Isn’t there a way to instate layers of markers on the Dynamap? I could have sworn I’d seen it somewhere else. It’s a bit late for it now, but at the inevitable map reset that might help with this concern.

Quick edit: layers as in, maybe major and minor cities by player decision or whatever. Quantifying things with numbers always gums things up.

I'll have to check if there is, as I think there might be. May make all this easier.

On topic- Tempy_ as the OP
and Rossu from this thread: https://hollowworld.co.uk/threads/region-applications.42967/ and @others vying for a region application system.

You guys are giving me large suggestions that requires me to have a sole active Staff Member that's willing to moderate and accept applications based on a criteria we'd have to write up. I do no have that. Moderation builds and regions would require me to bring in more help as my current In-Game Tech team can only keep up with current support requests of roads, travel ports, dynmap icons, etc.. and there's been an expressed interest in not moderating dynmap icons because it'd be difficult to continuously judge a region. Regional applications would also restrict our free-form region building abilities that HW is built and based on, and that is not quite a step I'm willing to take without being fully convinced it's for the better.

But, even I find a problem with the mass amount of region icons that have absolutely 0 builds or just a single building in their region. And if it's only just one plot claimed. (Yes, someone's done that before and I've removed their icon). For now, what I can do is ask Archbishop to make sure the region has builds before he puts in a dynmap marker and we'll remove ones that have nothing there- they'll have to wait. I'll continue to read suggestions until I either find someone who's willing to take on an approved moderation-like role in the event it’s needed, or see if an easier suggestion comes along.

This is a step in the right direction, personally as I was the one who made a whole thread and discussion about it, I would be willing to give further insight and assistance if need be in the future.
