How'd you figure the color scheme? It seems like a rather strange choice of colors.

Strange how? :-s

I guess I'd expect it to go one of a few ways: mirroring the current USA map color scheme, going full on red-white-and-blue, or going a more traditional route with more evenly distributed colors across the spectrum - it doesn't seem to balance aesthetically-speaking.

I don't see nothing wrong with the current color scheme. :?
Moreover with all the colored routes, the current zone bonus colors works perfectly.

Will double check the final xml - images this evening...expect a yellow stamp soon! :)

Would be helpful indeed.


--Andy

sorry, guys, i forgot to mention earlier post about including the state abbreviation in every name. the main reason for this is to help players who aren't very sure of the location of a city that has just been won or lost in the game log, for example not everyone knows where to find small towns such as colby or dyer on such a large map. this can be a big issue in freestyle or speed games.

Oh, I didn't think about that. I guess that makes sense. I guess I'm late on the train anyhow. Sorry.
