The middle part of the legend has lots of empty space on the sides though. You can make it narrower.DiM wrote:what sort of bombardment is that if the ships are all grouped together?
Well I think keeping the image at a compact size should take priority - supersize is only supposed to be granted for maps that can't fit everything in normal size, not for giving the map more "realistic" graphics...
the little space i have in the legend will be filled to the brim in the small map. take a look at the images i posted above and you'll see how much the text needs to be scaled up to be made visible. so regardless how much space i save by cramping the ships together it won't mean anything because i can't make the legend much smaller.
here's a resize of the map to 800*800 (my small) notice how the text in the legend fills everything up?
now ofcourse i could jam al the ships together but that wouldn't help a bit. in fact it would jut cause the map to look imbalanced with a lot of unused space in the lower part and filled to the brim in the upper part. the way i have it now makes use of space in a very balanced manner.
