Also Lanaudiere should have an accent grave (down to the right) not an accent aigu (up to the right). (Sorry, no international keyboard here at work.)

True like this:
Lanaudière and here are the other corrections:

Îles-de-la-Madeleine
Sept-Rivières
Chaudière

Just copy these and paste them onto your map! :D

http://www.gouv.qc.ca/portail/quebec/pg ... x/?lang=en

try to retain the characteristic long straight edge of minganie. on the government map, the dotted area close to the border is disputed land that is administered by newfoundland & labrador, but claimed by québec.

can you explain what you mean better? I'm sorry my brain is acting broke, and I can't understand no matter how many times I read it.. :oops:

If you are having trouble with the second part, I believe he means that most of the border between Goose Bay and Minganie should be a straight line (or at least a line of latitude, so it might curve, depending on the projection of the map). The small upward tooth at the west end looks okay to me, and at the east end there should be a sharp turn due south.

As far as the first part goes, I guess he is saying that, for example, you could enlarge Laurentides or Montréal at the expense of Outaouais and Lanaudière, provided you do not separate those two, even though on the Quebec government map, they do not border each other.

right again! i didn't notice that montréal doesn't border lanaudière on the government map. it does on the bonjourquebec.com tourist map (see inset on bottom right).

Great map Tish.

I hope to be playing it soon.

I would love to see a Plains of Abraham map where the English met the French in Quebec. It was avery historic battle for North America.

I'm sure there are other colors you can use besides yellow and green twice. Add Orange to a yellow and Purple, swap Duplessis with Newfoundland and give Newfoundland purple. Other colors work too, but two of the same colors makes no sense to me when there are hundreds of them. Colorblindness is a problem, but with a wide enough color scheme, there won't be any problems.

I think the current colours are ok, since there's a minimap it's not that important to have unique colours for each...

Though I don't have the final say on the matter i think the colors are good, and as natty said we have the mini-map to determine what bonuses are what.

I forgot to mention that Chalevoix is actually Charlevoix.

I'll have to agree. Other mapmakers are able to find 8 distinct colours (even for the colour-impaired). Having 4 separate bonus areas with the same two colours aren't cool, even if no-one is confused by it.

Have either of you ever looked at an old map? There are generally only about 4 colors. I like how this one turned out.

Yes, I have. But this isn't an old map, nor should anyone mimic an old one. All maps need to be original, but this one is too bland. Look at the one before the revamp, all the colors lined up great bar the gray which was a slot filler. Nevertheless, it did fit the region. This region in Canada does not fit the green, yellow, or blue climate color people associate it with. Why should it be left do dull when it can be bright and full of life? Creating this map, that was one of my goals. Attracting attention to this region, not just remaking an old map.

Color blind(Impaired, which ever you prefer), like this map; however, it is bland to the others. There is a middle ground where everyone can have the advantage, this option is having a differ in color.

I personally do not see a reason why this is such a big request. It will give more life to the map and make it even more fun to play for both the colored and uncolored seeing players. Tisha, what is your take?

For what it's worth, I offer the colours I used in my entry (#1) to use if you like. Those are colourblind-proof and I think fit the theme as well... http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/8840/gulf5s.png

Really, don't sit here an tell me my map is dull, or not bright. Not original, when I made it. Maybe adjust your screen..

I don't even know what you mean when you say

"This region in Canada does not fit the green, yellow, or blue climate color people associate it with."

And why shouldn't anyone mimic an old map? The region has old French history, and that where my idea flowed from. Most of the older maps only used three to four colors. I think to take that away would ruin the whole style I used.. that people did vote for.
Changing the colors isn't a middle ground, and I doubt it will satisfy you... you're saying you don't like the whole style.

The coloring looks fine to me, it looks like an old map, a little bright for the time period IMO, but they work for everyone. So I say let's not argue over the colors and just get the XML done so we can get this into Beta!! Can we all at least agree on that?

Forgive me for not uploading this somewhere.. Time crunch and I lost my old ripway account login.

This was the latest (Forza checked and approved) xml from the last time the map made a run through the foundry. All of the borders are correct, per the original approval of the gameplay, as well as the bonuses, and the force of splitting up the regions to prevent getting dropped a bonus, or something along those lines... Only the co-ordinates should need changed, unless there was any big XML reader updates. Mind you this was written maybe.. a year ago or so, can't remember exactly.

show: Golfe du St. Laurent XML


Feel free to use it to save some time, or re-write it. Whatever floats your boat. Glad to see this map finally getting into the Beta stage. :)
