Jesus, guys, you don't have to constantly fool with EVERYTHING.

And you wonder why you're losing members....


I think overall more users like the revamp over the original.


I think the Man in the Moon will come down and sing me a song if I just dance harder for him. But that doesn't make it so.
Only British Isles game I'm in right now is a 6 player game, and 4 of us have already commented on not liking the change.
The other two haven't chatted since the change took place. That's a 66.666% disapproval rating so far.

There's the nostalgia thing to get over, but the old one got many many complaints on how hard it was to tell borders.


There's already an easy fix to that, clicking "Larger Map".....

Not that it matters all that much- but I would just like to phone my two cents in and say that I love how the map looks now. British Isles was the first map I learned after Classic and it therefore remains in my top three maps of all time. Though I didn't have a problem with the other version, I love the new version in every way. Not until I saw this work of art did I realize how outdated and messy the original truly was.

Thanks for making one of my favorite maps even better :)

The new British isles map is not good for me.

The colors are worse than the ORIGINAL British isles (too pale for my taste),
The names are changed and harder to remember,
The boundaries of the territories are more fragmented,...

Maybe everything is more correct and more technically better, but ...

... I URGE YOU TO RETURN THE ORIGINAL MAP

I hate it when people post things like this. They shouldn't. Maybe this topic can be closed?
The revamp is really, really good, gimil. Thank you, well done.

It's got nothing to do with arrogance. It's all about respect.
gimil has been on this revamp for over a year. The topic has been here for the whole time aswell. And the map wasn't quenched before all discussions were cleared up. If he hates this map so bad, first of all he should have come here to comment on the drafts. And now that it's quenched he's too late and pissed about it. That's not the way to go.
I don't mind people having a different opinion. But you could come here and say

Jesus, guys, you don't have to constantly fool with EVERYTHING.

And you wonder why you're losing members....


Mainly because the original map was a geographical nightmare full of mistakes.

And because the original artist wanted it revamped.

Would it help people if the territory name for Oxfordshire was renamed to something like 'Oxon (Oxfordshire)' in the XML?

I believe we're too easy on folks :)
Why can't they just read the legends? Same here as in Europa as in practically every Foundry thread I've been following...
