I think it would be very helpful if I had jpeg's of the different maps to refer to when discussing strategy with fellow clan members. These pic's would need to have country names and sizes detailed to be effective. Is this something the developers could do? Maybe just post the jpegs on the net for viewing? The idea of printing them out and posting them on my wall also occurs to me.

Does anyone else think this would be helpful? If so, please post saying so and maybe if the dev's see enough interest they will make this happen.

Thanks,
Brashen

I've often thought of doing something like this myself, but haven't managed to get myself to do so yet. It would certainly be very helpful, especially when discussing strategy with clanmates.

a map with the grid showing would be great, i've tried todo it in a screenshot, but i can only do it by zooming out all the way and it gets too hard to see some of the coutnries in enough detail to see the zones.

Have you tried to use MAN-feature SV/S (Strategic View/Screenshot) by pressing hotkey F4 (and then pressing Enter for screenshot)?

Voila, a map of Emerald!

If you want something more detailed, let me know and I'll try to make it.

In case anyone is interested in logical map view - here are the files. They are not artistic, but can be used for strategical and tactical planning.

Edit: they are packed with WinRAR. You can download it here:

@Artanis

Colour coding the numbers on the map too would be a good idea. Or did the game add those?

I added pretty much everything except the terrain. I tried colorcoding the numbers at first, but the green was virtually invisible. It might work on Bizarria, Crateus, Antarcticus, etc, but would have been a real bitch on Emerald.

Sky Keeper: these maps are awesome!

Nice maps...at least they were once I figured out what a RAR file was.

I just wanted to thank Artanis. That was great the way you stepped up and helped out. I'm sure your time is valuable, and I just wanted to say thanks. I'm sure there are others who feel the same.

Thanks Brashen! To be honest, this is something I've been meaning to do for a while...you've just given me the motivation to go through with it :D



And without further ado, the tenth of the ten maps...Twin Islands:

Yeah, he's been talking about this ever since the Strategic View was added.
