italy ;) ) FFA map, in fact one of the most fun maps/scenarios i have ever played on wesnoth (and that is a lot).

Null's wesnoth map couldve been fun too, but it had 8 players, and first ones quitting triggered a chain reaction; imo having more than 6 players on any map is just unrealistic (unless you play it with people you know well, and can assure none will be noobs or quitters).

for better of for worse here is my first rendtion of the 4 player
wesnoth map you'll find in /core/images/maps...


the villages are not historic for the most part, there were not enough of them
located on the main map nor were they placed to make the game playable...

any constructive tweaks suggested would be helpful...

ideally it would be a team game with players 1 and 3 then 2 and 4 as allies..

I somehow came across a couple of threads in which a main map that your map might be great for depicted army movements but in which actual battle took place by generating a detail map of the hex the attacker is moving into. That material might help mollify those who object to a single figure occupying an entire city single-handedly. In storyline they wouldn't be single figures, the figures would be the leaders of armies. The threads were about multiuser scenarios, and allowed that you could end up moving more than one of your leaders into the same detail-map. The threads were a bit stale but not years ago. I'd already had such ideas so it was nice to see how much implementation had already been done of them. I'd been figuring on using Freeciv for strategic scale and only use Wesnoth for the detail maps but whatever. Unfortunately I killed the browser-tabs containing those threads so cannot provide URLs for them.

Keep up the good work!
