Community USForum Map - Rev #334
« on: September 11, 2012, 10:26:41 PM »
Faih you do not get special permissions on this map so don't go dictating what kip/whoever else can and can't have.

For brief histories and stuffs:

I do and don't support this. This map will likely just be everyone tired of switching things around (even if they haven't been doing that) and it'll end up being the exact same map as fiah has. Except someone might change their nations around again because they can't seem to get them the way they want.

but people changing their nations again is fine. as long as others don't bitch about it because it isn't their nation to decide about.

well if fiah doesn't mind his nation being slightly edited (only for size, not for shape or anything else), then we can set up a poll if it should be resized. if fiah does mind his nation being edited, then someone or multiple people should request that he make aeridani smaller.

The question is, what can we decide and what should people have complete control over themselves...
Well, first of all, one person (like Fiah) cannot decide anything about other people's (like Mudkipz) nations alone.

But what should be decided by majority vote? What should be decided by full consensus? What should we decide ourselves completely?

Before we can make an official map, we will have to figure that out. Otherwise the process of creating it will most likely become a messy anarchy.

Here are some suggestions:

Sizes: The size of nations relative to each other should be decided by majority rule if there is any disagreement.
Shape: The one making the nation can completely control the shape of the nation, as long as they use border thickness and the same colors as we've agreed upon (by majority vote) to make the map consistent.
Population: We ignore this matter in creating our map.
Dimensions: We decide the dimensions of the map by majority vote.
Resolution: Majority vote.

If any disagreement happens, we find a solution before continuing the work on the map.

Some things like dimensions and resolution should be decided before we begin working on the map.

So maybe, we should start by deciding the basic rules we use to make the official map if we want to make one. Then we can begin by continuing work on the other one or whatever. But I'm not going to participate if the process is going to continue like it has.

also i vote that brush lines are one or two thick only. (two because the funky way diagonals work maybe).

what is the point of creating high resolution maps when you use thick brush to make your borders less fine.

fihano you do not get special permissions on this map so don't go dictating what kip can and can't have.

...Since when was I doing that?

Well, first of all, one person (like Fiah) cannot decide anything about other people's (like Mudkipz) nations alone.

I stopped doing that back in June/July?

well if fiah doesn't mind his nation being slightly edited (only for size, not for shape or anything else), then we can set up a poll if it should be resized. if fiah does mind his nation being edited, then someone or multiple people should request that he make aeridani smaller.

This should not be an issue, I am on a separate planet.

but that means Aeridani can be 5 tiems the size of other nations

Mine will likely be over ten times the size, as I am a Planetary Union.

I'd like at least 2 pixel thick brushes, or at least borders where all the pixels are connected (like on the Blacraft world map). That makes it easy to use the fill tool on them if you need to edit all of the pixels. Clicking every single pixel is a pain.
2 and 3 px seems fine with me, we could also use different colors. I don't really care a lot as long as they're connected.

I didn't claim you didn't.

yeah i like two pixel. i see no point of 3 pixel as it just lowers the clarity and then we need a bigger png file to achieve the same resolution and that is bad.

I vote border thickness = 2.
I vote border color = black.
I vote 2x1 dimensions (width is double the height).
I propose a resolution of 4096 x 2048.

I vote border thickness 2
Coastline color red, country border black, internal border levels 1 and 2 whatever color you want other than red and black and probably thickness 1.
I vote equirectangular (2:1)
I agree with bla's resolution.
