Currently, IAPs allow individuals to buy new maps. Would players be required to pay for the map creator?

Taylor –if we were to build a public map editor, it would be made free to everyone to encourage people to create new maps. –Lee@SMG

I think it would encourage many people to buy premium (which I don't see why anyone wouldn't)!

I think you could have a section on 'Best Maps' of the day, the month, and all time.

And, I think there would need to be a mix of pre-shaped countries/continents. Whilst at the same time, we may need to draw individual countries. (Posted separately for voting on)

Great idea, love the potential this game has and that the development team is actively trying to improve it!

This is my favorite idea so far. Would these be allowed in ranked play online? Maybe you could have an unranked online mode to go along with this and some of the other ideas that have been mentioned (fog of war, spies, etc.). That way IAP would still have meaning as only those maps would be allowed for ranked play.

Please do this! It would be soooooooo awesome. I’ve already designed my own physical, paper maps, and this would make those next-level.
There could be a weekly limit on created maps—say, one. SMG could sell user-made maps to other players—for gems. Maybe the top four maps of the week come in a reduced-cost Weekly Custom map pack. Individual maps would appear as Custom [Map name here], and could appear in the Create Game map-choosing phase. Each player could then access a “library” that includes all games that they’ve created. Perhaps previous weeks’ maps could require a reduced gem/coin cost to permanently unlock. The best maps could be voted on by players after (unranked) Global Domination games. Also, one could unlock maps from a Friend’s library. Only SMG-approved maps can be used for ranked games, while unapproved maps can be used in any other game mode. Maps could be made, first, by selecting a background; such as River, Coast, Land, or Sea. Then continents could be placed, maybe choosing from predetermined shapes, moving them around and next to each other. Territories could be chosen, selecting a number/shape; they could be dragged to different places as well. Then sea-lines would be placed, only continuing when all territories are accessible. There would be minimum/maximum limits on continents, territories, snd sea-lines. With Premium, one could import pdfs for maps, also draw in-app. Perhaps Premium members could make unlimited maps per week. Also, territory, map, and continent names could be auto-generated; players would have to choose from certain options/type in names—all clean, of course. SMG could rename any popular maps, of course. Maybe players with a popular map get some kind of reward—gems, perhaps? Potentially, this all could be done separately, not an in-app design feature, but an importable one. Please implement this!
Also, what if there were random, one-game autogenerated maps? That’d be cool.
