I was talking in a doubles game with my good-natured opponents and they had almost convinced me that 2 neutrals for all sea regions, including the expedition routes, might be a desirable thing.
Then the update went through and I'm convinced you did the right thing making them 3 neutrals. My bonuses are rather large now
My oppenents (not using BOB or the large map) thought that a higher contrast for the region names on the land would help a lot, as one of them was having some difficulty reading them.
Love, love, love this map, thank you Shakeycat! (btw the opposing team likes it too)
