I love it already & way to go Ruben for another map! Malta was a fine addition. I love all the small bonus regions on a 36 territ map. Cool ocean - is this the direction your headed for the water/background? Cool colors, although you may need to switch the greens up a bit as without a minimap for a legend, people may get confused. And I know you are working on the borders, but as you know - it's a huge deal here. Your territ borders look great, but th main outer is a bit jagged.

Thanks RJ.

I might actually add a mini map if it make things clearer although perhaps two of the green shades are a bit too similar and need changing.

Actually the background is not the sea...I just wanted to add something with a light green shade to be pleasing on the eye.

How can I fix the outer edge of the main border? Any suggestions?

I was also thinking of adding a regional capital for all of the 9 territories and give bonuses when you hold like 6 or more but I don't know if that would detract from the gameplay. Perhaps I'll make a poll on that one. E.g.: 6 cap +1, 7 cap +2, 8 cap +3 and all cap +5.

Hehe that's interesting. Care to elaborate a bit more on what you mean exactly? Also is this a bad thing or a good thing?

Duh - I knew that.. I must have still been thinking Malta in my head. I have San Marino on my own Italy map! But I do like the background. As far as the outer borders - let me think about it. I'll post something soon.

I love the look. But I think some surrounding land would be good to give some context. It looks a little like an Island right now :)

I know what you mean. If there had been two or more countries surrounding it I would have gone for that option, but San Marino is totally engulfed by Italy. Don't think it makes much sense in this case.

I'm not really for the bonus regions. Personally I would never try to capture all capitals. I would go for the bonus region and then start to fort and attack out. And.. The plain tahoma text wth a 1px stroke (black / white) worked for the malta map very well, but it looks too fake here.

I cant see the map, but the comments say they're good!

edit: nvm, it works now that i opened the image in a new tab.

Looks good so far! The only things i dont like are the mts, they are kind of small. That's really a personal preference though, so it really doesnt bother me too much.
Its also kind of hard to see the borders in Citta di San Marino because of the dark texture and faded borders.

I like the nice, simple, crisp style! :)

yea about the mountains, they looks good, but they dont really resemble normal mountains, i.e varying in size a lil bit or what ever,

but this is only a second draft and it looks fantastic!

good work =D> :)
