I agree Lancelot in that, you'll have a lot of hard work if you decide to redraw in photoshop whereas keep going under Illustrator...

I'll work on incorporating mountains into the IL file.

after you send me the most recent firle, If I have some time, can I clean up that IL file also? You have so much going on there it's very hard to work with. Your borders should be on 1 layer, all those layer masks need to go. I'll redraw the borders if that's what it takes (which I think it will). And I really think we can do a better job on the territory texture you have. Shall I try?

The smoother coasts are much better.
However, the colour of the line around the coast isn't quite right.

I agree with ManB on the coastline. It would look better if you remove the outline all together including the outline of the rivers.

Where the rivers go into the ocean, they need to be blended in so that you don't have a hard line of river and then ocean.

The "bridges" need to be done the old way of the region colors on them so they are easier to see.

The Foreign claims need to be subdued a tad as the 888's are a little hard to see on them.

The text on the regions need to be a tad bit bigger and darker. I say a pure black should do it. They are a bit hard to read, and when you do the small, they will be even harder.

That is it for now.

I reduced the thickness of the coastline. I prefer keep it.
For the border's river. I drop borders but I keep two borders for two rivers. See you the difference ? What do you prefer ?

RjBeals, may be, will draw the bridges.

I don't understand your suggestion.

Done. You prefer ?

WP Lance,

Personally, i like the way that the Seine River is done... It keep a much more natural way for me...

Looks like Gironde could be redone that way...

Increase the opacity of them so the army numbers are easier to see.

I would prefer no outline to to that blue outline. If you are going to use an outline use a color that is darker, like maybe grey.

I agree with this. Do all the rivers in this way!

I forgot to mention earlier about the Paris inset, you need to have the surrounding regions in it so we know where it is -for those of us who don't know exactly where Paris is.

I think the problem is I'm using Illustrator CS3. It's older than the version you are, so I'm getting every object in it's own layer - see the screenshot, It's not organized the way you spoke about.

Can't work with the file. Maybe save a copy as eps, or see if the save options allow to save as CS3 file?
