I created a map for A&A Global 1940 2e to be printed on paper and played in the boardgame version of AA global 1940 2e. I based this map on an edited version of one of the TripleA global scenario maps, exported it, and edited it some more in Photoshop. It's gigantic, 94" x 40".
Am I allowed to give this map out freely to allow other to use it for similar purposes? I'd like to upload it to BGG and aa.org. I would be uploading a .png of the .psd file.
So long as this map/picture credits both "Bung" and myself ("Veqryn") for creating it originally, in big enough font for people to be able to easily read it,
And the this map/picture clearly says somewhere that it is from "TripleA", and it includes somewhere our website link: "triplea.sf.net"
then you have my permission to post it anywhere for people to download it and enjoy it freely
Here's a preview of my trial printout. I'll upload a final version after we play on it on March 9th. I believe it's complete but I'd like to play on it before uploading it to the public.
The playable map area shown in these pics is exactly 93" x 40.167". The paper is 7mil and is 94" x 40.75". The table it's on is 96 x 60". The small metallic looking rectangles around the perimeter of the map are magnets to keep the map flat. There's a large sheet of non-glare acrylic under the map that the map will be place under.
My overall impression of the printout exceeds my expectations. The colors are very vibrant and everything is very clear, even the little Sea Zone numbers. I'll list the changes I made to the original TripleA exported image when I upload the final version to BGG, and after I get a final okay from Vegryn (I'll send it to him first).
Sorry, the first pic came out very blurry. I'm not a good photographer.
