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


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

Ahhhhhh......, Just kidding, Lack. I wouldn't wanna be bounced for THAT comment! :shock:

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.

Two bugs...

On the British Isles map, it appears that Land's End isn't paying the region bonus.

And on the Europe map, the map shows that Finland can attack St. Petersburg (and vice versa), but you can't actually do it when you try.

Players actually got the bonus but it didn't get recorded to the log because of the apostrophe. It is now fixed.
