Click on Your Spoil to Show the Region

Postby iAmCaffeine on Wed Apr 17, 2013 9:40 am

Concise description:
  • Basically, implement the ability to click on a spoil you own and it shows where that region is on the map

Specifics/Details:
  • Say I'm playing World 2.1 and I have a Madagascar spoil, if I click on my spoil it will in some way highlight that territory on the map

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Makes life easier for new players
  • Useful for learning new maps, particularly the more complicated ones about

Just an idea that popped into my head. It's nothing special but something that I think could be useful. Considering the highlights with the clickable maps I doubt it would be hard to implement a similar feature to display a particular region for a few seconds.

Doesn't BOB highlight the relevant territory when you put your mouse-pointer over the Spoils Card?

I wouldn't know, I don't use BOB. Either way, surely it's something that could easily be implemented into the site?

BOB does it. To be honest, I am surprised it was never implemented into the site. On the other hand, it does make things run slower.

Last time I tried to use OS\370 machine to do it, it wouldn't work. Nor would anything else for that matter, but I digress.
