If the new font doesn't work, fine, look for another. But please find a font that doesn't look like it's from the cover of a colouring book.

natty dread wrote:The objective truth is that the old font is horrible and doesn't fit this or any other map. It's tacky, tasteless, cheesy, and inappropriate for the theme of the map. Africa is not a funny and whimsical la-la-land. Implying that it is simply condescending and racist. This very map was made as a prize of sorts for a charity drive to help the impoverished people of Africa, and a "funny and humorous" font is EXTREMELY inappropriate in that context.
natty dread wrote:The old font looks like it belongs on a map like doodle earth, and if that's what you want to do, to create a "doodle africa" then that's fine with me, but the rest of the map doesn't look like that... the look and style of the map looks more like a "serious" geographical representation of Africa, not a joke map like doodle earth.

Gillipig, I don't know if you have a problem with reading, or with comprehending what you read, but can you please stop posting useless drivel about things you don't know anything about? Thanks.

AndyDufresne wrote:Nobodies, would it be possible to make the small map...even a little smaller? It's pretty big / tall, and it looks like it might be possible to make it smaller. The only thing I like more about Africa, over Africa II, is that it is smaller and fits in your window nicer.
