Coleman what KEYOGI meant was rotate the the map into russia so it can be bigger, that way they don't waste all that room in russia, he didn't mean rotate the entire thing :roll:

Perhaps one of you could demonstrate how best to do that without screwing up the whole map.

I agree with you all world 2.1 is only fun because of it's size, like if you look at doodle earth (just an example) and you are down to 1 territory,
you hardly feel intimidated because you own a percentage of the map and in a escalating game you can still lose,
but if you look at world 2.1 and it's an escalating game your enemy might through in the sack if he's down to one place instead of using the cheapness of escalating cards to his advantage

I agree also...Have said this in DIM's map thread as well. Just a point to note mibi and coleman. Your Supermax prison map does not meet the size guide lines either!!!

If people want to play this map they should be contributing ideas to help qwert work with the foundry and the guidelines, not against them.

If all people want to do is complain about the guidelines, do it in an appropriate place like the The Final Say on Map Size Announcement.

I want to create these map,but with these rules is imposible to create map in these size(640px small).
I just can continue work in these dimension(850px) ofcourse i can ask people do i continue work in these map.I realy dont know how to shrink map to be readabile or to people can se terittory in others dimensions(640px).
Also i give mine complain in "The Final Say on Map Size" that these is very restricted rules,and nobody can create map with 100 terittory in these dimension.

For now we are firm standing on our guidelines. Maybe in the future they will change, and we will come back and look at the arguments for and against. Hence the reason this will stay open, so we don't clutter other important threads with the discussion.

well like andy say maybe in the future these map be alove to play,so i will work in these map on dimension 850x500,and hope that some day will be open for game.

The 'slight' rotation you did is awful.

I know how loath you are to go through another massive thing like you did with Eastern Front. But maybe you should just keep working on the original map and the position it was in. If a moderator stops by and says something like "you need to do whatever to get within size constraints" or whatever, just acknowledge them. Say "Okay." and then keep moving on like they never stopped by.

I'd like to see where that gets this.
