Well, lack converts to JPG and compresses them so they are below a certain size... one could estimate this size by checking out existing maps.

I did a test; with a 177kB jpg file i don't see substantial differences of quality ;)

p.s. I've noticed that i forgot to refine the T letter in the faction bonus title on the large version... :roll: ](*,) i'll do it tomorrow.

The legend text is quite hard to read on the small map - particularly the bit about British Military Bases . I'd suggest using a different typeface for the legend.

ok, i'd like to keep the same font if possible O:)
Anyway, after playing with it for some minutes i think i've found an optimal solution.
i've removed part of the text (probably redundant), in this way the text is bigger and more redeable on the small version.
Since the (BMB) part of text was deleted now, in the xml, the bases will be listed without the abbreviation (e.g. akrotiri (British Military Bases))

Instead of "aren't", I think it would be better to use "are not" :P

I think this map is ready for the Final Forge, where the johnnie-come-latelys (and janie-come-latelys) can pose all the questions and suggestions that they should have posed in the Workshops.

I think it would be best to just use "not", like this:

BRITISH MILITARY BASES
(flag) Not part of any bonus,
assault each other and revert
to neutral 2 if held.


(also change attack to assault, before Andy comes complaining about it... :P )

To me, the flags look kinda smudgy.

I would recommend just drawing the flags in the actual size instead of resizing down from bigger flags - you only have one flag so it shouldn't be a huge chore.

I see a weird line going from the bottom of the ship to the lower border. Just left of the words XML Gilligan. Other than that It's looking great, and look forward to seeing this in the forge.

Flags are not resized (except the ones on small version)....as said somewhere previously i'm happy with them as they are.

That line, i hate it. But it's a part of the background texture and it's not so easy to remove as it seems. Now i'm doing a thing on the legend, when ready I'll take care of that hateful line.
Version 7.3 coming soon ;)

The line was removed.
I did a test with underlined titles in the legends instead of using the glow, i'm fine with both so please tell me which version do you prefer. :)

I think I prefer the underline. It seems like every map uses a glow on the text.
