Hello everyone! Recently I came up with a really nice idea, which will greatly improve the gameplay of the upcoming Armoured Brigade. And this feature is the ability to draw deployment (setup) zones on a map or in a separate image file, which will be loaded into the mission.
As it was stated by Veitikka: "A scenario can have a .bmp image file where the scenario designer can paint "no-go zones" to limit unit placement and movement." However, the deployment zones remain rectangular in their shape have fixed map position (north, south, east or west).
My proposal is to make deployment zones drawable either on a map itself (in the mission setup screen) or in a separate .bmp file. You may ask "why?" First of all, standard deployment zones create a lot of limitations for mission makers. For example, what if a player wants to create a small town besieged by enemy from from ALL the directions, or, maybe an ambush on the enemy convoy? In this case, a player may just draw deployment zones for A and B using shape he prefers more.
I hope that the game developers will like my proposal.
