As the title says really it's kind of hard to see the map to see who owns what, not the main map but that small one it needs enlarging so I know who owns what territory.
Would it be possible to record the way the borders change on the map after you've played like a replay seeing how you did your strategy a sort of review.
I know Civ 5 does this so why not DoM? :P

Do you mean the mini-map? Personally I play the game zoomed out pretty far so I can basically see everything that is going on. Also, if you want to see the whole map, you could turn off Exploration Fog when you create a game.

It's definitely possible to add. Wouldn't know how to go about it exactly? How would you propose it to be done?

If you could provide a crude drawing that would be much appreciated? E.g. it shows how it all would work.

Noblemaster, if I understand what is being asked for in DoN. I suggest you do it the same way you did it for AoC. Where in AoC you click on the "Game Setting" icon which brings up the setting page. On that page there is a drop down menu for "Event Display". There is like 4-5 different ways you can display the events. One being to show all military movements. This will also show borders changing when there is a military victory in a province. I think this is what is being ask for.

Maybe that was the question? There is a whole bunch of checkboxes in the Demise of Nations [Settings] where you can enable/disable all kind of movements from other nations. Because it's just too much, I disabled the replay of all nations that are not related to your nation (no alliance/not enemy).

You can enable those though! Please note, you can only see what's visible for your "fog of war" (unless you have fog of war disabled an everything shows!).

You can see a little bit bigger version of the minimap through some of the icons on the bottom while playing.

Yep that's it the Minimap I was falling asleep as I was writing up the post.
It is a bit small so the option to have its own screen would be nice.
It records the progression of the border change via screenshots per turn perhaps?
When the match is over you can watch what happened.

Got it! Added it to the todo-list. Going to take a while until I get to that though.
