Well, this map got a whole lot sexier. Maybe use a secondary font for the smaller text, it's a tad hard to read. And the Spring/Summer/Winter/Fall thing at the top-right is really squished, see if you can make it less. And maybe explore new background images, this one doesn't have really anything distinguishable. Also, change your signature font.

If you are no longer doing the elements and the seasons, then maybe the colours need to be unified. I mean, if Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces are all winter blue in the legend, shouldn't they be the same on the map?

Well, the issue there is they're all adjacent bonus areas, so it'd be hard to distinguish between them.

Then change the legend to use the proper colours. The seasons are denoted by the symbols on the troop circles. Of course, those will be hidden by the numbers, which is why I originally suggested (I think) that the symbols surround the circles, so that they would be more visible.

Which is another reason we are allowing this to go supersize a tad bit to make it clearer.

rsacheli, are you working on a slightly larger version to help with the clarity issues? If so can we please see the larger sizes?

I havent started making a larger version... yet... I want to try to keep this size if I can...
I will change the glows to make it more readable...
Ill also play with expanding the season markings beyond the circles...

As for my signature font, whats wrong with that? It should be different from the main font so that its not confused with the rest of the map text?

Well those few changes look better. But you are going to have to make this small bigger so that the 888's don't overlap each other in a few spots. Upsize this to 700x670 for the small and put the 888's on it so we can see them please. I don't think you will have to go any larger than this for the small, as for the large you probably won't have to go any bigger, but I'll let my other carto's give their opinion as well.

when did it switch to 888? it used to be just 88 and if it went triple digits then it remained centered on the circle and that was that...

Actually, just the fist 2 8's are centered.

Hello! Don't know if that's been asked before. So forgive me if I am repeating the question. But I wonder why the sign shapes are not present in the map. Having such a clear and definite theme, it seems natural that the signs can be seen in the map. At least the outlines of the constellations. Also, shouldn't the stars in the map mirror the real stars in the sky?
