You like big maps?

I've got a gigantic map I made. I think it plays well, but the game is v-e-r-y different when you've got a map that's many times larger than your monitor and consists of more provinces than you can shake a stick at. It's 4400 x 3020 pixels, 255 territories and 14 continents. Some of the continents a...

Where can I upload new maps I've created?

Is there someplace here that I can upload maps? I've created a few that I think others would enjoy trying.

I agree - it would be a huge improvement if one could upload custom maps and then allow users to choose to play one of them online.

I'm not complaining, just have grown tired of the "Australia strategy", if ya know what I mean. :D

Ah, OK, that fixed it. Thanks. I see that it seems you can have the map scroll either horizontally, or vertically - but it doesn't seem to allow *both* in the same map (if you add both scroll=horizontal and scroll=vertical, it just reads the first one and ignores the second). Is that possible? If so...

Nope, not on Pocket PC (don't own one of those) I've got a custom map I created that's about 3400 pixels wide x about 2000 pixels high. It's fairly large, even for my 20" monitor running at 1600 1200. I get about 1/4 of the map on my monitor. This particular map has 13 continents (including several ...

Feature request: Display number of armies on Rollover

If you have the option to "Show armies as graphics" turned on, it gives you a good strategic view at a glance. But with more than a few armies there, it soon gets nearly impossible to figure out the specific number. Sure, you can turn off this option, but then you just get a number, without the help...

Feature request: Highlight the territories being attacked

Especially when playing multiple computer opponents (and especially on larger maps), it's not always obvious which territory is attacking which (even when it *is* on the screen :wink: ). How about "highlighting" the territory being attacked (and maybe the territory the attack is coming from) by brie...

Really? I am unable to get this to work. Just to clarify - imagine a "classic" world map, with Kamchatka and Alaska connected off the east/west edges of the map. But the map size is larger than your monitor. That is, you can't see both Kamchatka and Alaska on the screen at the same time - you have t...

Well, I'd say it would be preferable to have it autoscroll rather than to have 90% of what's going on to take place off the screen (which is what happens now) - that makes it really, really hard to follow the game! How about this... Provide a user setting: "Autoscroll to battles" on or off. Off = Ex...

Action off the screen?

I have some questions about a problem I'm having with maps that are larger than the game window. Here's the issue: When playing against the computer, battles take place off the screen. When it's a computer turn, all sorts of things quickly take place, often off the visible portion of the map, and I ...

Map edge question - territories and wrap around?

I've created a large custom map, which is larger (wider) than my monitor. I have a territory near the western edge of the map which connects to a territory near the eastern edge of the map - similar to Alaska and Kamchatka in the classic "World" map. Although I've set up the "connections" in the map...

Maps, map editor questions

I recently purchased Conquest and have been enjoying it. I've started experimenting creating my own maps using John Fowler's map editor, and have had no trouble with smaller maps. Now I've started work on a much larger map, and I'm getting errors and running into some apparent limitations in the map...
