ofcourse I saw your start in HCS, but I had not energy and time to comment or help you. great gameplay, great graphics. I more like version where all regions are stripped, so not only borders. it is much more "redable".
also the change of font helps.

one question: did/do you think to do castles "independent" areas? it should be fine.
I had broken my right hand (4-5 month ago) and now I have wrong adherent knucklebone of the thumb. therefore I have some problems with it and I must end my works on maps.sorry my english

I like the new solution better visually... but I wonder if it shows the mixed regions well enough.

As for the castles or palaces as independent regions... I wasn't planning on it. The castle and palace just indicate the territory's value.

I thought the same thing (of both parts of the post).

That might do it... I was thinking maybe a sort of dashed outline might work as well (alternating colors).... which now that I think about it, is essentially what you have now. Maybe make the lines longer?

Well here I widened the stripes, and I also tweaked the colours somewhat.

I think it looks better now.

They're different enough. Colourblind checks check out.

How do you do that, if I may?

Maybe I'm imagining things here, but didn't I see a version with the continents fully colored in with their respective colors? That should make things more clear, I would think.

I keep some colourblind mice in my locker. Every time I make a map I take them out and make them look at it, then they tell me if they find it hard to understand.

Lately, I've become lazy and just use GIMP's colourblind filters, though.

I don't think clarity is really a problem here, except maybe for some of the striped areas. Fully coloured continents don't fit the ancient asian style of the map.

I am not colorblind, but tang and silla are similar to me. You might have a good contrast or brightness level, but not all people have it high as well. Maybe some other color? More yellowish?


FASTPOSTED - yeah, looks better now. Thanks.
