Great game. Very versatile. I'm really enjoying it.
I'd love to see it get a graphical update and maybe a few gameplay tweaks and updates and so forth.
I don't know how many people would purchase such an update/re-release but I would certainly do it.
Kudos to the developers.
I tried to make it versatile, so I'm glad that part is successful. As for the graphics, I talked a little about it in the 'ConqNotes' document, basically my first go at modding graphics so a very rookie effort. Thanks to Rodia for providing the inspiration I got from viewing his Peloponnesian War graphics set. My effort is nowhere as good as that. Tweaks and updates are ok, if you let me know what you are thinking I may implement them.
And, we're not selling anything here. The only thing Richard Berg ever got out of me was the few sheckles that AH/SPI gave him for all his hard work. But when I look at so many of the old boardgames I can't help but try and squeeze some of them into TOAW so that I can play them without setting up the original on the desk, which is quick to incur the wrath of Mrs. sPzAbt, and the curiosity of sPzKitty.
I was real happy with the way the Carrack and Galleon icons turned out. Of course, the equipment icons on the left are wrong, but I can't fit a big ship like that into that little space.
