DiM, I'm going to abuse of my Foundry Mod powers to replace the link in your OP. Use imageshack, it works. At least for me lol

btw i really hate that horizontal line you have at the top of your legend, it "cuts" the mast of both ships.

imageshack is a no. i hate that site. it has the stupidest interface ever created.
normally i used photobucket which has a very user friendly interface and i can keep track of my files very easy.
however photobucket insists on resizing anything above 1mega and since this image is 1.6 it's shrunk a lot unless i save it at a lower quality. and this is jpg. if i save it as png it's hell.
imageshack does not resize my images but it has the shittiest interface ever.
so i found post image.org which has a really neat interface and it does not resize my images. but apparently people can't see the images. no idea why :(

i'll guess i'll have to look for yet another hosting site with a big enough file limit and good interface.


as for the horizontal line, that's there to mark the legend space. i will probably do some flowery thing, a nicer border or something, so don't worry about it.

the line isn't the problem but the line cutting the sails is looking weird.

I been struggling to like looking at this map for some time and have discovered why :

1- MAIN problem for me is the way the land is filled in. Those diagonal lines are not easy on the eye at all :shock:
2- The ships (On right and left) are tilted and just look strange. I think it'd be better if they were all horizontal.

1. i can lower the opacity of the lines.
2. having all of them horizontal will give an artificial feel .

i have solved my photobucket problem. apparently i had gotten too close to the 10GB bandwidth limit for free accounts and my upload options were moved to less than 1Mega per image. but now the limit was reset (since the new year) and i can upload full size.

so here's V5. i hope it's visible for all.
*lower opacity for diagonal line pattern on the continents
*lower opacity for the continent colours

Does any costal region include ports and every island? Or any costal area in their proximity?

That's why I use imageshack, which doesn't have any bandwidth or storage limits. I currently have a bit below 2000 images stored on my shack account.

i don;t like the interface on imageshack.
anyway, the main problem was that i had some images on this photobucket account that were done for a website and those images caused the main traffic. i'll just move them to another photobucket account and it will be fine. :mrgreen:
