I can definitely see the difference. **NOTE** I'm not color blind. To me I am fine with how it is. I was only merely offering the suggestion since it was a solution to avoid having two browns next to each other.

Yeah it is awfully close... A whole sale flip of colors might be best, say E Skyland for AC? A red right next to green is just gonna look virtually identical to the color blinded in most cases. But if you can fiddle with the hues some more and make it work, that'll be fine too.

so you're telling me that I have to switch colors around so that in the colorblind image two "browns" are not next to each other... even though they are noticeably different?

I am not sure I'd say the colors are 'noticeably' different, as I don't think they are 'remarkably' different as is in the definition of noticeable. The 'Gateway' bonus zones probably fall under noticeably different, however.

I'm not familiar with the effort that goes into map making but how hard is it to change the background colors? Is it like in microsoft paint where you click the fill bucket and can just click the region to change the color and then save the background as an underlaid texture?

its not difficult, but pointless imo. yes, the colors are similar, but they are able to be differentiated (prob spelled that wrong lol) between, and i assumed thats all that was needed, correct? the whole map could be different shades of brown, but if the regions can be told apart from each other then whats the difference?

if its gonna hold the map back then we'll obviously make a change, but if its not lets close the book on this...

if it's easy to do and it helps the map look better then why not simply do it?

I ran the small through vischeck and these are the results:

As you can see the Atlantic City and Delaware River on the Deuteranope result, the playable area colors are close together, while on the minimap, you can see the difference.

This is the current image.. I did adjust them the page before..
and they are not in the 1st page update, because I wanted to check if this was a good enough change.

I'd say it's not the same image you are working with Isaiah40

The colors are where I want them for a reason, they aren't randomly placed.. and they are easy to change, but there isn't a reason to change them.. other than someone doesn't like two "brown" colorblind colors next to each other..

Hello, I am just one color blind guy giving his opinion. There are different people with different color limitations but here is how I see this map.

Love the map, would play it all day. The boundaries are well defined. the regions are easy for me to see. The regions are easily defined by colors and I can see the key to know the values to the regions. I like the fact you have made key that explains the values for the regions a small map that mirrors the big map. Sometimes this is just in writing hoping the color will be enough to tell you the value. Your map makes this very easy.

As for the red/green area, nice job with a boundary. Generally if there is a boundary you can see the difference. the best example is a stop sign. They place the white around the stop sign to highlight the red. Otherwise if there is a tree behind the sign it would just be gone. I can see a cardinal (a red bird) and it looks red, it flies into a tree and the red is gone, looks just like a drab bird. So, nice job, easy to see. Better than the different shades of a same color.

Again, this is just one color blind guy but this map looks very friendly for me to play!
Thanks
bob
