Coleman wrote:The reason I'm being cruel is because I know you can take it and you are an excellent map maker. It's just right now this is well below what I typically expect to see this far in, which is frustrating because this is my favorite map of yours that you have going right now. (Not counting what is in Final Forge) I am just hoping for a visual update soon, and hoping you know where the big problems are, which it seems you do.
Coleman wrote:Sorry you feel the way but I too find this exchange intolerable because this isn't a quality I expected this long after being out of Map Ideas and it's hard to control the rage associated with that annoyance in this case because I know you can do better.
Don't worry to much about it, it's likely you won't have to deal with me again until you have xml.
Coleman wrote:There'll be need and reason for it soon enough...
I'll be gentler from now on, and push comments back when your timeline is bothering me.
... Can't you at least do something about the legend text real fast? Make it a different font or make it less blurry somehow?

Much of what else I had to say was said already (mostly by the remarkably prescient oaktown).
Gees, three of you on pills...what is happening....thanks Incadenza for that input... i will tkae it into account when i git around to doing this map again.
C'mon, you know I respect you. I apologize if that came off badly, or if I was piling on...
And now I want some cookies.

You've got skills - i suspect you'll find a way. But I agree - 3D map bad. My concern was simply that many of your individual elements are short and wide, while Chicago is a tall and thin city.
Well, maybe not the people so much.
Can somebody pass me those cookies?
Coleman wrote:A lot of my frustration came from it being page 5 and the last update being page 2... So I really hope you find the time soon. I don't think it's good when gaps like that happen in the topic.

I get that I'm a CA but I have my right to behave like a normal commenter, and I would like it if you'd treat me as such. I'll look at your xml.
I'm not interested in starting a war, I just wanted to make sure you know what my point of view was when I made that post.
