Imperium without the river rule.
I would like we playtested this plain option for that variant: the Imperium map without any river rule.

Better call in players who have played the river rule, to feel the difference. If the players approve the change, we could dare proposing it for permanent change in vdip.

Hey Flame, could you enable the permission for me to upload files for War of Austrian Succession? As I recall, each upload I make will require you to "verify" the file for security reasons / making sure it won't break the site.

I uploaded a large map, along with its name file, and it worked! However, the edit map tool is unable to load it (same issue as Napoleonic). Maybe the map files are too large?
Flame (938 D)

What sould we do with light borders on the largemap?
Safari (1013 D)
22 Feb 17 UTC
Just to be clear, the problem is that some unit has been mistakenly placed on a black pixel in the map editor.

As soon as someone takes the territory that's causing the problem, the borders will change to the color of their country and we will have our culprit. That territory is probably Papal States or Hamburg, so it should happen soon.

Until then, I will continue to search manually. However, I think that even if I find it and update the map, we won't know until the next phase, or until the cache has been cleared again.

Hi Flame, I believe that the Austrian Succession variant needs some files verified before it can be further edited or viewed (in any case, it isn't visible on the variant page anymore).

Actually, I don't think the colors have changed yet. I updated the drawmap file, but it seems like I should have done it on the drawmap_30m file. I'll do that now.

Site Glitch for Mobile
Today when I tried to log onto this site on my smartphone using 3G, I received this message: "Error Triggered: Column 'ip' cannot be null." It was fairly annoying as it caused me to NMR in one of our test games.

However, I think it might be fixable, because the same glitch doesn't appear on vDiplomacy.com, only here. Do you know what the problem is, Flame?
