Possibly, anyone else think this is an issue? For now I will try playing with the light settings, but i quite like the contrast...

Fair point, it is a fine example of my sometimes lazy map making, i will correct it.
natty_dread wrote:And btw, red text on a green background never works... I'm referring to "junkie" in the upper right corner. Stash in the lower center area is also hard to read, same with Junkie CI...
I find it readable, then again i suppose i know what it says, although i would prefer not too change it too much as i would like to keep the graphics as close to the originals as possible.

I was planning not to change the legend if possible, so we shall see if many other people think it is a problem or not.
edbeard wrote:does the site have a separate legend section yet? imagine how cool this map would be if you could use the whole 800x800 or whatever on the map itself.
Sadly nothing like that at the moment, a lot of things could be made a lot nice if that had been implemented. To be honest as far as i can see since i was last here the only major change for map making is supersizing...

Cheers, i will add that in aswell.

the streets are awesome
Just for you edbeard, here it is at double size, although it looks nowhere near as pretty at this scale as you can see all the error Big version of image

p.s. I'm not back or anything. I was just bored and couldn't sleep and ended up here. If I remember I'll be sure to come back and see the final product
Cheers. Maybe when it is finished you would like to pop back for a quick game to see how the new graphics play.
P.S. Updated the image above.
