Update - Ready for testing and quality assurance:

https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=38676









Wanted to get your opinions on this, I think it would be good to visually update some of the most-played maps. Some of the borders are a little different in this version, but everything is effectively the same (no new or lost borders).

Maybe change up the bonuses to keep it original?

Not really what I was going for, I just get tired of playing on maps with black backgrounds.

Don't you think this is some form of stealing? You're basically making an exact copy of Fizzer's map but with some graphics added, but no real new strategic value or originality. I doubt he will accept this, even more so because you did not ask for his permission.

I actually messaged Fizzer asking if he would be interested, he told me to post it as my own and see what the community thinks.

All I would like to do is graphically update some maps to make them more interesting, but I won't go forward with it if it isn't wanted.

Edit: I don't care about the credit, I'd be happy just to gift the update over, all I want is to give something to the community.

You cant just take someone's map and make it better. It should be up to the mapmaker whether he allows you to, or if he will do it himself.

He already said he messaged Fizzer. You guys need to chill on the map copyright infringement crap.

I disagree with Moros and Apollo. If someone remakes your map and does a better job, then up your game. That's just what I think.

It'll be super unoriginal though

It looks a lot better like that.
And you should take credit for the graphics btw, since that's what you added.

I like the background, feels like this has potential :)
Always ask the original map maker imo, but you already did so that's good :)

You're missing a connection line in Philippines btw.

Im not sure that Ive got you right. You improve the svg file for fizzer,so that he can update his map?

Definitely an improvement!

With Warlight expanding turning the "official" maps into improved styles like this would be a good idea.

I should have been more clear in my first post :)

This is really just a test, I'm learning how to work with GIS data, comparing projections, and what have you. QGIS has some... interesting quirks.

Made a rectangular version, I like the projection more than the Robinson I was using earlier. Also playing around with a few ideas for 'framing' the image, that was the biggest problem with the first version, I can't see any way to get rid of the feeling that it's just floating there.

(Not sized to fit until everything is laid out first)


@Ranek that was my original idea, but it looks like I'll just upload a new version, and where it goes from there depends on the reception.

This looks awesome. Totally agreed about black backgrounds getting tedious after a while.

Alright: https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=38676

I need to offset the bonus borders to double width, but other than that it should be getting close. It's very late and I probably missed some connections, so I'd be grateful if anybody could check it over.

Note to self, Atlantic, not Antlantic :P

Alaska doesn't belong to Canada ;)

Great Plains <-> Midwest
Gulf Coast? in yours they look like conencting, but they don't do in original
Same for Xinjiang <-> India



Will you fix the overlapping borders?

Why do you work with GIS, are you a geo scientist?

Background is the on good thing tbh. You need to fix your borders otherwise this isn't an improvement.

@Timinator - Thanks. I've fixed those connections, and adjusted those borders for the next upload. And yes, fixing the overlapping bonus borders is the next step.

@Ranek - It's just easier and more accurate than drawing/tracing everything by hand.

@Apollo - Of course, that's the next step, already working on it.

Thanks :)
