This is a high funds map.

Walker points out that this map is more intended to be land/air, navy is really there
simply for variety. I'll simply provide warnings about a few navy units:
*Landers can only be used to save 1 newly deployed unit a few spaces worth of
movement....every 2 Days. This, understandably, is situational.
*Cruisers can only really load helicopters and I think resupply them. Since they become
easy to shoot down due to affordable Fighters, a useful way of toning down Kanbei, this is
pretty much moot. They can hit air units, though, so they provide protection for the
Battleships, but you can use AA Tanks or Fighters for that too.
*Submarines have no reachable valid targets, when they're pure combat units. Let me make
it clear if you can't guess from this: SUBMARINES ARE USELESS HERE!

So yeah, Landers and Cruisers are situational while Submarines are useless.

submarines make good meat shields for bships...
Master Knight DH (08/13/2011 09:42pm):
At 20000G. The same cost as a Fighter, incidentally. The Fighter covers the entire
movement of the Submarine and then some, and you have something that can, oh right,
attack. Stuff that is most likely to threaten the Battleship, no less.
Headphone (09/17/2011 02:55pm):
ah, but subs can't be attacked by enemy units on this map, hence why I said meat sheild.

Self-rated a 9. This is a really solid map.

Edit: Just kidding, FTA issues abound. Will be fixed when possible.

You would think that the armies would be TG and GE considering that they're both green
hues, thus would be the color of envy.

Silly Walker.
walkerboh01 (11/16/2011 02:22am):
GE and TG clash though Wes! That'd be like making my map AB/YC.
bohwalker (03/28/2012 04:40am):
Fixed the terrible FTA problems, and made the contested cities slightly less contestable. I also
caved and made it GE/TG, like wes wanted. I'm fairly pleased with the map for now.
