No I mean literally :D

But you are quite right. I try to soften the damage by not counting shipping price :lol:
And if it would only be the money.. it's the time as well!

Well I'm sure I've not been there but you may have fooled me yet. I note that the big grey line that looks like a road seems superimposed as it runs directly over some buildings. Also the landscape picture you included looks like a video game screen shot and that it may be a game that others of you play.

Westfield and you got me good on that one. :lol: I so want to play AAM on that map and so will Scub and Ace. Very cool buddy,well done :bow:

@Audacity - Its a excellent facsimile of a map we play on in world of Tanks online game and seeing it done as a google based hex map is pretty creative and cool.

Wooohooo bingo! :D

Well thank you. It's great map in WOT and I hate it because I always do something stupid and die because of it :D So I build it to practice offline :D I hope I will have it done this weekend.

@Audacity - eye of the eagle. You are correct. And will fix that road thank you ;)

I think thats a western Europe landscape - My first thought was Bastogne - but it does not fit

you were close
It's central Switzerland
https://maps.google.com/maps?q=zurich&h ... rland&z=15

the only place I could find that has
- high zoom resolution
- good colors. most are high contrast low color
- taken shots on summer
- have rolling hills, high cliffs, forests and villages
:D

Here it is, release candidate 1.

Some areas don't fill entire hex. I wanted to add some atmosphere and a degree of uncertainity. So,
- space with 3 open borders and space with undergrowth is considered to give partial cover (6+ on save) and vehicles can enter it automatically.

3 cliff spaces in the middle without inner border (M6 and 2 neighbours) are considered impassable. Upper left corner is impassable. I actually placed a plateau there as it is large unplayable area but removed it as it would probably give significant advantage to it's side (think artillery).

Any comments, ideas and criticism is welcomed :D

Looks good! What about center dots for LOS?
