I'm talking to a printer about making a full color booklete of hi-resolution game maps.

Anyone else want one? The price will be $20-ish, maybe less if I order a bunch at one time.

first to vote.. neat idea

The propellor is just a big fan to keep the pilot cool.. when it stops you can see
the pilot start sweating!

A good landing is one you can walk away from...A great landing is one where they can use the plane again afterwards!!!

Scratch the description...

Try spiral bound, full color, laminated pages (so dry-erase markers will wipe off and you can spill your beer/coffee/tea/whatever on it without worries).

Still discussing pricing though.

Now that sounds cool. Will it possibly be updated as new maps are released?

I think that could be done.

Perhaps a binder would be better.

great idea baldie!

I printed off those made by the 777 sqdn (I think) and covered them with plastic (mac-tac).
I think spiral binding is a good idea (so that the map in use can lie flat) but I wonder if it is "booklet" size if it will not be too "zoomed in".
In any case, I'd be ready to spend about 20$ for a set of plastified colour maps.

The images will be full-resolution, so there will be no loss. They layout will be like an atlas.

I am thinking the binder idea is not good... it wont lie flat, and 1C hasn't released hi-res images of the new maps, so i'd say it is safe to assume that they won't be doing so soon.

An alternative might be to do posters, rather than an atlas, since those would be considerably cheaper (per poster, more expensive if you wanted all of them).

I'm still researching. I'll post more details when I have more to post.
