It is alright, i am fine, Im not locked in a cellar guarded by a monkey with a unholy fetish for bananas. Im not being tortured by wicked in order to reveal the location of DiM in order to force him in to stopping large maps production.
Now get back on topic or i will ban you all.

Do we have to get a revamp?

I have a feeling it's going to look nicer but be less playable :?

I really like this version. It's nice, it's pretty bright, and it looks more like a game board than a photoshop masterpiece.

I think Africa and Germany could use a few improvements far more than this map.

I don't see how it will be less playable? If you're referring to the 4way border being changed, to be honest there is a better solution. Just leave the 4way border there since it appears to be a real life border (I think I read that in this thread). But, with all the extra open space this map has put a note explaining that attacks cannot be made across the diagonal.

It's like with the circus maximus revamp, which I don't like. Don't get me wrong, it looks amazing, but the 3D perspective on it leads me to dislike it (or at least like it less than the old version) because it's too much like a piece of art and not enough like a real game board - hence, less playable (for people like me, at least).

Well then I guess you are probably not a fan of my maps. :(

I see what you are saying about wanting a real board game and not art but...
all board game boards are art, regardless of the detail.

It is just an opinion and I respect that. You will vote accordingly. :)

em the point of a revamp is because the graphics aren't up to current standards. I don't think it would be up for revamp if it wasn't needed.

take this from the people putting effort into revamping it.

the hardest thing about this revamp is figuring out what's going on in the north part of the map because of all the untidy graphics.

The current map isn't the most beautiful map on CC, but it's hardly the ugliest. However, there have been a number of members asking for a revamp of this map and plenty of people with an interest in doing so. I have no problem with there being a petition, it can't hurt.

I notice there has been talk of people showing their revamp effort off to others in the foundry. I would really like to discourage this as the competition is supposed to be anonymous. I am available to provide feedback on the revamps if need be and the whole idea of keeping identities secret is to provide a fair competition for everyone.

I've personally only seen one persons revamp, but I know there are at least another 3 in the works. Kind of makes me wonder if there's a secret society I don't know about. :wink:

I'm not I understand why with some of these maps it's not possible for people to choose which version of the map they use. Some people might prefer to use the older version, so for maps with revamps, why can't there be options for which version the user prefers to use?

I love the revamps but others apparently don't.
