many territories are very small could the whole map be enlarged slightly (do not know how this fits with dimensions but im sure there is room for expansion

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.

I don't like how Uluru is there (By the way, Uluru is the Aboriginal name for it, other people call it Ayres Rock)
I don't like the texture for the sea.

Wisse...thanks for your feedback...I appreciate what you say, but on maps I am using from that time, which I guess are historical and regional to this area, it is known as the Dutch East Indies, and that is what I will be using.

NB: Uluru has been replaced in the map above and shown instead is a "Betty Bomber" - one of the Japanese aircraft which bombed Darwin on 19 Feb 1942 - air raids in which 243 people were killed.

Yes, thanks for that offering Gozar. I am currently investigating some options right now just when you wrote that.

I am even considering an entire re-working of colours and fonts to enable place names to stand out more.
