koontz, sorry this is a negative one....
but i think the original version was far better than the graphics now...they are totally confusing and over the top and you have to search everywhere for bits and pieces.
This is, IMO, needs pulling right back.
Sorry, just my opinion.
cairns, which version are you saying to go back to? I think the only really new idea on this over the others is now the blood trails on the map for connections. Or do you mean the legend part of the image?
koontz V3 was much clearer for me to understand, but then it doesn't coinvey what you need on the map.
the current version has too many white background pieces going on in conjunction with what i percieve as light grey army shadows...combine that with the blood trails, and it becomes very confusing to examine.
I watched The Following last night for the first time - Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy (of Mark Anthony fame from Rome) - and it seems that your concept of "blood art" and Dr Joe Carroll's blood art is similarly aligned - no insult intended - but there is similarity and trying to read the legend with that blood all over the cards is a nightmare...perhaps that can be toned down a lot.
At present, i just find the whole map over-the-top and rather confusing to read - less is more...remember what we did to pull back Madrid.
I think part of the issue is also trying to read the room names which haven't been lifted from the grey background and aren't clear to identify.
