Hello again, fellow mapmakers and mapusers!
Almost a year has passed since I published my "Vvardenfell cities" map. It was not my first attempt at mapmaking - previous several attempts happened two years ago and were never published. Now I am thinking about making another try - for the map was a failure, after all, and I am not satisfied with it.
The question is - should I make the new map a new "version" of the old one, or a completely new "map family" that will coexist with the old one? Or probably I should simply delete the old map family and create a new one - not as a new "version" of the old map, but from scratch?
I do not want to fill Warlight with the history of my studies at mapmaking, but I am not really sure if I can delete a map, that has already been made public a long time ago...
This is the old map here:https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=58410
Here you can see the alpha-version of the new map:https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=63547
Here are the main changes that I am planning:
1) I have already deleted 11 city tabs and managed to add only 1 city tab instead :D (The new tab is for the Ghostgate). I think it is big progress! :D
2) Deleted the Silt Strider transportation net. Now the "Transport" tab features only one teleportation system (the same that was in the last version of the map - I probably won't change it).
3) I am planning to remake the territorial division of the island to reduce the number of narrow places and add at least some shadow of strategical value to the map. I've already started working on the southern parts of the island.
4) I am planning to simplify the bonus system. Already deleted the "Treaties with the daedra" bonus tab (in the lower part of the map).
