And you appear to talk about this now, when all version had numbers then names?? But, I tried it, and I disliked, it seems more strange. I will mantain this legend since it probably is the better for the most people, unless I return to the old one with ovals (I personally like it more).

...so I'm guessing that you're not going to change "Tagalog"?
Currently on vacation. Sorry.

Here is the legend of the map I got almost all names. No, Im not going to change tagalog. I also know here is written Mindanio instead of Mindanao, but several maps had Mindanao, so I assumed its the correct form.

About the legend effect, fluffy, thanks a lot. But I dont know if I like it as it is. The effect in the light blue letters is much more visible, so its not ok to me... Maybe we can await more opinions, or maybe you can decrease a bit the effect over light blue colour, maybe gray, too.

What do you guys think about it??

Great looking map, but as a person that's color blind... I can't tell hardly any of the continents apart. I know I'm coming in waaay late... But in the future, don't stick colors so similar together. You said earlier what the colors are, so I assume the light blue, blue, pink, and gray are the 4 in the center and bottom right of the map. It just looks like a huge blob to me.

Is this a problem with your monitor? Because I would never say these colours are alike. Im much worried, in fact, about making things easily distinctive. Because of this I adopted these colours, because I thought this would be the simplest way to realize the continents properly. Sorry, but I couldnt do nothing, because I never knew what you are talking about. I can pm you a list of what countries belong to each continent, if you want.

If you are finished with all the legend tweaking, post an XML image of both the large and small versions, so I can make sure that you've properly centered the army coordinates.

Also (this is a suggestion, not a command), I'd consider perhaps making your name slightly smaller or less conspicuous. Just so it doesn't stand out so much. Of course you don't have to make it so tiny, that it can't be read, but I believe the cartographer's name shouldn't be so prominent. It should just flow with the map, much like how a painter adds his name to a fine piece of artwork.
