The map is looking superb. I don't see much else. I'd maybe consider adding more of a black outline around the legend text (though that may take away from the soft color feeling).

Also, the attack route from Amapa to Ceara...could you make the black dashes touch land? (As all your other ones do, just thought you might want to make it expertly uniform. ;))

Also, can we see both the large and small version with 3 digit coordinates?

Pardon my idiot language, but adding any more border to the text in the legend made it look quite retarded, and less readable.

The attack route change I implemented and kept.

I agree that the legends is a little difficult to read, but it doesnt affect gameplay so there no real problem. But maybe try the glow you did with the terr names for hte legends? see how it goes. . .

But im happy with it the way it is at the moment.

i agree a light glow would make the legend better

Any smaller and the glow isn't there practically. Any larger and I think it looks stupid.

I don't think it adds anything honestly.

Just to ensure that when the map leaves the Foundry, there is no extreme overlapping of names/other coordinates.

Not quite sure what you mean by this?

1. You don't like the glow

2. You're wondering why it's not "q worded"

just waiting for the q-squadron (I won't say that word yet)

we got a basket of bananas, banana splits, banana shakes, banana coloured pants, and banana shaped pencils waiting for Andy.

I'm sure he's just busy and he'll get to it when he has time.

I love the colours

Postby chetnik on Sun Nov 25, 2007 1:49 am

I am picky towards the colours,
so far, the only good taste in colours is THIS map, alexander the great, middle east. But anyhow, can't wait to play this one.

uh..... i hate to bring this up.. but I think the ocean could be a better a bit darker...

a nice light blue may work for the tropical Caribbean... but it feels out of place here.

I like the color it is now. I think changing it may require the title color to change and right now they have a nice contrast. The water is still obviously water either way.

The water color could go either way for me. It seems the majority of the people that have commented seem to be alright with the current option, but we can see if anyone else feels the same way as mibi.

Closing stretch. :)
