The font is vector, so I doubt the pixelyness and I myself don't see it. There is an outer glow with some noise attached because I like the look and that might be what you're talking about.

Well its like an easy-to-conquer asia right now, with an ausralia right next to it. That's a bonus of 8 with 3 territories to defend.

I'm aware.
I'm pretty sure zooming on anything makes it look pixely....


Also, I agree with keyogi and unriggable it will be changed to 5 does that work for you guys? or should we go as low as 4?

5 not 4 if you really want to lower the bonus.

i'll update the xml when a clear conclusion is reached.

this is using gimils notched edges thing and with the changed bonus(I think I got that changed on this update if not it's the next one)

As for the font wisse, switch to a 19 inch CRT it looks great on one of those.

The black outergolw is far to dark on the legends. take the opacity down a notch to two. And the font is to bold and strong. Either take that opacity down or reduce the boldness a little.

Postby BeakerWMA on Fri Sep 07, 2007 8:05 am

I think it will be a great map, although, just to be picky a number of area names seem to be crossing over their borders (Pyrenees, Finestere, Nievre to name 3) and some others could do with some centering.
But looks sharp.
I am serious...and don't call me Shirley.

KEYOGI wrote:The map's starting to shape up quite nicely. I don't have time for a detailed look, but something that is quite obvious to me is the placement of territory labels. For example Pyrenees, Garonne, Tarn, Ardeche, Mayenne. There's others as well, but perhaps see if you can better place the labels to not crowd the borders when it's not needed.

I understand you want to keep the english version of the area names, but for the territory names it's just typos:
Haute Vienne, Cote du Nord, Pas de Calais, Lozerre are the correct ones.

Postby Gilligan on Sun Sep 09, 2007 11:00 am

There's no E in Cote du Nord. Or S in Hautes Vienne.

As far as centerization, I think Cote du Nord should be a little farther right.
