With the new icons now introduced, because some are different shapes and/or have more detail the sizes have changed. This MAY cause some icons to look like they are not in the right province.

If you see any that you think are far enough out to be confusing then please post here and I will correct as we go.

If you are in any doubt, I strongly recommend the 'show details on hover' option that can be found in the My Account page (top right hand corner next to log in/out). This will ALWAYS tell you who is in which province (except for fog games ;) )

Ah - it all becomes clear. Stupid code is v eccentric. The problem is particularly visible with Ancient Med, but also with other maps.

I am fixing now. In testing I tried the classic map with all icons and it was OK, but the Ancient Med map shows up the problem clearly and has helped me find the 'eccentric' design.

Fixing now.

Constantinople - Fleet has to retreat, is completely covered by the army of Austria.
Aegean Sea may be a little out of place too - Again Turkey is the one retreating.

Versailles Map

Postby DipInRoad » 07 May 2014, 14:16

The Versailles map is new to me, and I'm not entirely au-fait with it yet. There are a few unit placements that I'm struggling with:

Image There's lots of room in Finland to move units up, allowing the star and province name to be visible.

Image There's lots of room in Croatia to move units north-west a bit to put them more firmly into Croatia.

Image This one's a bit tough. Units in London tend to obscure the star, so it can be difficult to know if London is an SC.

Image In Berlin, units tend to obscure the star so that, again, it can be difficult to know if Berlin is an SC or not.

Image Another example for Berlin.

Image There's lots of room in Cairo to move units down and right, allowing the star and province name to be visible.

Image There's lots of room in Constantinople to move the units down and right, allowing the star to be visible.

dip retreat alsace.gif

The British army retreating seems to be retreating from Switzerland, but in fact needs to retreat from Alsace.
"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne,
In the land of Mordor where the shadows lie."
