Quick Start Mech Bay Map
« on: 21 January 2023, 19:23:24 »
I know this is a long shot, and I should have asked sooner, but does anyone have a better version of the Mech Bay map from the Quick Start Rules?

Higher resolution, less to no artifacts. Clearer text. The map itself is fine, but the quality it is subpar.

Extracting it from the pdf, it looks like the only way to get what you want is to draw it from scratch, sorry...  :-\

I was afraid of that. So, after some typeface searching and a few min in photoshop, I was able to slightly clean it up. Mostly the text is cleaner (clearer?).

Yes, the text is MUCH clearer!  All I can offer on the graphic is a complete re-draw, but that would be mean pretty much NO detail.

An update no one was asking for...


I got the tiles to show up more clearly now.

Something that just struck me: the AsTech bunks work out if they're triple stacked (24 total to support 4 techs = 4 Full Tech Teams of 7), but the Security bunks don't.  As singles, you get a squad of 7 (including the commander).  Any stacking arrangement gives you an odd number of infantry.  Totally not your fault, but something that's going to bother me for a while...

The map is right.

Ah, TPTB wrote this before CampOps fixed AsTech support requirements.

First version, I had 0 astechs...
The solution is just ignore Paul.
