... the famous "colors and tastes" (des goûts et des couleurs in French) debate....no one was ever able to end it
What could be done, if someone is a good enough artist, is to produce another map (as a mod) with the colourful style... but the artist we used works on commission basis and would not do it for free.
Very nice point about the "Colors and Tastes" debate.
I will note, however, that this is the only Ageod game that does not use the colorful style. And I believe it is true that many people will base at least part of their decision on whether to buy a game or not on the screenshots they see, which tells them what the game looks like.
I am thinking that perhaps the sales of the game might reflect how popular this change might really be. though of course their are other factors. For example, the subject should be quite popular, at least in England, and the price is very attractive.
Speaking for myself, if I was not already a devoted Ageod fan, I would have passed on buying this one after seeing the screenshots of the map, even though I am interested in the subject.
Of course, the people who like the map would see it as a positive factor in their decision on whether to buy the map.
And I am being an advocate for the style I greatly prefer.
I hope there is an artist who loves these games who would be willing to do the color mod. Who knows?
