That's overthinking it.

Besides, to be actually accurate with the "Polar Route",
-the Sao Paulo-Dakar connection should be curving down,
-the Anchorage-Vancouver should be curving up,
-the Edmonton-Montreal should be curving up,
-the Chicago-Los Angeles should be curving up,
-the Bogota-Sao Paulo should be curving down...
That's just the Americas...

Let's leave it. It's not worth changing part of the map to be accurate and not changing everything, and changing everything would definitely not be worth it.

Lets just get beta. Anyone that's not happy is just being pedantic. I can't see anything wrong at all. Well done Sully =D>

As I was trying to say before - the airline routes were an inspiration for the map, but in the end this map serves a different purpose. I want the connections to be clear and look good, as much as possible, to make the game more user friendly. If there are issues with regard to those two objectives I would be happy to investigate more. :) Thanks again to everyone for the support and critiques! It is truly appreciated.

I am, of course, on the quench train, too. Can't wait to play the map.

That being said, one random "do we need to idiot-proof this thing further" question just popped into my mind... are the colors for Asia and Oceania too close? It's actually not an idiot-proof question, really; it's more of a "has anyone done the color-blind" test one? Yes, I realize that anyone who has played the classic map should know which city is which, but... it's probably worth checking to see how similar Bangkok and Jakarta look to those that are color blind. If it's a problem, switching North or South America's colors with Oceania's should do the trick. If it's not a problem, well...

I don't think there's anything left that should be holding up this map. A January 1st launch date might be a pipedream, but it sure would be nice...

Coordinates for Edmonton and Dakar could go 1 px to the left, I think.

After that:

Thanks saaimen. This was already fixed and updated so the XML link previously posted was still the most current and accurate.

Sweet! New map is up and it changed when I was doing an escalating sweep, which threw me off a loop for a second trying to adjust but still completed the sweep and got my swords back too! Good day all round!

Grats Sully.

haha! The sudden change threw me for a loop as well, and I had a good idea it was coming! ;)

Thanks everyone, it's nice to see it well liked (at least in the first few moments of being live)

To commemorate this moment, here is a bunch of crap that I made which got cut out due to the power of the wise foundry members (of course it was never quite such a hodge podge, but I also made many more titles and legends not included below). Yay foundry members for steering the design so well!

I saw the message it was updated, had to go check it out.

I still think it's retarded in order to see all the maps you first click on "start a game" and then on "browse maps". There should be a link to "map gallery" right below "game finder" or something....but on to the map.

It looks okay, except for Novosibirsk. Those 3 lines, 1 running all the way down to manila, is very poorly done.

Looking back through the revisions, R6 looks to be where it went from "Awesome start" to "now we are going down hill".

This is just my honest opinion, the new map is hard to look at. I think you did a beautiful job, but having the continents all the same color plus all the lines going everywhere, well, maybe it will grow on me.

--edit --

bring back the old classic shapes, please!
