Ahoy, Fellow members of CC!
For those of us who have been here some time, the loss of the Classic Map was a sad day. The invasion of the Shapes was something that not even HG Wells or Arthur Clark had foreseen. From the pit of despondency, an elite squad of mapmakers were thrown together to assemble a replacement, and thus Classic Art was born! (Although Turtle World was almost a strong contender)
The time has finally come for Classic Shapes to be reinvigorated and be given the facelift it so strongly deserves and needs. The mapmaking elite - in consultation with the foundry moderators and lackattack himself - have given the green light for the map-formerly-known-as-world-cities
to be revamped as the New Classic Map
There is still a little bit of work to be done before the Revamped Classic will emerge from the Foundry Forge - please feel free to head over and add your support or thoughts while we hammer things out. in the meantime, let us take a trip down memory lane and embrace the future:Link to higher-resolution image (2.5MB)
Edit: Just to clarify, it is only Classic Shapes that is being revamped and replaced. Classic Art will remain alongside the new Classic - at least in the short term.Link to Official Classic Revamp thread: http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=468&t=97975
