Lets start with the bad news.
1) The color scheme is VERY specific which means it can be unacceptable for certain number of players (too much contrast, too poisonous green)
2) The background is pitch black. The land is pitch black. Guess what? Close your eyes and trust your feelings! The player needs to know solid borders and edges to make perfect tactics, that's why the background should differ with the land.
( Just try and read this!!!)

Go on and put some work in this draft. Maybe you could make the land chip alike. Anyways the game needs some rope-maps for sure.

Oh and welcome to clubommunity. Keep improving yourself!

Really, the land is not pitch black. It's dark green Wink Smiley.
I thought about it and then saved the background dark green so the details are seen well

It's still difficult to see. The light green 0s and 1s help identifie the ground but not good enough, since some edges are not covered with a 0 or 1. I agree with DrDickens. Small things make a big difference. And here you can't see these small things. I like the idea (had something like this, you can see my thread in this section with some rough sketches). Needs more work though.

I can see the difference only if i look at mah monitor at 160 degree from the top. It's not a good thing to jump up to determine the edge especially when you have 15sec turn. Think about.

Here I changed the background color and you can see the difference between the old and the new one

Here you can see how a random map with this style looks

Much better. Now reduce the brightness (or whatever it's called) of the green and it won't hurt the eye anymore. Smile

I really like this theme!! Maybe, you could put some highlights in a different colour, say, red! For instance the computers and the mice etc... could be different colours just to make it not so....single coloured. These unique ideas are fantastic Big Grin

Maybe you could reduce the huge contrast by adding "scanlines".

General idea reminds me of the "Information Superhighway" found in World of Goo.

Not sure if you know it but also shows some nice ideas using different colors and still keeping the general "classic crt" look.

hi, i think a new ropes map is a good idea.
Nice map, but the colors looks very bad to see. Sad Smiley
