I am looking for map makers for the following continents/areas:
1. North America
2. South America
3. Africa
4. Australia/Southeast Asia?
5. other? make a suggestion

I am planning to release the maps on Android and iPhone first. They will be later available on AO III.

What I need
:
- someone to email me the names, flags and colors of the empires (can reuse the ones from current AO). Make the flags 16x11px in PNG format. For the empire color, send me the color as a HEX string, e.g. #FF0000 for red.
- someone to draw & link provinces, borders in map editor etc.
- someone to create at least 5 scenarios (ancient/medieval)
- 2-3 MIDI & MP3 files for each scenario (Travis can help?)

What I provide
:
- the map image plus provinces
- the map editor program (it's different from the current the AO map editor)
- the map image including the already drawn out border lines (it's a map of the corresponding continent/area)

Let me know if you are interested? I would prefer someone with map making experience and interest to create scenarios for that Asia map.

Anyhow, this is paid. I am offering US$80 total per map (paid via PayPal). I am looking for 1 map maker per map. Please apply now :kg:

The map editor program that you will provide. Does it require to run on a particular machine or operating system? If it can run on a Mac. I would be interested in making one of the maps. If I can choose, I'll take North America. Thanks in advance.

Sounds good! If no one else volunteers, I guess it would be up to you to deliver the other maps as well :kg:

You got it fodder! North America is yours :kg:

Yes, the map editor should run fine on a Mac. If you are able to run AO, you should be able to run the new editor! The editor is somewhat in an unfinished state though; i.e. everything works, it just doesn't look very polished.

@fodder: email me the names, flags and colors of the empires (can reuse the ones from current AO). Make the flags 16x11px in PNG format. For the empire color, send me the color as a HEX string, e.g. #FF0000 for red.

Also, you might want to consider the empires to use for the 5+ scenarios you have to create. Look up historical maps etc.

Once I get the empires, I'll add them to the map editor and send it back to you :-)

Yes, the new map editor works under Linux!

I'll try to start on it within the next few days. Do you have an ETA on when you want everything done?

I need Asia very soon (Bio?), then also North America!

There are not time constraints for South America, Africa or Australia, so you are good!

Oh great, I picked the pressure map. :headbash:
I'll start researching various scenarios and names later tonight. Regarding the map scenarios on Android and iPhone, are these to be multi-players or single player scenarios? Also is there a limit to the number of kingdoms in a given scenario. What I'm asking is should it be busy with kingdoms or spartan or does it not matter?
Sorry I don't have Android or iPhone to see what is expected. :-(

Chris, if I want to bounce ideas or ask you questions, do you prefer I post them here or send you email?

Thanks in advance.

The scenarios are pretty much the same as for AO II. Between 4 and 40 empires is probably feasible. Create some standard scenarios with 4, 8, 16 and 32 starting empires and also some special ones. E.g. for Europe we have "Punic Wars" and "Ancient Empires" scenarios etc.

My other plan for AO III is map clusters! Rather than having single maps, it will be possible to group them. E.g. a world map cluster will contain all the major continents Europe, Asia, Americas etc. Then additionally the full world map containing everything...
