New Gettysburg Map - Shiloh

Post  Mr. Digby on Mon Jun 12, 2017 1:10 am

Potential to convert to Polish, Russian or N German plain type map?

Yes I think so. It's an adjustment in one of the logistics files.

The tepees are probably buildings that are part of the map itself, not two dimensional sprites like trees and bushes. That's the case with the C'ville maps. The map would have to be modded.

That's possible I suppose, but the tepees on the LBH map can be removed by an adjustment to map.csv.

A case of asking Crikey I guess.

The G'burg map might be worth converting for the WL game. It will be cluttered with wooden fences, but we can ignore those.

I had a quick sandbox game on it today and it has quite a different feel than the original. The vertical axis is more subdued so you don't get such extreme cartoony hills. Culps Hill for example is quite a low mound and the sharp ridges we know so well from the E Cav Field are all gone.

What the map does provide is lots of new terrain away from the actual battlefield and at 9mi sq you can have a nice corps vs corps fight in just one quadrant of it.

I've begun work on a proper command map. The battlefield is an improvement over the original versions. With the vertical component now at the true scale, the map looks much more realistic.

I finished the new G'burg command map and made changes to make it Napoleon friendly, (short people can see over the crops while on foot). I'll make a scenario using it for Sunday's game.
