i don't know. i never watched the mummy and if i see thief beni as a terit name i'll just think it's a random name. hoever famous explorers might sound more familiar.

The names are a great idea! Glad to see it replaced the old Robber lettering system. Definitely coming along nicely. :)

I think the territory label placement in a few areas could use some work, the Ramesses VI and Horemheb area in particular. There's the potential for some unnecessary confusion with how it is at the moment. Maiherpri could also be moved over to the right a bit, so it sits over the territory.

The map looks very nice visually though. Perhaps we can see small and large versions with army numbers for the next update.

Hi jasnosttj...if you check back to P1, you'll see that this map stated out as the actual map, or a version thereof. However, the eveolvelment of the gameplay allowed me to decide to break the valley apart and into separate regions and this is the final design.

There seems to be a bit of excessive blur to the map, in particular some of the territory labels. It looks like a compression problem perhaps, so would you mind posting some higher quality images Cairns?
