i think a couple of others may have said this, but anatolia could be made smaller, its much too big a continent to try to hold especially with all the smaller ones

and the two greens you're using are too similar in my opinion

I'm in the process of working on that now Qwert.
And of course it's going to be different...we're too different cartographers, but that's why i chose Asian minor and Africa for my WWI maps, so you could have Europe. :)

Version 2.

1. I've adjusted the spacing issue...Turkey should look less cramped now.
2. Anatolia (Turkey) has been divided into East and West to break them down bonus wise.
3. Also changed the font on the title

i like it

the east anatolia color could be changed a little more, its still pretty similar to the other bonus...

the title looks good

legend could use some reworking, the names of the continents look too light on that very shiny silverish background... maybe a darker border around those letters or just darken the letters overall.

i am still not a fan of the background color, but ultimately i could live with it

the playable area is a bit tight, and i think you could shave off like 4 or 5 pixels off of the left side of the map, push british egypt's name and circle a little right, then stretch out the right some more to give it more room. if you don't understand, just say and maybe i can explain it a little better

all that will change, but one step at a time eh?! ;)

I am not going to distort the map any further. I will adjust the rim of the legend, but those terts for egypt etc are where they are supposed to be. it's simply a case of africa being much larger than the middle east and because of the size of the terts, they are going to look more spacious obviously.
i really can't see where you're coming from saying that the playing area is a bot tight. this is the small map.

yeah, i know what you're saying about africa looking much bigger... its just so top heavy with all the stuff in middle east that i want the map to come in at a different angle... kinda like that picture that someone put up for the brazil competition, showing europe from the ussr remember? that might make the dense area of middle east a little less cramped?

I definitely like the idea. I was always surprised at how little interest there was on this site for the middle eastern empires. And the WWI theme is also a great addition to our map roster.

I agree that the map seems a little cramped, but there is little you can do, especially since this is the small version. Also, in the territory Kutais, i can't tell if the that little block of land below it is attached or seperate to the territory. It has a line, but it isn't as dark as the others. Is it just a mistake?

Re: WW1 1914 - THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE V3(P2) New Design

Postby cairnswk on Sat Aug 16, 2008 10:06 pm

Version 3

Please refer to Page 1 for information on the new territories.

1. 42 territories now split into several more continents, with better gameplay options.
2. Obvious colour changes to those territories
3. Obvious design changes in the shape of the dome.

Re: WW1 1914 - THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE V3(P2) - New Gameplay

Postby edbeard on Sun Aug 17, 2008 1:44 am

new gameplay makes this a much better map (at a glance anyway). I'll talk gameplay later but after a while of producing maps that don't do it for me personally, this one does.


The Good:

1. The shape of the playable part of the map itself is nice.

2. The unique colours: we don't usually see these on maps. At least not these tones.


The Bad:

1. I know it's the small map and the space is a slight problem but some of these names are too close or confusing. I'm not talking territory names for the most part (though a few need slight moving as you probably know) but your neutral areas (Arabia and Abyssina are too close to playable parts of the map). The port names seem like double trouble to me. Is it called this or that? It's nice for the historical aspect but maybe they can be put in a different font or something to distinguish them.

2. Legend fonts and format. The title just doesn't seem to go with the rest of the map. I think it's the font. The bottom notes are two points but the format combines them. Ports and neutral starts don't mix.

3. some of your borders have weird things going on in them (you probably know). Kenia-antep to angora. I thought I saw more but I can't find them at this moment and maybe they just don't exist.


The Ugly:

1. The continent names in the legend are horribly illegible. I think the silver is the problem. The bright/light colours also probably hinder it but try putting a stroke round the names and/or a shadow to add contrast so the light colours don't mix with the bright background.

2. you continent colours and/or how you've put them on the map make it hard for me to tell what continent is which in some spots. Well this is really continuing on the last point. But, the other problem is while two territories belong to the same continent, the way the colour is spread in each one differs and gives a weird affect. This is most prominent in the southern west Ottoman continent (Syria?). The colours in british egypt and anglo-egyptian sudan (spelled eyptian on the map - error or just how they spelled it there?) seem a shade different to me. Look at the line that borders the neutral abyssina and the line (in british egypt) that borders the red sea

I'm considerably more fond of the version 3 shape of the map thingy. The dome feels much nicer than the oblongy shape.

neutral names moved and faded
port names removed

2. Legend fonts and format. The title just doesn't seem to go with the rest of the map. I think it's the font. The bottom notes are two points but the format combines them. Ports and neutral starts don't mix.

I like the title font, so i think unless others complain i'll keep it.
the port and neutral mix unmixed.

3. some of your borders have weird things going on in them (you probably know). Kenia-antep to angora. I thought I saw more but I can't find them at this moment and maybe they just don't exist.

yes still having issues with borders, i might put an overlay of black borders over the top later.

The Ugly:
1. The continent names in the legend are horribly illegible. I think the silver is the problem. The bright/light colours also probably hinder it but try putting a stroke round the names and/or a shadow to add contrast so the light colours don't mix with the bright background.

those should be fixed

i've changed some on the colours around, but finally just waiting for oaktown to visit. ;)

Postby Juan_Bottom on Mon Aug 18, 2008 7:38 am

Ok... allow me to break the chain of lovin'.

Not a fan.
I mostly enjoy classic, and super strategy maps, and as for this particular map it doesn't fit into either catagory.

I hate the French, and Italian bonuses. You have two +1s right on top of each other. So If a player captures them both, they have a +2, for holding two territories. Plus, these two +1s are isolated, so they are harder to break. And another one... not a fan of that H. of Mecca bonus either...
Personally, I never liked those maps with a +1 for holding one spot. But this map takes it a bit farther...

Now, your newest version is a terrific visual improvement over the original though. Strange though, cause they look so similer....lol

I guess my quibble is that unlike e'ryone else, I hate the bonuses.
