Re: Territories switched on new British Isles map (BUG)

Postby MrBenn on Wed Jan 21, 2009 5:34 pm

The problem was caused by a slight change in the territory order in the XML. A corrected version of the XML has been submitted to lackattack, and will be uploaded as soon as he gets it.

Thanks for your patience,

MrBenn ;-)

Also, when u attack oxon on the new map, where u select which place u want to attack, it has oxfordshire instead of oxon, and this probably happened to other places as well

Look at the key … Oxon = Oxfordshire

I went from really liking this map, to not wanting to play it. The colors are all washed out. There is little contrast between the lettering and the background. The entire thing is 'whitish.'

The old one was great.

It´s fixed now, and all armies are back to where they are supposed to be.

Thanks. :)

I agree that it is too pale, but it's not bad when you get the armies on it. :) It's also easier to tell where the territory borders are than on the old one.

Very nice job!

In case no one has yet mentioned (very long thread), "oxon" is still listed as "oxfordshire" in the xml.

Why Revamp a map that had nothing wrong with it?

Jesus, guys, you don't have to constantly fool with EVERYTHING.

And you wonder why you're losing members....

I think overall more users like the revamp over the original. There's the nostalgia thing to get over, but the old one got many many complaints on how hard it was to tell borders.
