Looks great! Though I am having difficulty seeing the textures on the grey areas of the Township.

It is there but as with Dodge's Gris Mill and Ferry, it is slightly different to the others "in the field"

Could you make the texture more apparent?

Ah, Sully, isn't there already enough going on ggfx wise in that area without trying to "flesh out" some texture?

The only issue I see now cairns is that the legends text on the right needs t stand out a little more. It looks to flat on that watermark underneath and some colours are swallowed up. I think a glow on those legends that match the terr names should solve this problem.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

Gimil, firstly let me remind you that "to flat" should be "too flat"...which has now been done to death but i see it still appears.
I've already been through this one and tried to make it stand out more, and i have tried to put a glow around the text unsuccessfully, because what happens is that you lose the watermark image in the background and i don't want that. Besides a white glow that matches the terr names look hideous.
To boot, it is an odd combination of colours but that is the design of the map.
I think 90% of it stands out reasonably well, more so particularly on the big map. ;)
Overall, i'm pretty happy with it.

Have to agree with cairnswk on this one. The text looks nice and even. No need to try and get it to stand out more. Nothing really important to GP there.

Saying that though, some of the text is shiny while others are flat. Can it be all of one or the other?

I think that the only text that is hard to read is the "Judges can bombard ...". Everything else looks fine to me.

Maybe try a black shadow or a black stroke around the right side legend text. Then blur it into the background so that it only accentuates the text but isn't prominent by itself.

I think that is a colour perception...perhaps.

Version 28 - lge and small .pngs

I've applied an extrude function in the same direction as the map text shadow to the legend, I think this works better than anything else i've tried previously...and yes, lifts the legend ;)
