I like three, but it could still use the lighter water color as you did with 2.

I like 3, but I think it'd look best with a partial desaturation instead of the full one you have right now. And I like the sea blue.

Yes, this would be good to at least try out. I think it would be better than the full desaturation.

No! Bad TaCktiX! You are not entitled to an opinion other than mine, you know that! :P (Just kidding, I respect your opinions...)

Ok, mostly graphical stuff this time...

I think the grey-ish sea colour works perfectly, creating a great contrast against the colourful land areas.

On your latest image, you could increase the saturation of the land a bit, to give even more contrast against the nonplayable areas, but not too much - just make them a little brighter. Also, West Estonia could be somehwat lighter - blue numbers will probably be hard to see on such dark blue.

Then some other things... The impassables can still use some work. They don't seem to fit the map... seem a bit too pasted on.

The outer border around the playable land area seems unnecessarily thick. Also it doesn't seem to be consistent - on some places it looks more brown and blurry, others it's more black and thinner. A sharp, consistent border would look better. Kinda like the territory borders, but maybe a bit darker.

Also, the grid shouldn't go over the border lines. Put the layer with the grid under all the border layers. You could also try some other layer mode for the grid, to make it follow the colours around it - try multiply mode or something similar.

Great job on all four alternatives! I would pick number 4 the Desat with Marble Sea. I prefer the marble sea and I think it's the contrast between it and Estonia that makes it look better. With a dark sea it sort of blends together with Estonia. The marble sea makes those regions look better.

I'd do the trees something like this:

Image

ie. less of a mushroom shape, more bushy and irregular, with smooth shading instead of hard outline...

For the hills, I'd recommend something like this - simple style, smooth lines + land colour + some shading:
