Seriously i think you saw another map. :?
I scaled an original map of switzerland , i don't see so many differences (the few differences i see, are reasonable changes due to set a balanced gameplay).

show: map

show: original


Anyways i have only two critics:
- about lakes and water ingeneral, could be done better. The actual you have appear a bit sticked on this beautiful map.
- I like if you add only a bit of color in the darker schaffhausen and genève zones.

Hey, I have an update coming out in about an hour. I meant to have it ready last week, but couldn't finish everything I wanted to because I didn't have enough time.

I don't think it's as much not going anywhere because of lack of effort, but more as that there aren't really comments coming in. And honestly I think this is because there isn't much left to do here. So let's check out wca's update and see what else people find is in need of fixing? As I recall there were only one or two changes to be made :)
Oh, and sorry to be so blunt about this but pamoa the map you posted is an eyesore — a lot coming at you and I like the subtle feel of Kap's style better.

v46
I didn't make any major changes, just a few small things.
1. made the borders darker
2. made the river darker and more chalk-like
3. made the mountains purple like they were on Kap's version.
4. and maybe a few very small things. I don't really remember.

What do you guys think of it?

Spelling mistake in the title Schweiz in German
CH comes from the Latin denomination Confoederatio Helvetica

Official Names for Switzerland

Helvetic Confederation (en)
Schweizerische Eidgenossenschaft (de)
Confédération suisse (fr)
Confederazione Svizzera (it)
Confederaziun svizra (rom)
Confoederatio Helvetica (lat.)

Is it ok to leave the "Svizzera - Suisse - Chweiz" where it is (after I fix the spelling...) or should it be changed to have those full names?

Kap's map, he is leaving, wca takes over GFX, I did XML. Andy handed over the first post to wca.

Yep. Kap was done working on the map so killing and I offered to take it over. Since I'm doing the graphics, Andy did one of his mod power things and made it so I controlled the first post, so I could easily edit it and update the most recent images.

1) Does Brig connect to Url (Or is it Uri?) and Ticino? It is kind of hard to tell
2) It seems very strange to have borders run into mountains, and then continue to go under the same montain and out the other side. It also looks very weird. Where Im seeing this is southern Fribourg, western Unter-Walden, and northern Sion. For northern Sion, you could just move that small mountain up a bit, that might help.
3) Some mountains overlap onto others, and I see that this is a problem especially on corners. It appears that in some places you have attempted to fix this, but in others you have not.

Good suggestions.
I'll try to fix all of those.

And yes, Brig does connect to Uri and Ticino.
I'll try and make that clearer.

you can leave this title although it would be more correct to put them in the following order due to the language importance
Schweiz - Suisse - Svizzera

German 64%, French 20%, Italian 7%
