Hello,
   I was trying to view my towns on the Strat map, and had a thought; That rather than trying all the various ways to do this by pulling up my alliance map and trying to figure out which towns were mine etc., that it would be a great addition to the selection criteria to be able to opt for "All My Towns/Cities"
  When players could only have 12 cities it was much easier to follow which little dots were yours, but now with some players capable of being larger than the smallest Alliance, it would make it easier to see where your towns are, how far apart/close together they are, if you have them set up the way you pictured them/wanted to etc. etc.

  Thanks for considering

I can do an external map that will show you where all your towns are on the map but it will require entering your player id. That means others will also be able to see exactly the same information.

Knocked up a quick and dirty demo of what I think Etherea/Krystaal is looking for. Names of the individual towns is shown when you hover over them.


Let me know if you want this as part of DurcTools while the devs decide if they will do it or not.

I think this is a good idea, and could be useful. It's not like that information isn't in the game anyway, it just takes a bit longer to figure out. Out of curiosity though - does the way you envisage it working mean that anyone could enter in player X's ID and the map would show that person player X's towns?

For an external page yes Ruarc however I'm currently working on it as an actual UI modification in-game.

Actually what I was envisioning was in the Strat map, under "options" have another slider added titled "My Cities" that would highlight all of that players cities on that one account. it would be useful in seeing at a glance if what the player had planned or imagined in thier head was actually working out the way they wanted, or if changes needed to be made.

Added my take on it in DurcTools. A new checkbox below the Alliances section that will show your towns on the map as white discs with a black border. Hovering over one will display a tooltip with the town name in it. The setting for this is not stored so you'll need to turn it on each time.
