All lines have now their black under glow and the L14 color is red instead of purple, for a better readability.
Some rails were also moved, for improve the continuity of the line at each station.

We also reduce the size of the map to 806x747, by reducing the surround and moving the title, but the playground size didn't change.

You know, it'd be nice if you could add a little graphic flair to the troop boxes. Right now, they kind of look like someone clipped a bunch of coupons out of the map. There probably isn't much you can do though, because of their number and size, but I've often liked it when maps employed a unique troop shadow / box that was a part of the theme (like Arms Race! or Siege!, etc).

Best,

A little Parisian flair would be quite welcome, to whatever you'd wanna add it too, boxes, legend, etc, etc.

Some suggestions about territories decorations

1/ add a black thin border, like BBS or gND.
2/ change the background color of main Rail Stations with grey, like gLZ
3/ change only the title background color with black for main Rail Stations, like REP
4/ add a bordering pattern around main Rail Stations like gCH

Our opinion is the solution 1 for common stations and portes. and 4 for main stations. Just changing the background color of the pattern from the current dark grey to black

I love gCH for all of he main stations. That works really well. gLZ is awful. REP does not work.
Could the edges be rounded out on the small stations a little to make the map slightly less boxy.

Overall, I like it. I can already tell this will be a great addition to clan warfare.

Qyu, have you thought about how you are going to make this all fit on the small map? I see major problems with the station numbers as they are pretty small now, and when you shrink it down they will be unclear and hard to read.

That is a lot of black. You couldn't have picked another color for the land or the decorations up top. When I look at this map it makes me depressed. I want to lay down in my bed pull the covers over my head and cry. Sorry being a little dramatic. It is a lot of black though.

I get what you are saying, but I think the black and the contrast (like in the silhouette) is a pretty nice aesthetic touch for this map. If the top decoration flairs could be made some other color, and could keep a decent contrast, I'd probably be fine with it, but I like the black overall.

I love the black silhouette of the city and the land background has a neat look (like an overview of Paris at night). I agree that the decorative pieces could be made more lively. Maybe the background could be just a touch bluer. Qyu could try that and see if it looks good. It might not.

[Moved]

Two fortnightly review periods have passed without any updates or meaningful engagement from the mapmaker(s),therefore the map is considered stalled. If the mapmaker wants to continue with the map, then one of the Foundry Moderators will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system, after an update has been made. ;)

The six months of vacation has expired, for this reason this topic is now labeled as [Abandoned]. An action, as stated in our Abandoned map policy has been taken. If the original mapmaker wants to continue this map project it's fine but a real update must provided. From this moment anyone else is free to continue this project without the original mapmaker permission, but it has to be started from the scratch.
