Working on AP 17 made me wish we had some crag overlaysWe go through this all the time and new board lovers always can point to a number of things that have not yet appeared or are greatly underrepresented. In addition, one must consider the fact that much-utilized boards can grow stale over time.
And we would need a handful of scenarios using them.There are a lot of overlays we WISH were available (I can think of several). But until somebody puts forth the effort to create
them and persuade MMP that they are needed, wishing for them will have to suffice.
Steve Swann has stepped up with a promising scenario for these 2 boards already, I'll look to get it out sometime in the next subscription cycle for Dispatches. Nice job Steve!I need a scenario for this board in Dispatches in the next few issues, it screams take the village after fighting through some interesting country terrain and over that hill. If anyone comes up with one before we do I can help publish it.
"Scenario designers" and "MMP" are not mutually exclusive categories.Creating them is trivial. I think everyone can assume that pretty much anything can be made as an overlay. I don't think it's MMP's job, though, to make scenarios using them - isn't it up to scenario designers to do that, then submit them to MMP?
I have proposed this very idea (transparent overlays) several times here over the years.Now, printing overlays on a clear background... THAT is something that I think MMP needs to look into. If it's doable, then let designers know that the path is clear to create the product that uses them. If not, then that's worth knowing too. But a designer isn't going to do the technical printing work that MMP needs to know in order to make a call about making that product.
Where are my bridge overlays, d@mn!t!I have proposed this very idea (transparent overlays) several times here over the years.
The printing stuff is no rocket science - the company I worked for did this on standard ink-jet printers for Power Point presentations around 10 years ago.
My best guess it, that a TPP will overtake MMP in the making. Same with the RR overlays (station-kit, tunnel entrances, RR bridges, ...) which Steve Swann is currently working on.

Nice overlays!I went crazy (as is usual for me) and created sets of bridge overlays for all the river boards.
