Lackattack compresses the map images into 80% JPEG:s, and due to the way JPEG:s are compressed, the compression causes a certain amount of loss of colour saturation. Meaning that the colours will look more washed out than originally. I've tried to ask lackattack to let mapmakers handle the compression themselves, so they could at least compensate for the loss of colour on map images, which would be tremendously useful for this map. I think you can guess the reply I received.

Anyhow, I will try to improve the colours in the next update, but since lackattack uses a different software to perform the compression than what I have, I can't see how exactly it will turn out... so it's not an exact science.


Even just making them less pastel would help.

I am not sure what changes so much from the imbalance that you said but I have been in some fantastic 1v1 games of late. I don't know all the bonuses or too much of the map yet but the competitive balance has been super fantastic so kudos to you

Well, the colours turned out pretty ok I think. Let's hope everyone else is satisfied with them as well.

Last Call

If anyone has any other comments on tweaking the gameplay/graphics, now is the time to speak up! If there are no other concerns within the next couple of days, this map will be quenched.

It looks very sexy. Korea's been waiting a long time for a map.

It has been pointed out to me that Donghuyeo should be spelled Dongbuyeo... I'll get that corrected when I have the chance.

Meanwhile, if anyone who knows Korean can see any other glaring spelling errors, please post now, I don't want to make multiple updates just for spelling...

I'll have another look right now. Dongbuyeo is unfamiliar to me.
edit: it all looks good to me!

Apparently Dongbuyeo would translate to "East Buyeo" which makes sense to me. "Donghuyeo" didn't bring any search results on google, so I have to assume Dongbuyeo is the correct sp.

Yeah Dongbuyeo definitely sounds better. I wasn't even disputing that but everything else really looks ok ;)

I vote no. I'm still not happy with the legend, which is unclear and cryptic, and the colors and territories - it all looks like shades of greyish brown to me. Maps should be playable without Bob, don't you think?

Anyway, it's clear that I'm in the minority (at least vocal-wise) so as long as that's the case I'll shut up about it. I just think it's a shame that now that Korea finally gets a map it is one that I won't be able to play.

Cheers,

maybe this has been mentioned and explained already, but why is there chinese characters on a korean map, shouldn't korean characters be used instead?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hangul

Hangul,[nb 1] the Korean alphabet, is the native alphabet of the Korean language. It is a separate script from Hanja, the logographic Chinese characters which are also sometimes used to write Korean. It was created in the mid-15th century, and is now the official script of both North Korea and South Korea and is co-official in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture of Jilin Province, People's Republic of China.
