Clickable Maps *Pending*

Postby ADAM TJ on Wed Jan 31, 2007 10:03 pm

is there a possibility that in addition to the scroll down list of countries that can be selected, the country could be selected by clicking on its respective dot?

If it is applicable that is very good thinking! Great idea!

I saw this suggested a long time ago, and it would make gameplay much better. However the programming would be MUCH more difficult so on a feasability stand point there are many suggestions I would like to see implemented first.

It would also probably make map creation much more difficult because the cartographer would somehow have to section off the region that makes up each country, and set it so if you click there it selects the country.

Hmmmm, I see.

Not all maps have dots for army shadows, so perhaps it could be a region surrounding the number? That might be programmable, I have no idea how hard it would be. I suppose it would even prevent more mistakes because you'd be clicking on the number of armies you want and attacking the other persons armies directly. No chance of messing up all the similar names in hong kong or the two really close ones in phillippines!

The numbers themselves are text placed on the map image - making these HREF's would be fairly simple I would've though - a bit of coding to go through and apply it to all of them.

Will we also get the option of using the current system? Although the clickable system sounds promising and positive, I won't know until i have used it whether it is better or worse than the current system (which is fine and allows you to check everything nicely)

It is a bit premature to discuss the details, but I was going to start off with something like this:

You click on the center of a territory and a little bubble pops up. It would have a description and links depending on the stage of play

Code: Select all
Kamchatka                          Kamchatka
YP_legend                          YP_legend
[attack from] [attack to]          [deploy]


and then clicking on the links would auto-select the old-fashioned picklists below.

Sounds good - Attacking though - surely you would know which you are going to do? (Obviously if you click on your territory then you want to "attack from" and if you click on an enemy country then you would be "attack to"?

Good point!

You would sometimes need two links for fortify from / fortify to.

that would complexify the xml wouldnt it? on landgrab, you have to define every corner of the territory to make that work.
