World 2.0





As we may all know, atWar's current world map is more than a decade old. With all the current developments within the game, it has been the only thing that has not been sufficiently updated enough. The world map is and will be, the most important aspect of the game. The meta and player base revolves around the world map, but as new updates are being rolled out, a newer map is definitely needed in order to not just bring more activity to the game and keep up with the pace of the development, but also to bring something new for all of us to enjoy.

Because of this, Dave has decided to launch the contest for the creation of a new, and possibly the replacement for the current world map. The current world map is more than a decade old and lacks many features, a new world map would create leeway for further development, and would definitely increase activity.

In order to enter this contest, you have to reply "in" in the replies, and submit your map before the deadline.
You may collaborate with multiple mapmakers, though your prize will be split.

Map Requirements:
  • Map must be free from copyright issues.
  • All presets on the current world map should be available in your map.(ie. EU+ and Asia)
  • Must be UN-recognized borders.
  • Must be suitable for current strategies.
  • Must be suitable for competitive games.
  • Must have 2 variants of cities without harming the balance. (extra and non-extra.)
  • Borders must be detailed.
  • The map must be high resolution


The winner(s)' prize pool:
  • 15000 Protocoins


Trophy:
(Credits: Estus)

Deadline: May 31 , 2021 (to be extended if required)

But map maker is still broken and glitching

It works fine, and even if the map breaks, there's still a chance it can be recovered just by asking Dave.


When was it fixed?

Improper request. Not RP map. Idea dropped.

I have a map of this if you want it, but there is like 20,000 other cities and stuff since it was an RP map

Would it be possible to get the base map formula for incomes that is used in the world map? It might be easier than calculating USA's income and reinforcements manually.

The US doesn't have provinces . Personally I'd love to see all 50 states. I like cancer.

If there was a formula, I don't have it.

I can do a database dump of all the cities and countries into .csv files. If you've got some good Excel knowledge maybe you can extrapolate from these what the formula might have been:

Those are a massive help for my work, cheers for that!

I need a time extension, fairly speaking I need like a few (4-6) months to finish my version.

Sounds quite long so if not accepted I will quit and wish the most of the other participants goodluck.

I think it's impossible to save the map with a different background without getting the map corrupted. Maybe it's because the World Map belongs to silverlight and it becomes bugged in html when you do this.
https://atwar-game.com/forum/topic.php?topic_id=45151

Edit: Yes it is because of something like this. I saved the world map with a different background in SL editor now! I'm lucky I cloned one in 2015 or something.
Please let us clone the world map in there or anyone who doesn't have a saved SL World map can't have a chance to win this contest.

Would you mind opening a bug report for that? https://atwar-game.com/forum/board.php?board_id=1 If you can please provide all the information in the bug report template, AND send me the exact background file you are trying to upload, then I will try to reproduce it when I have some time.

By the way I don't even have the source code for the Silverlight version, so its impossible for me to change anything about it. As much as I'd love to let you clone maps in SL, I literally don't have the ability to do that.

On the other hand if its a bug with the HTML5 editor then I can do something about it. Personally I haven't encountered any problems cloning the world map recently (not since my last round of fixes a few months ago)... so I'm guessing its either something specific to your browser, or maybe something specifically about the background image that it doesn't like. That's just a guess though... I'd need to see it for myself to figure it out.
