Going to need to create 4 for each board to cover all facings, then there are the overlays

For multiple board sets load the first board
Adjust playing area to total size for all boards, 40x30 would be 4 boards.
Cut & paste the other boards to original board.
Done.

Dont remember playing many single board games, would need to get creative & while not perfect just add a couple of rows of impassable terrain.
Ah ! That's different, I thought the reference was to the 50 meter per hex coverage area.

Attached are two blank custom maps......they will be entered into the next SPWW2 upgrade using these Map numbers. One is a true 10x30 playing area ( I had to change the code to 12x32 to get the 10x30 playing area )and the other is 30x10 playing area. They can be customized and saved like normal maps.

The game will still restrict size as in the past but it will load and save these as well maintaining the current size so you can recreate a single board squad leader map now

This shows it with terrain added but the ones in the zip are blank green

For a custom map used in a sceanrio where everything can be placed manually the game will use these as normal....the reason the game controls will not be changed to allow this at will is there are too many subsystems for basic game functions.....like V-Hex placement for one....automatic unit deployment for another that would have to be tweaked and tested to make this generated game usable ...we thought 20x20 was "small enough" and even that has some occasional issues crop up due to it's size but for making a small unit custom sceanrio these will work well.

Enjoy....

FYI the map generator will work with these but you can't autogenerate 15 high mountains. There isn't the "room" for the map generator to do much but give basic terrain

Exclamation Re: Will there be a 2018 update?

This expands the set. I recall from early SL that there were games that could be set up on two or three maps set end to end so this set gives 6 blank maps that can be edited using the existing map editors:

10x30
30x10
10x60
60x10
10x90
90x10


any larger combinations can be recreated with the existing game code. All of these will appear in the WW2 upgrade that will be released this spring

Any thoughts on more "shots/reloads" for Tank countermeasures (trophy, etc)?

Fallout Re: Will there be a 2018 update?

Don and I had some discussion on this awhile back. I believe it to be in the MBT Thread. If I recall correctly the number we discussed was 4 or 6 shots.

Regards,
Pat

There has been no change to the number of countermeasure "shots"
