    You have not failed us. Stuff happens, man. It's okay. Don't spend an entire sad day angrily re-drawing it. Take a break, watch a movie. Wind down, and we can discuss it later. /advice

    I agree with Eltain on this one, cool it for a bit Terrance, and then come back later. We can wait a decent amount of time, so just don't spend an entire day's worth of time redrawing and recreating it, we can tolerate waiting. :)

    ?

    but the map from last turn still remains on the site. couldn't you simply download that one and work from there?

    you will still have to do the changes from this turn, but it's not as bad as starting from scratch.

    latest map you posted... is HERE

    Don't worry Terrance, stuff like this happens.

    Back when I was moderating LINES: World of Magic, my first NES, I was foolish enough to write my updates in the text box in the forum itself. I encountered horrendous levels of frustration if I ever accidentally refreshed, or hit a key when I had a lot of the update selected. This delayed my updating, but I learned from every mistake, and so will you. I keep backups of my maps for GalaxyNES on 2 different hard drives, and sometimes three, and upload my files to online servers incase I suffer a catastrophic loss.

    So hold in there, give yourself time to let the frustration cool off, fix what's lost and then prepare the update like you always do. :) We're behind you here!

    TerrisH, he's working with a multi-layer map, the one he posts in the thread is a flattened version, where every layer has been compressed down into one. If he's lost his original map, then save of recovering his file, redrawing it is a necessity. Tracing it from the last map is a reasonable solution, but it's still far from easy.

    Thanks all. I guess I do need to take a breather since I've been taking this a bit too seriously (I sat stunned for about 32 minutes when it didn't load, and another 12 when the backup failed). This is an overcomable problem and I will do all I can to bring this back to full speed in due time. Thanks for the support :).

    You can back up everything, as you do it, with Google Drive.

    Don't you remember? Terrance888 got banned from the computer until today, and we're all waiting for the update so there's no diplomacy.

    Yay! - I just learnt you need at least five characters for a message. Getting the hang of this now.

    I imagine that this will happen with every leader from Keltia soon...

    Spoiler :
    "You know, I used to be the leader of a nation once..."

    "Yes. And you were doing well too, until everyone died."

    "The people want a new harbor."

    "Then build them a new harbor!"

    You people are monsters.

    In the interest of faster resuscitation for the fear of death, the updating process shall have all four corners cut off, spotlights removed, yadda yadda yadda. Update tomorrow finishing Nile right now.

    AKA I will make it really REALLY quick so people stop filling up my PM box and other areas asking if this is dead. Don't expect much.

    You never run out of people to kill so long as there is at least one other person in the world. :)
