    It appears he came online, but did not respond. Did you get any personal message Amidon?

     

    If that is a dead end, are we at an impasse?

    I did not.

    (btw - there have been some doubts as whether "last online" field is accurate or not)

    If I had the time and was better at graphics I would copy the board with a new look and create some scenarios. But I do not have either the time or skills.

    Certainly before you messaged him it said he had not been online in a long time.

     

    Perhaps I will look to creating a map.. I wonder how able the tools on this site are...I certainly have too much time currently!

    >> Right - my posting on the wall may have triggered that field

    Ok, so I just looked at the map and is really basic and should be pretty easy for me to do some stuff to graphically. Background, fog image, textruing and maybe try to add in some ants to the passages between the rooms. Might look gaudy, but I might be able to do it this weekend.

    If nothing else, basic improvements to the graphics would only take me a couple hours and I should have that. Motivation is another thing all together, so...

    I don't know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt

    It could definitely stand to have a graphical upgrade. I mean we've been playing on that board for like 15 years at this point. Our tools have come a long way.

    Do an inaugural tourney to get interest up, start a bunch of games, huge team battles etc and we'll try to just replace the old board entirely.

    I think it would be a good map for simulGear too!

    i can take a look at updating graphics for someone to do the rest...

    I'm a man.
    But I can change,
    if I have to,
    I guess...

    I started on this and got pretty far, but then came up with a fun idea that seems to work well. It's a nice little graphical twist that doesn't change the play, but if I'm going to do this, I want to do something neat. The problem is that it is tedious detail work, so it's going to take me some time.

    weathertop, if you come up with something and want to send me the file, I'll be happy to do all the boarders and stuff if you get done before me or if yours is just 100% better (which I expect to be true).

    holy shit, you're not wrong on the tedious. i'm about half-way thru reworking all the lines on the map as they have to be updated to have fill work correctly. yeesh.

    Risky (and others) - 

    I've finally finished with the tedious work. Now you can take it and add whatever flair you want. I've also got a couple different ideas thrown in.

    In the link below you'll find
    - the remastered original board broken into 3 files (org Board, orig Fill, orig Fog)
    - the remastered board with new background in 2 files (new Board, new Fog) - it uses the same fill as the original
    - a new take on the board with the 3 files (A2 Board, A2 Fill, A2 Fog)

    https://photos.app.goo.gl/pFX1mvRQXfK6BXmd8

    anyone with the link should be able to access, let me know if you can't.

    Hey All - did anyone end up making the changes? Looks like this thread is dead. My buddy CamelHand could get us something!

    i don't have admin privileges for the designer. there's only one or two others that have designer privileges.  

    i think we still have to address and answer the question of whether a change like this would affect current things (like rankings). Are we looking at adding a new map (in that case I can, once with scenarios that could then be added to as we want more; making sure to give credit to Red Baron) or are we adding a scenario (we've already mentioned issues with how that affects rankings, etc)?

    I've got the go-ahead to make a new board "Antastic!: Scenarios". Let's make a list of all the scenarios we want to make when I actually do it. In the meantime, I think this is a good place to start to flesh out our Designer's Round Table (I'll make a new thread for it).
