Beyond that, most areas have too many borders.
And, you have some tiny and some huge territories, you could make better use of space.



yeah i know about the borders, i haven't had time to make impossible borders, and the huge territories is for a reason i think, because there are much mountains in the west.

here comes anather update:

Without, and I like the visual style. The sea texture is wonderful. I don;t know whther these are your actual territory boundaries but the two little ones in the darker blue continent and the little one in red probably need to be merged, else on the small version they'll barely be visable. Also one of the yellows needs to be changed in my opinion as they are very similar. Maybe a darker green?

i will merge them and eum the litte one in the red is big enough i think,
and i think i will change the color of the yellow in the right above

But what should i do with the little one in light blue, because thats a very important "state"

I wouldn't bother with sea routes yet. Get the territory boundaries right first and some names up there so we can talk about it properly.

Make it a capital.
Together with mongolia and bejing or something, make it extra bonus.
Do not delete or merge it, but make it more clear, or larger.

One question: what's the black-white country at the right doing there??
I don't understand what it means.

well it's tiny.
Make it just larger, till the end of the outstanding piece of land.
In nederlands:
Maak het groter, tot het uiteinde van het uitstekende stuk land.
Weet niet hoe je dat exact zegt in engels. :D

I like the font.

Nog eens:
Breid shanghai uit zodat het die uitstekende landpunt beslaat.
Je kan ook zeggen dat er 2 baaien zijn aan weerskanten, maar ik bedoel hetzelfde.
Er is namelijk zo'n punt:

-

Om het heel schematisch weer te geven.

i know alot about china-and are you using the wade-giles names of places(ji zhou,yangzhou..).

also-i wanted to do a map based on the three kingdoms era of china

there is a book based on it called "ROMANCE OF THE THREE KINGDOMS".
and game of same name as well as "dynasty warriors" series-it was an intreating time in china and would make an intresting map-ut i dont know how to create one thats any good.

china was half the size making it a tense war.

maps:

http://www.threekingdoms.com/map2.htm

http://www.ibiblio.org/chineseart/conte ... ist04.html

i made a quick(5 min) rough outline of how the regoins were divided(but they were in littler clumps than that even.

http://img512.imageshack.us/my.php?image=chinadt2.png

also three were capitals wich could give bonus

is this an idea i should follow.

suprisingly-shu did very well(my favourite of the three)
