Kryon - I think all the animated maps are brilliant. I am really pleased you are doing it for longturn. The 3D spinning globe could be done because GT05 was on an Earth map. It is pretty but not as useful to have the 3D effect I agree. I posted the comment because I saw something I thought was great and wanted to share it. If we are to compete with Greatturn it should not be on who has the prettiest maps. Perhaps we should challenge them to a game.
