Is anyone else confused as to why Lydia doesn't connect with Thrace?
Byzanitium is connect to Thrace, even though there is a little bit of water in between the country, so what isn't Lydia connected, seeing as there is a little but of yellow land connected to Thrace?
lol, i'm always trying to attack from one to the other, gaah!

He last played in December last year...

So I would assume not?

Hi guys,

I'm reviving this old thread for a small nitpick I just noticed... Maybe I'll only get 'nevermind'-s but I thought I could at least report it ;)

Byzantium, in the North of this map, is spelled as Byzanitium! The XML is fine though.
I think this is a really tiny change. Still, maybe not worth the effort.

Guys, I think a reaction is the least you could give me.
Doesn't anyone feel like changing Byzanitium into Byzantium?

If the XML had the spelling mistake, the change would be simple to amend. It's harder to alter an image... perhaps we'll get around to updating it at some point - but it's not on anybody's list of priorities ;-)

The XML could also be updated with Ptolomy (Or Ptolemy, not sure which one is correct)

The next time I hook up my old external HD i'll check to see if I have the necessary file laying around somewhere. If not, unfortunately I wont be able to change that spelling error :\

Remarkably, I had the old photoshop files stashed away in a weird corner of my external HD. So, spelling fixed.

If you've found the PSD, would you be able to tweak the border of India Inferior so that 3-digit army numbers will fit in there?

That would only require an XML tweak, no? If someone wants to go ahead and do that, be my guest, you officially have my permission. I personally don't want to spend too much time on that, though, especially considering that I can't see why anyone would ever choose to store a 3-digit army on India Inferior :?

The coords could be shifted on the large map easily; but the small map could do with a slight tweak to the border of India Inferior, so that the 2-digit number won't look out of place or in the wrong territory. I've no problem with amending the XML - I just thought it would be an easy fix while you had access to the original PSD?

The reason we ask for 3-digit numbers to fit suitably, is to assist people who use the colourblind feature to help distinguish army counts, rather than fitting in massive armies in silly places ;-)

Just by inspecting the map, I have a feeling that the way I constructed it would mean that changing a border's shape would be a bit of a pain.

But maybe it'll be something to do on a rainy day. I'll keep it in mind.

Maybe in that case it's easier if you make the map a bit wider? You don't have to change borders that way, only continue them.

Or is this at max width already?

Yeah, looks good to me the.killing. If someone wants to go ahead and edit that xml file, you have my blessing (and thanks).

Actually, that'd be even more of a hassle :p

the xml file needs to be changed anyway to eliminate byzanitium and cyrenacia. on the map images, text needs to be changed from cyrenacia to cyrenaica.

incidentally, libya and cyrenaica appear to have swapped places from their relative positions when compared with this wikipedia map.

Cyrenaica is and was a Libyan region. The zone represented on the alexander map as cyrenaica is only the northern part of this region. So it is obviously sorrounded by the libyan desert. I suppose that the author of the map you posted didn't find the free room to place the "libyans" text on the right side of the legend. ;)

This is a more accurate image of those places if it could help. (even if it represent those regions during the late period of Ptolemaic kingdom/beginning of the roman empire)
