About the "new" pirate map...
Posted 10 December 2008 - 05:57 PM
Anyway what I can understand about these new sets are the "pirate" maps... They're from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade! They represent the road from the city with no name until the secret canyon where lies the grail, there's not even a bit of sea! I mean, TLC have allways released new map designs for its new lines (Adventurers or even Agents) and now, for the new pirates, where a map is such an essential element they give us the IJ map again that, in my opinion doesn't work at all.
What do you think?
Thanks for voting in my first poll!

By the way, I like the new map, but I think the older ones look more appropriate for the Pirates line.

Yea, the new one looks good with a lot of detail, but the old one actually looked like it could be for the pirates line...

The new printed map has a river and a couple of pondy areas but it doesn't really suggest the ocean-going life.
Still, it's OK I guess. It would have been nice to have a new print.

At one time, I made decals for a number of maps inspired by the Agents one, including some pirate-y variations. Here they are, if you missed them and want to print your own pirate maps.
The pics are thumbnails, click them for the full size images. These and all 2x2 designs I produce are meant to be printed to a size of 1.551cm x 1.551cm (which is roughly 835dpi at this resolution). Don't ask me why I work at 835dpi, I never meant to, but they print very nicely that way.
The first is the original, the second is just more colourful, the third is meant to symbolize El Dorado or any of the various golden city legends, and the last two are the more historically accurate 'plain' style that would look great when used with your Pirates/Conquistadors.
Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

It seems very few people really like the new maps, even if the majority is not unpleased with them (but prefer the old good ones). Well, I hope TLC will change this detail in the future pirate sets
And thanks too to the admin who put that two shots of the maps

It's what I've allways said...
But, for your information, there were a lot of pirates in the mediterranean sea and in the coasts of the actual Israel during a lot of centuries (since many centuries before JC until the XVIIIth I guess... ) What I want to say is that not for being pirates they must be caribbean
