A while ago I was looking for a way to create my own large map of AA1942. I quickly found out that ImperiousLeader had arrived there already and was willing to share his map files. I think he did a great job.
Here’s his map : http://www.mediafire.com/?n3nwlmkwjlg
Alas, there was a problem. I didn’t like the way the map looked. ( nothing personal, IL). So after a few hours with Illustrator, I came up with a different version. I don’t claim that it’s “better” because as always beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.
There is a new plain version and a deluxe version. Your choice.
Here are some screenshots to compare :
(1 : IL’s map, 2: my plain map, 3: my deluxe map )
You can download them here :
( one page PDF )
http://rapidshare.com/files/311138785/AA42_DinA3_12Seiten_20mmOverlap.pdf 12 pages for printing them out in DIN A3 paper size.
http://rapidshare.com/files/311133277/DeluxeMapDinA3_v1.0.pdf Again 12 pages of DIN A3 paper size to be cut and glued on cardboard.
With these 12 pages you get a map size of approximately 140x70 cm. ( 55 x 27,5 inch)
And while I was on my way, I’ve redrawn the setup cards and decreased the file size.
Have fun. 8-)
