Island Ownership Map

Being Unable to edit nor erase the older post of this, I've decided to just repost the whole thing. I will try and update this every weekend as needed, provided life/wife doesn't drag me away to the Hampton's or something :)

Re: Island Ownership Map

Pretty.

Is there any significance to the different shapes for the islands?

Very nice I remember seeing this the first time too, looks like Spirit of the Game escaped you and is roaming the seas though!

Re: Island Ownership Map

Yes there is

Large Square - Metropolis
Circle - City
Triangle - Colony
Big X - Outpost
Small Diamond - Foragable/Uninhibited

This should be 99.9% accurate unless somne City has turned into a Metropolis since this January

And yes Killer Watermelons, Spirit of the Game, Blighted, and Cold Fire are all M.I.A. from this map

Re: Island Ownership Map

I'm not sure what criteria you're using to denote colony vs. city, but last I checked Namath and Lagniappe both had over 500 citizens (considerably more than Cnossos) and are neither forageable nor uninhabited. The real value is seeing which flag holds which island, but the other aspects are also neat.

Re: Island Ownership Map

Radders, I think it's you who needs to look at the ocean more closely, not the OP who needs to look at his map. :-P None of those four holds an island, why would they appear on an island ownership map?

Re: Island Ownership Map

I think considering Lag a colony isn't all that far fetched. While the population might be strong, the island physically is not all that huge and I think that is probably the way to most accurately describe the current government arangement.

Re: Island Ownership Map

This map was compiled by another user a year or so ago. The criteria he used was the actual size of an island and its density, not its population as this can change for more quickly than the building density can.

You can view the original map hereOriginal Map

And Radders, maybe you saw Spirit of the game floating on the left hand side and maybe you didn't. *wink*

Why indeed? Hehe, I didn't mean to cause a fuss sorry. Just found it rather amusing suddenly spotting it there, the map's perfect otherwise as far as I can tell.

Re: Island Ownership Map

What we need are more flag wars! Let whittle this list down from to say 10 :P

Also, for those wondering, the Spirit of the Game's name was left over after some editing floating somewhere between Pearl and Opal. Thats what Radders was referring to.

What Nalle5 is reffering to is that SotG is still listed on the Flags of Midnight Boxout. I have fixed this now.

Re: Island Ownership Map

Updating every weekend? This is Midnight, islands change hands about every 3 years. If any islands change hands this weekend, for example, I will eat my dreadlocks.

Will you provide video footage of said forfeit? I'm sorely tempted to bribe Carpe Noctem into letting the BK win this weekend ;)

Why not just use the island definitions that the game provides like small, medium and large? While thre populations may have changed since January, the island size does not.

Re: Island Ownership Map

Tis the way the map was made, I am using the orginial artist's work without changing it much. Otherwise it would be like stealing it.

I think making it more readable and more easily understood would be doing us all a service. If no one ever improved on what someone else did, we'd still all be driving Model Ts. :/

EDIT: Does anyone know if these were terms that were used in game way back in the day?

Re: Island Ownership Map

I don't know, I like it now that I know the legend. I'm not sure that outpost/medium/large adds a lot of information I didn't already know; isn't it more interesting to get an idea of the different populations? What size the island is never changes.

Re: Island Ownership Map

Well, I've been governor of a couple of islands, and I'm sure you have too, and that population can swing all up and down the scale a ton in a single day. And while I guess the population might be interesting, it doesn't tell me a lot about an island. The fact is that most information there, not that there's a ton, comes from its size not its population.

Re: Island Ownership Map

Looks like Broadsiders are trying to remove Tyr's Own from the map and expand into a 3rd Archipelago.

Also Jinx looks poised to attack Islay of Luthien, but I doubt that they will take it from CN.

Hope I'll have some editing to do by Sunday night :)

Re: Island Ownership Map

wow, this is why you don't post when you've had less than 3 hours of sleep. Yes Tyr's Own will still have 1 island left, and I didn't notice that Broadsiders had Jorvik. Now lets see the outcome of the blockade for Byrne in 4 hours.

Re: Island Ownership Map

As much as it pains me to do so I have updated the map to reflect the unjust loss of Xi island to Dies Irae.

I also added a legend for BKs and the position of current active BKs on the ocean.

Enjoy

If you are going to keep this part updated, you will have a full-time job ahead of you - but thanks for doing it! :)

Btw; you missed the Vargas flotilla outside Frond.
