I think that's being pedantic - one is darker than the other and that is reflected on the map.

Hmm looking at it again - i'd lighten Selucus North to make it clearer. I'm assuming they are the same colours (the key and the colour) they don't look quite the same?

I'm not sure. Both empires controlled the other's area (plus more) at their height, so its tough to say. The map I used as a reference for this time period labeled the borders that way, so I think i'll just leave it.


There was no such empire as the mesopotamian empire, mesopotamnia is the area between the tigris and euphrates, assyria had the northern part of it for quite some time, which is accurate to the map, but the region labelled mesopotamia is outside the area that is mesopotamia... anyway now I sound like a prat.

Apart from that I think the map is excellent!

Perhaps empire was the wrong word to use, but there was a "mesopotamian" peoples, considered the first "civilization" in that they no longer relied on hunting and traveling constantly.

And yes, I realize its a geographic location between the tigris and the euphrates, but i'm not sure my map isn't showing that location as mesopotamia. Perhpas some parts of what would be considered that location are clipped off, but I think its generally located correctly.

try switching the shading on the water so that playable areas have the lighter vibrant shade of blue. the playable seas would then stand out more than the non-playable seas. as it is now the shade of the out-of-play water takes attention away from where the action is. seems like it would make more sense the other way around.

I think the addition of the dots makes a big difference...

So lets see the small map with army coordinates (and link to regular)

The large map with army coordinates (and link to regular)

Along with a link to the XML.
