You should get rid of the ice and keep the N.

Doesn't hurt to give it a look... thoughts?
Personally I can go either way - it doesn't effect game play, and I've been able to get used to it both ways.

edit: had to update the image to replace two lost elements... also made the N and the pole marker a wee bit bigger, as they are very small against the arctic sea.

I like the Ice Cap...but perhaps you could argue it shouldn't be there...because all the bombs that have been dropped have melted away all the ice. :(

I also like the icecap because at first glance you may not notice that this is a polar view of the world. I didn't.

Hmmm... If this were the case than the polar caps having melted would diminish the land area considerably... basically causing oaktown to have to redraft the entire map!

LOL Just BS'ing... this map should be fun. Good work!

I could be wrong, but if the all of the ice at the north pole were to melt, it wouldn't raise the sea level... floating ice displaces the same amount of water as is contained in that ice.

But I liked the point about the map not being immediately identifiable as polar view without the ice... I'm leaning toward putting it back in, but you all can keep discussing.
