Dear all,

I am posting two examples of tab-maps for the DL on a google-doc to get feed-back from the community: https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing

Note that the text and symbols are expanded in the horizontal to compensate for the squeezing the client does to the tab-map file when displaying.

The 'red' areas represent 'crop planting' areas

The dev team has been working hard with him to fine tune and improve the maps. What he didn't tell you is once a map is setup with the extra mark-ups, the entire map is then computer generated, so anything that you see on the map is accurately places without going overboard with a photo quality map.

I had no intenetions to redo the Seridia maps, WS I just redid because I got annoyed by having to walk over water each time to get to the DL.

I've also been telling them in game there has been no real tuning and it's intended as a sample. I only posted so people can compare to something known

The new tab-maps have started getting shipped out via auto-update. More changes will still be going in.

Please provide your feedback!
