Those don't look like typical CD squares to me.

I would say it's the original game that was out first in France. But I think it was just an initial scetch of what the game was going to look like.

Looking at it. It would be cool to have bigger and smaller shaped areas. But you can imagine how hard it would be and the time it would take to do Lol. I don't blame them for just going with all squares.

Not sure about this, but utilizing Google Maps should give it the ability to map the squares into actual city blocks following actual roads. Not sure how fields & wilderness would be mapped though. The Allegheny National Forest would be an awfully big square if it werent' divided.

They could possibly try a side project out with it. If they make it follow roads and blocks for actual areas it would look so much better. You could say things to friends like "just took over the London eye" and it would make players fight for specific things they want.

For areas that map out too big they could input a size decider. If an area is bigger than "yay size" then split by "yay amount of times". I think it would be w little difficult but u vet they could pull it off.

Imagine when buildings came out with a map like that. You could make a bank building on your local banks area haha. And the bigger an area is that you get means more men can be placed on it. So not just 200 men everywhere but highs of 500 and areas so small only 30 men can defend it.

That would make gameplay so much more intense and new comers will always gave a chance.

Hello ! This is City Domination as it used to b at the very beginning.

The areas had different shapes because they were hand-drawed, but this solution was not scalable, so we swhitched to squares in order to make the game playable for the many =)

I think like kinzua said. There is a way for it to automatically draw areas out in shapes of actual places big and small. This would be going back to your very first idea and making it possible to do! Not sure how hard it would be though. Maybe have a look into it and see if its doable nicorr?

Nothing better than figuring out an old problem and solving it. while also helping your community to a better looking and even mechanics being better if done correctly.

I'd say if its not too time consuming I'd check it out Wink may or may not be possible.

We have thought about it, but we have no way to do this

I'm not sure how myself. But there are games out there that use the Google maps to draw their own maps. Ingress for an example. They have the same roads map but they altered it to be how they want. Is there not some way that you can use this for your own idea but somehow link the road ends together so they all form shapes instead of just pathways?

I'm not much of a coder and especially not with phone apps. But i have seen similar things done so maybe its possible. I'll have a look and a read about to see if I can find anything on it. But you guys would know better what your looking for.

I tried Ingress here today. City Domination, the way it works with maps is playable here. Ingress requires rooting your phone and everything. Granted, I just may be your only China player, but please don't go the way of Ingress. It's unplayable here in China. My phone, just because it's a foreigner phone, is already hacked & rooted. But please, for the love of the lords of Kobol, don't let CD go the way of Ingress.

Jesus man. I'm not suggesting he change anything about how the game works. I'm just stating that ingress have their own custom map and it might help towards working out the shapes layout for city domination.

Chill your beans dude!!

Its not messing with anything. Its their very first idea coming to life but globally. The game won't change in any way other than squares becoming actual sized shapes.

And I did state they can do a test server so unless it works it won't be added in anyway. Please do read previous posts and try to understand them.

All I said was that I was happy it worked out here. (sorry for the name change. Thought best I use my username, not my gang name)

Ingress, for the most part, doesn't actually work here because they use appspot as their main IP address. China blocks Appspot as they do a good chunk of Google. I'm not arguing with what you're saying at all. I'm really simply adding my experience with the game, having played both in the US, where a lot of people play, and China, where there are maybe some old school French who had territory, but have since left as of... two weeks ago.

OK then. So without trying to sound too much like a dick to you. Your point was invalid to the conversation and you were simply stating your experience with a game mentioned.

My idea is simply a larger scale idea of the first city domination. They had to hand draw the shapes to make that cool look work out.but globally was near impossible so they defaulted to squares. Using other games that have customs maps (like "but not exactly" ingress), might give opportunity to create their first idea everywhere without hassle.

Im curious about this myself so I'm also looking into ways to achieve this. Though my knowledge is a drawback to exactly what I'm looking for.

Considering I started this thread in the first place, and really, it was merely out of curiosity, you should know now that I FULLY support you. And Nicorr. If it were to be all drawn out, i.e.
Nicorr wrote:

He's probably right.

I've worked with Google maps on a number of sites, many just for a one-shot F&B website for some place that has a few locations around a city. Google maps is easy that way. But the fact that I can take territory at my place here in Shanghai, when I'll bet you anything, Nicorr or Zeph, or ANY of the developers of CD have NEVER been here... and that didn't stop me from taking Oscar's Pub today, and tomorrow, the Shed bar...

It seems to work well. And unlike Ingress, I don't have to rehack my already hacked to hell phone just to play it. Believe me, those of us here have a bit of know how to hack our phones & computers to get the simple things in life. Like Facebook.

No, it's not a joke. Really. Facebook.

Anyways... I digress. I'm on your side, Devil. I like this game enough to get onto a forum for it. That being said, I reckon we all are all for it.
