Ouch, lol. I just never got used to the lines joining the terts in the classic map. I feel like having the borders, however ugly the map may be, would make it seem more like the board game. I will probably never know though.

sorry to say, I enjoy classic art, more than WWII Europe which is overdone, and not made for players as much as mapmakers.

Next time, keep it more simple, and people will enjoy playing it. I respect the art of it, but Im here to play risk, not look at pretty pictures.

Im amazed at how many map makers miss this, and ruin lots of maps, in the effort to make them better. You are even bragging about it here, oblivious to what people actually like, and knocking those who did a great job of providing just that.

Have you ever seen landgrab? Here: http://landgrab.net/landgrab/Home I think this site is better for you. No fancy graphics, just like you want.

And you know full well that shapes and art where made quickly to fill the void after the original classic map was taken down.

Neither where great maps, we all know that, but both maps went around the foundry for the above reason. But like art, I would not mind a few games on this one for nostalgia reasons.

i dont mind for temporary maps, but for all these crap people dont need to be awarded, especially for classic crap. I only can hope that these kind of work never hepend again, and that all work you do in map foundry.
If i do these ,i will refuse any award, because these dont deserve any reward.

Im sorry aafitz, but maps like Classic Crap(art), simple maps with zero graphic, are prohibited to be made in regular work,and all map makers who will even try to create similar style are blocked right in beginning,in map foundry. If you want more maps like these, then you need to make some suggestion and to find many voters, to decrease many high standards in map making. If you succeed, then existence of Foundry foreman, will not be need, because everybody will be in position to make these type of maps.

So in a sense, qwert has proven this thread is true. CC is not what it used to be as maps like these will never be made again.

I did get your joke/point, Gillipig, It's just that I'm looking for the "feel" of the board game. I'm inclined to believe that the Classic Art map would capture this "feel" better than the available classic map.
The classic map is a bit too spider-webby for me to get that old time feeling.
