Aye, Hong Kong and Discworld definitely need a graphics upgrade. I'd put Tamriel on that list, too.

I disagree with WWII Ardennes completely. It is the perfect looking map.

Crossword is probably the ugliest. It should be redone with a '3D' feel to it maybe.

to me it isnt , it lacks any symbols of the region and it has grids type on it which i dont find appealing.

Also Ireland needs a serious revamp the map is tiny by CC standards and is just bland.

Oh! You know what's in desperate need of a revamp? Luxembourg. Good God.

The only thing I dislike about Luxembourg is the size of it. The small could easily become the large map with an even smaller small map produced.

In fact, a lot of the maps that are small could have this done.

Doodle Earth
Cyprus
San Marino
Most of the USA map pack

And maybe a few more.

That would be a good idea. It might make playing on a phone a more pleasant experience. (I presume that most tablets have enough pixels that scrolling is not necessary.)

The Island of Doom fits into this category most categorically.

It clearly has some very original/interesting gameplay, but even the small version won't fit on my screen. It's the sheer distance between each region which makes the map this way, but what can you do ? Otherwise it's fine.

Complain, bitch, moan, grow angry, throw a hissy, pull all suport from the maps you like, threaten to quit the site if you do not get your way. Lots of things really, but none very constructive unless you get into the threads early.

Of the maps you mentioned I only agree with you on Discworld, Extreme global warming, Montreal and Tamriel. I'm okay with the others staying as they are. However there are a couple of other maps I think are in desperate need of a rewamp.

Africa
Rail USA
Mongol Empire
Midkemdil
Land And Sea
Macedonia
Gilgamesh
Crosswords
Conquer Man
Berlin 1961
AoG for President of the World!!
I promise he will put George W. Bush to shame!
