Include default neutral values in map images

Postby agentcom on Mon Apr 09, 2012 1:56 pm

Include the default neutral values on the map images in the following places:
  • The Map's page in the foundry
  • The map image accessible through Game lists, Game Finder and Start Game screens


How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • More than once, I looked through the map foundry to find out how many neutrals I'd be facing if I made an attack in a foggy game. Unless you parse through the XML, this information most of the time is not there. Instead, I have to hope that there is a sunny game that hasn't progressed too far that I can find through Game Finder.
  • If you're thinking that this isn't really a big deal, go play an AoR game and see how many different neutral values there are for territories out there beyond the few you can see in a foggy game.

Good suggestion. Note that having this information also would help new players on some maps, who are trying to read the log in a fog game to find out what's happening.

Thanks for all the support guys! As it has been a month since the last comment, I figured I'd bump this.

Another month goes by, so I thought I'd bring this back to the top. I hate having to go look through Game Finder results to find a sunny game in which the territory I want to see hasn't been attacked by anyone.

I support this suggestion as well. Perhaps you could talk to the foundry people as well, because that's where a part of this suggestion is gonna take place anyway. Not sure if it would help, but you can always try.

I also support this suggestion. It would just be another two images to load (one large, one small) for the gallery, and would let people get a jump on trying to learn maps that are best played foggy.
