Ok, there does not seem to be much interest in this either way, therefore i may well just move on and think about this later, to be honest it has served it purpose, i am addicted again...

More to follow when i have time and a plan.

considering there are ~10 regular foundry posters, getting 7 votes means there's interest in this project. :roll:

if you were expecting 100 votes then you're in the wrong time frame. find a time machine and go back 3-4 years :)

i'd say keep going with the revamp. i really like the crisp new look. =D>

You are right, i do miss the foundries hay day, to be honest i might as well finish off the revamp now it is under way, and while im doing that i can devote my brain to planning.
Hopefully i can get something done by the end of the week which is a complete draft.
Also unless anyone has any really strong feelings i dont think i will change the legend much, if at all, my main focus will be on redoing the 3D part of the map.

Ok, im now working on a new perspective version of ODW, any feedback? (NE not finished, and obviously stash house or city hall (oh and pool room in hideout needs finishing))
Not entirely sure about supply either, something is annoying me about it, any thoughts?

i'm not too fond of the top right corner curl.
however you do need to make the image look like an actual photo. and this can be easily achieved by giving it a small white margin (optional) and a central curvature.

something like this:

Or, with such a crisp 3D image like that, you could have the map be displayed on the screen of some device, perhaps? Though I suppose it may mess up the "Top Secret file" theme you've got going on.

Dont worry the top right curl was literally done by erasing the new image to show the one on the old one, mainly to give it a similar look to the original image, im going to change that when i get round to doing this properly.
As much as i think the photo curl looks good the problem is i have to be careful to make sure the territories all stay in the same place so no army circles move, i will play around with it and see if i can make it work, even it is only a small curl.

sadly as much as i think it would be funny to make it look like a computer screenshot from google maps or something i dont think that can be achieved without moving army circles and i really dont want to go down the route of changing the XML.

It is very easy to change the coordinates in the XML using chipv's Map XML Wizard. If you need help with that, give me a shout. I should be able to produce a new XML file which differs from the current one only in the coordinate values and provide a differences summary which should keep the Foundry foreman and the admins happy that no gameplay changes are occurring.

This conversation could be merged with the original map thread.

(not that I'm telling the mods how to do their work or anything :P )
