Road Hex:
- No Attack or Defense Modifiers
- Movement Cost: Soft/Hard=2, Air/Amph=3

City Hex:
- Attack Modifier: Soft:-2, Hard:-4
- Defense Modifier: Soft:-6, Hard:-2
- Movement Cost: Soft:4, Hard/Amph:6, Air:3
- Genetates Income (different value than base)
- Does not produce units

These would give us maps with good urban warfare, without new units appearing in the middle of the fight.
The road would add the possibility of lightning breakthroughs, adding new strategies to block & defend roads.
Having the possibility of unit production separate from income generation would add many map design options.

I'd like to see roads.

Having terrain that vary on the two variables of income generation and unit production has been suggested [on Tangler]. +1 for that idea. I think having only the existing multi-purpose base degrades the game.

Rather than the unrealistic att/def boosts on roads, you'd think they would give a movement boost to anything with wheels.

Why just wheels? In general it's easier to move on roads be it on a bicycle or on foot. If wheeled vehicles get a movement boost then so should bipeds. Naturally, the advantage to wheeled vehicles over foot on roads would be greater.

Why are you proposing air units get a boost on roads???

+1 for both ideas. But yea, why do air units get a boost on roads?

In my opinion, the more terrain the better. Just not too many that it will leave you hours planning your next move...that's just not fun

@matt538 & ShadowPanther: Not sure what you mean by air getting a road boost. I suggested a cost of 3 which is the same for air on all hexes!

@Lucian: Not sure what you mean by "unrealistic att/def boosts on roads". I suggested "No Attack or Defense Modifiers"


If you feel the +1 hex boost for infantry is extreme, assume they use trucks on the road.

My main reason is to give map designers a way to get things moving on larger maps.

May be there could be a negative defense modifier for infantry on road to reflect their use of trucks?

This would balance the road advantage with risk. So you unload infantry away from the front, and march into combat.

I think the minefield terrain could be a really fun one... If the code was written so that when a unit was on a minefield and was attacked the result could be that it sustained no damage or massive damage, hehehe a roll of the dice...: )~

Only for units that come in direct contact with the roads. As aircraft don't (unless you want to drive planes along the ground which would be pointless because it would be a sitting duck) it wouldn't make sense for planes to get a movement increase on roads.

I'm just proposing common sense. It's easier for me to walk on pavement than it is on sand, dense forest etc etc. That's a fact, plain and simple.

Yeah, it really hurts if you step on a mine.
