Yeuh-Shi is in the bottome of the northern Shu, and Yeuh-Sui is right below it


Yes I can see that, I asked sam in case I missed a change from his list . . .


ok now i think its already right, but i have a slight feeling looking at the many maps, that yueh-shi is yueh sui and yueh-sui is jianti. not 100% sure, ill look into it in a bit.

I would rather change the font to a litter colour than change continent colours.

I think the text is legible now as it is.

The only problem I have is the blue army numbers on the dark blue territories in the North East region. Only those are a bit hard to read.

May just be easier to slightly lighten that region . . .

The text for the bonuses for the main whole continents looks like it is a little bit transparent for two of the three. The blue and red text look lighter than the green text.

Also, the "9" after the blue text bonus looks lower than the rest of the text, but this is probably just the way the font is.

And the second line of the quotation might look better if you centered it by moving it a little bit to the right.

Great map.

The green text is slightly darker due to the compliants that it was hard to read.

Thats the way the font presents itself when typed.

Easy fix
