this needs to be cleaned up a little muddled and confused after a quick glance

Kick following territories (my suggestions)
Biak, Choisuel.

perhaps join some territories:
Arawera + N.. Britain + Rabaul (that island)
Bosabura + Gona-Buna + Kokoda (middle of that continent)
P. Morseby + Tufi + Miine Bay (south of that continent)

Kill some islands not used

Qwert...water can represented by many things...it doesn't have to be blue in colour, and it doesn't have to have wave texture.
The water in this case is represented by a wooden background.
It is called "artisitc license" in case you haven't heard of it....the same sort of artistic license you used in your Iwajima map. Thanks for your response anyway.

1. the red and blue text from the ships is unreadable.
2. you have very small territories it's gonna be a bitch arranging the army numbers.
3. what the heck is the red thing from the bottom it looks like lava or something.

It's Ayres Rock, or Uluru.

And why is it there? It's more South. The map doesn't need it. It makes it look bad. Also, the lines from the ships don't look too nicely with the background.

Boberz...thanx for your feedback.

This map is already at max size for the small version which I have been told is 600 px wide.

The large version will be bigger of course at 800 px wide.

Qwert, thanx for dropping by....given there are 10 regions...this will possibly be another 60 territory map, similar to Cairns Coral Coast.

I liked the wooden look, but the blue does look better.

You may want to put dashes pointing to the territories from the names.

The rock of whatever looks funny down there.

Looking nice!

Gozar...thanx, yes I agree about the blue looking better.

The rock is called Uluru - formerly Ayres Rock.

At present it is a space filler, as those territories above it don't extend that fdar into the interior of the continent, I don't want to add another territoiry there as there is already too many.

As for the names, there will be several re-shuffles of the deck chairs!

I'll see if there are viable alternatives that I can image there.
