Hahah! I like your thinking. We are on a giant rock hurtling through nothingness – north and south are simply figments of our imagination!

Is Igdigo supposed to be Indigo?

I am guessing artillery can only bombard the ships in the adjacent areas? This probably should be noted in the description somehow.

Glad someone is taking the time to try to get a new map launched!

Yep! My mistake. Thanks for spotting that.

You're absolutely right. That's a piece of potential confusion that I intend to fix by colour co-ordinating the regions of artillery and bombardments.

Thanks for your support!

You're absolutely right. That's a piece of potential confusion that I intend to fix by colour co-ordinating the regions of artillery and bombardments.

will u be differentiating the artillery and ships by making them three different colours, for example purple, red and orange, so that the purple, red and orange artillery can bombard only those ships which have explosion outlines of purple, red and orange respectively?

u've successfully replaced all of the french city names in france with non-french code names. similarly, on the uk side, replace nantes, whitby and york with code names that are both non-french and non-british.

Hi Ian!

Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate it.

I have changed the names below, and yes, that is how I plan to communicate the bombardments.

Are you able to help me troubleshoot the Map Maker? The army numbers are showing up properly, but the map inspect doesn't seem to be functioning – nothing happens when I hover over regions, and there is no information in the 'map inspect' section below the map. I would really appreciate any help could give me, as this is the only thing holding back progress on my end :)

is it because u don't have any small map coordinates? if so, then try making the small map coordinates identical to the large map coordinates, purely for the purpose of testing the xml.

Hi Ian,

Thanks again for your help. I put in different small coordinates for every territory and removed the <transform> tags (because I think I did that wrong), and the Map Maker says the XML is valid but the Map Inspect doesn't seem to work. Maybe I should check the XML manually? I also need to work out the <transform> tags to add the +2 Paratrooper autodeploy when held with the neighbouring Reinforcement.

If this doesn't get published it won't be down to my lack of effort. I check this thread pretty often even if I don't log in.


My biggest problem is getting the XML functional.

What exactly are you having trouble with? I know next to nothing; is this something I need experience or can some serious and massive googling/youtubing teach me enough to lend a hand?

do you still need assistance? but doesn't GP need to be stamped to avoid major overhauls of XML to avoid more work?

Hey Gilligan! Yes I still need assistance with XML! I believe you are correct, the GP stamp is necessary before XML for the reason you stated. However, given the current state of the foundry I didn't want to hold my breath for the GP stamp, and wanted to work on the XML in the mean time.

If you want to work through the issues I'm having with the XML (which are getting the Map Maker to work, and the <transform> tags to add the +2 Paratrooper autodeploy when held with the neighbouring Reinforcement) then I will happy to share co-credit for the map. It is still my goal to have this live on the website :D

I will not give up on this! I just haven't had the time to understand the XML.


Thanks everyone for your continued support and interest :!:

Hey Gilligan! Yes I still need assistance with XML! I believe you are correct, the GP stamp is necessary before XML for the reason you stated.

while the gp stamp is needed before the xml stamp, this does not prevent u from testing the xml on the beta site.

it seems that the map inspect tool works more reliably with smaller xml files. my specific suggestion here is to cut the map in half temporarily and use only the left side, eliminating all xml references to any region on the right side. obviously, keep a copy of the full xml before u do this. if the xml doesn't work, then remove the transform and try again.
