this is what interested me the most.zimmah wrote:i'll take a more in depth look about balance later.
this part is going to be very tricky and somehow i think no matter how much we'll talk about it in the foundry the only way we'll get this right is going in beta. there are so many variables in this that regardless of how much we analyse it we'll never get it right just by looking at the image.

and I noticed two spelling mistakes under Lady mia. misterious should be mysterious. and up under Baron von Bucht, on the second line, produces should be produced and on the third line " he knew" should be "he knows".

i was talking to bruceswar in the papua contest thread and he could not believe me when i said i could do such an entry for the contest in under 3 hours.
i did it and decided to enter the contest. http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=3410497#p3410497.
came second and decided i'm not gonna throw away 2 hours and 10 minutes worth of photoshopping so when zimmah said he'd like a map with missions i added added the solomon islands changed the gameplay added stories and got pirates and merchants
thenobodies80 wrote:DiM, about your supersize applications, I'm fine with having this map 1200 wide. I was wondering if the legend could be reduced in some way.
Mainly for two reasons: You have lot of unused space there, the minimap doesn't need to have the bonus regions splitted, specially because you have the numbers that fits the bonus territory. You can try also to have the text/objectives written more closer. Honestly at glance I can't say how much space you can save in that way, but try to save more you can. The purpose of my request is to have less height possible, to avoid scrolling. Although it seems strange some users on this site still have small monitors and we should try to make them happy when possible.
As soon as you have the current map cropped in the best way you can, I don't see reason to not give you the supersize approval and see your project moved into the main foundry.
Btw I like how you turned your old map in this one, nice idea mate!
*reduced height by 100px

so we're actually already messing up the foundry to take revenge on andy?
(no but seriously it's the exact opposite for me)

btw i really hate that horizontal line you have at the top of your legend, it "cuts" the mast of both ships.
DiM wrote:imageshack is a no. i hate that site. it has the stupidest interface ever created.
normally i used photobucket which has a very user friendly interface and i can keep track of my files very easy.
however photobucket insists on resizing anything above 1mega and since this image is 1.6 it's shrunk a lot unless i save it at a lower quality. and this is jpg. if i save it as png it's hell.
imageshack does not resize my images but it has the shittiest interface ever.
so i found post image.org which has a really neat interface and it does not resize my images. but apparently people can't see the images. no idea why
i'll guess i'll have to look for yet another hosting site with a big enough file limit and good interface.
as for the horizontal line, that's there to mark the legend space. i will probably do some flowery thing, a nicer border or something, so don't worry about it.
