Hello I am NOXAS1 and me and a few others worked on the last community map. It was such and enjoyable experience that I would like to (With Wildfire games blessing of course) start a community project topic that will allow people to work together and make maps for new releases or map packs. As I said it was a lot of fun for me working with the community and I hope other people will enjoy it as much as I do.

He who is resistant to change is destined to perish-Danny McBride

Veni Vidi Vici- I came, I saw, I conquered

Pippin: I didn't think it would end this way.
Gandalf: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path... One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass... And then you see it.
Pippin: What? Gandalf?... See what?
Gandalf: White shores... and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.
Pippin: [smiling] Well, that isn't so bad.
Gandalf: [softly] No... No it isn't.

I guess I'm waiting for the ok first. If this idea is approved I would like to make a map of the places where the Norse came from or maybe a Britain map and pretend that the Saxon's (punny because that's my name) are invading or have an inter-tribal war? Any other ideas welcome.

I don't think you need anyone's blessing to do maps; I guess if the quality's there they will include it (with your blessing, actually ;) ).

How about doing something similar to the Verdon Gorge in south-eastern France?

You could build it so that the players can only navigate on the top layers, leaving the lower canyons uncrossable.

Ah, that's a nice idea. Like "Life Canyon" ;) (As opposed to Death Canyon which is set in a more arid climate I mean :) )

Great idea I think, so no movement between canyons what so ever?

The canyons don't have to span the entire map - each player starting position should be reachable by all other players.

Edit: For example you could have a large deep canyon in the middle (gray areas), but it can be walked around on the top layers (green):

That's just one idea, you guys should decide what you would like to work on :)

Ok it seems that I have no idea on how to start the canyon and I keep messing up. Any ideas to make it easier on me? Or instructions on how?

It's a perfect start, thank you for the head start. I shall do my best to get it like that picture (and still have good playability) I shall look up more pictures of that environment as well

If you make the gorge inaccessible, I recommend making the trees and other objects within it simple actors. :)I've done that a few times on maps where I've placed trees in inaccessible spots.

Ok I got a draft up on one corner of the gorge and added units for eye candy. Still not as good as Mythos with the units in battle pics ;) still I hope to hear some good ideas and criticism.
