Diagonal bars pattern for neutral territories: 11/24/2015 10:50:10

Hey, I have been wondering for some time whether it could be technically possible to add new patterns for territories which are not explored. Right now they are covered with grey diagonal bars, which in my opinion is quite dull and unattractive. I dont think it would use much space or programming to add more custom patterns from which every map maker could choose proper one for his map. Eventually pattern type could be picked by every player in game settings to occur in all its games.







Of course this would require convincing Fizzer (perhaps via "UserVoice"), so the main question is do you believe it is worth trying?

theese are just few random examples from top page google search, just to picture eventual possibilities.

Nice idea, but it will most likely not go anywhere because of the rule about simplicity...

You may have the point, yet would such feature considerably complicate WL? If we let only map makers to choose patterns for thier maps, this should have no bias at game simplicity. Also if we allow only black-white patterns (like the last one presented, although I'd love to see my map covered with carrots ... 8]) there should be little danger that the map will be less visible, especially when this few extra patterns avaiable for map designers are validated by Fizzer.



p.s. if there are any forum moderators, could you change the title of this thread by changing word "neutral" to "unexplored"? I made a mistake with this title and it is conufusig now as the idea presented doesn't relate to neutral territories.

Maybe it would be simpler to have a set of two colours which represent fogged territories, which are chosen during map development (they could also have a variety of styles, eg. checked; striped at a different angle etc.)

That is close to what I am proposing

there could also be an option to define what colour the neutral territories should appear.
