Congo DOES border Zimbabwe.

Some other vague borders are Egypt-Levant and the whole Greece area.

And at first I wasn't sure if Hawaii and New Caledonia are part of the Oceania bonus because they don't have much visible coloured land with the troops on top.

But, y'know, it's not too bad and it doesn't stop me (or many others) from playing it. And I think this map is too classic (so to speak) to change now.

This is my favourite map to play. First few times I got caught out from a couple of the connections ManB mentioned, but like all new players, I learnt. My biggest GP cock up comes from Guyana. I always kept on missing that one when playing it.

+ I do not think any map is not classic enough to have a revamp at some point. But this one will be a hard one to get done.

Sri Lanka is invisible, too. It does need a facelift.

This is one map I would love to take a crack at in a revamp. I love this map and know of the things wrong with it, but also I would hate to see this one (version) go.

Well we could petition to change the rules to allow a World 2.1 AND a version 2.2.

In the course of various graphics-only revamps, it has crossed my mind that it would be nice if people could select the graphics they like, the old or the new. It could be a choice like the map size is now.

I suggested map skins once. Nobody liked it.

We have skins for maps, just not ones we can change at will. Also, how many map makers are willing to do this?

Probably not many, but it would be a really cool premium feature.

World 2.0/1 Map Auto-ended attack

Postby reynie34 on Wed Mar 20, 2013 12:11 pm

Game 12468734, Round 13, march 20,13
I was only about 5 mins. into my turn when it just auto- ended my attack, and asked if i wanted to do re-enforcments. I was in a good position and had a good strategy laid out, which this totaly destroyed by ending my attack. The time was between 11:03-04 am.

This wouldn't be a map issue.

Are you sure you didn't accidentally press the E key? That ends a phase of your turn.

Accidentally clicking the middle button on the map will do the same thing. That is something that is, I think, more likely to occur than accidentally pressing a key.

I didn't read all the 70 pages, sorry for that. But I notice that in this map Russia and Korea doesn't border each other. But in the reality they does.

Many maps on this site have such little deviations from geographic reality. They are usually introduced for reasons of better gameplay, or occasionally because of the difficulty of depicting all such details on maps limited in size as they are here.

Hi there,

Relatively new player here... absolutely love World 2.1... I made my own gameboard using it and I don't know if that was sacrilegious or something.

Would a picture of my World 2.1 board be okay to post?

Dude, can the original post be updated with link to xml so we don't have to search through this whole thread?

* deleted the additional dumb question that I asked- I was looking at the wrong thing.
