I used to charge 18.99 and I'd get 1 dollar in store credit from cafepress, but I don't do it anymore. 17.99 alread is too much. Once I sold 20 maps I'd order myself my map and use the store credits.

In short, no. I get no money at all. It's all for love fo the game. I make plenty of money giving shots to kiddies and old people. :evil:

You’re all going to turn me into an egomaniac! On top of that I went from force sensitive to Jedi Council in one night! Perhaps I am the chosen one!

Well before I receive anymore praise, I have to say I made one small error in the center buildings with the red lines, but nothing too major and I fixed it already. I just need to upload the correct version on cafepress now.

Basically I didn’t mark the walls and columns completely correct, so technically its possible to walk through walls If you were going to really get technical.

I have to say how taken aback I am by the support. Hopefully my next few projects will be received as well!

I will send out my first requests for this map tonight, I’ve had 4 requests so far so keep’m coming!

Dude, seriously! It is that good of a map!

1) It is huge firendly. So many maps i have seen i absolutely love, but them not being huge firendly in jsut a couple choke points, kills their utilitarianism (Um...I hope that is a word?)

2) It is melee friendly. Again a huge plus as i am a Jedi player. I usually dont even run a shooter, so its nice to see a map that can let tehm run around.

3) Its shooter friendly. It is hard to be both, but from what i can tell there are going to be some wicked LOS shots in there.

4) Gambit - It is sealed off so shooters wont be able to tee off on gambit gainers. At the same time, The gambit area is not only spacious inside the walls, but there are several ways to enter it. Also Huges can get in there from several directions, which is great. Playing non-gambit, i can see some rather wild chases going on through the rooms and hallways along the edges.

5) I can see some seriously fun scenarios being written for this map with some wild running fire fights. A capture the flag scenario could be real fun.


1 Bad - It isnt DCI LEGAL!!!! We play a lot of DCI around here so it would be hard to get to use it, but for a map like this i would find ways to work it into gaming. Post when the final version is up at CP. This is a map i think i really want to get my hands on. I really hope to buy it.

This should be posted over on the wizo site (exclusive here i know), but it should be under the heading. Wizards take note: This is how you make maps!

You seriously need a job over there. Then we would get stunning map packs.

Great map, JC. I only have room in my budget to print off a select few custom maps and I'll definitely have to get this one. Looks great for game play and I've been dying to get a specific location for when my friends and I run Episode I themed squads. I just ordered a few maps from Cafepress a few weeks ago. Too bad it wasn't available then. I like to order them a few at a time so that I can save on shipping. Perhaps after I've completed FU...

Comparatively speaking, I think your Palpatine's Office looks nicer from an artistic point of view, but your Theed one looks to be a much better map overall. At least in terms of skirmishes, so it seems.

Anyways, I look forward to printing this one off eventually. Thanks for sharing with us and once again, great map! :)

I think you're talking about Sculley's map.

I'm sending out another "wave" of maps at the end of the day, I'll make sure you get one, NN.

If you want a holocron exclusive let me know :wink:

In regards to Scully's palp office. AWESOME Map, He uses Photoshop which is a little more advaanced then PaintShop, the program I use. I also believe he's a graphic artist. So naturally I think the art would be a step up from mine.

Oh, my mistake! Sorry, 'bout that. Sculley's map looks great, but it seems a bit tougher to use for skirmishes. Although he did include some special scenario rules to accompany the map, so that's cool.

Either way, your map is awesome, JC. It's next on my list of maps to print out. Hopefully we get some Episode I figures in '08 to play on it.

Hahaha, Fox was having a little fun there. :P

Did you email the map to me yet? I don't think I got an email. Etiher that or it might've got kicked to my junk folder and I didn't notice and accidentally deleted it. Could you try sending it to me again whenever you send out another round of emails? Thanks!

Boba,

You may be the first person to actually have the map. I haven’t even ordered mine of cafepress yet.

Therefore it falls on you to let us know how the map played, and if you found any flaws In the floor plan.

If you are still short on maps let me know. I know a guy who knows a guy.
:wink:
