A map of Portugal, the country. It does a decent job of staying true to the indigenous names of areas. Currently the map is being held up by comments about the circles and names touching. Nothing New



Strange, 5 days ago, nothing new and needing graphics update... now quenched? This post is to mention that we were discussing some suggestions to the maker in the Portuguese forum, even why not many Portuguese speakers have a good, fluid English.

I (and some guys, mostly Portuguese) wouldnt like to see it quenched as it is now, so, what to do? Request a revamp? Not wanting to be rude, just letting you know.



we (Portuguese people...) don't really like the graffics of the map... there isn't any Portuguese simbol at all.. it is a Portugal map... The portugal letters could be in the flag's colours... the map could have a flag or some portuguese simbol... and the gameplay is not very good...

This may not be the most graphically appealing map out there, but I think it's perfect for a general CC map. I've always been a fan of the no-frill's maps. I love the original Brazil, and kinda wish it wasn't being revamped. This map just hit's you in the face - at first glance, it's obvious what all the territories / country's are, where the borders & attack lines are, and what the bonus's are.

I got some of the same criticism's for my Italy map - It didn't represent the country enough. I toyed around with adding the Leaning tower of Pisa, Mona Lisa, Roman Columns, Pompeii, the Vatican, Castel del Monte, Michelangelo's David.... but it just cluttered up the map.

Again, nice work gimil - sometimes simplicity is preferred.

i don't understand it guys. you say you've been commenting this map in your portugese forum. well it's been in the final forge status for 2 months not to mention all the time it spent before the forge. why didn't you say something?

i don't speak portugese but i studied italian and that helps a bit. so i went in your subforum to see what's the problem.

on the 1st of september sioux posted the updated map that was finished. that was a month ago.

then marvaddin came with a long post complaining the islands are too big and make portugal seem small, complained about the bonuses and something about the legend. then other people agreed. why didn't any of you guys come and post here? why wait a month and then after the map is quenched you come and complain? :roll:

this is stupid. if you dont visit the foundry regularly then how do you expect me to solve what ever problems you have? The priorite was always the poteguse player who came in and commented. If you not happy now you have only yourself to blame

Controversy, it's ok with any country since the map maker wasn't from that country that you're going to get some people who think it doesn't represent the country, I've gotten a bit of both with my france map, and I think since andy said quench it's too late for them.

For myself, I didnt post because I was not wanting to be offensive to Portuguese people. I think they should have took a bigger part in the project... lets say I wouldnt overrun them. AND, anyway, according to the news I have posted before, I wouldnt bet it would be quenched so quickly, would you?

If its too late, then ok, but I really cant understand really whats the point having a Portugal map if Portuguese people dislike it. National symbols? Do you think that is really visible? Its in 10th plane, and its in Spanish ground. Even title is blue... how could you choose this colour instead of national colours?

Well, I dont have any powers in the foundry, in fact, Im not taking it too seriously recently (by the way, Im even getting accostumed to add maps to my never play list recently). And I think I read like 10% of this thread, but looks like you really are a bit stubborn about improve the map. But lets forget it then. If it sucks, it sucks, and isnt your fault only. Portuguese people deserved a bad map too, for being so silent. So, maybe a revamp later.

(lol, at least its not my country... maybe we can do a Scotland map in revenge, lol, with invisible national symbols over england... maybe even english symbols by mistake... Oh, and the title in Portuguese colours) :D

I didnt (and still dont) want the pictures in hte map. That was what the community wanted.

believe me i tried to use the flag colors. but do you think that hte portugese would be happy with there flag in paste colors? they were to strong to included. Blue was my last option but it was the only color i could realisticly fit

Maybe you should read the full thread before passing judgement. I find it offencive and disrespectful to come in here once a maps complete and and bad mouth the cartographers work.

However a revamp is something thats came accross my mind becasue portugal was my 1st exprience with photoshop and im not 10x better. Maybe ill let this settle a few months and see what happens.

I was trying to convince him to still add some national art, once it would make the Portuguese guys happy... well, stubborn is a word, huh? :wink:
