Since i like to have as much as possible charts and maps in one (A3 size) layout i'm working on this all-in-one map.
it's based upon Koinsky's playmat but i wanted to include the 3 area maps as well.
to that map i found that longer patrols should have more chance of contact during transit so i added one transit zone for each starting port on the longer asignments.
i have aranged some of the ellements in groups so they are easier to find and use(in port at the top,combat to the left,damage at the bottom...).
i hope to have the map ready by next weekend.

Since i found the uploaded map too large to be fun i made a new all in one(on one A3,200gr. laminated paper) playmat today.all counters fit their outlined places,exept those on the navgation map;these are just a little to small but still work fine.next to the board i added Lt.Cdr. P.Dempsey's(just a random name) 5 first mission reports,for me the first time on Silent Victory.

Hey Yves,

Awesome work! I am stunned at the amount of work, and really like how you got Pearl and Australia bases on the same map in a workable setup. Nicely done!
Why didn't we think of this? LOL.

Cheers,
Greg

Seriously good work, well impressed.

Also like the Reports, I am sure my forum colleagues from Subron 9 would like a nice streamlined report to complete after their patrol, rather than the one I created.

Nice one Yves


For the OCD amongst us, can you spot the mistake on the First Report.
