Historically, 5/7 and 5/8 have been Rook bases not Bishop. Take a look at Baltic.

Understood, but you are redoing things right?  :devil

True, but those bases were where some of the best battles happened. The new update has risen to 40 bases per country, up from the 23 bases per country in Baltic. The actual hard part on this new map, is getting 40 bases dispersed for the Knights as they have the smallest land mass. I also intend to put multiple spawn points into all bases.

This has always been my all time favorite map. I think itís in the group that crates the best parity.

One small note I always thought the 53/51/P59 bases were a bit too close compared to the other two islands. However the other islands do have more bases closer.
Back in 2022 after a loooooong break from 2010. Old name Ratpack, same for the BBS.

Squad I did the most tours with were the Excaliburs then The 172nd Rabid Dogs. Still trying to talk Illigaf, Coola, Oldman22, and Joecrow into coming back instead of being boring old farts!

I like the original (Baltic) of this map as well, the only problem being the steep hills. This version is based and actual geographical data, thus the steep hills are greatly reduced. I have also added additional bases and ports, along with a Battle Ship for each country.

The 51/53/59 proximity are dictated by the CV/BB port 101. I'll take another look at that and see if I can improve the layout.

Are the high alt bases sticking around?

I plan on making the 163 bases high altitude, 3k to 5k. Most of the other bases will be generally lower. I am always open to suggestions, recommendations, or request. I am after the same thing as everyone else, good game play.

IIRC, the general altitude of the map terrain is less than 3k. Not to say we can't increase that if needed.

Being am amateur on this map stuff,ÖWhat catches my eye is in the north. The green bases intruding into the blue country, the only spot that happens. The only wide front line. Which, at first glance its where the most fighting will happen, AC and GVs.

It could be just a symmetrical issue we my eyes. But thatís my first impression.
