You know, it just occured to me (and it may be more political than you care to get) but the region currently labeled "Northern Somalia" would be much more accurately named "Somaliland" as that region has been a de facto sovereign state for over 20 years now. See the wikipedia article: Somaliland
Then of course you could just call what you have as "Southern Somalia" simply "Somalia" and poor old Puntland will just have to wait for another CC map to make an appearance on.

Yes that is modern political perchorin, had you brought it up earlier it might have been considered but i don't want to change the map now since it has been gameplay stamped.
Thanks for the suggestion though. :)

I think this is just asking for a territory name change, but that's subjective and completely up to the mapmaker.

I believe the color your using for Northwest is very very light and can stand to be a more distinct shade of green.

Yes i understand, but i don't think it is necessary and will require border change, and that may lead to adding two southern regions, which i do not want to go to. :)

Fixed with darker green

I think the orange of south west now is also too light, mainly in comparison to the other bonus regions. It can also stand an uptick or two in color. And is it me, or is the green bonus regions have a wider girth than the other color bands?

You were correct, the green was larger because i had the setting on precise instead of softer.
I've also adjusted the colours on the mini-map

I have only one little thing. The mountains here Image seem to look pasted on, while the others look good to me.

Other than that one small thing I don't see anything else jumping out at me. The CB tests all look good, so it's time to get the large and the 888 test up!

Texts made darker - Central Oromia was indeed darker but is now the same as all others, outer countries darkened but not as dark as main map.

Mountains enhanced all around.
Larger posted.

Done.

You'll notice from the 888s. i've changed the text on Central Oromia so the numbers don't overlap it. :)
888s produced from xml.
Title also enhanced on the main .png files.

The 8's need to be centered on the circles..

Overall I think the map needs a slight bit more texture of some kind...

Bruceswar, i am well-aware of the centering situation now having 35 maps quenched.
This was preliminary 888s showing that there is no overalpping...the rest will come after graphics stamping.

I rather feel there is enough texture on the map :)

That's fine, but realise that i only do centering properly at final stage.
if there are others who feel texture needs increasing, then i will change. :)
