I agree with the last 2 comments. I recently played a game on this map. It plays great, no complaint there, my only complaint is that I had to keep checking the bonuses, and it was kind of a pain because it doesn't jump out at you as quickly as it could.

n.n. wrote:i would like to leave the map unsigned - first because i do not think that is necessary nor i feel the need to sign my name or alias over such a beautiful map image :) and secondly - i have tried once and did not find the elegant solution to do this although maybe there could be one, i went back to my original feel that this is really not needed

appropriate info about the mapmaker(s) can be found in the map info database ...

I'd really suggest putting something onto the map itself too.... you can put something in the top-left corner using the same font as the eastings.northings, or could add a subheading underneath the map title...

I've got a couple of games going, look forward to them.

I'd also put some sort of signature on the map, or a logo/icon that can be yours. :)

Hi guys,

(You can add your signature to the map in due course - that's no reason to hold up the map in Beta when there are no gameplay issues)

Congratulations, n.n., on a job well done! A swift and smooth trip through Beta. It's gone by so fast, I still haven't played this map, but it's a handsome, straightforward map, which is no doubt why it's been quenched already.

It is a pretty good 1vs1 map---all my matches on it have been in that format. The upper bonus zones seem to come into play the most. So far, I don't think I've any games where the 'Lake bonus' comes into play.

For the record, it has been noted that there may be some concern over the naming of this map: viewtopic.php?f=127&t=134117&p=2947058#p2946615


Subject: Macedonian map?

the nature of my concern is the illegal use of the name macedonia while the oficial name of this country is still F.Y.R.O.M.
that problem keeps spreading out on the internet and in the common life,and its a rape of the greek history

i would be gratfull if the moderators discuss about this issue which is very sensitive.

oneEyedOldMan,

Many thanks for adding some clarity regarding your concern.

Maps on this site are community-developed. The mapmaking process is an arduous and lengthy one - and during map development, authors are expected to respond to concerns that the community raise. During the six months or so that the Macedonia map was in development (as far as I recall), nobody raised concerns about the naming of the map, and there was therefore no discussion regarding it. There are many areas of the world where political boundaries and region names are under dispute, and cartography (both int he real-world and for online world-domination games) can be fraught with controversy.

Had any objection to the map name been raised whilst the map was in development, then the author would have been expected to respond to these concerns. However, now that the map has been completed it falls to me (as Foundry Foreman) to act as an arbiter, and to decide whether the mapmaker should be asked to make any changes.

While you are correct in stating that "Macedonia" is not an officially recognised country, as far as i can discern, FYROM was only a provisional name that has generally been superceded by The Republic of Macedonia. While I am aware that there are political sensitivities to consider, map titles are usually designated to help people find any given map, and in this instance, I believe that "Macedonia" is more user-friendly than "Republic of..." or "Former Yugoslav...". I have duly noted your opinion, and will bear it in mind should there be further concerns raised with this regard.

I would warmly encourage you to lend your support to other maps that are currently in development, and can but apologise for the hostility that other members of the community have shown you.
