Buenos Aires is misspelled as "Beunos Aires" in the code.

Did we ever have an actual coordinate check on this?

88's are on page 37 if you would like to check alignment. Whenever someone mentioned there was a centering issue I corrected it, though I suppose some could still be slightly off.

Thank you Peter.

The XML has been corrected and can be found here: http://h1.ripway.com/bjs309/_ClassicXML11.txt

(This may take some time to be updated, so fortunately it doesn't affect gameplay).

Perhaps bedub1 made one or more valid point. What would it take to have Shanghai and no Manila?

To me, it looks like (literally) half of them are off by 1 pixel, but I've never done a check before so I don't want to trust my eyes on this. Does anyone else see something similar?

It looks like the colour problems have arisen due to a recompression of the JPEG. The small map on page 1 of this topic has a size of 222213 bytes, while the one at http://maps.conquerclub.com/Classic.S.jpg has a size of 71405 bytes.

Shame on Lack! Why does he do that? Bad enough he forces the images to be GIF:s or JPG:s, and not PNG:s... but if the images need to be recompressed to 71 kb ... Hey, why bother with the graphics stamp if they're going to be crappified anyway?

I really hate the new map, why not release this as a new map instead of updating the old one?

I'm not sure this is the right place to send this message. please let me know if it isn't.

I can see that the classic map is a good map. I don't mind that classic is the default map. What i do mind is that my favourite map classic shapes has been removed.

Please reinstate classic shapes map as an optional map for players like me who don't like change.

Regards,

Rutger

Why don't you like change?

Everything changes, my friend. You can either fight it and be miserable, or go along with it and try to influence it to the direction that suits you best.

I agree. I wish I had come in here sooner, right after the release of v7 so I could have said no, wait, I like v6 better with regards to those 3 lines on the right....but hindsight is 20-20.

You can see my original post early in the thread

Thanks for ruining what had already gotten bad, but now is crap.

Here's some more pretension for your Latin

Lets all play nice. ;)

I think under the circumstances and limitations the map had to go through, the new Classic Map is a fine addition.

Indeed let's play nice.

I just feel this nesterdude is not expressing his opinions very nicely.

Here's an idea nester, why don't you try making a better map? After you've tried and know how much hard work it is to get a map in play, perhaps you'd learn to respect the work others have put in a bit more and express your opinions in a nicer tone.

I'm not saying you shouldn't be allowed to post your opinions, mind. I'm just saying there's a nicer way of giving feedback, than bashing all over the hard work others have done free of charge just for your (as in, you as a player) enjoyment in mind.

Whoah

First of all, just because you work hard on something, doesn't mean it's worth the effort. Par example: You slave for hours on a cake and it flops. Are we to commend you for your work? No.

I appreciate the time and effort. What I cannot appreciate is joining a Classic Art/Shapes game, and waking up to it being this travesty in the middle of one of my games.

As well, just because you do this for free, you volunteered for it. If you don't' like criticism, then don't volunteer.

I joined a map in which territories were touching, not something I'd look at in an American Airlines magazine.

Again, this is a bad map, bottom line.

But here the cake did not flop. Majority of CC considers the new classic great, and loves it. You're in the minority having your tantrums. So you don't have to commend the maker for his work, but the way you express your opinion is just not nice.

As well, just because you do this for free, you volunteered for it. If you don't' like criticism, then don't volunteer.


Criticism is one thing. Bashing all over someones' work just because you don't like it is childish. It's like an 8-year old having a tantrum, "I want it now, I want it exactly like this, I don't want it like that!! Waaaah!!!" Usually, by the time those 8-year-olds grow up and become adults, they learn how to put their personal feelings aside when expressing their opinions in a civilized manner.

Then again, your profile doesn't tell your age, so I'm not sure is it fair of me to expect you to behave like an adult?

What I cannot appreciate is joining a Classic Art/Shapes game

I joined a map in which territories were touching, not something I'd look at in an American Airlines magazine.


So if you have been playing shapes games, how is this any different? Except for being visually far superior, of course.
