... All these maps!!

... I'd bet CC players have a better knowledge of world geography than the average American college graduate!

... I mean... who knew where the hell Kweichow was before playing the Asian map here? And who ever even heard of Mysore in India? :lol:

... I feel so smart.

Add Swaziland and Cote' De Ivory. Other than that is GREAT! You really don't need to, but I'd like it.

if i added thoes coutries then i would have to do more xml and changing of the map. plus i would have to decide which territory they belong to and a bunch of other stuff that would just take a long time. thanks for the suggestion. while im here im just wondering if anyone on conquerclub plays Metroid Prime Hunters online for the Nintendo DS. If you do let me know and tell me your friend codes!!

Yeah, I know! Before playing here, I'd never even realized that Korea was a part of Japan!

The yellow continent in the legend is still rather hard to read, green is also pushing it. Both would've benefited from sort of outline lettering. But other than that I like it and look forward to playing it.

I disagree - can't imagine anyone not being able to read this. Andy, is it that you can't read it or you imagine someone else having trouble? I usually trust your judgment. Great job Little Waddling Dude, or whatever your name is. Looking forward to playing the map!

Looks really intresting, but I too have a hard time seeing yellow and green in the legend. I can see what it says, but it looks really dizzy...

To his and her their own. I'm just saying it would've been a benefit for everyone to outline, considering the bright yellow on a bright blue, and the green also. Finishing touches always make the map even better and better! But it is still a rather good map.

Edit: Ah if you did then, I'll just wait and see how the legend was updated. Perhaps my posts have no place if you've already implemented them.

Didn't realize you were talking about the legend. Yeah, that is kind of hard to read. Like it might say Southfast Coast. Which might be a cooler name, though. It's like everybody in Mozambique owns Ferraris.

i had that problem too. Try saving your picture with a different name. Then upload the new file to photobucket. and then post the new pick here in the forums. it should work then.

Ah, the pictures have bee updated now and the Legend is much clearer. It doesn't seem to fit as much, but I'm just being picky. Look forward to giving this map a play or two.

I dislike the lion. It doesn't seem to fit well with the visual quality of the map. It's like putting photo-realstic images in a comic strip made for cartoons. Perhaps something less 'realistic' looking.

I wonder how it would look if the lion were run through a filter to make it look less realistic. Perhaps converting it to brushstrokes or something similar.
