Absolutely it is. You seem very keen to argue on a map that you’re not interested in, though. ;)
i don't come here to argue, i come here to provide imput so you can make a map that will interest me and the CC community at large.

i have suggested the real world in 3 different posts. DiM went to the effort to post a map of a real place for you to base your map on.

and what do you do? respond to the flamers & ignore the constructive criticism's.

lets stop arguing and start providing constructive criticism. main thing i want to point out is 36 territories is such a back number! it gives whoever goes first in sequential 2 and 3 players games a lot of power since all they need is one territory and that player get one less army than they did. my suggestion would be to find a way to either add or subtract a territory. its late and i cant remember if this is abstract or based on a real place but if abstract then you have complete power over the map, you are god, you can create new islands and crap if need be

Your suggestion of making a real world place is not really of any value to us. It's not "constructive criticism." It's not even criticism, really. You're giving your opinion, which you are perfectly entitled to, but since you're telling us to scrap what we have and start from scratch, it's not particularly beneficial to us. We don't really want to do a map of a real world place, probably for the same reasons as you don't want to see us do a fictional place. I'm sorry that doesn't interest you, but your opinion does not represent the opinion of the "CC community at large." Also, for the record, we haven't been ignoring any serious comments, either for or against this map.

Sure, we can add/subtract territories without a problem. What number would be best to have? I don't know the exact algorithm for deciding neutral placement, but if I remember correctly, even numbers are best. In that case, should we make two additional territories?

If you would give any criticism for this map, we would gladly take it. But the only thing you've been saying is "it looks like Discworld," which, as we explained earlier, isn't really helpful.

Thanks for the continued interest, CatfishJohnson and Herakilla :D

To Do:
1) Decide how many territories to add/subtract

it seems this post was ignored:

DiM wrote:as much as i like fantasy maps i don't find this one attractive at all. i mean making up a bogus archipelago just for the sake of it is wrong. if you want to create a special gameplay yes you can come up with fantasy realms to suit your needs but if it's classic gameplay then why not do a real place? you will have a lot more success by doing the hawaii islands or by making the malay archipelago because people relate better to a real place than to a fantasy theme. and frankly unless the fantasy theme comes from something very popular (middle earth, discworld) or the gameplay is something new and exciting (aom, feudal, aor) then people won't play it.

look at this image of the malay archipelago. isn't it nice?

ok i know i said that i would ignore this - but you need to be told - you need to take critisism and take in information from others
whenever i say that you always come out with some long winded piece of crap that confuses people and all to dodge the question,

DiM was ignored - listen to him

and btw DiM you ignored my posts on teh foundry discssion! well everyone did :( !

you were not ignored DiM. they basically told us to piss off in this post. they only want to hear from people who agree with them.

yepp
see this is all the regulars from the foundry speaking here, if the regulars dont see something that will work, they wont discard it, they will suggest and critisize it (contructive critisism), but you wont take it,
there nothing special to the map,
nothing anyone can relate to,
no descripion of it,
what is it???????

since you cant take critisism and you wont listen to it, lets move this to Final Forge, there you wont get any critisism what so ever, nothing, lets quench it now if your reluctant to listen - then you will get hordes of people willing to play,
^sarcasm^

oh i know what will happen:

either:

1) this will be ignored

2) discarded

3) ill respond but act innocent

4) snap back with a long winded remark that means nothing

5)move on and do nothing and continue to only hear what he wants to listen to


what do you want us to say?

outstanding map, nothing to add, FF it and quench right away, dont listen to critisism, do it your way so your happy - who cares about what others think, if they dont like it - they will have to just deal with it.


attitude problem - i am not normally like this you know

DiM: You are right, I did not specifically respond to you. I beg your pardon. The Malay archipelago is very nice.

However, I don’t feel that you can issue a blanket statement on our existing map like, “people won’t play it.” I have received support for the idea in game chats and in this very thread. Perhaps you won’t play it.

Also for the record, I’ve found that to most people on the internet, unless they live near it or are particularly interested in the world, the Malay archipelago is as irrelevant as our archipelago is. Most people are stuck in their own little spot of geography and couldn’t tell Bucharest from Yaoundé.

t-o-m: We have taken criticism. I have changed the map instantly to reflect the criticism of wcaclimbing. I have not scrapped the map, as you have suggested I do, and so perhaps in that I have not taken your criticism. I do not feel required to give up on this idea simply because you and a few others do not like it. ConquerClub is a big place, and I feel there is room for this idea here.

Also, I might let you know that it is puerile to thread-jack other people’s map threads simply because you disagree with Zeak and I in this thread.

greenoaks: No, he didn’t basically tell you to piss off. Since you don’t seem to go for the polite way, I’ll tell you the way that I’d have said it. “I am not going to scrap this map. Period. Suggesting changing it to a real-world archipelago is not helpful, because that’s asking me to make an entirely different map. It’s not a change about this one. If you have something useful to say, if you would like something about this map changed, I will happily listen. If not, and you just want to complain that I should do something else, then piss off.”

TaCktiX: Thank you for notifying us of your non-interest.

t-o-m II: Oh, you’re ALL the regulars? I never knew that you four decided everything on ConquerClub.

Everyone: I realise that not everyone will like the map. I am perfectly cognizant of that fact. I accept it. I am aware of it. You do not need to keep reiterating it.

Something that you might keep in mind is that I have followed all rules for this forum. I am not required to remake the map from an actual geographical location, I am only required in rule four that:

4. All sound advice must be followed unless a logical rebuttal by the cartographer or another member of the community is provided.

We have provided these rebuttals. You are just saying that you are not interested, and keep saying this. I know this. I get the point. I hear you. You hate my map. That’s nice. Now please proceed to remember rule five:

5. To proceed through the foundry the community must show a reasonable amount of interest towards a map.

This rule is designed to take care of exactly the problem that you have with our map. Okay? If there is not enough interest, then it will not get passed out of Map Ideas. It is as simple as that. I do not need to hear “no one will play it” over and over again. That is not useful criticism.

Let the non-interest that you say abounds show itself, don’t incessantly inform me that it’s there.
Reputation cleared. :) Never let it be said that Team CC don't investigate fairly.
Although they take bloody forever to do it...
