Ron, the 4 vs 25+ is the actual fact. More facts. One, we decided as a team to go with mapping scheme we did to have more maps. Two, we did not at the time and even now, have the time and talent to make maps like these guys are doing now. Three, being the one who did the map art in a way for our map value reader would work, the was a limit to color selection and resolution. Four, almost a year in, and the number of new maps is three and only one is released with an fp9 file. Five, Plodder is using a dummy map with our target colors to run through the map values editor to save time from the hand entry of the 4000 - 5000 values on a map of standard size. I could go on, but the reality is we made a lot of maps, they are functional, I'll freely admit not pretty, but they work. We are looking at a couple of options to improve the look to the base maps going forward, but we have to be able to fit in any changes to the schedule we have for the next game. As Steve points out, we made the game very mod friendly so others could make the content fit their style and if you don't like something there is a way to replace it. I'm very happy we have a number of talented moders doing content for the game and that others are enjoying it.
