Any texture going onto this map at all? Something very simple for now. Background pictures. Some talk of this, any luck finding any? The red, will the army numbers be lost on that? I noticed that on the map you posted, it has a couple of airports, will these go on in any way? Maybe allow them to attack each other. I notice the Miami flag has orange and green on it, would these colours find them selves on the map at some point?
Excuse me for asking this, but why does your map have different boundaries and names compared to this one?
Textures and bg pics I'm still looking at doing. Try and find a good background with an 80's theme!! I know leopard skin was the "in" thing back then. As far as my map being different than the one you posted, well, I never came across that one in my search so I just scanned in a page from my atlas and went with that.

I understand what you are trying to do, though. Any way to include the entire road and allow crossings where you want them? I can't think of any examples of maps that do that at the moment. If you go that route, I could suggest the primary roads to include: the Palmetto, US1, 836 = the Dolphin Expressway, 874 = the Don Shula Expressway, the Turnpike - although this one is mostly off your map to the west (pm me if u want).
You can also use something like rows of palm trees to be impassable? Or canals - although they may not be very pretty? Miami is littered with canals and makes driving frustrating sometimes.koontz1973 wrote:I notice the Miami flag has orange and green on it, would these colours find them selves on the map at some point?
Since the mapmakers are going for an 80's theme, any orange and green should be Univ of Miami, as the Hurricanes were huge during this time period. nolefan may not like it, though!
I am adding in the roads so they are "more complete". So stayed tuned for an update later this week!!
