Detailed Map Screen

Postby The Avatar on Mon Apr 30, 2012 9:41 pm

Okay, maybe the devs are going to add this along with a new Kingdom screen, but I haven't seen anything about it. So here it is: I would like the adventuring map to be much more detailed and interesting. Instead of a practically blank map with a few sketches on it, I would prefer a colorful map. That way, instead of having to keep little buttons all over it you could have different sections of the map correspond to different dungeons. Instead of a little button it's a portion of the map that gives info when you mouse over/click on it like the buttons already do. Also, if you haven't discovered the region yet you can just have it not draw it, cover the section(s) with clouds, or any other way of concealing the dungeons. I don't know, I'd just prefer a dynamic, colorful, and interesting map to are normal bland map. Just my opinion.

Does anyone agree? Disagree? Have questions?

Things that are still going to be added:
Awesome Kingdom graphics.
More detailed map graphics.
More sub-dungeons.
More challenge dungeons.
More puzzles.
More sounds.
Music.
More quests (depending on time we have left).
The Special Edition content.


dislekcia said they would. /thread ;)

YES! Anyways, I still hope it will be regions instead of little buttons on top of the more detailed screen.

IIRC that's what they are doing with the kingdom, having mainly blank in the beginning and as you unlock buildings they appear instead of having the buttons. I agree it'd work well with the dungeons too.

Yeah, I think leaving it blank until you discover the dungeon would be the best solution. It even makes sense: You draw on new areas as you discover them.

I think you'll like what happens with the map eventually. It wasn't going to stay the way it is now :)
