I can't make it more 3D. It was made with a 3D program. Believe me I tilted it every way. This perspective give the largest area for teh actual map play area, while allowing everyone to see arean (Circus Maximus) as much as possible.
This is awesome. Still some issues though. I think you need to display the names in a similar fashion to the original map, I can't visualize the overlapping names working right now.
Other then that quench~!
I will try that. I felt that this was a better feel but we shall see.

I think that was intentional, judging from the slope in the dirt there. I don't mind it.
More on that, I think a perfectly flat chariot ring isn't realistic, I guess it's up to the community on if we care about that or not.
I will make a straight and wobbly track rings. Once they are up I will have Keyogi start a poll.

I wanted to try and capture the actual feeling of the giant stadium and the atmosphere behind the circus maximus arena. The map is still playable and easy to read. The original map has a larger area but you really don't get a good feel of what circus maximus really is.

Yeah, that made it easier to tell that you could attack diagonally. With all the straight edges, it looks like you can only attack in front of you, and side-to-side.
I was actually thinking of this yesterday. I will update those for both the wobbly and straight track pictures.
Oh and should the original artist sig read: rocksolid or what my map currently has (from the original map on site)?
Here are the army pictures
