im sorry i keep bringing it up, but the legend

its a good size now, but i can hardly read it and i have 20/20 vision. the background behind the fact that the text has a glare effect on it is not good imo. possibly put it in a box w/ a background?

You can see on this map, Delhi is a tiny province between Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.
What you have Labelled as Delhi is in fact Uttaranchal.


I originally thought Uttaranchal would be too long a name, so I changed it to Delhi. I'm not so sure it's that impossible anymore, but is it honestly such a big deal? Classic is much more inaccurate than this map.


I think it's a problem when you move the capital city to some random region. I think accuracy is important unless there are good gameplay or other reasons. I don't think laziness to change it or whatever is a good reason, heh :D

Sure Classic is Inaccurate, but at least the regions are in the right place. Merging 2 regions and then calling it by the name of one is fine, but what you've done is like merging Mongolia and China, calling that China, which is fine, but then renaming Japan as Mongolia, which is not.

If you want Delhi as its own region, why not rename the Haryana one as Delhi, at least that actually covers the land that Delhi is on.

Cheers.

I was under the impression that Delhi was in Uttaranchal, but I guess I was mistaken. I'll find a better name.

Yeah, the link I gave (maybe the same pitcure you used?) is a little misleading on first glace. This map shows it better.

Version 9:
I know it's been a while, but here it is.
Image

Changes:
-Made the image "pop" a little more, with a little help from the Inner Shadow layer setting
-Set the mini-map to Dissolve, in an attempt to make it look like it is dissolving into the background
-Changed Delhi to Uttaranchal

Comments? Am I moving now?

Are you planning to put a background behind the legend because I'm, and maybe others, finding it very hard to read "Northern India" with the brown dead-land.

Gosh, so many complaints about the legend! I don't know how to win with you guys :P

Skittles!, Coleman said he preferred the lack of a background. Of course, the one that I had was horrible. Still, I agree with him. Maybe I can change the color of Northern India? The problem is that the colors are a little dulled when I post them...

maybe you should put an image where the blue water is. May spice it up. Other than that, looks awesome!

Thanks. I generally don't like images and whatnot, but I'm up for anything that works. What do you suggest? A picture of Ghandi perhaps? I like that idea because he was opposed to the Pakistan-India split.

I really don't like the pink. The other colors are great. The area outside the map needs more work. I like the water.

I like the pink and blue best. Colors are going to be a personal preference though.

I believe a flag might be in order, as well as a picture of Ghandi.

The rivers could stand a graphical update. I suggest making them thinner and more realistic.

Finally, there seems to be a circle missing in Eastern India. I'm not sure what the name of that territory is either.

Keep up the good work.

I'm just stating the it's hard to read the blue of Northern India to the brown of the dead-land. It leaves an awful shade behind it which reflects the words so much it's hard to read.

I really hate that river as well, I'll redo it.

The problem with a flag and Ghandi is that the totally biases India. This is, after all, more a map of a geographical region than a political one, hence the name Indian Subcontinent. So maybe I could do all the countries' flags, and maybe Ghandi will work despite what I just said, but I'd like others' opinions on that.

The "missing circle" is not in fact missing. That area you see is part of West Bengal. I've been waiting on comments about that. How do you think I can make it clearer that the river does not split the territory in two?

I understand. I'll try to find a solution. The only thing is I don't know how well the colors will translate. They are all much more vibrant on my desktop than on the Internet.

I don't like you army circles. I'd prefer a uniform color form them rather then that effect you did. I guess what I'm saying is I like version 6's circles better.

After next update I'll probably release you into the wild (aka Main Foundry).


I've released three versions since you said this, Coleman. Methinks you have not been looking at this thread at all.
