Maps in briefings not aligned north

Recommended Posts

See if you can figure it out.

 

Hint: it's not just for ****s and giggles.

The slot in the editor for the various pictures of the briefing maps has a specified maximum size and that size is not square but rather rectangular in shape, although it varies from briefing pic map to briefing pic map.  The pictures can run left to right for approximately twice as far as up and down IIRC.  With this limitation in mind, if your battle map is longer north to south than it is east to west and you don't rotate the picture for the briefing, then the briefing map will look squashed and will be less useful to the player.

This is why I try to make all my own game maps be horizontally long rectangles...

 

..but then in the TacMap I could just have north point downwards to appease the Australians?
