Plenty of posts are getting ignored around here - primarily any where someone said that they like the new map?!

I don't think those are being ignored. They just said they liked the new map and that's all.

No need to give a reply to that kind of post.

Well saying that would've been better than being an arse about it.

Come on Qwert don't you see that there is something wrong with this revamp? Or else why would hundreds of people who usually don't give a damn about map making start posting complains? We cannot continue pressing on with the ready made phrase "they should have checked the foundry while the map was being revamped so their opinion does not count".


And please stop making this an issue of map makers vs gamers because it's not...



Ok,i have idea,that Rewamp of these map,be moved to General Discusion,and be stickied,and in that way we will solve first main problem-participiation of people.I belive that these will be best first step to solve problems. ;)

This is the real democratic solution:

Poll on My Games page which states whether you want to revert to the old Classic or not.

The real reason why this is not being considered is because the majority would vote against the new map and the old one would be reinstated.

I just cannot understand why the will of the majority is being ignored and why it all had to boil down to this. The changes were unpopular, one cannot ignore that.

Oh you're far from being ignored. Hasn't everything we've said been a testament to that? There's a lot going on behind the scenes, and I suspect we may hear something (at least an update) tomorrow (or later today depending on your time zone).

Thanks for the effort yeti_c, it's great to see someone being so productive and trying to find the *best* answer according to consensus.

But I'm afriad I agree with Wicked - the original dots are superior to all the options on your 'range of dots' post, in my opinion.

Of the dots on your 'range of dots' map, I prefer Australia. Africa and South America are too solid already.

If North America were lighter, that'd be great - but that is essentially what the original dots are.

Like I said, the original dots were fine.

For me, the other big issue is the "neon sign" key on the bottom left of the screen for people who can't work out where South America is... the old one was better.

Just wanted to give you some actual feedback yeti_c. Thanks for putting in the effort, appreciated.

I really liked Aus actually too - although I have a feeling that the army numbers won't stand out well enough against them.

So here's some numbers on the image...

I think that to make a proper comparison we need to have the same army shadows for all the map because it also depends on the continent's colour.

i.e. show us 4 maps each with the 4 different army shadows including armies.

P.S. I have problems reading that 5 in Indonesia.

Thanks yeti_c. Now that I see it with numbers on it, Australia doesn't work so well - like Ruben said, the grey doesn't show well against it at all.

I think the whole white dot concept is fundamentally flawed.

North America, however, looks great. It's easy to read and it doesn't interfere with the asthetics of the map.

I would settle for North America's dots - and that's coming from a die-hard "bring back the original map" guy.

What does everyone else think?

Thanks again yeti_c.

Yeti, def. darker circles are better....N.A. dots (dark gray) are the best. Can the yellow army numbers be brightened or neoned to stand out from silver and white/neutral?
