I'm really surprised that wicked thinks this is difficult to read. First off I think we should all know what the middle east looks like and the general potions of all the countries anyway. But on top of that there are words faded into the backgrounds of every continent. And the water is definitely a different enough color that it shouldn't cause mistakes like wicked described. Is wicked really having these problems or is she trying to play the part of what she thinks people will have problems with?

yes, I saw the names on the backgrounds.. obviously a sign the browns are indistinguishable. ;-) but will they be visible on the small version with the numbers and number circles covering them? Is there a small version showing the number circles and numbers? I saw the one with numbers, but it didn't have the circles... are we getting away from that now? And I still think the text is hard to read on the small version.

perhaps I was looking at the wrong link? I just saw where someone had posted this for the small map and looked there: http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r118 ... RSv212.jpg

If the size is that on page 37, then the text is more readable there.

If the page 37 maps are the final ones, then those look OK IF there's not going to be number circles, so ignore what I said. ;-) The links posted on the previous page threw me - apologies. I'm still not crazy about the text, but can live with it.

ONE suggestion now though.... change Israel & Palestine... to what it was, Israel & PTO. It's too long on the map and would be better abbreviated for the dropdown menus and game log text anyway.

Oh that does explain a bit. Yeah page 1 being final forge would be bad.

I kinda fought for army circles a while back and was shot down. :oops:

no it wasn't on page 1, it was a couple pages back, which was the most recent page when I first read the thread. thanks for humoring me. :lol: after some of the recent maps, I thought the maps might need a women's touch. :wink:

As far as the Israel/Palestine thing goes, it is abbreviated on the drop-downs (and in the .xml) to Israel and PT. It just reads the long way on the map as per some rather lengthy debate when I first created it. :P

I just have a quick question. Why does this map have to go through the forges but why didn't World 2.1?

it wasnt so much of a total revamp as some bug fixes and a few name changes...keyogi's done a whole new graphics set so it needed more of a process.

geeze, like, i hate to piss people off or anything, but i'm surprised at the way people (especially seasoned members) jump in and start re-questioning everything that has already been debated back and forth. Not that things shouldn't be requestioned, but everyone has already reached a consensus about the things wicked and gilligan brought up. I don't get it.

The Final Forge period has concluded for the Middle East REVAMP. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for live play (barring any Lack vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

Very nice. I probably won't play this one much either though.
