Berwick is a weird one that probably should be changed. The region there is know as borders. There are no big towns aroudn there.

North Berwick is a small town in East Lothian.

Berwick-on-tweed is in England!

Problem is I'm not quite sure what to call it as the others in that "country" are also part of Borders.

Thanks wisse! :)

The above map shows all the current authority names in Scotland (equivalent of counties in England). Might be of help?

Thanks it was a map simular to that i was working off but i have no idea how it was made as it seems to have an infinate amount of mistakes (including the Bute/Arran mix up which is near whare my family come from so i would never usally make that mistake) , The berwick problem is interesting, i will look through a few maps to see if that reagon has any names (if not i'll just call it borders)

Visually, I can't even read the territory names in the blue and purple regions, and I can barely read any of the others. The bonus box needs to be reworked to be more readable and indicate what regions they're for. I honestly couldn't tell you what half of the regions were.



Still all true.

how come you cut ireland out? i'd have left the north in, in the same way that you have the north of england. makes more sense, plus it would fill that wee corner nicely

You've put the textures on the original version of the map with all the spelling mistakes.

I like the frist texture quite a bit. Not keen at all on the second.

i will try to change the base map soon but i was focusing on getting the names right first, we are having at the moment to keep on e-mailing the maps between two networks, one of which refuses to accept half the e-mails it receave so unfortunatly the map will often be out of date as we have to use the best map avalable on the computer with the right software

i see you added the same texture to all the countries. i belive you did that because you have everything on one layer.

try using lots and lots of layers. each territory with his own different layer, even each border on its own different layer. this way you can apply different textures and effects to each territory thus making the map look much better.

Ok ive tried out a few things including combining highlands and islands (again, only a low graphics version)
