Well, this morning we have 3 new maps to play: Brazil, Canada, and Europe.

If you find something wrong, or want comment, do a constructive criticism, hmm... this is the right place.

My first criticism, (and single one until now): small version of Europe map is smaller than it should be. The link:

Also, with the Europe map, the haze around the territory names needs to be got rid of.

2006-03-23 09:53:38 - Daz39: ok why can't moscow attack NW russia????

Those two regions appear to be adjacent but from what I gather Daz couldn't attack from one to the other.

Its a bit irretating to have to go all around Africa to take out Egypt when it clearly borders Israel

also - the Canadian map is just a mess - dont play it is my advice

Brazil looks fun though, just started playing it and so far so good :-)

Yes. it does look beautiful, but the xml needs a lot of going through to remove the (numerous) glitches...

The "bubbles" where the army numbers go.. I think they just mess with my head. They made my eyes go all wonky. And none of the groups of territories stay the same shade of color. I'm sure this was supposed to denote some kind of geographical change, but with some of the territories being so small and compact it makes it harder to tell what belongs to what.

I haven't the faintest idea how to fix these things though. :?

Grim could you please remove the haze from around the territory names on the Europe map? It makes the writing hard to read, and covers up borders and attack routes... plus I think the xml file will really need a good going over...

I know someone's already mentioned the haze, but I'm also thinking the dark blue of the waters are making it hard to see some of the darker colors of the map. They all kind of blend in. The map is just a little too dark all around. Maybe?

All in good time, j-rotten. The map just went live this morning, and I won't even get back home where I can work on Photoshop for another 4 hours. Then, I will do all that I can this evening to improve the map, and I've already fixed everything that's been addressed in the .xml file.

aladriel, I assume you're looking at the smaller map, which for whatever reason came out much darker when i resized it. It's been addressed that the smaller version should be larger, so maybe a larger image will solve the problem... but of course this also means another 3 hours of work on the xml file, which may not get done until some time this weekend. anyhow, that's where it's at, so you guys don't feel like i'm abandoning you.

Grim.. definitely don't feel like you're abandoning! I understand there's a life outside of here! :P I also noticed that I was attacked from Denmark to Sweden, but I can't attack Denmark from Sweden.

Ok so I'm thinking this for the final version how is it? I'll still have to redo all the numbers so it'll take a couple of days

Is it just me, or is this thread really cluttered and random?

I think I liked it better when people were posting their problems and props in the map's thread. But hey, it could just be my OCD acting up... :roll:

"Brazil looks fun though, just started playing it and so far so good :) "

Thanks, Augusta :wink:

"I think Marvaddin is actually Lack...... :roll: "

Yeah, Marvaddin and lackattack are multis and are banned from playing together again :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Supermarcol: yeah, I think the numbers should be in the territory and the names on the sea, for those small countries. It will be much better. I dont know that much about Canadian geography, so, Maritimes are the continent of the east coast, or of the west coast?? Joking, its in the east coast, right? But we men only see 16 colors, so both Maritimes and B.C. are green. Could you change the color of Maritimes (or B.C.)?? Only a suggestion.
