you guys are conspiring against me. I like the gradient in the oceans in the poll...but i'm not a big fan on gradients in the ocean just in general. Real oceans dont have gradients...

I think it looks much better, though I still like the gradients whether they're realistic or not. Brightens it up. Lol :wink:

These aren't the modern times with night vision and whatnot. We can't see at night. Bad idea.

Guys, this is going to be an awesome map and sorry for not saying anything earlier, but maybe if the mountains are on a different layer you can tweak that layer's colour levels a little so that the mountains look less like poo.

Well lets see...


---It looks playable, though I would've liked some sort of shadow for the flag...just something that would help enhance a well created map.

Edit: I meant under the flag, some sort of shadow showing the time of day. ;)

I'll have to give it a playtest when it is up!

There is a shadow... Maybe I'm seeing things but I see a small fuzzy little shadow behind the flags.

now that i think about it, i may have meant to put some more thought into the locale of those flags. Who knows, we'll see how they play in the games.

Well once everyone gets a play test or two in, we'll chime in on if there are better positions, I could maybe think of a few though, but we'll see how everything turns out.

I soon will have an open spot, and will hopefully get to play test your map. I'll chime in with my own thoughts later once that is going on, and then if there is a general consenus among quite a few people some changes can be implemented.

They are extra bonuses. If you hold the blue continent for example you get the standard bonus of 5 i believe. If you hold the country with the blue flag as well, you get another 2 armies added.
