Food increased by 4 pixels and placed onto the left bottom of territ.
Siren glow now a purple. Black not liked but cannot go back to the original as it does not show up on one of the colour blind tests.

Uh.... Go back to the black. No offense but the glow ruins the siren. I wish you didn't have to add anything to that.

:lol:

Darker blue with a higher contrast can be seen by all. Also, blue over the water seems to fit the colour scheme.
Changed Pegasus and added a reduced glow.

That looks..... Better. What's the food supposed to represent? It kinda looks like a small Pokemon and a McDonald's sausage patty :)

I actually thought it looked more like a block of cheese and a hamburger.

Pretty sweet map. The only thing that comes to mind is the background of the legend. I think the red takes away from the icons. Maybe a darker color would be better?

Always with the jokes. :lol:
Not done for all. Just look at column 3.
A3-same icon but with a slight glow.
E3-same icon but olives are now green.
J3-increased the contrast to the same icon.
N3-new icon. Goblet with meat.
Choose one or none and can get the rest done.

The legend is next on the list of things to do. And this should be the last part of the puzzle before the small can be made up.

Agree. I think you just need to make the item larger.

thanks guys, made the same 4 as before larger to see if that makes a difference. If not, can I ask what you would suggest to replace these ones.

Had a thought about the food icon. Instead of trying to get food and drink legible at this size, why not just a plate. How does this grab you. Colour is likely to change as I need to make it colour blind friendly and fit the maps look overall but this is the basic design of it. A plain round plate with a gold warrior in the middle. This is the same shape as the rock decoration that is on the left hand side.

That looks good, though it could possibly be seen as a shield or something like that...
