Changes to route map
« on: October 18, 2013, 11:50:27 PM »
Oh my, why was the route map changed to this horrible new format? What was wrong with the old version? At least you were actually able to see where you fly to...

Now all you see is a big clump of red  :-\



Could you share with us the benefit of the new map? Please, for the games sake, change it back to the old system! Not all updates are for the better... anyone remember the old fleet overview page? It was so simple, yet all you needed to know was visible in one easy view. Now you have this overloaded piece of artwork.

I know some will jump on me for even mentioning this, but have a look for yourself and be honest, whats the point?

There are some tweaks in the works.  See the update comments thread.

All I read about is showing all bases of members in an alliance...thats neat

I cant believe that no one else finds this change unnecessary  ??? The new sytem is clutterd with these large pins and if you click on them, shows you the country map - who would have thought that Chicago is located in the US... and route planing from that airport, but for what? How about route planing to the ap you click on, if that feature is supposed to be of any use.

The old map had alot more visibility to it. Why dont you at least put in an option, so everybody can decide which map one would prefer to use?

I remain puzzled  :-\

I think the old map must have cost a lot of money per hit or per user.

Google updated their maps API last month.  The new maps should be faster as a result.  If you go to Google Maps you'll also notice a new interface.

And smaller icons...please
I dont think we have a chance with this case, as we cant even get the makers to give an offical response to this thread  :-\

Sorry but what is the problem here again with this "official response" thing..?

You started a thread of thing that is already commented etc on the "correct" forum and thread (general/v1.3 feedback). Kind of nonsense to repost same things here and there.... (for new changes that is the correct place to comment, and bug/feature forums for other stuff. Game world forums are meant for game world specific talk)

Anyway, I shall be looking the feedback over next week probably. Lines to orange, and smaller icons of there are a lot of them. (and no, it will not be changed "back", there was a reason for this (rather unnecessary in my mind too) update as you can read from the announcements)
