Slow. :D Forgot how unmotivating the small map was to do. Finished redoing all of the text and a few of the tert borders. Only have one or two more and then the 888's. I would say in the next 2-3 days I should have the finished small with an 888 version, and CB versions of the large. The 888 version of the large has been posted for a bit.

Seamus, a very tiny thing from me, in the legend can you rearrange the inside and unalaska bonus symbol so the pink is below and to the right of the orange. Right now it looks like an inverted T and had me looking in the wrong place for it. :roll:

CURRENT UPDATE INFO - 2013-08-25:
- In the legend, per Koontz's suggestion, I swapped positions of the Inside Passage and Unalaska bonus info, and Super Bonus mini-maps. Personally I didn't think players would have a problem, and it looked a little better originally, but I can live with this.
- Changed Dutch Harbour to Dutch Harbor

Thanks Seamus. One tiny point from me now. Sea passages. The one from Bethel to Nunivak looks a little faded. Any chance of bringing it out like the others?

Why do we have to use incorrect American spelling?

good question -

If you have British themed map - why not use British Spelling
If you have a Russian map - maybe a few Russian names...
ect...

I personally do not think the labeling and names (if in another language) effect the game play as long as the Legend is in English - in fact having other languages on a map might actually flourish the map even better - keeping it to it's theme...

The reason I think the Legend should be in english - is three part:
1) I read English (I know a little selfish - but it's true)
2) We do not have a mutli-language translator system for all languages around the world
3) A majority of the world is learning English, where as many of those who speak english do not try to learn multiple languages - therefore English is becoming the global standard.

All legends need to be in English. The is due to the majority of players being English speakers and as you said, rest of the world seems to be learning it. As for the map itself, names can be in any language as long as it can be read by the xml readers. So no to hieroglyphics or Klingon. :(

As for this spelling, Alaska is American so the American spelling would be correct. If you have a French map, French spellings would be used if possible. Ian just got me to swap out a spelling on Madrid to the correct Spanish one.

There are two things here, but for the most part everyone is correct.

As for this map, it would have been the same if ian had said, "can you please use the "correct" spelling of Dutch Harbor." Looking at my layers they are all named Dutch Harbor, but on the map for some reason I put Harbour. There is no Dutch Harbour. So it's not a matter of changing it from the English spelling to the American spelling, but changing it from the incorrect spelling to the correct one.
