I really like this map. The only things I see wrong are those already addressed, so all I can say is that this is really looking good.

Downloaded a whole bunch of lovely new fonts for you to choose from. All have been scaled to the maximum size they need to be to fit in all territs. Annoyingly there is a 12 option limit on the polls ( :x ) so I've had to put some in one option. If you vote for one o em, could you post with which one please, even if you say nothing else :)

Also noticed I have two identicly named territs, is Denmarks fault but I'll rename the one in sweeden.

:shock:

The poll appears to be having a spaz.

:|

Doesn't seem to be much I can do about it.

I'll post a bug report to see if I can get it sorted.

In the mean time, could you use the old fasioned posting untill I can get this sorted. :)

It's a glitch in the polls that occurs in threads that were made when the board was on the old software - PM Andy and he can fix it, but you'll have to do that every time you want to post a poll ](*,)

Alternatively, you could start a new thread, since you're still on square 1, basically.

I think that Albo, Laland, and Imbrae are the best. I am going more for clarity than style though.

Re: Medieval Denmark- PICK-A-FONT-NEEDS VOTES!

Postby e_i_pi on Sun Nov 23, 2008 2:23 pm

Lookin sweet balsie.

I'm not going to vote in the poll (personally, I think there are far too many options hehe), but I'll give some feedback on things I think you should consider when choosing a font:
  • Something from the appropriate era
    • Good examples: Anund, Othaens (either), and Gything
    • Not so good examples: Moon, Langeland, Flacke
  • Something clearly legible
    • Good examples: Stro, Hox, Faxae
    • Not so good examples: Langeland, Vaetlands, Tuzae (? - the one north of Flacke and west of Tunae)
  • Something that will definitely fit in the smaller spaces
    • Good examples: Burghaendaeholm, Faruthusae, Halmstath
    • Not so good examples: Gything, Hox, Salstaer
Hope that helps :)

I'd agree that there are too many options for me to make a meaningful choice. Legibility is paramount - anything beyond that is down to artistic temperament!

If you wanted to get a better feeling for popular opinion, why not pick 3 or 4 you're happy with, and put them up for a vote?

Right A new map with the most popular fonts. Please note that with Vaendle on the dark red continent, the V looks like a D so it reads "Daendle". This may be a problem. Sorry for taking so long but its a hectic time for me in rl. ;)

Assuming that this is the version you wanted to get opinions on, then I'd plump for the font on the green region.

Oh, and Happy Christmas:
