    Did anyone here used to play on warfish?  They had a huge texas map that I can't find here.  Is it here under a different name?  If not, could some gracious board designer copy it here?  I think that would be a most awesome hordes map, too.

    Unbelievably, after all these years, I was actually able to log in and find it:

    The "LD" in the upper right corner is not part of the map.  I had to start a dummy game to get a copyable full-size map without players on it, and that's just my player listing.

    Looks a lot like a map of counties in Texas.  If there are any fears of stealing someone else's work, there are similar maps online that could be modified....

    The designer's username is/was FadeToOne.  I tried; you can't view his user page without logging in.  He last visited the site in 2010.  I would have posted his donate link, but the company hosting it no longer exists.

    That looks great!  Thank you so much!  How long 'til it goes live?

     

    (Am I allowed to say that it's not quite as pretty as the original, though, or would that insolent, impertinent and utterly rude comment get me banished?) :-)

    I think it's the jagged edges.  The original edges seem wider or smoother or something.  What I would do is use Ed's as the fill layer, and then draw over it with a smooth aliased brush to make a board layer.  I'd be happy to contribute if you want, but I also understand if you'd rather just wrap it up yourself.

    The main difference is the other board has colored lines, not black ones.  I can make it purdy.

    I just wanted to make sure it wasn't someone that was already here.

    He was here for a few months in 2010.  Long enough to port over the New York map.
