Dude, calm down. Some people like having a wide variety of maps to play on and personally I think the crossword map is a lot of fun and very innovative.

Surely your time could be better spent than attempting to crush creativeness in all its forms and glories. ;)

nobody is forcing you to play the new maps. You can only play the classic map if you would like. It doesnt affect you at all so there is no reason to complain.

Yea, you really can't argue with that. It's not hurting you any.

... I have to agree with the general flow of this thread - no such things as too many maps... however . . .

... We're seeing a lot of maps being proposed / put up, that are little more than lines and colors in the shape of some continent or region.

... That's not a slam on anybody in particular, just an observation. Let's all think textures, associated artwork (perhaps a minotaur for Ancient Greece - just a thought), and the like.

Yes I agree with the adding textures and things... I am going to make my Africa map look better by adding some things if lack feels like changing my map. lol. The more maps the better!

"Something that looks like it was designed in Microsoft Paint may not make the cut." - words of lack

Man, that Indochina map really sucks. How could lack approve it? It seems a Conquer Club version for players with an EGA / 16 colours video. I refuse to play it. About Crosswords... I really dont consider it a map.

Hey Marv, I heard a rumour that you're changing your profile name to FunTimeCharlie. Is that true?

I actually like the Indochina map. I think its kinda fun to play, very neat, and well put together. On the other hand I think the germany map looks really sloppy and bubbley... If you know what i mean. It just looks like the outside edges are bubbles... and all the borders are really sloppy... and then I think the middle east map is just lacking texture and creativity. But these are just my opinions. Please nobody take offence to these. If I wanted to offend you I would go into the flame wars!!

The inner depths of my soul dislikes the Indochina map. I can't stand it the way it currently is. Seems rather under par and unfinished. It has a chance to be a fun and playable map, but not in its current state.

The Middle East map is also another personal gripe of mine, it doesn't seem to mesh at all, and looks like it was created in about an hour and 10 minutes. I think a revamped version would be splendid; I know a few reworkings of maps are currently being developed.

The Germany map does seem a little 'bubbly', thouh I think it currently is much more playable than the Indochina map. All maps are a work in progress, I suspect many versions will be created of the current map selection.

It seems there is such haste to create a map and get it out there for people to play on. As this is nice, it doesn't seem very logical. I think a lot more time must be spent on many of the maps out there and of the maps currently being developed. Your first rough draft probably isn't going to be close to finished, though many seem to think only minor changes then are needed.
