World 2.1 REVAMP?

Postby gimil on Tue Jun 21, 2011 6:02 pm

since I came back into the foundry I have been excited by the less restricting map sizes. This got me thinking is now a good time for the foundry to consider a REVAMP to World 2.1? It is a great playing map that is graphically sub standard and frankly to cramped in its current format. A REVAMP to this map would give a new lease of like to one of CC's most beloved maps.

What do you all think?
What do you know about map making, bitch?

I've actually thought of that recently. Instead of a revamp of 2.1, why a new World 3.0 where we can practically have every country included in a supersize version?

Yeah that is also something that interests me. But that doesn't mean that 2.1 doesn't need a revamp. A size increase so that sections of the map aren't so cramped would be great.

i agree with both of you even if i'm not a big fan of revamps. to be honest i'd be ok with world 2.1 getting just a simple straight forward resize.

A REVAMP might also make many angry, since it is one of the most beloved maps!

revamps should only be for unpopular or sub par graphics map. world 2.1 is one of the most played maps on the site and i wouldnt want a revamp on it.A supersize world 3.0 would be good to have but no 2.1 revamp.

One could argue that 2.1 is sub-par in graphics, or at the very least dated...

I mean, it has connections you can't see even on the large map... like Egypt-Levant, or Greece-Turkey...

We should gather 5 mapmakers, each draws 1 continent, and then stitch them together as a huge map...

Psh. That's what I was gonna do for Epic Epoch!

Anyway, in my opinion World 2.1 doesn't need a revamp. It's got a nice, clean look that's served well for years. Yes, it's simple, but simple isn't necessarily bad.

Anyone want to do this? Though I foresee a problem with the Copyright agreement. Someone will have to claim the copyright on it.
