I think the original looks nice, but the revamp is nice too. For the first draft I think it's got a lot of potential to be a good improvement.

Peloponesos and Sterea Ellada look a little too saturated compared to the other continents, though that could be to do with the way they filter with the background. I think I prefer with the backgrounds on the territories, breaks up the colour blocks a bit and fits well with the theme. Also, I'm liking those dancing Indians - nice touch.

Heres the latest version. Personally I don't think the red looks right at all. I also loved the red on the old version, but this one is totally different. I think i'm going to stick with the brown.

Ok, I like the way the graphics look now in the continents. But the font is bad, the legend is bad, the water is ok (maybe have it so there is no glow around the land), and the Indians are still bad.

If you complain about the damn minotaurs one more time i'm going to stop reading your posts all together. I honestly appreciate your input, but when I say multiple times "i'm going to keep them for now," move on.

Which font do you guys like better? The one for Asia Minor's territories or the ones for Peloponnesos?

I personally love the Asia Minor font.

Are you adding a route between Krete and Carpethos?

Is the border between Lesbos/Xios going to stay?

Are you switching Rhodos' bonus?

The one thing I could see as a problem (But a very slight problem) would be that island of the Kyklades to the far east that connects to Rhodos. Could that be moved in closer, more towards the name?

Sorry to throw so much stuff out there at once.

Yes.

Personally I don't find anything wrong with the original map, but this looks great too. For some reason the land looks as if it's below the sea, might just be how you look at it, or though it's probably just me. Anyone else find that? I really like how you have put the shadow images on the background of continents, nice touch.

Added missing sea-routes, fixed the spelling, unified the font (though people can still vote for the others if they like it, I kinda liked it).

Also added army shadows, and other miscellaneous touch-ups.

What do people think of the sea route circling the outer Islands of the Kyklades? Are they neccessary? I think if theres nothing connecting them it looks uniform enough for people to know, but Gilligan had a point about the easternmost island.

Here it is with the numbers

What about naming it the Islands of Kyklades? Or Kyklades Islands? That would make it clearer; but I would either change the name (But I think you said you didn't want to) or move the easternmost island a little closer.

I don't think the route around the islands are necessary.

Move the word Zakynthos down a little. It's hard to see the connection there.

Wow...

I think the old AG map is pretty good (definitely not my first choice for a revamp)...

However - this version is uber sweet - personally I can't see any problems with it as is...

The ocean paths around the island helps to show that the territory is All the islands...
