ha ha

i never noticed it says far east on the map. i know it by the name of asia and i assume most of the people that play this map also know it as asia.
so i think it would be best to keep the asia name and change the graphics to also show asia. this way people that want to play this map won't have to search for far east.

I'm not sure why this map would be called Far East. Sure, that's what the map says, but everyone knows it as Asia. I see no reason to not keep it as Asia.

just like any other map done backstage it probably won't pass through the foundry. however i hope at least the feedback posted here will be taken into account.

There was a bigger Asia map being put together a few months ago, covering a wider area, the 'true' extent of Asia - if that map makes a comeback in the foundry, or another similar, then it would be good for this one to be the 'Far East' .

IF that one comes back it can be called asia 2.0 or extended asia or something else.

Good point. All revamps should go through the foundry.

We're always told that "seasonal" maps get a pass from the foundry process because they aren't playable all the time, and the admin "doesn't want to spoil the surprise" or whatever, but this is a map that is in the regular circulation, it shouldn't get any special treatment just because it's the foundry foreman doing the revamp.


On another note, why is Kazakhstan abbreviated on the map? There's plenty of room for the full territory name. Abbreviations should only be used when the full name can't comfortably fit on the map.

ah.. well that makes sense for seasonal maps i guess, even tho some are just ugly as hell... but for other revamps in the past were they awarded an entire website shout out like this one? is it just for the name change? It just seems like all of this could be done in the graphic section of the foundry is all... no offense to nobodies of course but the revamp on this one looks too simple to just pass right threw, it deserves a better revamp then just making the colors stand out more on the map itself and some name changes, why not revamp the graphics all together? change the mountain, get that goofy looking dragon and compass out of there and replace it with a eye refreshing background? Hope so.

I think another asia is too much. Don't forget there is a nice Euro-asia map coming out that looks really nice :)

This is false, this map was developed outside the foundry process, that's why we used a different way to fix the issues. This one is not a revamp! Damn it's so hard to understand?

Let me state this clear for the last time. This topic is not about a map revamp.The person who decides about the future and any possible modification on this map is lackattack and he is fine about the map as it is now. When and where in the world the owner of a site can't decide what he wants to do with his own map? :roll:
Maybe natty has bought the site and i don't know this? :-s
This map is not going to be revamped, that's why Andy called this touch up.
I only fixed the issues that people raised through the years like few borders and other issues raised with eTickets.
I'm open to change the chinese names obviously but I'm not going to make any other graphics changes.
The abbreviation on kazakhstan was suggested just for consistency, for me it can be written on the map...i don't care.

Anyway, maybe Andy didn't write a clear first topic: the purpose of this topic is just decide the title name.

If you don't like the map, please tell me clear and I'll be happy to bin it in 20 seconds and you will have the old version for other 6 years before someone else is able to convince lackattack to improve the map but not change it.

Now this version is better than the current one? Yes, so decided the title. No, let me know and i bin it.

EDIT: I'm not going to receive medals or premiums for this, it was done just to give you something better than what we have now. It seems I was wrong. :(

np, it's fine I know I can draw this map 1000 times better, but it's not the target of what i did. The map is not supposed to change, if you want a better asia map you can draw one yourself. The rules were set before I started to work on this one and I'm not going to change them now.
The changes were done without having a psd file, but just a flat png, so you can understand that redraw everything again will be an hell and also (and more important) this is not what was asked to me. What you all are asking is anew asia map....then you're able to do that starting a your own project. ;)

Settle down, man. No need to be so defensive. I think a valid point was raised, all you had to do was give a reasonable response.

thenobodies80 wrote:This map is not going to be revamped, that's why Andy called this touch up.


Semantics... Revamp, touch-up, what's the difference?

Anyway, no need to get upset about it. I think you know where I stand on those "seasonal" maps and their free pass through the foundry... you maybe disagree with me, that's fine. And my opinion probably doesn't weigh much anyway, what do I know etc. But you should know it gives many mapmakers a bad taste in the mouth, when they see maps made outside the foundry process, behind closed doors, when they themselves have to work within the process.

So, yeah, this may not be the same thing, but you've already brought this thread to the foundry, and then you say things like "this topic is not for giving feedback to the map images, it's for deciding the name only"... If any other mapmaker anywhere else in the foundry were to present a map image, then tell everyone "I won't take any feedback except for deciding the name of the map" do you think you'd be likely to stamp that map?

Basically, all I'm saying is: I get that you have to work within the limitations lackattack & other admins place on you, and I'm not blaming you for it. But things like these nonetheless bring impressions that the mapmaking process is not the same for everyone. I do wish that revamps (or "touch-ups") like these could be handled within the foundry process, but if that's not something you can help in this case... well, too bad, shit happens I guess?

Anyway, I said my piece, hope you don't take it the wrong way, I don't want this to become any kind of pissing contest or whatever... for the record, if it's a choice between the current images and the "touched-up" ones, by all means get the "touch-up" uploaded, it's still an improvement to the current ones.

I'm totally against those maps and I said this to Andy, specially if at least CAs aren't aware about the development. I asked to Andy to not have again maps like that. And if possible to limit seasonl maps to the bone.
Said that in this topic we're discussing a different thing (the title of a map) and what we're discussing now is totally off topic.
In any case you talk like I'm outside the process, I'm also a mapmaker and I developed and I'm developing maps passing through the foundry hell, like everyone else.
I know what it means and I know what you're trying to say. Just it's not the case of this map (Asia or Far east)

natty_dread wrote:Semantics... Revamp, touch-up, what's the difference?


A revamp is when you change the whole graphics, a touch up is when you fix the issues without giving the map a total different styel/graphics/theme, etc etc.
RJBeals Brazil was a revamp, my Asia is a touch up....you can clearly see teh old map in the current one.

Yes it is in this way and it's in this way just for two maps: Asia and USA, the first two maps of this site.
