I agree with colored legend numbers.

I really don't like the way the legend looks, the rock texture in the back doesn't like good, and the roof thingy on top isn't centered (can be fixed by shrinking the legend a little so there is room to move it to the right).

Could the text all be made the same size please?

And remove the graphics in the ocean, I don't like them either.

I will make the numbers on the legend colored too, I just didn't want to go ahead and do that at a stage when the colors weren't definite yet. But It'll be in the next update.

Anyone else have a problem with the rock-legend, other then "I don't like it?"

I'll unify the text labels on the next update as well.

And remove the graphics in the ocean, I don't like them either.

No. Did I not tell you 20 times already to shut the hell up about that? Move on and shut your damn mouth about it. You're the only one who has an issue with it, and frankly, I don't care. At all. I'm making this map for the enjoyment of the Conquer Club community, and so that I have something to fill a little bit of free time. I'm not making this map to please lanyards.

I apologize if some of the words I used above aren't acceptable on Conquer Club, i'm not quite up to date with the rules. But it was called for, as he has been saying the same thing over and over, both in this thread and in-game.

For what it's worth, which is apparently not very much, I don't like the graphics in the ocean either.

Frankly, I am part of the ConquerClub community. Also, I don't remember saying anything about the water graphics... You want to ignore me, go ahead. Why I added you to the DOUCHE list. Lol.

Don't bother Zeak. If your suggestion doesn't go along with what he's thinking, it is discarded.

I assumed by "graphics in the water" you meant, the minotaur, and the ships (you know, the graphics... in the water). If you were talking about the graphic FOR the water, I apologize (though you should have made that clearer). Either way you're still a douche for bringing it up so many times before this.

Yes, you're a member of the Conquer Club community, but you're 1 member amongst many, including myself. Now including Zeak (assuming he meant the graphics in the water, not the graphics of the water, which isn't clear), there have been 2 members total to mention they didn't like them, and at least as many who have mentioned they *do* like them. Your vote doesn't count double, so when your personal preference doesn't get implemented, you have no place continually bitching about it.

Don't bother Zeak. If your suggestion doesn't go along with what he's thinking, it is discarded.

I'd call you an idiot, but i'm giving you the benifit of the doubt and assuming you're just being an ass. You know thats not true, and I find it hard to believe you're dense enough to not understand what i'm trying to say.

Well, now people are starting to speak up. So you better do something about it. All my posts in this thread have contained constructive comments, so far you've managed to blow most of them off.

Your mountains, I agree, look like broccoli.

And I was referring to the water. But I did also say the graphics are bad, so really I think both are bad. I only said one so you wouldn't explode.

No, I have not. As you can see from your last post, I took 3 of your 4 points seriously, and mentioned that I was following 2 of them. The 3rd I asked for more opinions. The fourth, was a repeat of something i've responded to multiple times.

Your mountains, I agree, look like broccoli.

Others have said they liked them. I'm wondering if you realize that you can't please everyone. If something is unanimously hated, I'll change it. If its nearing a 50/50 split, i'm going to go with what I like, not with what lanyards likes.

I don't know if it will make a difference, but I personally like the graphics in the water while I think that the mountains look horrible. Just my opinion...

Usually when there are a few people that don't like something, the mapmaker would try other things to satisfy a good majority. So far, since the broccoli update, I have only seen one comment on the mountain, which was a negative comment. Unless of course you were refering to this:

Right now, I think putting up a few examples of how the mountains could look would help you get the best results. I have seen other cartographers do that.

There you go. Opinions. All of them should be respected.

I really like the graphics on the water. It helps fill in the empty space and brings a bit of life into the map.
But the mountains? I thought they were trees....
Maybe a little more grey/brown color would help them out.

Regarding the water graphics... I personally like the ships you've placed in the northern half of the map, the minotaurs not as much. Maybe you could try adding a third ship to replace the minotaurs, just to see how it looks.
As for the mountains, possibly pushing to the left the ones that go off the water's edge and thinning down the entire range slightly could make them work better.
And this map needs an [Official] tag in the thread title (a mod should add one soon). Gimil, get to it!

When have I said I wasn't considering changing the mountains? Since I've posted them i've been letting people comment. Next time I open it, I will in fact give them another try. You're right, now that I look no one has said they liked the mountains, but that had nothing to do with my point about not being able to please everyone.

There you go. Opinions. All of them should be respected.

I don't believe you're really this dense. When in this thread have I not respected people's opinions? The only problem I have is when people state their own opinions as fact, and not following those opinions as a broken law. And really, the only person to have done that is you.

This is not about the mountains, I never said I wouldn't try them again. The only time I defended them was when I was explaining why they were green. They are green because the actual mountains there are green, and however they end up, they will be green.

The only thing i've *somewhat* refused to waiver on is the minotaurs. And I didn't even say that I didn't want people to comment on them, I said I don't want YOU commenting on it, because you had already done so multiple times. Everyone is allowed to share their opinions, and they will all be heard and considered. I've made that clear many times. What should be crystal clear to you by now, is that YOUR opinion is no more important than that of everyone else's. Share it, and as I have with everyone's suggestions so far, I will consider it! I will try it, and I will see how it looks. For the little things that are purely a matter of taste (not a matter of quality - eg. someone likes blue more then red), I may make an executive decision to veto your suggestion. I'll try it, i'll look at it, and if it really has little effect on the map, and I prefer one way rather then the other, i'm going to go with the way I like.

Don't try and paint me as someone who doesn't listen to the community suggestions, because the only thing I've refused to listen to so far is your repeated suggestion to remove the minotuars. And the only reason I refused that is because you (rudely) said it so many times and ignored my responses.
