well ggg123 - they are good ideas, but making just one map is a huge undertaking, not something u just do in a forthnight. (except for Hoodlum who just seems too spew them out).

Hi Farspaceplace, yes i understand, im not proposing to make them all, just 1. But i need to garner interest, so far one for cuba. I dont think these posts get so much traffic to indicate the interest. The site could do a running survey where evermonth month or couple of months they pitch 3 ideas for people to vote on.

Actually as i understand it, then you can just get started. Any idea is basically fine (mostly). You prob know this already, but there is a guide to how to sort get the process underway somewhere. Its just to present some rough drafts in a new forum and the other mapmakers will come with their ideas and other input. So u can work on any idea u like, maybe check out the Bretancourt Manor - it might be something like that u are thinking about for a cuban conflict map, just in larger scale? Anyways good luck w it.

And interest will likely come when its starts to get underway - but most will prob not even know about it until (if) it gets done. So dont worry about people not responding know. Admittedly its a little loose subject to just ask "hey would u guys like a map of this or that". So dont worry bout that i d say.

@ggg123 it's good to see your suggestions and interest in potentially making a map for the site :) You should definitely be aware that making maps for this site will require many many hours and a quality end-product. It is not an undertaking for the faint-hearted! But, if you are fully committed to it, you can definitely take it on! Make sure to fully read the first post of this thread before making your decision.

From your suggestions, I feel that Cuba and Algiers are the best suggestions, since they are landscape in orientation and therefore fit better on a screen. Vietnam would be very interesting but would require lots of scrolling if it was made into a risk map (not good).

Perhaps a reason why there haven't been many responses to your suggestions is because other priorities are taking precedence, namely optimising the server and eliminating the few bugs that still remain. Since we have a huge array of maps already, map-making is not the number one priority. Having said that, if you would like to make a map you are more than welcome to do so, at which point further interest and support will definitely come :)

The web moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Seriously, that might be a good map to play on.
