Take a look at this.
Tetovo & Skopje look very similar. Bitola & Strumica as well. If you do the changes I said, it will be much easier for colour blind people to see these bonus zones.

porkenbeans wrote:Sorry nat,
but you are dead wrong. A mini-map is indeed needed here. Not only for the colorblind issue, but for the sake of overall clarity itself. Who wants to keep looking back and forth from the map to those little boxes to determine whats what ? It is needless confusion, when a mini-map gets the job done perfectly, with but a glance.
Anything that would allow the viewer to quickly and easily, visually establish the bonus values, and their correlation to each other, would make this map much better to understand, regardless of any color blind issues.ender516 wrote:I'm going to side with natty on the mini-map issue, but I wonder if pork doesn't have a point (that perhaps he wasn't trying to make ): maybe the bonus values could be placed directly on the map itself, in a manner similar to the Third Crusade. Voila, no more glancing back and forth.

1. The tiny bit of grey within each mountain grates with me... I know it's supposed to look like snow, but I think it would look cleaner without it
MrBenn wrote:2. The order of bonuses in the legend would be better if it followed a logical order from looking at the map. I'd suggest amending the order as follows:
Tetovo | Skopje
Ohrid | Kumonova
Veles | Stip
Bitola | Berova
_____ | Strumica

Hmm.. I came up with this by looking at the map and realized it's exactly the same as Andy suggested. This fits the maps left/right feel, imo.
