    I have a pretty cool idea for a MS Paint thread where you use a european map and be a country, and you attack a nation and it sorta drops down to Pixel-War (Picture-War, Paint-War.) whatever you call it. And you can use your tech sheet, etc. On various cities maps, like Paris, Berlin, London, etc. etc.

    A map like this.


    (Credit to the Wiki.Alternativehistory.com for this image.)


    I think it would play out in a whole new way then seen before, a little bit.


    So, I'm going to give this idea a try and see how it plays out.


    Application form:


    Country Name:
    Government Type:
    Government Leader:
    Capital City:
    Population:
    Tech: You're tech can range from cavemen to pretty much, 2012 era (I'm only saying 2012 to prevent God-mod with laser-nukes or some shit.)
    Army Sheet: (required, you may use your pixel-war sheet.)
    Land claim: (you may only claim 2 nations for your mega-nation, they must be bordering nations aswell.)

    Sounds like Picture War's Civilization gamemode on a larger scale. I also get some Piercing the Veil vibes from it.

    I like the idea, I wish I could sprite atleast halfway decently though.

    Spriting is pretty easy if you know how to shade properly and etc.

    Spriting is about depth and detail. It's not all about shading.

    Spriting is about shading, because to show depth and detail, you have to shade.

    Also this will probably die quickly, because as Calebc said its like a Civ. Civilization matches die because people get lazy. Also most people don't have a army on hand to represent a country.

    Country name: Serbian-Albanian union
    Type:Socialism
    Leader: Aleksandar Vukoner
    Capital city: Priština(3.000.000.000)
    Nukes: Almost
    Population: 95.000.000.000.000.000
    Tech: 2012 and counting
    Land claim:Serbia and Albania,along with the moon they managed to somehow terraform and made it into a farm only land(So much people means no space on Earth for farms)
    Pros:
    Apperently super strong military
    Superior tech to everyone and a well developed space program(they are now attempting to terraform Mars)
    Architects best in the world
    Terraform tech(they could make Sahara a rain forest and Amazon a wasteland if they wanted to)
    Cons:
    Military slow,direct to a fault
    Extremely inflexible
    Inprecise as fucking hell

    Army sheet:
    The only known military units are the basic sketches of an infantryman and an badly drawn sketch of a 300t super heavy tank with a missile pod. The country is keeping their military info very secret. Rumor has it that they managed to construct a tank that can be a submarine,boat,airplane and land vehicle.

    No offence IPK, but you seriously shouldn't take part in this. Your army sheet is pretty shit, and your Nation's pros seriously outweighs the cons. You own the fucking MOON. You have 90 Fucktillion People in your nation, and no one even has that Tech in THIS year, let alone the players even having anything after 2000 Tech.

    Current situation:Capital city population: 3.000.000
    Population:10.000.000
    They DON'T own the moon,but do have a tiny baby lab up there.
    But they do have some pretty outlandish stuff.

    Their shit is also somewhat of a mix between Steampunk,Brutalism,and cyberpunk
    No ethics at all,expect scare-bombs and crude dirty bombs

    WIP Serbian-Albanian union army sheet(with better detail!)


    The tank is the AV-A-1,a gigantic artillery cannon. The main turret is moved by 3 car engines,while the secondary rear turret is moved by 2. Since the main artillery is unprecise,a tiny artillery construct has been placed on top. It is used as a precision strike gun. While tanks don't present much of a threat from the front,thanks to the thick sloped armor and the spiked shape,the flat rear is the weak spot, but the engineers have made a defense:a big tank turret. Due to the expensiveness of the vehicle,only a few exist. There is a regular soldier there,for comparison,the soldiers usually are armed with an assault rifle or a high explosive rocket launcher that can switch to a underpowered mortar in a emergency.


    And don't worry,the union is not a war mongering nation,they know that being neutral gives big money,citizens are greedy narcissists because low and middle class doesn't exist.

    Actually it's a classless system. The government carefully watches all income,and divides it. Everyone has equal amount of money.

    Current WIP Union army sheet


    ZS-1A added

    The ZS-1A is a troop transport designed to be big,and carry troops and small tanks and vehicles. It has armor thicker than any known vehicle. The big cannon is not artillery as thought,it is actually a number of anti-air guns put in a big tube. The transport is very slow,but rivers and rugged terrain are no obstacle due to it's unique design.


    Also,good news:The Union is willing to sell their tech. For a price,the country must either join the union or sign a no war policy.

    Yeah except North Korea is in a technological dark age.

    Anyway, I don't know how we're going to format turns considering the OP was banned so I suppose we'll have to self regulate. Anyway.



    Wanting to expand it's territory and the glory of the communist party the GPRI begins looking for ripe land grabs. Setting it's sights on Southern Ireland it begins making a massive effort to subvert the government in place and get the people's backing for a communist revolution.

    Months pass and the efforts are going fairly well but not well enough, the governments of northern Ireland begin swiftly cracking down on any sort of revolutionary movement. The GPRI uses this to their advantage staging a massacre and puts all blame on local government.

    A large percentage of people have now began to back the communist revolutionaries turning it into a government vs the people battle. The GPRI sends troops to into southern Ireland under the promise of protecting the rights of the people. The GPRI government states clearly that once the oppressive Irish government is over thrown and a new stable government is put in place they will withdraw.

    TL:DR GPRI stations troops in Southern Ireland to ensure a successful communist revolution.

    Edited:

    Also I'm assuming we'll have battlefields only if two players attack each other, if not it'll be in the overworld?
