Hasn't been abandoned, but I started this revamp in the week between my last week of work and my first week of school, which is why it made so much progress so quickly. Now that i'm back in school I don't really have time to spend on this. I'll get back to it eventually.

Great revamp job, keep going.
About mountain the most disturbing is their flat bottom, maybe the bottom should fade a bit in the bg.
Could you post a version with 3 digits armies on it ?

P.S. drop that stupid idea of attending at school ;) , virtual world is the place to be :ugeek: , just joking.

This map has been moved into retirement.

It would appear that this revamp has stalled, as there have not been any updates for some time.

If the mapmaker wants to continue, then one of the CAs will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system ;-)

Hey guys. I've been through a couple harddrives since I was working on this, so i'm pretty sure the photoshop files are long gone.


Personally I think the last version I had, while not perfect, is still a huge upgrade from the original. So if you want to use it, you're more than welcome. I suppose I could make some new better mountains layered over the image, but thats about all I can do.

Is anyone jumping on this? I kind of think that the Ancient Greece map needs a revamp pretty bad... Mr K., are you willing to work on this any more and change a few things or are you offering this version as the only alternative?

Even if the originals have been lost, this new map as it is is leagues better than the old Ancient Greece, IMO.

I'm not really capable of making too many changes to the last iteration of the map. The layered file I was using to make it is long gone I believe, so I theres not much I can do to change it. Also I don't really have the time these days to go through the whole map-making process anymore.

So I'm willing to make a few changes (though i'm limited in what I can change), but basically i'm offering it as is. I remember a lot of people hated these mountains, so I can probably layer some better ones over the current ones.

edit: I saw someone had a good suggestion about making a small line to make the minotaur heads more clear. I can probably manage that without having the original layered version as well.

So.. no then? Personally I think the newest version is leagues ahead of the old one, and I think it's definitely at the point where theres no real HUGE complaints left (other than the mountains, which can be changed).

Yeah, the latest version is much better than the current one. Even if it isn't complete, the possibility of swapping the old one with this one should be suggested to lack.

Hey everyone. Long ago I lost the layered photoshop file I was working from to make this, so I basically have no ability to make any changes to this. I brought this up before a few years ago and someone told me I still had to make some kind of update in order for it to be even considered? So here we are, I updated the mountains. I just put new better looking ones over top of the old ones.

I really don't have time or the ability to make any changes to this thing, but I think as it stands it is a huge upgrade from my original and I imagine most would agree.. take it or leave it I guess..

I don't understand why this wasn't uploaded before.

Maybe because there was no small version?

This looks 100x better than the version we have now.

Let's get this to Lack!

Small version is of course just a matter of resizing, which i'll happily do when/if there is a go-ahead.

This one *is* the updated version ;)

viewtopic.php?p=3936431#p3936431

Unfortunately as I say in the post a few above it, i'm pretty limited in what I am actually able to do as I don't have the original file, all I can do is play around with what is already there.

Sorry Mr. K, what I meant in my post was that I'd like to see an updated version of the map available for play, not demanding you to show an update in topic! :D My apologies for being unclear.

The colors and the patterns are a lot better than the old ancient Greece. I like the dancing Indians and the ships in the water, I think they add to the map. The mountains are definitely sweet looking. I am a big fan of this map, I have played a lot of games here and I think an update would be nice.
