The "Classic" one, with the pastal colours, and jaggy retro province edges. The "asteroids on steroides" one. :mrgreen:

If I recal, it’s something having to do with how the map was designed back in the day making it not worth the effort of programming the graphics into it. This is augmented by the fact that I think it’s not used often.

Oh, I get it, you mean the Retro map! I should have worked that one out. The Classic map by the way is the one we normally use and which DOES support order graphics.

The reason the graphics do not work on the Retro map are that the Retro map is built in a completely different way. The reason we have not added the function to work on the Retro map is we do not update the Retro map. This is why other functions such as hover etc do not work on the Retro map. Frankly, our intent wass to remove it altogether but it has a small group of fans and so we decided it didn't matter just leaving it there. But it will not bee updated for any new functions.
