Awesome! I also designed a bigger version. It mixes all the expansions on the same board. Including hellas and elysium.


Also my group can't use this for various reasons, This is absolutely excellent craftsmanship. Respect!

Re: Terraforming Mars "Pathfinders" - full fan expansion FINAL 12.2018
Yeah there are. I'm still trying to figure a way to put those. I'm missing desert settler and polar explorer, which need some rework on the map. The other two as well I'll need to figure out where to put, Hoberlord and the one for titanium&energy.

Hopefully soon I'll finish the TR scale. Looking firwsrd to have this printed in March

its about $20 for the deck and $2 for the board, not including shipping costs.


Is there an easy/quick way to order that, you do you have to configure each individual card?

You have to configure each card but you can batch upload the images and it's actually pretty quick. I had no idea what I was doing and it took me about 10 minutes. Would have been quicker but I was trying to save a few bucks and didn't want to print the corps in a separate deck(we sleeve our corps in colors sleeves for easy identification) so I split all of them between the project cards and prelude cards.

Re: Terraforming Mars "Pathfinders" - full fan expansion FINAL 12.2018
took a longer look at it this afternoon, and its a really elegant map compared with my own mega version. I like using the elevation map rather than a basic map view. about the only detraction I can find is the oval shape, though I like it! the Oval will be nearly impossible to find a good board printer for I think, which is a shame.

Well, not exactly, this is a modified round monopoly i made couple of years ago based on the Monopoly Mega edition someone made here on BGG.

I had this print from a company that does advertising panels for a price around 40$, amd then i cut it with the angle grinder. Result is pretty good, and the dpi is great.

I'll use the same strategy with oval shape.

Re: Terraforming Mars "Pathfinders" - full fan expansion FINAL 12.2018
Alright! Here it is!

TERRAFORMING MARS GIGA EDITION

The idea came out since our games now usually end around generation 7 or 8, just too short, i think. Strategies don't develop as much and the game goes into rapid growth pretty fast.

So i made an entire new board three times the size of the original, which mixes Hellas and Elisyum expansion. It is supposed to be played with all the expansions, prelude included.

I also personally reworked the graphics on the Pathfinder expansion cards and i'm adding the editable files here so anyone can make his own translation. Cards are currently in italian, so if you need the italian version you already have it.

Dropbox link:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/39n7ldy9mv2647o/AACw2hskYmvCObOHu...

You will need:

1) Inkscape, a free software, will make you edit the files

2) to install the two fonts i have included

The board is still in development phase, so if you have ideas for modifications, just share. It also misses few achievements and milestones which i think were repetitive and didn't includ.

ENJOY

TERRAFORMING MARS GIGA EDITION




Cool idea and nice work!
We had a similar idea in our playgroup, to set a game and use all the three boards and two sets of cards and I'm very excited with your project.
Is this map play-tested?
Are there any special rules that you use when playing with this?
I see that you changed a great deal of the terrain and I'm curious how it works.

Some observations:
a) we can add 21 ocean tiles and I see that you have more then 50 spaces for them, that's a 30+ tiles difference. I'm afraid that it will be to much useless space.
b) also you doubled the steps for the oxygen and heat terraforming conditions and this seems right, cause we have plant and heat production so every player can raise temperature and plant greenery tiles with their production. At the other hand the oceans are all depended by cards and I believe that the 21 is pretty near the number that you add by using them. Of course there are the three cards that you can add one per generation, but I'm afraid that 21 are to much and they will drag the game. Also it will be pretty easy, for a player who wants the game to continue for more generations, to keep this cards out of the game and the players who want the game to end they will be forced to make multiple standard projects.
c) Desert settler and Polar explorer are absent. That's a shame, because in the game this areas have very few placement bonuses, but the milestone/award made them more appealing for the players to build at these regions of the map. Maybe you can add them by highlight the tiles that must be used for each one.

Anyway, I'm looking around for more info about your project and if you need some play testers or opinions I'l be happy to help.

Re: Terraforming Mars "Pathfinders" - full fan expansion FINAL 12.2018
HI!

Many thanks for the comments.

The map hasn't undergone play test yet, i posted it here mainly to get feedback and improve it. My first idea was only to re-designed the custom cards but i got inspired and made a new board as well

I'm looking for to have it printed soon as a graduation gift for my brother.

Yes, there are many ocean reserved areas. I made this with the idea of developing a custom expansion (around 50 cards) oriented towards project cards with a marine flavor, i already made few of those.

Regarding the missing milestones and achievements, i still have to figure out a way to mark the desert and polar tiles on the board and subsequently add the achievements tags, which i already designed.

Again, any comment will only be constructive.

Beautiful work! I really love the look.

Maybe marking the Hex edges of the polar and southern region with different color line, to note which hex is in the valid region.

Any chance of an English version?

You can follow the link. I left instructions on how to modify the text and make your own translation.

Card #21
The Polish version is not clear on this one. Do I get 1 titanium for either a city or a greenery tile or for each pair of those?

Looking at card #19 I think it's about getting 1 titanium for each pair of a city and a greenery tile.
If it would be 1 titanium for either a city or a greenery tile, the icons of a city and a greenery tile should be separated.
There's a need for editing text of that card.

I edited this card and there are 2 possibilities:

1. Edited pdf: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1v2ui_QwwV-fJUMl4bHKehJ_ZnM...
 


2. Edited pdf: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qPBlicUhAI6_KAKVAan5H9brOh...
 


In my opinion, the first option is what the author intended.

I also corrected the description of the Steelaris corporation's effect.

I've got info from author of the expansion that he won't give me editable files to make some correction but you can use files with Italian version made by Giulio Baldi (OmegaUba). He posted dropbox link to his editable files on the previous page . Unfortunately the corporation and prelude cards aren't included there.
