I wouldn't want to change the xml. You would have to click within a radius of the central coordinate, according to my plan.

Clickable Maps?

Postby Great Pretender on Thu Aug 16, 2007 7:41 pm

I thought it would be better that if instead of scrolling through the text of the countries you just click on the ones you want to attack/fortify from or to. I think this would make it much easier for people who don't know how to play the game and it would also help all the silly mistakes you make.

This thread is more than a year old....
I doubt this will ever be added to CC, cause of the plugin.

I have been thinking about this improvement ever since my first game here. I had assumed that the maps would be clickable. Why not? This is 2008!

Instead of programming some region or dot in each territory, wouldn't it be easier just to convert the digit or digits representing the number of armies in each region to a link? The clickable area would be the number only, which would not involve cartography at all, neither future nor retroactive, since (I think) all attackable regions necessarily have army numbers in them anyway.

I'm not a programmer, but I would be willing to bet that converting the numbers to links would be a VERY simple solution to this quandary, and the time and energy saved to everyone on the site by having clickable gameplay would be a VAST improvement to the site overall.

Wow - an intelligent post...

At the moment the numbers are generated into a PNG file by the server which is really quick...

I talked to Lack about creating a load of Divs at the set co-ordinates (as BOB does for it's hovers) instead of using the image...

He liked the idea in principal - however we were unsure as to whether or not this would put excessive load on the server creating all the Div's etc.

If Lack were to change to this method - then clickable maps as part of "vanilla" CC would be easily possible.

I find compliments more meaningful when they come from people who are not computer geeks.

Then you should be complimented - as if you knew me - you would know that I am not a geek.

That's a shame, since the plugin is a greasemonkey script, and not everyone uses Firefox.

its a shame that everything you need is free as well. also is another shame that the CC homepage says
This website will not work on some outdated web browsers. For best results use Firefox.
