Many moons ago, i recall being asked to examine this map for a revamp, but because of size restrictions it was impossible.
I think that with new sizing limits it certainly could do with enlargement, but still retain the same colours, style.

If its not broken, don't fix it. There are other maps that need revamping. WWII Europe comes to mind but not 2.1. When someone joins CC plays 2.1 then plays on newer maps, they can gain a feel for how far CC has come along on the map making process and quality of maps.

If I remember correctly, the original map was drawn in vector graphics, so should be able to be upsized with ease.... All we need is somebody to trawl the original thread to see if the vector files are still available...

hm, maybe I was thinking of one by WM (probably, but not sure) where the map was a shit load of squares in a rectangular frame, but it was colored like the world map.

I would only be in favour of a revamp if the site decided to support three map sizes instead of two, with the new one being larger than the existing large. World 2.1 is big enough now.

I don't think the map needs much of a revamp, it just needs to be bigger so you can tell what you'r attacking. Europe and the Middle east, Central America as well, are hard to tell.
